Check the grounds that may have fallen in the slots where the drip pan and ground collector go into the machine. I found that using a hand held vacuum to clean it out allows the pans to go back in easy. If it cannot go in because part of the packer in still in its discharge position, then shut off the unit WITHOUT the grind collector in place. Wait a minute and turn it back on, the coffee grinder packer will go back to its original position and you can put the grinder collection bin back into the unit.

There are a couple of metal stripes on the back of the tray make sure they are clean and that the spot in the machine where they will contact is also clean.

Saeco energica is half way through descaling cycle but is getting stuck how do I reset


Thoroughly clean the drip tray before putting it back may help. If there is still coffee inside which is wet the sensor may see this as water which is still in the drip tray.

Empty Tray


@Derekns74 How do you remove the switch? My C3000 also reads "EMPTY TRAY" constantly, even if the tray is empty and clean. It does not display the "EMPTY GROUNDS" error only "EMPTY TRAY"

If I remove the tray it display "TRAY MISSING" but whenever I insert the tray again, it reads "EMPTY TRAY"

On one occasion when our power went out, it fixed the machine, so that it stopped reading "EMPTY TRAY," but after a day or two it stopped working and displayed the same EMPTY TRAY error message again.

It says driptray full, but it isn't? Any ideas?


Wevhave had ours into the shop four times for the erroneous 'coffee grounds' and drip tray' emptying. They have changed the mother board, chip in the door and even looked at the head gasket and carburettor settings but can't find the source of the problem.
What we have found latelt (it's Christmas so everything is closed for a month) is if we leave it overnight without power, 3 out of 4 times it resets itself.
It's apain if it plays up during the day but mornings brings us a good cuppa more often than not.lesson-get a deLonghi next time, this Saeco brand is more trouble than they are worth.

Impressa z5 grounds empty will not reset even though the tray has been empty and the contacts cleaned


If the machine says TRAY MISSING it's the contacts at the back so clean as other people have stated, you can also use a cardboard nail file to clean the contacts at the back if there really skanky!.

If the machine keeps saying EMPTY GROUNDS even though you have, pull out the tray, look just inside the aparture where the tray goes top right at the front there is a small slot where if you look closely you can see a small white micro switch. This will be probably gunged up with coffee and the switch will be stuck up, get a can of WD40 and squirt a small amount up into the switch then poke the switch with a small screwdriver up and down until it moves smoothly.

Then replace all the bits, sit down, look smug and have a coffee cos you've fixed it!! :0)

Light for add beans/empty grounds flashes continually although I've performed both things.


Check the area where the grounds tray goes it is possible that there is some grounds preventing the tray from making contact with the microswitch.

Delonghi EAM 3400 keeps saying "Empty Grounds Container"


I think the microswitch that sensors the front door is not activated. Try to find it and "give it a massage" The machine resets the counter for the grounds container every time the door switch is activated.

This process takes about 35 minutes

1. Empty the water tank, drip tray and grounds container.
2. Insert tray and grounds container, refill tank with with 0.5 Lt. of water and add descaling agent (not the pill or powder used for clean cycle) to tank. Make sure its completely dissolved.

Display says Descaling and press OK
4. Press the water button

Display says Descaling in Progress
after the descaling agent is exhausted

Display says Empty Drip Tray and Spent Grounds
5 Also remove rinse and refill the water tank to Max line
6. Press the water button again

Display says Descaling in Progress
after the machine stops
7. Empty the drip tray and spent. ground container and replace

Missing tray error


Insert the tray-all of it except the grounds container.  The message disappears and you can wait until the machine continues it's cycle and then asks to empty the tray.  Empty the tray and place the grounds container back inside.  Whew, I've done this a few times over the years when I am rushing but it fixes it every time.

EMPTY GROUNDS warning will not reset


The solution was referenced in one of the earlier postings but I wanted to clarify in case people are misunderstanding. The two metal contacts at the back of the machine insert into the wall of the machine and tell the coffee maker that the tray is inserted. Sometimes the big, flat, readily visible portion of these contacts get dirty and I think people are focusing on this portion of the contacts. However, the metal contacts also bend down into the tray where they can detect water (basically if there is enough water or material to conduct between the two contacts then the machine tells you to empty the try). This is the portion where you need to focus on cleaning, down in the tray, between the narrow plastic valley at the back of the tray. It will require Q-tips or something to really push down into the tray to clean away from the contacts. I did not have water in the tray but had enough moist old coffee grounds that it was causing the issue. I cleaned this area with water, a toothbrush and Q-tips and ensured it was very clean and dry. I have not seen the issue again in months (my coffee maker is three years old, gets used daily and we keep it relatively clean, but this is the first time we've gotten this error).
