The spring is most likely from the door that spills the ground into the brew group. Take the brew group out. The door is in the top right side of the space. The spring shuts the door when grinding and it should be closed when the brew group comes out. The door opens only when the ejecting the grounds into the brew group.

Motor that moves brewing group started moving very slowly. it can make it on time to make coffee. Anyone know what could the problem be? Mashine worked great just untill today.

Hi, I had the same problem. The motor ran too slow because it did not receive the adequate amount of power. The power is handled by a small part on the circuit board. I replaced it by a part I bought on ebay called Transistor BD245C (or TIP 33C). Now it's working perfect again :-) Details can be found on ebay by typing '262197092158' in the search box. Although the page is in German, it has several pictures that make clear which part is meant. Good luck!

I believe based on symptoms you described, that it is most likely just a good descaling cleaning it needs, try using CLR, OR some vinegar and water, run this through machine a few times, you can even use denture cleaner. I don't think it is your pump based on your symptoms.

Is my "brew group" broken.

Remove the brew unit, under the white plastic valve you will notice a small chamber that might be filled with coffee grounds and water. Clean chamber.

Saeco Vienna grinds too much coffee.

If you have the Delux or Digital there are 2 knobs in the bean hopper. Turn the small knob back 1 mark and see if that will help.

Grind settings

The factory setting should be 8. The higher numbers are finer. The + and - knob is the doser amount, the amount of coffee in a shot dose. Average is 7 gm, the middle. The highest is 14, I think. Generally, the highest dose shouldn't be used consistently because it can cause stress on the brew group. Just brew two shots.

Saeco Vienna gear jammed

This has happened to me. If the problem is the brew group gear is in the wrong position, you can manipulate the brew group until it matches up with the drive gear in the machine. You'll know it matches if you can insert the brew group back in the machine full until it clicks.
