Left power and steamer on overnight and now machine doesn't work

Hi FixYa Gurus--

Big mistake. I left the power button and the steamer button on my Saeco Via Venezia coffee machine on overnight and now the machine does not appear to work at all. The steam release valve was closed and there is still water in the tank, but the machine does not make any noise (i.e., it's not heating water in the boiler) and there is no green light. I've turned the power off at the wall (fyi, I'm in Australia and we have switches on each electrical outlet to turn the power off and on) hoping that the machine would reset itself, but no luck. Any suggestions? Thanks everso,

Paege :)

They have a heat fuse attached to the side of the pump so when you do what you did 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 to machine it 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 saw the heat fuse on the side of the pump,

We unplugged our Bunn and left it unplugged overnight to do some painting. When we plugged it back in the light doesn't come on the warmer and the water does not heat.


The unit is not getting power. If the receptacle is protected by a GFI, then press the Reset button. Otherwise, check that the circuit breaker (or fuse) to that receptacle isn't tripped.

My Saeco Italia is stuck in the descaling mode. I tried to descale it yesterday and now it is stuck in the descaling mode. I have tried resetting as instructed in the manual and unplugged it overnight. It...


I had this problem too. I was beside myself wondering what to do. I took the machine apart but there was nothing wrong. It was stuck in an infinite descale cycle. The 5 green buttons never blinked to say it was done. What finally fixed it was to close the steamer valve to where water was being being restricted from the steamer wand but still a little water was spurting out. It finally quit emitting water and the 5 lights blinked and the infinite descale cycle completed. This model espresso maker was a lemon and been nothing but problems.

Had exact same problem (same two buttons worked). One of two button connection ribbons (wires) had disconnected inside the electronic box in machine. Simple was is to remove the top, open electronic box, reconnect grey ribbon (back left for me), and electronic tape onto connectors. Just did this, all worked for me.

My coffee machine says "ventilate"


When it says to ventilate, it is asking you to prime the pump. Put acup under the panarello wand ( the steamer/frother) to catch thedischarged water and press the hot water button (upper left button onmy machine). Wait until air stops coming out with the water, usually3-5 ounces, and then press the hot water button again.

You machine is now ventilated (primed) and should be ready to go.

STEAMER NOT WORKING - Hi my francis coffee machine is having problems with steaming.  Everything else works apart from getting steam/froth.  I have descaled it lots but still not working.  What can I do?


Hi again, I looked at some other posts on this site and tried soaking the steam wand in a cup of boiling water with a cap of vinegar in it.   I left it about 20 minutes and it worked very well.   My problem was just that the wand was blocked with dried milk on the inside.  I'll make sure to run water through after steaming milk in future .....
