Set the grinder to its courses setting.

there are 2 screws.

a rubber fitting is under the plastic compartment.

before moving anything. mark where that setting is. Then turn it until either the blue lines or the red lines are next to eachother.

you'll know you did it right because the top burr with come off easily.

Clean it out with a vac carefully.

slap it back on, turn back to the market setting and replace adjuster arm (be careful, it can break easily).

Should be good to go at that point.

I usually recommend it being brought in for service due to the grinder being extrodinarily pissy and you can accidentally knock it out of its shaft.

HOW DO I CHANGE THE GRINDING MECHANISM ON MY SPIDEM TREVI EXCLUSSIVE ESPRESSO MACHINE. I HEAR THE MACHINE GRINDING BUT IT'S REALLY NOT DOING ANYTHING. ANY SUGGESTIONS


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.

Tip

Fix Saeco Magic De Luxe Not Grinding problem


If you leave the machine for a while, the residual ground beans in the grinder stick and clog the grinder.
- thus "timing out" with the "No beans" light.

After taking apart the grinder and cleaning it out, it still didn't grind. -
Then we ran some ground beans through it a couple of times, and then put fresh whole beans on top of the preground, and it took.

Worked great after that.

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.

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.

My Jura S9's grinding unit clogged (due to Peete's beans)


Usually water in the grounds container is caused by the coffee solenoid valve return side being blocked from dry coffee. Using cleaning tubelets to clean the coffee grounds out. If that doesn't work then you should remove the solenoid and clean it out with warm water. If that still doesn't rid you of the wet grinds you should have a certified repair tech take a look at it. You may end up having to replace the solenoid but that should be verified by a tech before you spend the money.

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).

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.

Coffee beans will not grind


Your machine will probably need service. The water will cause damage to the grinder burrs.  I can send you instruction on how to clean out the grinder on a Vienna if you provide me will your email address. You can email me at support@cerinicoffee.com.

 

You are not the first person to do this. These problems come in at least once a week.

 

Hope this helps.

Help....we poured some water into the bean grinder/container


Hi,

You have to take off the bean hopper, turn the ring on grinder anticlockwise to you see the claque. Take out the middle off the grinder and clean everything carefully.

After that you have to put it back again, when you have the middle off the grinder back you turn the ring clockwise to the end, after that you turn it anticlockwise 14 "tick".
