SOURCE: Grind is too coarse and "pucks" are wet and fall apart.

You say " I am getting a weak brew because of not being able to adust the grind to more coarse with the adjustment knob in the bean hopper" By making it more coarse you are making it weaker. Unless you just wrote it wrong. To make it stronger you should lower the grinder number to a smaller number. Usually about 4-6. Be sure you have the grinder grinding when you move it to a lower number. The pump noise could be that in shipping your pump came loose from it's mount. Nothing you can do without sending it to a Authorized Saeco Repair shop.

SOURCE: Why are my ejected coffee pucks very wet? Seems

First off is the a Delux model? If it is your Opti doser needs to be turned up a couple notches. Try turning it all the way to the + and then back off 1 click. Wet pucks have 2 solutions. Either the grind is too coarse or you don't have enough coffee in the brew unit to take up the air space and that leaves room for water.

SOURCE: All water directed to Frother/ Water nozzle on Impressa C%

The Multivalve seems to be stuck. When you start up the machine you should hear the multivalve turning 2 times, if it`s silent, the valve is defective. This valve is important to guide the water in the right direction. Contact your servicedealer and let them have a look. There`s also a small chance that the electronic board are sending wrong or no signals to the valve

SOURCE: Capresso C3000 Mega-weak coffee

I have a Capresso fo 7 years now, had few problems, but always solve them.
If youe machine does all the functions properly, but doesn't give you coffee, you should check if everytnhig goes into the grounds tray. If that's the case you may only have a broken "O ring" inside the pressing element. It makes the coffe, but throws it away instead of filling the cup. I had that problem, and it was the "O ring".
If the grounds dunped on the tray are dry, you're looosing the water in the back, probably on the relief valve.
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: I have a Saeco Odea

I recently had this problem. I throughly cleaned and lubricated the brew group as directed by the manual. Apparently if the brew group doesn't move smoothly enough it won't grind the correct amount of beans. Try lubricating and then brewing 2-3 cups to have the machine recalibrate the grind amount.

Have you clean the brew unit with the cleaning tablets? This dissolves and rids the brew unit of the oils which in turn build up and clog the brew unit - the result being watery pucks and less product being disbursed.

Bosch benvenuto b30 had for years and loved. Now when use beans the coffee/espresso is too watery and pucks are like sludge after. Works good when use preground coffee .


You have accidentally turned down the brew strength selector, on front of unit just above "clean" and "descale" buttons. Dial it the the maximum. Will grind longer, make more grounds, larger puck, stronger coffee. Or this dial is broken/ wire broken etc. u can disassemble per some other posts on here and check wire connections. I did all that then realized someone had just turned it down. So I turned it to maximum strength and problem fixed.

When things get wet to they tend to spread apart when pressure is released - normal thing to happen. Only option is to use orange juice instead of water.

Waret Pucks


Hi There are 2 problems that can cause a watery puck. 1. Like EsWorld said, If the grinds is too coarse it leaves room for more water and you get a watery puck. 2. But if your grind is like a grain of salt, the you don't have enough coffee going into the brew unit, and this leaves room for extra water. To fix this, there is a lever on the top center of the door. The lever will increase the dose if pushed towards the back. DON'T push the lever to the full back position. This could cause an over charge, which could cause the brew unit to dump the ground coffee with out making because it could not compress the charge, or it could break the brew drive. 1 click back from the full plus is fine and will give a great shot.

Brewing cycle and upper filter?


Be sure your metal strainer in the coffee puck funnel isn't clogged. Check you grind level adjustments also.
