Good Afternoon

Welcome to JustAnswer and thank you for your question. My name is***** am an expert from Germany and have been working as an equipment technician for 19 years. I work with a language translation program and I would be very grateful for your understanding.
I'm sorry I can't make a call, but another expert can do it for you if you want. I will try to help you as best I can via chat.
I am sorry that you faced this problem!

If the device has been thoroughly cleaned and an error message still appears, then the condensate pump is mostly blocked or defective at the bottom. You can test-tilt the device 45 ° forwards, wait a few seconds and then turn it back and tilt it 45 ° forwards again and then back it up again. You can try this a few times. It may then be that the blockade is lifted and the device is reset.

Please feel free to continue this topic if you have any further questions. I would be very happy to help you!
Kind regards,

No sorry that did not work the light empty container cane back on and machine stopped after 5 mins
Expert:  Erdal Zal replied 9 days ago.

Okay, then you really do have a problem with the condensate pump. There is also a float switch on the condensate pump that signals that the water must be pumped out or that the tank is full. Unfortunately, the unit must then be opened completely and the condensate pump checked with the switch. Do you have enough tools to do this?

My machine is still under warrantee why was I put on to this site and having to pay for advice please
Expert:  Erdal Zal replied 9 days ago.

I'm really sorry but of course I can't see out if they have warranty or not. We are manufacturer independent. I wrote that in my first message to you. We do not belong to the manufacturer. You have contacted us and made your enquiry.
