Question about Jura Capresso Impressa E8 Espresso/Coffee Maker
The drawer will not go in if the empty grounds container is in it. This has happened before and we just took out the container and turned the machine on and off and then it worked. There is something in the back that is blocking it and I cannot get it to reset.
This just happened, I found that if you (1) remove the drawer, (2) turn off machine and wait a bit, say a minute or so (3) turn it back on and finally replace the drawer WITHOUT the grounds bucket it will (may?) reset itself. Don't forget to replace the grounds bucket afterwards.
As mentioned this is because the flap gets out of sync, I believe I caused this by having too much powder in the powder container.

I too have had this problem (usually after a cleaning cycle that gets out of sync). My solution is two-fold. One put the drawer back without the bucket and it sometimes will fix itself. If not, carefully (when the machine is not hot) pull the level back gently. With a towel (or paper towel) rub the grounds off the flat surface just above this plastic lever. You won't be able to see, but sometimes the ground build up and block. In fact, I now make it a part of the cleaning cycle reminder to also clean this inside part of the machine. The drawer area gets a lot of residue from ground coffee. I have found that keeping this area cleaner than it will on its own can often times reset and even prevent this lever from falling out of sync.

It's strange that this is so simple, yet every time it happens to me, i still forget. here is what you do. you can turn the machine off and unplug it for a minute, but, you dont even need to do that i dont think.
1st open the tap. next insert the tray only (without the drawer) into the machine. The machine will say shut tap and then will begin heating or resetting. Then it will say "missing drawer". you can then remove the tray and insert the drawer. Hope it works!

This happened to me. I found some type of plastic latch hanging down in the back by feel. Wiggled it gently into place and then put the drawer in. Wish I could give more detail but I did it all by feel and it took only a few seconds once I started. I got the sense that there is a feature that when working correctly presses against the back of the grounds bin. It raises and lowers appropriately but when it gets out of sync it is in the down position while the drawer is out. Pressing harder is an expensive and unproductive option.
