Question about Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
The coffee maker has worked well, except if you turn the grinder off and try to use pre-ground coffee, it doesn't take the water from the reservoir, heat it, and drip it through the basket. We just used beans with the grinder and it worked fine. Now the problem has surfaced when using the grinder. It grinds the coffee but won't heat the water and drip it through the basket. The water reservoir remains full and the coffee grounds remain dry. The coffee maker appears to go through a normal cycle with the ON/OFF LED light going on for a couple of minutes and the machine making its normal noises except the LED ON stays on too long and I don't think it makes the end of cycle 5 beeps. I have never performed the decalcifying cleaning cycle with vinegar. I tried removing the charcoal filter when making coffee but it didn't make a difference.

We have had a similar problem but ONLY with Starbucks coffee beans. Starbucks seems to put some type of coating on, at least some of their beans causing the problem.

Not a solution but...
Many folks have reported this, the latching mechanism wears out eventually.
We had the problem but discovered that the door on the basket wasn't getting completely closed. Now I make sure it's closed and haven't had any problem since.
Hope this solves your issue - if not, keep an eye on yard sales, we picked up two at different times for $5 and now have parts to swap out - not much help for a failed latch though.
Glad I never paid full price for it, even though it's a fairly good grinder/brewer.
