The coffee that you are using might be very oily and not able to slide over the cover. DO NOT REMOVE THE COVER. Try finding another blend that is not as oily or clean the bean hopper more often.

HI
Grinder clog
Sounds like you have a blockage in you grind passage. Try removing the brew group. Then inside on the roof of the machine where the brew unit was setting there is a drop chute where the coffee is dropped into the brew unit. From the left side of the drop chute pull down and back, and it will drop coffee. This will clear an opening that relieves pressure on the passage. There is a passage inside the drop chute area that goes to the grinder. Vacuum it out. It will be on the right side of the drop chute.
Once that is cleared go to the bean hopper. There are 2 knobs in the bean hopper. Turn the large knob to the largest number. You can turn the knob to a larger number any time but it has to be grinding to turn to a smaller number. Now replace everything and make your coffee. Once you have made your coffee you can turn the knob back to a number that was higher than the one you had it on, but only when the grinder is running.

I have got a master 5000 and the brew unit gets jammedor locks when goes on brew mode.


Hi
There are a couple (3) of things that can cause this.
1. You have a broken brew drive but you would hear a clicking noise if this happens.
2. You have an over charge going into you brew unit. There is a small knob in your bean hopper. Turn it back 1 mark and try again.
3. Your grinder has come apart and is grinding very coarse. (French press size) New grinder.

My Solis Maestro takes a long time to grind and no longer grinds for espresso. How do you remove the burrs to clean them? Should they be replaces?


HI
Yes the burrs will wear out. They can be replaced. To remove the outer burr. Twist the bean hopper counterclockwise until it stops. Lift the bean hopper out. There is a cream colored ring with 2 tabs that will lift out holding the outer burr. To get the inner cone burr out is a little more difficult. We use a vice grip and grab the burr, and lock the pliers to it. Then with a quick movement clockwise on the pliers, you loosen it. Then clockwise unscrew the burr. When you install the new burr, it truns on counter clockwise until it stops. Insert the new outer burr. Push down so the tabs will lock in. Install the bean hopper into the correct slots ( 1 large tab and 1 small tab). Twist clockwise to turn on and test. Remember it must be grinding to turn to a finer grind but can be turned to a coarser grind any time.

Jammed brewing unit


Remove the brew unit and check the screen under the red o-ring, find the 2 screws above the top piston and make sure the chamber that leads out to the tube is clear.

Bean and water fault(red) light blinking when i turn on solis master 5000 coffee machine. how to fix it. Regards vh


HI First make sure everything is in and locked (brew unit, drip tray, and dredge drawer). Open the knob on the right and flow water through the wand. Now turn the knob in the bean hopper to 16 and push the brew button. If that didn't work you might have a clog in the grinder, and will need to clean it.

Hi
Either your grind is very coarse or your injector seal is bad. The injector is behind the brew unit and has 2 orange O-rings on it. See if you can wiggle the injector?

I can't remember the simple key to disassembling the Solis Maestro for more thorough cleaning. I need to get beyond the top burr removal stage.


Hi
Rotate the bean hopper counter clockwise until it stops. Lift the bean hopper out. Remove the outer burr with the wing-lets. Can go back in either way. Clean with air or vacuum out grounds. Use small brush to help clean grounds. Reinstall burr. Line up notches of the bean hopper with shell ( large tab in large slot, and small tab in small slot). Rotate bean hopper clockwise a small amount and test.

After grinding, no coffee comes out, it stops pumping water. The grinds are wet and hot tho'


First try adjusting the grind atleast 2 numbers coarser, then run two shots for trial, if that does not fix the problem then remove the brew unit and find the screen and clean screen and tube on unit.

Hi
That sounds like your grind is too fine. Try turning the big knob in the bean hopper to a larger #, but you are probably getting a plug in the brew head. Here are some directions.
Holding the handle, the top left side is the brew head. There is an outlet pipe that exits the front, towards the door (looks like an "L" pipe). 2screws hold it to the top. Remove the 2 screws while holding the manifold ("L" pipe assembly). Once they are removed, lift the l assembly off (be careful, there is an O-ring, spring with a black seal (don't loose it or your out of luck).
Now remove the brew screen, by holding the screen with your finger and twisting the thumbscrew (remember thumbscrew, DON'T use the key to install the screen, use your fingers.....
Once the screen is out look at where the screen was. There are 2 holes. 1 big one in the center and a small one to the side.
With the brew unit upside down over the towel insert a paperclip into the small hole and force anything out the other side. I have gotten worms almost a 1" long from this passage. The paper clip has to go from this side to prevent damage to the seat on the other side.
Clean then reassemble. Brew unit on towel right side up. Then the spring with black seal down.
Now the O-ring over the spring, then place the manifold on top of that with the pipe towards the handle side. Insert your screws (I turn them backwards a little with a little downward pressure until they feel like they drop into the threads. They should turn down easily, if not back them up a little more ( we are trying to find the old threads) and tighten. Install screen, and tighten with your fingers. The screen just needs to be flush with the bottom of the brew head.
Install in machine and test

If you can remove the grind hopper(two screws) you can re-index the grinder for a finer grind.
