Better late than never. just looking for an answer of my own for another problem.
you need to trouble shoot the possible problems from start to finish, so let me help.
once the beans are ground, they fall into a pre-staging area, which has a pressure switch to tell the machine when enough powder has been ground. since it stops grinding, the switch must be working, but how long does it grind the beans. if it's only real short, then you have a blockage in this pre-staging area, which is not allowing the coffee to flow into the brew unit, when the 'trap door' opens. It's tricky to reach, but with the brew unit removed, you can poke at it carefully and pry open the trap door.
2. do you hear the brew unit moving after the coffee is ground? it must move into position, otherwise the water that is being sucked will simply empty into the waste tray. is that where it's going? it must go somewhere and hopefully not inside the machines inner workings.
3. Did you try using the P setting, for powder coffee in the external port? Using the P button without any powder will cycle the machine with just water, which is good for cleaning it out and testing. Maybe someone dropped something hard into the P funnel, or put beans in there, which could really block things.
4. the previous answer about the grind being too fine or coarse is NOT going to cause this problem. Assuming you get too fine a grind or too much coffee dosed out, then the machine will cycle, you will hear the pump pumping, but very, very little water will flow out. the machine will attempt to pump and pump for a good amount of time, but then give up and dump the charge. If it is too coarse, you simply get a watery, non foaming charge of coffee.
5. next question. is anything getting dumped into the waste bin? coffee, just water? the more I think about it, I think your brew unit is stuck or not cycling correctly. complicated to solve like this.

If you decide to trash the machine, please let me get it for parts for my old machine! I'll pay for shipping, of course. email me at stephen@muc.de (located in CA, USA).
thanks, stephen

You might have a grinder issue. If the coffee is being ground too thin or too coarse it may cause an issue and no coffee will dispense. Here is the link to the grinder cleaning instructions: http://www.cerinicoffee.com/Saeco_technical_documents.asp

COFFEE COMES OUT TOO FAST


Try making your coffee a finer grind. The finer the grind of the beans, the slower the water will flow through the beans. Also fresher beans will make the water flow slower due to the moisture and oil content in the beans.

It does not do a full cup....I have gotten it to finish when starting over but now I cant get the water to run out at all...


With the coffee maker unplugged and an empty cup in place, I filled the reservoir with filtered water and with a short length of flexible plastic tubing I blew in to the small hole in the bottom of the reservoir. I did this 4 or 5 times sucking some water in to the tube to force it through the system. When I had finished there were a lot of grounds in the cup and the next time I used the coffee maker it worked perfectly.

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.

How many tablespoons of ground coffee are needed per cup of water in the Smart Brew coffee maker?


For ground coffee, use 1-1/2 (one and one-half) tablespoons of beans per 6 ounces of water.

For whole bean coffee, use two tablespoons of beans per 6 ounces of water.

Coffee strength is a very personal preference, so use these numbers as a guideline for middle-of-the-road coffee, and adjust to make the coffee that you like to drink.

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

Cuisinart 12-cup grinder coffemaker all gummed up


It is endemic to this unit - condensation builds up in the grind chute, which makes the grinds stick to the walls of the chute. Decalcifying with vinegar/water helps, but only in an indirect way - by keeping the inside tubing clean, decalcifying generally allows the water to flow through the machine without obstruction. Inside tubing that has calcium, lime deposits built up obstructs water, and makes it flow through the machine slower - when water flows more slowly through the machine, the machine steams off the water at a higher rate, hence more condensation builds up in the grind chute walls.

Generally, i have found all Cuisinart coffee and espresso makers to be high maintenance to a greater or lesser extent, but the Grind-n-Brews have the highest cleaning/maintenance requirement.

Brand New Incanto, Grinder Doesn't Work


Hi,

If you look at the adjustment knob in the bean hopper, make sure it is in the middle i think it will be "8".
Make sure you not get any damp into the grinder.

Try to make 2-3 cup of coffee.

Let me know if i can help you more

Best regards

Cuisinart Grind & Brew not using all the water in the reservoir


I was having problems like this and then I read on a different string on this website that people have had success by flushing the system numerous times (sometimes up to six times) with vinegar. I took out the charcoal filter and flushed once with vinegar but only saw a small amount of improvement. I was out of vinegar so I used Lemishine mixed with water and it went from making one cup to making a full pot with one flush.
