Question about Saeco Easy Espresso Machine
I think I have the solution. The "thwok, thwok, thwok" noise is a solenoid opening and then slamming the trap door that dispenses the coffee. Mine had a similar problem.
Upon removing the top, I found that the solenoid, and further that the mount where it attaches to the plastic frame was broken. Basically, the little plastic fin that should hold the lower flange of the solenoid was sheared off. That left the solenoid free to move, and made it impossible to complete the action to move the dispenser trap door.
It looked like there was no easy way to replace that part of the plastic mount, so I epoxied and zip-tied the solenoid into place. It seemed to do the trick. I doubt it will last forever.

OK, you can just press the big button again and it should continue the grind and make a cup. If it doesn't, then open the machine and remove the catcher tray, then take out the big grey grinder thingy. Sometimes a load of coffee is stuck in the chute. Wipe it out with a paper towel. Also check the feed tube that fills the grey grinder. Coffee can get stuck if any moisture has entered the grinder.
