SOURCE: Grind is too coarse and "pucks" are wet and fall apart.

You say " I am getting a weak brew because of not being able to adust the grind to more coarse with the adjustment knob in the bean hopper" By making it more coarse you are making it weaker. Unless you just wrote it wrong. To make it stronger you should lower the grinder number to a smaller number. Usually about 4-6. Be sure you have the grinder grinding when you move it to a lower number. The pump noise could be that in shipping your pump came loose from it's mount. Nothing you can do without sending it to a Authorized Saeco Repair shop.

SOURCE: Saeco Italia coffee too weak - grindes too coarse

Remove beans from chamber, then remove the 2-3 screws in the chamber, then lift hopper slightly and turn adjustment knob towards the middle number, or halfway between fine and coarse. Then lower hopper make sure the gears line up together, set screws add beans and adjust finer.

SOURCE: Coffee machine Delonghi Magnifica grinding function not working

There are two reasons for this usually. Either the grinder is jammed or the grinding wheel or wheels have broken. Your machine needs to go to a repair shop to be looked at.

The new grind and brew DGB-550 doesn't grind the beans fine enough and it produces a VERY WEAK coffee. The beans are all ground, they are very coarse.


Did you read the instructions to see if you can alter the grind?

If there is no setting, then you would need to either contact the company direct, or take it back for refund as 'not fit for purpose sold'..

Lets do this, remove the bean hopper, and make sure there are no beans in the burr chamber. Then looking down at the collar with the numbers back up screw if there is one on it. Now if memory serves me right clockwise is coarse and counter is fine. Look down in the burr chamber, notice the nut in the middle, turn it with your fingers that will move the bottom burr, if burr turns freely we will move on if not plug in grinder and let it grind out remaining beans. With beans gone unplug grinder, then turn collar towards fine until you cannot go no more, now try turning nut it will be hard if not impossible to move, turn collar towards coarse until you can barely move bottom burr with fingers, you will hear and feel the burrs touching, that will be our bottom setting. Now pick a spot on the grinder you can use the small notch in the middle, count out 16 notches towards coarse and turn collar to that point. Use the notches around the collar not the ones on the top next to the numbers. Your grind should be almost perfect, depending on blend and machine you might have to adjust 1 notch to the left or right after testing.

Machine says beans are empty and will not brew.


Try adjusting the grinder coarser when it is running. Either the grind is too fine or the grinds chamber is blocked, remove the brew unit and check the gate to the grinder on the inside right.

Coffee is not strong enough?


Hi
There are 2 knobs in the bean hopper. Turn the small one to the + then back up 1 click. Turn the large knob to a smaller number, but only when it is grinding. The grind should look like coarse granulated sugar. It takes 3 cycles for the grind to take effect.

The machine says FILL BEANS but beans are in it...yes, we did run out of beans but now it won't recognize beans. we cleaned it out, grinded , etc...but it still says fill beans. We also rinsed many times,...


Hi
Oily beans (shiny) can some times stick together after grinding with a fine setting. Try opening the grinder setting to the very coarsest setting and see if it will clear the passage. If you have pushed the brew button an lot of times you may have packed the grounds in the passage which will have to cleaned manually.
Once you have the grinder working again, open it to the coarsest setting to clean the burrs. 1 time is enough. To turn the grind setting back down to your setting make sure that the grinder is running at that time. You can open to a coarse setting any time but it has to be running to finer.

You don't say whether your using ground coffee or beans if using beans chek that no one has altered the grind adjustment on the bean hopper. If using ground coffee it could be that the grind is too coarse not allowing the machine to extract the coffee.

Saeco magic comfort coffee machine grinder


Hi,

Make sure you not get any water in the grinder, if you got water in the grinder then you have to clean it.

You can try to set grinding to coarse and try to make 3 cup of coffee.

Water Problem


You might have a grinder issue. If the coffee is being ground too thin or too coarse it may cause an issue and no coffee will dispense. Here is the link to the grinder cleaning instructions: http://www.cerinicoffee.com/Saeco_technical_documents.asp
