What is the margin for error with the timed programming to produce a predictable weight of coffee for a given bean and grind setting?  Since there is no manual dosing it could get finicky if it isn't reliably reproducible

Fill Container

my Gaggia Platinum started this a while back.  Even when there are plenty of beans in the hopper, it will grind them, and then not brew.  The dry ground are pushed through to the waste bin and the message reads " fill container".  Any thoughts?
