Saeco Vienna Deluxe -- Coffee weak weak weak

When the coffee is weak, that is often because the water is not at adequate temperature.

Check if the coffee is in right quantity and pressed in the right way. If it is than it means that the water was not hot enough.

Check water temperature, if water is completely cold, the element mus be replaced, if water is hot, but not enough, then replace thermostate activating the pump.

My Rancilio Silvia, about three years old, does not seem to be generating sufficient pressure. Standard espresso grind requires about two minutes for a shot and coffee is bitter. Is there any way to...

First things first, remove the screw and shower in the head and clean. Then change grind to something a little coarser, since we are testing the machine we will not tamp the coffee(we are doing this to have a constant in our coffee brewing equation). Note how long it took to brew, if it brewed longer than 40 secs, then adjust grind and try again. If coffee shots looks better and taste better then we are on the right track, we are looking for any thing between 15 and 30 sec depending on the coffee blend from light to dark. If you are getting the same results over 40 secs for a shot no matter what grind you use then the pump needs to be replaced.

Coffee is too weak

Hi there,
I just spoke to someone at customer service. My coffee has been weak and kind of thin. We had the Superautomatica by Saceo for years and I remembered the coffee being richer.
Anyway! The person suggested that I adjust the grind but slowly. So set it to the coarsest setting, brew 2-3 cups. Then put it to the 2nd-coarsest setting, brew 2-3 cups. To the third, brew 2-3 cups. To the forth, brew 2-3 cups. Etc. Until you're at the finest grind setting. Again, brew 2-3 cups. An awfully sensitive machine. It seems to have worked although the last few seconds of brewing continue to be a kind of milky colour (as opposed to a deep black coffee colour). You can, though, press the "cup" button to stop the brew. So once, it starts running milky, you can stop the cycle.
I hope this helps. I know I've been struggling and cursing the machine for a while :)

How can I ajust my machine the coffee is coming out weak and watery I don't get that creamy,strong coffee anymore

There are more than a few things that can cause weak coffee.
Grind is too coarse. It should look like coarse sugar.
You cleaned the brew unit and left a part out or put it in incorrectly.
Grind adjustment is set too high. Turn to a lower # while the grinder is operating.
Grinder is been taken apart and not put back together correctly.
Grinder is broken and the grinds are just big chunks.
