Magnifica S no water but sometimes has coffee?
The problem you are describing with your Magnifica S coffee machine, where it doesn't put out water when you turn it on to rinse, but sometimes outputs the coffee and other times just dumps it out into the tray, could be caused by a few different issues. Here are a few things you can check:
- Check the water tank: Make sure that the water tank is properly filled and that the water level is high enough for the machine to function properly.
- Check the water pump: Make sure that the water pump is functioning properly and that it is not blocked or clogged.
- Check the water lines and hoses: Make sure that the water lines and hoses are not clogged or blocked.
- Check the machine's settings: Make sure that the machine's settings are correctly configured.
- Check the machine's firmware: Make sure that your machine's firmware is up to date and that there is no error.
- Check the machine's grinder: Make sure that the grinder is not clogged and that the grind setting is set correctly for your beans.
If none of these steps resolve the issue, I would recommend contacting the manufacturer or a professional repair service for further assistance. They may be able to provide additional troubleshooting steps or may recommend a qualified technician to repair the unit.
Problem separating bulk salt or pepper corns container from the motor base on Trudeau Graviti mills
If you are having trouble separating the bulk salt or pepper container from the motor base on your Trudeau Graviti mill, there are a few things you can try to fix the problem:
- Make sure that the mill is unplugged and not in use.
- Carefully pull down the motor base from the container and rotate it counterclockwise as the instructions indicate.
- If the parts are still stuck together, make sure that the square shaft is properly aligned with the base. Sometimes the square shaft can become misaligned, preventing the parts from separating.
- Check the square shaft to ensure that it is not bent or damaged in any way. If the shaft is bent or damaged, it may not be able to rotate properly and the parts will not separate.
- Check for any debris or food particles that may be lodged in the connection between the container and the motor base. Clean the parts with a dry cloth and make sure that they are free of debris.
- If the issue still persists, you may want to consult the user manual for your mill. The manual should have specific instructions for separating the parts.
- If you do not have a manual, you may be able to find one online by searching for the model number of your mill.
- If you are still unable to separate the parts, you may need to contact the manufacturer customer service or a technician for assistance.

How do I test secondary boiler on Saeco Vienna Deluxe
It sounds like you are experiencing an issue with the secondary boiler on your Saeco Vienna Deluxe coffee machine. In order to test the secondary boiler, you will need to follow these steps:
- Remove the water tank and the brew group from the machine.
- Locate the secondary boiler. It is usually located in the back of the machine and is a small, cylindrical shape.
- Check the thermostat: Use an ohmmeter to check the resistance of the thermostat switch. If it is closed, the resistance should be very low (around 0 Ohm), if not, it could be the reason for the failure.
- Check the thermal fuse: Check the resistance of the thermal fuse with an ohmmeter. If the fuse is open, it will have a very high resistance (infinity)
- Check the heating element: Use the ohmmeter to check the resistance of the heating element. It should measure between 12-15 Ohms. If the resistance is outside of this range, the heating element may be faulty and will need to be replaced.
- Check the wiring: Check that all the wiring is properly connected, and that there is no damage or loose connections.
- Reassemble the machine: Once you have finished testing the components, reassemble the machine.
It's worth noting that if you are not familiar with the process of testing the components or if you find that the problem is more complex, I would recommend contacting a qualified technician or the manufacturer for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose and repair the issue with your coffee machine, and they can also give you an estimate of the cost of repair.
It's also worth mentioning that you should not test voltages of live unit out of its case, as it is dangerous and could cause damage to the machine or injury to yourself.
