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 a fair amount of 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!!
The gel is food safe lubricant. Leave it on the brew unit. It keeps the machine from squeaking while brewing and keeps the brew unit motor from becoming too strained. Click on the link below to see a short video on the lubricating process.
