I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

Ok before being stuck did the capsule go in ok, and draw coffee as expected?

Hi James yes it worked perfectly with all pods including galexy pods

OK it sounds like the mechanism has jammed, it would need stripped down to free the mechanism.

As its under warranty I would suggest getting the retailer to replace the unit, as by stripping it down yourself you would invalidate the warranty.
