Question about Saeco Magic De Luxe Espresso Machine
I have a Magic Delux that is 12+ years old and I've replaced just about everything in it, except maybe the brew group drive motor (but that is my present problem). love the machine, but it's only running because I know how to fix these things.
You say you cleaned the machine well. did any water by chance run over the front, where the keys are? one time I spilled here and it shorted out my control board, which then had to be replaced.
those are the symptoms, basically nothing works, since the brains are dead.
Will the pump still put out water when you open the steam valve?
If so, that's a good sign, but still doesn't mean your board isn't fried.
If you decide to fix it, be careful to know how things go back together. Mark all of the connectors going to the logic board (14 or so) with the J# on the circuit board, so you know where they go back.
Take off the cover to get inside, then remove the control board and inspect it for any dark areas, which is where it has overheated or shorted. this is a good sign that it's dead, but it can also be dead with no marks. they are very expensive to replace. I've replaced mine 2x so far.
if you decide to junk the machine, I'd pay for shipping to get the parts, which would help me keep mine alive. email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
good luck, stephen
