Ok if brew unit is displayed,the cause is the brew unit needs to be to cleaned of all old grease and coffee grounds.
Once cleaned you will need to regrease the big oring at the top of the brew unit,pretty much anywhere that moves needs to be lubed and the two smaller ones near the back of the dreg drawer.
In some cases a tight or siezed brew unit can damage the main control board.

Brew unit blocked message The brew unit removed and switches jumped, motor turns message still blocked brew unit . what could it be and ways to tests.

I had the same issue. Very difficult to fix. You must remove brew unit and reset the machine while apart. You must trick the machine to think brew unit is installed and door closed. Look at door and brew unit and use screwdriver or butter knife to engage machine and run through cycle to reset.

Water is being heated in the reserve but no water coming out at all

Send us brand / model please and thank you.

My initial thought is concern as water should not be heated in the reserve. It may be warmed through conduction but not deliberately. The reserve should keep water fresh until it is used for brewing. Not that this addresses your concern directly. You still aren't getting water fed where it is needed. . .

Most coffee makers have a "pause" function where if the pot is removed the water will not flow from (or to) the brew area and if the mechanical trigger for this feature is blocked, stuck, or jammed it will pause permanently. Similarly espresso pumps will not draw unless certain features are "in place" and standing-by. My initial guess is this safety / convenience function is malfunctioning for you.

Sorry I could not be of more assistance.

My gaggia titanium says it's brew unit is blocked

Try cleaning and relubing the brew unit.
If that fails you require a new main board.

Dredgedraw has been locked in by brewunit and won't release

dredge draw being locked usually means the brewgroup is locked in place. Brewgroup locked in place will stop the dredge draw from coming out.

Now the question is why did the brew group locked up. There's a screw on the brew group that you can unfasten, turn the machine on and it may set it back to default position. Then you screw it back in and everything shoudl be fine.

If the group doesn't go back to default it could be a few other things. If it doesn't set back to default and is still locked up i'd suggest sending it in to a repair shop as it could be broken gears, compacted coffee in the brew group, or a dead brew group motor.
