Gaggia syncrony compact digital - DREGDRAWER MISSING

Got message DREGDRAWER FULL, therefore I opened the front cover to empty the coffee grounds drawer (but I turned the machine off before), guess what when I have inserted the container back the message was still on. After reading and reading I found out that I should have left the machine on. Now I guess I have disabled the coffee dispensing function. After looking at the machine closely, I noticed a little slot behind next to the coffee grounds drawer, What I did is just push on it with a small screw driver and it would bring it back to normal state, but when I pull the screw driver out I saw a little white plastic thing fell in the bottom and now the unit says DREGDRAWER MISSING (**** now what). I tried many different things but no luck, my machine does not want to work again. What I did to temporarily fix the machine is to stick a little plastic plug in the slot, the message disappeared and got to get the espresso back working. My question is do you know what exactly happened? Can I damage the machine if I leave the plug to make the coffee machine work again? Do not know how to get the white “thing” back to its place. What a awful way of Gaggia to disable the machine if the drawer is emptied while the machine is off.

thanks

    I cannot remove the dredgdrawer! The is a little piece of plastic at the back of it attached to the "central unit" that is stopping it from releasing.

    this happens when the machine has not finished its cycle, if you close the door, and let it finish, the plastic will go back up, try turning it off and then back on, it should do it then


    if this fails to work, remove the brew unit with the dregdrawer and insert the same way with the plastic in the waste coffee bean holder

The thing that dropped out was part of the micro switch for the dregs draw. Yes you can use the machine with the piece that you put in there, at some time you might consider just replacing the micro switch.

Gaggia syncrony compact digital expresso maker says fill water tank but water tank is full


Check the float in the tank that indicates the water level to the sensor. They often fail to float, solution is to either replace the tank or jam something plastic under the float to lift it to the top of its slot.

My Gaggia syncrony digital has just stopped working....the coffeee is still being ground but there is no coffeee coming out....no water seems to be getting through. Any ideas?


There is one of 2 things going on either the machine needs to be descaled and or the brew unit screen is blocked. Remove the brew unit from machine and check screen below the red o-ring.

Machine shows message 'dregdrawer full' even thought the dreg drawer is empty. cant get rid of this error message.


Hi
When you go to empty the dredge drawer you must leave the machine on. When you remove the dredge drawer it will say dredge drawer missing. Leave it out at least 15 seconds so the machine knows you are empting it. When you insert it again the machine will count about 24 cycles and tell you to empty it again. Its a counter.

Display says dregdrawer is full when it is not and therefor the machine will not work


Hi
When you want to empty the grounds because it says to in the menu, REMEMBER TO LEAVE THE MACHINE ON when you remove the drawer. The machine is a counter and when it reaches the magic number for that machine the message comes on. If the machine is turned off when you pull the drawer out, the machine doesn't know this and the message will be there when you turn the machine back on. Also remember to leave the drawer out for at least 15 seconds or a little longer so the machine thinks you actually dumped the grounds

Can you you tell me why there is a flashing red light on the coffee machine


Descaling light:
• on and fl ashing: signals the need to perform a descaling cycle

Machine ready light:
• permanently on: signals that the machine is ready for use.
• on and fl ashing: signals that the machine is warming up.

Alarm light:
• permanently on : signals the machine is out of coffee, the water tank is
empty, the drip tray is full or the dregdrawer is full (in this case, also empty
the coffee grounds drawer in order to prevent failures).
• on and fl ashing slowly: signals that the brew group is not inserted, the
dregdrawer is not inserted the coffee bean hopper lid is not on, the service
door is open or the steam/hot water knob is not correctly turned to the
desired position.
• on and quickly fl ashing: signals the need to prime the water circuit.

Dregdrawer Full


I read somewhere that there is a counter in the machine that when a certain amount of shots are done, the counter will reach its limit and tell you to empty the drawer, even if it's not full.

When I get the message I open the door, remove the drawer and it goes away once you replace it. Don't know why the machine would stop working though?
