Question about Saeco Incanto Rondo Fully Automatic Coffee Maker Black Espresso Machine

3 Answers

I have a Saeco Incanto Rondo with a grinder related problem

Hello. Im a coffee machine technician who works on commercial machines. A friend of mine has given me his machine so as to rectify a problem to do with internal grinder. Having not opened one of these units before I thought I'll have a look. The idiot put ground coffee in the chute causing the plastic blades to seize upon inspection. I disassembled the grinding unit leaving the pick up wires intact. After a couple of minutes in hot water I was finally able to pull the top blades apart from the bottom. I cleaned the complete unit along with all necessary ducts.

My problem now is that the machine starts grinding when button is depressed however it only grinds for 1-2 seconds before the right red warning lamp comes on. I assume it must be related to the grinder as my friend says it was working fine beforehand. The little bit of coffee ground actually goes into the chamber where its supposed too.

If you have a programming solution or any other thought on this machine it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

    Thanks for the reply. The grinder actually turns upon pressing the brew button but for only a few revolutions. Thus its plugged into the board. The grind looks fairly coarse. I'm almost certain that it may be the optical pickup under the grinder gear that may be faulty.

First step.If the grind is to coarse the burrs will spin to fast sensing no beans.
Solution: The grind needs to be finer. Caution you can over adjust causing the clay burrs to shatter.

If the grinder spin for a fraction of a seconds and stops, it sounds like the sensor wire is not connected properly, OR the grinder is too tight, it was sensing grinder is jammed. Try grinding without beans, it will spin for a few seconds and stopped and the redlight will come on meaning coffee beans empty.

Have you tried going to a coarser setting on the grind, adjust about 4 numbers to start.

    If that does not work, did you disconnect the wires of the grinder from the board?

Hi,

I think you have to take it to a Saeco service center, they have to upgrade your power board in the machine.

SOURCE: ave an SAECO INCANTO RONDA with milling problems.

You can turn the grinder (mill) so the plates open for a more gross coffee this will help the grinder motor to rotate more free you can use a vacume cleaner to **** all the remainig coffee inside the grinder. If still not any reaction you have to desasemble complete clean the grinding plates. If you still not have any reaction then the grinder motor burn out and need to bee replaced.

Saeco Incanto Rondo right red light is on and I cannot make coffee. The machine grinds the beans but does not dispense any coffee.


Try to set the machine to grind finer. Common problem with this machine when the grinder grinds too coarse, and the coffee will not fit in the brew unit during the cycle. Grinding finer will allow the brew unit to compress and the machine should complete the cycle.

If this does not work there may be another thing to try, Let me know support@cerinicoffee.com

Saeco machine grinder


Due to the use the grinding burrs are slightly move and wire out. So I advice you to move only one max two step to more fine coffee grinding from the one you have and try the coffee.
The test you have to do is that for about 30 cc of coffee the time that the coffee will run should be about 20 to 22 seconds. If the coffee more faster you need more fine grinding. If the coffee run more slower than 28 sec you need more gross coffee grinding.
Good luck

Saeco: grinder stops grinding


Hello, This may be the solution for you: having removed the ceramic grinder to clean out the unit, one of the wires on the grinder had become removed (the "center wire") on the connector. The 2 outside wires were sufficient to give me the illusion that the grinder was connected correctly, however it would only run for a half second and then coast to an annoying stop.

Check all 3 wires that connect to the grinder and make sure they are making contact.
