Question about Saeco Magic De Luxe Espresso Machine
I opened the grounds cup to empty it while my Saeco Magic De Luxe Espresso machine was powering up. Now something is blocking it from completely being inserted. Assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Here's the deal.
1. As you've probably learned by now, don't take anything from teh machine when its powering up and even when its going threw a brew cycle.
Here's whats happened, There's a set of microswitches that connect to the main board on the unit. One of the switches is triggered by the grounds cup.
When one of the switches is set off the unit goes into alarm and locks down.
Now to your problem. When the machine starts up its just like a brew cycle. The machine goes threw a Test mode of sorts where its checking the brew drive.
Once you pulled the ground cup, i'm almost 100% positive (its a common problem) that you set the alarm off mid cycle and jammed the brew group in place.
Since the brew group switch and the ground cup switch are so close together, it basically jams them both per say.
So basically unjam the brew drive to its original position is the only way to fix the problem.
Option 1: 2 tiny screw drivers. Turn the machine on. By the brew drive there's should be 2 holes where there's little metal clips stick out. When you press them with the screw drivers, the machine will trigger the brew drive back to the original settings.
Option 2: Flat head screw driver. where the grounds cup is there should be a little slice on the machine. turn machine on. place screwdriver there, brew drive should go threw test and then back to original position. Once everything stops, you should be good to go.
Option 3: Sent out for service. Worst case scenario.
Don't use alot of pressure as these pieces are all aluminum and plastic.
Wish ya the best of luck.
