Ask a Question
After searching the Internet to see if anyone else had encountered this problem and found a solution, I then contacted the seller, but they told me that I had purchased the last one they had in stock. I finally broke down and called Philips/Saeco customer service. Wow, what a pleasant surprise! A very helpful gentleman patiently listened to my problem and immediately arranged to send me a new machine and also emailed me the labels I need to ship my machine back to them.
I had read some horrible accounts of customers trying to deal with this company shortly after Philips acquired Saeco so I just had to share my wonderful experience with you all. I certainly won't hesitate to purchase another one of their products...next time from Seattle Coffee Gear.
1. Oily beans. I'm in the Bay Area and drink Peet's--muy oily but not a problem with my Solis. Do I really need to pass on this machine because of the oily beans?
2. Should the bean jiggler be removed as so many say?
The bean jiggler does not always need to be removed. Some find that having it in place is helpful to jostle the beans, but others will find that it creates more of a blockage or hinderance. Either way, try it with it in place, but if you end up seemingly to "run out of beans" often when there is beans in the hopper, you can then remove it. It doesn't harm the machine to operate it with or without it.

It does pay to purchase maintenance supplies and carry out the weekly and monthly care routines (maintains excellent tasting coffee). I did remove the bean shaker as others advised. I also have been able to mix up to ~15% "oily" beans into the top hopper with no grinder issues. Lastly, when you remove the water hopper be sure to support it from the sides and bottom after filling! The clips that hold the front fascia in place will easily break (mine have) and cementing it back in place (I did -LOL) requires that you use just the right amount of acrylic adhesive to maintain the spacing that allows the tant to fully engage the water inlet.
