Sounds like the grind is too fine and it is not flowing through fast enough, try adjusting the grind on the coffee or remove the sprayhead and clean the small holes using a paperclip.

My tray is filling with water and dry grounds are being dumped and no espresso is dispensing.


The passage of water is not passing through coffee grounds. The coffee powder is dumped dry & water is bypassing the brew group and draining into the tray.
Causes:
1- Machine was not descaled. or descaled with automatic method only, as suggested by Jura.

2- There is accumulation of Calcium in the hydraulic system, generating back pressure. This reduces the pump pressure and water cannot force its way through coffee grounds.
3- Stop using filter cartridges. Turn the reminders off.

Solution:
Descale machine manually every three months. See link. Services Unlimited Inc Parts Guru Since 1988

I cannot get the drawer to close completely on my Jura E8 in order for the "missing drawer" light to go off. I've unplugged the unit to allow chip to reset... nothing. I think the elevator is...


I have the same machine and this seems to happen if the grounds bin is pulled out before it goes through a full cycle. take both the grounds and water trays out. Try to fit the grounds bin around the "elevator", slide the grounds tray underneath that then the water tray as well. It should slide right in then the machine will complete the cycle and work just fine :)

Leaking coffee grounds and water


HI
There should be a small amount of coffee residue and about an oz. of water going into the drip tray. This is the pressure relief process, when the machine finishes the coffee making. If it didn't release the pressure thhis way you could have an explosion of coffee when it cycles back.

The tray (JURA J5) keeps indicating that it needs to be emptied inspite of it being empty. How can i fix this problemo? Thank you.


The connectors at the back have liquid on them use a lint free cloth to remove the liquid and the tray fault will go away. If you want to prevent this make sure that when you pour the water out the tray you pour it out the side not the back and this is how the liquid or debris gets stuck there

Whenever I brew a cup excess water and ground coffee fill the drip tray. What should I do?


HI
Its normal to relieve some water (half to 1 oz.) and coffee, but excess is caused by having the small knob in the bean hopper set to the minus side. Twist the knob towards the plus side but not all the way, as this can cause an over charge and dump dry grounds in the dredge drawer and not make coffee at all. Another cause is your grounds are too coarse. If this is the case, when the grinder is running twist the big knob in the bean hopper to a smaller # but only do 2 #'s at a time and then make at least 4 coffees before making the next change. You can get the grinds too fine and have an other problem.

EMPTY GROUNDS warning will not reset


The solution was referenced in one of the earlier postings but I wanted to clarify in case people are misunderstanding. The two metal contacts at the back of the machine insert into the wall of the machine and tell the coffee maker that the tray is inserted. Sometimes the big, flat, readily visible portion of these contacts get dirty and I think people are focusing on this portion of the contacts. However, the metal contacts also bend down into the tray where they can detect water (basically if there is enough water or material to conduct between the two contacts then the machine tells you to empty the try). This is the portion where you need to focus on cleaning, down in the tray, between the narrow plastic valley at the back of the tray. It will require Q-tips or something to really push down into the tray to clean away from the contacts. I did not have water in the tray but had enough moist old coffee grounds that it was causing the issue. I cleaned this area with water, a toothbrush and Q-tips and ensured it was very clean and dry. I have not seen the issue again in months (my coffee maker is three years old, gets used daily and we keep it relatively clean, but this is the first time we've gotten this error).
