Saeco Easy - Chamber clogging with coffee

I've owned a Saeco Easy for 5 months with no problem at all. Recently I've had a problem similar to ones I've read on the site here. The advice from espressodoc was great - I pulled down the trap door and found coffee in the chamber, cleaned it out, things seemed to work again. However, after only two more coffees it jammed again, and when I checked the chamber was full of coffee again. Each time I clean it out it works again but I can't figure out why it's not clogging all the time. I've just recently switched to an oily bean - is it possible that the machine won't work well with all bean types? Thanks for the help. Mike

Re: Saeco Easy - Chamber clogging with coffee

After quite a bit of digging (not a lot of information out there on this), I found a handful of others who said that oily beans will cause this problem. Sorry I can't give you better news on that. If you do wish to try a new bean though, you might want to check out this site: The satisfaction guarantee is legitimate, and this is the only place I know where you can actually find out the roast date of your order (though you have to ask, he's happy to let you know).

Saeco taleo grounds are very wet - almost fluid! this hase started recently when i changed my beans. i have changed the grind to course but with no effect. any ideas?

Try adjusting the amount of coffee and then the grind to finer. If there is not enough coffee in the chamber then it gets over extracted and you get a soupy puck at discharge, if the grind is too coarse, you might also get the same result. Think of your coffee grind as rocks and sand and that will give you a better feel for the proper setting for your machine.

My saeco incanto doesnt dispense coffee any more only water comes out of the dispenser :( please helppppp ,it was working fine an hour ago then suddenly i start getting only water instead off coffee , P.S...

Check the coffee dregs are they wet? Or are they even there?
If there are no dregs then the grinder chamber is clogged and needs to be cleared out, remove the brew unit and you can gain access to the chamber on the left. Clean the chamber.

Saeco Vienna Deluxe leaking problem and grinder problem

I would repair it, it sounds like the grinder needs to be adjusted (burrs may be dull), and the leak on the bottom may be coming from the small drain hole on the back of the brew chamber. If you remo;ve the chamber you will see the white water valve that the chamber connect to, if you look below the white valve the small chamber in there will be filled with water, below that there is a small discharge use a stit stick or paper clip to clear hole.

Saeco Easy

I think I have the solution. The "thwok, thwok, thwok" noise is a solenoid opening and then slamming the trap door that dispenses the coffee. Mine had a similar problem.
Upon removing the top, I found that the solenoid, and further that the mount where it attaches to the plastic frame was broken. Basically, the little plastic fin that should hold the lower flange of the solenoid was sheared off. That left the solenoid free to move, and made it impossible to complete the action to move the dispenser trap door.
It looked like there was no easy way to replace that part of the plastic mount, so I epoxied and zip-tied the solenoid into place. It seemed to do the trick. I doubt it will last forever.

Saeco Easy dispenses first, then grinds


I think you have pre-brewing on your machine, if you have a Sirius then you have these settings in the menu under coffee settings.

I don´t think this is on Saeco Easy, only if you will make two cup of coffee, then the machine will pre-grind the beans for the second cup.

Try to descale your machine, if there are calcium in the boiler then the coffee will have wrong temperature and tast bad.

Saeco De Luxe Coarse Grind

You could have knocked it out of its shaft or worse, Cracked the shaft itself.

Settings could be off too, It fairly common. Recheck the chamber, and make sure the plastic casing isn't cracked and the grinder doesn't wabble at all. It should be fairly firm.

If it isn't firm, bad news, cracked shaft.
