    saeco via venezia steam problem

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi,

    I had my machine fully serviced about 6 weeks ago - and its was working like new for about 4 weeks.

    But now, the steam pressure is absolutely woeful. Any suggestions about what could be causing this and how I could rectify?

    Cheers

    Greg

    have you tried cleaning the steam wand inside ? could there be a blockage from milk?

    Still not good even after a clean. It appears to me as if there is just not enough heat generated and so there is only a small amount of steam produced.
    welcome to more ideas ...

    this may seem a silly Q but your boiler is full of water right !!!

    you know how to fill it via the steam wand dont you ? to ensure its full

    dont mean to offend but..... new users can have issues

    if full then i would open the steam wand press steam and wait and see if it heats up and makes steam "try to keep it heating with the element on"
    that said i am no 100% sure on VV operation and buttons but have had a few single boilers

    Not offended ... have been using this machine for many years.

    Steam starts off OK, but then drops off to mere spits of steam.

    sound like it might have a bigger issue

    possibly around the steam thermostat or something, you might need some pro help.... give that service agent a call.

    you could check for lose wires? (but be careful; and please unplug etc 240V and all) if under warranty then leave it to the pro.
