Question about Saeco Royal Professional Espresso Machine

1 Answer

The machine grinds the coffee and dumps the still dry grounds into the dregdrawer. No espresso made. I have cleaned and decalcified the machine. I got a few shots out and I'm back to the same problem -- no shots.

Hi
There is a lever at the top of the door on the right side. Pull the lever back 1 notch from the plus(+) . You are dumping too much coffee in the brew unit and it can not compress it, so it dumps it.

Coffee grounds (unused) dropped into dregdrawer tray


try to make the grinder position on 2.
And where exactly is the unused coffee-in the drawer or under the brew unit? Did you try to wash the brew unit with water-fill a box with hot water and put it into box. Leave it all night and in the morning just clean on the water and dry it.
Let me know what is result when you done it!

Dumping dry grounds and not making coffee


Dosage lever or knob is to the max positive and the brew unit can not compress the coffee, so the machine dumps it into the dredge drawer to prevent breaking the machine. Reduce the amount by 1 click back from the full positive, and that should take care of the problem. Another thing that can cause this is the grind is too coarse or the grinder has come apart. The grinds should look like coarse sugar.
PS. It will usually work if the brew unit is clean, but when it is used once it will go back to dumping dry grounds.

My Saeco magic grinds the beans, but no coffee comes out. Sometimes it makes one cup, and skips. Other times, I grind the equivalent of 8 cups of coffee without any cups of coffee coming out.


HI
When a machine grinds but doesn't make any coffee there are a couple of things.
If the grounds are wet in the dredge drawer, then you have a plugged brew head and need to clean it.
If the grounds are dumped dry into the dredge drawer, then you have an overcharge and need to adjust the dosing lever back from the full charge. On your machine it is inside the door at the top center. Pull the lever back towards the front 1 click. Then try again.

Cuisinart 12-cup grinder coffemaker all gummed up


It is endemic to this unit - condensation builds up in the grind chute, which makes the grinds stick to the walls of the chute. Decalcifying with vinegar/water helps, but only in an indirect way - by keeping the inside tubing clean, decalcifying generally allows the water to flow through the machine without obstruction. Inside tubing that has calcium, lime deposits built up obstructs water, and makes it flow through the machine slower - when water flows more slowly through the machine, the machine steams off the water at a higher rate, hence more condensation builds up in the grind chute walls.

Generally, i have found all Cuisinart coffee and espresso makers to be high maintenance to a greater or lesser extent, but the Grind-n-Brews have the highest cleaning/maintenance requirement.

Dregdrawer. miss.


Make sure the machine is clean of coffee grinds. Mine has a nasty habit of dropping them behind the dregdrawer instead of in it. Remove the central unit and give it a good clean. The dregdrawer should then slide back fully into the microswitch.
If this doesn't work, you've probably got a dud microswitch.

Machine says insert dregdrawer


Looks like you have a faulty Dreg Draw Switch or Dump Box. Check the dump box and make sure that the tab that hits the switch is still there. If it has broken then you need a new dump box.

Saeco vienna deluxe espresso machine


Clean the ball and valve assembly located in the Brew Group. It ocassionally gets "dirty" and needs cleaning. Be careful you don't lose the glass ball which is very small. Use a q-tip or small wire for cleaning the tubular area.

Grinding


Do you "hear the coffegrinder trying to grind", and after that only hot water comes out?

Does it grind and just release the coffe in to the dregdraw dry?

"standard first sollution for me when a grinder is malfunctioning is to. set the grinder to more coarse and see if it starts to work again."
