Hi,

You have to replace the steam valve, make sure you get one in metal.

Sometimes there will be a strange sound from the brewunit, make sure the filter in brew unit fits tight, if not you get a noisy sound from it.

Check also the hole in chassis behind the brew unit and make sure that is clean.

Saeco Vienna deluxe leaks from above door panel

If your Saeco Vienna Deluxe espresso machine is experiencing leaks from above the door panel during coffee brewing, even after cleaning and descaling, there could be a few potential causes for this issue. Here are some steps you can take to troubleshoot and address the problem:
  1. Check Brew Group Seals: The brew group is a critical part of the espresso machine. If the seals or gaskets on the brew group are worn or damaged, they could allow water to leak out during brewing. Inspect the brew group and its components for any visible signs of wear or damage. If necessary, replace the seals or gaskets.
  2. Check Door Seal: The door seal or gasket that creates a seal between the door and the machine's interior could be compromised. Inspect the door seal for any visible defects, cracks, or damage. If the seal is not making proper contact, it could lead to leaks. Replace the door seal if needed.
  3. Overflowing Drip Tray: Ensure that the drip tray and the drip tray float are functioning properly. If the drip tray is full or the float is stuck, it could lead to water overflowing from above the door panel. Empty the drip tray and ensure that the float moves freely.
  4. Brew Unit Alignment: Make sure the brew unit is properly aligned and inserted into the machine. If it's not properly seated, it can cause water to leak during brewing. Remove the brew unit and reinsert it, ensuring that it clicks into place securely.
  5. Clogged Drainage Channels: Check for any clogs or blockages in the drainage channels or tubes inside the machine. If water is not properly draining, it can result in leaks. Clean out any debris or buildup that you find.
  6. Water Tank Seating: Ensure that the water tank is properly seated and securely in place. If it's not properly positioned, it can lead to water leaks.
  7. Internal Hoses and Connections: Inspect the internal hoses and connections for any signs of leaks or loose connections. Tighten any fittings if necessary.
  8. Professional Service: If the issue persists after checking and addressing the above potential causes, it may be best to seek the assistance of a professional technician or service center that specializes in Saeco espresso machines. They can diagnose and repair more complex issues that might be causing the leaks.

Solis palazzo not producing coffee

I think the blockage might be at the brew unit, remove unit and check the screen under the red o-ring, connected to that is the chute that leads to the espresso spout. That tube might be blocked, there are 2 screws holding that piece together, be careful when you remove them do not lose the spring and ball in the fitting. Clean tube and reassemble.

Saeco Vienna machine...after brewing a couple of cups of coffee, water leaks from somewhere and comes out underneath the front grilled tray and onto the counter. Can I do the repair with the proper parts?

Depending on your ability to do some technical and minutious manual work, unmounting and remounting the machine is feasable.

Concerning the leaking, what I've seen most is a leak from the seal under the water tank. Any leaks coming form there would occur even though no coffee would be dispensed. (i.e: Idle mode)

If leak is ONLY occurring when brewing cofee, I would check the following:

1- Check if the water inlet on the back of the brew unit is filled with residue (the inlet looks like the end of a smoke pipe)

2-Open the machine, take out the interior, and verify the water tubes coming in and out of the boiler. They both should be sealed with 2 small o-rings. After time, o-ring tend to expand under heat and may start to leak.

Hope this helps

When I try to make espresso with my new XP2070, water comes out through the steam arm and not through the nozzles. I've tried it without coffee and all the water still comes out through the steam/hot water...

David, the XP2070 won't operate properly until you've set the clock on the unit.

In case you don't have an owner's manual, I've attached a copy of the manual from the Krups site that you can download and print for free.

Please take some time to reaquaint yourself with the setup and procedure for using the expresso portion of the unit, as you might just have some sequence issues that is preventing the expresso from getting brewed.

Otherwise, it could be that the unit has a faulty seal in the pressure vessel that isn't allowing the expresso side to function properly, hence the reason the water might be coming out of the frothing tube instead of through the expresso brewing section.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Water leaking and coffee dry

Sounds like the boiler is blocked, and machine needs to be descaled. Try this first remove the parnello if your machine has one on the steam wand then using a paperclip clear out the end of the wand, that might be blocked. If it isn't then run the descale to clear out the blockage in the boiler.

Remove brew chamber, check the back of the white plastic valve make sure the chamber under it is clear of coffee grounds and water, then check the red o-ring on the brew chamber make sure there are no cracks or damaged spots.

Steam comes from wand when set to dispense water.

Check the connection to the boiler from the pump, there is no water going to the boiler. Try this test, remove the brew unit you will see a white plastic valve behind it, carefully lift the small lever on the valve(HOT WATER), if water sprays, then the problen is at the brew unit, if no water then the boiler inlet or outlet is clogged.

Water coming out of steam nozzle not coffee output when making coffee

Sounds to me there might be a blockage on the brew unit, and since the pressure is so high it is going through the bypass. Clean the screen and tubes on the brew unit.
