Anybody have experience with this issue? I have tried unplugging it and all but to no avail.
Thermador Coffee Maker BICM24CS Error 8
Posted 04 April 2014 - 05:41 AM
Initialisation of the brewing unit has failed.
The brewing unit cannot be moved into the upper end position.
This may be due to several causes, e.g.:
► Incorrect operation – the brewing unit was filled with too much
preground coffee or with whole coffee beans via the ground
► Incorrect operation – cleaning tablet was inserted too early
and blocked the brewing unit.
► Wrong coffee settings – too much, too finely ground coffee.
► Wrong grinding unit setting – grinding too coarse, amount too
If the message does not go out when the appliance is switched off and
on again, disconnect the appliance from the power supply and clean
the upper filter in the brewing unit with a damp cloth (kitchen roll). To
do this, remove the drip tray and access the appliance from the front.
► If required, readjust the grinding unit setting.
From production date FD8701 on: Check microswitch for drip tray
detection and its trigger on the drip tray. Gear motor is only actuated if
the microswitch is closed.
