Hi: My Saeco Sirius Incanto will not grind any longer. The grinder makes a loud noise when attempting to gind beans. It also will not brew ground coffee. Is this something I can repair? I'm an electrician, and pretty good with tools. Thank you.

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.
Hi hope I'm not too late. But I vaccumed the bean grinder. Unscrew the grinder stem fully open/large grind, place vaccum hose over grinder, turn on vaccum it sucks out any loose 'hard' beans/rocks/stems. Srew down to desired grind and refill - worked for me.
I own a Saeco Incanto Deluxe. It employs the ceramic grinder that has worked flawlessly for 3-4 years. One day it stopped and "Grinder Blocked" appeared. I removed the entire grinder unit, cleaned it thoroughly and calibrated the grinder. This did not fix the problem. After many similar attempts, I found the entire grinder assembly (motor, grinder etc.) online for $149.00. Install of the new assembly took me five minutes and it works perfectly. Please note that the ceramic grinding blades (there are two round ones that must be aligned corrrectly) cost $40 a piece (same site where I found the entire assembly for $149). My suggestion--save yourself the agony and replace the assembly if cleaning and calibration fails.
First, make sure you not get any damp into your grinder. If you get damp into the grinder then it will not grind the beans.
To check the grinder you have to loosen the three screws in the beanhopper and lift it up. The jagged plastic in the machine you will see when the beanhopper is off, turn it anticlockwise to you can see the claque is free, then you can take out the jagged plastic and you will see the grinding wheel, make sure the wheel and the jagged plastic is clean.
Before you mount all again, use a vacuum cleaner to clean it.
Put back the jagged plastic again and turn it clockwise to it stop, then you turn it anti clockwise 14"click". Set the number to 8 on the beanhopper and mount it again.
