Question about Saeco Royal Professional Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Pressure loss I've lost most of the pressure in my Saeco for the second time now. The first time it was under warranty and Saeco took care of it. I remember the invoice(which I didn't need to pay) showed around $4.00 in parts and 2 hours of labor. It's now doing it again and I don't remember what the problem was. I'm assuming it's the boiler seals. Can someone tell me if I'm on the right track and if that's a common deal with the Saeco's?(A friend with an italia also has been through the same problem 3 times). Also, I found a place I can order the boiler gasket set from and was wondering if this was a terrible chore to attempt myself(I'm very mechanically inclined). Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Loss of pressure sounds like a faulty pump. You can test that by taking it out of circuit and putting it across 240 volts to see if it passes water. The pumps coil is not polarity conscious. If it makes noises but doesn't pass water, then replace it.
A noisy pump is a sure sign of it being inefficient.

Saeco coffee machine won't allow milk dispenser to click in

If it's under warranty, call Saeco for guidance. If it's not, CAREFULLY clean every possible part using small brushes (old toothbrushes work well, as do coffee percolator/straw cleaning brushes. They're long and skinny and have a long wire stem and handle. found mine at Bed Bath and Beyond), q-tips and "canned air," like "Dust-Off" I'ts available at walmarts, some grocery stores, electronics shops, big box stores, etc.

if you REALLY feel daring and know a little bit about a lot of stuff, and it's NO longer in warranty, labeling every single piece as it's removed, take the machine apart as far as needed to see whether the problem is mechanical (dirty or clogged), or electrical/electronic. then re-assemble and test. ;-) good luck and hope you get it running!

I have a 2005 cadillac cts with 90,000 miles and

Have the transmission fluid changed/new filter and use a premium synthetic fluid instead of cheap ol generic fluid. Think mobil1 full synthetic for the tranny. If it's never been changed this will make a dramatic difference.

This is the second time I've had electronic problems with my semi auto solis crema. The first time we sent this to empire fulfillment & it took 8 months to repair. I live in Michigan. Any...

Find a gaggia or saeco repair agent in your area, the machine is similar, and they should have no problem helping you, or if you are up to it you can repair it, with a little help of course.
First what is the machine not doing?
Second you will need a long thin phillips screwdriver, and some long torx drivers.

Saeco pressurized portafilter gets stuck in the locked position

No, no... He has a Saeco pressurized portafilter which has a valve that will not allow coffee through when the portafilter handle is pushed all the way to the right. His handle is locking in the rightmost position; this is not a grounds problem.

mjtourig: Can you not just nudge the handle to the left before you pull a shot to unlock it? If it is too clogged for that, try taking your portafilter apart to clean it. You'll have to remove the 3 screws on the bottom, and be very careful the entire time that you do not lose any of the parts (in particular, there is a spring under one of the screws that will want to pop out, and a tiny white plastic thing under that spring...). Good luck!
