Question about Saeco Royal Professional Espresso Machine

1 Answer

No power -- where is fuse?

Saeco Royal Professional suddenly turned off (in the middle of brewing). No circuit breaker or GFI blew. I checked the manual (such as it is), and it says "check fuse," but it doesn't say where the fuse IS.

Does anyone know?

Thanks --

    Thank you so much, although I must admit I'm a little perturbed that I have to go through all this for a fuse....

Fuse is inside the machine. Looks like a black wire thats fat in the middle.

Its either that or the main board blew. I pray it is the fuse because saeco doesn't sell the royal boards anymore from what i understand.

    ok. basically on the back there should be 2 screws under the water tank, and 2 screws on the grinder shoot.

    then there should be a couple of screws in the front under neath the front bevel in the middle. Follow along side the brew spout and you should see them.

    These might be security torq screws so you might need a torq security driver sold at sears etc.

    that should pop the top of the machine off.

    By the main board there should be a black wire (it may be a different color as it changes depending on year and model.)

    You should find wire that is fat in the middle and small on the ends. Basically looks like a wire with a fuse in the middle of it.

    Fairly easy to locate. From there is a matter of unplugging the old fuse and popping in a new one, which you have to buy from saeco.

    Depending on if its a newer model, there may be a fuse on the main board itself, which looks like a standard fuse.

    Be careful with the main board, as the wires can easily fall off. They aren't marked so placing them back can be a headache.

    Wish you luck.

Our Magic Comfort plus is 4 years old and it keeps blowing the gfi instantly when I plug it in. I have had this problem occassionally in the past and it resolves after one or two gfi trips. Now if tripo...

The problem believe it or not your gfi is warn out. I am actually surprised it lasted as long as it has and surprised it worked at all. Espresso machines use a huge amount of power when turning on compared to maintaining power. When espresso machines first turn on the take a huge surge of power to start heating up the elements. Normally you want to put an espresso on a circuit /outlet that is directly to your breaker that is at least a 20 amp breaker. By code kitchens and bathrooms, where an outlet is near water, has to have a gfi outlet, this is for safety for something plugged in near water so it will trip if accident happens with appliance near water. The bad news there not to good with high demand power appliances such as espresso machines. Yes , you can replace the gfi circuit, by turning off main breaker, unscrew gfi from wall, pull out, and undo wires, and copy exactly when re-wiring the new one. Then turn on main breaker again. NOTE: you can buy a gfi all most any home improvement center, lowers, home depot, ace hardware etc.... Think of a gfi kind of like a advanced in line fuse, they do wear out. BUT AGAIN, my advice is plug it in a outlet that does not have gfi and is on a main breaker of at least 20 amps if you have that opportunity to do in your kitchen area. Hope this helps you, thank you....... MIKE

My saeco royal professional has no power, no lights. What's up?

First I would check the switch on the bottom left side of the machine and make sure that it has not been turned off.
If it is on you may have a fuse out on the board. It is a very special fuse. It is a 35Ma timed lag fuse When we change them we put in a 50Ma Timed lag fuse with no problems, because the 35MaT is hard to find.

Saeco Royal Professional capuccino maker brew unit assembly issue

Try this, check brew unit on it you will see a small arrow, this has to be pointing at the letter N, whisch is near the handle. Remove the drain tray and dreg tray, check the rails for the brew unit make sure there is no coffee on it, then slide unit in place.

No coffee, water going to the drip tray

OK, so this is a problem with your brew unit. The unit is not cycling correctly to tell the water to come through.

We had another problem like this just this week.

The wat we fixed it was 1) Give the Brew Unit a really good clean. 2)Make sure the Brew Unit can complete a cycle - manually rotate the brew unit components through a cycle 3) Lubricate the Brew Units moving parts if necessary using some Saeco or Other Food Grade Lubricant

Then try watch a complete coffee cycle by leaving the side door of your machine open, and tricking the micro switches into thinking the door is closed by engaging them with some card or something similar.

Let us know if this does not resolve your issue.

Saeco Royal Professional Coffee ends up in the bin not into the cups. What has happened and where can I go to resolve it. Thanks Mala

If you mean the Coffee Seems to end up all around your brew unit, a common fix is to move the dosage control (this is the slide on the right hand side of your machine just above the door to the brew unit) back and forth repetitivly.

The machine won't start up

in the self test does it flush the unit ? If not you have to prime the unit by allowing it to pump hot water through the frothing valve. Open the valve and the pump should pulse water out. After this the machine should indicate it is in the operating mode for coffee
