Question about Saeco Vienna Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Takes forever to warm up

After going being in Energy Saving mode or Off overnight and switching on with Menu button or On switch, it SelfTests OK, but sits in "warming up" mode for hours before eventually coming on. If I request steam or hot water the wand produces steam or hot water, but the display says it is still "warming up". I leave it on all the time, but I would like to use the energy saving mode. Any ideas?

Have you decalcifyd the machine?

If there is calcium in the boiler then it takes long time to warm up and if you much calcium in it then it never be warm.

I think you have to replace the boiler on that machine:-(

My wife somehow changed the language to Italian and it is no longer working. It says Descalcificacion Llenar Deposito when it is not in energy saving mode. I can't follow the instuction manual to change...

You need to change your language in the menu.
Push and hold the menu button. When it changes in the window, use the up or down arrow button to move the asterisk (*) until you come to a window that has something like "lingua, or spreka", and then push the menu button again. Use the up arrow to scroll to "English". When you have the asterisk (*) in front of English, push the menu button again. You have selected English and then you can push the escape button to exit. Some machines have exit in the scroll bar, so it depends on your machine.

Push the menu button. If it says warming up, then push it again. Then use the up, down arrows to scroll to the item you want to change. With the astrick(*) in front of the item, push the menu button again. Use the up, down arrows to change the item to what you want. With the astrick in front if the sub item, push the menu button to make it the selection you want. If you don't push the menu button it will remain the same as it was. Push the escape to exit.

Saeco Royal Professional is stuck on "Ventilate"

There are possibly 2 things that it could be.
1. Check that the tip of the wand is not plugged.
2. Your solenoid valve that controls the water is bad or stuck. That means a trip to the service center.

How do I check how many coffees we have made on our Saeco Royal Professional coffee machine

Push and hold the menu button. When is says "energy saving" use the up arrow and go up about 3 or 4 pushes until you get the * beside the "total coffee", then push the menu button again. The menu button is what gets you into the selections and is what locks changes in the computer.

Rinsing...Warming UP... message on Saeco Magic Comfort plus

HI, I am sure you have solved your problem, however:
If you Descale the machine and let it Rinse to complettion of the
cycle; it resets the machine and it will start Rinising after warmup.

Otherwise press the Menu button and go to Energy Saving
then press the Esc buttton. This allows the machine to start
without Rinsing. Also you may turn Rinsing to Off in the Menu.

Saeco Primea Cappuccino Ring--stuck on "boiler filling" mode!

Hello, I had the same problem, therefore the machine has gone to a repair centre. The problem is caused by a mechanical switch in the machine, that doesn't work properly. To repair it you've to open the machine completely, but that’s not easy. Because there is nothing broken you’ll should have warranty because it is a production failure. The solution in my case was to heat up the switch and push it a little together so that the contact works properly. It is the switch that you hear when you turn on the machine.

Let the unit complete it's self test mode.

Machine won't power up after 3 days holiday!

this problem seems to be more electrical device failure as opposed to micro controller confusion. I would look for a failed power supply component, possibly an overheated resistor that has changed value and caused power loss. Look for a browned-out area on a circuit board.
