20 Most Recent Saeco Royal Digital Plus Coffee Maker/Espresso Machine Questions & Answers

After a tons of browsing and debugging finally I got the real solution to my similar problem with a Saeco Minuto HD8763 coffee machine: the root cause was a bad hall sensor and a weak magnet at the grinder toothwheel (the left magnet whcih was removed from it's original place). The upper one was okay and down under there is the replacement magnet which I made from a piece of HDD neodymium magnet and glued to fix it.
The original hall sensor was marked as "210k 3491" ("HAL506K" based on some other service manuals) and the new one was a cheap non-smd but same size, unipolar "TLE4905" type.

The dispenser is the brew unit in the back of the machine above the drain tray, open door and remove the black unit within and check the screen above the red o-ring.

If the pump is only getting 50v of power, then the power board may have a bad resistor and the board will need to be replaced. This is an older machine, so it may be hard to find a new one. Refurbs are never a good idea, so you may end up purchasing a new machine in this case.

Hi If you make a pre-ground shot but don't put any coffee in it, and it does the same thing you have a blockage in the brew head. If it run normally, your grind is to fine. Push the grinder lever to a larger number. It takes 3 times to change to the new grind. If it still dribbles, remove the brew unit (behind the door) Holding the handle, the top left side is the brew head. There is an outlet pipe that exits the backside towards the machine (looks like an "L" pipe). 2screws hold it to the top. Remove the 2 screws while holding the manifold ("L" pipe assembly). Once they are removed, lift the l assembly off (becareful, there is an O-ring, spring and inside a crystal ball (don't loose it or your out of luck). Turn the brew unit upside down while holding the brew head in your other hand and the crystal ball should fall out. If it doesn't come out put a towel down and tap the brew unit on the towel. This should force it out. Now remove the brew screen, by holding the screen with your finger and twisting the thumbscrew (remember thumbscrew, DON'T use the key to install the screen, use your fingers..... Once the screen is out look at where the screen was. There are 2 holes. 1 big one in the center and a small one to the side. With the brew unit upside down over the towel insert a paperclip into the small hole and force anything out the other side. I have gotten worms almost a 1" long from this passage. The paper clip has to go from this side to prevent damage to the seat on the other side. Clean then reassemble. Brew unit on towel right side up. Drop the crystal ball in first. Then the spring small end first on the crystal ba Now the O-ring over the spring, then place the manifold on top of that with the pipe towards the machine. Insert your screws (I turn them backwards a little with a little downward pressure until they feel like they drop into the threads. They should turn down easily, if not back them up a little more ( we are trying to find the old threads) and tighten. Install screen, and tighten with your fingers. The screen just needs to be flush with the bottom of the brew head. Run another pre-ground without the coffee and rinse it out. Do this once in a while to prevent this.

hi my name is Lee Davidian here is your answer
Automatic Decalcifying Cycle
The automatic decalcifying cycle keeps the machine in perfect operating order. When prompted by the user, mineral buildups in the internal boiler can be dissolved and removed with Saeco’s decalcifying solution and a push of a button.
