Love your 'handle'!

I'm thinking that there is something in the burr in the unit. Empty the unit and remove the burr. Usually, this is done with a counterclockwise turn. Note how hard it may be to turn...you'll have to reverse this when you put it together. Now, clean out any coffee debris you find. Then, turn the unit over and tap it on a firm surface covered with newspaper. Reassemble and return to service.

I have a 810 & 875. The 810 works flawless but the preused 875 bought off Ebay was not grinding fine enough or changing from course to turkish (finest) no matter where the grind dial setting was turned to. I completely dissassembled the burrs and cleaned it out completely. I figured out that the dial had been tampered with so I reset it by retightening the screws till it just barely moved the dial from one setting to another setting...this will make it tighten the burrs down further causing the burrs to grind finer. Be sure to download the manual and read it too as this may help you.

I cannot change the grind- have had it for 2 hours and the grind is embarrassing.....I feel sick to know I have spend $1k and it does a terrible grind


Hi, dont panic. Just takes a bit of time to get to know your new LOVE. Wish I knew what machine you have. The adjustment is on the side of the bean hopper mostly. 1 is fine and five is coarse. Start on 3 and go from there. It can take 1 to 3 shots before you get a correct gauge. you need to check the cake of the used coffee. It needs to be a solid dry paddy. Dont make the grind too fine though. Should be like coarse sand. There could also be another adjustment for the amount of coffee that gets ground up to be brewed. It will either be near the grind adjustment or it maybe a program adjustment. Good Luck. Daz

Brand new machine and the pressure gauge doesn't appear to be working, I've made about 10 coffees over the weekend and experimented with the tamping etc. And the gauge has not moved once? Am I...


It could be a faulty machine, what is your grind setting? Make sure your using the dual wall single cup as a test. Set the grind to around 13 and grind your own beans, don't use supermarket bought beans or preground coffee. Both are garbage.
Also if your using the dual wall basket, make sure that you leave the dial guage in the dual wall setting. Then tamp the coffee so it sits roughly 3-5mm below the rim, this is what I have found is best for this unit.
Then secure group head in to unit, press single cup and you should hopefully get a pressure reading, if it isn't going up you are under extracting and your grind is prob to coarse (correct me if I'm wrong), I've found 13 is not to coarse not to fine. Shouldn't feel like fine sand, when coarse but not powdery.
If the gauge does not move in to the grey area your unit is most likely faulty.

My coffee is weak. i have played with the grinder, placing it at different no. on the outside plus i have played with adjustment on the interior.


Hi
Check the grinds. If they are coarse you have a separated grinder. It usually means it needs to be replaced I have seen them on ebay, but if you can't find them, I have some. If they are not coarse, you have to make 3 coffees before the grind will take affect. After you change the grind you have to make 3 drinks before you will see a change. If you don't have a puck in your dredge drawer, you don't have enough coffee going into the brew unit. Push the lever behind the door in the center top back to the +, then forward 1 click, and try that. There should be a full puck going into the dredge drawer that has the consistency of coarse sugar. If it very coarse its the grinder.

Coffee come out fast and is weak ...


Hi
2 things can cause this.
1. the grind is too coarse. That would be the big knob in the bean hopper. Turn it down when its grinding only. From the factory it is set on 8.
2. The grinder has seperated internaly. That is a tough one to fix, as the grinder should be taken apart and cleaned, then reassembled.

Ground coffee does not come out


Try this, unplug grinder, vac out all beans, then turn grinder towards fine until you cannot turn the big nut in the center of the burr chamber with your fingers. Now turn adjuster towards coarse until you can barely move the middle nut(you should hear and feel the burs touching) now if you look around the edges of the adjustment ring you will see notches, pick a spot any spot just remember where you started, then turn 14 notches towards coarse, your grind should be almost perfect.

Saeco Incantu delux grinds bean, starts to press the ground coffee then releases unbrewed ground coffee into dredge drawer without the water cycle turning on. I have cleaned out the brew unit re-lubed...


Hi
What does you grind look like?
Is it very coarse or does it look like grandulated sugar? If its very coarse like French press, your grinder has seperated and needs to be replaced.

How can I ajust my machine the coffee is coming out weak and watery I don't get that creamy,strong coffee anymore


HI
There are more than a few things that can cause weak coffee.
Grind is too coarse. It should look like coarse sugar.
You cleaned the brew unit and left a part out or put it in incorrectly.
Grind adjustment is set too high. Turn to a lower # while the grinder is operating.
Grinder is been taken apart and not put back together correctly.
Grinder is broken and the grinds are just big chunks.

Saeco Italia coffee too weak - grindes too coarse


Remove beans from chamber, then remove the 2-3 screws in the chamber, then lift hopper slightly and turn adjustment knob towards the middle number, or halfway between fine and coarse. Then lower hopper make sure the gears line up together, set screws add beans and adjust finer.
