Saeco Incanto Classic - Bean feed problem

Hi

My incanto classic is 2 years old. The add bean light comes on when I try and make a coffee. The grinder goes on but no coffee comes out and some ground coffee goes into the dreg drawer. I found in the past if I moved the beans around while the grinding started it did help a little and a coffee was made. Now I do this about 6 times and no good. Help please Mirran

Hi,

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.

Hope this will help you.

Best regards
/Mirran

On my saeco incanto I get a red light showing no coffee but there is coffee.I'd be much obliged if you have any ideas Regards Frank


HI

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.bansheracer_14.jpg

The light comes on for two reasons. One is out of beans - the other is coffee cake thing is full. Sometimes the brewing device ( that big thing inside the door) will have a bit of coffee cake in it. Just take it out ( Squeeze tab and slide out) and rinse in sink. place back in. Very common issue so get comfortable with sliding this thing out to clean

Vac out the bean chamber, then remove the 2 or 3 screws and carefully lift the bean hopper off the machine, then continue cleaning the grinder, careful not to lose the gasket around the top of the grinder. When done reassemble and try to brew but do not add beans to hopper as yet. Until you are sure all the plastic pieces are out.

My bean light won't stop blinking red!


Hi
Turn you big knob in the bean hopper up all the way to the largest #, then try again. If it clears the and makes a coffee do it 1 more time then turn the big knob back down while the grinder is running but don't turn it down as far as you had it before,(1 to 2# higher)

Saeco Incanto Classic - Bean feed problem


Hi Zlatko,

Ok, i get wrong answer to you. I did a mistake with the model:-(

Yes, you have only one screw in the beanhopper, and to get this cleand you have to take off the top.

This grinder you have to turn anticlockwise to the claque is free you can take it out and clean.

When you put it back you have to turn it so the red mark is together.

If you make a cup of coffe and it grind but not take in water then you have to mount a resistance on the power board.

What serial number do you have on the machine?

Incanto-classic coffee beans do not flow to grinder


The machine automatically stir the beans since the blade make vibration and doing that shake the bean all around.Make sure the the tank is half full so the weight will help on that.If the container is almost empty the bean will fly around and don`t get in the grinder.Back up the machine to the original factory grinding and try to adjust again the wheel
