Try cleaning the chute from the grinder to the basket. Coffee oils build up and plug the chute. I clean mine every 3 - 4 days and have had no problems.

Coffee beans setting too small


* Brand and model needed for specific solutions.
* Check your warranty. Call for support

*** Following is for information only.***
* Bean grinders have a dial in front or a dial near the bottom of the been funnel (or bean bin.)
* Dials usually have size settings and may even be marked for the style of coffee to brew.
* Some of the smaller grinders have a dial around the collar of the bean container that have numbers or arrows pointing to coarse or fine grind. Some use a whole bean icon then smaller sand grind icon. Others may use numbers like 1-10 etc.
* For the super automatic coffee/espresso brewers they usually have a program enabled grind setting where a mini motor will adjust the grind for you depending on your coffee choice.
* The lesser "home" or office brewers may only have one setting and needs to be calibrated each time you change beans. (This is usually an adjustment knob or screw) Coffee needs to be brewed and tasted for each change of grind setting.
* Note that often changing the grind setting will also affect the ground coffee volume. (changing the size of dregs 'puck'). This also changes the flavor profile.
* Volume changes to brew needs to be done from the programing menu of the super automatic brewer.
* Espresso brews using a standard portafilter, it's critical to adjust the grind to the portafilter basket and dose water amount.
* Brewing in the coffee auto drip needs to have larger grind and more coffee to make up for the loss of flavor from large grinds.
* Smaller grinds intensifies the flavor but brings on bitter oils if ground too fine.
* Go slow and make taste tests each step of the way. Understand that it's a multi level balance between; Heat, Water volume, Flow rate, Pre-soak, coffee roast, coffee amount, besides just the size of the coffee grind.

My Saeco Royal Professional says coffee beans empty although it is full


hi,
there is a small measuring device between the grinder and the brewer, that measures grind coffee flowing into the brewer. the brewer is the removable part on the right side of the machine.
it looks like that the measuring device is clocked or in worse case broken!.
my suggestion:
1.open the door on the right side
2. remove carefully the brewer/brew unit
3. clean it under warm running water
4. clean out the surrounding area, coffee pan etc.
5. check the measuring device for clocked coffee. it is square, has a small flap and easy to access with the door open. take a soft brush and clean the area, there might be a lot of ground coffee!
6. carefully re-insert the brewer acc. to manual, do not force in place.
7. close the door and use the unit.
you might also remove all beans and clean the burrs, the ground coffee outlet and check that it is free and not clocked as well. otherwise no ground-coffee will reach the measuring device!
good luck!

Why cant I get a full cup of coffee


Brewing a Partial Cup
If the brewer is not brewing the full amount selected, it may be caused by the following:
  • The exit needle is clogged by coffee grounds or cocoa mix. Please refer to the K-Cup Holder cleaning instructions.
  • The brewer needs to be descaled. Please refer to the descaling instructions.
  • The removable water reservoir was removed during brewing. Place the water reservoir back onto the brewer and perform a cleansing brew without a K-Cup pack.

DGB-550BK Filter basket won't stay shut when either brewing ground coffee or grinding beans.. With the ground; the basket pops open mid brew and makes a mess everywhere. When grinding beans, I've noticed...


Not a solution but...

Many folks have reported this, the latching mechanism wears out eventually.
We had the problem but discovered that the door on the basket wasn't getting completely closed. Now I make sure it's closed and haven't had any problem since.
Hope this solves your issue - if not, keep an eye on yard sales, we picked up two at different times for $5 and now have parts to swap out - not much help for a failed latch though.
Glad I never paid full price for it, even though it's a fairly good grinder/brewer.

DGB-900 Grind and Brew grinder


One idea to try. I noticed with my grind & brew that the moisture never evaporated from the inside top of the machine. Since that cannot be good over a long term, I have started leaving the top open during the day after I clean the machine in the morning. Your problem is why I started doing that. Why don't you try leaving the top open for a couple of days and see if drying the machine out doesn't cause some of that gunk to dry out?
