Question about Saeco Vienna Deluxe

1 Answer

Slow coffee drip

I've had this Saeco Vienna for about 6 months and am having problems with it. It worked fine for a few months, but lately when I make coffee, the coffee comes out very slowly and at time just barely drips out. I've tried descaling the system with mild improvement. Any suggestions?

    Sounds like a clog some where in the brewing sustem. Getting grounds in your cup of coffee? If the coffee in over flowing into the tray and not coming out the two holes o the door I might have the fix. Open the front door of the machine. Use a can of instrument cleaner (the dry air type) and blow air up the two holes located on the outside of the door. You should get a blast of coffee grounds and water. Also soak your brew group in hot soap water. If the internal screen is clogged this will help clear it. When I descale I also run one long brew. Don't drink it! After I run one or two more long brews with freash water. It corrected my machine.

Stuck on ventilate

Try this, open steam wand, if it calls for ventilate pusi in steam knob, if that works then the tap rod on the steam valve needs to be replaced. To me it sounds like the machine is building up pressure and the discharge is not releasing through the water circuit.

Long time for drip coffee.

Grinder is set to too fine. Lower grinder settings. Keeping the machine at current settings with drip extraction will result in brew group clogging, gear stripping, and/or dulling of grinder burrs.

Re: no coffee comes out after the grinding and loading stages!

Sounds like your coffee grinder is grinding too fine. I would up the size of your grinder. The larger the numbers the coarser the grinds. Also, should descale the machine if you haven't in a while. One of these two things may help.

Also, if the above two things do not work you can try to clean out your grinder using the instruction #2 posted on the website

If you take out the brewing unit and look in the chassis you can see a hole, make sure that hole is clean.

Adjust your grinder to grind coars, when the machine "drip" out the coffee then it is to fine, adjust the grinder two step and then you have to maker 3-4 cup of coffee to make your new tasty coffee;-)

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.
