Question about Saeco Vienna SuperAutomatica Coffee Maker/Espresso Machine

When the espresso is grinding, it appears to be grinding continuously and will then stop and the light will come on as if the hopper is empty, even when it is filled with coffee beans.

Turn the big knob in the bean hopper to the largest #. If it works, on the second try turn the knob back down to a #, higher that you had before, but only turn the knob when it is grinding.

Hi my breville barista express does not grind the beans, and the "single/double" light is blinking, what is the problem?


My wife tried to make my coffee and long story short, she removed the lid to "move the beans around"..The grinder stopped working and the filter size lights began flashing intermittently. After taking the whole thing apart, the only REAL problem is that the lock mechanism inside the hopper came unlocked. So put your machine back together and "lock" the hopper. The lights will stop flashing...lets hope

On my saeco incanto I get a red light showing no coffee but there is coffee.I'd be much obliged if you have any ideas Regards Frank


HI

Grinder adjustment set too low. Increase the setting to 18 and try again, after it grinds and starts to brew push the brew to stop the cycle. Repeat the steps again. If it works when it is grinding turn the big knob back down but to a mark 2 higher than you had it before. When the grind gets to fine the ground coffee compacts in the grinder and passage way then you get the message bean hopper empty. Making the grind a little coarser prevents the grinds from compaction. If you are using oily beans (Shiney) they can glue themselves together and cause the same symptoms but the fix is the same. Make it coarser. If it didn't fix the problem you will have to dissassemble the grinder and clean, then readjust.bansheracer_14.jpg

Grinder does not stop


I need more information to solve this.

If you mean the grinder just spins but doesn't seem to be grinding anything - and then after 30 seconds or so it tells you the bean hopper is empty - then the problem is sticky, oily beans that aren't sliding down into the grinder.

You want to buy freshly roasted (roasted less than a week ago) beans. Coffee beans from the supermarket are old, stale and sticky with rancid oil. Even Starbucks and Peets - although the sign says "roasted daily" if you read the fine print, the beans in the store are rotated out 90 days after roasting. The oils turn rancid and get sticky after a couple of weeks so you really need to get beans from a local roaster or order them from a roaster who ships them fresh.

I have been using RedBird espresso blend and these beans work perfectly with this machine. They also are the best tasting of any espresso blend I've ever tried. The price is reasonable (cheap even) and the roast date is written on the bag. I get my beans 2 days after they were roasted.

In the meantime, until you get some coffee beans that are not oily, you can stir the beans in the hopper. Use a wooden coffee stirring stick or a chopstick and just lift the hopper lid and stir the beans so they slide down into the grinder. You will probably have to do this before each coffee and maybe even 2-3 times just to get one coffee.

Once you get some fresh roasted beans that don't have that oily shine to them you will be grinding without any problems.

My Jura Ena gives a 'fill beans' message even though the hopper is full and it won't grind the beans even though it seems to be operating. Help.


Mine just started doing the same thing. I've always only used plain espresso beans. Only thing is I may have overfilled the hopper and packed the beans down a bit. How can I make it start grinding again?

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.

Coffee beans don't grind even though there are beans in the hopper. Message: empty coffee beans. Grinder turns, but doesn't sound like the beans are going through.


Sounds like you have a blockage in you grind passage. Try removing the brew group. Then inside on the roof of the machine where the brew unit was setting there is a drop chute where the coffee is dropped into the brew unit. From the left side of the drop chute pull down and back, and it will drop coffee. This will clear an opening that relieves pressure on the passage. There is a passage inside the drop chute area that goes to the grinder. Vacuum it out. It will be on the right side of the drop chute.
Once that is cleared go to the bean hopper. There is a lever on the right side of the bean hopper. Push the lever back to the largest number. You can push the lever to a larger number any time but it has to be grinding to pull to a smaller number. Now replace everything and make your coffee. Once you have made your coffee you can pull back to a number that was higher than the one you had it on, but only when the grinder is running.

Incanto de Luxe always tells me there are no beans in container


I do have the same problem.

I have removed and cleaned the grinder mechanism.

Being an electronic technician I did have a look and tried to find what method they use to detect that the new beans reservoir is empty and I did not see any kind of detector.

I suspect that they monitor the motor current to do this. If it is so would'n it be possible to desable this fonction since it is more then evident when the reservoir is empty or about to be?

Any body knows how they do monitor the status of the new beans reservoir?

Bean hopper is full, grinder is grinding...but NO COFFEE!


Sometimes the chamber between the grinder and brewer will clog up. Try: Open the grind all the way up to the highest number. Push the grind button and while grinding move the dose knob (the one with the + - sign toward minus. If it does not kick in and dose try it again. If it does take off then leave it on the high number for 3 coffees. Then while the grinder is turning move the two knobs back to whre they were. If this does not work you can reomve the brew unit and right above where it sits in the machine there is a trap door that you can open. Open it and shove someting like a straw up toward the grinder and you should get a bunch of grounds droppiing down. Then try the above procedure a couple more times. If this does not work you may need to google "Saeco repair" and send it to an authorized repair center.
