Question about Bosch Benvenuto B20 Espresso & Coffee Maker
I started the cleaning process, and emptied the trays. When I put them back in, it tells me to empty them. I cleaned the insides where the tray sits and cleaned the contacts. What next?
After I cleaned the tabs really well, I still had the same problem. So, I took the back off so I could get to the "switches" that close the feedback circuits for the "Trays Missing" and "Clean Trays" messages. Long story short, you DON'T need to take the back off. You can solve the problem if you remove the trays and carefully remove the right side metal tab. This will stop the false readings, at least it did for me. Save the tab if for some reason you need to it later.
To remove the right side tab, use something like an eye glass screwdriver or butter knife to pry it up and out of the two small holding tabs. Then rotate the metal tab up and away from the tray and it will fall right off. Pictures below.

Also clean the receptacle inside the machine (where the tray tabs connect). Q-tips or steel wool on a stick work well.

You need to clean behind/around the tabs where they reach into the tray. I have this same problem all the time, you need a brush or something and running water to really get behind the tabs. For some reason the cleaning process seems to get lots of gunk behind the tabs.
