Doesn't Warn When Bean Hopper is Empty

My machine doesn't warn me when the bean hopper is empty. It just trys to brew anyway and produces a murky cup of hot watter.

 

Am I missing something or is the machine broken?

I do get warnings for filling water tank, empying bins etc'

Sometimes, if you have been using darker, oilier beans, this can happen-the burrs never touch, so the machine never registers that it is out of beans.  There are a few things you can try-get a really light, dry bean and run that through it for a few days, which should absorb the oils on the burrs and cause it to register again.  Alternatively, take all the beans out by hand and vacuum out the grinder chamber and the bypass chute, then let it air dry overnight with the top off, then add in a handful of beans to test.  Should that not clear up the issue, it would need to come in for service.

Thanks. I switched to Illy Medium Roast coffee beans and sure enough, after a few cycles, it started detecting the empty hopper again.
