Posted Tue Dec 3, 2013, 8:11am Subject: Saeco Via Venezia Pressurized Portafilter Problems, back to back
I purchased a new Via Venezia from Amazon, when it arrived I could not get it to deliver coffee. Everything worked until I tried to get anything to flow through the pressurized portafilter (with and without coffee in it). The curious thing is this is the second time it has happened with a replacement machine after returning the first machine.
Anyone having similar problems?
I have tried it with various grinds (I have a Capriscio (sp?) burr grinder).
No filter and water flows fine.
I am replacing an older, 5 to 7 year old, Via so I have experience and success with the machine.
Saeco is sending me a non pressurized portafilter for my troubles but I am determined to figure this out.
