Hi, our machine has intermittently stopped brewing coffee and grinding. after removing brew unit, cleaning and cooloing down machine,it worked again but today even this has not helped.
Machine grinding beans now but after that there is only hot water being dispensed into cup, with no coffee. The cycle sounds "right" but when you look in the cup there is only hot water there. The machine has said "descale" for past week but I haven't got around to buying anymore descaling solution but will do so, today. Could this be a 'descaling needed" problem or is something else likely to be wrong. The machine is 5 years old almost and has made 8,500 coffees.

Sounds like the grind is too fine. If its (the big knob) below 8 in the bean hopper, turn it to 16. You can turn the knob to a larger # anytime but you have to be grinding to turn to a smaller #. Make 3 coffee but push the button when it starts to brew to stop the brewing until you get to the third coffee and just let this one brew. If it brew correctly then turn the knob down to a # a couple higher than you had before.
After grinding did you hear the brew group goes up and pump start? If you hear the pump start and stopped, itis blockage in the brewunit metal screen. Just needs cleaning.
If you don't hear the pump starting, the problem is with the faulty micro switch inside the gearbox , that is behind the plate of brewunit.(service center job)
First you have a blockage in you grind passage. Try removing the brew group. Then inside on the roof of the machine where the brew unit was setting there is a drop chute where the coffee is dropped into the brew unit. From the left side of the drop chute pull down and back, and it will drop coffee. This will clear an opening that relieves pressure on the passage. There is a passage inside the drop chute area that goes to the grinder (towards the rear of the machine). Vacuum it out. It will be on the right side of the drop chute. Once that is cleared go to the bean hopper. There is a lever on the right side below the bean hopper. Push the lever back to the largest number. You can push the lever to a larger number any time but it has to be grinding to pull to a smaller number. Now replace everything and make your coffee. Once you have made your coffee you can pull back to a number that was higher than the one you had it on, but only when the grinder is running. The second thing brew unit missing. Open the door. Push hard on the upper left side of the brew unit. When you hear a click, close the door and the light should be out.
1. Open the front door.
2. Remove the driptray and brew unit.
3. Above where the brew unit was is an L shaped flap with a plastic triangle molded to it.
4. Pull the triangle down and to the rear of the machine. This will dump ground coffee.
5. That is your doser box and if you look up when the flap is open you will see a rectangular open on the right that is plugged with coffee.
6. Clean this out. I use a vacuum and **** it out, but anything to open this up again.
7. Once it is clean, go to your bean hopper and turn the large knob to the hightest number.
8. Now replace everything and try it again.
9. If it makes coffee, GREAT.
10. Next time your grinder is grinding turn the big knob down to a number 2 above where you had it.
Hi thedalys. you probably have a bad micro switch on your doser. and that just needs to be replaced. If the grinder does not sense that the doser box is full it will keep grinding until it times out.
Guest. Try pulling the dosage lever back one click from the full and push your grind lever to the largest # and see if that helps. Sounds like you grinds are too fine and its clogging the the grind box. If the dosage level is too full it will cycle and dump the brew unit or break the brew drive gears, then you will hear a clicking noise when it trys to make a coffee.
Hi Are your coffee grinds wet? If they are you have a clogged brew head. Remove the filter screen. Then remove the 2 screws that hold the outlet manifold to the brew head. There are 3 things under the manifold. O-ring, tapered spring and a crystal ball. Don't lose any of these items. Now to clean the brew head turn the brew unit over to where you can see where the brew screen was. You will see 2 holes, 1 large and 1 small. Take a paper clip and straighten it. Turn the brew unit upside down and insert the paperclip into the small hole. Push the paper clip through and remove the plug. I have seen them over 1/2" long. Reassemble the brew unit crystal ball first, small end of the spring on top of the crystal ball, place the o-ring over the spring and place the manifold on top making sure the outlet pipe is to the outside of the brew unit. Put the 2 screws back and your ready to go. Run a detergent for espresso machines like Cafiza through the brew unit every once in a while to keep it clean. It doesn't take a lot of detergent and use the pre-grind setting and a large cup selection but don't put any coffee in.
