I think the motor burned out on my coffee grinder.It's the same as a Saeco burr grinder. I live in Tustin, CA. Does anyone know of any small appliance repair shops? I can only find major appliance repair shops online. Thanks!

SOURCE: Coffee beans will not grind

If the grinder is blocked try changing the grinder setting up to the coarsest setting (I think it is numbered 16 on this model) and then vacuum or fill with beans and push them through. Be sure that any damp coffee has gone as you don't want the grinder blades to be left wet.

Never freeze or refrigerate your coffee beans as the condensation from doing this can also block your grinder. Also never use coffees that have been flavoured during the roasting process as they are often too sticky or oily and will block your grinder. These coffees should be ground using a grinder that can be easily pulled apart for cleaning...which is not the case in the Saeco automatic machines.

After you have finished clearing your grinder you will want to turn it back down to a finer setting ( a setting of 6 or 7 works well on this model) however you should only turn the grinder setting finer while the machine is actaully grinding. Otherwise you may find the coffee beans jam between the blades.

If you are unable to clear the blockage it might need to go to a technician.

SOURCE: My Saeco won't grind the beans

There's moisture in the grinder & it's clogged - just dismantle the grinder & clean it, then ensure you don't splash water into the bean hopper when you fill the water tank.

SOURCE: Saeco Incanto power loss.

You either have two things i think, my first thought is a leak.
The two most usall leaks on a incanto is either from the boiler or the steamvalve.

alitle more long shot is a defective fuse on the bioler.

SOURCE: Starbucks Barista Burr Grinder (Solis 166) motor does not run

Remove bean hopper
Remove grounds hopper
Remove timer knob on the side
Turn the grinder upside down
There are 4 slits on the outside edge.
Insert a screw driver into the **** and pry gently outward with a
little downward pressure on the outside until the side slips a bit.
Repeat on all 4 slits and the shell should slide off.
There is a fuse on the side of the motor that will blow and stop the motor. It is a thermal fuse and should be replaced by a qualified tech.

My Saeco Odea Go coffee machine grinder screw rotates with on beans but does not rotate when beans are added. Motor sounds like its working.

There are different possibilities for your problem. First the motor might be damaged and is more weak than before that is why is stop when it need to grind beans. In this case only with replacement motor can solve the problem.

Second probably due to long use of oily coffee or low quality coffee beans or other reason there are coffee grounded in the grinder that become like rubber and does not leave the new coffee to pass through grinding burrs. For this either you have to dismantle the whole grinder and its burrs and clean them with brush or you can use a new magic product that you can fin in eBay it can clean automatically the grinder in 30 second see it at the link

You can try the above fist and you may solve the problem in minutes if not then you can proceed with the replacement of the ginder burrs or motor.

How do I remove the coffee grinder from a Gaggia Titanium?

Please use the link for the illustrated guide. This guide is good for several identical models (Saeco Incznto line, Easy, Vspresso; Starbucks Italia, Italia Digital, Gaggia Titanium, Syncrony Compact and Compact digital models). These instructions are for models with Conical burr grinders (not for models with Ceramic burr grinders.
Use it carefully. Make your own notes and take pictures as well.

I took my Starbucks Barista Conical Burr Grinder apart to clean it, and now I cannot seem to get the top burr back on. This is an old model, purchased in 2000, and has been running great. I used to manage...

I think when you fix the front burr then you need to loose the middle screw. Then it will fix easily.
But don't run it right away.gently tighten the screw and tight until you feel some tightness .Then start the grinder and tighten or loose it according to your grinding specification
please rate me

Starbucks barista burr grinder: the motor runs but the beans won't grind

The drive mechanism from the motor to the burrs has failed in some way. It is necessary to disassemble the machine down to the basic components to determine the fault. Good luck!

My Barista Burr Coffee Grinder suddenly grinds too fine.

If it is any consolation, mine just did the same thing, now takes too long to grind and it is way to fine dispite a thorough cleaning by disassembly.

Defect Saeco Odea Giro. Red exclamation flashing fast. Mashine is function only in service mode. A defect in Saeco Odea Giro. TYP 0310R ser. number. 9007SA40523803 Please help for repairing the machine. I bought the automatic coffee machine second hand. After unpacking, I discovered that someone was intruding into it cracked plastics and handles. By common check, I discovered the 1st fault - a broken piston catalog number 11003468. This is quite a common fault with these machines. 2nd defect leakage of the valve. Even one O ring was missing. I replaced all O-rings with new ones. Then I went over to check the individual sensors: Level sensor in the tank - OK Sensor closed coffee bean hopper - OK Sensor of closed door on the brewing unit side. - OK Sensor on the waste container - okay When I wanted to try switching on a microswitch that detects the presence of the brewing unit in the hole, I did not find contact. So I removed the wall behind the brewing unit and found that there were two microswitches near the toothed wheel. I checked their functionality. Both well. I assumed that one of them was not at his destination. The one with the green connector I supposed to indicate that the brewing unit is in place. I moved him to the top. I checked the state of the electric motor and lubricated the gear. I returned the wall back. Next, I ran the diagnostic mode and checked other components: a Boiler - Heats up b The pump - presses correctly and the green diode flashes during its operation and shows the activity of the flowmeter c solenoid valve - switches correctly d the grinder grinds and during its operation the green diode flashes and reveals the activity of the speed sensor in the mill e the brewing unit is moved to the top position and to the basic position without any problems Other things I've done: The whole coffee maker is cleaned, deep decontamination is performed using the diagnostic mode. Check the flow meter clean without oxidation. Check the tightness of all hoses. Both boiler thermostats are checked. Removed and thoroughly cleaned the mill. Despite this, the machine behaves as follows: Turn on the machine and fne the mill shaft. The red exclamation mark flashes very quickly. The green light of the boiler heating is not lit or flashing. However, the boiler is heating up properly. When I eject the tank water flow, the red exclamator lights up permanently. After the tank returns, the red exclamation mark will flash rapidly again and the green indicator the boiler is heated will light up properly. When switched on, the Indycatter does not light the cup. Only a drop of water drops and coffee beans lit up. Can not prepare coffee, can not refuel hot water. All this can only be done in diagnostic mode. In the diagnostic mode, I also de-aerated the machine. Both the nozzle and the coffee outlet through the brewing unit. Self-cleaning will not start. I do not know anymore, maybe there is a bug in the electronic panel. Will anyone advise me? Thank you.
