Question about Saeco Magic De Luxe Espresso Machine
We've had our Saeco Magic De Luxe for about 4-5 years and have loved it. We've come to rely on it for our coffee fix at least 3 or 4 times a day. I swear we've been really great owners and have been vigilant about descaling when it's due, along with cleaning the brew group and the grinder on the recommended schedule. Yesterday, however, it decide that it was not going to cooperate. It grinds the coffee, dumps it into the brew group but water is not getting to the brew group.
Here are the troubleshooting steps we've taken so far:
1) Descaled - although it was earlier than the recommended schedule
2) Hot water / steam comes out of the steam tube so we know the pump is working and the heater/boiler is working
3) Watched with the door open (via pushing the metal latch) while pushing the brew button to see if any water spills out on the brew group. Water never even makes it to the brew group and it ends up dumping dry, unused grounds into the dregs box so this test didn't really tell us much of anything.
4) After we try to run it in normal mode (and don't get anything) we do have to prime the circuit via opening the hot water/steam wand and WOW...does it initially pump out the water.
Bottomline, the water seems to be backed up somewhere between Point A (the tank) and Point B (the brew group).
Obviously we'd love to have a solution to this. Barring that how do you take the main case / cover off this machine for a more thorough inner inspection of the water tubes that run to the brew group from the boiler without accidentally disconnecting some other inner part?
We have contacted a local service shop and they charge $50+tax to look at it. If they can fix it that $$ goes toward the repair. We may have to go that route.
