The built-in grinder has 7 settings and there are 6 gram and 9 gram dosing options to adjust the taste of your coffee. There is also a pre-ground coffee option, 3 programmable brewing buttons and your choice or using a steam wand or the auto-frother. The LCD display makes operation a breeze. The default grind setting is "5" If the coffee flows too quickly (coarse grind) or too slowly (fine grind) into the cup, adjust coffee grinder. The recommended grind level is position 5. Should grinding be too coarse, adjust it on a position 5 to 3. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Simonelli Microbar ii the grinder positions change settings every time make a coffee grinder mooving positions automaticaly


First, I'm not a Simonelli technician. Though I've worked on similar table top machines.
* The grinder on these small machines (compared to commercial units) are usually manually adjusted. They are usually built with a range from very fine Turkish coffee (like talcum powder) to a fairly fine auto drip grind. You should not be able to coarse it up as used in a french press.
* There should be some sort of indexing to indicate at least the direction to rotate the grind adjust, say; fine to coarse, or even Turkish to American, etc. Though it may be a generic + to -.
* There may be a positive 'click' to each setting or possible hold down lock mechanism. But the most common is a spring loaded nub that clicks into place. If yours did click before and not now then you need to take it in for service as you probably lost the part (tiny ball and spring)
* A thought; If your an "Americano" drinker (course grounds will hot water filtered through it to fill a Mug size cup) then it may have happened when adjusting to the larger grind size. The indexer ball and spring is only held down by the height of the grind ring. Exceeding the largest grind will allow the ball and spring to pop out of position which can fall into the burrs and destroy them. It may be possible the ball (steel ball bearing) is still trapped in the burr plates and moves them around. Can't grind steel.
* Still got problems? Check with vendor or MFR for service or replacement. Most machines of this type do not have serviceable parts or adjustments.

Saeco Italia automatic espresso coffee machine Grinder Cleaning Instructions


Saeco Italia Grinder Cleaning Instructions



Removal
Step-1: Remove beans that are in the bean hopper without spilling them inside. (Use Vacuum).

Step-2: Remove the beans container by removing 3 phillips head screws. Remove the rubber gasket from below the hopper. At this stage the upper burr will be visible.

Step-3: Rotate counter-clockwise the outer ring of the grinder assembly (the ring has gears half way around), until the red mark is at the 9 o’clock position, looking at it from the front of the machine.

Step-4: Lift the upper burr by using the fins that are on top. Press lightly on the doser adjustment gear, to clear it from the dose adjustment gear.

Cleaning-
At this stage, the grinding chamber will be exposed. Clean out any crushed coffee in the grinder chamber and the burrs. Use Vacuum and cleaning brush.

To Re-Assemble

Step-1: With the red mark on the outer ring still at the 9 o’clock position, replace the upper burr back into the grinder. Make sure that the red line (on the upper burr) is at the 3 o’clock position. This position will align the other tabs as well. During re-installation, press slightly on the doser adjustment gear so the upper burr will clear it as it is placed back in.

Step-2: With the Upper burr in place, rotate the outer ring clockwise until it stops. The two red marks should be aligned at the 3 o’clock position underneath the doser adjustment gear.

Step-3: Replace the soft rubber gasket back on the upper burr. Use the fins to align it properly.

Step-4: Slide the doser adjustment gear toward the front of the machine until it stops.

Step-5: Before replacing the bean hopper, rotate the grinder adjustment wheel to Zero (0), and the doser adjustment wheel to Minus symbol (-). Place the bean hopper into position on the machine, slightly adjusting each adjustment wheel as you are placing it down in the machine. Once in place, fasten the bean container with the 3 screws. Test each adjustment wheel through the full range of motion. The grinder knob rotates from 0 to 18 and back, and doser knob from Minus (-) to Plus (+) and back.

Now position the grinder adjustment knob at Eight (8) and the doser adjustment knob to the halfway point between the Plus (+) and the Minus (-) marks. This will put the machine back to the factory setting.

When using for the first time after adjusting the grinder, it may take more than one grinding cycles to make the first cup of coffee.

Grind time is short, puck is wet and sloppy, espresso weak


Sounds like you might have more than one problem.

From page 12 of the manual... NOTE THE LAST LINE.
"8. ADJUSTING THE GRINDER
......
• Open the lid of the bean container.
• While the grinder is running turn the grind selector switch to
the desired position (Fig. 6).
-The smaller the dots, the finer the grind.
-The bigger the dots, the coarser the grind.
Important:
The grinding grade can only be adjusted while
the grinder is actually grinding."

Whatever the setting is at the grind is always fine. What can I do to re-calibrate the grinder?


Grind Adjustment Tools required: Large blade and medium Phillips head screwdrivers In order to adjust the grind, follow these steps (Refer to figure A): 1. Remove all coffee from the hopper. 2. Set selector knob to the finest setting (Espresso or Turkish) depending on the model. 3. Loosen both knob retainer screws in selector knob one turn only. 4. While pressing the bag switch, located behind the spout, press the START button so that the grinder will run during adjustment. 810 model - Press the ON or START button so that the grinder will run during adjustment. 5. With the grinder still running, turn the adjusting screw in the center of the selector knob slowly to the right until a slight clicking noise is heard. Immediately turn the adjusting screw to the left one grind setting. This is the finest grind obtainable. 6. Tighten both of the knob retainer screws. Once the ESPRESSO grind has been set (Turkish for Model 835, 875, 890), the other grind settings will automatically set correctly. 7. Press the STOP or OFF button. IMPORTANT: Always be sure the grinding burrs are not touching while the machine is running on the ESPRESSO/TURKISH setting. Otherwise serious damage to the motor may result. dr_buckhead.png

Machine says beans are empty and will not brew.


