I burned mine out and had to repair it by trying to grind a pound of beans. I say pulse works the best--2-4 seconds each burst. One can grind 5-10 seconds but it heats up inside and in my case, contact melted (metal) from ongoing current to motor via switch. I rigged it but would recommend staying under 10 seconds. pulsing works best in coffee grinders and food processors.
I've long ago lost the manual that came with my grinder (I actually don't remember if it even had one), but I don't think it listed grinding times. You just grind a few seconds and check, then grind a little more if it's still too coarse. Unlike a burr grinder which is adjustable, in a blade grinder the same grind time may result in different consistencies as you change beans. By now I've just learned how long to hold the button for the different beans I buy, and the first few times I try a new blend or varietal I have to adjust the time. I think you'll just need to experiment and then you'll know what works best for your tastes.
sounds like the coffee maker had a power surge. Try setting the time again.
1. Setting the Clock
When the coffeemaker is plugged in, 12:00 will
appear until you set the time.
Entering "Time Set" Mode:
To set the time, hold down either the "Hours" or
"Minutes" button until the clock begins flashing
(about 2 seconds). You are now in the "Time
Set" mode and can operate either button to
achieve the desired setting. The buttons can
be held down to scroll through the digits, or
pressed and released lightly to advance one
digit at a time.
When scrolling, the numbers will advance
slowly at first and then speed up to the rate
of about three per second. When the number
displayed approaches the desired setting,
release the button and press repeatedly to
advance one digit at a time. Be careful to make
sure that the PM indicator is on if a
PM time is desired.
Exiting "Time Set" Mode:
The "Time Set" mode can be exited in
one of two ways:
1. Press any button besides the "Hours" or
"Minutes" button. This will exit the "Time Set"
and activate the selected function.
2. Do nothing. If neither the "Hours" nor
"Minutes" button is pressed for a period
of five seconds, the "Time Set" mode will
2. Setting the Program Ti m e :
When you press the "Program Set" button,
it displays the current program time
(default time 12:00 p.m.).
Entering "Set Program Time" Mode:
Press and hold the "Program Set" button (about
2 seconds) until the green light and LCD display
begin to flash. This signals that you have entered
the "Set Program Time" mode. The desired time
can be set by pressing the "Hours" and "Minutes"
buttons to scroll forward through the digits.
Pressing and holding either button will allow you
to scroll continuously, slowly at first, and then to
accelerate to the rate of about three digits per
second. As the desired time setting approaches,
release the button and then press repeatedly to
advance one digit at a time. The coffeemaker
will start to brew at the programmed time.
The "Program" mode cannot be entered if the
c o ffeemaker is in its "brew" cycle.
Exiting "Set Program Time" Mode:
"Set Program Time" may be exited in any
of three ways:
1. Press the "Program Set" button. This will
cause the coffeemaker to revert to its
previous state. If it was OFF, it will return
to the OFF position. If "Programmed",
it will revert to this state, and so on.
This is a safety feature.
2. Press any other button (except "Hours"
or "Minutes"). "Set Program Time" will be
exited and the function of that button will
3. Do nothing. If neither the "Hours" nor
"Minutes" button is pressed for a period of
five seconds, the "Set Program Time" mode
will be exited and the programmed setting
will be in effect.
3 things can cause wet grounds.
1. You don't have enough coffee going into the brew unit. There is a lever on the right side behind the door at the top. Push it back towards the rear but not all the way. This will put more coffee in the brew unit and take up the air space so you will have less water.
2. Your grind is too coarse. Pull the lever below the bean hopper towards the front when it is grinding, to make the grinds smaller. Again less air space. Do this 1 number at a time so you dont make it too fine. Let each adjustment for 3 coffees before you make the next adjustment.
3. Your grinder has come apart and is grinding very coarse (French press). New grinder.
Hi there, I just spoke to someone at customer service. My coffee has been weak and kind of thin. We had the Superautomatica by Saceo for years and I remembered the coffee being richer. Anyway! The person suggested that I adjust the grind but slowly. So set it to the coarsest setting, brew 2-3 cups. Then put it to the 2nd-coarsest setting, brew 2-3 cups. To the third, brew 2-3 cups. To the forth, brew 2-3 cups. Etc. Until you're at the finest grind setting. Again, brew 2-3 cups. An awfully sensitive machine. It seems to have worked although the last few seconds of brewing continue to be a kind of milky colour (as opposed to a deep black coffee colour). You can, though, press the "cup" button to stop the brew. So once, it starts running milky, you can stop the cycle. I hope this helps. I know I've been struggling and cursing the machine for a while :)
HI Read the first then go to the bold letters. To program your Magic Dlx: Press and hold the steam and small espresso buttons at the same time, then push the energy saving button (top right). Water Hardness. The large coffee button programs the water hardness. Press the button once and you will have one light in the top row, left side. Press it again and you should have two lights lit. Press it three times and you have three lights lit. Four and you have four lights lit. Press it a fifth time and it goes back to one light. Each light represents your water hardness. So if you have a water hardness of 3, press it until you have three lights lit. Press the energy saver button to exit the program and save your hardness level in the machine’s computer. It will now tell you when you should descale your machine. Pre-infusion. Press the medium coffee button to activate and you should see the light come on. Press the button and turn the light off to deactivate the pre-infusion. Pre-grinding. Pre-grinding is turned on with the cup warming button. When it is lit, the pre-grinding is on. Press the button to turn it off.
Push the program button one more time - the first push allows you to set the time, the second push stores the time you have just entered, and then you have to press it one more time to make the light next to the program button light up tell it to brew at the set time.
