To start off with, you should not change the big knob unless the grinder is operating at the time.
Set the small knob to the middle position. You can move this any time. Move towards the + mark to strengthen the coffee, but never all the way to the full +.
Set the big knob to the #8 to start off with. Move it 1 # smaller to make the coffee stronger but be careful not to get it to fine as you will clog the grinder and you will have to take it apart to clean. If you ever get an out of beans light, but there are beans in the hopper, open the knob to #16 for 1 cycle, then turn it back down to a # 1 larger than you had before and leave it unless you get the message again. Shiny beans call for a coarser grind than a dull bean because of the oils in the coffee bean. Oils will cause the grinds to stick together and cause clogs faster than beans that have less oil.

If you are talking about the descale light you must let the machine quit on its own. The lights will change. Then do the rinse by replacing the water in the tank and closing and then reopening the steam knob and again letting the machine quit on its own. Again the lights will change. Then repeat the last cycle until all the red lights go away and you only have a green blinking light. Stopping it when it is out of water will only let it continue on with the descale cycle. The pump must quit on its own.

Press and hold the descale button(lower right), it will light up.Then you can start the process. The machine will prompt the next step when the solution in the tank is used up. Have a go.

This has happened to me twice. Usually caused by a trapped bean in the grinder. Here is how I fixed it. It is easy.
Inside the plastic bean hopper is a screw located in the bottom. Remove it and lift off the hopper. Have someone help you as you turn the machine upside down to remove all the beans. Use a tooth pick or a wooden skewer to pick out any beans lodged inside the grinder housing. Once completed, return the unit to its upright position.
Look inside the hopper and locate the grinder stem which is gold colored. On top of the stem is a hex bolt. Take a hex wrench with a 7/16 hex socket, connect it to the grinder hex bolt and turn it "counter clockwise" about half way which is the same direction the grinder turns. Add some beans and see if it works. If not, turn the hex bot "clockwise" a half to a full turn. Add beans and check.
This helps move the grinder out of its "stuck" position.

Remove the dredge drawer. Open the door. On the left side of the brewing unit, and towards the back of the brew group, there is a single screw. Remove the screw. Grab the handle and pull carefully, but firmly with a quick ****. The brew group should come out. There is a piece that remains in the machine. Slide that piece down and to the right and it will come off. Insert the piece into the hole on the backside of the brew group with the clip up. Tighten the screw and move brew group back into position.
To return the brew group to the centered position, you first need to drop the funnel. To do this, look on the opposite side of the brew group from the handle. At the top you will see an object that looks like a sharks fin. If you follow this piece down you will see 2 horizontal bars on the brew group body. Push your finger between these 2 bars and the funnel will drop. Now you can push the puck slide on the left side down and to the center. (You can insert your key into the hole in the front and twist the key to return the brew unit to the center. Line up the 2 diamonds and it centered) If you look down through the funnel you should see a piston. This should be centered in the funnel. If not, locate the slide on the left side of the brew unit,(it should be hanging down, a flat rectangular piece attached to the cylinder) and push the slide to the right until it does. Push the press button and you are now ready to reinsert the brew group in to the machine. First you must close the door and turn on the machine without having the brew group in, but you must have your drip tray and dredge drawer in. Turn the machine on. You will hear the motor turn on and when it stops completely, open the door and remove the tray, now insert the brew group and replace the tray.
