Question about Saeco Vienna SuperAutomatica Coffee Maker/Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Boiler U/S? Water does not heat up, and ready light does not stop flashing. Once water is heated its supposed to stay a steady green. Have traced a new element from UK company but how do I get to the Old one. Cannot see which screws to undo to allow access to the rear of the machine and into boiler/heating element. Help! Can remove all of the parts for cleaning etc but which screws do I undo to get to the back? Suppliers also need to know what shape my heating element is - round or oval and i cannot see until i get in the back of it

    I have the same symptoms. When turned on the middle green light flashes and the boiler does not heat up. I have taken the machine apart and it seems that one of the heating elements has blown.



    Lecop, could you please let me know where you managed to source the replacement heating element?



    Regards,

    I have the same problem. The middle light does not stop flashing. According to the manual it may be time to descale. Must buy appropriate descaling product and not use vinegar. Also, supposed to use bottled or filtered water and not tap water to make coffee. I have no idea what is to be descaled but think it may be the brew group (the removable thing inside)

    is it possible the brew group needs to be descaled? The middle light remains blinking and can not get a cup of coffee to brew.

Hi,

Take off the water tank, you will se one screw in the chassis, look in the beenhopper and there will you see two screw, loosen this to. Open the door and look up to the right corner and left corner there will you see one screw in each corner, loose this. take of the steam knob. Take of the top.
Look at the right corner and you will see one screw that has to be loosen. If you have to change the boiler you can put a screwdriver in the hole on the right side between the top and chassis and ****, now you can lift up all and work with it on the table.

La pavoni stops boiling water


Run some WHITE vinegar through it, followed by plain water a few times. The heating system gets a buildup in it and requires cleaning from time to time.

Tip

Flashing or blinking green clean light 7 times?


This dishwasher looks for a temperature rise of the water during a heating cycle if it fails to see this rise for multiple cycles it may shut down and blink the clean light 7 times.

The failure can be wide ranging here are a few things to check before resetting the control.

-The unit not being level so both door switches do not make contact

- The sump plugged up so water is not pumping across the heater (see sump clean out below)

- Not enough water filling the dishwasher

- The heat element is not working

To reset the control use this key dance within 5 seconds press:

HEATED DRY, NORMAL, HEATED DRY, NORMAL

This will cause you to enter the diagnosis cycle once this is finished or you hit cancel the control should be unlocked and ready to use.

Hi,

The clean light usually will blink due to a failure to heat the water properly. This dishwasher looks for a temperature rise of the water during a heating cycle if it fails to see this rise for multiple cycles it may shut down and blink the clean light.

Solis palazzo espresso maker / water tank problem


HI
Did you push the water button, before you opened the knob? When you finished descaling did the lights change? On any compact machine you need the let the pump stop on its own. Then go to the next part, rinsing. Again letting the machine stop on its own. Pump will stop and the lights will change. Once the machine has finished rinsing. You will have a steady water light and a blinking green light. Put your tank back on with fresh water, then push the water button(far right), then open the knob for water. The red light should go out, and the machine will heat again.

Hi
When was the last time you descaled the machine? Scale will build up inside the boiler and insulate the water from the heating elements. The thermostat is on the outside by the heating elements so it gets hot but your water is warm. There are other things but check this first.

are you holding button down long enough for thermal coupler to warm up? after pilot lights up, don't immediately let go of button for about 15 to 20 seconds then let go and pilot should stay on. If not, you may need a new thermal coupler for that water heater

Yellow light comes on to heat water, but does not change to green


I would try opening and closing the disc enclosure latch-- this triggers the machine to re-read the barcode and start a new cup of beverage. If the machine perceives that water needs to be heated more, the yellow light to should flash and the cycle to green when ready. If the water is already hot enough, when you close the latch, it will flip right to green.

Give this a try.

Power light blinks


I found a solution, Heat. When the set is on and heats up it stays on, but once off for the night it gets cold and can't start, try using a hair dryer on full blast and put the heat around the back top vent like structure and wait for the light to stop blinking, this only takes about 2 min or so
