I have a Saeco Vienna Digital expresso machine. I am wondering what the settings should be for the 2 knobs in the bean hopper. One knob has +- settings and the other reads 0-18.

Hi
A good setting would be 8 for the big knob and half way from the neutral to the + side of the small knob. Never all the way to the + as you could get an overcharge and damage the brew drive gears.

Trying to figure out which direction to turn the knob inside the coffee bean grinder to make my coffee weaker. Others have told me that the finer the grinds, the stronger the coffee. And the courser the...


HI
You can run more water through the same grind you are using now or you can trun the big knob in the bean hopper to a larger #. That will make the grind coarser. You can turn the knob to a larger # anytime but to turn it to a smaller # it has to be grinding or you will damage the grinder. If you have 2 knobs in the bean hopper, you can turn the small knob down towards the -(minus) and reduce the amount of coffee in the brew unit.

My Saeco Vienna Black Automatica Espresso maker will grind coffee only about one-fourth of the time. Other times, it makes whirring sound and then shuts off and red "coffee bean" light comes on.


Your grind is to fine. Turn the big knob in the bean hopper up 4 clicks and try again. It could be oily beans which would require the same solution.

I just received a used Saeco Vienna SuperAutomatica and I can not get coffee to brew. Drive grounds are shot into discard bin


HI
You must have 2 knobs in the bean hopper, or the grinds are more like French Press (very large grinds) If yoou just have 2 knobs turn the small one towards the minus (-) a little, and see idf that helps. If you hqve very large grinds you grinder has seperated and needs to be replaced.

When the espresso is grinding, it appears to be grinding continuously and will then stop and the light will come on as if the hopper is empty, even when it is filled with coffee beans.


Turn the big knob in the bean hopper to the largest #. If it works, on the second try turn the knob back down to a #, higher that you had before, but only turn the knob when it is grinding.

Cleaned grinder now can't get it set correctly. where do i line up red dots.


Hi
When you put in the outer burr, the redo should be to the front. The outer red dot has to be at the back. Rotate the outer red dot clockwise till it lines up with the inner red dot. Try lifting the burr out to see if it locked in. If it didn't, reverse the process and make sure that you push down on the burr before rotating the outer ring. Move the big knob in the bean hopper to 0 (zero). Put the gasket on the grinder and replace the bean hopper. Once the bean hopper is secure, move the big knob to 8 and you set.

Grinder settings for Vienna Deluxe


Hi
To start off with, you should not change the big knob unless the grinder is operating at the time.
Set the small knob to the middle position. You can move this any time. Move towards the + mark to strengthen the coffee, but never all the way to the full +.
Set the big knob to the #8 to start off with. Move it 1 # smaller to make the coffee stronger but be careful not to get it to fine as you will clog the grinder and you will have to take it apart to clean. If you ever get an out of beans light, but there are beans in the hopper, open the knob to #16 for 1 cycle, then turn it back down to a # 1 larger than you had before and leave it unless you get the message again. Shiny beans call for a coarser grind than a dull bean because of the oils in the coffee bean. Oils will cause the grinds to stick together and cause clogs faster than beans that have less oil.

Saeco Vienna grinds too much coffee.


Hi
If you have the Delux or Digital there are 2 knobs in the bean hopper. Turn the small knob back 1 mark and see if that will help.

Ginding problems, all clogged up


Follow these instructions to put grinder back together...

Items needed to clean grinder
1- #2 Phillips head screw driver
1 Cleaning brush
Prep:
Remove all beans from the bean hopper, vacuum out any
beans that cannot be scooped out by hand.
Remove the front and back screws and pull off bean hopper
container from the machine. (Note: The rear screw is longer
than the front screw.)
Note: Doser adjustment knob is available only on Vienna
Digital and Vienna Deluxe Rapid Steam.
Place screws in a safe place so that they will not be lost.
Cleaning the Grinder Viennas
back screw
front screw
grinder
knob
doser
knob
Before beginning to clean the grinder please be sure to turn the machine off and unplug it from the wall
socket. Grinder Tip: Using an oily bean will cause the coffee to build up quickly and clog the grinder.
Saeco recommends using a medium to dark colored bean that is not oily.
After cleaning the grinder and then brewing a cup of coffee it may take 2-3 grinding cycles for the machine
to dispense coffee.
Step 1:
Remove the black rubber gasket, then vacuum additional beans or grinds from the grinder area (Fig. 1).
Rotate the outer ring of the grinder counter-clockwise until the red line is at the 12 o'clock position (as
viewed from the front of the machine) or until the red line on the outer ring is 180º from the opposite red
line on inner burr ring (Fig. 2).
Lift the inner burr ring out of the assembly (Fig. 3).
Figure 1 Figure 2 Figure 3
Step 2:
Vacuum out any residual grinds from inside the grinder and clean the grinder burrs using the cleaning
brush (Fig. 5). Clean out the grinder coffee chute using the end of the cleaning brush (Fig. 5).
Remove the drip tray, open the service door, remove the dregdrawer and brew group. Gently pull
down the coffee doser door and brush out any ground coffee that may be inside the chute (Fig. 6).
Reassembly:
Be sure that the red line on the outer ring is still in the 12 o'clock position. Place the inner burr ring back
into the grinder making sure the red line on the inner burr is at the 6 o'clock position or 180º opposite from
the red line on the outer ring (Fig. 2). Once the inner burr ring is in place, rotate the outer ring clockwise
until it will not turn any further. At this time the two red lines should be aligned. The grinder is now at the
"0" position. Replace black round rubber gasket (Fig. 7).
Take the bean hopper container and rotate the grinder adjustment wheel to zero (0) (Fig. 8) and the doser
adjustment knob to the minus symbol (-) (Fig. 9). Slide the doser adjustment gear toward the left of the
machine until it stops. (Note: The Vienna Black does not have a doser adjustment knob. Only the Vienna
Digital & Vienna Deluxe Rapid Steam have a doser adjustment wheel.)
Reinstall the bean hopper container being sure to use the LONG screw in the back, then replace the finger
guard using the short screw in the front of the container. Once the bean hopper container has been
reinstalled, rotate each knob through the full range of motion. The grinder knob should rotate from (0) to
(18) and back, and the doser knob from the minus symbol (-) to plus symbol (+) and back.
Place the grinder adjustment knob at the eight (8) position and place the doser knob at the halfway
point between the plus symbol (+) and the minus symbol (-) symbol, or to your preferred settings.
