Re: Stops Mid Brew Cycle - Saeco Magic De Luxe
I would try to reprogram the button. Push and hold the button. Keep it held down while it is grinding. Don't release the button until you have the desired amount in your cup for that button. When you do, Then release the button. See if that doesn't clear the problem.

Open the door on the right. The brew unit is the thing with the handle that has the push on it. You need to push on the upper left side of the brew unit until it clicks. There is an outlet spout on the opposite side of where you are pushing. It goes into an intake port that needs to be lubed, so the outlet spout will slide in without pushing back. That should take care of the missing brew unit.
Check the connection to the boiler from the pump, there is no water going to the boiler. Try this test, remove the brew unit you will see a white plastic valve behind it, carefully lift the small lever on the valve(HOT WATER), if water sprays, then the problen is at the brew unit, if no water then the boiler inlet or outlet is clogged.
Hi You have a micro switch on the doser that is in need of a replacement. It is a special micro switch that is just for the doser. It is very sensitive. If the micro switch is not activated the grinder will run until it times out, but the coffee will fill the brew unit and that could break the brew drive.
If you could brewer coffee or get hot water out of the steam wand then it could be the one way valve on the bottom of the water tank. If you are running the pump output into a glass then it is probably scaled up in the boiler.
Brew group light is lighting. Could be a number of things....
Machine may need to be primed. Try turning on the steam valve and let some water threw. See if that helps.
If you can't get the brew drive out, its jammed. You could try unplugging it for about a day, and then plugging it in, sometimes it will reset it self. Else it has to be brought back in, should take 5 minutes to do.
It could also be the descaler light popped on. hold down the steam button and it may turn off.
It could also be a sensor that wasn't put back properly.
Its hard to really say, the light diagnostic system for magic's isn't the best.
Sounds like dosage is too high and grind is too fine.
Rule of thumb with any saeco unit.
Do not grind any finer then 2 or your looking for trouble.
Open grinder, clean it out with a vac. Slapped it back on.
The reason it stops is grind is too fine, and the machine doesn't have enough pressure to pass threw the grinds, creates back pressure in the machine and the unit failsafes after a certain amount of time with and pressure.
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.
