I would try cleaning out your coffee grinder first.

Grinder needs to be adjusted or it popped out of its shaft.

Grinding the coffee too fine or the grinder backing up will cause tension between the upper burr and the grind shaft casing.

Once this happens 9 times out of 10 it will relieve pressure by popping itself out of the shafting or worse yet, cracking the shaft itself.

If you open the side of the machine where the brew drive is and you see grinds all over the place, there's a good chance that's what happened.

Needs to be sent out for repair.

Hi
Sounds like your drain is getting plugged with coffee residue. Remove your brew unit. There is an injector that has 2 orange o-rings in it in the back. That pocket below it is filling with water. There is a drain that is to the bottom left that goes into the drip tray in front. Use a prob of some kind that is about 12" long that you can stick down and forward in the drain pocket. Work it towards the fron and you should open the drain again. it fills with oils, so use some hot sudzy water and clean it out.

Saeco incanto del luxe coffee machine dumps coffee into waste drawer


Your brew unit may be set in the wrong position inside the machine if someone has had it out to clean or try to fix. The unit has two positions open and neutral when putting back into the machine it should be neutral. This is something I would try first. Now if it is in the open position you will need to reset it. Resetting is better explained on video so I have put a link for a Youtube video. This guy is great and guides you through step by step. Hope this works for you good luck. Please post and let me know.
Cheers

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.

'dregdrawer full' message but not disappearing when emptying it


HI Are you leaving the machine on when you empty the dredge drawer? There has to be power for the computer to see that the dredge drawer has been removed. Leave it out at least 15 seconds, so the computer thinks you emptied it. This should clear the message.

The brew unit cannot be removed. The unit has stopped in the wrong position. i have closed the door and switch on the machine several times but nothing happened.


HI
The drip tray and dredge drawer has to be in and make sure that the dredge drawer has the tab in back to activate the microswitch in back. If that doesn't fix it I will need more information.

How do i empty the dregdrawer on a saeco incanto de luxe? I am seeing the DREGDRAWER FULL message and cannot get out of it.


When you want to empty the grounds because it says to in the menu, REMEMBER TO LEAVE THE MACHINE ON when you remove the drawer. The machine is a counter and when it reaches the magic number for that machine the message comes on. If the machine is turned off when you pull the drawer out, the machine doesn't know this and the message will be there when you turn the machine back on. Also remember to leave the drawer out for at least 15 seconds or a little longer so the machine thinks you actually dumped the grounds.

Hi
What does you grind look like?
Is it very coarse or does it look like grandulated sugar? If its very coarse like French press, your grinder has seperated and needs to be replaced.

Saeco Incanto Deluxe brewunit jammed


Remove the dredge drawer. Open the door. On the left side of the brewing unit, and towards the back of the brew group, there is a single screw. Remove the screw. Grab the handle and pull carefully, but firmly with a quick ****. The brew group should come out. There is a piece that remains in the machine. Slide that piece down and to the right and it will come off. Insert the piece into the hole on the backside of the brew group with the clip up. Tighten the screw and move brew group back into position.
To return the brew group to the centered position, you first need to drop the funnel. To do this, look on the opposite side of the brew group from the handle. At the top you will see an object that looks like a sharks fin. If you follow this piece down you will see 2 horizontal bars on the brew group body. Push your finger between these 2 bars and the funnel will drop. Now you can push the puck slide on the left side down and to the center. (You can insert your key into the hole in the front and twist the key to return the brew unit to the center. Line up the 2 diamonds and it centered) If you look down through the funnel you should see a piston. This should be centered in the funnel. If not, locate the slide on the left side of the brew unit,(it should be hanging down, a flat rectangular piece attached to the cylinder) and push the slide to the right until it does. Push the press button and you are now ready to reinsert the brew group in to the machine. First you must close the door and turn on the machine without having the brew group in, but you must have your drip tray and dredge drawer in. Turn the machine on. You will hear the motor turn on and when it stops completely, open the door and remove the tray, now insert the brew group and replace the tray.
