    Took care of the problem myself-I threw the damn thing out the window! Kidding, however I did follow the exploded parts view very carefully and patiently to disassemble the machine and found a bit of metal jammed in the grinder assembly. The thing seems to be working fine now, thanks.

I'll explain how to in general, you have to work out the rest...first remove 3 screws on the coffee container...and 3 again underneath.To remove the sides..undo 6 T10 screws on RH side and 3 on LH.Then pull the front knob off and remove the coffee spout.Remove the top cover.Check the grinder whether itis accessible from the top ,if not remove 5 phyllips screws that hold the top half.Lift up and pull the grinder out. Good luck!

The grinder is the problem. Inside the grinder is a white gearwheel. Change the gearwheel (cheapest way) or change the grinder and reset all errors from service menu.

Saeco Primea Cappuccino must be reset I recive error mesage : error 1 I replaced grinder with a new one but the error message remained on screen and do not know how to reset

Hi,Ive just recieved an email saying that your having some problems with your machine. Its hard to keep up with all the error codes on the hundreds of machines on the market. Faulty grinder usually dont give an error code. The grinder will just not work if its faulty, which tells me theres a problem with grinder. If your showing an error 1, i'd be looking at the steam heating circuit. Faulty thermoblock, thermostat, solenoid, etc. Anyway, something has led you to replacing the grinder, so ill see if I can help. Some machines need to be told that it has been fixed, which is done through the programming. You know when you go in to the cleaning program, thats where it may have to be told. The grinder also has other electrical sensors which maybe at fault. On one of the wires that connect to the grinder is a little square thing that sits in a holder on the grinder. It maybe faulty.(not common fault that part). The machine will usually reset itself when you turn it off at the main toggel switch, and unplug it from the power point. When you turn the machine back on, it will do a self dianostic before it starts to heat. but as I said before, the grinder usually isn't part of the self dionostic on start up. If you turn it back on and error code comes back up, id be looking at thermoblocks or thermostats. If your still having troubles, give me more details on how the machines full operation is working. If the grinder is at fault, everything else should be working. Thanks Darryn

Saeco Primea Touch Plus flow problem

In the bean hopoer there is a little screw. Remove this screw and the cover and you will see an adjustment alan key. You need to push down and rotate the adjuster counter clockwise to make it finer and clockwise to make it bigger. Make sure you only rotate the grinder a little at a time, 1/4 turns at a time recommended. Make 2 cups then readjust if necessary.

Check your grinder to see if the grinds may be too fine. Increase the grinder size and see if the coffee speed is increased.

If not, Contact saeco usa for support at 800-933-7876.
