Stopped up The coffee does not come into the cup. It dumps the coffee into the grounds bin.

    No coffee comes out of the coffee spout, it instead displays the message "FILL SYSTEM/PRESS STEAM". When you press the steam button hot water comes out of the steam nozzle, and dry ground coffee is deposited in the tray.
    The same thing happens when you attempt to rinse or clean the unit, instead of the water coming out the coffee spout as it's supposed to, the "FILL SYSTEM/PRESS STEAM" message comes on, and when the stem button is pressed the water comes out the steam nozzle instead.

Keurig CoffeeBrewer not making a full cup of Coffee



My cuisinart burr coffee grinder will not turn on

This model sometime gets plugged up with grounds.

Unplug the grinder, and remove the bin where the grounds go. Look inside the grinder part where the grounds come from the grinder into the bin. This should be clear, and you should be able to see part of the grinder wheel inside. If this is plugged up with grounds, then you'll want to clean it out, but it's possible that the motor has already burned out (we killed two of them last year at my office this way)

Pour out any whole beans that are in the top part. You can pour them in a bowl to save them, you don't have to throw them away.

Unscrew the top part until it detaches from the grinder. This will take 20 or more rotations -- just keep turning it counter-clockwise.

You'll want to do this next part over a sink or a counter that's easy to clean -- you're going to dump a lot of ground coffee.

Looking into the grinder from the top, you'll see the grinding wheel in the center, and packed coffee grounds around the edges. Use a plastic knife or bamboo skewer to clean out the ground coffee. Don't use a screwdriver, metal silverware, or anything metal, as this can damage the grinder housing. You also want to clean from the bin opening. When you're done cleaning, the grinder wheel should turn freely.

Reattach the top portion, put the bin back in place, and turn the grinder on. It should turn on and spin the grinder wheel. If it still doesn't, then your motor is burned out. :(

If it does turn, then put the coffee beans back in and enjoy a cup -o- joe!


Grounds dry, non-pressed and jettisoned to bin. Pre-ground function fine. Otherwise, no coffe.

The solution to this Saeco Incanto Deluxe problem was simply tweaking the Program Menu settings. After receipt of the unit, I immediately set all settings to STRONG. This move proved to be a major complication because the machine could not compress the load of grounds being dumped into the brew unit. I responded by setting ALL coffee settings in the Program Menu to MILD and now only use the Large Coffee SBS setting for regular coffee (the coffee is still robust and delicious).. The expresso SBS setting and those SBS settings further to the left I use only with the small cup button. If I want a double I just do it twice. The machine was protecting the drive shaft and brew unit from damage by stopping the press and jettisoning the grounds when I had the machine programmed the other way. I hope this helps other owners.

When pushing button for a cup of coffee to be made - the beans are grinding and dumping in the box - however no water is coming thru to empty into my cup - the water is being dumped into the reservoir...

Dry grounds dumped.
There is a lever at the top of the door on the right side. Yours is actually inside the door on the machine. Pull the lever back 1 notch from the plus(+) . You are dumping too much coffee in the brew unit and it can not compress it, so it dumps it, or breaks the drive gears. Never push the lever all the way or it can cause this overcharge. Its fine if the brew group is clean but when you make coffee there is always a residue left and this is what causes the overcharge.


Ice maker stopped working

The laser , is supposed to blink . This laser , tells the icemaker to stop making ice , when the bin is full . Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the icemaker . If it doesn't dump the cubes into the bin , the icemaker is bad . Or , if there is ice in the bin , which hasn't dumped , the icemaker is bad . If the icemaker dumps the ice ( from water pour ) , then look above the fill cup , and see if the black fill tube is frozen . If so , then replace the water valve and turn the freezer temp down slightly . It will take several days for this fill line inside freezer to thaw . If icemaker dumps , and black tube NOT frozen , replace the water valve . The valve , is where the wall water line connects to on the refrig .

Mini brewer shuts off wont heat up wont make coffee Light goes off after cup is placed to catch coffee wont heat or make coffee

Gaggia Titanium dumps ground coffe inside unit

You have 2 knobs in the bean hopper. The small one is set to the most positive. Turn it back 1 click from the plus and that should take care of your problem. When you have a clean brew unit it will make the first coffee but a little coffee is left in the brew unit and when it tries to make the second coffee a full charge and the little that was left cause an over charge, and dumps the coffee without making anything.
