I already tried the other solutions, grinder reset, cleaning, lubricating, but the Brewunit Block error is still there. I can remove the brew unit without any problem and I can move the mechanism up and out of the funnel and into reset. I can fully move through all the positions. It looks very clean, but still a fault. I hope you have a solution.
The brew unit sensor may have become disconnected from the main circuit board. If you are very brave, you can UNPLUG THE UNIT, remove the top panel and check that all the wires running into the circuit board are connected.
Otherwise, the sensor may have failed and this will require service.

Hi. Its not an easy fix. The brewunit is stuck in cycle, with the injector pipe holding it in. The injector pipe is at the back behind the brewunit. You just need to use force by wriggling and jiggling the brewunit. There maybe some screws in the brewunit, that may help you if you undo them. If you do get the unit out, then you have to work out WHY it has not completed the cycle, so when you put the unit back in, that is not going to get stuck again. Ive spent 30 mins getting out a unit, only for it to get stuck again. For some reason, its easier to get the brewunit back out the second, or third time you try it.Sometimes you may have to break something to get it out. Id recomend taking it to a repairer and let them work it out. It can take hours of work and care must be taken, not to do too much damage. Even disassembly and reassembly or the outer panels canbe a challenge on these models. Saeco are a good machine, but are a dumb design when ti comes to stuck brew units. Sorry I cant be more help with this problem, but I hope its just a soiled brewunit, and once you've removed and cleaned it, It'll work fine again. Weekly cleaning tablet should stop it from happening again. Dazza
If the brew unit is in the wrong position when inserted you can knock the lever off the microswitch in the back. If the lever is knocked off you will never get the brw unit miss message to go away. You will have to take the machine apart and replace the lever on the microswitch. Sorry
We made a modification to the brew unit that would prevent this from happening. We modified all the brew units on the compact machines before sending them out so we would never get them back for this reason.
Before the instructions on how to clean the filters, Check the grinder to make sure is set properly. It might be set too fine.
Cleaning the brew unit filters.
Wipe away any coffee residues from the steel filter in the funnel of the brew unit with a sponge. The chrome filter to the left of the funnel can be removed for thorough cleaning. Check and clean the chrome filter regularly. ^ Remove the brew unit. ^ Fit the enclosed allen wrench (that you got with your machine) to the connection point (see illustration in your manual) in the brew unit. Turn it counterclockwise while supporting the chrome filter from below. ^ Remove the chrome filter with the screw. ^ Clean the filter with hot water and dry. ^ Return the chrome filter to the brew unit and secure it by turning the allen wrench clockwise. Press slightly against the filter to allow threading.
One of the problems that I see with these units is the Grinder setting. Sometimes the grinder is set too fine for Dark and Oily beans. This setting will ( can) clog up the brew screen after less than 10 cups are brewed. Also, running the cleaning tablets through to create a clean starting point may help you. Try turning the grinder to a slightly coarser setting and try that.
Hi,..These saeco models have a auto adjusting grinder. If the brewunit is heavy or in other words overloading, the machine will reduce the grinding time lesser to produce less ground coffee.If it senses the brewunit is smooth and light in loading (compressing the grounds), it will increase the grinding until it reaches the optimum dose. So it is important to clean and lubricate the brew unit at all times. Hope it will solve the problem. Good luck.
Take the brew unit out again, and try to twist the rotational mechanism so that the little arrows in the front of the axis align. This should allow you to insert the unit.
On insertion, you might also need to push the little handle on the front of the brew unit to allow the coffee trough to fit.
There is a test mode for the Digital and we can see if you have a bad power board.
Turn the machine off in back. Push and hold the small coffee button and the menu button (top left) at the same time and while you are holding the buttons turn the machine on. Release the buttons and you should have numbers in the display. If you can push the bottom left button and the machine makes a sound like the motor is moving, turn it off and then back on. If you don't get the message now you should really clean and lube your brew unit.
