After a cleaning of the group, we're not able to put it back

When the group was out of the machine, we put power on. The axe of the group changed a bit and is not fitting with the group position anymore. How can we change the axe manual ? thanks.

First step: You need to make the machine think that the group is in place.
Solution: This can be done by locating the three microswitches that need to be set. Turn machine on/Open the door/insert wastetray&dredgebox (switch One)/with plastic stir stix(noconductive material) active brewer microswitch located in the centre of the back wall/with plastic stir stix(noconductive material) active door microswitch located top right side behind door. All 3 switches need to be actived simutainiously with the power one. When installing the brewer, be sure that the microswitch activator slide on the back of the brew group itself is in the up position.
Note: if you do not know what I was talking about(microswitches) best not to attempt

This was written by Bansheracer. it will help. If after trying you cannot get it to work, you will have to take it in to the nearest dealer to get it reprogrammed.
Remove the dredge drawer. Open the right side door. On the left side and towards the back of the brew group, there is a single screw. Remove the screw. Grab the handle and pull carefully, but firmly. The brew group should come out. There is a piece that remains in the machine. Slide the piece down and to the right and it will come off. Insert the piece into the hole on the backside of the brew group with the clip up. Tighten the screw and move brew group back into position. If your brew group did not come out please give us a call.
To return the brew group to the centered position, you first need to drop the funnel. To do this look on the opposite side of the brew group from the handle. At the top you will see an object that looks like a sharks fin. If you follow this piece down you will see 2 horizontal bars on the brew group body. Push your finger between these 2 bars and the funnel will drop. Now you can push the puck slide on the left side down and to the center. If you look down through the funnel you should see a piston. This should be centered in the funnel. If not just push the slide to the right until it does. Push the press button and you are now ready to reinsert the brew group in to the machine. First you must close the door and turn on the machine without having the brew group in. You will hear the motor turn on and when it stops completely, open the door and insert the brew group.

How do i use cleaning powder

Hi Dont use the cleaning powder yet. Remove the group head shower and clean it with steel wool, then clean the group head where the shower sits with sfeel wool. Remove the filter fron the group handle and clean the under side. Also clean the group handle before you put the filter back in. You shouldn't use powder in these machines, but if you do, you need to put a blind filter (filter with no holes in it)in the group handle. If you dont have a blind filter, you can use foil to cover your filter. When you have done that, you need to add a 1/4 teaspoon of powder into the foil covered basket and lock the handle in the group head. Switch the coffee button on for a few seconds then off again.Domt take handle out yet. Repeat this on/off proceedure 5 or 6 times. Now remove the handle and flush out any powder that is left. Leaving the foil in place, lock the handle back into the group head and repeat the above proceedure. This fushes out any powder residue. Make a coffee and discard. Now your machine has bee back flushed. Again, i do not recomend using powder in these machines. The poder can back flow into the boiler. Just make sure you give it a good flush. If you clean your group head and shower weekly, you'll never need to use powder. Dazza COFFEE MACHINE TECHNICIAN

How can i reset de saeco odea giro plus ? I can not place the central unit because the axes or spindle is not in the right position.

Turn off the machine. Open the side panel, remove the dreg tray, remove the dreg box and remove the brew group. reinsert the dreg box without the tray. Using a flat head screw driver insert lightly into the slot where the brew group sensor is until you hear a click. Hold the screw driver in place while closing the side door and turning it on. The head will re-align. Now open the side panel, remove the box and reassemble. Leave the machine off for an hour and turn back on. That should reset it.

Brew group will not go back in.

I have solved this problem many times...
First remove steam knob by depressing small clip on shaft of knob and pulling the knob out...gently. Note where the dials in the bean tank are set to, you will have to position these knobs to the same position upon reassembly.
Remove the 2 bean tank screws and remove the bean tank.
Remove the 2 screws holding on the top cover.
Lift the top cover off enough to get to the circuit board.
Unplug one of the 3 wire connectors along the top of the circuit board, turn the machine on and it will start to turn the splined shaft.
At the 180 degree point turn the machine off.
If it does not cycle through to 180 degrees then try the other 3 wire plug... one of them will be the right one.
Put the brew group back into the machine and reassemble.
This repair will take you less than 10 mins. from start to finish.

Brew group/dump box


If you open the door, start the machine, take a screwdriver in the hole lokated in the left lower side and a other in the hole lokated in the right top corner. Now should the machine do her selftest and go back to start positions.
