Question about Solis Master 5000 Espresso Machine
The machine was taken apart, cleaned, dried, and everything seemed to be working. Upon pushing the button to make a cup the grinder spins the beans but they don't actually go down Into the machine anymore.

This is most likely due to a build up of ground coffee at the edges, and the whole lot has become a solid lump.
Disconnect the machine and clean with a small stiff paintbrush.
This is caused by damp beans, or using dark roast beans, or keeping beans refrigerated. Often it is the coffee oil that causes it.
If there are beans in there and the unit is not rotating, please contact here again.
Thanks......Oh, and rate as Fixya! if it helps you.

You may have sprung a leak in your machine that shorted out the electronics , that burning smell is not good :(
Find an electronic type to open up the machine a take a look inside. The top cover comes off without to much pain.

The ventilate is just opening the steam valve for just water. Don't push the button for steam. Your grinder needs to be a little coarser. Turn the big know in the bean hopper to a larger #, about 2 to 4
You need to clean the brew head in the brew unit.
Holding the handle, the top left side is the brew head. There is an outlet pipe that exits the front, towards the door (looks like an "L" pipe). 2screws hold it to the top. Remove the 2 screws while holding the manifold ("L" pipe assembly). Once they are removed, lift the l assembly off (be careful, there is an O-ring, spring with a black seal (don’t loose it or your out of luck).
Now remove the brew screen, by holding the screen with your finger and twisting the thumbscrew (remember thumbscrew, DON’T use the key to install the screen, use your fingers...
Once the screen is out, look at where the screen was. There are 2 holes. 1 big one in the center and a small one to the side.
With the brew unit upside down over the towel insert a paperclip into the small hole and force anything out the other side. I have gotten worms almost a 1" long from this passage. The paper clip has to go from this side to prevent damage to the seat on the other side.
Clean then reassemble. Brew unit on towel right side up. Then the spring with black seal down.
Now the O-ring over the spring, then place the manifold on top of that with the pipe towards the handle side. Insert your screws (I turn them backwards a little with a little downward pressure until they feel like they drop into the threads. They should turn down easily, if not back them up a little more ( we are trying to find the old threads) and tighten. Install screen, and tighten with your fingers. The screen just needs to be flush with the bottom of the brew head.
Install in machine and test

Taking the grinder apart is not easy to do and get it back the way it is suppose to be is not easy. The first thing I would do is turn the big knob to the 18 or max and the small knob to the -, and try again. If that works leave it there for a couple shots to clean everything out. If that works continue. Then while the grinder is grinding, turn the big knob back down to 8-10 and make some more drinks. 6 to 8 is a good start.
If it didn't work you will need directions but the damage may be already done. The burrs ghave no coating on them and they can rust very quickly. you may need new burrs or a new grinder.
I have a saying " If you are working on the water, keep the bean hopper covered and vice versa". Cross contamination will damage the machine very quickly.

Hi coffee friend I have just answered this question. I think
After you have done all the cleaning you have done, you can try this: do check that all knobs correctly set. That the steam spout is closed. that the water tank sitter correctly
Disconnect from power, wait 2-3minutes connect again and hope for the best.
