I own a Saeco Incanto Deluxe. It employs the ceramic grinder that has worked flawlessly for 3-4 years. One day it stopped and "Grinder Blocked" appeared. I removed the entire grinder unit, cleaned it thoroughly and calibrated the grinder. This did not fix the problem. After many similar attempts, I found the entire grinder assembly (motor, grinder etc.) online for $149.00. Install of the new assembly took me five minutes and it works perfectly. Please note that the ceramic grinding blades (there are two round ones that must be aligned corrrectly) cost $40 a piece (same site where I found the entire assembly for $149). My suggestion--save yourself the agony and replace the assembly if cleaning and calibration fails.

Saeco incanto says brew unit blocked


The message is likely generated because your grinder burr disk is ether stuck or turning too slow.. If you're a handy person, you can open up the casing, access the grinder assembly and clean it. If your grinder is clean and you still the message, may be the rotation pick connector got loose (it's the one with the 2 small black wires) or iss defective.

My Saeco Royal Professional won't grind: "blocked grinder" message


Hello, I had exactly the same problem. In my case, it seems that the grinder was not ejecting the grounds into the doser with enough force to move the pressure plate and trigger the microswitch. My grinder motor might be wearing out, but I decided to try increasing the sensitivity of the microswitch before I spent so much. I replaced the microswitch, but that didn't solve the problem. Instead, I added a spacer (~2mm, but you'll have to play with it to adjust the pressure for your switch) between the doser pressure plate lever arm and the microswitch. That has been working very well for the last month. Very occasionally I get the same message again, but if I tell it to brew again the second grinding succeeds. I hope this helps!

I got the replacement microswitch at http://www.saecoparts.com/

Hi...Grinder blocked message is ..when you make coffee there is no current going into the grinder. In other words the grinder motor is blown(coil windings in the motor is blown). You have to replace the motor. The problem is common with Gaggia, Talea, Odea coffee machines. hope your machine is less than 2 years old to get fix under warranty.

Grinder blocked


One posible problem is the coffee shute. This is leading aslo to the passage where you put the grinded coffee and cleaning tablets. This might have be clocked from dry coffee mixed with humitity or steam. So you can use a bending brush similar to the one used to clean babes milk bottles and at the same time vacum with air vacum cleaner.
You can make perfect cleaning if you remove the top platic panel and visual check that everything are perfectly cleaned.
The last thing that is possible for the problem is weak ginder motor which have lost its power so it can grinds but not have the power to push the grinded coffee all the way through chute to the coffee group. In this case you will need new grinder motor.
Hope that this can help you, good luck.

New grind and display shows "grinder blocked"


This normally indicates due to the grinder being set too fine or oily beans being used.
Try setting the grind on 7 .
If it still fails the grinder will need to be unblocked and serviced.

'Grinder Blocked' error message


The grounds chamber is clogged, you will have to open the machine and clean out the chamber on the side of the grinder, it is the one covered with the little door, you might be able to get to it if you dremove the brew unit.
