Question about Saeco Easy Espresso Machine

2 Answers

Saeco Easy My Saeco Easy espressio machine recently started grinding coffee for about 10 secs and then the red light comes on.  No water, no coffee.  Seems like the ground coffee is getting stuck in the little chute that connects to the brew group. Please help.  I had to drink an instant coffee this morning.  It was disgusting.  Woe is me...

    Exact same problem - coffe grinds BUT nothing comes out. Cleaned out every visible component in case something was clogged. No luck.

    Hi,

    Schnorkie again. I ended up taking my machine for repairs. They said it needed a new sensor that tells the machine when it has ground enough coffee. It cost me $100 (ouch) but the machine has worked fine now for 2 months.

I think I have the solution. The "thwok, thwok, thwok" noise is a solenoid opening and then slamming the trap door that dispenses the coffee. Mine had a similar problem.
Upon removing the top, I found that the solenoid, and further that the mount where it attaches to the plastic frame was broken. Basically, the little plastic fin that should hold the lower flange of the solenoid was sheared off. That left the solenoid free to move, and made it impossible to complete the action to move the dispenser trap door.
It looked like there was no easy way to replace that part of the plastic mount, so I epoxied and zip-tied the solenoid into place. It seemed to do the trick. I doubt it will last forever.

OK, you can just press the big button again and it should continue the grind and make a cup. If it doesn't, then open the machine and remove the catcher tray, then take out the big grey grinder thingy. Sometimes a load of coffee is stuck in the chute. Wipe it out with a paper towel. Also check the feed tube that fills the grey grinder. Coffee can get stuck if any moisture has entered the grinder.

Saeco Incanto Rondo right red light is on and I cannot make coffee. The machine grinds the beans but does not dispense any coffee.


Try to set the machine to grind finer. Common problem with this machine when the grinder grinds too coarse, and the coffee will not fit in the brew unit during the cycle. Grinding finer will allow the brew unit to compress and the machine should complete the cycle.

If this does not work there may be another thing to try, Let me know support@cerinicoffee.com

Hi Natasja, try pull out the driptray and dreg draw while the machine is on and wait about 10 secs. When the red light start flashing, put the parts back. The red light should dissappear. Good luck.

Hi
More than likely your grind is to fine and you are using oily beans (shiney). There is a small knob in the bean hopper. turn it down to the minus side. Turn the big knob to the # 18. If that doesn't work you are going to have to take the grinder apart and clean it.

Seaco Easy wont work/Warning light blinking always


Try descaling the machine. If there is no water getting to the brew unit then it might be blocked, if you checked the brew unit then the blockage might be at the boiler or one of the lines.

Hi Andrew,

Sorry for the delay, i´m on sick-list and have not access to computer regulary.

Make sure you not get any damp into the grinder.
Try to grind little more coarse to see if the machine will grind the beans.

Have a nice day
