General alarm means the machine has detected a serious fault. There is a section in the instruction manual that may help. If not, read on.
Persistent "General Alarm"
This means many things. If the transmission is not stuck, check the main boiler has not burnt out (open circuit). This happens when the thermoblock labyrinth runs dry and overheats, a common problem caused by leaks, limescale, milk blockages or water filter contamination. Replacing the boiler is the only fix, a difficult and expensive process, experienced fixers (or nothing to lose) only.
If the transmission is getting stuck there may be obstructions, the lead screw may be worn or the limit switches could be faulty. If cleaning and grease on the screw/bearings don't help then replacement is a tricky job only for confident hands. Approach with caution.
