Question about Solis Maestro Electric Burr Grinder

1 Answer

Grind size too big even when it is set to finest

My solia Maestro can not give me the grind size for espresso, compared to another grinder Sunbeam 0480 which I have been using for one and a half year and if I set it to the finest it will stop the flow of water so it is that fine, however with the Maestro even set to finest the shot is still coming out very fast, I chcked and it was not under dose or tamped to soft. How can I fix that? thanks

Have you used it for awhile already? You might want to try replacing the burrs ($20) if they've been used for a few years.

Generally, this is not a problem with the machine but with how you're loading the coffee! Sounds typical of one of these problems:-

Not enough coffee in the basket
Coffee should be filled and tamped to about 3mm below the rim.
Coffee grind not fine enough (too coarse)
Do you grind your own coffee or buy ready-ground? If buying ready-ground, make sure it is for espresso (fine) and not for filter or plunger.
If you have your own grinder, (like the Sunbeam Conical Grinder), then make sure the coffee hopper on top is securely connected to the grinder. I'd been using mine for years on the the finest grind (1) not realising the hopper wan't on right. Only discovered it when I took it apart to clean. Now my grinder is on 9-10 to grind for espresso.
Coffee not tampered down hard enough
You do need to provide a reasonable degree of pressure to tamp he coffee down just right.
Group head not turned tight enough
Push the group handle as far to the right as it will go, then ease it back just a fraction to have the right pressure.

How to reset the grinder burrs?


I took the grinder apart and found to have to replace the two metal grinding tools (inside cone and outside ring.
The parts for it were quite cheap. Just get yourself a proper instruction how to do it and follow it religiously. There are marks left by Jura engineers to calibrate the grinder assembly. Changing the actual grinder bits inside does not alter these if put together in the same position. The calibration is essential for a decent taste. After 7 years I would recommend a full service anyway. This will not be cheap, but all seals get replaced or just the brewing unit and the machine will be physically cleaned inside. Only a clean machine will give a decent taste. And the usual cleaning and de-scaling you can do is not enough to maintain a squeaky clean machine over the period of a few 1000 cups of coffee.

We have a sunbeam cafe series coffee machine that is 2 years old but suddenly under extracts on the pour and cannot reach the extraction pressure we are used to. We grind our own beans as well.

Hi i have a grinder problem with my Saeco Odea Go


Try this remove all the beans using a vac cleaner, then turn to lowest-finest number, then remove screws on grinder lift chamber and turn knob to coarsest setting and reassemble and try machine, remember to adjust grind when machine is grinding.

My machine is grinding the coffee ok, but it is not tamping the grind into tight rounds. Consequently the coffee is weak and the discarded coffee which is deposited into the dregs draw is loose. I have had...


First, have you tried adjusting the grinder to the finest setting, if yes and you still have the same problem the grinder needs adjustment, either the burrs are dull or the grinder needs to be set.

Hi,

If you take of the bean hopper and the adjustment pin, then you can turn the outer ring clockwise 4 step.

Check also that the ring not is loose.

Coffee watery


Setting your dose at max and grinder at finest is not good. This means that you are asking the machine to grind coffee really fine, and then dose maximun amount which can lead to the grinder getting clogged. If you are looking for stronger coffee, it is best to have several shots that one that has too much coffe and too fine. For stronger espresso, use less water instead of more coffee. Two shots of 2 oz. espresso (made with 7 grams of coffee) are more flavorful & sweeter than one shot of 4-oz. espresso made with 14 grams of coffee which could clog your grinder and door/channel. At this point, you need to clean the grinder ( inlcuding the door/channel). I suggest you have an Authorized SAECO Service Center check your machine. Contact Saeco USA Inc. to located a Service Center near you at 800-933-7876 (toll-free), ask for customer support, or contact SAECO via e-mail at : outlet@saeco-usa.com

Get it serviced. Probably a grinder motor issue.

1 would be the finest. I wouldn't recommend going under 2 though.

You risk clogging your grinder and machine under 2. There's also a dosage control when you open the door on the side. + means a bigger dosage or puck.

Hope this helps.
