Question about Starbucks Saeco Italia Digital Barista Coffee Machine

1 Answer

Super espresso machine leaking

I have a Starbucks Barista Digital Italia (equivalent to Saeco Italia Digital). It is leaking cold water at the end of the wand as well as inside the machine (around the tubing to the wand. How do you get to this part to replace it - I think that I need a steam valve kit. Also, how hard is it to replace the burr - mine is 6000shots old.

    I have the same problem. I have removed the top but can't see where the hose attaches to the valve or how to replace it.

    Mine leaks a lot of water. It started out slow but as time has gone on it has gotten worse and worse. I wonder if this is the reason it has been discontinued.

Hi
Your steam manifold needs to be replaced. I still have the original in mine but if you don't cool them down after steaming they will develop hair line cracks and leak after while. To cool it down after steaming push the steam button again, then open the knob and run it till you have a steady stream of water, then close the knob.
The replacement manifolds are black and have held up very well but they have a brass manifold re[placement but you will need new mounting hardware.

I have a Saeco Italia Digital Barista and we've used it for years every day and loved it. Unfortunately, it has started leaking water inside and dripping out under the machine I've tried descaling,...


Its probably a loose hose or a failed O ring. You can take it apart and probably find the problem and fix it if you are handy. As it is don't use it. It's dangerous. You cold get a shock. Unplug it and either repair it or take it in to someone who handles Saeco. Their website lists repair facilities.
