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: Gaggia Syncrony does not get past the grind cycle

You hit it on the money, Jose... the grinding burrs, called the conical burr set in the manual, needs replacing. You can find it at partsguru for around $42, and armed with a standard phillips head, a larger precision phillips head, and a #10 Torx head set of screwdrivers, you can replace them yourself, saving over $300 in repair bills.

Email me for the step-by-step if you want to give it a shot.

SOURCE: Rancilio grinder does not grind fine enough for espresso

After taking the top burr off several times and rescrewing it, I finally was able to exert enough force to get it to turn a couple of extra turns. Evidently there was some oil or coffee gunk (although I could see none) that snagged the bur. Now it appears to work as before.

This is a great, service by the way. Even the process of thinking through the problem so I could post it helped me solve it.

SOURCE: wet grounds

What you see is condensed stem comming out and no water. The pump is not sucking from the tank as ther is an air bubble in suction line. Still want coffe and don't want to clean your machine??? Flick up the lever with no group in place. Steam comes first then nothing. Pump is running and - voila - water comes as air bubble is gone. (Specially the first cup , never the following ones.) Now put back the group and brew your espresso. The machine is full of scale and neds total clean - by hand./// Olev

Our Saeco Vienna Superautomatica sounds like it's grinding beans but keeps running until the red 'bean' light comes on and we have to shut the machine off. Any suggestions?


The grinder is timing out and stops if the beans do not enter the grinder. This happens because:
1- The grinder outlet is clogged and fresh beans cannot pass through the burrs.
2- The grind setting is too fine and helping clogging in the grinding chamber or the ground coffee outlet.
3- Operator may have been using dark roast oily beans. Like it or not, the dark roast oily beans do not make stronger espresso. Please stop using such beans in fully automatic espresso machines.
4- The grinder has already made over 2000 grinds and the burrs are blunted and not grinding beans as needed.
To solve this malfunction, clean the grinder. Make sure the grinder outlet to the doser is cleaned. This outlet passage is about 2 inches or more. To clean it, lay the machine on its back (water tank side) to allow better view of cleaning the doser and the passage of coffee from the grinder to the doser. Use the link below to find instructions for cleaning the grinder and replace the burrs.

Why does ground coffee not go thru shoot


If using Beans; it is set to fine and due to static it sticks - OR you have a blockage..

If you are putting ground coffee into a grinder; the static will be a bigger issue and in addition there is no weight from the beans to press the grinds into the burrs. A bean grinder is not ment to grind beans that have already been ground.

Get a better grinder and do not buy supermarket beans.

I took everything apart to give it a good cleaning and now all settings produce a very fine grind. Any thoughts?


I had the same problem with too fine a grind when I took mine completely apart to clean (including the lower burr). The solution I finally came around to was to further tighten the star-shaped screw which holds the lower burr assembly in place. I had originally just tightened it until the lower burr until the lower burr assembly started to turn with the screw, but that wasn't enough. So I held the assembly in place and tightened the screw further and I'm back to my previous grind coarseness/fineness.

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.

My super jolly mazzer grinder is switching off after only a few seconds grinding. used to grind continuously for however long i needed, now i have to turn it on 4-5 times just to get enough for one shot! ...


Most grinders, especially the larger professional models will eventually need to have the grinding wheels (set of 2) changed out. They do wear down. The grinder will struggle as the burrs on the wheel dull out. This increases the time it takes to grind coffee and puts a heavy electrical load. Burnt out switches, tripping breaker, overheating, and burnt coffee grounds on espresso size are all symptoms of a worn burr set.
It's common to find; stones, nails, jewelry, and small loose things found around coffee counters in the grinding wheels or burrs. Have a qualified operator remove all beans and hopper to check and brush out burr set. This should be done every day.
Another cause is very oily beans. Sometimes poorly roasted beans come out extremely oily which will gum up everything from the burrs, Moving parts, and electrical components. Disassembly of entire machines may be necessary.

Not fine enough grind


This model grinder won't do espresso. There is a DIY mod available online that involves disassembling the machine, and recalibrating the burrs to produce a finer grind. I did it on mine, it was definitely better, but it's not going to get you to the coveted 30 second pull for your espresso. Search on Starbucks Barista Grinder Mod. It is a great grinder otherwise, very reliable.

The machine says FILL BEANS but beans are in it...yes, we did run out of beans but now it won't recognize beans. we cleaned it out, grinded , etc...but it still says fill beans. We also rinsed many times,...


Hi
Oily beans (shiny) can some times stick together after grinding with a fine setting. Try opening the grinder setting to the very coarsest setting and see if it will clear the passage. If you have pushed the brew button an lot of times you may have packed the grounds in the passage which will have to cleaned manually.
Once you have the grinder working again, open it to the coarsest setting to clean the burrs. 1 time is enough. To turn the grind setting back down to your setting make sure that the grinder is running at that time. You can open to a coarse setting any time but it has to be running to finer.
