Hi, our machine has intermittently stopped brewing coffee and grinding. after removing brew unit, cleaning and cooloing down machine,it worked again but today even this has not helped.
Machine grinding beans now but after that there is only hot water being dispensed into cup, with no coffee. The cycle sounds "right" but when you look in the cup there is only hot water there. The machine has said "descale" for past week but I haven't got around to buying anymore descaling solution but will do so, today. Could this be a 'descaling needed" problem or is something else likely to be wrong. The machine is 5 years old almost and has made 8,500 coffees.

This a normal operation. As much fine is the coffee grinding is set then the water make it more difficult to pass through and when the coffee process finish the water remains in the piping sytem after pressure lelease in the try under brew group. All you need to take care is that the grinding is not adjusted too fine thus runnig very slow and coffee will be burned and become bitter. Also you need to remove the brew group very often and clean it with warm water and every month remove the st. steel filter from brew and clean it so all holes are open from dry coffee. You can also use the special coffee cleaning tablets to perform a cleaning proccess so the machine remains in good shape.

Try this first. Empty the brew unit of any coffee. Then pull the lever at the top center of the door with the + & - on it to the -. then make a coffee. There is a micro swithh in the doser box that can get coffee dust a in it and not operate properly. It may need to be replaced.
HI There is a lever on the top of the door that has a + to the back and a - to the front. Pull the lever back 1 click to the front or - side. Your putting too much coffee in the brew unit and could break the brew drive.
After a tons of browsing and debugging finally I got the real solution to my similar problem with a Saeco Minuto HD8763 coffee machine: the root cause was a bad hall sensor and a weak magnet at the grinder toothwheel (the left magnet whcih was removed from it's original place). The upper one was okay and down under there is the replacement magnet which I made from a piece of HDD neodymium magnet and glued to fix it.
The original hall sensor was marked as "210k 3491" ("HAL506K" based on some other service manuals) and the new one was a cheap non-smd but same size, unipolar "TLE4905" type.
Hi thedalys. you probably have a bad micro switch on your doser. and that just needs to be replaced. If the grinder does not sense that the doser box is full it will keep grinding until it times out.
Guest. Try pulling the dosage lever back one click from the full and push your grind lever to the largest # and see if that helps. Sounds like you grinds are too fine and its clogging the the grind box. If the dosage level is too full it will cycle and dump the brew unit or break the brew drive gears, then you will hear a clicking noise when it trys to make a coffee.
Hi Are your coffee grinds wet? If they are you have a clogged brew head. Remove the filter screen. Then remove the 2 screws that hold the outlet manifold to the brew head. There are 3 things under the manifold. O-ring, tapered spring and a crystal ball. Don't lose any of these items. Now to clean the brew head turn the brew unit over to where you can see where the brew screen was. You will see 2 holes, 1 large and 1 small. Take a paper clip and straighten it. Turn the brew unit upside down and insert the paperclip into the small hole. Push the paper clip through and remove the plug. I have seen them over 1/2" long. Reassemble the brew unit crystal ball first, small end of the spring on top of the crystal ball, place the o-ring over the spring and place the manifold on top making sure the outlet pipe is to the outside of the brew unit. Put the 2 screws back and your ready to go. Run a detergent for espresso machines like Cafiza through the brew unit every once in a while to keep it clean. It doesn't take a lot of detergent and use the pre-grind setting and a large cup selection but don't put any coffee in.
