Try http://www.espressoparts.com/category/03.01.astoria.moden_solenoid_groups/
This isn't exactly a manual but if you're just looking to find out how it goes together/comes apart then this should help. There are other diagrams in related section covering the rest of the machine. Beyond that any general info on "how it works" is probably going to be the same for most commercial machines. Look on coffeegeek or toomuchcoffee etc for more help with how to get decent espresso from a machine like this. Nice piece of kit, I have an SAE1 at home and it's lovely.

Blinking lights in Astoria sae


Water is not flowing through the flowmeters. It could be a blockage in the line or the wheel is damaged or the flowmeter head is damaged. But the blinking lights indicate a water flow problem.

All the program buttons on my Astoria SAE2 were flickering at once. I turned the machine off and on again and it was gone but am wondering why it was flashing.


if the machine runs on 220, then it will do that with a power surge, because sometimes, when there is a surge, it drops to 110 power it is enough to do this, if it is wire and on 110 power, could be a programing issue that is triggered from a power surge. Most likely it was a power surge, that is common, especially if it is 220 power, machine will run if only 110, power, but wont operated fully for the proper steam, boiler temps etc, if does not have enough amp, just enough to flicker. Hope this info helps. Thanks Mr Bean Man from fixya

Maximum water supply pressure


About 3 bars, not more that 5 or you will need to install a pressure regulator on the line.

I have an Astra Mega I single group espresso machine 110v. I seem to not be getting enough water through the portafilter and it is all clean.


Remove portafilter, shower and screw and run the head. Did you get a nice steady flow or a weak drip. If a weak drip then the solenoid or the metering jet on the head is blocked and needs to be cleaned. If you get a nice flow the adjust the grind on the coffee to coarser.

Water not pouring down


Need more info such as is it a 2 head or 1 head. Have you removed the screen and diffuser to see if its clogged, do you hear the pump when you run the head. If yes to all then on top of the group, if you remove the front cover, and the sheet metal plate you will see a nut a 17 or 19mm open end wrench will help you remove it(MAKE SURE WATER IS TURNED OFF AND THAT THE MACHINE IS COOLED BEFORE OPENING). The micro filter and the jet will be covered with minerals clean filter and use a paper clip or long pin to clean the small hole in the middle of the jet.

Astoria SAE 2 Programing


The key is that you have to HOLD the programming button in for about 5 seconds before the system will go into programming mode. All the lights will come on and you will know you are ready to program the various shot buttons.
