Question about Saeco VIA Venezia

Water not pumping through,though steamer works and it makes noise

We use our machine multiple times a day, in fact just this morning. It was sounding rough and I was thinking maybe time for a de-scale. I got tank out to check how that was looking gave it a clean then put back for second cup of the day to find it wouldn't prime. You can hear pump trying to **** and boiler is fine just water will not go through to the pump. Primed for a few minutes and took back off you could see beads of water in tubes not even moving. Please help me. Thanks

    Thanks for advice will keep in mind for next time. I actually took it too a Saeco service centre and had it fixed for $110AU. I probably got ripped off they said it was the thermostat which didn't make sense to me but was too intimidated to say anything. Anyway its working and I no longer have to drink stove top espresso:)

Saeco vienna plus red solid light cannot prime water line


Make certain the line from the water resource is cleaned and not obstructed. If the pump fails to move the water from the reservoir to the heating tank, then the pump needs to be replaced.

Miele CVA615 won't produce steam or hot water. Machine makes a mechanical noise like it's trying but no water comes out. The expel air indicator was on and this preceded discovery of the issue. Steamer...


Trey -
It sounds as if the water pump has gone bad. If the machine will not put water out of the hot water spout or the steam spout, and there is no water in the base of the machine (leaking from pump) then the pump is not putting out any pressure. The sound you hear is the pump running - but no pressure behind it.

Problem with Miele CVA615 Espresso Machine Water


Frankly, there are things wrong that are beyond your scope, mainly because of the domino effect in small espresso machines no matter who makes them. There are multiple thermostats instead of a pressurestat, and on and on trying to replicate what a commercial machine does. In a machine like yours, the slightest failure of a gasket throws off everything. There is better containment of problems in commercial machines, but that too depends on what fails first.

My advice, if you are a home user, would be to get a manual pump machine , such as a Pavoni, (which I have lost respect for since they employed plastic pistons,) or if for a small cafe or bar, something like a semi-automatic job plumbed through a filter. Either way, in all honesty and that has cost me dearly, I warn you about this coffee business, because it is a science and an art.

It is not easy to make a good cup of coffee or espresso, especially.

Mr Coffee Pump Espresso machine not working. Lights alternately flash between coffee and steam icons, machine makes noise, but coffee does not brew, water does not flow, steam does not come out.


The espresso portion may be clogged with hard water deposits, and the steamer tube with casein. Run a tank of plain white vinegar a couple of times then run a couple of tanks of plain water to flush the vinegar, Open the steam valve while the espresso portion is running and set the steamer pot under the steamer. Don't be surprised if a long white tube of hard white material slides out of the steamer valve. That's the casein, actually a form of organic plastic.

No water coming through coffee filter. I have descaled twice. You can hear the pump but no water and then it goes quite with no water. I have tried to prime the pump but still does not work. The steamer is...


If you open the steam tap while the pump is running does water come out? if so then you might have a blockage in the coffee solenoid or the bottom of the boiler. Do you hear a 'click' sound when you hit the coffee switch? If not the coffee solenoid may not be operating. The most common cause of the problem you are having though, is scale flaking off the boiler walls causing a blockage where the coffee water comes out. Try hiting the coffee switch, opening the steamer and then if water starts pumping out, close the steamer and see if water starts flowing out the coffee group. Do this without the portafilter (coffee holder) in place.
If you do get water flowing trough the group, try backwashing the machine.
If these things dont help then you should take it to an authorised repairer or open up the boiler yourself if you are a handy person and have access spare parts. Good luck, these machines can make a great espresso when in the right hands and working order.

Blinking blue light won't shut off even when the water is full


you need to prime the machine. if the instructions for priming don't work (as they didn't for us), then try this:

johnshami had this solution on another post, and it worked for us when the manual's instructions to "prime" the machine resulted in no water leaving the tank to enter the machine:
  1. make sure the water in the tank is stone cold -- which is a no brainer since it will not heat h2o unless it's primed.
  2. take off steamer wand cover, turn the steamer knob clockwise till pump starts.
  3. then s*ck (as you would on a straw, with your lips sealed around the end of the steamer wand) the tip of the end of the metal tip hard until pump stops
  4. may need to do it a couple of times. yes this seems crazy, but it works! you are flushing out the vapor lock in the pump.

Makes noise but water doesn't come out


you should consider cleaning calc from your boiler( descaling ), and checking the pump presure. i think it will work ok after that.

Nespresso D290


I hear you!! I found that you have to press the green steam light (left side) TWICE before steam is ready. After your second press, the machine will make pumping noise, then all lights will come on. From that point, the cappucino/latte steamer will work as manual describes.
