You need to clean the grinding chamber and the ground coffee outlet.

Have you tried to clean the grinder? If you have used oily beans, the burrs can become clogged, and when the machine tries to grind, it is not able to complete the dose. Then the machine dumps to start again. This is a frustrating feature, but if you remove the beans and vacuum out the chamber, that may solve the problem.

i don't know. using the same liquid volume, please consider running 3 fresh cups of white vinegar through the machine without putting in a puck.. it may just be that the hot water is being directed and restricted to one side of the puck because of a build up of lime. also, your owner's manual may offer other ideas about cleaning or flushing.

The sensor that detects the presence of dredge drawer is not closing. Locate it and fix it or just jump the wiring to the sensor.

I have the same exact problem with mine starting today, did you get this figured out? I'd love to know if it's fixable or not as I was planning on selling my previous machine. If it's an expensive repair, I'll just have to ditch this one and go back to my previous one.

The only thing I can think of is the reed switch on the back of the panel that checks the water level. If there is a float in the water tank check what level it is when it calls for refill, it might be in backwards, or the magnet has moved.
