Saeco via venezia overheat cut out

Have had my saeco via venezia in for repairs 3 x now because it overheats and trips its overheat cutout switch. Would love to know how to reset it myself as it takes 4-6 weeks to get it through the repair centre. It happens if I steam milk and forget to run water back through the boiler. Any soultions?

    Thanks - I know that. How do you reset it though, that is the issue!

    Our steamer on the barista athena stopped foaming recently. It seems to be more explosive towards the end. Could there be some saftey switches that went on for not having water in the tank and running it accidentally? Is it something that we can take care of without sending it in? We love it otherwise...

    Take out the 5 or 6 grub screws securing the main steel cover and remove. You will see plastic re-set switch on top of the boiler amongst all the electical connections - just click it.

    To stop it cutting out be sure to fill the boiler immediately you swith the machine on by opening the steam valve until water comes through the nozzle. Also remember to switch off the power as soon as you have brewed - that's my usual crime!

    Regards,

Disconnect from the power and remove the 5 or 6 grub screws retaining the main steel cover and take the cover off. You will see a plastic re-set button on top of the boiler amongst the electrical terminals - just click it on again.

To stop overheating always open the steam valve immediately you switch the machine on until water squirts out - this tells you the boiler is full & not dry! Also remember (unlike me!) to switch the machine off as soon as you have finished brewing...

We had trouble finding the plastic reset switch but found it between where the 2 blue wires attach to the boiler. The switch looked the same colour as the boiler so it was a little disguised as being a switch. Thanks for the great tips. You saved us a fortune again let alone the time we would have had without our coffee machine. Cheers

I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but you need to run water back though the boiler--all that's there when you're steaming is steam and without water all the safety switches go on.

SOURCE: overheat cutout switch

The coffe maker has a heat fuse attached to the side of the pump so when over heats that melts and does not damage the coffee maker
They charge $100 to replace which is a bit tough, you could bypass easily but could damage the machine if not careful
as we have two and one has just stopped pumping, not picking up water so maybe worn valves and I just have it all to bits and noted the heat fuse on the side of the pump

Water won't come through my Saeco via venezia coffee machine. It was working fine until I cleaned it so I don't think the pump has gone.


If the pump vibrates when trying to draw water then that is a good sign. Remo;ve the hose on the output side of the pump and turn it on to see if it draws water(BE Careful water and electricity love each other too much), it water flows out the output side, reconnect to boiler and test. If that did not solve the no draw problem then the machine is blocked either at the boiler.

Have a Saeco Via Venezia I think it overheated and tripped its overheat switch, as it the light no longer comes on. I have taken the cover off however cannot find the switch, can you help me


I believe you have a digital system, there is a thermal control setting in the system that may have been improperly set at the factory. We sent a new system back with the same problem and they made the fix.

I was a Saeco tech in Italy were i come from and i do know pretty this machine since are one of my favorite.I like solid construction machine and easy to operate.This machine is very stable,durable,and work with basic element.
Back to your problem technically could be something very easy to fix or something require a little time to troubleshhoting the real issue.

This coffe maker need to be open to check the status and troubleshooting the issue.Don`t forget to unplug the power cord first all the time.

This one are the check need to be done.

Check thermostat....some coffe maker have overheat protection thermostat and if the coffe maker was without water for a while that thermostat could be in protection.Sometimes they have a red push in for re arm .Try to push the re arm button.Check the thermo fuse(most of the time inside a silicon tube and on the top of the boiler) and check the heater element

To check the heater element you need a voltmeter (no power is necessary)
Set the meter on ohm and check if you have continuity.If you have continuity the heater is good.Check also 1 element and stick the other probe on ground to make sure no short are present.

Pls don`t forget to rate your experience

Perhaps you dont need to change a fuse. but only reset them :)
open up the machine and look for the boiler. on it are two automatic fuses that you can reset.

Hopefully its that otherwise it might be the powerboard.
