Error 8

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

coffee slot.

► 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.
