Crome over cupper or brass means some cloth between your wrench and the large nuts on E61 group. Carefully - and it opens. CLEAN and clean again! Do not open all cupplings at the same time. Take phopto on details so you get all pieces back./// Olev

I removed the brew group and it is now stuck in the remove position. I cannot replace it in the machine. The lever that says push is stuck in the pushed position


On the inner side of the brew group (The side opposite the hand grip) there is a small rectangular slider mechanism with a vertical tab that sticks out and a catch near the funnel where the ground coffee is deposited. This slider must be in the correct position in order for the brew group to be inserted properly. If this slider is in the upper position, push gently on the catch so that the slider slides downward about 5mm or 3/16 inch. (I am replying from memory - it is possible that the slider must be in the upper position to engage). This will realign the funnel slightly and release the thumb lever, allowing the brew group to be inserted.

Coffee not running thru it drips out


Brew head cleaning Magic/Royal
If you make a pre-ground shot but don't put any coffee in it, and it does the same thing you have a blockage in the brew head.
If it run normally, your grind is to fine. Push the grinder lever to a larger number. It takes 3 times to change to the new grind.
If it still dribbles, remove the brew unit (behind the door)
Holding the handle, the top left side is the brew head. There is an outlet pipe that exits the backside towards the machine (looks like an "L" pipe). 2screws hold it to the top. Remove the 2 screws while holding the manifold ("L" pipe assembly). Once they are removed, lift the l assembly off (becareful, there is an O-ring, spring and inside a crystal ball (don't loose it or your out of luck). Turn the brew unit upside down while holding the brew head in your other hand and the crystal ball should fall out. If it doesn't come out put a towel down and tap the brew unit on the towel. This should force it out.
Now remove the brew screen, by holding the screen with your finger and twisting the thumbscrew (remember thumbscrew, DON'T use the key to install the screen, use your fingers.....
Once the screen is out look at where the screen was. There are 2 holes. 1 big one in the center and a small one to the side.
With the brew unit upside down over the towel insert a paperclip into the small hole and force anything out the other side. I have gotten worms almost a 1" long from this passage. The paper clip has to go from this side to prevent damage to the seat on the other side.
Clean then reassemble. Brew unit on towel right side up. Drop the crystal ball in first. Then the spring small end first on the crystal ball.
Now the O-ring over the spring, then place the manifold on top of that with the pipe towards the machine. Insert your screws (I turn them backwards a little with a little downward pressure until they feel like they drop into the threads. They should turn down easily, if not back them up a little more ( we are trying to find the old threads) and tighten. Install screen, and tighten with your fingers. The screen just needs to be flush with the bottom of the brew head.
Run another pre-ground without the coffee and rinse it out. Do this once in a while to prevent this

I keep having to unplug the screen in the coffee press. Can I adjust the tamping pessure down?


Hi
Have you ever cleaned the brew head completely? There is a spot that will plug up. Screens will cake on the back side if they are not cleaned, but the holes don't plug up much.

Saeco Magic Roma - Steam & Water OK, no Coffee


Remove brew unit and push on bottom end shaft you will hear a snap then turn and lift small bar lever ( if you are holding unit with handle towards you it will be on the right side), this will help you see if there is an obstruction.

The brew group to my Vienna Deluxe is out of sync. I cannot get it to fit into the machine and then add the dump box for the grains. They do not fit. I do not want to force the brew group into place....


Problem: Brew group is out of sync. Brew group insertion. Brew group alignment.

Answer: Common to all Saeco superautomatics. After removing and cleaning the brew group, it will get onto the supports but will not lock into place as the gear is not aligned. With the brew group on a clean, well lit table, use a pair of chopsticks and a friend to assist. There is a small lever arm on each side that is accessible from the outside of the brew group. As the carriage slides down towards the correct position, the arms are seen 1" above the drive gear and towards the handle side of the brew group. Gently push in the lever so it slides inside of the locking bar. Both sides need to get pushed in at the same time so it helps to have a friend hold the brew group and push in one side while you pull down on the carriage and push in the other lever. The chopsticks insert into the half-moon on each side above the locking mechanism.

My cuisinartnDC2000


the stopper is mal formmed , the only way to solve this is to use a hair dryer on high aim into the lever in side the brewer where the glass would go, you should see a lever or flapper, this allows the brewed coffee to flow into and down the shoot and into the lever assy if this is not going back far enough it will leak like crazy..

Lift the lever, but nothing happen - no sound, no action...


This happened to me. If you look closely at the lever you will see that the action of lifting the lever presses in a switch that is right behind the lever on the front of the machine. This switch starts the brew pump. One of the wires connected to this switch has rattled loose and lost contact. To fix this you will have to take the top of the case (the lid) off and then use long needle nose pliers to try to grab the loose wire and re-attach it to the switch. There is not much room to manuver, but I managed to do it eventually. Unplug the machine first, of course!
