    Thanks..... I tried that. Normally, that will work, but the pump seems to be pumping slow or now if at all. Then the machine just stops.

Toilet and bathroom cleaner, or hydrochloric acid descaling solution.

put it in and leave to soak , it will froth up as it is neutralising the deposits.

make sure to rinse out well before use, maybe neutralise the acid with a mix of bicarbonate of soda solution.

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.

My Saeco Vienna Digital has been really great (constant use since 2005), but now it is leaking water, and sometimes only half a cup comes out. I think there is an O ring that needs to be replaces (orange,...

The O-rings are made of silicone and usually don't wear out. The usual cause is the boiler gasket. Heer is a picture of what to look for. The white in the center of the boiler is scale (calcium) that builds up on the center portion of the boiler. It will build up enough to let the gasket not seal and the boiler leaks. The other thing is if you descale hot. The descaler will turn the gasket brittle and it won't seal. The last thing is not descaling enough. Everybody thinks their water is good and don't need to descale. WRONG. I have great water but I descale every 3-4 months depending on how many coffees I have done. The machine will tell me and I descale. My machine is a Italia Digital and I make 10 - 12 coffees a day. It is now going on 8 years. Still has the same boiler. Descale more often than not enough and your machine will last a long time.bansheracer_6.jpg

Hot water comes to slow

It sounds like your water line may be clogged. Buy some descaler powder and follow the instructions on the package to clean away calcium deposits from inside your coffee maker's water lines.

Only hot water comes out of the steam wand

Sounds like you might need a new steam boiler, or you may have a fuse that is blown for the steam boiler.