Try adjusting the grinder coarser when it is running. Either the grind is too fine or the grinds chamber is blocked, remove the brew unit and check the gate to the grinder on the inside right.

Talea Giro - Will not grind coffee


Does the spindle spins when you do the grinding? If not the parts in the grinder is broken. If the spindle still spins and you get sort of wood chip grounds, the adjusting wheel has come off the grinder when you adjust the grinder too coarse.You can undo the grinder if you know how to open the machine. Go to my Odea solutions and look up step by step instruction on how to. Itis very similar.All the best.

Kitchen aid burr grinder adjustments


You are correct, the grider positions are locked internaly so the grinder will not go too fine since this can damage the blades and also too fine need more power from motor and also can block it by rottating normaly. However you ir open the grider you can overcome the lock and udjust so the grinder can grind more fine coffee. In order to be always at the safe side just move gradualy step by step until you find the perfect grinding and adjust so that will be the minimum plus one mor move for furure adjustment if you need.
Just for reference the corect grinding is for 7 to 7.5 gr of coffee the running time of the coffee from your machine should be 25 sec for 25 cc of coffee aprox.
Good luck.

I have a Saeco Incanto Rondo with a grinder related problem


First step.If the grind is to coarse the burrs will spin to fast sensing no beans.
Solution: The grind needs to be finer. Caution you can over adjust causing the clay burrs to shatter.

Ginding problems, all clogged up


Follow these instructions to put grinder back together...

Items needed to clean grinder
1- #2 Phillips head screw driver
1 Cleaning brush
Prep:
Remove all beans from the bean hopper, vacuum out any
beans that cannot be scooped out by hand.
Remove the front and back screws and pull off bean hopper
container from the machine. (Note: The rear screw is longer
than the front screw.)
Note: Doser adjustment knob is available only on Vienna
Digital and Vienna Deluxe Rapid Steam.
Place screws in a safe place so that they will not be lost.
Cleaning the Grinder Viennas
back screw
front screw
grinder
knob
doser
knob
Before beginning to clean the grinder please be sure to turn the machine off and unplug it from the wall
socket. Grinder Tip: Using an oily bean will cause the coffee to build up quickly and clog the grinder.
Saeco recommends using a medium to dark colored bean that is not oily.
After cleaning the grinder and then brewing a cup of coffee it may take 2-3 grinding cycles for the machine
to dispense coffee.
Step 1:
Remove the black rubber gasket, then vacuum additional beans or grinds from the grinder area (Fig. 1).
Rotate the outer ring of the grinder counter-clockwise until the red line is at the 12 o'clock position (as
viewed from the front of the machine) or until the red line on the outer ring is 180º from the opposite red
line on inner burr ring (Fig. 2).
Lift the inner burr ring out of the assembly (Fig. 3).
Figure 1 Figure 2 Figure 3
Step 2:
Vacuum out any residual grinds from inside the grinder and clean the grinder burrs using the cleaning
brush (Fig. 5). Clean out the grinder coffee chute using the end of the cleaning brush (Fig. 5).
Remove the drip tray, open the service door, remove the dregdrawer and brew group. Gently pull
down the coffee doser door and brush out any ground coffee that may be inside the chute (Fig. 6).
Reassembly:
Be sure that the red line on the outer ring is still in the 12 o'clock position. Place the inner burr ring back
into the grinder making sure the red line on the inner burr is at the 6 o'clock position or 180º opposite from
the red line on the outer ring (Fig. 2). Once the inner burr ring is in place, rotate the outer ring clockwise
until it will not turn any further. At this time the two red lines should be aligned. The grinder is now at the
"0" position. Replace black round rubber gasket (Fig. 7).
Take the bean hopper container and rotate the grinder adjustment wheel to zero (0) (Fig. 8) and the doser
adjustment knob to the minus symbol (-) (Fig. 9). Slide the doser adjustment gear toward the left of the
machine until it stops. (Note: The Vienna Black does not have a doser adjustment knob. Only the Vienna
Digital & Vienna Deluxe Rapid Steam have a doser adjustment wheel.)
Reinstall the bean hopper container being sure to use the LONG screw in the back, then replace the finger
guard using the short screw in the front of the container. Once the bean hopper container has been
reinstalled, rotate each knob through the full range of motion. The grinder knob should rotate from (0) to
(18) and back, and the doser knob from the minus symbol (-) to plus symbol (+) and back.
Place the grinder adjustment knob at the eight (8) position and place the doser knob at the halfway
point between the plus symbol (+) and the minus symbol (-) symbol, or to your preferred settings.

Saeco De Luxe Coarse Grind


You could have knocked it out of its shaft or worse, Cracked the shaft itself.

Settings could be off too, It fairly common. Recheck the chamber, and make sure the plastic casing isn't cracked and the grinder doesn't wabble at all. It should be fairly firm.

If it isn't firm, bad news, cracked shaft.
