Question about Saeco Odea Giro Plus Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Used grounds are very wet (soupy). It almost appears that an insufficient amount of coffee is being distributed into the brew group. Also machine requests to empty waste drawers only after two or three pulls. If I operate the machine with the waste panel open (tricking the system with a magnet) and liquid seems to drip out the bottom of the brew group, at least at the start of the preparation cycle.

    The problem is the beans and the time of year. Very dark roast coffee (like many espresso and Italian roasts) is very oily add high humidity in the summer time and grounds are soupy. If you change to a medium or light roast the problem disappears. Also drying the beans (leaving them in the open air rather than a sealed container) may help as well. A good test is to run a pound or two of a nice Kona medium roast through the machine. Hey, even if the grounds are still wet you'll drink some great coffee! Seriously, this problem disappears during the winter in mid-America even with the dark roasts.

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. 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.

Saeco taleo grounds are very wet - almost fluid! this hase started recently when i changed my beans. i have changed the grind to course but with no effect. any ideas?

Try adjusting the amount of coffee and then the grind to finer. If there is not enough coffee in the chamber then it gets over extracted and you get a soupy puck at discharge, if the grind is too coarse, you might also get the same result. Think of your coffee grind as rocks and sand and that will give you a better feel for the proper setting for your machine.

Water coming from machine when brewing coffee water looks like coffee, brown in color and appears to be coming from brew group area. i have a saeco odea go machine. well maintained

there is excess water that comes from the injector when the brew group disinguages it. make sure the path is clear of coffee grounds in such. Some other things to check are the conditions of thr o-rings there are to 2 on thr injector inside the machine and one on the brew group if there damaged at all they will leak.

Is my "brew group" broken.

Remove the brew unit, under the white plastic valve you will notice a small chamber that might be filled with coffee grounds and water. Clean chamber.

No Coffee dispenses

That is exactly what I would've suggested, the brew unit is clogged. remove brew unit and try to blow through the top, if you get through then check the bottom. One of the chambers must be clogged. Another question is the coffee extract wet or dry grounds?
If wet then the block is on the top, if dry it ids on the bottom.

The grounds are sloshy and the coffee is weak - I think that the coffee is leaking out as the hot water is being pumped through the ground beans

I think I have the answer to this: when mine started doing the same thing, I found that coffee grounds had accumulated and were blocking the seal of the water supply with the brew-group.
The Behind the brew-group is a clear tube with o-rings that slides into the brew group to supply water. One or both of these is clogged with accumulated coffee grounds. Try cleaning out both well.
