Brewing unit stuck

I have a similar issue with former posts. The brew unit of my Siemens Surpresso Compact TK58001 is stuck with the nose in upper position. The steamer and power lights flash alternatively and the machine does not respond to any pressing of buttons. The machine fails to reset the error by switching off and on. I saw a youtube video for a Saeco that shows that you first need to move the screw connected to the water supply, however I see nothing similar or accessible on the Siemens.

Machine is not starting right - brew unit gets stuck and if removed in order to reset the alignment of the gearing wheel in the machine, it does not align in order to get the brew unit back in place.


When the upper and lower, dregs box and descale light, are flashing alternatively, this means that either the grinder or the brew group motor, sensors or switches are not responding to the CPU or pwr board. This will need to be brought to a Saeco Service center for repair. I would not attempt to repair without proper working knowledge of the cpu and pwr system.

The machine is showing the brew unit is blocked but we have taken it out and cleaned it but this makes no difference.


Does the brew unit try to move at all? You can listen for the motor, or open the door panel and defeat the safety interlock while it's operating. (Be careful not to put a finger in there.) Then you can observe where the brew unit is getting stuck.

Jammed brewing unit


Remove the brew unit and check the screen under the red o-ring, find the 2 screws above the top piston and make sure the chamber that leads out to the tube is clear.

Hi...i have a Siemens s40 surpresso which i believe is identical to the Bosch B30 machine. ive had it for years now and about to his 9000 brews! But the problem is that the water pressure is decreasing now...


You have to either get a new drainage valve or buy a "DIY" set
or the big set - you can just as well change all o-rings while you are at it.

I would also change the grinding stones (or whatever it is called in english...)

Alternatively buy the stuff at http://www.juraprofi.de/ - Komtra does not provide creditcard payment option.

Have a look at their forum - it is in german - but you will find an answer to all your issues with this machine.

First clean the screen and tube on the brew unit, then lube the guides/gear grooves on the brew unit, also lube the o-ring(big red one). Then that should take care of it. You can also try backwashing/degreasing the brew unit if the machine has a preground chute.

It say brew unit missing


The brew unit missing switch is inside the slot at top back wall where the top of the brew unit puts an angled piece of plastic into the slot. The piece is a slope like a nose so it gently pushes the switch as you instert the brew unit. See if the brew unit reaches this slot on the wall. If it doesn't the brew unit most likely jammed up and was removed while the gears were not in home position. Now the gears are not allowing the brew unit to return fully inserted.

If you're handy you can call Miele tech support and request they walk you through steps to diagnose this. They will discover if the gear is out of home position or not. If it is not and the switch is in contact with the brew unit you may be in luck, the swith is cheap. But if the electronics no longer reads the switch signal it's 800 bucks to replace. Good luck!

Brew cup stuck unable to get out


Hi,

If you open the door and take a flashlight, light in the front/middle of the brewing unit. You will see a little screw, take a screwdriver and loosen it, bend little on the little plastic above where the screw was and pull out the brewing unit.
When you have the brewing unit out then you need to reset the machine and brewing unit.

To reset the machine you have to turn off your machine, open the door.
Look in the down left corner, you will see a hole, look in the middle of the machin you see another hole and in the upper right corner.
put a screwdriver or similarly in the left corner and in the middle of the machine, turn on the machine and put another screwdriver in the upper right corner. hold it in place to the machine not get any noise more.

To reset the brewing unit, first put the plastic back again (that one you loosen with the screw first).
If you look back on the backsida of the brewing unit, in the middle you will see a plastic that looks lika a handle, force it down and you will see all the other parts will move around little. Turn it to you can see the little mark on the front goes to the N mark.

Best regards

You have got the gears out of alignment. You don't really want to take out brew group unless at end of cycle. You can fool machine to get brew group back in.
Here is how :

BREW GROUP REMOVAL AND DRIVE GEARS ADJUSTMENT
FOR AUTOMATIC MACHINES
If you ever find yourself in need of removing a Brew Group that has jammed. This will assist you in doing so correctly.

To fix this problem follow these simple steps:
You will need a #1 Philips screwdriver

1.) First, open the door on the machine and remove the drip tray and dredge drawer

2.) Locate the nickel size hole in the brew group. It will have an "N" next to it. At the 9 o'clock position, you will see another hole about 1/3 of the size of the first. Directly behind this hole, or about an inch up depending on the position the machine was stopped in you will see a single philips head screw. You may have to look around the side of the brew group to locate the screw as it is not always visible from the smaller hole. Remove this screw; it holds a small coupling water inlet (it is similar looking to a tobacco pipe) to the brew group.

3.) Remove the brew group by pressing/pushing (depending on your machine) on the part that says “Press" or "Push”. Pull firmly and straight out. Be cautious to not break the brew unit. Also be aware of the door of your machine as it can break as well.

4.) With the brew group out, remove the small coupling water inlet (tobacco pipe) that is probably still stuck to your machine and reinstall it in the brew group as it was before. Make sure the screw is installed snugly but not too tight.

5.) Turn the brew group around so you are facing the back. Now imagine what a check mark looks like, the top we will call position A (longer part of the checkmark) and where the checkmark ends (the smaller portion) is point B. You will notice what looks like a large checkmark where the coupling water inlet is located. The water coupling can slide up and down in this checkmark opening. The water coupling should be in the B position.

REINSTALLING THE BREW GROUP
To do this, the gears will have to be reset to the start position. In order to do so, you will have to bypass the three micro-switches (Brew Group, Dump Box and the Door switch).
Bypassing the micro switches:

1.) Looking at the back-side of the brew group, not the side that says "Push" or "Press," you will notice something fin-like or nose shaped. This piece fits into a keyhole or coin slot looking slot in the machine and that is where the brew unit micro-switch is located. Take something like an index card, envelope, or folded up piece of paper, and insert it into that keyhole so that it will trick the machine into thinking that the brew unit is installed. Start the piece of paper at the top of the slot and slide it to the bottom of the slot. The paper should be thick enough so you can let go and it will remain in place. Leave this object in there until the following steps are complete.

2.) WITHOUT putting the brew group back into the machine, reinstall the drip-tray and dredge drawer and close the door.

3.) After doing so you can then turn the machine ON. At this time the gears will begin moving until they return to the correct start position. At this point remove the object from the keyhole position and you can now reinstall the brew group. If the brew group does not go back in correctly, try a few more times. The machine will return to its home position. Note: The two large spokes of The brew drive shaft should in the Up position

At times, the gears in the brew drive assembly will not complete the cycle to the proper
start position for different reasons. Some of the reasons are:
• Brew group jammed or blocked
• Either one of the micro switches in the brew drive have gone bad.
• Brew drive motor Failure.
• Broken teeth on either of the brew drive gears.
• Dirty brew group, covered by coffee grinds.
• Brew group or gears not lubricated.
• Connections to the board from brew drive assy., or motor have gone bad.
A jammed or blocked brew group happens when the brew group starts the cycle but doesn’t finish it.
