This is hard to get to - requires removal of the top plastic cover, coffee bean holder and adjuster, water inlet pipe, front boiler before you can even get to it.

The part itself is common and is not expensive but I suggest you get a quote from your service agent - unless you can do the job yourself without any drama.

Check to make sure its 'clicking' when you put the drawer in. The contact tab on the drawer left side back may also be missing causing the switch not to be activated.

It grinds but why won't it advance grounds and why does the red bean light come on?

(Besides the possibility of being clogged) there is also a microswitch which controls when there is enough coffee. If this switch isn't working properly, the machine will keep grinding coffee indefinitely. The microswitch has code XCC5-81 (you can look for it on e.g. Ebay:

My Saeco Royal Professional won't grind: "blocked grinder" message

Hello, I had exactly the same problem. In my case, it seems that the grinder was not ejecting the grounds into the doser with enough force to move the pressure plate and trigger the microswitch. My grinder motor might be wearing out, but I decided to try increasing the sensitivity of the microswitch before I spent so much. I replaced the microswitch, but that didn't solve the problem. Instead, I added a spacer (~2mm, but you'll have to play with it to adjust the pressure for your switch) between the doser pressure plate lever arm and the microswitch. That has been working very well for the last month. Very occasionally I get the same message again, but if I tell it to brew again the second grinding succeeds. I hope this helps!

Not working

Three possible causes.

1. The drawer where the coffee grounds end up is not properly inserted. To fix insert drawer completely.
2. The tab on the left side of the drawer is broken off. To fix purchase an new drawer.
3. The drawer microswitch has a problem. There could be many reasons for this. The machine will have to be opened up to see whats wrong.

Dregdrawer. miss.

Make sure the machine is clean of coffee grinds. Mine has a nasty habit of dropping them behind the dregdrawer instead of in it. Remove the central unit and give it a good clean. The dregdrawer should then slide back fully into the microswitch.
If this doesn't work, you've probably got a dud microswitch.
