Question about Saeco Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines

1 Answer

I have purchased a used Saeco Royal Professional. Model is SUP 016 RE. Serial No. 9005ROY0539271. Manufactured 02/2005. On power up, after the self test, the display reads "COFFEE DISPENS. BLOCKED". I believe the problem is to do with a vending code, which is unknown to the seller (estate sale) or the purchaser - me. It looks like a great machine. I guess I need a 'Master Reset Code'. My nearest authorized repair center is four hours drive away. Please help as I am unable to use my machine. I have been advised by APLUG "This error usually appears after reaching the counter's set limits for dispensing". Unfortunately this solution did not work. After pressing the cappucino button, the machine's pump started for a couple seconds then same message on display. "COFFEE DISPENS. BLOCKED". Is there a "MASTER RESET" for this machine? Please help. Regards, John Kuiters

You will need to reset the counter. Reset the counters by selecting the cappuchino selection key. Click on the link below to download the Saeco Royal Professional owners manual.


After a certain number of cycles, this function

allows to stop the coffee dispensing (excluding

hot water, steam and cappuccino dispensing

operations). It can also be used, for example, to

program the machine servicing.

If the 0 value is set, the function is disabled.

From the VENDING menu, move the asterisk to

the COUNTER menu by means of

keys and confirm the selection through


Press the same keys to modify the selected value
(for example to set a new servicing limit). Through

ENT a new value can be saved. On the

contrary, by pressing ESC the new value entering

is stopped and, as a result, the former counter

setting shall be considered.

When the set limit has been reached, the coffee

dispensing stops and the following two messages

are displayed:





Reset the counters by pressing the cappuccino
selection key .

Saeco royal type sup 016 e water leaks when i make coffee incoffee grounds cotainer

Hello, First thing is what is the usualy grind level that you grind your grind on? sometimes when the grind is to fine it clogs the nozzle head and causes the unit not to be able to dispense the coffee through the nozzle. Try using a pin or needle to clean the nozzle head it may take a couple times of cleaning it this way in order to alleviate the blockage if you still require the manual message me back I await your reply Thank you

I have a (saeco) type sup 016 royal proof (app # Q95155) cffee machine and i dont know how it works? pls help.. e-mail tyvm

Hi, first the water tank must be full. Turn on the power button, wait for it to heat up-approx 2-3 minutes. You must purge the air out of the system by pushing the button for making coffee ,and at the same time you must turn counter-clockwise the steam knob(frother). Until you see a steady stream of water then only your system will be purged of air. Make sure to never run out of water, or you will have to repeat this process over again. You will also have to fill the dispenser with espesso beans. Good luck with purging the air, it`s a little tricky but really worth it when you indulge with a nice shot of Espresso...

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.

I am assuming your machine grinds, then clicks twice, then the brew drive starts but you never hear the pump.
If this is so? The there is a lever at the top center of the door on the right. Pull the lever back 1 click, and try again.
