Question about Solis Master 5000 Espresso Machine
You can adjust the dosage setting on this machine. The factory setting is 7gms, but this can be increased with a little trick. I found that if I increase the dosage setting but use a coarser grind (say 8-10) works best. So how to increase the dosage? First you will need to remove the bean hopper (after removing beans) by taking out the 2 screws inside. At this point you can see the dosage lever approximately an inch to the left of the grinder near the front (using a flashlight). Then open the front door on the machine (remove sleeve on steamer to open fully) and remove the brew group and you will see two square holes toward the right - the one near to you is the one we need. Get a screwdriver or something similar and put it through the hole...if you look from the top into the bean hopper you should be able to see it coming up next to the dosage lever. The trick is to push the dosage lever up from the bottom with the screwdriver and using your fingers from the top move the lever to the right (I wouldn't put it on the highest dosage - recipe for disaster long term). There you are, I think the maximum setting is 14gms. Then adjust the grind fineness to around 9.

First try adjusting the grind atleast 2 numbers coarser, then run two shots for trial, if that does not fix the problem then remove the brew unit and find the screen and clean screen and tube on unit.
