If you cannot adjust the grind any finer, youmight have to open the grinder and reset burrs or replace them.

I have turned the grind knob all the way down, below 1.


Sounds like there is not enough coffee to make a solid puck. If you get crema, grind coarseness sounds ok. A finer grind will produce less coffee grounds for the puck and increases chance of clogging.
You may have to balance grind size with amount of crema to get solid puck.
Big problem with these is you want dark roast for espresso, but oil on beans clogs grinder. Are you using a dark roast? A medium roast works better in these. Or, can you increase the grind time? My Super-auto had a program option to increase time. But not in reg instructions. Got it from authorized repair facility.

Coffee come out fast and is weak ...


Hi
2 things can cause this.
1. the grind is too coarse. That would be the big knob in the bean hopper. Turn it down when its grinding only. From the factory it is set on 8.
2. The grinder has seperated internaly. That is a tough one to fix, as the grinder should be taken apart and cleaned, then reassembled.

The grinder only grinds the beans very coarsely, resulting in weak espresso. Adjusted the lever several different ways with same result. Can't figure it out! Help! Haven't had good coffee! Can't think! ...


First ignore the numbers on the adjustment knob, lets fix that, with the grinder running turn towards fine as far as you can, then check grind if it is not fine enough, then remove screws in bean hopper and lift slowly until you can turn the knob without it touching the gears and move it towards coarse say #12 or so, then lower hopper so that knob sits on gears and repeat the testing until you get the best shot of espresso. Just move toward finer.

My magic deluxe is grinding very coarse on number "1" grinder setting and the coffee is very weak; do you think the grinder blades are blunt? the machine is 13 years old.


Hi
Your grinder has seperated. The cork screw in the center is not centered. Grinder needs to be replaced. If you want one let me know.

How can I ajust my machine the coffee is coming out weak and watery I don't get that creamy,strong coffee anymore


HI
There are more than a few things that can cause weak coffee.
Grind is too coarse. It should look like coarse sugar.
You cleaned the brew unit and left a part out or put it in incorrectly.
Grind adjustment is set too high. Turn to a lower # while the grinder is operating.
Grinder is been taken apart and not put back together correctly.
Grinder is broken and the grinds are just big chunks.

Saeco Italia coffee too weak - grindes too coarse


Remove beans from chamber, then remove the 2-3 screws in the chamber, then lift hopper slightly and turn adjustment knob towards the middle number, or halfway between fine and coarse. Then lower hopper make sure the gears line up together, set screws add beans and adjust finer.

Saeco De Luxe Coarse Grind


You could have knocked it out of its shaft or worse, Cracked the shaft itself.

Settings could be off too, It fairly common. Recheck the chamber, and make sure the plastic casing isn't cracked and the grinder doesn't wabble at all. It should be fairly firm.

If it isn't firm, bad news, cracked shaft.

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.
