Make sure you not get any water in the grinder, if you got water in the grinder then you have to clean it.

You can try to set grinding to coarse and try to make 3 cup of coffee.

SOURCE: Saeco Incanto S-Class Sirius coffee machine not sensing beans.

I have had the same problem the only way I could get it to brew would to use the program quantity feature every time. I was going to take it in today and decided to restore the factory settings and now its working like it should. This seems to be a circuit board issue Ouch! I have another issue with the steam, if I take the knob off it works if I don't it doesn't glad I bought a 2K model GRRRRR!

Machine says refill bean but its filled

Hello Penny McEwan,

After two lifetimes in electronics... my highly sophisticated electronic background says ...

Get a clean paper sack.

Unplug you unit... and invert the MACHINE pouring the beans into the sack... While holding the machine in that position fetch it a good smack (one on the north side & another on it's south end).

Set the machine back down... like you mean it (good little bump to loosen any coffee bits)... pour the beans back into the hopper...

Plug the little beauty back in and
you should be ready to brew

Else ... get a clean paper sack... (blah blah... blah)
empty it ... smack it... vacuum it out (try again)

Take it to your repair shop!

As for me... after two life times: I still have all the toys...
all put away... nice & clean on the shelf...

I boil 12 cups in a 3 quart pot...shut off the fire and dump in the fresh ground beans let the froth settle (about 5 to 10 minutes)
and pour my first cups through an old fashion Melitta #6
(un-bleached) filter into a 10 cup Melina pot ...
or Chemex carafe

Better than a FRENCH PRESS... camp-fire style without
DRINKING the grounds...

Adjusting the flavor by varying my dark roast between
ITALIAN & FRENCH... with a half mix of PEETS
(Major Dickason's) whole bean... Yum...!!

Big, bold and just like a great big chewy CABERNET
Sauvignon... (CAN'T SEE THROUGH IT).

Never ever leave it on the heat...!
(use the microwave to reheat... or just try ice coffee).

Filter & all goes into the compost

Costco sized cups, bags & 55 gallon drums (of course)

Hope this helps!

My Coffee machine Delonghi doing expresso without foam today. Before doing good expresso with foam. help please.

Espresso should have crema not foam, foam is air added to coffee, like Starbucks does. Issue lays in the grinder and coffee quality. Recommend using Italian espresso bean like Miscela d Oro

Brand new machine. coffee beans are loaded. when trying to make coffee the machine says the beans are empty. thanks

This machine doesn't like oily beans. Your best bet is to buy freshly roasted beans that are roasted to a FC or FC+. Viena, French and Italian roast beans won't work well. Also any beans that you buy at the grocery store will be quite old (often 3 months past roasting date) and they tend to be very oily on the outside.

If you have a coffee stirring stick or a chopstick, lift the cover of the bean hopper and stir the beans and sort of poke them down in the center - that's where the beans stick and can't drop down into the grinding burrs.

If you use oily beans you will need to stir every time or every other time you make a cup. Fresh roasted beans at a slightly lighter roast will work fine.

Hardly any crema is it my coffee italian bean or can i fix this by adjusting the machine?

Try adjusting the grind finer, if that does not work, try another coffee and if you get the same result then the burrs on the grinder need to be replaced.

The coffe grinder smell burn after usage. Is there a way to clean it.

You should check you manual for directions as to how to take the machine apart to clean it because it needs regular cleaning. Since you have not cleaned it in a while, the beans are probably getting super hot and burning inside the grinder because of friction. Also, this particular machine operates best with a drier (less oily)coffee bean... think Italian expresso beans. These drier beans should work better with this machine.

Vev Vigano Carioca Nero Espresso Maker..what kind of grind to use

Use fine grind for espresso, darker roasted bean blend on Italian roast style are better, they are stronger and oily, perfect for expresso machines like this.

One of the best available here is this: Lavazza Qualita Rossa Ground Coffee, great brew on Moka style espresso machines.

Incanto-classic coffee beans do not flow to grinder

The machine automatically stir the beans since the blade make vibration and doing that shake the bean all around.Make sure the the tank is half full so the weight will help on that.If the container is almost empty the bean will fly around and don`t get in the grinder.Back up the machine to the original factory grinding and try to adjust again the wheel

The coffee is never strong enough

Be sure to use a very fine grind of a true Italian Roast espresso bean, and don't be afraid to tamp or pack the coffee a bit. Also, you don't want to overheat the pot...a low flame (or setting on your electric stove) will work best.
