Question about Vacuums

1 Answer

Saeco Odea Giro pumps the water but the internal spline or gear is not turning moving the ground coffee grinds to the point where the water can pump to the front exit lines so the water is pumped into the over flow resevoir. How do I replace the gear or check to make sure this is the problem. I want to replace this myself.. Also how do I get the unit apart it seems to be bullet proof. Is this a common problem.

    The typical process is this. Grinds the coffer at the upper coffee grinder, the ground coffee is moved to the the staging part where the machine then turns the internal spline or gear that is connected to the component of the machine that moves the ground coffee up to where the water runs through it, at this point in the upper position the water path is from the water container to the heater, then through the coffer and then into the connector that then runs to the exit of the machine where it goes into the cup. My issue is the gear is not actuating or turning to move the ground coffee up to the point where the water can run through it and the water path when it does not raise is to the overflow chamber. Everything seems to work fine and the water flow is good so its not not needing to be descaled. How do I remove the gear and replace the gear or spline or get it to re engage when it is suppose to?

It is a common problem if it is what I think it is. However your description is a little confusing. So the coffee does get ground up, but then has a hard time getting to the next stage of the process? Please clarify... And no water gets pumped through the normal direction, it all goes to the overflow?

Thanks Tim

    Yes I am definitely familiar with the process, just couldn't tell where yours was having the issue. That is exactly what I suspected though.



    Unfortunately you are correct on the bullet proof front. These machines are not made to be taken apart that's for sure, they have to basically crack it open to get into it. You are going to want to get this machine serviced unless you want to just buy another one, and seeing as I'm sure you paid over $400 for this unit I am sure you want it to keep running. Luckily there is an alternative to sending it to Saeco for service. You are going to want to contact aLatteHotte at 1-800-961-9416 and they are still open for another 2 hours today so give them a call right now to see what they estimate the repair to cost, I think you will be surprised, they are usually pretty reasonable and have great service. If you were to attempt the repair yourself I can almost guarantee it would damage the machine more and would not be worth it by any stretch. It was just luck of the draw that you got one that had a "weak" coffee puck lever in there...



    Thanks,

    Tim

I have a one cup at a time Keurig. I measure the water and pour in then Kcup coffee. I shut the covers and press brew. The coffee maker starts to heat the water but then will not pump the water through...


I have one too. Had the same problem and needed a new clean Kcup. The oil residue build up wasn't allowing the coffee to pass through. Some models also have internal filters. Bed Bath Beyond has all the replacement parts and lists the units by Model on the part. Hope this helps.

Saeco Grind and Brew model IDR 008 TG first the grounds were backing up and door not opening to go into basket, cleaned the dispenser per directions.. now the beans do not even grind at all nothing is...


Your grinder needs cleaning- maybe oily beans got used and/or storing beans in refrig/freezer? Both are a problem for grinder. Also, grinder should not be set to "fine"- it will definitely cause clogging and the situation you point out. ----------- The powder from the coffee grounds seems to get caked in the grinder. The only way to get it out is to run hot water into the little opening where the grounds funnel into the filter basket. --------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Coffee maker won't work. says it needs to be de-scaled.


De-scaling is normally done through the use of vinegar. I prefer the white vinegar myself. This is simple. Instead of water, place a quart of vinegar in your water tank and no coffee grounds in the basket. Start the cycle. When it is all done, repeat with ordinary clear water, again no grounds in the basket. When this cycle is completed. if yours is a integrated tank, turn the coffee maker up side down to remove all liquid. Refill and enjoy your freshly de-scaled coffee maker.

Presto - de-scaled.

I trust you will find this solution adequate. Thank you for your interest in FixYa.com

We have a saeco royal coffee machine and the dredgedraw has excessive water normally ground coffee is dry , how do we fix it??


its a great coffee machine, isnt it? we have it in the office serving for 7 years now.
this usally means one of the seal is broken. get the saeco person to replace all the seals at once.
this will prevent more leakages in the future.

When i make a cup of coffee with my kuerig coffee maker my coffee is coming out with coffee grinds though it. how can i fix this problem?


Your coffe may be ground too finely for your maker.

Is your coffee maker flat-bottom or cone shaped? Or is it a french press?
Your coffee needs to be ground according to the brewing method. Too coarse and it will be watery, too fine and it will be too dark, or you might get grounds.

Water pump grinds but no water is being extracted from the resevoir and flowing through the coffee basket


You could have a clogged water hose, or you might have a clog where the water enters the coffee filter area.
One easy solution would be to look inside your pot and check it. If you think you see a clog, remove it with hot water. You may need to also use a very small, thin bottle brush to get into the tube of your pot to clean it out.

To avoid any clog problems in the future, you should fill your coffeepot with cold water and about 2 tablespoons of regular white vinegar. Put a clean coffee filter in the basket. Then let it run thru a normal coffee cycle. You can repeat this several times if necessary.
After the last time you run the vinegar solution thru, run plain water thru it a few times too.
Your problem should be solved. If not...your going to have to either contact your manufacturer, or just go out and buy a new coffee pot.
But the next time you get a new coffee pot, use the cleaning hints they tell you to use, and be vigilant about it. I have never had a clogged coffee pot because I do this.
It isn't very obvious, but if your coffee starts to taste bad, or your water starts to spit when you brew, your pot may be due for a cleaning. I clean mine about every 3 to 4 months, after daily use.

No water


check the pump belt that runs from the brushroll to the pump. frequently the plastic gear on the pump wears out. the pumps also frequently fail. check all solution supply lines for cloggs, and most importantly check the spray nozzles inside the unit by the brushes for cloggs. let me know if you need any further instructions. thanks,

I have a Saeco Armonia Espresso Machine. The water pump was running when the tank ran out of water and when I refilled the tank, it wouldn't start again. I unpugged it and turned everything off overnight....


Common on Armonia...
There is no water in the system, so the pump is pumping air!!
you have to push on the usual button but make sure the hot water button (for tea for ex) on the right side (same as steam opening valve) of the machine is open. This will allow the water to re-flow through the system. Once water is coming out again, close hose, and stop water button. Once hose is closed, and you repush the water button, it will flow again through the coffee hole.
Voila
