Coffee beans empty

My machine starts grinding then comes back saying "coffee beans empty". It also has a faint smell like something burning. Is there some maintenance that should be done on the grinder or anywhere else that may affect this part of the process? Thank you

Try changing the beans to a different brand I had this same problem with the brands that were around $30 a kilo but not with the cheaper ones. They seem to clump together and not drop in to feed the grinder. It could be that you just need to adjust either the internal or external grinder settings also.

Delonghi magnifica evo never stops grinding coffee beans

Ground coffee beans can squirrel their way into hard to reach places in a grinder and cause problems. I think it is clogged with grounds. Remove the beans. Reseat the burr (grinder). Reset the adjustment ring to 3. Lock itin place with the silver handle. Reinstall the hopper and beans. Here is a tutorial on more advanced cleaning and maintenance: You can skip the ad.

Coffee beans empty but not

Could Be one of 2 things, the grind is set too fine and the beans are not getting to the millstones, or there is something blocking the chute for the grounds.

Funny smell when grinder operates. like burning rubber or something.

Open the bean chamber and vac out the coffee, then adjust grind to about 2 numbers coarser then try, if the smell is still there then you will have to clean out the grinder chamber by disassembling, and removing the object causing the smell.

The machine won't start up

in the self test does it flush the unit ? If not you have to prime the unit by allowing it to pump hot water through the frothing valve. Open the valve and the pump should pulse water out. After this the machine should indicate it is in the operating mode for coffee
