Question about Saeco Incanto Classic Espresso Machine
8 out of 10 times when I want to make a coffe the machine tells me that there are no beans in the container after it started grinding for a few seconds. Even though the bean container is full this message comes up. Usually if I try to push the beans down with a wooden spoon I end up with a nice coffe but there is a lot of wasted beans if I don't do that. Thanks for all your help.
I do have the same problem.
I have removed and cleaned the grinder mechanism.
Being an electronic technician I did have a look and tried to find what method they use to detect that the new beans reservoir is empty and I did not see any kind of detector.
I suspect that they monitor the motor current to do this. If it is so would'n it be possible to desable this fonction since it is more then evident when the reservoir is empty or about to be?
Any body knows how they do monitor the status of the new beans reservoir?

We have had two different models of these Saeco supers and have had the same problem with both of them. The machines appear to be the same basic internal construction with added bells & whistles.
The issue seems to be with the design of the bean hopper; the beans don't move with gravity from on top of the grind adjustment piece, down to the grinder area. I have found that if one lightly pushes the beans down at the back of the hopper, pushing down towards the front, that the beans will fill the air pocket which forms around the grinder inlet. It works better with the hand than with a spoon. I'll also tap the side of the
hopper when the beans are grinding to help the beans shake loose
and drop down in the hopper. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like
this gets any better with cleaning, degrees of bean roast (oily-dry) or time; It's just something you have to get used to doing whenever you make coffee.

Try increasing your grinder size. Normally the machine come on 8, however depending on the coffee type and darkness it may differ. You can also try cleaning your grinder out.
