Well, either you will have to diss-assemble the machine and clean all the dirty parts yourself, or have it taken to a shop that will do it for you.

I have turned the grind knob all the way down, below 1.


Sounds like there is not enough coffee to make a solid puck. If you get crema, grind coarseness sounds ok. A finer grind will produce less coffee grounds for the puck and increases chance of clogging.
You may have to balance grind size with amount of crema to get solid puck.
Big problem with these is you want dark roast for espresso, but oil on beans clogs grinder. Are you using a dark roast? A medium roast works better in these. Or, can you increase the grind time? My Super-auto had a program option to increase time. But not in reg instructions. Got it from authorized repair facility.

Rancilio Rocky w/ doser: clean sweep of coffee grounds


The Rancilio Rocky coffee grinder is a superb, highly recommended machine, but its doser is pretty useless in the home. First reason: you want to grind coffee instants before you brew or pull your espresso shot; otherwise, the grinds just lose aromatics and flavor. The doser only works for multiple doses, so you're better off just grinding the amount you need each time. If you're buying a Rocky, get the doserless model.

If you have the doser model, like I do, you also find that the vanes which sweep the coffee into your portafilter or cone leave a layer of grounds on the doser floor. If not cleaned out, they turn rancid. There are coffee web sites with fairly complicated instructions on how to modify the vanes to do a clean sweep. Here's the simple way:

Flip up the doser cover, and spin the vanes while pressing your finger lightly on the outer top edge of one vane. The vanes have enough play so the pressure brings one into light contact with the doser floor, sweeping 99% of the grounds into your waiting portafilter.

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.

How do I clean my burr mill (Models BMX3, BMX4, BMX5 and BMX6)?


Clean your burr mill before using it for the first time. Then, to ensure optimal mill function and durability, clean it regularly following these simple steps.
  1. Always unplug your burr mill after use and before cleaning.
  2. Open the hopper lid. Empty any whole beans from the hopper. Remove the top burr mill by rotating it clockwise. For better results hold the grind setting button while rotating the burr mill clockwise. This will allow you to clean the grinding wheel and the grinding compartment.
  3. Clean the interior recesses with a soft brush. Note: Never use water or liquid for cleaning the lower grinding section of this appliance. BRUSH NOT INCLUDED.
  4. Wipe the whole bean hopper, its lid and the mill exterior with a damp cloth.
  5. The ground coffee chamber and lid can be washed in mild detergent and water. They both are top rack dishwasher safe. Do not immerse the mill or the whole bean hopper in water or any other liquid or place in dishwasher. Use only non-abrasive cleaners to remove stains.
  6. After completely drying the whole bean hopper and top burr mill, replace the burr mill in position by aligning snaps with receptacle and rotating counterclockwise to lock it in position. For better results, hold the grind setting button while rotating the burr mill counterclockwise. Once the burr mill is in position, pull gently to check it is properly locked in position. If the burr mill comes out, repeat this step again.
  7. Replace the ground coffee chamber and lid, making sure both snap securely into place.
  8. Fill the hopper with whole beans.

My Rancilio Silvia, about three years old, does not seem to be generating sufficient pressure. Standard espresso grind requires about two minutes for a shot and coffee is bitter. Is there any way to...


First things first, remove the screw and shower in the head and clean. Then change grind to something a little coarser, since we are testing the machine we will not tamp the coffee(we are doing this to have a constant in our coffee brewing equation). Note how long it took to brew, if it brewed longer than 40 secs, then adjust grind and try again. If coffee shots looks better and taste better then we are on the right track, we are looking for any thing between 15 and 30 sec depending on the coffee blend from light to dark. If you are getting the same results over 40 secs for a shot no matter what grind you use then the pump needs to be replaced.

When washer is started make loud grinding noise


Very likely the bearings in the motor have begun to fail. You can replace the motor, but for a 15 year old DW, sometimes it makes better sense to just buy a new one. Depends on the features the old DW has, vs new, vs motor replacement cost.

Reply back and we can you more.

We Cleaned out the drain filter, it had a ninja, and coins - then we still got the error. We then pulled out the washer and cleaned to water hose, alot of **** - but then it was still making a grinding...


unfortunately if you got everything out of the pump for sure and you're still getting the grinding noise then the coins and the ninja must have broken the fins on the propeller inside the pump. That would be the only explanation....sorry it's not better news. If i had the model number i could get you a part number and close price on the pump. Good luck!!
