SOURCE: 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.

Hi,

is it the far right lamp that blinking? Then you have to descale your machine.

Is it the lamp in the middle in the bottom row, then you have to open the door and take out the driptray and dregsbox for 5 to 10 sec.

if the water drop flashing then you have to open the steam knob and make a cup of water(tea).

Hope this will help you.

SOURCE: Franke coffee system, always same error message ''fill water tank''

What you would have to do is take the side panel off to get at the solenoid. It is probably sticking closed and not letting the water fill into the boiler.

SOURCE: SAECO Royal Professional no water comes out?

Hi
What is the lever for despensing grounds on the top of the side door reading. If its all the way to the back it probably too far. Pull it back one click and try it. The other thing you should try if its not the grounds it to push the button you want to use and hold it in until the liquid coffee want is reached, then release the button. This is called programing and you can do it to each button for you desired amount.

SOURCE: The Sensor Magnet for water tank does not float to the top

OK, first of all, I do not recommend my solution if you are forgetful or do not check your water level manually daily.

However, I found a super easy solution.

The way the unit works is to use a float in the water chamber with a magnet on the bottom. When their is enough water in the tank, the float rises and the magnet on the bottom floats to the top of the magnet chamber. When it floats up, it aligns with a sensor in the machine that allows the machine to operate. When the the water level lowers, so does the magnet and drops below the internal sensor disabling the machine with a "Fill Water Tank" error message.

To eliminate this error and allow the machine to operate, I simply popped off the lid to the magnet chamber with a butter knife and turned the water chamber up side down to let the magnet float fall out. Remember to empty the water first.

Here comes the highly technical part. Turn the magnet float upside down and slide it back into the float chamber. Since the actual magnet is on the bottom of the float it now is at the top allowing the internal sensor to turn off. No more error message!

The reason I do recommend this is because this completely defeats the purpose of the sensor and will most likely damage your machine if you run it without water. Keep you tank filled however and you will eliminate the frustration of a "float gone bad" keeping you from your morning caffeine.

Error code 5 on saeco minuto coffee machine


Error code 5 means the water flow is obstructed. Here are possible locations:
1- The machine was not descaled. Calcium deposits are clogging the water system.

2- The flow meter is not passing impulses for water flow speed & quantity.

3- Descale Descale Descale.
Before you select the automatic descaling, make a few espresso without adding coffee grounds. The automatic cycle does not clean the coffee side of the machine. You have to do it intentionally.

Saeco Italia espresso machine. problems with water light on even though water tank is full. Not sure how to get water flow and/or prime the pump.


To prime the pump run the hot water cycle for a few seconds, also when inserting the tank on the machine make sure it slides down the back making contact that will help the reed sensor, find the magnet in the float.

How to drain coffee machine saeco s-class incanto classic


Subject: How to drain boiler of Saeco Incanto Deluxe
I got an answer from Saeco Customer Service as follows:

-----------------------------------------------------
Good Afternoon,

All you need to do is have the machine turned on and up to temperature. Make sure that you have a full tank of water as well. Make sure the machine is set for hot water, then turn the knob on the side of the machine to start water flow. Once the water is flowing out, remove the water tank and, leaving the knob turned open so that the water that's in the system drains out. Once water stops coming out, close the knob and shut the machine off.
The water is now drained from the system.

Thank You,
Customer Service

Saeco Vienna Deluxe starts brew cycle then red light comes on


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.

Water pump?


If you could brewer coffee or get hot water out of the steam wand then it could be the one way valve on the bottom of the water tank. If you are running the pump output into a glass then it is probably scaled up in the boiler.

Saeco Easy red light stays on


Hi,

Make sure the magnet in the water tank flow up when you fill the water tank. Look at the dregsbox and make sure you have a little pin that goes into the machine.

I have a Saeco Vienna Deluxe Model. We have been experiencing water leaking from the machine. It leaks under the tank and floods the counter or leaks into the spent coffee disposal bin. I removed and...


Hi,

If it leaks under the water tank then you have to replace the gasket in the machine where the water tank inlet are.

If you have a leek inside the door, make sure the hole behind the brewing unit (in the chassis) are clean.

That you get a half cup of coffee one time and a full next time can be the electric board in the machine but can also be the flow meter.

Hope this can help you.

Best regards

No hot water or steam


Well, I have little exposure to Saeco, but a lot to commercial coffee machines.
Saeco have a lot of custom made components, although these can be purchased, nothing is cheap! Neither is their repair service!
First, is the boiler heating?? If so:
No hot water/ no steam suggests a blockage. Assuming you can hear the pump working when attempting to do a coffee, you will probably find the water flowing back into the water tank via the relief valve. Of course, this valve itself could be the problem, or the pump failing to work through a blocked inlet filter or other problem.
Look now at the group head. Ever cleaned it? The filter and spray block should be removable, do so and clean them carefully. While you have them out, see whether water reaches the head by "making a coffee" into a cup placed under the head. BE CAREFUL OF SCALDING. If water now flows, cleaning the screen and spray block should restore operation.
Beyond that, it's inside the machine! There is a 3- way valve that operates when making a coffee. This can become clogged with coffee. There is another valve to open the steam.
If, like Saecos I have worked on, the boiler does both the hot water and the steam one at a time, look for problems BEFORE the boiler.
Hoe this helps a little....
