Posted Wed Mar 20, 2013, 1:08pm Subject: Question on Brew Group Cleaning - Help!!
I just took out & cleaned the brew group on my saeco vienna plus for the first time, and i noticed on the bottom of it and a little on the lower sides there was some sticky gel, is that somehow from the coffee or is that just like a gel that is put in from the maker to help with lubrication or something. should i try cleaning it all off? or just leave it because it helps the machine work right. thanks!!

you want to keep it greased. if you dont your brew group will fail more often. Take note where they have the lube and relube every other week/ month, ect. you can purchase food grade lube at some hardware stores,repair places, online ,ect. I got mine from parts guru and a tube will last quite a while.
