The Saeco Vienna Plus is a great, relatively inexpensive (especially refurbished) automatic espresso machine! After 6 months I started to have a problem where the bean grinding step would time out after grinding and grinding. This led to compacted grounds and a clogged grounds chute -- the immediate fix was to open up and clean out the grinder. This distracted me for a long time from real troubleshooting and determining the true root cause of the problem. It turns out that the dosing microswitch was getting stuck / gummed up after sitting still from morning to morning.
