UPDATE: After returning our maker and getting a new one, we were informed there is a shoot opening under the coffee bean receptable and you can clear out a coffee shoot clog there. The picture in the manual shows where the opening is. Hopefully it will work!

Runner, sounds like you've got a jam up! Remove all the coffee you can If you can, try to remove the burr and clean whatever you find out. Now, turn the unit upside down over the sink to remove everything messy. Then, turn the unit upside down over a newspaper and tap the unit a couple of times to dislodge what may be jamming it. Put it all back and you may be okay. Otherwise, you'll have to dig deeper into the unit to remove the coffee bean 'stuff' that is jamming it. You may even be able to flush it out with warm water. Be sure to air dry everything before reloading with coffee.

What would cause the machine to grind the beans but not produce any coffee despite the water tank being full?

Your grinder setting might be too fine. Only adjust while the grinder is grinding -- set to a coarser grind. Have you tried the preground coffee dispenser? Again, use coarser ground coffee in case the sieve is getting clogged.

The grinder spins but no beans get grided. sometimes if i push them down it will work for a while.

Remove all beans from grinder and with the remain beans adjust the grinder to more gross grinding and the make 3 to 4 coffees.
Then Use a vacum cleaner and absorve as much from the grinder. Wash also the Beans hopper with soap and hot water so all oil remianing go away. Dry it very well and put back in place.
Now add new add some new beans and try to make an espresso and when the grinder spins then rotate back to the original grinding position. Remeber that you must go back to fine one step at a time not at once since this will blocked the grinder blades with grounded coffe and grinder will not rotate.
You should to this often is you use oily dark roated beans beans. I sugest to find also a better quality beans which are more light color thus less oily.

The bean grinder doesnt grind, only water comes out

If it is working before, probably the coffee chute is clogged up. You can remove the bean hopper and see where the coffee drop into the brew unit.If the chute is still attached just clean the blockage, if it is broken you will have to remove the grinder and replaced it.

No coffee is coming out of the machine...

in our machine we wanted a stronger coffee so we adjusted the auto grinder (where the coffee beans are housed) to the finest setting thinking the finer the grind the stronger the coffee...after doing this the machine wouldnot make coffee...we sent it away while still under warranty and the tech said that the grind selection was too low so they just turned the grinder back up a notch and it worked fine ....dont know if this will help but it's worth a try!

Brand New Incanto, Grinder Doesn't Work


If you look at the adjustment knob in the bean hopper, make sure it is in the middle i think it will be "8".
Make sure you not get any damp into the grinder.

Try to make 2-3 cup of coffee.

Let me know if i can help you more

Best regards

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."
