You need to open the machine which is easy see my other post on leaking krups xp7240. The grinder can be taken out by removing two torix screws. Probably the electical brushes are gone. Take the grinder engine to a repair shop where they replace them.

What do I do when coffee beans not getting to grinder


They cannot "not get to" the grinder, the hopper is mounted directly above the grinding teeth. The grinder is probably blocked and you will need to remover the housings and take out the grinder for cleaning and inspection. Most common cause of grinder blockage is dampness inside the housings from a leak somewhere inside the machine.

HI
It fits on top of the grinder and under the bean hopper. There are 4 ridges on the grinder that it fits on and seals the grinder to the bean hopper. Just remove the bean hopper and put the rubber piece on the top of the grinder.

HI
You can run more water through the same grind you are using now or you can trun the big knob in the bean hopper to a larger #. That will make the grind coarser. You can turn the knob to a larger # anytime but to turn it to a smaller # it has to be grinding or you will damage the grinder. If you have 2 knobs in the bean hopper, you can turn the small knob down towards the -(minus) and reduce the amount of coffee in the brew unit.

Ground coffee will not dispense


The beans are hanging up in the hopper and not falling down into the grinder...... wiggle it, give the beans a push, or go to a bean that is not so sticky....

Our Saeco Delux Magic coffee maker will not grind the coffee when we push the button. A light comes on that indicates that the grinder could be jammed.


Hi
The grinders run on a timer. If the grinders does not fill the doser in time you will get a light saying no beans. If this happens and there are beans in the hopper push the lever to the largest # and push the brew button again. This will clear the light and it should brew. If it is at the largest # already your beans are probably shiny and there is to much oil in the beans and this is what is clogging the grinder.

I have a 12 cup cusinart grind & brew. The hopper is not working


You may have to clean the grinder....even more. That happened to me once. First I cleaned out the coffeemaker with the brush, and "dug" out more coffee, then I used this product which you can find on Amazon: "Urnex Grindz Coffee Grinder Cleaner - Urnex 17-GRINDZ12-40." It's expensive, but it really worked well.

Krups XP7240 leaks


The grind selector knob can be removed with the following steps: 1) Remove screw on side near grinder (do not let the screw fall into grinder, :-) ), 2) use sharp knife or similar to pry off cover with three dots. This should be easy. 3) Now you can rotate the grind selector and see that the white clear plastic does not rotate and the black does. There are two little pieces (one black, one clear plastic) on opposite side from grinder that slide over eavh other to keep this knob 'locked' into place. 4) again with a sharp pointed knife or similar you can separate these two pieces to 'unlock' them. This is made easier by lifting the side of the bean holder by the grinder gently and tipping it up. Be careful not to force anything too much. The black part should pop off. 5) Now you can lift off the clear bean holder.

After this good luck. We made it farther into the machine, but could never get to where we needed to go to fix our problem.

Krups must be congratulated for designing a machine that cannot be repaired and must be replaced with new purchases.

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.
