Question about Saeco Vienna De Luxe Espresso Machine

Saeco Vienna Deluxe starts brew cycle then red light comes on

I just recently cleaned the flow meter (has a ground of coffee stuck in it!), descaled and all worked fine. Now it short cycles and sometimes dueing steam the light comes on too. I haven't found a common time that it does it all the time (meaning it doesn't always come on).
The pump sounds normal during steam, water and brew cycles too.

    Thanks for the suggestion bansheracer, but I did that the first time, and it's correct now (the problem is post this fix).

    Any other ideas?

    Hi Bansheracer,
    I checked it again, found the input line might have been kinked and trimmed it. Put back together and still the same issue (descaled too). It does it also when steaming or dispensing water as well and it's only random. Also checked water temp at 160 for coffee and 165 for hot water.
    Thanks!

Hi
I think you put the tubes on backwards to the flow meter. The inlet side of the flow meter is by the pump and the exit to the pump is by the water tank. They cross.

    Hi
    Are you sure that the flow meter is clear?

SOURCE: how do I descale my Saeco Vienna Deluxe?

Purchase the Saeco descaler. Mix solution accordingly. Pour into water tank. Run a cappucino cup full of water through the wand. Wait about 20 minute and repeat. Do this until all the water is gone in the tank. (Don't run all the water at once!). Rinse water tank well. FIll with clean water and run through the wand. I do this twice just to be sure I have gotten all the chemical out.

Saeco Vienna deluxe is slow functioning post power on. 3 to 5 min. for the middle green light remain on. Press brew switch takes a 2-3 min. for the pump 2 activate. Once activated, coffee flows fine.


Machine is screaming for descaling. The Calcium deposits in the system are slowing down heating.
Do not think of using Vinegar.
Do not use R.O water or consider water is very soft in your area. There is nothing like that.

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.

On Vienna Deluxe after the beans are ground and ready to drop the espresso shots, nothing comes out and the red light goes on? I shut the unit off for a minute or so, turn it back on and it works ok, but...


Solid red light is a ventilate light.. Try Priming the machine to see if the light goes away.

Something may be in the flow meter. Its the while device between the water tank and the pump of the machine. You would have to open the machine and clean out the flow meter.

Also, if you haven't descaled the machine already, I would start there.

Hi. Sounds like a blocked or jammed brew unit. Remove brew unit and clean. To properly do this, you need to disassemble the brew unit. Canbe quite hard to do. The brew units are usually held together with plastic tabs, and may have to remove some screws to allow these tabs to release units assembly. Dazza REPAIRER

Saeco Vienna coffee when the machine starts the coffee dispensing


Is it leaking only when brewing coffee ?

If not I would check the seal under the water tank (Part #NM05.006)

If so, I would check the following:

1- The water input port on the back of the brew unit (looks like a smoke pipe) might be clogged

2- The o-ring of the water tubes coming in and out of the boiler.

Saeco Magic Deluxe resets itself before completing brew cycle


Hi Try reprogramming the machine. Push and hold the button for the coffee you want, but hold it all the way through the process. Don't release the button until you get the amount of coffee you want for that button, then release the button. That should get you the same amount next time. You can do this for each coffee button. If that doesn't fix it, then you might need a new flow meter.

Trouble with Saeco Vienna Deluxe


Could be the pump gone bad or the flow meter.

Neither is easy to replace. Needs to be brought in for fixing.

Problem getting a Full Cup of Coffee


besides descaling you need to lube the brew group, especially the bit that accepts the group nozzle. You might have a leaking boiler too, 6 years is pretty good for a vienna.

Remove the brew group and look for the two red o-rings on teh brass bit, smear some lube on it, they might need replacing by now, but luckily they aren't too expensive and readily available albeit a bit tricky to install, a good light and some patience is very important.
