Empty the waste bin. Clean it out, wash it out and put it back in.

Check your coffee bean container, check it's grind setting, and put the beans back in.

Try a shot of espresso. At the end you should have a puck of wet ground coffee.

Based upon how the brew unit works, I don't think you will have dry coffee in the waste bin... It sounds to me like the beans are not able to get into the grinder/brew unit.

The grinders have been prone to failure in these units - that would be my first suspicion.

Can hear the grinder and brewing unit run but only hot water comes out


Have you completely opened and cleaned the entire unit yet? I sounds like your coffee is not passing from the grinding area to the basket; so when the brew cycle starts, it is just running the hot water over an empty grounds basket.
Make sure that the unit is unplugged before cleaning it.

Solis palazzo not producing coffee


I think the blockage might be at the brew unit, remove unit and check the screen under the red o-ring, connected to that is the chute that leads to the espresso spout. That tube might be blocked, there are 2 screws holding that piece together, be careful when you remove them do not lose the spring and ball in the fitting. Clean tube and reassemble.

I have got a master 5000 and the brew unit gets jammedor locks when goes on brew mode.


Hi
There are a couple (3) of things that can cause this.
1. You have a broken brew drive but you would hear a clicking noise if this happens.
2. You have an over charge going into you brew unit. There is a small knob in your bean hopper. Turn it back 1 mark and try again.
3. Your grinder has come apart and is grinding very coarse. (French press size) New grinder.

No coffeer comes out of the coffee spouts, maybe the steel filters are dirty, how can I cean them?


Before the instructions on how to clean the filters, Check the grinder to make sure is set properly.
It might be set too fine
.

Cleaning the brew unit filters
.

Wipe away any coffee residues from the steel filter in the funnel of the
brew unit with a sponge.
The chrome filter to the left of the funnel can be removed for thorough
cleaning. Check and clean the chrome filter regularly.
^ Remove the brew unit.
^ Fit the enclosed allen wrench (that you got with your machine) to the
connection point (see illustration in your manual) in the brew unit. Turn it
counterclockwise while supporting the chrome filter from below.
^ Remove the chrome filter with the screw.
^ Clean the filter with hot water and dry.
^ Return the chrome filter to the brew unit and secure it by turning the allen
wrench clockwise. Press slightly against the filter to allow threading.

My machine has been sent away as it wouldn't dispense coffee - you could hear it grind the beans - the expert has said that the board is "gone" as it has had water on it and will cost $450 to repair!!. I...


More than likley its not the board. 3 things can cause this to happen depending on whats happening.
The only way the board can get water on it is to have a leaking hose or manifold but the board could be cleaned unless its has shorted, but then you would have had smoke coming out of the machine.
1. Brew unit. To check the brew unit, push the scoop button and then any coffee button. If you get water dispensing your brew unit is good. If nothing you have a clog in the brew head and just need to clean it.
2. The grinder is grinding too fine and is backing up in the grinder passage between the grinder and the doser. Open the big knob in the bean hopper to the max (18), now turn the small knob to the minus (-). If it works, turn the big knob back down, but only when its grinding, or you will break the grinder. Turn it down to a # that is a couple larger than what you had when you had the problem.
3. There is no design flaw in these machines. Its all in the set up. If they are set up correctly they will work forever, if taken care of. I got mine in 2004 and makes between 6 and 10 cups a day.

If the grounds are really wet and not looks like a round firm cake, you need to use coarser grist on the grinder. The water in the drip tray is coming from the brew unit. The o-rings are not holding the pressure inside because the sieve is clogged. It could also be that the o-ring are dirty, then the brew unit needs to be disassembled and cleaned.

A good way to controll if the grist is too fine, is to watch if the coffee is just dripping from the outlet. Then try adjusting the grinder until the coffee flows evenly. You can also hear if the pump works harder during brewing.

Your chute between the grinder and the brew unit is "glued" with coffee. Take out the the brew unit, clean it under water. Take a vaccum cleaner and put the pipe into the hole where the coffee falls into the brew unit. Move the bean container "hard" in and out ( knocking inside the maschin to loose the blockage). Switch in the main menue all to factory defaults. Put the grinder "level" into the middle again. start a brew unit cleaning process. After that you coffee must be ok again. Do not use oily beans or coated beans. the block the chute.

Flashing water light - will drain water but will not make coffee


Something is wrong on the coffee cycle side of the machine. Check the brew unit screens and and try doing a preground cycle with out inserting coffee. IF water comes out, I would looking into your grinder a little bit and try increasing the grinder size.

The machine won't start up


in the self test does it flush the unit ? If not you have to prime the unit by allowing it to pump hot water through the frothing valve. Open the valve and the pump should pulse water out. After this the machine should indicate it is in the operating mode for coffee
