FILL TANK

The water tank is empty or positioned incorrectly.

Fill the tank with water and/or insert it correctly, pushing it as far as it will go.

GROUND TOO FINE ADJUST MILL AND (alternating with) PRESS OK

  • The grinding is too fine and the coffee is delivered too slowly.
  • The machine cannot make coffee as there is air in the hydraulic circuit. Possible cause: the filter has not been installed correctly.
  • Turn the grinding adjustment knob one click clockwise towards "7".
  • Make sure the filter (A26) is properly installed and that the installation has been carried out correctly.

GROUND TOO FINE ADJUST MILL AND (alternating with) PRESS OK (then) FILL TANK

The tank has been removed during delivery.

Insert the tank and press the OK icon (B9). “HOT WATER PRESS OK” is displayed.

EMPTY WASTE COFFEE CONTAINER

The waste coffee container (A4) is too full or more than 3 days have passed since you last made coffee (this guarantees correct hygiene of the machine).

Empty the waste coffee container and clean, then replace.

When removing the drip tray, the waste coffee container MUST be emptied, even if it is not completely full. If this is not done, when you make the next coffees, the waste coffee container may fill up more than expected and clog the machine.

INSERT WASTE COFFEE CONTAINER

After cleaning, the waste coffee container has not been replaced.

Open the service door and insert the waste coffee container.

ADD PRE-GROUND COFFEE

  • The “pre-ground coffee” function has been selected without placing any preground coffee in the funnel.
  • The funnel (A21) is blocked.

PLEASE DESCALE!

The machine must be descaled.

  • The descaling procedure described in the “Descaling” section needs to be performed as soon as possible. 

LESS COFFEE

Too much coffee has been used.

Select a milder taste or reduce the quantity of preground coffee, then make the coffee again.

FILL BEAN CONTAINER

The coffee beans have run out.

Fill bean container.

Insert the brewing unit as described in the section ‘Cleaning’, under “Cleaning the brewing unit”.
