Question about Saeco Royal Professional Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Extra part I've owned a Saeco Royal Professional for just over a month now. Yesterday when removing the brewing unit to clean it in the sink.  After cleaning, I noticed that a small plastic part had come from somewhere and I don't know where.  It is cylindrical, 14 mm long, 12 mm in diameter with a hole in the center.  One end has a deep notch in it and has a smaller diameter than the other end.  The only place I could see that it may have come from is a cylinder on the back side of the brewing unit.  I tried it with the notch side down, but no water was able to get to the coffee.  Everything else worked fine -- coffee grinder, coffee ground dumper. I'm reluctant to try putting the mystery object in with the notch side up in case something breaks.   Any ideas? ERic

Sorry to tell you but Brew Unit Block is usually the CPU or the main board going bad. It is usually caused by a constant drag on the brew unit causing more power going to the drive motor causing the CPU and the main board to heat up weaking the CPU or main board to the failure point. To much coffee going into the brw unit and causing the brew drive motor to work harder to compress the coffee will also do the same. You will have to replace the CPU or the main board. It is usually the CPU.

My Saeco Royal Cappucino gives hard noise, when "tamping". The grind goes to waste-basket. No coffee..

There is a lever on the top of the door that has a + to the back and a - to the front. Pull the lever back 1 click to the front or - side. Your putting too much coffee in the brew unit and could break the brew drive.

The machine makes funny noises at start up then no water goes through the brew group.

The brew unit needs to be lubricated, and the shower screen needs to be cleaned.

Keeps saying "Coffee Beans Empty" - Saeco Royal Digital Plus

Either the coffee chute from the grinder is blocked, or the grind is too fine. Remove brew unit and check grinder chute.

Try this, check brew unit on it you will see a small arrow, this has to be pointing at the letter N, whisch is near the handle. Remove the drain tray and dreg tray, check the rails for the brew unit make sure there is no coffee on it, then slide unit in place.

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.

Saeco Royal Professional Coffee ends up in the bin not into the cups. What has happened and where can I go to resolve it. Thanks Mala

If you mean the Coffee Seems to end up all around your brew unit, a common fix is to move the dosage control (this is the slide on the right hand side of your machine just above the door to the brew unit) back and forth repetitivly.

Loud clicking and no coffee

Looks like your brew drive gears may be stripped. You should have a professional look at it because some must be causing the struggle to happen.
