Question about Saeco Classico Espresso Machine
Our SAECO Classico has been behaving very randomly. The coffee is often too watery. I think the water gets heated too hot: you can feel it when you drink (indeed you can feel the temperature through the cup) and you can see that, when you prime the machine, the water is hot and steamy. What confuses me is that this behavior is somewhat random (though these days the coffee is more often than not not quite ok) AND that priming the machine a lot (by taking out quite a bit of water before making our coffee) ultimately does not seem to help: the water seems no longer to be steamy, the flow seems nice, but the coffee is still too watery and - I think - too hot. Any ideas? Do I have to bring it in somewhere for maintenance? (PS: I know the problem is not with the quality of the coffee, or the amount, or the grind... These were all the same when the machine was working just fine.) THANKS!
I am pretty sure that the thermostat that stops the heating when the temperature gets to 95 degrees Celsius needs to be replaced. Part is available on the net for about $15.00. I'd replace the other theormostat at the same time (it stops the heating when the steam function is on, around 127 degrees).

Sounds like there is something wrong with the machine. Could be the thermostats or maybe something like an internal leak that is causing the machine to overheat. It sounds to me like you need someone to take a look at it..
