My coffee comes out at times as watter with a dark film. The grounds are on the brewing unit and not in the used grounds container. What is my problem? Could it be the type of coffee I am using?

Hi
I would say that you don't have enough coffee grounds going into the brew unit. There should be an adjustment in your bean hopper or infront of your brew unit that has a + or - mark. That needs to be truned towards the + side but not all the way. Bring it back 1 mark and try that. Also what is the big knob in the bean hopper set on? It should be in the middle #'s, not towards the large #"s.

Waste unit is stuck and I can not remove it


The standard instructions are ... remove the waste container, water container & ground coffee container. On the front of the Brew Unit is a vertical black lever with a grey press button at bottom. Press this button and turn the lever clockwise. Then press the release catch that holds the brew unit as base and pull the brew unit. If Brew Unit is still stuck then its likely that the Unit State is not in the 'home position' and if this has occurred then its likely that that an error code would be showing. Regards

I put ground coffee and it doesnt come out only water.. is it my brewing unit ??


If you are putting the ground coffee into the little override container for decaf coffee I had the same problem because I was using a bit too much ground coffee so it dumped it out rather than making a cup. Once I ensured that I was using one level scoop only, not more, it worked.

My solis 5000 is making a grinding sound and I have tried to reset the machine with no succes


Sometimes the grinder has grounds "jamed" in the coffee grinder outlet. First, while grinding try turning the "quantity dial" (has + and - on dial inside coffee bean holder) back and forth to see if that breaks the coffee loose. Next, Use a small brush to clean the coffee grounds channel inside the machine. To do this, remove the brewing section, liquid tray, and spend grounds holder. On upper portion of machine, just above the area where the brewing unit is a small "trap door" where coffee grounds are delivered to the brewing unit. slip the "trap door" open (it's spring loaded so you will need to hold it open) and with a small brush gently brush the accumulated grounds out of the channel. (There may be a large accumulation of grounds if you are using dark roasted "oily" coffee. Good luck! hope this works for you

No coffee, water going to the drip tray


OK, so this is a problem with your brew unit. The unit is not cycling correctly to tell the water to come through.

We had another problem like this just this week.

The wat we fixed it was 1) Give the Brew Unit a really good clean. 2)Make sure the Brew Unit can complete a cycle - manually rotate the brew unit components through a cycle 3) Lubricate the Brew Units moving parts if necessary using some Saeco or Other Food Grade Lubricant

Then try watch a complete coffee cycle by leaving the side door of your machine open, and tricking the micro switches into thinking the door is closed by engaging them with some card or something similar.

Let us know if this does not resolve your issue.

Slow water drip


First of all it depends on the hardness of the water. Vinegar doesn't really work in the heavy lime belt area of the midwest. It is better if you use lime away. It is an ecolab product that is great at lime removal. Use one cup per pot. Then rinse two pots worth if this is the kind of machine that uses the same water that is put in during each brew cycle. Some brewers have a reservoir. Bunnomatic is an example of that kind of brewer. If you use lime away in that kind of brewer you need to run about thirty pots to remove all the lime scale remover from the brewer. Slow brewing can also be caused by over softened water. I drove from Indy to Iowa after installing a brewer and then a day later the store put in a softener and over softened the water causing the coffee filter to clog up with sodium. Also check the sprayer disc or head where the water comes out. Over time coffee "paste" will build up around the outlet and if you don't wipe it clean or "smear" the coffee grounds around the outlet that will slow down the brewing cycle. I have thirty years as a brewer technician and it is usually one of the things I have covered, providing that the heat element isn't defective.

I think you use too fine grist on the grinder, or the coffeebeans are really dark and moisty. Try to set the grinder to a coarser grist, for dark roasted coffee it`s not recomended to to use any finer than medium grist. However, the sieve in the brewing unit could be clogged, and you need to clean this out. Put a finger up in the brew unit just along the grounds blade, you will probably find a lot of old fine coffeeground up the. Clean it up as best as possible, and then try to make coffee with coarser grist. If this helps, it`s smart to run a cleaning program to be on the safe side.

If nothing of this helps, you don`t have a choice, you have to send it for service, then the brew unit has to be dissasembled and cleaned from the inside.
