Have you ever cleaned and lubricated the brew group?

You remove the tray and set it aside - then push to the right the plastic bar that says "press" and pull out the brew group. It comes out as a complete unit. You can rinse it under the sink - turn it over and rinse off the filter disk and rinse off any coffee grinds that may be stuck all over in the mechanism. Do not use detergent, do not put in the dishwasher. Just rinse it off really well.

The mechanism should be lubricated with food safe lubricant after about 500 coffees. There are two sets of tracks that are the main thing to lubricate. You can get the food safe silicon grease at any of the espresso shops like wholelattelove or seatle coffee gear etc. etc.

If the brew group moves freely after you have cleaned it, you need to make sure it is the home position - the round well with the black plastic shower screen at the bottom should be centered under the funnel that the coffee grinds drop into - and on the front face, below the "press" bar there is a round bushing with two arrows that show be pointing at each other showing that it is lined up in home position ready to be reinserted into the machine.

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:

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

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.

My brewunit is blocked


Coffee fines and mineral scale build up in the brew unit filters and also in the creme valve. The pressure to pump water through the unit fails and the flowmeter tells the electronics that no water has flowed, it in turn stops all processes and displays "brew unit blocked" message. If you're handy, call Miele tech support. The'll walk you through how to remove the drainage cup screw off the left rear of the brew unit, get the brew unit out and return the gearing to home position. It's a 50/50 chance the gears will return or you will need a service tech to pull your coffee unit out and re-sync the gears to the electronics. That's of course if they didn't break.
This blockage is is prevented only by using the cleaning tablets and descaling tablets. Both need to be used as outlined in the instruction manual.

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.

BrewUnit Blocked Error


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.

Brewunit block


kristijordan,

I had this error message on my machine and was able to take care of it by lubricating the brew unit with silicone. I small tube of silicone grease should have come with your machine. If not I found silicone grease at Aco Hardware (not in a tube) and applied it using a toothpick. Machine has been working great since.
