You may have a legitimate mechanical malfunciton but sometimes the simple solution is the right one! The chute on this (and other) superautomatic does not like the oily residue that beans inevitably leave. All it takes it gently putting one or two fingers into the bean hopper as the grinder motor starts to sound louder/faster (this is caused by the grinder motor being under less load/strain because no beans are feeding) and wiggling for 1-2 seconds. If you do this immediately after hearing the grinder motor's rpms increase you will not get a "fill bean hopper" error message. No hard pushing is required, just a gentle wiggle. There is a shroud over the actual bottom of the hopper, so you don't want to stick your fingers beyond that. If you are concerned about actually sticking your fingers into the hopper while the grinder is running, you can simply push down on the top of the beans with gentle pressure which will in effect force the beans down and accomplish the same thing. This technique + regular cleaning of the grinder may be all you need. Hope this helps! Tony

you have probably removed the tray during the time the brew unit was transporting the coffee. by removing the tray you stopped the transporting unit in the middle of this process.
You can solve this by putting back the brew unit. Close the machine Do not put back the dump tray. Look into the machine, at the spot where the dumptray should go. There is a litte slot in the back. but put a little spoon or some smal screwdriver into this slot. You can hear the machine finish the transporting cycle. After that you can put back the dumptray and it should work again.

Although it may be a different problem completely, most of these failures are caused by a thermal fuse that has opened. They are positioned close to the heating element and serve to prevent fires in case the control of the heater element fails. Unfortunately, they often fail for no reason at all (except being poorly made in China) and are welded into the circuit (solder melts at too low of a temperature) making them nearly impossible to replace at home.
