Product Description

Does your coffee taste off? Does it drip around your portafilter? These might be indications that it is time to put the Seattle Coffee Gear Tune-Up Kit to good use. Depending on how often you use your machine will inform your maintenance schedule. Typical daily users require maintenance at 3 or 6 month intervals. More occasional users may find that annual maintenance is sufficient.

More fun than a barrel of monkeys! Although if the monkeys had wrenches you could set them to work on your Saeco Via Venezia Espresso Machine maintenance with this handy tune-up kit brought to you by the Seattle Coffee Gear crew.

  • Brew head screen
  • Brew head screw
  • Brew head gasket
  • Boiler ball valve and valve spring
  • (1) - 1 ounce packet of Dezcal

Will the tune-up kit for a Saeco Via Venezia also work for an old Starbucks Estro Profi? Or is it a different kit?
A shopper on Dec 6, 2014
Best Answer: Yes, the tune-up kit for the Via Venezia will work on the Estro Profi. Essentially, this is the updated model of that machine, with many of the same components, including the parts of the brew head.

Will this kit stop the leaking around our machine's steam wand?
Jim B on Feb 7, 2016
Best Answer: No, this will not address leaking around the steam wand. It is primarily for the interface of the brewing cup/handle. If you are having leaking around the brew head, however, this kit will do the trick. This particular machine does lend itself to fairly easy repair and I suspect you will be able to fix the steam wand; however, you will need to consider taking it apart to identify the problem. Hopefully it is just a seal. Good luck.

I have Starbucks Barista Saeco Sin006 and after removing the screen I can't turn the boiler valve holder screw/bushing to remove it so as to replace the spring and mushroom valve. Mine is made of brass (not stainless steel). Is there a trick when stuck?
stephen R on Mar 2, 2016
Best Answer: I installed 2 tuneup kits in a very old Starbucks Barista (Saeco Via Venizia), and that screw was a major challenge. I have a screwdriver kit with multiple bits and was fortunate to locate one that was thick enough to allow me to exert enough pressure on the brass screw without ruining the slot, but also narrow enough to fit into the recess where the screw is located. It took a lot of pressure to turn the stuck screw, and if the driver bit didn't fit snugly, the screw could be damaged. There used to be an instructional video on the SCG website that suggested a tool for this operation, but I couldn't find that video today or remember what was recommended if you don't have a screw driver that fits. Anyway, if you can't find a driver or bit that fits tight enough, you might have to buy a cheap one and modify it to fit by grinding or filing it.

Sorry for the repeat "does this fit my machine" question. I have an older Proteo Barista machine -- from what I can tell it's exactly like the Starbucks model. Will this kit fit my machine?
Brian C on Jun 27, 2016
Best Answer: I have the old Starbucks machine that is the relabeled Via Venezia and this kit was the right one.

I have Via Venezia that one of the four brew head screws snapped and leaks from the piece that sits on top( not sure what its called) and connects the two. I would like to know if there is a gasket that sits between the two parts and can it be replaced?
A shopper on May 9, 2016
Best Answer: I assume you are talking about the four screws right next to the brew head that go to the plate above it. They often come loose and I have had to hand tighten them many times. I have never lost one and, unfortunately, can't speak to whether there is a gasket up there. I am also assuming that you have checked the drip tray and it didn't simply fall in there. Also, I'm assuming that you've tried to replace the screw to see if that would solve the problem. I wish I had more suggestions.

I filled my cupt with Illy coffee and placed it in the machine. Turned on the cup ikon and the pump makes noise but nothing comes out.
The steamer works fine and foams the milk wonderfully.
Will changing the filter, bushing and casket correct this problem?
Paul B on Oct 9, 2015
Best Answer: The first question would be if you can get water from the brew head without the portafilter on. If you can, then it's not the ball valve and spring, gasket, or screen that needs to be changed. If you can't get water from the brew head, then replacing these parts could certainly help, but there might also be a clog in the water pathway further up the line. Descaling would be the most helpful if you can get water to flow from the steam wand, and hopefully after some descaling, you can also get water to come through the brew head.

If you can get water through the brew head, then it has to do with your coffee or the portafilter. If your coffee is too fine or there's too much in the filter basket, that will impede water from flowing through as it should. The other possibility is that the portafilter is plugged up, so the first suggestion would be to try the portafilter on the machine without any coffee in the basket, and see if you can get water to flow through. It may just need to be cleaned, so you can try soaking the filter basket, and portafilter in a backflush detergent and water mixture, or in hot soapy water before scrubbing it clean.

Why do you have to replace the shower head screen? Being a metal part, I don't see that it will wear from water being pushed through it.
Gary N on Jul 21, 2015
Best Answer: It often gets corroded from coffee oils. Also, it sometimes gets ruined when taking off the screw.

What do i do if i cant get the screen off?
evan p on Dec 25, 2014
Best Answer: If you can't seem to remove the screw at the center, meaning the screw is either stripped or too stiff to break free, you can bend the screen around the screw to create a taco. This will break the screen (good thing the tune-up kit comes with it) so that you can remove the screen. After the screen is removed, it will give just a little bit of distance between the screw head and the bushing, so you can use pliers to grip the screw and turn it loose to remove it. From there, continue with performing your tune-up! :-)
