Re: grinds but no water will come out

You will have to check the water filter if you have one connected to it and see if the pressure is the same as what the manuel says it should be or the soleniod is not operating.

Beans grind and are wet but coffee doesn't come out... it goes through the cycle and spits out a little. When cycle is complete, the water light comes on, but after priming the same thing occurs.

This tells me that either the grind is too fine and or the brew unit screen, and discharge tube needs to be cleaned. Try this first press the button for making a espresso using the manual function, do not add coffee through the door then press the brew button. If water flows freely then the grind is too fine, if you get the water prime error then the screen under the red o-ring on the brew unit needs to be cleaned.

Water is not being push through the pod. The water goes through just fine when there is no pod. Seems like a pump is not forcing water through.

When you insert a pod there is a sharp pin like piece of plastic that punctures the pod to allow water to flow into it. Right next to that puncture-pin there is one or more little tubes where the water is pushed out of. Take a paper clip and shove it up there and move it around to unclog it. There are most likely coffee grinds stuck up there. You should put a paperclip up there to loosen the grinds/unclog it and then run it without a pod. You may need to do this a few times but you should notice coffee grinds passing through into the cup with the hot water even when you run it without a pod for a few times. You will notice the water coming out faster and stronger; now you can use it as your normally would.

If this solution is helpful please rate/vote for me.

Thank you.

Having a problem with the mix. In the disposed grind container I am getting a lot of water mixed in with the grinds. Tried to clean screen and a glass bead fell out. I am assuming this came out of the...

The glass bead is part of the pressure system. It goes under the long tapered spring. The bead goes in first, then the small end of the spring, then the Oring goes around the spring on the plastic part of the head. Then the manifold goes on with the L shaped tube going towards the handle side. Hold down the manifold when you puty the screws in.
water in the dredge drawer is a sign of a coarse grind. The finer the grind the less water in the dredge drawer. Don't go too fine or you will be cleaning the brew head a lot.

How many tablespoons of ground coffee are needed per cup of water in the Smart Brew coffee maker?

For ground coffee, use 1-1/2 (one and one-half) tablespoons of beans per 6 ounces of water.

For whole bean coffee, use two tablespoons of beans per 6 ounces of water.

Coffee strength is a very personal preference, so use these numbers as a guideline for middle-of-the-road coffee, and adjust to make the coffee that you like to drink.

My saeco machine is not functioning in the right order, it grinds after it makes the pad. So I first hear the clicking sound (meaning it is making the pad first with old grinded coffee) and then it grinds...

Read the first then go to the bold letters.
To program your Magic Dlx: Press and hold the steam and small espresso buttons at the same time, then push the energy saving button (top right). Water Hardness. The large coffee button programs the water hardness. Press the button once and you will have one light in the top row, left side. Press it again and you should have two lights lit. Press it three times and you have three lights lit. Four and you have four lights lit. Press it a fifth time and it goes back to one light. Each light represents your water hardness. So if you have a water hardness of 3, press it until you have three lights lit. Press the energy saver button to exit the program and save your hardness level in the machine’s computer. It will now tell you when you should descale your machine. Pre-infusion. Press the medium coffee button to activate and you should see the light come on. Press the button and turn the light off to deactivate the pre-infusion. Pre-grinding. Pre-grinding is turned on with the cup warming button. When it is lit, the pre-grinding is on. Press the button to turn it off.

Water not coming out of dispensing area, goes to drip tray instead Water comming out in drip tray instead of regular way

Try this, if the machine has a pregrind door(usually on the top front) then use the button to tell it you are using pre grind coffee, if water comes out the spout this way then the grind on the grinder is too fine, if it goes out the drain then the coffee passage is blocked, remove the brew unit and check/clear tubes, also clean the spouts on the door of the unit.

After grinding no coffeee comes out


If you open the steam knob and make a cup of water (the), can you get any water comes that way?

If not then i think you have calcium in the system.

If the grinder goes for long time it can be oily beans or if you get damp into the grinder.

Let me know if you need more help.

Best regards
