Troubleshooting

My Saeco GranBaristo espresso machine won't grind the beans

If your Saeco GranBaristo espresso machine is not grinding the beans, there might be a simple solution.

The coffee funnel is blocked by ground coffee

Unblock the coffee funnel with a spoon handle

  1. Switch the machine OFF and wait until you hear no more sounds (this can take up to 15-20 seconds)
  2. Remove the brew group
  3. Open the lid of the pre-ground coffee funnel and place the spoon handle into the funnel
    Note; If there is no pre-ground coffee funnel, insert the spoon handle into the coffee funnel from below
  4. Move the handle up and down until the clogged ground coffee falls down
    Note: Some force may be required
  5. Remove all fallen ground coffee and place back the brew group
  6. Brew an espresso
  7. After brewing, check if the funnel is still free from ground coffee. If not, repeat the unblocking procedure

To prevent the coffee funnel from getting blocked

  • Do not pour/spill any water into the coffee bean container
  • Clean the coffee funnel weekly
