    Where exactly? Can you explain further?

    I have mentioned everything I can think of in the previous posts, I'm sorry , but I cant help any further. Try calling a Saeco or a coffee machine repair company who would have the experience or knowledge of your particular model.

You have to lift a top drip on the machine and there is the thermal protection on the side of the boiler, one such elongated brown or blue cable should be. Most likely it's burned out and the machine does not work. But there is no such reset button.
If you have questions, please ask.

Testimonial: "Thanks, so reset button is a mith. Do you mean I change the brown and blue cables? Cables look ok, nothing looks burned, thermal protection which is inside a transparent sylicone tube is ok, tested with multimeter. I extracted the water pump also, water goes through. Not sure what to do."

    I did not understand - does a machine is swiching on or not give any sign of life?
    Or just does not want to go?

Have a close look around the outside of the cabinet for a small button or hole. Inside the hole, there may be a button that can be pressed to reset. Not sure about Saeco but I doubt if you have to take the cabinet off to get to a reset button.

  • Steve F Apr 27, 2017

    There may be a small hole on the back or side of the machine. It could have a plastic cap or rubber bung hiding it. You may need a torch to look in there to see if there is a cutout button. Sorry, its probably not much help but its all I can think of other than getting in touch with one of their Agents or the Manufacturer direct.

I have the via veneto model that has the rubber tube that draws the milk in. It doesn't seem to build enough pressure now to do it. I have been cleaning and descaling it on a regular basis. The expresso...

There is a pin on top of the cappuccinator the will twist to create suction. Turn it slowly when steaming until it starts to draw milk up to foam. Then leave it. If you don't have the pin, thats your problem.

The steamer on our Espresso machine is not working

Try using a paperclip or needle to clear out the holes on the end of the steam wand. That will usually work if when you turn on the wand it is hot to the touch and you can still get hot water from the coffee spout.

Via Veneto will not prime

Yes, unfortunately the Via Veneto is a difficult machine to prime, however, I have a simple way to prime the pump if you run into this problem. Simply remove the water tank, fill a clean turkey baster with water, open the steam valve fully then mate the baster tip with the water tank flow valve on the espresso machine. Wrap a towel or paper towel around the flow valve/baster tip then inject the water (agressively, but not forcefully). It's works for me every time.

Via veneto won't make coffee

I removed the top filter where the water comes out and cleaned it good with a pin for all the holes, then I did the same for the coffee filter. I found alot of the holes plugged which would avoid the from alowing the coffee to come out.

Now it works like new.

I think your machine is overheated, try to replace the thermostat on the boiler.

Soggy Pucks & Portafilter retains water Saeco Via Veneto

It sounds like you are short on water due to a blockage somewhere...either in the flowmeter or the group head. You might also have a faulty pump, and you're not getting enough pressure during the shot. If you're not getting crema, then it's most likely pressure related...shots will also have a burnt smell and very bitter taste.
