Tip & How-To about Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines

Superautomatic does not make espresso. Dumps dry grounds

Dosage lever or knob 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 towards the minus side, and that should take care of the problem.
PS. It will usually work if the brew unit is clean, but when it is used once it will go back to dumping.

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.

the coffee grinder makes a sound and it grinds but the ground coffee is dumped directly in dreg container instead of going through water and turn into coffee


Hi
There is a small knob in the bean hopper. It is all the way to the plus(+). Turn it back towards the minus(-) 1 mark. Then try again. It could also be the grinder is separated and is putting to large of a grind into the brew unit. When you have dry grounds dumped into the dredge drawer, it is because the brew unit can't compress it. If it is done too many times it will break the brew drive.

My Saeco magic grinds the beans, but no coffee comes out. Sometimes it makes one cup, and skips. Other times, I grind the equivalent of 8 cups of coffee without any cups of coffee coming out.


HI
When a machine grinds but doesn't make any coffee there are a couple of things.
If the grounds are wet in the dredge drawer, then you have a plugged brew head and need to clean it.
If the grounds are dumped dry into the dredge drawer, then you have an overcharge and need to adjust the dosing lever back from the full charge. On your machine it is inside the door at the top center. Pull the lever back towards the front 1 click. Then try again.
