Question about Saeco 00034 Incanto Sirius Super Automatic Espresso/Coffee Machine

Coffee machine faults

I have had this machine for four years and have had it back to saeco 4 times for different issues, this time the fifth time the repair agent said it needed a new motor as it could not drive the brew unit all the way and we aggreed, then they rang us and said a transistor on the power board has now popped.

I told the service agent not to worry as he wanted 600 dollars for repair and i will repair myself.

Why are these machines so unreliable and why do saeco choose dud agents for repairs.

Change the TIP33C transistor as this is a common failure , it controls the voltage to the brew unit motor. Very cheap to repair. Cheers

My Saeco xsmall plus espresso machine is flashing red light on it


Owning this machine for nearly five years, all I can say is that it is an example of problematic engineering. It does not except dark roast some of the time, and if it is very well roasted it won't accept it at all. As the machine is fully automatic, there is not much you can do but roast the coffee to a degree that will be accepted by the machine. IMHO this is an unacceptable decision made by engineers and Saeco should address this issue.

Saeco Vienna Superautomatica will not make a full cup of coffee


Hi,
I'm wondering if you had any luck solving this? After 3 years of great coffee, my machine is only making a 1/4 cup or so. All parts are clean. I'm guessing something on the circuit board that the dial is attached to....thanks!

My saeco machine is not functioning in the right order, it grinds after it makes the pad. So I first hear the clicking sound (meaning it is making the pad first with old grinded coffee) and then it grinds...


HI
Read the first then go to the bold letters.
To program your Magic Dlx: Press and hold the steam and small espresso buttons at the same time, then push the energy saving button (top right). Water Hardness. The large coffee button programs the water hardness. Press the button once and you will have one light in the top row, left side. Press it again and you should have two lights lit. Press it three times and you have three lights lit. Four and you have four lights lit. Press it a fifth time and it goes back to one light. Each light represents your water hardness. So if you have a water hardness of 3, press it until you have three lights lit. Press the energy saver button to exit the program and save your hardness level in the machine’s computer. It will now tell you when you should descale your machine. Pre-infusion. Press the medium coffee button to activate and you should see the light come on. Press the button and turn the light off to deactivate the pre-infusion. Pre-grinding. Pre-grinding is turned on with the cup warming button. When it is lit, the pre-grinding is on. Press the button to turn it off.

Saeco Vienna Coffeemaker won't heat/reach 'ready' state


May be time for a new machine.

Its either the electronics or the boiler, or worse. Both.

Vienna's have a typical life expectancy of about 4 to 7 years. 10 years is very commendable.

If the electronics and boiler are both bad it will end up costing almost as much as purchasing a new machine.

Our saeco incanto turned off for no reason-won't come back on.


Push on the right upper side of the door and see if the light comes on?

Leak


if you clean your brew unit and coffee lines infrequently you're coffee may taste differently when you do get around to cleaning them.

If you are not happy with the taste, I would receommend the following steps
1. A Good Descale (See our article here for on Descaling your Coffee Machine for details) - This will remove excess mineral build up.
2. Try a Saeco Cleaning Tablet in your brew unit - this will remove excess organic build up (Coffee and Grease)
3. Use only filtered water
4. Rinse your brew unit every time you empty your coffee dreg drawer

That should bring your machine back to optimal coffee making condition. If you are still not happy, try some different coffee blends for a while - a change can be as good as a holiday
