SOURCE: Saeco Magic Deluxe resets itself before completing brew cycle

Hi Try reprogramming the machine. Push and hold the button for the coffee you want, but hold it all the way through the process. Don't release the button until you get the amount of coffee you want for that button, then release the button. That should get you the same amount next time. You can do this for each coffee button. If that doesn't fix it, then you might need a new flow meter.

SOURCE: I have a Saeco Magic De Luxe. I am having a problem intermittent

Could be the pump not providing enough pressure to force the water through the coffee. When using beans or preground, can you still hear the pump function?

Open the door on the right. The brew unit is the thing with the handle that has the push on it. You need to push on the upper left side of the brew unit until it clicks. There is an outlet spout on the opposite side of where you are pushing. It goes into an intake port that needs to be lubed, so the outlet spout will slide in without pushing back. That should take care of the missing brew unit.

SOURCE: estro magic delux (now saeco i think) water leaks below brew unit

There is a small metal plate with holes below the square funnel shape on the brew unit. This plate has a pink rubber seal and a stem that goes up into the brew unit. The stem is knurled with ridges and is attached to a screw on the plate. The screw has become loose and the plate is not held tight against the seal. Turn the knurled knob clockwise until it tightes the plate against the bottom of the unit. Make sure the plate is centered as I believe there is a slight lip that it recesses into. Should stop the water in the grounds collector. Of course the seal must be in good condition. Paul

SOURCE: my saeco magic deluxe, doesn't make coffee all the time

Sounds like early stage of stripped gears in Gear assembly or faulty Main electronic board. These are the 2 most common problems.

Coffee is not dispensing during brewing, water dispenses in the tray


There is a lot of things that can cause that. The first place I would look is the injector behind the brew unit. Remove the brew unit. The injector is the finger with the 2 orange O-rings on it. If it is loose it will not go through the brew unit, just into the tray.
If the boiler is leaking it will go into the tray and under the machine. Any other leak would be coffee going into the tray.

Hi
Check behind the drip tray for coffee grounds. Make sure that your drip tray is locked in. If its not fully locked it, this could be your problem. If everything is removed but the brew unit, grab the handle without pushing the press button, and pull. If the brew unit comes out, it wasn't locked in. Put the drip tray in. Set the brew unit on the drip tray. Now slide the brew unit towards the machine with a little force and see if that locked it in?

Leak


if you clean your brew unit and coffee lines infrequently you're coffee may taste differently when you do get around to cleaning them.

If you are not happy with the taste, I would receommend the following steps
1. A Good Descale (See our article here for on Descaling your Coffee Machine for details) - This will remove excess mineral build up.
2. Try a Saeco Cleaning Tablet in your brew unit - this will remove excess organic build up (Coffee and Grease)
3. Use only filtered water
4. Rinse your brew unit every time you empty your coffee dreg drawer

That should bring your machine back to optimal coffee making condition. If you are still not happy, try some different coffee blends for a while - a change can be as good as a holiday

No coffee, water going to the drip tray


OK, so this is a problem with your brew unit. The unit is not cycling correctly to tell the water to come through.

We had another problem like this just this week.

The wat we fixed it was 1) Give the Brew Unit a really good clean. 2)Make sure the Brew Unit can complete a cycle - manually rotate the brew unit components through a cycle 3) Lubricate the Brew Units moving parts if necessary using some Saeco or Other Food Grade Lubricant

Then try watch a complete coffee cycle by leaving the side door of your machine open, and tricking the micro switches into thinking the door is closed by engaging them with some card or something similar.

Let us know if this does not resolve your issue.
