When "EMPTY GROUNDS CONTAINER" is displayed, the grounds container must be emptied and cleaned. Unless you clean the grounds container, the above message will continue to be displayed and the appliance cannot be used to make coffee. To clean (with the machine turned on): 1. Remove the drip tray, empty and clean. 2. Empty the grounds container and clean thoroughly to remove all residues left on the bottom. 3. Check the red condensate tray and empty if necessary.
When removing the drip tray, the grounds container must be emptied, even if it contains few grounds. If this is not done, when you make the next coffees, the
grounds container may fill up more than expected and clog the machine
