Question about Saeco Vienna De Luxe Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Saeco Vienna grinds too much coffee.

My Saeco Vienna grinds too much coffee, and the grinder also appears to bog down eventually. When the brew cycle happens, the brew group becomes jammed, and the machine will indicate an error (likely from too much coffee inside the mechanism).

Hi
If you have the Delux or Digital there are 2 knobs in the bean hopper. Turn the small knob back 1 mark and see if that will help.

Grinder is only turn to a smaller # when its grinding. You can turn to a larger # any time. There is a dial on the panel that controls how much water goes through the brew unit.
What do your grinds look like. If they are like sugar granules your Ok, but if they are very coarse you grinder has come apart and needs to be cleaned and snaped back together. If you look at the white cork screw in the center of the grinder it should be centered and not to one side.

I just received a used Saeco Vienna SuperAutomatica and I can not get coffee to brew. Drive grounds are shot into discard bin


HI
You must have 2 knobs in the bean hopper, or the grinds are more like French Press (very large grinds) If yoou just have 2 knobs turn the small one towards the minus (-) a little, and see idf that helps. If you hqve very large grinds you grinder has seperated and needs to be replaced.

Hello. I have a saeco vienna superautomatic


This happens due to condensation caused by steam developed at the end of the grinding cycle. Make sure that the grinding chamber is completely cleaned and dried before using the grinder.

  1. Turn the whole bean chamber to the right until it can be lifted off the base. This will allow you to clean the grinding wheel. NOTE: Never use water or liquid for cleaning the lower grinding section of this appliance.
  2. Clean interior recesses with a soft brush (not provided).
  3. Wash the whole bean chamber and lid and the ground coffee chamber and lid in mild detergent and water. These items are only dishwasher safe on the top rack of your dishwasher. Wipe exterior with a damp cloth. Do not immerse mill in water or any other liquid or place in dishwasher. Use only non-abrasive cleaners to remove stains.
  4. After completely drying, replace whole bean chamber. Important: when replacing whole bean chamber, screw on completely before setting grinding rate. Turn chamber clockwise (as viewed from top), until it will not turn. Fill with whole coffee beans for grinding and replace lid.
  5. Replace ground coffee chamber and lid, making sure it snaps securely into place.

What does the coffee produced taste like, is it bitter and watery, is there any creama on the espresso shot. Try adjusting the grind and the coffee level, maybe a little coarser.

Long time for drip coffee.


Grinder is set to too fine. Lower grinder settings. Keeping the machine at current settings with drip extraction will result in brew group clogging, gear stripping, and/or dulling of grinder burrs.

Grind is too coarse and "pucks" are wet and fall apart.


You say " I am getting a weak brew because of not being able to adust the grind to more coarse with the adjustment knob in the bean hopper" By making it more coarse you are making it weaker. Unless you just wrote it wrong. To make it stronger you should lower the grinder number to a smaller number. Usually about 4-6. Be sure you have the grinder grinding when you move it to a lower number. The pump noise could be that in shipping your pump came loose from it's mount. Nothing you can do without sending it to a Authorized Saeco Repair shop.
