SOURCE: Bean hopper is full, grinder is grinding...but NO COFFEE!

Sometimes the chamber between the grinder and brewer will clog up. Try: Open the grind all the way up to the highest number. Push the grind button and while grinding move the dose knob (the one with the + - sign toward minus. If it does not kick in and dose try it again. If it does take off then leave it on the high number for 3 coffees. Then while the grinder is turning move the two knobs back to whre they were. If this does not work you can reomve the brew unit and right above where it sits in the machine there is a trap door that you can open. Open it and shove someting like a straw up toward the grinder and you should get a bunch of grounds droppiing down. Then try the above procedure a couple more times. If this does not work you may need to google "Saeco repair" and send it to an authorized repair center.

SOURCE: i have a s9 avantgarde keep getting error fill bean

Seems Problem with the bean sensor. you need to get the same replaced. there are no setting that can be done manually for bean sensor.

A Jura Engineer can check the Bean sensor with his computer system and confirm if the bean sensor is faulty.

Hi my breville barista express does not grind the beans, and the "single/double" light is blinking, what is the problem?


My wife tried to make my coffee and long story short, she removed the lid to "move the beans around"..The grinder stopped working and the filter size lights began flashing intermittently. After taking the whole thing apart, the only REAL problem is that the lock mechanism inside the hopper came unlocked. So put your machine back together and "lock" the hopper. The lights will stop flashing...lets hope

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.

I have a Breville BES860XL and the grinder is not working. If i overide the interlock, It will spin, but does not have enough power to grind beans


It seems there's a fault in the grinder gearing in this particular model.There's no solution but to take it to Breville repair...
I have the same problem and so does a friend of mine. The grinder will spin without beans in the hopper but as soon as beans are introduced the grinder makes a loud noise. Like the gears are slipping and there's not enough power to grind.

My machine blinking on steam, the wand does not want t o steam, the espresso does not pour. The knob is turned on stand by , but still some steaming noise comes, but no steam comes from the wand, nor...


When it is blinking on steam it means it is preparing the unit for steam. When the steam light goes solid your unit is ready to make steam.

  • Turn from standby to steam then wait for steam light to go solid.
  • When solid steam wand will begin dribbling then spitting out water, which will then turn to steam.
  • When it begins to steam, turn back to standby. NOTE: you only have 6 seconds before steaming turns off.
  • place steaming wand in jug and turn from standby back to steam.
You will hear pumping noises when you turn off your steam, because it releases the steam and puts the excess water in to the drip tray.
  • make sure your bean hopper is properly locked in to the unit. Grinder won't work if hopper not locked in.
  • Make sure your water filter has been prepped and locked securely in to the reservoir and your reservoir is filled.
  • Use fresh beans.
  • Sounds funny but use good quality water, do not use ordinary tap water. Make sure it is filtered or use bottled water (cooler bottles).
  • Try to grind your beans to a good consistancy.
  • Breville recomends about 10kg tamping pressure, use a set of scales to check the feel.
  • Tamp to about 3-5 mm below rim of grouphead (portafilter). Or the tamp has a guide on the side, that silver side on the tamp is the tamp line. Pretty vauge about that in the book.
If all else fails go to www.breville.com.au and check your model and watch some of the vid clips.

Beans wont grind through.


Return this machine to your retailer for another. Breville has a replacement warranty. Thank goodness because we are onto our 4th machine in 7 months. Many problems. Firstly it leaked water from the front of the machine, second machine grinder wasn't adjustable so it grinded too fine for pump, same with 3rd and 4th machine. We are opting for a refund tomorrow! Good luck.

Cleaned the Solis Maestro grinder and re set it to a fine espresso setting but the grind is coming out very course. What should i do?


Hi Your burr is not locked in. You need to remove the beans from the hopper. Remove the hopper. Remove the burr. Turn the grinder upside down over the trash can. Put the burr back in only make sure that the burr is down. Install the bean hopper and when you turn the bean hopper it should move the burr. Then you can adjust your grind. Make sure that the grinder is running is your going to a finer grind or you could break the grinder. You can turn it to a coarse grind any time.

Gaggia Trevi or Spidem Trevi


You may have a legitimate mechanical malfunciton but sometimes the simple solution is the right one! The chute on this (and other) superautomatic does not like the oily residue that beans inevitably leave. All it takes it gently putting one or two fingers into the bean hopper as the grinder motor starts to sound louder/faster (this is caused by the grinder motor being under less load/strain because no beans are feeding) and wiggling for 1-2 seconds. If you do this immediately after hearing the grinder motor's rpms increase you will not get a "fill bean hopper" error message2.gif. No hard pushing is required, just a gentle wiggle. There is a shroud over the actual bottom of the hopper, so you don't want to stick your fingers beyond that. If you are concerned about actually sticking your fingers into the hopper while the grinder is running, you can simply push down on the top of the beans with gentle pressure which will in effect force the beans down and accomplish the same thing. This technique + regular cleaning of the grinder may be all you need. Hope this helps! Tony
