Question about Saeco Royal Professional Espresso Machine

1 Answer

I cant prime my Saeco Vienna. The pump quits after a bit and the red light comes on. I have water in the tank. I got inside the machine and found the small tube that goes from the pump to the boiler seems clogged with something. I assume the is not normal. should I force the clog out or should it be there? What could it be?I cant even blow through the tube

Hi High pressure will sometimes remove the scale that builds up inside the tubes but if you have scale in the tube, just think what you have in your boiler. If you have one of the new style boilers that might be what has happened. The boiler has plugged up. have seen it happen more than once.

On Vienna Deluxe after the beans are ground and ready to drop the espresso shots, nothing comes out and the red light goes on? I shut the unit off for a minute or so, turn it back on and it works ok, but...


Solid red light is a ventilate light.. Try Priming the machine to see if the light goes away.

Something may be in the flow meter. Its the while device between the water tank and the pump of the machine. You would have to open the machine and clean out the flow meter.

Also, if you haven't descaled the machine already, I would start there.

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.

On my saeco vienna machine i hear the pump working but no water is coming through


Any water leaks following the pumping sound ?

If there is no leaks, I would try to get some hot water from the wand.

If there is still no water coming out, I would:

1-Decalcify thoroughly

2-Open the machine and take the inside out and verify the status of the water pipes going from the water tank to the boiler than to the wand and the brew unit ... to make sure there is no restriction.

3-Replace water pump

Red warning light comes on in my saeco vienna deluxe I just aquired this unit and to date have not been able to make a cup of coffee. All the green lights light up and coffee starts grinding but after that...


Hi
More than likely your grind is to fine and you are using oily beans (shiney). There is a small knob in the bean hopper. turn it down to the minus side. Turn the big knob to the # 18. If that doesn't work you are going to have to take the grinder apart and clean it.

Saeco Vienna Deluxe starts brew cycle then red light comes on


Hi
I think you put the tubes on backwards to the flow meter. The inlet side of the flow meter is by the pump and the exit to the pump is by the water tank. They cross.

Limited water output (saeco vienna superautomatica model year 04)


Could be 3 things. Pump, flow meter, or clogged boiler. Pump is a standard ulka pump, flow meters are bought only from saeco as well as boilers. If i had to guess.... If its a vienna black than i'd point to the flowmeter. If you get pressurized water out of the steam wand than its either the flow meter or the boiler. Pointing more towards the flow meter (u shaped white plastic part with in and out tubes.

Saeco Vienna: water does not go through to the main unit


I had the same problem and got on the Saeco US website and talked to an online support person. She downloaded me a couple of pages of "fixes", I tried them and they worked! You have to take the two screws out of the brew group, remove the spring and a little clear plastic ball. Then clean out the hole thoroughly. I stuck a toothpick up into it from underneath to clean out the coffee that was stuck in the hole. I then put it back together and now it works perfectly.
