Beans won't grind

I have cleaned the grinder assembly as recommended on this site and still the machine will not grind beans. And when there are no beans in the grinder I don't get a warning message. The machine display appears normal and when I make a cup, it all works and sound fine but all I get is clear hot water.

    I keep getting the same message" Coff beans empty". I think the problem is the level indicator is dirty but I can't find it because I don't have the manual. ( some body threw it away). I have cleaned as much as possible but still no joy.

Try cleaning out the grinder with the instruction for this link: http://www.cerinicoffee.com/Saeco_technical_documents.asp

Polyglot, if you have done this already it sounds like there is something wrong with the grinder switch on your machine. You will have to get the machine serviced.

We service saeco espresso machines based out of New York.
Checkout our website for more information: www.CeriniCoffee.com

Youngie,

Your problem is not the same as Polyglot. Try cleaning out the grinder using the link above. It works 50% of the time. For some reason your machine is not grinding. Common reasons are water has been accidentally spilled in the bean hopper or the grinder just has a problem and needs to be addressed.

In the case where water spills into the bean hopper you may need to change the grinder burrs. (http://cerinicoffee.com/Grinder_burrs_saeco_gaggia.asp)

Hope this helps.

As part of the cleaning, use a vacuum cleaner at the top of the grinder and vacuum any coffee dust from the grinding mechanism. This allows you to get at all the parts you previously cannot get to.

Our Saeco Vienna Superautomatica sounds like it's grinding beans but keeps running until the red 'bean' light comes on and we have to shut the machine off. Any suggestions?


The grinder is timing out and stops if the beans do not enter the grinder. This happens because:
1- The grinder outlet is clogged and fresh beans cannot pass through the burrs.
2- The grind setting is too fine and helping clogging in the grinding chamber or the ground coffee outlet.
3- Operator may have been using dark roast oily beans. Like it or not, the dark roast oily beans do not make stronger espresso. Please stop using such beans in fully automatic espresso machines.
4- The grinder has already made over 2000 grinds and the burrs are blunted and not grinding beans as needed.
To solve this malfunction, clean the grinder. Make sure the grinder outlet to the doser is cleaned. This outlet passage is about 2 inches or more. To clean it, lay the machine on its back (water tank side) to allow better view of cleaning the doser and the passage of coffee from the grinder to the doser. Use the link below to find instructions for cleaning the grinder and replace the burrs.

Talea ring the grinder will not stop gringing


The Talea model is with a Ceramic grinder system. This can happen when the grinder outlet is clogged with coffee grounds. Fresh beans cannot enter the grinder as the outlet is clogged. Remember, the grinder in any machine is a grinder. It does not shovel the coffee grounds out and clean the outlet when it is clogged.
1- Check if the grind setting is too fine (powder like). If so change the setting to coarse. Fully automatic machines do not need fine grind. Keep the grind fineness like the table slat grain.
2- Check if the beans are dark roast and oily. Oily beans are a slow poison for any fully automatic machine. Change the beans to Non oily medium roast type.

Fill beans


the coffee beans are not entering in the grinder disks and since they rotate without coffee the machine understands that their is no beans. You need to clean the grinder disk and grinding coffee funel to bee sure their nothing blocking the coffee movements. Use a vaccum cleaner and try to clean everything in grinder and grinder exits. Try also the machine by regulating thegriding to more gross coffee and when it will start grinding normal then you can udjust step by step back to grinding position you have at the begeining.

Poured water in my delonghi magnifica beans hopper.


Have you tried grinding a few cups of uncooked rice through the mechanism to see if this will shift the dried on coffee grounds. It worked for a friend of mine after several attempts

Our bean grinder has stopped grinding. It spins but the beans do not grind. The machine works fine on the ground coffee option.


Did you put water in the grinder by mistake? If the grinder is wet it won't grind anymore,have to cleaned the blades physically .
OR are you using the beans from the fridge? It's a NO NO.

I bought new green coffee beans recently, roasted it myself and wanted to use it in the machine but the grinder gets stuck and won't turn. The new beans are harder and smaller than the type I used to have....


This fixes almost all the "beans will not feed or beans will not grind" problems caused by coffee bean dust packed in the burrs. Oily beans cause this problem more fequently.
a. Pour all the beans out the top.
b. Open the settings up all the way and see what else can be poured out. Use your shop vacuum to **** grounds out the spout and backward out the bean bin.
c. Pour in some instant rice and start grinding. Reduce the grind to a small setting like six and then open the settings all the way again. (The grinder will not start at a low setting with the rice in it. If you let it stop, open the settings to about 16 before trying to restart.)
d. Pour out the rice and vacuum out the ground rice.
e. Adjust the grinder to your favorite setting and try a coffee grind. Grind until most of the rice dust is expelled (any remaining trace of rice dust will not affect the flavor of the coffee).
