Best Answer:The brew group needs the lubercation; and in particular there's a kind of spindle that moves the bottom cilinder up and down that has to move freely.

I'm giving you a link to a video made wtih Gail from Seattle Coffee Gear showing how to lubricate the brew group which is common to Saeco. Most of their brew groups are the same, even after Phillips has taken a lot of Saeco over. I think you'll find that informative and instructive.

Best Answer:You can use lubricant on the brew unit of any Saeco superautomatic. We generally only use it if you're hearing a loud squealing noise while the machine is brewing, and most of the brew unit maintenance is really just cleaning the brew unit by running it under water. If you choose to use some lubricant, just a tiny amount will go a long way, so use sparingly!
