I need a description for how to open and clean the grinder. I keep getting fill beans message and it has beans.


I have not done it, but I believe you simply remove the two screws you can seen when you look into the coffee bin.

I used to get "fill beans" messages when there were beans in the hopper. Eventually I determined this was due to my choice of beans: oily (ie. shiny) beans seem to clog up frequently, "dry" beans (beams without a sheen) rarely clog up.

Since the beans are gravity fed, oily ones tend to stick to one another

Why fill bean message shows on display when machine is full of beans?


Difficult to say without the machine in front of me. Normally you get this response if no beans fall into the grinder. Are your beans oily, sticking together and not falling in?
Normally freshly roasted beans esp dark roasts are a bit oily. If so then you can change roasts, brands or mix with another type.
You might try to adjust your grind per the manual. (turn knob inside the bin while the grinder is grinding) see #8 page 12.
If the beans are falling in and grinding and you still get this msg I would say you have a grinder problem.

Coffee beans are not going into grinder.


Your grinder is probably blocked.
It may happen if your coffee is greasy or oily.

Try to empty the coffee bin and using your vacuum cleaner, removed has much as possible the grounded coffee around the grinder.

Also, from the inside, look where the coffee grind should drop from the grinder to the brewer unit and removed any grind that could block and prevent coffee to drop.

I just received my brand new talea giro plus in the mail today. went thru the instruction manual and set everything up step by step. when i turned it on the very first time the red exclamation point is...


I had a similar problem. I opened and closed the water tank, the top coffee bean coffee and the dreg door several times. I even 'stirred' the coffee beans a bit. Finally, after simply taking the coffee bean cover off and putting it back on, the light went to green. Even now, several months later, I sometimes have to open and close everything to make the green light come on, although it seems to be getting better with age. (like me :-))

Grinder does not stop


I need more information to solve this.

If you mean the grinder just spins but doesn't seem to be grinding anything - and then after 30 seconds or so it tells you the bean hopper is empty - then the problem is sticky, oily beans that aren't sliding down into the grinder.

You want to buy freshly roasted (roasted less than a week ago) beans. Coffee beans from the supermarket are old, stale and sticky with rancid oil. Even Starbucks and Peets - although the sign says "roasted daily" if you read the fine print, the beans in the store are rotated out 90 days after roasting. The oils turn rancid and get sticky after a couple of weeks so you really need to get beans from a local roaster or order them from a roaster who ships them fresh.

I have been using RedBird espresso blend and these beans work perfectly with this machine. They also are the best tasting of any espresso blend I've ever tried. The price is reasonable (cheap even) and the roast date is written on the bag. I get my beans 2 days after they were roasted.

In the meantime, until you get some coffee beans that are not oily, you can stir the beans in the hopper. Use a wooden coffee stirring stick or a chopstick and just lift the hopper lid and stir the beans so they slide down into the grinder. You will probably have to do this before each coffee and maybe even 2-3 times just to get one coffee.

Once you get some fresh roasted beans that don't have that oily shine to them you will be grinding without any problems.

I own the Saeco Vienna Superautomatica which I have enjoyed tremendously!!! Unfortunately I made a cup of coffee yesterday and heard a "clunk" then the red light came on. I turned off the machine and...


You have not mention anything about the group. Did you try to take it out and put back again. If the problem insist this mean from your description that the clunk is from group motor gears or even the motor gear it self.
In this case the machine must be desasemble in order to find out which part brocken.
If you can remove group and put back again and nothing happents then switch it of and proceed as above since it might just one gear and by replace it the machine will be ok again. However if you try something more then their is a chance to burn the motor also and the cost for repairing it will high and it will be better to thing about a replacement since spare parts are very high compare to a complete machine that might get it from special offers.
You revice all above and if you need any further asistant you can coment back.
ood luck

My machine states I need to fill it with beans when it has beans in it. How can I fix this, or am I able to have this fixed locally?


It seems that your grinder is clogged. try opening the lid for preground coffee. With a torchlight you will be able to see the outlet from the grinder. Clean out all the coffee that`s stuck there. It`s smart to have a small brush with an angle to do this, and then vacuum it all out.
Also, check your adjustment on the grinder, it shouldn`t be to fine, this could clogg the grinder again.

If this doesn`t help, you need to contact your local servicecenter.
