Re: How do you take apart the grinder on Saeco Spidem...
There should be screws on the side or the bottom of the unit that will allow you to pull it apart. The problem seems to be that the two grinding wheels have gone bad and needs to be replaced. On this unit you cannot adjust the grinding as far as would need to be to fix the problem when the teeth get to small

Make sure that your brew unit is clean and lubricated. The CPU on the machine uses the brew unit to calculate the amount of coffee it grinds. If the brew unit is dirty and hard to turn strange things will happen.
Sorry but that doesn't make sence. The grind chamber has to be full inorder for the doser to activate, unless you have an oiley bean and it has hardened inside the doser.
Try removing the brew group. Then inside on the roof of the machine above where the brew unit sat, there is a drop chute where the coffee is dropped into the brew unit. From the left side of the drop chute pull down and back, and it should drop coffee. This should clear the opening that relieves pressure on the passage. There is a passage inside the drop chute area that goes to the grinder. Vacuum it out. It will be on the right side of the drop chute.
Once that is cleared go to the bean hopper. There is a lever under the bean hopper. Push the lever back to the largest number. You can push the lever to a larger number any time, but it has to be grinding to pull to a smaller number. Now replace everything and make your coffee. Once you have made your coffee you can pull back to a number that was higher than the one you had it on, but only when the grinder is running.
You can try to udjust the grinder one step + to more gross coffee. With this the water can run faster through the grounded coffee. However you nust count the time since the corect time is about 25 sec.
If the grinding adjustment can not make any cange then you need clean the shower which is on the coffee group since it might be full of dry coffee blocking the way of the water passing by.
HI There are more than a few things that can cause weak coffee. Grind is too coarse. It should look like coarse sugar. You cleaned the brew unit and left a part out or put it in incorrectly. Grind adjustment is set too high. Turn to a lower # while the grinder is operating. Grinder is been taken apart and not put back together correctly. Grinder is broken and the grinds are just big chunks.
