Question about Saeco Classico Espresso Machine
Sounds like the handle where you put the coffee in needs replacement, if you leave the machine on for long periods with the handle on there is a metal spring inside with plastic parts that regulate the pressure in the tamping basket. 9 BAR is the desired pressure to produce crema. the plastic parts can melt and the spring looses tension. If you place the handle on, lock it, the it should shift slightly backwards on its own if you have to help it I have bad news replacement time. I have seen replacement from 25.00 - 90.00. I have two classicos and already replaced one handle and have to do the next. It could take one time of leaving the machine on all day. Good to get in habbit of turning off the machine immediately after use let it cool slowly attached to unit and clean it when you get home. Immediate cleaining in cold water could make the spring fatigue faster and also cause this problem.
If you are brave and can remember where parts were; take the three screws off where the coffee comes from handle slowly separate the parts and you will see if plastic melted, is distorted or spring is like mush.
Here is the saeco parts diagram and parts ordering site but I warn you its the most expensive

Your machine has a bad heating element and is ground out to the boiler ground. You will need to have the boiler rebuilt.
If you need service you can contact Cerini Coffee Services in New York. More information go to www.Cerinicoffee.com or go to saeco's website to find a local service center.
Hope this helps!
