Question about Saeco Vienna De Luxe Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Saeco Vienna deluxe machine will not prime

The guy i bought it from had it in storage. It sounds like the pump is working but no water comes out. I only tried it for short period as i dont want it to overheat and damage anything. I am not sure how to acess the water line to check for a bockage or to check to see if maybe it has some sort of vapor lock.

Any info would be great

    Where would I find a bellows pump to try this?

  • janetind Aug 16, 2008

    I have a Saeco Vienna Superautomaitca. It hasn't been used for about 1 year and now when I first turn it on the machine will not prime. My maintenance book says to 'manually prime' the machine with the manual pump. I no longer have the manual pump that came with the machine. Do you know if I can use something else to manually prime it - or can you tell me where I can find a replacement manual pump thing?

    Many thanks,

try to open the steam knob and see if there will come out some water, if not then you have air in the system.

Try to take a bellowpump and press in water where the hole for the watertank in the machine are, open the steam knob so the pump is running when you do this.

    Try a similar pump, you only have to force in water to the machine when the machine takes water then you have to put the water tank back again.

On Vienna Deluxe after the beans are ground and ready to drop the espresso shots, nothing comes out and the red light goes on? I shut the unit off for a minute or so, turn it back on and it works ok, but...

Solid red light is a ventilate light.. Try Priming the machine to see if the light goes away.

Something may be in the flow meter. Its the while device between the water tank and the pump of the machine. You would have to open the machine and clean out the flow meter.

Also, if you haven't descaled the machine already, I would start there.

Make certain the line from the water resource is cleaned and not obstructed. If the pump fails to move the water from the reservoir to the heating tank, then the pump needs to be replaced.

Saeco Vienna Deluxe starts brew cycle then red light comes on

I think you put the tubes on backwards to the flow meter. The inlet side of the flow meter is by the pump and the exit to the pump is by the water tank. They cross.

Stuck on ventilate

Try this, open steam wand, if it calls for ventilate pusi in steam knob, if that works then the tap rod on the steam valve needs to be replaced. To me it sounds like the machine is building up pressure and the discharge is not releasing through the water circuit.
