Subject: Saeco Aroma Blanco problem
 

Newbie to this forum.  We have an older Saeco Aroma machine (had since new), that has been sitting on the shelf for a while, as my wife claims it blows coffee everywhere and makes a mess.  I fired it up today, and the first shot seemed fine.  After rinsing the portafilter, we tried a second shot.  The machine started spewing coffee against the back wall, and making a mess until we shut it off.  My wife says this is the problem - usually the first shot is fine.

What are we doing wrong?   Is there something wrong with the machine?  I thought I would ask before taking in to Saeco on Steeles Ave in Toronto.  Thanks in advance.

hello, I have same one, you m ay need to descaate the machine means  open the broiler , clean with acid solution, clean the heating elements also since it keeps splashing water that means the broiler keeps heating water making more steam while the thermostat is not sending a message to shut it off , you  may need a thermostat m it has one for steam one for temperature .. you may also change the rubber seals under the head and open the valve inside , it require special tools if you miss the screw it will be striped and you will destroy the head. and especialy  if its an old one it may be very well welded with calcium deposit inside.
mine works fine the only thing wrong is the body underneath os all rusted and the powder coated paint is pilling like an egg shels because it used to leak by the time I fixed it the water did its damage. ,
you need also to change the rubber seal between the head and the broiler , once you one the broiler u need one ! it is a )-ring around 3" diameter.
if you want consider  getting  rid of it let me know I may use the body and for other parts and switch the body if yours not rusted. they have a problem water accumulate where the plug wire is attached and screws into the body and with time water eats the paint create  rust and damage the body .
thank you
