Question about Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
For the last two weeks, the grounds have been very wet and spilling into the machine. There is no longer a solid puck anymore, but only muddy grounds. I have tried coarser (and finer) grind settings, various beans to water ratios, and multiple brands of beans. They have made virtually no difference. On top of the brew group, there is a flapper that ejects the spent grounds into the disposal. Ever since the grounds have been so wet, a lot of the muddy stuff sticks to the brew group, and some of it gets pushed in the opposite direction when the flapper swings back, spilling into the machine. I am comfortable replacing or repairing parts, but am trying to avoid replacing the wrong thing. I have made one prior repair to this machine, when the ball of the pump got stuck in the nozzle months ago.

You say " I am getting a weak brew because of not being able to adust the grind to more coarse with the adjustment knob in the bean hopper" By making it more coarse you are making it weaker. Unless you just wrote it wrong. To make it stronger you should lower the grinder number to a smaller number. Usually about 4-6. Be sure you have the grinder grinding when you move it to a lower number. The pump noise could be that in shipping your pump came loose from it's mount. Nothing you can do without sending it to a Authorized Saeco Repair shop.

Try adjusting the grind four numbers coarser and brew a coffee, if you are getting the same result then the brew unit is clogged and the screen needs to be cleaned.

I had the same problem. I filled everything up and closed it then took the hopper top and placed a small magnet that fit the circumference of the hopper sensor (I took one off of a refrigerator magnet and it fit down into the sensor) and it immediately went green. Hope it works for you.

Remove the brew unit and check the screen under the red o-ring, find the 2 screws above the top piston and make sure the chamber that leads out to the tube is clear.
