Tip & How-To about Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines

Does not make espresso Superautomatic

3 things
1. Dumps the grounds dry. = Dosage lever or knob is to the max. Reduce by 1 click.
2. Dumps wet and pumps runs for a few seconds. = Needs to be programed. Hold coffee button until it starts to dispense liquid but only when it gets to the amount you want for that button, release the button.
3. Dumps wet and pump runs for 1 minute, then ventilate comes on. = Blockage in the brew head (needs to be taken apart and cleaned) or bent gate valve on injector nozzle (replace gate valve).

Seams that my saeco incanto deluxe has a problem with the brew group possibly the boiler the grounds come out dry. If I do a rinse cycle the water still flows help? How do I clean the boiler?


Hi
Dosage lever or knob (small knob in the bean hopper) is to the max positive and the brew unit can not compress the coffee, so the machine dumps it into the dredge drawer to prevent breaking the machine. Reduce the amount by 1 click back from the full positive, and that should take care of the problem. Another thing that can cause this is the grind is too coarse or the grinder has come apart. The grinds should look like coarse sugar.
PS. It will usually work if the brew unit is clean, but when it is used once it will go back to dumping dry grounds.

After grinding, no coffee comes out, it stops pumping water. The grinds are wet and hot tho'


First try adjusting the grind atleast 2 numbers coarser, then run two shots for trial, if that does not fix the problem then remove the brew unit and find the screen and clean screen and tube on unit.
