My S8 turns itself off, as if a circuit breaker in the machine just "trips" and the machine shuts down, just as if the electrical supply cordwas unpluged. The machine is not shutting down with it's normal timed rinse and power off method as it should be doing. It is not the ground fault of my homes electrical outlet. Anyone had similiar trouble?
It is possible that the timer unit in the maker is defective and need to be replaced. I would suggest you move the coffee maker to a different outlet and see if you have the same problem. If there is a short in the mechanism or a bad connection in the timer it could be experiencing a thermal shutdown.

This error is because:
1- Flow meter is blocked & not sending signal of water flow.
2- Entire hydraulic system is filled with Calcium deposits and slowed down flow of water.
1- Open the machine and manually clean flow meter. It is located between the water tank & the pump.
2- Follow this by manually descaling the machine. Seelink. Do not use automatic descaling method suggested by Jura.
Stop using Filter cartridges as the machine reminders for descaling are silenced by use of filters. Services Unlimited Inc Parts Guru Since 1988
There is an electrical short within the machine, ...don't doubt it - the results of your experiments prove that it has an electrical fault and that your tripping circuits are doing exactly what they should to keep you and your property safe.
The machine needs servicing by a registered Rancilio electrician, don't go inside yourself, its highly likely that the part causing the tripping is dangerous and will need to be replaced.
Yes it is possible, but here is what you have to do first, try a different outlet, that is not on same circuit , another part of house, even garage. If it still trips breaker, then more than likely it's a machine problem that is causing this. If it doesn't trip, then you can put it back where it was, but then have to maybe move other items on that circuit else where if your fond on that spot for the machine. Espresso machine have a huge surge electric demand when on heat mode. Like all kitchens they have several out let's on same circuit , if you still want it in same area, then have to move other stuff to other outlets that don't share circuit. And no you don't want to up circuit breaker to larger breaker as wires might not be rated to handle larger breaker. Let me know if my idea works, thanks mike from fixya
Have to up the breaker at panel that controls that line of outlet circuits, but sometimes can not do this as wires in walls that control those outlets are on same circuit and rated at a curtain size breaker. Best and safest way to solve this is plug machine on different circuit that maybe not so many other items are sharing, like if your fridge or microwave is on that same circuit (breaker) it most likely will always trip. Let me know results if this solved problem, thanks Mr Bean Man
Is there power to the outlet itself?? If not see if you have a GFCI (ground fault circuit interupter) outlet near by ( it is an outlet that is usually shaped different than the other outlets) this outlet has two buttons on it "trip" and "rest" press the "rest" button this may turn the power on to the coffee outlet.If still no power, check to see if the breaker in the house power panel is tripped, if so rest the breaker by moving the switch on the breaker to the "off" position then back to the "on" position. This should reset the breaker, it trips again there is a problem that needs a more skilled person to assess. If this doesn't work there could be a problem with the coffee maker itself and unless you have the equipment to test and repair this you may be out of luck.
What exactly is tripping out? Most kitchens now have GFI recepticals. There is a small red button that pops out if the circuit detects moisture inside the electrical parts of the coffee maker. If that is tripping you may be able to simply dry out the coffee maker by turning it upside down and then blowing the switch and electronic controls with a hair dryer for a few minutes. Try the coffee maker is a receptical in the bedroom. If it doesn't trip there it is probably moisture caused by spilling a little water on the machine when you were filling it. If it trips the bedroom breaker, it is most likely a dead short in the machine. Normally it is not worth the labor and parts to repair this machine.
I had the same problem and had success with cleaning the contacts in the back of the machine with a small nail file/emery board. I found that the contacts that are inside the machine had a little calisification on them. Once they were cleaned up no problem.
