Question about Saeco Spidem Villa
Grinder makes noise but keeps spinning without seeming to actually grind more than a few beans and keeps spinning until red light comes on. I have plenty of beans in hopper and they are getting down to the bottom.
Sounds like you have a blockage in you grind passage. Try removing the brew group. Then inside on the roof of the machine where the brew unit was setting there is a drop chute where the coffee is dropped into the brew unit. . From the left side of the drop chute pull down and back, and it will drop coffee. . This will clear an opening that relieves pressure on the passage. There is a passage inside the drop chute area that goes to the grinder. Vacuum it out. It will be on the right side of the drop chute.
Once that is cleared go to the bean hopper. If you have 2 knobs in the bean hopper. Turn the small knob to the minus, (if you don't have one, disregard). Turn the large knob to the largest number. You can turn the knob to a larger number any time but it has to be grinding to turn to a smaller number. Now replace everything and make your coffee. Once you have made your coffee you can turn the knob back to a number that was higher than the one you had it on, but only when the grinder is running.

Testimonial: "Although good information was provided, it didn't solve the problem. Thank you for trying and I left a follow-up clarification report."
Is there any possible way you can get a wire up the pathway or from the top to where the beans go down? Don't do anything to compromise the unit though. If you can't do that find a repair shop. This is just more than a normal problem with the unit an a professional shop should look at it

Testimonial: "Thanks tried the wire (after a pipe cleaner proved too soft) I don't think the wire was really maneuverable enough but thanks for the suggestion."
