Question about Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
I have a Hotpoint HCM15 and I constantly have an issue where it grinds the beans but doesn't dispense the coffee itself - this doesn't happen all the time bit seem to be having this issue more times than not. I have tried cleaning, rinsing etc but doesn't seem to make any difference.
When my grinder does this it is usually a Hard Bean stuck in the grinding wheels. I adjust the grind setting to min and max and it normally clears.

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.

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.
