Not sure it will work for you but Our Bunn has a flex wire to run thru the tube weekly , and if we do not clean that tube it might take 20 minutes to make a pot where when cleaned it does 12 cups in 3 minute
That Sounds like theres a blockage, most likely limescale has built up in the boiler. If you try descale now when water is only dribbling through, it probably wont work. Recommend strip down machine and unblock pipework and try get water flow to come back stronger, then try a descale cycle.
Coffee coming out too slow could be a number of problems.
I'd start with the grinder and make sure it is set to the right settings. If the coffee's too fine it will cause the coffee to come out slowly.
Next it could be a dirty brew group. The internal part of the brew group has a glass ball inside of it which is used to during the infusion process. Take the ball out and make sure that area is all clean.
Restrictions in that area can cause the coffee to come out slower.
Your next possible scenario is the pump. Vibratory pumps do go bad from time to time, and a bad pump would cause the coffee to come out slow.
If its a newer saeco machine with the J style boiler, it could be clogged due to lack of descaling.
Slow coffee can be caused by any one of these issues. Usually it is the first one.... the grinder settings.
A tip is to never go under the 3 setting under any saeco machine as the machines for some reason cannot handle anything lower all that well.
Also remember these machines are ment to produce an "espresso like" coffee, and not traditional espresso. They are not capable of producing espresso that you would otherwise be able to make in a traditional handle machine.
Hope this helps.
Run a 50:50 mixture of cold water and white vinegar through the machine several times. Allow the mixture to cool off after each run and use a filter to catch the debris that comes out of the heater/pump. Run clean water several times to remove the vinegar taste. This works great on our old Mr Coffee and lasts for some time before doing it again. Hope this helps!
you have to remove the "nozzle" where the water comes out. It is threaded in so it is easy to remove and re-install. Then run the wire cleaning tool right up the now exposed hole. That will clean it out. Hope I was able to help.....
