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?

Talea ring the grinder will not stop gringing


The Talea model is with a Ceramic grinder system. This can happen when the grinder outlet is clogged with coffee grounds. Fresh beans cannot enter the grinder as the outlet is clogged. Remember, the grinder in any machine is a grinder. It does not shovel the coffee grounds out and clean the outlet when it is clogged.
1- Check if the grind setting is too fine (powder like). If so change the setting to coarse. Fully automatic machines do not need fine grind. Keep the grind fineness like the table slat grain.
2- Check if the beans are dark roast and oily. Oily beans are a slow poison for any fully automatic machine. Change the beans to Non oily medium roast type.

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at https://www.6ya.com/expert/edward_bbd2c7ff4ee1828a

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

As I can see, what happens is that some coffee grains stucks in the way from the upper pot to the grinding wheel. This is not something usual, but possible if coffee grains are too big and are placed across the entry of the mill. Try cleaning more deep with some old toothbrush. Look for a clean and even surface of the duct.
Other cause might be a loosen mill hub/grinding wheel off the motor shaft, which would require dissassemble of the appliance to be repaired.

It grinds the beans, but just a trace amount of coffee is brewed and drips out.


My F9 started with the "Fill Beans" routine even though there were plenty. The grinder started making a high-pitched noise, which Capresso's customer service told me was indicative of something being stuck in the grinder (like the stones mentioned in the manual).

Their suggestions ranged from vacuuming out the grinder to blowing compressed air into it, to "burping" the machine -- which they describe as hitting it mildly while grinding. Kind of a Heimlich maneuver on the thing.

Still no success, but I did turn the unit upside down a few times and shook out a *lot* of coffee grounds. This led me to believe that the grinder was still working, but something was blocking it down low. So I ran the cleaning cycle twice, and voila, coffee again.

An interesting aside was that the first dump from the first cleaning delivered the usual grounds but also some more pasty-like remains, and pretty dirty water. The dump water from the second cycle was very clear. This is a testimonial to the efficacy of the cleaning process. If you don't do this when the machine requests it, you are running the risk of gumming it up. I know (now); I had been ignoring the request to clean it for about a week and a half...

My A-9 Coffee grinder no longer grinds coffee. Have cleaned it and checked it out and nothing. The motor runs but no grounds. Thanks for your help!


This fixes almost all the "beans will not feed or beans will not grind" problems caused by coffee bean dust packed in the burrs. Oily beans cause this problem more fequently.
a. Pour all the beans out the top.
b. Open the settings up all the way and see what else can be poured out. Use your shop vacuum to **** grounds out the spout and backward out the bean bin.
c. Pour in some instant rice and start grinding. Reduce the grind to a small setting like six and then open the settings all the way again. (The grinder will not start at a low setting with the rice in it. If you let it stop, open the settings to about 16 before trying to restart.)
d. Pour out the rice and vacuum out the ground rice.
e. Adjust the grinder to your favorite setting and try a coffee grind. Grind until most of the rice dust is expelled (any remaining trace of rice dust will not affect the flavor of the coffee).

Remove brew unit and check the grounds chute from the grinder, if that is clear, then re-insert unit, then when the grinder is grinding adjust to a coarser grind.
