Question about Saeco Magic De Luxe Espresso Machine
This one sounds fun.
If the noise is extremely load. The gears are stripped in the gear drive behind the brew group. The gears themselves are plastic.
Bad news is it has to be sent to a service center, replacing and realigning the gears to the brew drive is extremely difficult, and i just wouldn't recommend it being fumbled with.
Even my tech, who has 10 years experience hates realigning the gears. Takes about an hour if not more.
Now...for the reason the gears stripped. Its one of 2 things, but they revolve around the same problem
A puck got stock inside the brew group, and when it made a second cup, both got lodged, and the brew group tried to force it and killed the gears.
Its either that or your coffee is ground too fine for the machine. Yes, the machine can grind it too fine. Actually, anything under 2 is not recommended because 90% of the time it leads to this problem.
I'm sorry there isn't an easier fix, its just the nature of the beast.
