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.

Generally, this is not a problem with the machine but with how you're loading the coffee! Sounds typical of one of these problems:-

Not enough coffee in the basket
Coffee should be filled and tamped to about 3mm below the rim.
Coffee grind not fine enough (too coarse)
Do you grind your own coffee or buy ready-ground? If buying ready-ground, make sure it is for espresso (fine) and not for filter or plunger.
If you have your own grinder, (like the Sunbeam Conical Grinder), then make sure the coffee hopper on top is securely connected to the grinder. I'd been using mine for years on the the finest grind (1) not realising the hopper wan't on right. Only discovered it when I took it apart to clean. Now my grinder is on 9-10 to grind for espresso.
Coffee not tampered down hard enough
You do need to provide a reasonable degree of pressure to tamp he coffee down just right.
Group head not turned tight enough
Push the group handle as far to the right as it will go, then ease it back just a fraction to have the right pressure.

Empty the grinder and see if it will run with no coffee bean in it. Some times debris will get caught in the grinder because it got mixed with the beans from the factory. If it runs your good to go. If not then the mother connection are not solid and it will run off and on at will.

We have a sunbeam cafe series coffee machine that is 2 years old but suddenly under extracts on the pour and cannot reach the extraction pressure we are used to. We grind our own beans as well.

My Coffee Gaggia Vision is grinding and the coffee is coming out very weak. The billet coming out is very wet and small. Any solutions or ideas?


see this matter causes:
Make sure there's water in the unit's water tank.

  • 2 Unscrew the shower disk from the top of the unit and rinse it. Dry the disk and screw it back in place.


  • 3 Replace the coffee grounds with properly ground beans. Coffee beans that are either too finely or too coarsely ground will adversely affect the flow of coffee from the machine.
  • 4 Make sure the coffee in the filter is not packed too firmly if the coffee isn't flowing at all. If the flow is too fast, tamp the coffee down a bit more with the tamper.
  • God bless you

    Water leaks into side small reservoir, under the grinder.(normally there is only a bit of dry ground coffee. I need to empty it twice a day, because it fills up to the edge. Big water Reservoir at bottom...


    Hi
    Sounds like your drain is getting plugged with coffee residue. Remove your brw unit. There is an injector that has 2 orange o-rings in it in the back. That pocket below it is filling with water. There is a drain that is to the bottom left that goes into the drip tray in front. Use a prob of some kind that is about 12" long that you can stick down and forward in the drain pocket. Work it towards the fron and you should open the drain again. it fills with oils, so use some hot sudzy water and clean it out.

    Coarse grounds and no water!


    Hi
    Its your grinder that is the problem. It may have come apart. Look at the center burr and see if it is off to one side. If it is that is your problem.

    Coffee doesn't fall in bag (bunnomatic G1 coffee grinder)


    keep clicking the De-chaf lever on the right. This tamps down all the loose grounds. Static is common with coffee due to the low humidity of the grounds (even here in Hawaii) try attaching a small metal chain to the grinder case with a used coffee clip on the end of the chain to attach to the empty bag. This will help it 'ground' out the static to the case.

    Our Saeco Vienna Deluxe will not stop grinding. Any ideas?


    Hi
    3 things
    1. Grind is too fine. Move to a very coarse grind, say 16.
    2. Move the small knob to the - side and try again.
    3. If that didn't work your going to have to clean you grinder.

    It is says fill the beans even if the are full, snd dont make a coffee


    Your grinder is probably clogged with fine powder. Set the grinder adjustment to a coarser grist, and see if this pushes out packed coffee from the grinder. Open the lid for preground coffee and clean out the outlet from the grinder.

    It is the tamper in the brew unit that feels if there`s enough coffee before brewing. If this gets to far down during tamping, it will send a message to the mainboard that there`s not enough coffee, and the message Fill Beans will appear.
