Re: Display says to press cleaning button. Which one is...
Top 2nd row left. The small button with the filled cup icon. It's for short wash (2 mins) and full wash cycle (after opening the pill drop chute) which takes 8 mins to complete. Instructions in your operator's manual.

Too detailed for direct answer. Get operator's manual for dose instructions. Some machines may require programing key (service tech only)
Sorry for this answer as the dosing control is in-bedded with all dosing variances which is considerable. Though with practice it's possible to set it. Have you service tech walk you though the 'operator' or 'customer' programing steps.
Sorry no, the gear drive assembly comes complete with the motor drive. Broken gear is usually caused by something getting into the dose chamber. I've found may an object stuck in the chamber, Don't leave stuff on top of the machine. Don't use hard cleaning pills (check old coffee 'pucks' for unmelted pills) Gross overfilling of coffee will also break gear. Check for oversized coffee pucks (double dosed?)
If this is in reference to the Pasquini K2 Moka Grinder, they are pretty much maintence free. Remove the beans/hopper, then pushing the button on left hand side down, you can unscrew the dial counter-clockwise. This will give you access to the top/bottom mills. Use a wire brush the machine came with to clean the coffee off from the mills teeth which builds up over time. Then reassumble and readjust your grind for the beans you are using.
My experience is working over 10 years at Pasquini as a master technician running the home repair sales and service center.

The top left button on the 2nd row of smaller buttons. It has a filled cup as an icon. press and hold until screen says 'short wash' or group wash. There is also a full cycle washing that is required some time during the day usually at night or start of a work shift. This requires the opening of the 'de-cafe' or pill drop chute. It's a small black slide about the size of a pack of gum. open it and drop a cleaning pill then close it. the panel buttons will blink and the screen will say press cleaning button. press and hold the wash button (as previously mentioned) till the cycle starts to clean. Release button and allow 8 mins for the cycle to complete. This will keep the 'clean cycle' clear until the next shift or next day when it needs to be done again. These instructions should be in your manual that came with the machine.
do you need calibration for brewing??? if it is so than you can try this instructions:
Hold down the stop button for 8-10 seconds or until you hear the faint
beeping sound, press button to program when you get the correct level
press stop button. On some models you have to hold the button until you
get the correct level then release. When you are done programming press
stop button a second time to exit program mode.
