Re: Gaggia Trevi or Spidem Trevi

You may have a legitimate mechanical malfunciton but sometimes the simple solution is the right one! The chute on this (and other) superautomatic does not like the oily residue that beans inevitably leave. All it takes it gently putting one or two fingers into the bean hopper as the grinder motor starts to sound louder/faster (this is caused by the grinder motor being under less load/strain because no beans are feeding) and wiggling for 1-2 seconds. If you do this immediately after hearing the grinder motor's rpms increase you will not get a "fill bean hopper" error message2.gif. No hard pushing is required, just a gentle wiggle. There is a shroud over the actual bottom of the hopper, so you don't want to stick your fingers beyond that. If you are concerned about actually sticking your fingers into the hopper while the grinder is running, you can simply push down on the top of the beans with gentle pressure which will in effect force the beans down and accomplish the same thing. This technique + regular cleaning of the grinder may be all you need. Hope this helps! Tony

Can I use coffee cleaning tablets with a Spidem trevi digital plus

I would not use this product unless you exactly know what it is, and if it's appropriate for your coffee machine. Instead get some Saeco decalcifier powder DEZCAL that you add to your water and follow your machine instruction on how to decalcify.

Coffee come out fast and is weak ...

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.

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

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.
