Brewunit missing message

Gaggia SyncronyAfter emptying the dregdrawer and rinsing and replacing the brewunit, I'm still getting the brewunit missing message. The brewunit seems to be seated correctly, but obviously something isn't right. I always rinse and replace the brewunit when I empty the dregdrawer, but this is the first time this message has appeared. I've removed and replaced the brewunit and turned off and on the machine several times just in case it was just a gllitch, but it appears to be more than a glitch. Do you have any idea what could be the problem and how I can correct it?
Thank you for any help you can give.Patricia

SOURCE: Gaggia Synchrony Brew Unit Block

Your machine has stopped mid-cycle.
1. Open the brew group door and look for a screw holding the the coupling to the water inlet, lower left side of the brew group. Remove the screw with a phillipshead screwdriver.
2. Remove the brewgroup by holding the handle and pressing on the "press" button. The brew group will slide out.
3. Remove the water inlet piece left behind from the machine and re-attach it to the brewgroup.
4. Now you must reset the machine. Bypass the three microswitches to the door, the dump box and the brew group by taping them down. Once they are all bypassed the unit will move the gears to the correct position with the two larger cams on top.

Put in your brew group and you are good to go.

If this problem persists you need to send it in for service.

SOURCE: gaggia titanium machine, display says

Either your tab is broken on the back of your dredge drawer or your microswitch has been moved from its correct position. There should be a tab on the back of the dredge drawer. If not you need a new dredge drawer.

Gaggia Titantium says dregdrawer missing

Look at the sensor for the door to see if there is any broken plastic pieces or perhaps the sensor has come loose and just needs adjusting.

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

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.

No matter what I do the Gaggia Titanium espresso machine reads brewunit missing;. This is what I did: I removed the brewunit of the machine to clean it, and reset the N to the correct position on the front...

If the brew unit is in the wrong position when inserted you can knock the lever off the microswitch in the back. If the lever is knocked off you will never get the brw unit miss message to go away. You will have to take the machine apart and replace the lever on the microswitch. Sorry
We made a modification to the brew unit that would prevent this from happening. We modified all the brew units on the compact machines before sending them out so we would never get them back for this reason.

Machine is stuck in rinse cycle and brewunit

Take the brew unit out again, and try to twist the rotational mechanism so that the little arrows in the front of the axis align. This should allow you to insert the unit.
On insertion, you might also need to push the little handle on the front of the brew unit to allow the coffee trough to fit.

Try taking the brew unit out, and clean the area inside the machine for coffee grains before reinserting it. There's a tiny sensor for if the unit is inserted, but it can be confused if the machine gets messy inside.
