Question about Saeco Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines

Open Question

Philips Saeco Minuto makes hissing noise, no water out of brew unit. Water coming out into drip tray.

I entered the built-in test mode and having discovered the following: - Water pump is working, flow meter good - Brew unit is not stuck cleaned brew unit, lubricated, cleaned screen - When water temperature is raised to around 80degrees in manual mode, hissing noise comes out of the left side of machine; I then used the pump to flush out the built-up steam - Solenoid valve appears to be working, I hear hissing noise when I activate it - Bean grinder appears to work fine - Machine was descaled regularly and filter used

Hi,

If you try to make a cup of coffee, hold the button to see if there will comes some coffee, it can be the memory that have loose the settings. If so you have to program the machine again.

Best regards

I had the same problem. The water was coming from the front door switch inside top right. I followed the water and turns out the part that needed to be replaced was the steam valve body. #48. http://www.shop.partsguru.com/images/1208344975339-771025787.jpeg and link http://www.shop.partsguru.com/images/1208344975339-771025787.jpeg after I changed it the pool of water under the machine stopped. I hope this helps.

Hi
Your machine is still in the descale mode. You haven't finished. If you have run the descaler through, the water is ermpty the pump will still keep going until it stop on its own. If it doesn't stop on its own, the computer thinks its still in the descale mode. remove the water tank and turn the machine back on. The pump will run and then make a lot of noise, then stop. This can take up to 5 minutes. Let it run until it stops. You will get blinking lights on the panel. Put the water tank back on and close the steam knob then open it again. The pump will start the rinse mode. Let it stop on its own. Computer can't see that you ran a whole tank of water, but it can see when the flow meter stops that there is no water left. If you have already rinsed the machine start the pump flowing and just lift the tank off. When the pumps stops the rinse cycle the descale light will be gone but you will have the heater light blinking and the water light steady. Put the tank back on and close the steam valve then open it again. This will clear the water light and the machine will start to heat again.

Try adjusting the grind four numbers coarser and brew a coffee, if you are getting the same result then the brew unit is clogged and the screen needs to be cleaned.

I have a saeco super automatica Leaking water


Take the brew unit out when the machine is off and cold. With your finger, check the well next to the large gear on the inside of the machine. This is the gear that fits in the back of the brew unit when it is in place. That well may be clogged with fine coffee grounds and some mildew build up. You might notice that after brewing, very little water will has been flowing into the drip tray. Take a Q-tip and push it through the hole at the bottom of the well to remove the coffee ground buildup. The excess water after brewing will flow through normally now and not behind the brew unit.

Hi
Check behind the drip tray for coffee grounds. Make sure that your drip tray is locked in. If its not fully locked it, this could be your problem. If everything is removed but the brew unit, grab the handle without pushing the press button, and pull. If the brew unit comes out, it wasn't locked in. Put the drip tray in. Set the brew unit on the drip tray. Now slide the brew unit towards the machine with a little force and see if that locked it in?

HI
Excess water into the drip tray is an indication that you don't have enough coffee going into the brew unit. There is a lever on the top of the door that has a + on one side and a - to the front. Push the lever back to the full plus, then pull it forward 1 click. Try that.
Water into the drip tray is normal in small amounts. This is the release of pressure after brewing, like the 3 way valve on commercial machines

My SAECO coffee machine is a real disappiontment. We frothed the milk a few times and then the machine started to only warm the milk and provide a small amount of froth. Now the company is trying to tell me it's something I am doing! Not so. It is the expensive machine not working.

Hi,

Take out the brewing unit and look in the chassis behind where the brewing unit was, you will see a little hole, put in your finger and make sure the hole is clean.

No coffee, water going to the drip tray


OK, so this is a problem with your brew unit. The unit is not cycling correctly to tell the water to come through.

We had another problem like this just this week.

The wat we fixed it was 1) Give the Brew Unit a really good clean. 2)Make sure the Brew Unit can complete a cycle - manually rotate the brew unit components through a cycle 3) Lubricate the Brew Units moving parts if necessary using some Saeco or Other Food Grade Lubricant

Then try watch a complete coffee cycle by leaving the side door of your machine open, and tricking the micro switches into thinking the door is closed by engaging them with some card or something similar.

Let us know if this does not resolve your issue.
