Hi Chris,

Welcome to fixya!

Any problem you have with your Delonghi at this time should be handled by the retailer that you bought it from since it is still under warranty.

Repair for this requires disassembly. This would void your warranty.

Sorry I couldn't be of more service to you.

Saeco vienna plus red solid light cannot prime water line


Make certain the line from the water resource is cleaned and not obstructed. If the pump fails to move the water from the reservoir to the heating tank, then the pump needs to be replaced.

Hi, We have just bought a DeLonghi Caffe Treviso. We are not able to get any coffee/liquid to drip out of the filter holder. The problem seems to occur when we are trying to preheat the machine, for...


Sounds like you need to prime the water pump. Remove the filter holder, open the steam knob and then press the coffee delivery switch. Wait for water to flow consistently from the steamer and then close the steam knob. Water should then be forced to flow through the goup head (coffee head). If you cannot get water to flow from steamer then the pump may have already been damaged or it may have been faulty from the start. If water will flow through steamer but not for the coffee, then the group head is blocked. Good luck hope this helps and remember that all machines should be primed like this before use.

sounds like you need to prime it. if the water tank is full, then there's no water in the espresso machine. even after we followed the directions in the manual for priming the sirena, we still couldn't get the water to go from the reservoir in the back into the machine.

johnshami had this solution on another post, and it worked for us:
  1. make sure the water in the tank is stone cold -- which is a no brainer since it will not heat h2o unless it's primed.
  2. take off steamer wand cover, turn the steamer knob clockwise till pump starts.
  3. then s*ck (as you would on a straw, with your lips sealed around the end of the steamer wand) the tip of the end of the metal tip hard until pump stops
  4. may need to do it a couple of times. yes this seems crazy, but it works! you are flushing out the vapor lock in the pump.

Gaggia trevi exclusive - one of the old black machines. We've not used it for a while and have just switched it on, it grinds the beans but no water comes out of the spouts or steamer. Chrissie


Hi
This might work. Its for a Saeco Vienna.
First off, don't leave the machine on for a long time if you don't have any water flow.
If its been setting for a long time you might have a stuck check valve in the pump.
The best way to prime the pump is to put in test mode.
Turn the machine off. Push and hold the 2 right buttons at the same time. While holding them down, turn the machine on.
Release the buttons and turn the dial counter clockwise till it stops.
This will keep the machine from heating.
If you push the center button the pump will activate.
Open the steam knob.
If you don't have your old priming pump, you can use a bulb aspirator.
Remove the water tank and fill the bulb with water. Insert the bulb into the hole on top of the machine where the tank was.
Push and hold the center button and squeeze the bulb to force water into the hole. Sometime it takes 2 people to prime the machine easier.
If the bulb squeezes easily and water flows, you did it. If not keep trying. You may have to remove the pump and blow some air through the small end (intake side) with an air hose.

Just out of the box, the sirena espresso maker doesn't heat and buttons don't flash


You need to prime the machine with water. Fill the water tank. Plug the machine in and turn the power on. Instructions state the lights will flash, but they won't. Blue water drop will illuminate indicating the machine is empty (the water tank is full, but the pipes in the machine are empty until you do the following). Place a cup under the steam wand, and rotate the steam knob fully to the "on" position (fully clockwise as you view it from the side until you hit the hard stop). No need to use force, just rotate until you hear the pump turn on. At this point, you'll hear a pump running, and after 10-30 seconds, water will be ejected from the wand. Continue until the blue light goes out and you're ready to brew. At this point, I think the lights flash and it comes up to temp. One more thing, when using the steam wand, always turn the knob until the pump engages, or you run the risk of emptying the water line. Hope this helps and enjoy!

The machine lights don't turn on


sounds like you need to prime the machine. check the manual for those instructions. if (like us) nothing happens, then read on:

johnshami had this solution on another post, and it worked for us when the manual's instructions to "prime" the machine resulted in no water leaving the tank to enter the machine:
  1. make sure the water in the tank is stone cold -- which is a no brainer since it will not heat h2o unless it's primed.
  2. take off steamer wand cover, turn the steamer knob clockwise till pump starts.
  3. then s*ck (as you would on a straw, with your lips sealed around the end of the steamer wand) the tip of the end of the metal tip hard until pump stops
  4. may need to do it a couple of times. yes this seems crazy, but it works! you are flushing out the vapor lock in the pump.

The blue light is blinking, the water tank is full, but the water isn't heating up at all. should we return it? Or is there something that we missed? We followed the instructions and are getting no where.

Water won't flow through the tubes


You might need to prime the pump manually since the machine has been moved.
directions:
Fill water tank.
Turn power on.
Open the steam knob all the way.
Press the coffee button.
Put a cup under the steam pump wand.
Wait until you see a steady flow of water and no air.
When you see the flow of water, close the steam knob.
Turn off the coffee button.
Now the machine should be ready to brew an espresso.
If that does not work you can contact the service center for more suggestions:
