Grind Not Fine Enough

I have the grind setting on 0 and the dose on + but the brew is very weak and the grounds are course. Do I need to take it to a service agent?

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'..

Why does it brew weak coffee?


can depends many factors, try to grind finer coffe powder and warm well the machine before starting to brew coffee. If the grinder does not make finer coffe powder then you must contact the service, check if blades are in place before calling them...

My Saeco Magic Deluxe machine just stopped grinding. Everything else seems to be working just fine. I'm assuming it's mechanical and something simply broke but want to ask first and if something broke...


Does it sound like it is trying to grind or is it silent? Listen carefully after pressing the coffee button. If it is silent then the motor has most likely died or the thermal fuse on the motor has blown due to motor overload and overheating.
If you can hear a faint humming, then the grinder may just be blocked (or the dosing chamber located between grinder and brew unit (above brew unit) may be blocked). First try backing off the grind to the coarsest setting. Even if you can't hear the motor, it is worth backing off the grind anyway (easy to do) as you may be lucky. To clear doser, remove brew unit and look up. You shold see a curved trap door like thing that you can swing up to release or poke out stuck ground coffee.
If the machine instantly makes that 'tuka tuka' sound after hitting the coffee button (like it does when it is dumping the coffee after grinding) then the flap or micro switch in the dosing chamber is stuck. Move the dose (grind quantity) adjustment lever back and forth a few times.
If these suggestions don't help then take it to an authorised or expert repairer.

Coffee drips very slowly and descaling not helping


I had the same problem. Check and make sure your dose is not turned up too highor your grind is not set too fine? Turning the dose knob clockwise decreasesit. I have ended up with my grind set on 13 which is more coarse than averagefor the beans I'm currently using. Adjust the grind while the grinder isworking by one number and then brew 3 or 4 coffees before changing it again. Ittakes that long for the grind to be seen in the coffee. The higher the number,the coarser the grind will be. Any time you use different beans it is possiblethat you'll have to reset the grind.

Coffee is too weak


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 :)

Grind settings


The factory setting should be 8. The higher numbers are finer. The + and - knob is the doser amount, the amount of coffee in a shot dose. Average is 7 gm, the middle. The highest is 14, I think. Generally, the highest dose shouldn't be used consistently because it can cause stress on the brew group. Just brew two shots.

Coffee is coming out weak


Make sure you are not using the paper filter and the permanent filter at the same time. Make sure the chute undernetah the grind basket is clear of grounds, moisture.

Brewing stops mid cycle


Sounds like dosage is too high and grind is too fine.

Rule of thumb with any saeco unit.

Do not grind any finer then 2 or your looking for trouble.

Open grinder, clean it out with a vac. Slapped it back on.

The reason it stops is grind is too fine, and the machine doesn't have enough pressure to pass threw the grinds, creates back pressure in the machine and the unit failsafes after a certain amount of time with and pressure.

Back pressure is what blew your boiler.
