Question about Saeco Talea Touch 14-Cup Coffee Maker

Saeco talea touch - grinds & brews coffee into grounds drawer??

Took out brew group to clean & inserted as per instructions but now coffee doesn't get dispensed. Instead soggy ground coffee ends up in grounds drawer & coffee leaks out everywhere (from under the coffee grounds drawer)??
I have followed all instructions from the manual, ie - lubricating the brew group & making sure all components are in their correct positions but have had no luck in solving this problem!
Had no problems prior to removing the brew group to clean it.

    Coffee filter is very difficult to clean. Grounds stick to filter

Try this, adjust the grind to a coarser setting atleast 2 numbers, then remove brew unit and look behind at white plastic valve, there is a small chamber under valve make sure chamber is clean and that the small discharge from chamber to drain tray is also clear. Then remove shower screen from brew unit and clean if necessary, also check the tube from the shower. Reinsert and test.

The brew group pops off after a cycle. the lever on the bottom gets stuck and doesn't move across to produce the "puck"

a.) Group get of is place when it is not clear and and there is big pressure.
b.) Behind the group there is a switch that stops group motor when group reach the end.When that switch (micro switch) is not working correct the motor doesn't stop at the end and the pressure pulls it out.

I have a Saeco Talea. It does not rinse and error message is prime water system. Please advise the required process. Thanks.

i think i worked this one out it is the switch where the brew group is when you put the brew group in the slot it goes into there is a switch and it can be moved which is bad because the gears won't work and position the boiler nozzle in the right place and water poors out everywhere you need to pull it apart and reposition the switch i did this 3 weeks ago and haven't had a problem i figured that i couldn't break it any more lol Download the download is the instructions on pulling it apart or just search for talea touch repair manual and download it you need to pull the brew group section apart if you move the gears make sure you have them lined up the right way when you put it back together it was relatively easy i really hope this helps :)

I have a Saeco Odea Go and my puck in the dreg drawer are really wet and I have water leaking (brown so with coffee) under the dreg drawer. how I can fix it ?

I recently had this problem. I throughly cleaned and lubricated the brew group as directed by the manual. Apparently if the brew group doesn't move smoothly enough it won't grind the correct amount of beans. Try lubricating and then brewing 2-3 cups to have the machine recalibrate the grind amount.

The tap in many of the Talea ring models is a dodgy plastic thing. It breaks pretty easily. You can replace them (with a more sturdy metal one that they use these days) but getting the cover off is pretty tricky. Best to get a service guy to do it

First remove brew unit and clean the shower screen that is under the red gasket, then adjust the grind about 2 numbers coarser, then try making a coffee, if you have the same problem then the steam valve needs to be replaced.

Dispensing Failed- Saeco Talea Ring Plus

Try adjusting the grind four numbers coarser and brew a coffee, if you are getting the same result then the brew unit is clogged and the screen needs to be cleaned.
