IMPORTANT: Do not place ground coffee, freeze-dried coffee, caramelized coffee or foreign objects into the coffee bean container, as they could damage the machine.

  • Push the coffee system back into the housing. It is now ready for normal use.


The blend of coffee is unsuitable

  • Use a blend of coffee specifically for coffee machines.
  • If using a dark roast oily bean exclusively, try a lighter roast drier bean. 


  • Check and clean inlet to coffee feed
  • Gently vacuum the inlet to remove any stones from the coffee bean mix that inadvertently become lodged in the grinder.
