Question about Saeco Royal Professional Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Water but no coffee

When I select the expresso button or medium sized coffee button the machine grinds, then prebrews and then water comes out of the steam spout rather than coffee coming out from underneath. The machine still spits out the cake (into the slide out unit). I have cleaned everything and the machine has been working reliably for 3 years. Any solutions?

Your grinder needs cleaning- are you using oily beans and/or storing beans in refrig/freezer. Both are a problem for grinder. Also, grinder should not be set to "fine"- it will definitely cause clogging and the situation you point out.. After celaning grinder, will need to re-set it.

Why are black particles being dispensed into the hot wqter from my Keurig coffee maker? How can this be corrected?


Hello, Irwin -

Those "small gritty black particles" are most likely coffee grounds which are so small they slip into the hot water and eventually the brewed coffee.

The grind size of your coffee may be too fine. Drip coffee method coffee makers, including the Keurig, require medium or medium-fine grind coffee.

You may wish to check your coffee maker to determine if coffee grounds leaked into the space between the k-cup and the k-cup holder:

I have a saeco magic comfort +. It is, all of a sudden, not going thru the rinse upon set up. Then, it is not putting water thru the grinds, and, thus, pushing all grinds dry to waste, not generating...


Hi
Don't really like the rinse cycle because it waste water. If you want to rinse the brew unit just push the "scoop button" and not put any coffee in, then push the large coffee. Does the same thing but doesn't use as much water.
Dry grounds is one of my tips.

When I just have water in the portafilter it runs through fine. When I put the expresso in it clogs and expresso will not flow through.


No solution here. Utopia directions say to only use MEDIUM (drip) grind. Ain't it awful? I prefer ultra fine grind, frankly muddy coffee.Deb

Hi Bill
What happens when you do a tea ? (hot water only, NOT the steam button) do you also get little water ?
The fact that you are getting steam is good as there are 2 heating systems in the unit.
Have you ran the descaling recently (if you do not use filter ) ?
If you have or use a filter the problem is likely to be at the rear of the machine, however the back contents all the power and you will need to be happy to do some stripping down of the machine,
In the back you have the pump, valves, heater etc.
I am just about to draw up a flow chart of the water system inside the machine and have it published online (couple of days).
Are you happy to strip machine down ?

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...


HI
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.

My palazzo only works when i press the button for expresso?it doesnt work when i push the button for the bigger cup ?


HI
If it works for espresso, but it doesn't work for the large cup, try holding the large cup button down and keep it down. Let it go through the grind, the clicking, and if it starts to dispense coffee , still don't release it until you have the desired amount in your cup. Then release it.
If one of the coffee buttons is held down for 3 seconds or more and then released, the water program goes back to zero. No water. You have to reprogram the button like we did above.

Water on top of the filter after brewing


my experience with this machine is that this varies greatly with the type of beans you use. I would experiment with a few types of beans, roasts, and you might get lucky.

Cafe Roma Expresso/Cappucino machine


My understanding is that this is normal with units like the ESP8XL which use a pressurized portafilter. Non-pressurized units will leave a dry puck of used grounds.

Hot water


Have you kept up with descaling?

Probably the water heater has failed. If you're technical then most parts should be replaceable but you may have to order them from Gaggia in Italy.
