I purchased a used Cimbali M29 Select that needed a little maintenance. I went in to change the filters and ran into a problem trying to remove, the screw is stripped and I have tried everything I can. I don't want to damage any additional parts. I know how expensive a tech can be..any suggestions?

From your description it sound that the button strip need to be replaced. All the buttons of the coffees and also for hot water are all set in one unit the button strip. This like a membrane and is located under the buttons. This is frequent problem with m29 select since the connector of the button strip it is exposed under the cup warmer area and is very easy to absorb the humidity from steam escape inside the machine and when one short circuit it happens then since the whole strip is one unit it will mull faction as you described.
Keep press smoothly the ceter button stop for more than 10 sec. You will hear a sound and lights bliping. now fill the filter with coffee and press the button you want to program and keep it press untill you will have the required dose in then cup. Now the dose is set. you can program all other buttons in the same way. after you finish you can press once the stop buttong again. The machine is been programed and ready to be used. You can reprogram any button you want again following the same prosedure. Good luck. Rememebr to vote for this answer
The price for the m29 select new is about 5500 to 6000. So for one of 4-5 years you can give about 2500-3000. However I sugest to open the machine and check if their are rusting points or any leaking points which propably be white points from calcium color. Also ask if their were any water filter like everpure or and a water softener conected to water supply of machine during the operation of the machines.
If you see minor points as above and the water was treated before entering the machine then your machine can work for minimum another 10 years.
Water calcium (scale) is the biger enemy of the machine.
