    I feel this is probably an electrical problem.

Seems like the heating element of your unit is not working. There can be a few reasons for it.

1. The heating element has been disconnected form its power source.
2. the heating element is faulty in itself.

I f you have warranty on this item you should better claim it.

Probably clogged up. Add a few ounces of lenon juice into it and let stand over night. Add one cup of water to it in the morning and turn on
The lemon juice will remove the scaling in the tubing of this coffee maker

Saeco odea does not brew. coffee beans will grind, then coffee maker will start flashing all lights, and ground coffee will spit out without brewing. when i change beans to more oily ones, it works without...


Hi...Keep on grinding until the Auto Dosing System readjust the amount of grind to be in the optimum. Normally it takes 3 to 4 grinds. Whenever we change the type of beans, this condition happens, it is not a problem.

Fault F 17 appears when in use. Starts grinding the beans but no coffee in the cup yet. What does F17 mean?


f 17 is no water flow. It usually occurs when the brew unit has not been cleaned regularly, when the coffee grind size is set too fine, or when oily beans are used. You can try to soak the brew unit in hot water for a while, and run water through it in the sink. Unfortunately, most cases require brew unit replacement. A properly cleaned and maintained brew unit should last the life of the machine.

Will grind the coffee beans but no water passing


Either the grind is too fine or the brew unit is blocked at the screen.

The grind switch is stuck. Try to free it and clean it.

Machine shuts off after beans are ground & sometimes when pot is 1/4 full



You have not missed anything. Unplugging for longer than 16 minutes (has 15-minute memory) is the only troubleshooting you can perform. Call Cuisinart to find out if you are still in warranty. Serial number is engraved onto the very bottom of the coffee maker - hard to read. All electronics have a failure rate. Cuisinart's is acceptably low, but their coffee makers are the least reliable of all their products. The basic problem with electronic coffee makers is that coffee makers produce high heat, and high heat kills electronics and melts plastic. At least Cuisinart has a 3-year warranty - higher than the industry standard.

Let me put it another way. All coffee makers have a high failure rate. As many Cuisinart coffee makers that break down, the non-Grind-and-Brews still have a 91 rating from Consumer Reports. Consumer Reports doesn't give ANYTHING a 91 rating. A lot break, but you probably won't fare much better by switching to a different brand. The problem with a Cuisinart breaking down is that an expensive unit broke down - you wouldn't be upset if your $15 Mr. Coffee broke every year. The law of averages is on your side - a 2nd Cuisinart will probably last longer.
