Question about Saeco Vienna SuperAutomatica Coffee Maker/Espresso Machine
No hot water or steam is dispensed, mashine makes a funny noise and than red light comes on. Buttons are not working, coffee doen's dispense. Cleaning the opening of the steam tube didn't help.
Well, I have little exposure to Saeco, but a lot to commercial coffee machines.
Saeco have a lot of custom made components, although these can be purchased, nothing is cheap! Neither is their repair service!
First, is the boiler heating?? If so:
No hot water/ no steam suggests a blockage. Assuming you can hear the pump working when attempting to do a coffee, you will probably find the water flowing back into the water tank via the relief valve. Of course, this valve itself could be the problem, or the pump failing to work through a blocked inlet filter or other problem.
Look now at the group head. Ever cleaned it? The filter and spray block should be removable, do so and clean them carefully. While you have them out, see whether water reaches the head by "making a coffee" into a cup placed under the head. BE CAREFUL OF SCALDING. If water now flows, cleaning the screen and spray block should restore operation.
Beyond that, it's inside the machine! There is a 3- way valve that operates when making a coffee. This can become clogged with coffee. There is another valve to open the steam.
If, like Saecos I have worked on, the boiler does both the hot water and the steam one at a time, look for problems BEFORE the boiler.
Hoe this helps a little....

- Make sure that the filled water container is in the appliance.
- Turn the program selector to "On" with lighting and place a container under the hot water spout and another
under the steam spout.
- Press the hot water button, turn the steam selector counterclockwise and dispense hot water until it flows in
quiet, continuous streams.
- Press the hot water button again.
Turn the steam selector clockwise to o, to turn off the water.
If this doesn't do it for you, you are doing it wrong!
