The locks shut due to a pressure build up in the pod chamber usually caused by a blocked filter in the centre of the pod holder.

The only way to open the unit is to releive the pressure. The pressure will normally reduce over time, the duration being determined by the pressure build up, condition of pod seals and the strength of the blockage.

A quick DIY solution: (small cable tie and screwdriver required)
Un plug the unit from the mains:
Remove the water container and prise open the rear snap fit panel of the unit carefully using a screwdriver to expose the internal workings, the overflow pipe at the top of the cover must be disconnected to gain enough access to work on the unit.
.The small metal boiler in the centre of the unit is used to heat the water for the machine, if the boiler is still hot allow it to cool down sufficiently for work to commence.
The exit pipe at the top of the boiler feeds directly to the pod chamber, if you squeeze this pipe you will feel that it is under pressure. Cut the cable tie connecting the pipe to the boiler (be careful, dont cut the pipe) and remove the pipe to release the pressure, a small ammount of water will be released during the procedure. The lid should open.
Reconnect the pipe to the boiler replace the cable tie, refit the rear cover making sure to push the overflow pipe back on before you snap the cover shut.
Remove the pod holder and clear the blockage blow through the holder in the reverse direction to ensure the filter is clear.
Replace the pod holder and pour a small amount of water on to it. The water should exit through the delivery spouts if the path is clear.
JOB Done.

there should be a hose connecting the hole to the top of the water resevoir for venting (water expands when heated and the tank should always be full). If it is connected to a source of water (hot water on tap/ push to brew) it could also be a leak in the coil for the water on tap or the solonoid valve fo push to brew.

SOURCE: how do you disassemble the plastic cover off a

Pretty tough. You need a long phillips and flat head screw drivers. And you have to undo the screws then pop the plastic clips while pulling back on the top (hard to explain)

If you need parts here's where to go:

Gaggia Platinum Vision no power

You are correct it could be any of the possibilities you have mention.
It is worth checking the two thermal cutouts on top of the boiler.
These can be accessed by removing the top cover only.
If you press the center of the resets and you hear a click you have found the fault

I am Trying to Service a Vienna Saeco Coffee machine. I have removed the top covers and am trying to access the wiring under the heater and other parts for which I need to remove the chassis from the body....

-2 Phillips screws on the front (left and right under the fascia)
-1 torx in the back of the machine, under the water tank
-Hot water/steam knob that has to be removed: There is a clip that can be pressed with a tiny screwdriver (with the front door opened) which will let you pull the knob out.

Once this is all removed, you need to push with a screwdriver in a small whole from under the machine, beside the power cord. Pushing hard from one hand and pulling the whole thing up with the other should do it.

The coffee will go all over the counter. We did not get a manual with the coffee maker. Could I possibly be setting the pot incorrectly on the plate?

Check the following:
1. Make sure that you are using the correct size coffee filter in the basket. Only one filter is needed to allow proper drainage.
2. Check the spring loaded button on the bottom of the coffee basket. Remove the basket, put some water in the basket, push the button up to make sure the water is released from the basket.
3. Put the basket back in place, insert the carafe and check to make sure that the top of the carafe cover pushes up the button on the basket to release brewing coffee.

If all these check out, then there is an internal leak and the unit need to be repaired or replaced.

DGB 500 Grinder

You may try opening the front cover first and removing the filter then after opening the top lid, remove the clear grinder cover and lift the grinder from the rear. After you get it out be sure to clean the motor drive shaft and the bottom of the grinder. then use a trace of vegetable oil to lubricate the motor shaft where is attaches to the grinder.

We are on our second coffee maker and it makes great coffee.

Throws Breakers

Check the power cord for damage, and repair anything you find.

If confident enough, open the unit up and inspect all the internal wiring - check for chafed wires and for terminals that have come undone or that are touching anything they aren't obviously meant to.

Check the unit hasn't got wet inside - mop dry then leave to dry out properly in warm air for a couple of days if it has.

If that doesn't throw up anything obvious, then you're probably looking at insulation breakdown of some component (my money would usually be on the element). For a unit like this, I doubt it's economic to start buting spare parts, so you're probably better off buying a new coffee maker.

Good luck

Coffee maker won't start and just beeps when plugged in

The door on the top is not closed properly. When you open the top door(cover),you will see a button that is located on the top of the grinder cover. that is a switch that tells the coffee maker that the door is closed and can safely make coffee..please check that all parts are in place and top door(cover) is closed comepletly. good luck.
