    I have the same problem with mine. All the lights were rotating indicating an issue with the brew unit. So, I took it out and cleaned it but can't get it back in now. I thought your suggestion woudl work mirran, but no luck.

    It definitely has something to do with the cranking mechanism not meshing.

    I have to prime the pump and water after the brewing as it does not brew the correct amount of coffee any longer.

try to put in the dregbox to the machine, close the door and power on the machine. When the machine not make any noise, open the door and put in the brew group.

    Thank you so much! I just had the same problem after cleaning the brew group, and the suggested solution seems to have worked perfectly. Now to taste the coffee....good crema, nice aroma, delicious.

    My 6 month old Odea Giro brew group got stuck too after a routine rinse. I found similar issue here on fixya and tried the switching on with only dreg tray followed by brew group insertion method above.

    I confirm the above method works.

I voted "no" it didn't help and then tried 2 more times. It's now working again. Thank you, Mirran!

Why are the used grinding pads on my saeco odeo giro very loose and watery

I can personally confirm this fix from another similar question works: "I throughly cleaned and lubricated the brew group as directed by the manual. Apparently if the brew group doesn't move smoothly enough, it won't grind the correct amount of beans. Try lubricating and then brewing 2-3 cups to have the machine recalibrate the grind amount." My manual didn't have very good info about lubricating the brew group, so I referred to some Youtube videos demonstrating the methods. A sourced a 3rd party food safe lubricant from Amazon which I applied with Q-tips, but in retrospect they also sell Saeco "maintenance kits" which would have been cheaper & easier to apply, plus it includes a new O-ring.

Coffee grinds but nothing comes out of dispensing head. Brew group wont come out.

I have the exact same problem and haven't found any replies to your request. Did you finally find a solution to the problem? Thanks

The brew group is stuck and will not come out

I hope one of this two solutions solve your problem.

1- The brew group is out of place. Turn the machine on. Close the service door.
The brew group is automatically placed in the correct position.

2-Coffee grounds drawer is inserted. Remove the dregdrawer first, then the brew

I have a Saeco Odea Go and my puck in the dreg drawer are really wet and I have water leaking (brown so with coffee) under the dreg drawer. how I can fix it ?

I recently had this problem. I throughly cleaned and lubricated the brew group as directed by the manual.

We have an Odea Giro in the office. When we got it I remember the coffee tasted amazing. After few months the taste started to decline and after some time we stopped to use it altogether. I wanted to...

you are supposed to go through the "before first use" instructions....which include filling the resevoir with water and brewing only water until its all gone. then start using the machine normally...remembering that the machine takes a few brew cycles to adjust properly to the coffee being used (this assuming this is the giro plus model which has the feature-"aroma something or other...)

also, descaling would help and removing the brew group and rinsing it out...

Hi, I have a saeco odea giro plus that has just started to leak nearly all of the brewed coffee into the dreg drawer! Any ideas? thanks in advance...

I had a crack in the tube that connected to the brew group that resulted in a similar dumping of coffee in the dregs (and below the dreg drawer and onto the counter) in my Saeco Odea Giro. Replacing the "Saeco Odea Giro Coffee Dispensing Tube, part number 11003468, fixed my problem. You can replace this yourself if you are very handy. These photos are very helpful (The Go seems pretty similar to the Giro.)

Cannot reinstall the brew group after cleaning.

If you can remove the brew group easily, it should go back in easily. Make sure the brew group is in neutral position(2 arrows pointed to each other) and the latch behind the unit is in the top position.

Saeco Odea Giro - Clogged and coffee come out in water tray....

This has happened to our machine that we use for our youth group. We sent it in and they said it was clogged also. Not having a clue what they meant. It happened again and I figured it out. When you remove the brew group there is a hole just above it that dispenses into the brew group. Make sure it is not clogged. Give it a try Good Luck
