Hdo i remove the grinder on asaeco royal
How to remove the grinder in a Saeco Royal Professional fully automatic cappuccino machine. Of course make sure the machine is fully off and unplugged before servicing it. Taking a lot of pictures as you disassemble it will make it easier to reassemble it when you are done.
1. Remove the water tank, driptray, dregdrawer, cappuccinatore., and the bean hopper. There are two Phillips head screws in the bean hopper; you put some tissue in the hole to prevent those from falling into the machine when they come out. Once the hopper is off, remove the grind adjustment lever. It can be pried off, but try to be gentle. I broke it slightly when I did this, though it still works fine. Also, make a mark on the lever and grinder before removing it, so you can put it back together easily at the end.
2. Remove the screws holding the upper housing to the base. There are two under the water tank, one in the compartment under the bean hopper, one in the front corner above where the dregdrawer goes, and one behind the front panel under the steamer wand. They are all Phillips head screws except for the two under the water tank which are T-10 (Torx, or star) screws.
3. Remove the upper housing. This can be a little tricky, because you have to get the steam wand and cappuccinatore plug through their corresponding holes. Just start by gently prying up the front edge of the housing, under the steam wand and the control panel. Pull the housing back, bending it over the cappuccinatore plug, up over the rest of the unit, making sure the steam wand goes through smoothly. Then you'll be able to lift it off the rest of the way. Note that the hose from the water tank will still be attached to the housing, but there should be enough slack to set it out of the way.
4. At this point you can see the grinder. Remove the rubber gasket that sits between the grinder and hopper, and the felt noise dampener. The grinder is held in place by three rubber rivets. They can be tricky to dislodge, but you just have to pull firmly on the grinder to take them out one by one. You can also grab the bottom of the rivet with needle nosed pliers if you need to. To reinsert the rivets, you can push the tip through the corresponding hole and pull on the end with pliers. Try not to move the grind adjustment ring without marking where it was originally, or you may end up throwing off the grind calibration.
5. You should be able to unplug the wires from the grinder. You may need to cut the zip tie holding the wires in place.
6. Follow these steps backward to reassemble the unit once the grinder is replaced. Good luck!
