How old is the coffeemaker? Is it used every day? If it is within the one year warranty it can be replaced if you ship it to Presto. Or you can call for more information at 800-877-0441 which is customer service.

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.

Not heating up still cold


I had the same problem after only a few months. There is a float at the side of the water resivour, this float also has a magnet attached to it and for some reason becomes lodged at the bottom of the tank, telling the machine that there is not enough water in the tank, even when there is. Use a magnet on the outside of the resviour, connect it to the one on the inside and lift very slowly upwards...Hey presto the light stops flashing and the water boils

I have a RM 2811 2 way dometic is operates fine in A/C mode no


Hi there. When calling for cold, flame should be large and blue. If orange, clean mixing tube, flue, chimney. If still orange, adjust "air" inlet on mixing tube to get blue flame.
Thanks

Coffee is cold and not brewed properly. Unit has been cleaned,de-calcified, rinsed, but still the coffe is cold. temperature is set to high, and the machine can produce steam. Anyone help?


Check water temp, if water temp is insufficient , most common is scale heating element , faulty element, faulty thermostat.
Check if water is dripping right at the center of the filter, if it is dripping on one side because the orifice is clogged, that can result in weak coffee.
Coffee blend not well distributed on filter basket.

On Espresso machines:

Check water temp, same as filter coffee machines (thermostat element, scale on heating chamber).
Ensure that coffee is filled correctly in the filter cup (fill at level), and well pressed.
Ensure that the coffee mixture that you are using is not too coarse, buy the apposite one for espresso.
Ensure that you are not leaving the machine brewing for a time that is too long, and Italian coffee cup is very small, approximately one regular shot.

On the hob moka pots (espresso, Moka and Bialetti type):

This are the trickiest ones, you need art and practice to get a good espresso with a Moka, but when you learn, the result is better than what you may get with an home electrical espresso maker.
The frame on the hob must be not too strong, and the mixture coarse but well pressed, with water at level tag, or you will get a weak coffee.
On Mokas a good strategy is keeping hob at minimum, and turning up the flame at top when coffee starts coming out.

French and turkish cafetieres:

Ensure that you put enough coffee, water hot enough, and that you left the infusion enough time to get a strong coffee.

Note: insufficient pressure and clogged lines on electric machines never give you a weak coffee, exactly the opposite.
Not pressed mixture always gives weak coffee, but too much pressed mixture may give you coffee with bad taste.

Doesn't heat the water


Basing on personal experience (you can find more on Google probably), solutions are:

On percolated (filter) coffee machines:

Check water temp, if water temp is insufficient , most common is scale heating element , faulty element, faulty thermostat.
Check if water is dripping right at the center of the filter, if it is dripping on one side because the orifice is clogged, that can result in weak coffee.
Coffee blend not well distributed on filter basket.

COFFEE MAKER PRESTO SCANDINAVIAN DESIGN MODEL INOPERATIVE


Sorry to hear.  when mine did this you had to cycle the on button from off-auto-on wait 6 sec and do it again and again till brewed.  Took about 10 min to brew the pot.  seems there is something wrong with the brew heater or thermal switch.  my hotplate got hot but would not brew.
 Called Presto and they said its discontinued.  They also said they just put their name on the product and never carried or serviced this model.  If they had a return they would just give a new one but since it is discontinued they cant even do that.  If you have a costco near buy you can take it back as a gift and they sold it for 35.00.  If its under a year old Presto will give you 1/3 the price towards another Presto product.  yay.
