Question about Bosch Benvenuto B30 Espresso/Coffee Maker
Posted by Anonymous on
You have accidentally turned down the brew strength selector, on front of unit just above "clean" and "descale" buttons. Dial it the the maximum. Will grind longer, make more grounds, larger puck, stronger coffee. Or this dial is broken/ wire broken etc. u can disassemble per some other posts on here and check wire connections. I did all that then realized someone had just turned it down. So I turned it to maximum strength and problem fixed.

The cleaning program is different from the descaling program.
The machine is now wanting you to descale the machine. Get some descaling powder or tablets, desolve in water and let the machine run through the descale program.

SOURCE: Cleaning tablets?
I would just use a mixture of 1/4 water to 3/4 parts white vinegar. Run this through and then follow up with 2 plain water flushes. This will dissolve the deposits and it won't hurt you if any is left in the system.

On the bottom of the sliding spout assembly is a little tab (remove tray and look w/mirror). Once you depress that with a knife/fingernail/screwdriver, you can pry the cover of that assembly toward you on the bottom. Insert a screwdriver in the resulting slot on the side and carefully slide it up; the curved plastic cover with "BOSCH" on it will pop off. Don't worry, it's pretty flexible PVC.
Now pull on another (newly visible) tab on the bottom of the assembly (use mirror again) to disengage the entire spout mechanism (two black cylinders) which will then hang toward you by the coffee tube only. Carefully disconnect the coffee tube. Now you can wash them out (I do that every 6 months or so).
Best results: Hold one tube and the middle drainhole shut with your fingers and blow water hard into the outflow side of the other one (over the sink, of course). Repeat on other side. Soak unit in hot water w/soap, clean w/high flow, dry. Your view into the unit from the bottom (where the coffee normally comes out) should be unobstructed except for the PVC cross inside the tube.
Everything snaps back together very easily. The hardest part is connecting the coffee tube again, especially if you have big hands...
While you're at it, open the side panel below the bypass doser. On the brew group you can see three little plastic covers that, once pried off with a knife, reveal three 1/4 turn screws marked with an open and closed key symbol. Opening them will enable you to slide the brew group out and give it a good cleaning.
Take a vacuum cleaner with the narrowest attachment and vacuum all the loose coffee grounds out of the machine. Clean the inside as much as you can. Do not reassemble until the brew group is dry, otherwise the wet spots become caked with coffee.
Unscrew the steaming wand by loosening with a coin or knife on the bottom. It disassembles into a rubber holder, the metal wand, and the plastic frothing piece. Soak all three in a glass of hot water with soap. On the frothing piece there are two notches as well as a tiny hole that I usually have to clear with a knife tip. Insert a soapy Q-tip up into the pipe on the machine and "roto-root" it. Repeat with clean/wet Q-tip. If the outside of that pipe is dirty, tie a hot wet paper tower to it for 1/2 hr to soak it off. A Scotchbrite pad or steel wool will do the rest. If you maintain it this way every two weeks or so, it will never get caked up and you'll always have great foam.
Bosch factory support and local support is questionable, so I clean mine every 6 months or so, now that I know how to do it...

Testimonial: "Thanks a million for sparing your time and knowledge, your very detailed help has been invaluable"
SOURCE: Beans are too oily
This fixes almost all the "beans will not feed or beans will not grind"
problems caused by coffee bean dust packed in the burrs. Oily beans
cause this problem more fequently.
a. Pour all the beans out the top.
b. Open the settings up all the way and see what else can be poured out. Use your shop vacuum to **** grounds out the spout and backward out the bean bin.
c. Pour in some instant rice and start grinding. Reduce the grind to a small setting like six and then open the settings all the way again. (The grinder will not start at a low setting with the rice in it. If you let it stop, open the settings to about 16 before trying to restart.)
d. Pour out the rice and vacuum out the ground rice.
e. Adjust the grinder to your favorite setting and try a coffee grind. Grind until most of the rice dust is expelled (any remaining trace of rice dust will not affect the flavor of the coffee).
