Question about Saeco Magic De Luxe Espresso Machine
I have tried to remove the central unit to clean it. I was able to do so in the past. I can open the door and press the tab that says "Press". The unit will move a bit, but is stuck on the lefthand side, possibly where the little tube is. Thank you for any help, which I urgently need!
I finally gave up pulling on the central unit - so I just closed the door & it reset & I was then able to easily remove the central unit to clean it.

Two possibilities. You inturrpted the cycle and need to put it all together and turn it on and let it finish the cycle. If this does not work: It is possible that the gear motor is bad or it was overfilled and just can't compress the coffee in it. The brew unit has a small screw on the inside back rail. If you remove this small screw and pull out on the unit it seperates the unit from the receiver that is stuck to the boiler right now. If you can seperate this and depress the switch that the brew unit trips when in and with all the other parts in close the door and let it finish the cycle. If it does you should be able to reinsert the unit. If this does not work go on line and look for an authorized Saeco repar center they can help you.

Push the left side as your push the "Press" button. Push down and back. They do get stuck sometimes. Keep trying. Don't break it, but I used a screw driver one time. Be gentle. Take a deep breath.

You need to advise the model .. but assuming its the CVA 40XX series ... the frist thing to check is the dispenser which has the two pipes comming out of the bottom. This can get coffee residue build up which usually causes 1 or both pipes to have reduced coffee flow. Indication that this is at fault are if the flow is uneven between the pipes or if coffee flows down the outside of dispenser. You can chck this pipework for blocages by openeing door and blowing air though the pipe extending on inside of door. The the dispenser is blocked you need to remove from rear of door and then clean out thoroughly in running water. If this pipework is not and
You need to advise the model .. but assuming its the CVA 40XX series ... here is what I would do;
1. First check is the coffee dispenser on front which has the two pipes coming out of the bottom. This can get coffee residue build up which usually causes one or both pipes to have reduced coffee flow. The indication that this is at fault is if the coffee flow is uneven between the pipes or if coffee flows down the outside of dispenser. You can also check the dispenser for blockages by opening door and blowing air though the pipe extending on inside of the door. The air should flow through easily. If the dispenser is blocked you need to remove from rear of door and then clean out thoroughly in running water.
2. Next check the pump and water path. The pump for the coffee is also used for producing hot water. So if the hot water is working normally then you can rule out the pump. If you not getting hot water then its likely to be the pump or a blockage in the flow through water heater.
3. If above OK then it's a fault with Brew Unit. Follow procedure to remove the brew unit, clean unit and test the air path through both pipes by blowing. Note: When you take out brew unit it not possible to access one of the pipes because its protected by a plastic shield. There is a manual procedure to manipulate the brew unit to expose this pipe so you can blow through it. However the likely cause is not a blockage in these two pipes but the stainless steel filter that the coffee must pass through. You will need an Allen key to remove the bolt holding this in place. Once removed you need to check all holes are free of blockage by inserting a very small wire in each hole. Alternately you can replace this part. If the filter is clogged then you should consider using a different type of coffee as some types coffees cause this problem and others do not.
I hope this helps. regards
