Error code is displayed to inform the user of the problem. Coffee machines offer several options for classifying breakages depending on the type, structure and specification of the model line. If you know the exact number of your model, you will easily detect the essence or location of the breakdown according to the code that appeared on the information panel. See the table below.

Error 8 siemens coffee machine

The error goes away after unplugging, but not for good: it is imperative that you eliminate the cause, which is usually in the grinder.

  • Unplug the machine
  • Remove the drip tray and open the side door on the right-hand side of the unit, to get to the grinder. Make sure there are no debris or unused beans in the hopper. If necessary, clean it.
  • You can clear the system effectively using a vacuum cleaner, as the powerful suck-in air flow will pervade every tiniest hole and take all dust away. You do not need to disassemble your machine, so you will not have any warranty problems.
