The coffee is being ground too fine usually. Also not cleaning the brew group and lubricating it regularly can cause this.


The gears are standard plastic and any excessive force will cause them to break. The only things that cause excessive force to gears on saeco machines is fine coffee compacting in the brew group and/or a dirty brew group that gets stuck and does not cycle properly.

Why are the used grinding pads on my saeco odeo giro very loose and watery


I can personally confirm this fix from another similar question works: "I throughly cleaned and lubricated the brew group as directed by the manual. Apparently if the brew group doesn't move smoothly enough, it won't grind the correct amount of beans. Try lubricating and then brewing 2-3 cups to have the machine recalibrate the grind amount." My manual didn't have very good info about lubricating the brew group, so I referred to some Youtube videos demonstrating the methods. A sourced a 3rd party food safe lubricant from Amazon which I applied with Q-tips, but in retrospect they also sell Saeco "maintenance kits" which would have been cheaper & easier to apply, plus it includes a new O-ring.

Hello,
Look at the brewing group where the top strainer is. The small holes are blocked with coffee. The water can not pass through them.
You will need to unfold the two screws at the top and then remove the strainer, grow and clean it and clean it if the holes are blocked.

The brew group is stuck and will not come out


I hope one of this two solutions solve your problem.

1- The brew group is out of place. Turn the machine on. Close the service door.
The brew group is automatically placed in the correct position.

2-Coffee grounds drawer is inserted. Remove the dregdrawer first, then the brew
group.

you are supposed to go through the "before first use" instructions....which include filling the resevoir with water and brewing only water until its all gone. then start using the machine normally...remembering that the machine takes a few brew cycles to adjust properly to the coffee being used (this assuming this is the giro plus model which has the feature-"aroma something or other...)

also, descaling would help and removing the brew group and rinsing it out...

Hi, I have a saeco odea giro plus that has just started to leak nearly all of the brewed coffee into the dreg drawer! Any ideas? thanks in advance...


I had a crack in the tube that connected to the brew group that resulted in a similar dumping of coffee in the dregs (and below the dreg drawer and onto the counter) in my Saeco Odea Giro. Replacing the "Saeco Odea Giro Coffee Dispensing Tube, part number 11003468, fixed my problem. You can replace this yourself if you are very handy. These photos are very helpful (The Go seems pretty similar to the Giro.) http://odeago.zxq.net/Odea_Go_Repair/Welcome.html

Cannot reinstall the brew group after cleaning.


If you can remove the brew group easily, it should go back in easily. Make sure the brew group is in neutral position(2 arrows pointed to each other) and the latch behind the unit is in the top position.

Saeco Odea Giro - Clogged and coffee come out in water tray....


This has happened to our machine that we use for our youth group. We sent it in and they said it was clogged also. Not having a clue what they meant. It happened again and I figured it out. When you remove the brew group there is a hole just above it that dispenses into the brew group. Make sure it is not clogged. Give it a try Good Luck

Gear that drives the brew group has broke for the third time odea giro


Usually gears breaking is a sign that your grinding the coffee too fine. Other possible reasons for breaking gears are a malfunction with the brew group itself. Unlubed and uncleaned brew groups are notorious for breaking the gears as well.

I recommend soaking the brew group in hot water and cafiza for a while, rinsing, and then lubing the inner chamber, side screw nut, and lower piston.

After that i recommend adjusting grinder settings lower to not place as much stress on the machine.

Most people do not understand that these home super automatic machines were never made to make authentic espresso, but an approximate of it.
