BrewUnit Blocked Error

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.

    I've tried and tried but the message is still the same BREWUNIT BLOCKED tho I can't find what could be causing the problem I have cleaned it and jogged all the moving parts with no success replaced it all in the unit a dozen times and it just won't start or make any noise like when it self tests

    Mine has just started doing the same. I've cleaned the stainless steel filters in the brew unit, but no joy. It sounds like the pump is not working properly - I'll have a look when I get a moment and let you know.

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.

The brew group is stuck and won't come out.What to do?


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

Brew unit stuck


Hi molly girl.
You can try to clean your Brewunit. Most of the times when that message appears, it means the brewunit is dirty

You can have more info in the manual if you dont have it:

No matter what I do the Gaggia Titanium espresso machine reads brewunit missing;. This is what I did: I removed the brewunit of the machine to clean it, and reset the N to the correct position on the front...


HI
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.

No coffeer comes out of the coffee spouts, maybe the steel filters are dirty, how can I cean them?


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.

Jura Capresso E8 keeps getting error code 8 over and over. I will clean, remove grounds etc, it will make a few espressos, then back to the error code. I can hear it struggling.


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.

Saeco odea giro is not grinding enough coffee.. the pad is like half or less than that.. it seems like a pcv problem .. HOw can I reset or reprogram to grind more coffee?


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.

Machine is stuck in rinse cycle and brewunit


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.

Saeco vienna saying brewunit blocked !


Hi 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.
