Two questions:
1- Is the coffee grounds wet or dry?
2- Does the spout drip water when the machine is just heating up?
If the grounds are dry then the brew chamber is not getting any water. Turn machine off, let it cool down, then remove brew unit. Behind the brew unit there is a white valve with 2 red o-rings(sometimes black), if you look closely there is a small lever between the o-rings, get a small screwdriver and gently lift lever and spring, if water came out then the problem is in the brew unit, unscrew the stainless steel screen which is under the large red O-ring on the brew unit and clean, also make sure the tube on the unit is clear.
If the hot water spout is not dripping when the machine is heating up then you're good.

When you press the coffee button the machine grinds the beans, but then the water comes out the steam wand... please help


The problem is a very frequent one a small scale part have been moved and it stack to the water steam valve and it blocking it from closing completely. So when you make coffee the hose of water for coffee is in parallel with hot water steam wand and since the valve remains partially opened the water for coffee find easy escape from steam wand.

So we suggest to perform one more descale and it may need twice hopefully this small scale part to be dissolve a little bit more in order to pass thought the steam valve and thus the valve can close again completely. If you are not so lucky the part remain on the valve then only solution is to disassemble the machine thus clean the steam valve manually. In this solution you may find out that the valve o ring might be damage and thus the leak.
here is the link with steam valve parts and this the parts diagram of the machine and here many more for your machine

On my Manifica which is about 5 years old I get the message that the ground is too fine and to adjust it when I am trying to froth the milk. I have cleaned it, adjusted it , taken all the beans out and it...


Hi


A grind that is too fine will result in your espresso being too bitter. Rinse between shots because the infuser clogs easily with black espresso muck. Not rinsing will cause the machine to shut down with a message that the "grind is too fine".
Try removing the beans from the hopper and use a vacuum to CLEAR/REMOVE any grounds and then adjust the grinder 4 clicks clockwise. Try turning the grinding regulator 1 click clockwise and see if that works.If not try inserting the water spout press the ok button and then run water a few seconds.
If you remove the water tank too early while it is making coffee it will display that message as well.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.
Thank you for contacting fixya.com

Hi Bill
What happens when you do a tea ? (hot water only, NOT the steam button) do you also get little water ?
The fact that you are getting steam is good as there are 2 heating systems in the unit.
Have you ran the descaling recently (if you do not use filter ) ?
If you have or use a filter the problem is likely to be at the rear of the machine, however the back contents all the power and you will need to be happy to do some stripping down of the machine,
In the back you have the pump, valves, heater etc.
I am just about to draw up a flow chart of the water system inside the machine and have it published online (couple of days).
Are you happy to strip machine down ?

Saeco Odea Go - Hot water leaks from bottom of machine


That's leaking from the hoses coming out from the boiler,if the machine is new it should be still under warranty, may have to take it back to the service center.When making coffee the lines are under pressure and the water never have a chance to pass through the ground coffee.

I have a saeco Talea Giro machine. When I press the button to make coffee, the beans grind but no coffee comes out, but raher the water comes out of the steam spout. What is the solution


Check the screen on the brew unit, it might be blocked. If the brew unit is cleaned and the problem is still happening then the steam valve needs to be rebuilt because the pins are allowing the water pressure to pass through.

Miele CVA610 error reads expel air but when we do as manual suggests (run hot water & milk frother) no water comes out.


- Make sure that the filled water container is in the appliance.


- Turn the program selector to "On" with lighting and place a container under the hot water spout and another

under the steam spout.


- Press the hot water button, turn the steam selector counterclockwise and dispense hot water until it flows in

quiet, continuous streams.


- Press the hot water button again.

Turn the steam selector clockwise to o, to turn off the water.


If this doesn't do it for you, you are doing it wrong!

No coffee is coming out of the machine...


in our machine we wanted a stronger coffee so we adjusted the auto grinder (where the coffee beans are housed) to the finest setting thinking the finer the grind the stronger the coffee...after doing this the machine wouldnot make coffee...we sent it away while still under warranty and the tech said that the grind selection was too low so they just turned the grinder back up a notch and it worked fine ....dont know if this will help but it's worth a try!

Water but no coffee


Your grinder needs cleaning- are you using oily beans and/or storing beans in refrig/freezer. Both are a problem for grinder. Also, grinder should not be set to "fine"- it will definitely cause clogging and the situation you point out.. After celaning grinder, will need to re-set it.

Water does not get to main compartment

No coffee comes out from the coffe machine


The grind may be too fine. The Brew unit is plugged and needs service. The spout joining the boiler to the brew unit is broken. The unit may be plugged with scale.
