First, you're going to need to get the brew group out. Check this out to get the brew group out. You need to remove a screw and pull unless you're really crafty.
This video will help.
a) Yes, lubing will help.
b) Replace the o-ring on the piston in the brew group (it should be orange). It gets old and gummy creating resistance.
c) Reinforce the weak plastic that gets over-torqued.
I own three of these units, one from 2007 (made in Italy, never broke, has tens of thousands of brews) and two newer units (made in Eastern Europe, fewer brews, both broke). I can distinguish the newer ones because they have a "sleep mode". They really overtorque the gear.
I tried repairing with just glue and that lasted (surprisingly) several months. I tried again by using a thick paperclip as a drill bit and that lasted 7 months.
Now with the holes piloted, I drilled a little wider and put in heavier metal from a heavy-duty binder clip. Cheap and very strong! Let's see how long this lasts.
See before and after pictures. This metal won't bend!
First, I'm Not a Saeco Representative, though I have worked on some Saeco machines.
** Most cases of one side not dispensing coffee is usually coffee that has dried and built up over time to coat the least used spout. This is caused by the machine not being flushed or cleaned daily.
** Follow the MFR's daily cleaning instructions to keep you unit operating properly.
** fill a glass up of water to the rim and place on drain tray. the water in the cup should be even with the glass lip all around the cup. If it's leaning to one side then your machine (or table it on) needs to be level in order for the spout to dispense evenly. Another way to check is to place 2 shot glasses under each spout and brew a double shot. Both should fill at the same time and be the same amount when finished.
** Check your MFR's kit to see if there is a small brush to allow for nozzle cleaning. Otherwise follow the cleaning instructions and do multiple cleanings to get rid of the coffee residue. Once cleaned you need to maintain a regular cleaning schedule.
** There are no serviceable parts in these small home machines. Suggest contacting your vendor or Saeco for service or replacement.
you have to put a litle quantity of vinegar about one botlle and rinse it trouuth hot water knob and then refill the water tank with fresh water and rinse it all water. That must help you. Instead of vinegar you can use liquid for descaling if you have.
Look at the brewing group where the top strainer is. The small holes are blocked with coffee. The water can not pass through them.
You will need to unfold the two screws at the top and then remove the strainer, grow and clean it and clean it if the holes are blocked.
Do this only
After grinding did you hear the brew group goes up and pump start? If you hear the pump start and stopped, itis blockage in the brewunit metal screen. Just needs cleaning.
If you don't hear the pump starting, the problem is with the faulty micro switch inside the gearbox , that is behind the plate of brewunit.(service center job)
