Bean grinders expect to grind whole beans as you have just found out. The grounds have clogged the entrance of the grinder. Use a wood chop stick to try and loosen up the 'caked' coffee and remove the coffee with a vacuum hose attachment. Try to **** out as much of the coffee as you can. Please note that this should all be done with the machine unplugged. Try grinding again but don't let it 'Hum' too long if it's not grinding. You can also try to adjust the grinder 'coarser' to give more room for the burrs to clear. Good Luck!

SOunds like either the grinder is totally jamed with a small stone ( sometimes found in coffee beans) or the motor has died or the logic control of the motor operation has failed.
If mechanically minded, REMOVE POWER CORD, take all beans out of machine hopper - plug back in and see if you can detect any grinder movement. If not, UNPLUG again and see if you can see anything jammed in between the gringing discs. If so try and remove it even loosen up the amount of the grind as that may free up the jam.
Still no go, then you could test the motor but unless you are ELECTRICALLY competent DON"T ATTEMPT as it may be either a AC or DC motor and it could be running at low or DANGEROUS voltages.
Best to have it serviced if after checking for a jam it still is no go. Better to lose a few dollars than a life by attempting electrical repairs.

There is set-screw that holds the cofee bean container from pulling all the way out. Loosening almost all the way out (or removing) the screw, will allow the cofee bean container to slide all the way out. However, when sliding it out, put a container under the edge of the machine housing to catch any residual beans and keep them from falling all over the floor. Here's how to do it: with the door open, look (or feel with your fingers) directly at the (closed) coffee bean container. Coming up from the bottom, all the way on the right side is the set screw. It's a black phillips screw that you can easily miss if you don't look carefully or use a flashlight as it blends in with the housing. Good luck.

f 17 is no water flow. It usually occurs when the brew unit has not been cleaned regularly, when the coffee grind size is set too fine, or when oily beans are used. You can try to soak the brew unit in hot water for a while, and run water through it in the sink. Unfortunately, most cases require brew unit replacement. A properly cleaned and maintained brew unit should last the life of the machine.

In our case we were lucky. Grinder was blocked by the beans. This is what I have done with our Delonghi 5400. It looked fiddly but was quite simple really. I started from the back panel. Once back panel was removed I had access to 4 corner screws that remove both side panels. Now that give me access to 4 corner screws that hold top of the machine. I l also had to unscrew 5 screws that hold coffee container in place. 4 are visible once the coffee beans container is open, but the 5th is hidden in the middle of adjustment arm with a black cap on top.(adjusting how fine you grind). I used small sharp screwdriver to lift the cap. Once all are out I removed the top of the machine and then the funnely coffee container too. That exposed grinder assembly. Top of the grinder is actually loosely sitting in the lower part of grinder. Twisting it counter clock should release it I Think. Our was not budging, and I had to completely remove the grinder and detach motor but that is quite obvious too, and probably not needed. I just wasn't sure what I was doing. Our machine was out of warranty so... Would be nice if we had some schematics.
