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.

Saeco machine - only produces a small amount of coffee


Remove the brew unit and look at the top where the spout leaves the top piston(red oring) you will notice a small tube being held down with 2 screws, remove screws and carefully lift tube, and remove spring and white plastic ball(do not lose ball). Clean that chamber it will be blocked with coffee grounds. Re-assemble and try machine.

Crema light in color


Grinding coffee at a finer setting (stronger coffee) only speeds up the clogging effect it has on machinery. The finer it is the more it acts like mud. The oils in this mud cake dry up right after the water dries up (over night) and presto you have concrete! This concrete becomes to thick to clean, so cleaning with tablets has to increase dramatically if you increase the strength of the coffee. If you leave it strong clean it weekly.
Normally you clean the brew unit with cleaning tablets every time you finish descaling. That's about once every 200-250 coffees based on the water hardness you set in the electronics. If you notice changes in the coffee waterflow speed it's usually from clogging.

If you're handy get your camera. Take pictures of every step you do. Remove the brew unit. Disassemble the left top section (2 screws holding the long pipe). It compresses a 1/2" long spring. It may get away from you so be ready for it. The spring attached to a half round plastic button (valve) that looks like a rivet. Clean all brown gunk from this valve and the housing and you're creme will return. While your in the cleaning mode remove the filter and clean inside under the filter. The filter is that round stainless steel screen disc with the phillips head screw in the center.
All this is evedence that cleaning needs to be stepped up, good luck!

My brewunit is blocked


Coffee fines and mineral scale build up in the brew unit filters and also in the creme valve. The pressure to pump water through the unit fails and the flowmeter tells the electronics that no water has flowed, it in turn stops all processes and displays "brew unit blocked" message. If you're handy, call Miele tech support. The'll walk you through how to remove the drainage cup screw off the left rear of the brew unit, get the brew unit out and return the gearing to home position. It's a 50/50 chance the gears will return or you will need a service tech to pull your coffee unit out and re-sync the gears to the electronics. That's of course if they didn't break.
This blockage is is prevented only by using the cleaning tablets and descaling tablets. Both need to be used as outlined in the instruction manual.

My miele espresso maker dispenses too much water in my espresso. how do I fix this?


If you fill two esspresso cups at the same time it should be the correct size. But if it is weak, see below...
For one cup, press the small coffee button to start. Press the button again when the desired amount of espresso is in the cup to stop the flow. if it is too watery but the correct amount see below.

If the espresso is too weak push the coffee grinds slide switch inside one notch finer and make another 3 cups. If the flavor does not get strong in 3 cups then there is an anomaly happening. The brew unit upper filter has gunk clogged behind it to a point where the pressure (230psi) of hot water trying to get through the gunk pierces a small channel through only a portion of the filter screen. All the water is running through only 4 or 5 holes in the filter screen. This eddy allows hot water to pass most of the grinds without extracting flavor. It's the same as if you clogged a sink strainer then pushed the blockage off part of the strainer. The water goes around the coffee not through it. The path of least resistance.

Remove the upside down stainless steel filter on the brew unit- Remove the screw using the allen key that came with the machine. It goes through the little finger nut on the top of the brew unit. Turn it counter-clockwise (lefty loosy) and the filter will come off from underside. The area behind the filter screen has to be cleaned of any coffee residues. Also check thew creme valve. It is under spring tension accessible from the top of the brew unit by removing two screws holding the long pipe on top. be careful not to let the spring shoot out and loose the creme valve. It looks like a plastic rivet on the other end of the spring. Clean out the entire channel by rinsing. Use a pipe cleaner for dried on grinds.

Note: the finer you set the grinds the quicker it clogs the filters. Increase the use of cleaning tablets when you grind finer coffee. A clogged brew unit is almost impossible to clean even for the most handy of people and the last I checked a new brew unit is well over 200 bucks! Good luck!

Saeco Vienna No creme' and can't lessen amt. of water in shot


Hi
Have you taken apart the brew unit lately? If so you did not put it back together correctly. Sounds like you have lost the crystal ball or you installed the spring upside down, in the brew head.

Red exclamation light keeps blinking


Brew Unit is jammed. Has to be taken in to get it unjammed.

Depending on the unit it can be as easy as hitting a few microswitches at the same time to having to unscrew and disassemble the brew drive (Not a fun task).

Sorry there isn't an easier fix to it. You risk damaging the brew drive if you fiddle with it which aren't cheap to replace. Cheaper to have it unjammed by a tech.
