SOURCE: clogged

The burrs need to kept clean otherwise it will create a lot of dust and jam it up. This is aggravated with oil coffee and flavored coffee. Thoroughly clean the burrs and chute.

SOURCE: all of sudden my grinder plugs up. coffee settles

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).

SOURCE: Oily beans seem to have clogged our coffee grinder

Rotate the bean hopper counter clockwise until it stops. Lift it off. Remove the outer burr with the 2 wings and clean under the burr. Clean the opening going to the chute for ground coffee(inside where the burr was).
Install the outer burr. Install the bean hopper. Rotate the bean hopper to the French press grind (coarsest) and operate the grinder. This will clean the burrs and the passages. If it starts to clog, repeat the last part to clean the burrs and passage. It must be grinding to go to a finer setting, but you can go to a coarser setting any time. Another thing. Turn the grinder upside down (empty) and rotate the bean hopper back and forth to clean the threads of the adjusting burr..

My Saeco Xsmall stops before brewing the coffee


1- The grind fineness setting is too fine. Pump is not able to pump through the compacted coffee grounds.

2- The machine is not descaled. The Calcium deposits in the hydraulic system have reduced the pump pressure. The partially clogged water passages can generate a back pressure to reduce pumping pressure. Was the machine descaled in the past two or three moths? If yes, what was the descaling product used?
3- The pump may be air locked and not able to pump water.
4- Oily beans may have been used. Oily beans are poison for the all fully automatic espresso machines. This clogs the grinding chamber or the grinder outlet. This model is made in Romania made in 2006 or after. This machine has a Ceramic Burr grinder 2006 which is a huge problem to clean adjust beans quantity per shot of espresso etc. etc. Occasionally it will dump dry coffee grounds when the quantity of beans powder is insufficient.

Based on the above details, you can figure out what is wrong and fix it. See the exploded parts diagram included, for help. Services Unlimited Inc Parts Guru Since 1988

I have a saeco royal my machine is grinding beans but will not stop


Your question is not right.
Grinder stops on its own in 16 to 18 seconds (times out).
It may not be grinding beans an spinning free because the beans are not feeding.
You may have used oily beans or set the grind fineness at very fine powder like. This powder like fineness also clogs the grinder..
You need to clean the grinding chamber and the ground coffee outlet.

What would cause the machine to grind the beans but not produce any coffee despite the water tank being full?


Your grinder setting might be too fine. Only adjust while the grinder is grinding -- set to a coarser grind. Have you tried the preground coffee dispenser? Again, use coarser ground coffee in case the sieve is getting clogged.

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.

Talea ring the grinder will not stop gringing


The Talea model is with a Ceramic grinder system. This can happen when the grinder outlet is clogged with coffee grounds. Fresh beans cannot enter the grinder as the outlet is clogged. Remember, the grinder in any machine is a grinder. It does not shovel the coffee grounds out and clean the outlet when it is clogged.
1- Check if the grind setting is too fine (powder like). If so change the setting to coarse. Fully automatic machines do not need fine grind. Keep the grind fineness like the table slat grain.
2- Check if the beans are dark roast and oily. Oily beans are a slow poison for any fully automatic machine. Change the beans to Non oily medium roast type.

I have the saeco vienna coffee machine and lately it does not make a good coffee, it looks more like tea. I have the setting set to the strongest coffee and I also notice that the coffee grounds are really...


You can remove top panel and find the grinder.
Remove the limit lock screw and udjust in more fine grinding manualy. So now you can have more fine grinding.
Remeber that you have to move only two step at a time, then make coffee and then move again to more fine, this will avoid blocking the grinder and also burning the grinder motor.
Also before doing the above you can ckeck the grinding burrs if they are in good condition or they need to be replaced.

It is says fill the beans even if the are full, snd dont make a coffee


Your grinder is probably clogged with fine powder. Set the grinder adjustment to a coarser grist, and see if this pushes out packed coffee from the grinder. Open the lid for preground coffee and clean out the outlet from the grinder.

It is the tamper in the brew unit that feels if there`s enough coffee before brewing. If this gets to far down during tamping, it will send a message to the mainboard that there`s not enough coffee, and the message Fill Beans will appear.

Long time for drip coffee.


Grinder is set to too fine. Lower grinder settings. Keeping the machine at current settings with drip extraction will result in brew group clogging, gear stripping, and/or dulling of grinder burrs.
