    Had the coffee maker 2 years and it has worked great. now the grinding part isn't working. You can hear the whirling but no coffee gets ground and then the out of beans light comes on. I have taken it apart as much as you can. I cleaned the entire coffee maker and i pulled the bean holder off and cleaned down in there where the grinder is. The grinder is going around but it is not moving the beans.??

When the grinder spins free and fast it only means that fresh beans are not feeding into the burrs. This happens when:
1- Grind setting is too fine and beans cannot enter the grinder mechanism.
2- Use of oily dark roast beans can clog the ground coffee chamber and preven the fresh beans entering the grinder.
3- The ground coffee chamber outlet is clogged due to oily beans or too fine coffee setting.

When you cleaned the grinder you may not have cleaned the coffee outlet to the doser on the left. You can clean the outlet to open the passage of coffee grounds to collect in the dosing device..
After cleaning the outlet, you should next make sure that coffee grounds are not packed in the doser. The doser is inside the door right above the brew group.
To access the doser:
1- Remove water tank.
2- Remove the brew group.
3- Lay the machine on its back for full view of the doser.
4- Pull the doser door open (it is like an Attic door.
5- Keep the doser door open and clean the inside with a brush. The outlet from the grinder is on the right side with a wire wiper cleaner that moves across the grinder outlet fills from the grinder. This opening.
Use a brush to clean the doser.
On the left of the doser space there is a plastic flap that is pushed to the left when coffee grounds fill the doser.
At certain distance push back (1/4") the notch on top of the flap pushes the doser micro switch pin to stop the grinder. Push the flap gently to the left to make sure that it is moving well. With each push back of the flap, one can hear the feeble click sound from the micro switch.
When the above cleaning is done, try the grinding.
If the conical burrs have not been replaced for over 2500 grinds, it is time to do so.

The above grinder and grinder doser cleaning instructions are available as download files on the following page link:

One can find many useful maintenance guides on one page.
Good luck.

When i step on the foot it makes a buzzing sound but doesn't do anything mbut if i turn it manually uit works.and its reading likr its good on the display.

Is the sound a buzz or a whirring sound? If it is whirring, your belt is broke, take it in and have it replaced. You might has well have it serviced at the same time (clean, oil and adjust)

Pitney Bowes E700 doesn't print at all althougth the mechanism appears to be working fine. I've changed the cartridge and cleaned the print head and run maintenance several times but to no av

Addressing Original Question: Its essential that the PB E700 machine is linked to Pitney Bowes account to either a) add postage or, b) carry out an Inspection. within 90 days or machine will start flashing "Inspection Due" if this is ignored after a further 30 days the machine will start flashing "Inspection Required" and stop printing! Perhaps this is the solution required.
a) First Connect machine to telephone line as if you were going to top up with postage.
b) Press "Refill"
c) Press "0"
d) Press "Enter"
Machine should display your current balance with PB.
And the Inspection message will be cleared.
Hope that helps. I also misunderstood the "Inspection" message thinking it was referring to a maintenance requirement, when it is actually an antifraud/security requirement of the postal authorities to check location and usage of the machine.

There was what looked like steam coming out of the top of the printer where the rolling apparatus (things that turn on cylinders) are. In addition, sometimes my printer doesn't want to print and it...

It would be helpful to know what kind of printer. Is it ink-jet or laser? Color or black and white? What brand and model number?

Generically speaking, what you see as steam could be a bit of toner coming out of the machine if it is a laser. Orange (or red) usually tells that there is a problem, Have you ever changed the drum?

Are you using re-manufactured cartridges? Sometimes these have defects and cause problems with the printing. The noises you hear could be that the machine is cleaning the heads, if it is an inkjet.

If it is a "low end" printer with three years of use, it might be time to replace it. If you really like the machine, consider using some cleaning supplies specially designed for the type of printer you have and do a little bit of maintenance.

Saeco Royal=,beans do not appear to be grinding, machine whirs for 30 seconds then says add beans have tried 2 different types beans after cleaning bean hopper works first 2 coffees ok then stops

Coffee Beans were roasted by local business,believe they were either not roasted enough or over roasted causing the problem, I have since tried Supermarket(Vittoria Roasted Beans) and machine is working perfectly.
