SOURCE: No grinding of the beans nor not making coffe

Yes! and I hope it helps you. There is a small metal shaft that you can see when you take off the bean grinding unit alot of times with repeated use the shaft will stick from small coffee dust particals and condensation buildup which forms a sticky substance on the inner shaft! get a small pair of pliers and grip the shaft and Turn clockwise 1 full turn, this may unstick it! unplug unit for five min then try again You may want to oil the shaft with some good high grade oil! if this does not work the grinding motor may be burnt out and needs replaced! also check your settings! please rate
THANK YOU!

SOURCE: grinding coffee but water not making coffee

Check to make sure the quantity button has not been reprogrammed. To do so, push and hold the coffee button until coffee flows through. Also be sure to check the brew-unit. In some cases if the b-unit is plugged, it will not allow water to flow through. Also check to be sure you are not grinding too fine, if coffee is too fine it too will plug the chamber...........Hope it helps.

HOW DO I CHANGE THE GRINDING MECHANISM ON MY SPIDEM TREVI EXCLUSSIVE ESPRESSO MACHINE. I HEAR THE MACHINE GRINDING BUT IT'S REALLY NOT DOING ANYTHING. ANY SUGGESTIONS


When the grinder spins free and fast it only means that fresh beans are not feeding into the burrs. This happens when:
1- Grind setting is too fine and beans cannot enter the grinder mechanism.
2- Use of oily dark roast beans can clog the ground coffee chamber and preven the fresh beans entering the grinder.
3- The ground coffee chamber outlet is clogged due to oily beans or too fine coffee setting.

When you cleaned the grinder you may not have cleaned the coffee outlet to the doser on the left. You can clean the outlet to open the passage of coffee grounds to collect in the dosing device..
After cleaning the outlet, you should next make sure that coffee grounds are not packed in the doser. The doser is inside the door right above the brew group.
To access the doser:
1- Remove water tank.
2- Remove the brew group.
3- Lay the machine on its back for full view of the doser.
4- Pull the doser door open (it is like an Attic door.
5- Keep the doser door open and clean the inside with a brush. The outlet from the grinder is on the right side with a wire wiper cleaner that moves across the grinder outlet fills from the grinder. This opening.
Use a brush to clean the doser.
On the left of the doser space there is a plastic flap that is pushed to the left when coffee grounds fill the doser.
At certain distance push back (1/4") the notch on top of the flap pushes the doser micro switch pin to stop the grinder. Push the flap gently to the left to make sure that it is moving well. With each push back of the flap, one can hear the feeble click sound from the micro switch.
When the above cleaning is done, try the grinding.
If the conical burrs have not been replaced for over 2500 grinds, it is time to do so.

The above grinder and grinder doser cleaning instructions are available as download files on the following page link:

One can find many useful maintenance guides on one page.
Good luck.

Our Saeco Vienna Superautomatica sounds like it's grinding beans but keeps running until the red 'bean' light comes on and we have to shut the machine off. Any suggestions?


The grinder is timing out and stops if the beans do not enter the grinder. This happens because:
1- The grinder outlet is clogged and fresh beans cannot pass through the burrs.
2- The grind setting is too fine and helping clogging in the grinding chamber or the ground coffee outlet.
3- Operator may have been using dark roast oily beans. Like it or not, the dark roast oily beans do not make stronger espresso. Please stop using such beans in fully automatic espresso machines.
4- The grinder has already made over 2000 grinds and the burrs are blunted and not grinding beans as needed.
To solve this malfunction, clean the grinder. Make sure the grinder outlet to the doser is cleaned. This outlet passage is about 2 inches or more. To clean it, lay the machine on its back (water tank side) to allow better view of cleaning the doser and the passage of coffee from the grinder to the doser. Use the link below to find instructions for cleaning the grinder and replace the burrs.

Its telling me that coffee beans are empty...but they are not..it makes grinding noise but the message keeps popping up beans are empty

DGB-900bc will not grind; It also does not pull the beans into the hopper to grind them. It used to make a loud grinding sound when it ground the beans, but now it makes just a dull sound, like the grinder...


I experienced the same problem after many uses. You need to pull the hopper off and clean out the path the grounds take to the filter basket. It is no doubt clogged up. I used compressed air to really clean it out good.

Good Luck

Hi there, you have some kind of blockage, If the beans are going down, you need to remove the brewer unit and wash it, if the beans arent going down the exit of the grinder is blocked and needs to be removed, cleaned and replaced

Coffee Grinder on the EAM3500


We just went through the same situation. We opened the top the Magnifica to get to the grinder and removed the four screws to seperate the grinding pieces. Inside we discovered two black fosilized beans/stones! We removed those, cleaned out all the bean dust and it is working like new! Took about an hour.

Solis Palazzo Bean Grinding


Hi,

That one with number on is finer or coarser grinding beans, the other one is for how much gram it would grind. + means more gram.

I hope this will help you.

Bean hopper is full, grinder is grinding...but NO COFFEE!


Sometimes the chamber between the grinder and brewer will clog up. Try: Open the grind all the way up to the highest number. Push the grind button and while grinding move the dose knob (the one with the + - sign toward minus. If it does not kick in and dose try it again. If it does take off then leave it on the high number for 3 coffees. Then while the grinder is turning move the two knobs back to whre they were. If this does not work you can reomve the brew unit and right above where it sits in the machine there is a trap door that you can open. Open it and shove someting like a straw up toward the grinder and you should get a bunch of grounds droppiing down. Then try the above procedure a couple more times. If this does not work you may need to google "Saeco repair" and send it to an authorized repair center.
