I have a problem with my Caffeo Barista TS.
After removing my brewing unit, cleaning it and then reinserting it, the lever of the brewing unit can no longer be moved downwards.
The spring that moves the lever or makes it moveable seems to be broken, because if I take out the collecting container I can reach in and move a black round part of the brewing unit to the right and then the lever can also be moved down again.
Furthermore the brewing unit itself is already relatively difficult to put back into the machine, since some time. You have to push it in really hard to be able to push the lever down again to lock it.
When I then have the brewing unit inside, the lever down and turn on the machine, it starts to crack at a certain point. I tried to find out where the cracking came from with the flap open on the side and saw that if the brewing unit pushes the ground coffee to brew it, this silver lever in the brewing unit gets stuck somewhere and that cracks then.
Does anyone know the problem and is there a solution? Would be really grateful for any suggestions.
