Here's the deal: The machine doesn't actually know if the drawer is full or not (there's no sensor in there). All it does is count how many times you make a cup of coffee, then it assumes that the drawer must be full after a certain number of brews (I think it's 15 or so).

All you have to do is, while the machine is ON (it won't work while the machine is off): 1) open the front of the machine; 2) slide out the bottom metal piece; 3) pull out the dregdrawer (it's the black plastic cup thing on the bottom left) and replace it. Then the machine thinks you've emptied it and resets it's counter.

Again, if you do this while the machine is OFF it can't tell that you've taken the drawer out and in so it doesn't reset. Leave machine ON, take dregdrawer out, put it back in, shut the door, and you're good.

I read somewhere that there is a counter in the machine that when a certain amount of shots are done, the counter will reach its limit and tell you to empty the drawer, even if it's not full.

When I get the message I open the door, remove the drawer and it goes away once you replace it. Don't know why the machine would stop working though?

Gaggia titanium machine, display says dregdrawer missing, even when I've clicked drawer back in place after cleaning it...


Hi
Either your tab is broken on the back of your dredge drawer or your microswitch has been moved from its correct position. There should be a tab on the back of the dredge drawer. If not you need a new dredge drawer.

When I turn my saeco royal cappuccino machine on then it tells me that the dregdrawer is full but it isnt full. So can anybody tell me whats the problem? Maybay the drawers sensor is broken or something?


Drawer sensor (activated by horizontal tab on left side of drawer) works on the weight (like a mini scale) of the drawer when full. The motion of the sensor can become restricted due to grinds limiting the movement upward to the default position.
If 'stuck', the sensor thinks the drawer is heavy and therefore full.
Clean it (old toothbrush, hot water, steam run from your spigot) so it moves freely and your problem should be solved.
Happy brewing!!

Dregdrawer full


Check the back of the drain tray make sure there are no grinds. Then we will have to test the micro switches, remove the drain tray and dregs drawer, insert tray without the drawer, to see if you get an error. A more complicated way is to have the door open place tray minus drawer in machine, then using a small stray or plastic knife, activate the microswitches.

Dregdrawer Full


There is no 'sensor' for this, an internal counter resets when you remove the drawer with the machine switched on and the "Dreg drawer Full" message displayed.
Make sure the machine displays this message "DREG DRAWER FULL" Do NOT turn off the machine, Pull out the drawer that the used grinds are dumped in(you have to remove the drip tray 1st) Check display - it should read "DREG DRAWER MISSING" If the display message is correct, wait 10 seconds then replace the drewer.
Message should be cleared.
If the "dreg drawer missing" does not display, you do have a bad sensor and machine needs to be serviced.

Gaggia syncrony compact digital - DREGDRAWER MISSING


the thing that dropped out was part of the micro switch for the dregs draw. Yes you can use the machine with the piece that you put in there, at some time you might consider just replacing the micro switch.

"dregdrawer" is full


Hi,

You must have the dregs box out of the machine 5-10 sec and the machine have to be power on.
If it still not get to work then try this:

Make sure the pin on the side not is worn, the pin goes to a microswitch in the machine.
If it is worn then try to put a tape on it to see if help.

Best regards
