Question about Saeco Vienna SuperAutomatica Coffee Maker/Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Water dripping down steamer nozzle

The pressure and temperature of the steamer has decreased, and there is some water running down the outside of the steamer nozzle. It takes approximately 3 times as long to heat steamed milk than it should.

The machine still pulls shots okay.

Perhaps of importance for the leaking water, I did pull the entire metal steam nozzle out, thinking there may have been a plug. However, some leaking and decreased temperature problems started before this.

Leaking water under the drip tray

First, be sure to regularly push a straightened paper clip in that nozzle! It can get clogged with coffee grinds quite easily.

Then call Sunbeam and tell them you want the waste chute extender. It's a little plastic tube that fits over the nozzle to extend it further into the drip tray. Truth be told, you could probable push a 2cm piece of 3mm aquarium pump air tubing over it.

First check the nozzle at the end of the steam wand, if you have hot water for coffee then you should have something coming out of the steam wand. If the wand is not blocked and the pressure is low then the thermostat might need to be replaced.

I have the same issue. I have tried replacing the O-rings in the water heating element and the steamer, and it still does this. For a temporary fix, try running the steamer for about 30 seconds, or until it is running "full steam", and immediately make your coffee. This has worked for my machine for the last 4 months. It is used about 5-10 times a day at my work, and this still is working. I believe the issues is it is losing pressure somewhere, and the water cannot travel through the infuser. I have taken apart my machine more than 10 times, and I still cannot find out where the pressure loss is. I know this is a temporary fix, but it will work until something more permanent can be done. Hope this helps!

Francis francis x1, blocked steamer

Pour in a solution of 50% distilled white vinegar and 50 % water. Set the steam wand knob to a water setting, and run the solution through there. I would suggest letting a small amount of the vinegar/water solution drip out, then cut the machine off for about 20 minutes - allowing the vinegar to thoroughly soak and decalcify the insides. After 20 minutes, let the remaining vinegar/water pour through.
