Your question is not right.
Grinder stops on its own in 16 to 18 seconds (times out).
It may not be grinding beans an spinning free because the beans are not feeding.
You may have used oily beans or set the grind fineness at very fine powder like. This powder like fineness also clogs the grinder..
You need to clean the grinding chamber and the ground coffee outlet.

The grinder grinds too long, then stops and then the bean refill light goes on, ---there are plenty of beans but no coffee being made. I think the grinder is not working somehow. Its a 5 year old Saeco...

The lever under the bean hopper is set to low. Push it all the way to the back.
There is a leverbehind the door in the middle top. Pull it to the minus and try again.
If that doesn't work you are going to have to take the grinder apart and clean it.

SAECO fully auto Traditional Very little crema

The crema is created by reducing the grinding to more fine so the coffee will run slower around 20 sec. Inside the coffee bean container their is un adjust control and with special tool you can turn it to grind the coffee to more fine.

Saeco Royal=,beans do not appear to be grinding, machine whirs for 30 seconds then says add beans have tried 2 different types beans after cleaning bean hopper works first 2 coffees ok then stops

Coffee Beans were roasted by local business,believe they were either not roasted enough or over roasted causing the problem, I have since tried Supermarket(Vittoria Roasted Beans) and machine is working perfectly.

Keeps saying "Coffee Beans Empty" - Saeco Royal Digital Plus

Either the coffee chute from the grinder is blocked, or the grind is too fine. Remove brew unit and check grinder chute.

The machine won't start up

in the self test does it flush the unit ? If not you have to prime the unit by allowing it to pump hot water through the frothing valve. Open the valve and the pump should pulse water out. After this the machine should indicate it is in the operating mode for coffee

Defect Saeco Odea Giro. Red exclamation flashing fast. Mashine is function only in service mode. A defect in Saeco Odea Giro. TYP 0310R ser. number. 9007SA40523803 Please help for repairing the machine. I bought the automatic coffee machine second hand. After unpacking, I discovered that someone was intruding into it cracked plastics and handles. By common check, I discovered the 1st fault - a broken piston catalog number 11003468. This is quite a common fault with these machines. 2nd defect leakage of the valve. Even one O ring was missing. I replaced all O-rings with new ones. Then I went over to check the individual sensors: Level sensor in the tank - OK Sensor closed coffee bean hopper - OK Sensor of closed door on the brewing unit side. - OK Sensor on the waste container - okay When I wanted to try switching on a microswitch that detects the presence of the brewing unit in the hole, I did not find contact. So I removed the wall behind the brewing unit and found that there were two microswitches near the toothed wheel. I checked their functionality. Both well. I assumed that one of them was not at his destination. The one with the green connector I supposed to indicate that the brewing unit is in place. I moved him to the top. I checked the state of the electric motor and lubricated the gear. I returned the wall back. Next, I ran the diagnostic mode and checked other components: a Boiler - Heats up b The pump - presses correctly and the green diode flashes during its operation and shows the activity of the flowmeter c solenoid valve - switches correctly d the grinder grinds and during its operation the green diode flashes and reveals the activity of the speed sensor in the mill e the brewing unit is moved to the top position and to the basic position without any problems Other things I've done: The whole coffee maker is cleaned, deep decontamination is performed using the diagnostic mode. Check the flow meter clean without oxidation. Check the tightness of all hoses. Both boiler thermostats are checked. Removed and thoroughly cleaned the mill. Despite this, the machine behaves as follows: Turn on the machine and fne the mill shaft. The red exclamation mark flashes very quickly. The green light of the boiler heating is not lit or flashing. However, the boiler is heating up properly. When I eject the tank water flow, the red exclamator lights up permanently. After the tank returns, the red exclamation mark will flash rapidly again and the green indicator the boiler is heated will light up properly. When switched on, the Indycatter does not light the cup. Only a drop of water drops and coffee beans lit up. Can not prepare coffee, can not refuel hot water. All this can only be done in diagnostic mode. In the diagnostic mode, I also de-aerated the machine. Both the nozzle and the coffee outlet through the brewing unit. Self-cleaning will not start. I do not know anymore, maybe there is a bug in the electronic panel. Will anyone advise me? Thank you.
