I have Phillips Saeco xsmall machine. Coffee was ok at first. Then it started making VERY weak coffee.

1-just descaled the machine(see manual,use citric acid, NEVER vinegar)
2-The reason could be the piston is not moving all the way down. Try pushing it down with your thumb and you will see if this is the problem or not. To repair you have to lubricate piston's shaft really well (with food-grade silicone grease or vaseline) so it moves up and down easily. You can try using an artist's brush to reach the shaft, but if it doesn't work you will have to disassemble the mechanism. If the piston won't go all the way down, not enough coffee will fit in the cylinder and the pill will be soft. Also lots of coffee will end up freely floating inside your machine.

What is the best lubricant to use on my dewalt hammer drills please

It depends to where you want to apply your lubricant.
If you want to lubricate the chuck with the sds drill bit you simply add some cheap grease on the drill bit and the drill bit will slide easily on the chuck. On the other hand if you want to lubricate the sds drill machine then there is a special type super grease that you can buy from Dewalt in order to do so. Also since in order the super grease to be needed this means that you have used the drill a lot then also is needed to change o-rings, brushes and so on. So usually you have to ask for a service center to do it since they know how to do it properly and using the right kit.

I need descaling tablets and machine lubricant grease. How can I purchase these items? sells the descaling tablets as well as the cleaning tablets, Miele brand. Search on "Miele tablets" for example. Third party (non Miele) tablets are available but you might not want to risk using those in your $3K machine. If you search on "food grade grease" you can find a small tube of it that sells for about $8.

Brewunit blocked

Have you ever cleaned and lubricated the brew group?

You remove the tray and set it aside - then push to the right the plastic bar that says "press" and pull out the brew group. It comes out as a complete unit. You can rinse it under the sink - turn it over and rinse off the filter disk and rinse off any coffee grinds that may be stuck all over in the mechanism. Do not use detergent, do not put in the dishwasher. Just rinse it off really well.

The mechanism should be lubricated with food safe lubricant after about 500 coffees. There are two sets of tracks that are the main thing to lubricate. You can get the food safe silicon grease at any of the espresso shops like wholelattelove or seatle coffee gear etc. etc.

If the brew group moves freely after you have cleaned it, you need to make sure it is the home position - the round well with the black plastic shower screen at the bottom should be centered under the funnel that the coffee grinds drop into - and on the front face, below the "press" bar there is a round bushing with two arrows that show be pointing at each other showing that it is lined up in home position ready to be reinserted into the machine.

The brew unit is not tamping the ground coffe properly.

Give the brew unit a good wash,then lube all the moving parts with food grade grease.
If you are able dismantle the brew unit and wash in warm soapy water,this removes coffee and any old lubricant.

I had this error message on my machine and was able to take care of it by lubricating the brew unit with silicone. I small tube of silicone grease should have come with your machine. If not I found silicone grease at Aco Hardware (not in a tube) and applied it using a toothpick. Machine has been working great since.
