Please help me out, i am pretty new to coffee machines, but i am quite technical minded as i am an engineer by trade. i love my gaggia syncrony machine, it has been with my dad for over 2 years and with me now for 3 months, and i have a problem with the "brew unit" It really struggles to transport the ground beans to the unit and it sounds like, the mechanism of the brew unit itself is straining to move the parts, i have taken then unit out and give it a really good clean and have even tried to grease it up a little to help movement, but still to no avail, sometimes it will work for around 5 cups then just stop. any ideas on how to fix this myself? or is it possible to buy a replacement brew unit? obviously i don't want it to be too expensive. also whats the best way to clean the coffee machine? i have read about tablets that i need to put through the machine, will this help? i do reckon the machine needs a good overhaul though, can this be an expensive service? i was looking at replacing for a new gaggia at a later date and don't want to spend a fortune on a 3+ year old machine. i will appreciate any help and advice on what to do.
