Steam nozzle leaking

Our Saeco Aroma is a year and a half and it always worked very well. @ weeks ago the steam nozzle started leaking. It still makes great coffee but there is water all over the kitchen counter. The machine was descaled 5 weeks ago. Thanks

Hi! hope i'm not too late, since this leaking problem occur's quite often, specially when one's tends to overtight the valve, the proposed solutios will certainly help thousand of happy Saeco owners.
Anyway i happened to live with it but after a second valve replacement, i got fed up with filling too often the reservoir and fixed it at Zero cost. What i did is realy easy:
1- Find a bearing the size of the plunger of the needle valve; the thiny steel ball in a nail polish bottle is what i used.
2- When the electric cord is pulled off the wall outlet, take the cover off, reach to the snap locker and pull it off.
3- Unscrew the needle valve plunger off the cylinder, grind or file the
tip 3/16 of an inch, making sure it is at rite angle cut.
4- Insert the ball in the valve body and push it with the flattened tip
over the vapor down stream and screw. You now have a new valve that will outlast your coffe maker.

If the valve leaks, remove the top, locate the snap ring of the valve stem and remove it then unscrew the valve completely and examine the tip. If it's worn out with a deep circular groove you may need a new valve, but try to resurface it first. That worked for me. And yes, there are one or two o-rings you may need to replace.

Actually in another thread for another Saeco machine mirran suggested a procedure for changing the gaskets only and not the entire valve. So on the Aroma, the ENTIRE valve must be changed? Thanks!

Hi,

I think you have to replace the steam valve in your machine.

The steam light on my Saeco Aroma does not turn on (and no steam comes out), even after the brew light turns on and I press the steam button. How can I get my steam to work?


HI
It is probably your steam thermostat that needs to be replaced. There are 2 thermostats. The Brew and steam. If one of them fail it won't heat the boiler for that mode. They are easy to replace.

I had replace my on off rocker switch on my aroma nero after a couple of years I was able to swap out my switch for heating the steam as a temporary fix I purchased a replacement switch from Sacco at that time but I think now you might have to go to a secondary parts dealer I have kept this machine a live for over 12 years and am now going back to it after fighting with my new automatic machine sure it was easy but the taste just was not the same the kids can have it they put so junk in their coffee how would they know pbjh2o@yahoo.com

Ventilate shows, nothing works


There is an air lock in the hydraulic line of the machine, thats why it is calling for ventilate, if hot water valve is open and it is still calling for ventilate, then it is possible that the valve is blocked, it might be at top of the wand or at the tap rod assembly.

Saeco Aroma steemer spit out a lot of hot water


This is normal. The solution is to let the steam wand run for a few seconds to purge all of the liquid water from the system before you begin steaming your milk. It will take about 10 seconds or so. You can do it into the drip tray, into a pitcher or bowl, onto a rag, or even on the counter. The key is not to put your milk under the wand until all of the liquid water is gone and all that is left is steam. Good luck!

Nozzle won't stay on steam tube


There should be two rubber pieces inside the threaded collar & cap that help produce a pressure fit onto the wand itself. There is a total of five plastic pieces on my steam wand excluding the wand itself on my Via Venezia by Saeco I purchased a year ago. Sounds to me like you lost one of you rubber gromets! Just my thoughts!
