Descaling helps, but right answer is grinder is stuck. Power down, restart, let it run its start up cycle. before you hit the coffee brew button, use a magnet in place of the coffee bean lid. this will trick it that I has a lid on it, then grab a 10mm socket with extension and ratchet. You will click the coffee brew button while turning the grinder counter clockwise immediately with the 10mm socket right after you click the button or same time if you can manage. Turning the ratchet quick enough for it to slide off as it the grinder starts to spin on its own. I did this twice, kind of a kick start to the grinder. it will dislodge whatever is blocking it and BAM, complete.
The pump will not work if the grinder is not spinning to brew a coffee. so you have to jumpstart the grinder, grind the beans, tamp it and then the pump runs water through it.

You need to run the descale process, which essentially cleans the plumbing.

While performing the descaling the brew group gets stuck


Have you check if the knob on the top of the machine to distribute hot water is fully closed. If on the edge, you may not get hot water flowing but the light may be on.

Look on page 12 of the manual. It explain the the meaning of the led flashing or stayed on from the control panel

Good luck

Make sure the brew group is in
rest position; the two references
must match.(look at the marks/arrows on the side of the brew group)

Make sure the components are in
the correct position.
The hook shown must be in the
correct position; to check its
position, firmly press the "PUSH"
button.

Can you you tell me why there is a flashing red light on the coffee machine


Descaling light:
• on and fl ashing: signals the need to perform a descaling cycle

Machine ready light:
• permanently on: signals that the machine is ready for use.
• on and fl ashing: signals that the machine is warming up.

Alarm light:
• permanently on : signals the machine is out of coffee, the water tank is
empty, the drip tray is full or the dregdrawer is full (in this case, also empty
the coffee grounds drawer in order to prevent failures).
• on and fl ashing slowly: signals that the brew group is not inserted, the
dregdrawer is not inserted the coffee bean hopper lid is not on, the service
door is open or the steam/hot water knob is not correctly turned to the
desired position.
• on and quickly fl ashing: signals the need to prime the water circuit.

The alarm light to empty the coffe grounds drawer AND the descaling light flash alternately I cleaned the brew group. Machine comes ready, but when I press to make a coffee it comes back with alternate...


Hi, the problem with your machine is with the grinder motor (not working).As soon as you press the coffee the CPU senses the motor is out of circuit and the lights start flashing alternately.
You can test it by doing this. Press and hold the steam button and switch on the machine, you will see the lights going around in anticlockwise direction. Release the button then turn the dial to left (Min) and press the steam button the grinder should work. The dial on the right (Max) the brew group will come up..and half way it will come back to normal position. Press the coffee button in that position will work the pump. Servicecenter can fix this if the machine is less than 2 year old FOC.

Thw lights are flashing in an alternating style and I cannot get them to stop. I have cleaned and lubricated the brew group, turned the machine off, etc -- NOTHING is working


It wants you to descale..... look in the user manual for instructions how. When you have done it hold down the steam button for 10 secs to reset the descale warning lamp.

besides descaling you need to lube the brew group, especially the bit that accepts the group nozzle. You might have a leaking boiler too, 6 years is pretty good for a vienna.

Remove the brew group and look for the two red o-rings on teh brass bit, smear some lube on it, they might need replacing by now, but luckily they aren't too expensive and readily available albeit a bit tricky to install, a good light and some patience is very important.
