Hello all,

I have a small problem with an EQ.5 (TE501503DE), the one with the 6 status lights and the 3 round buttons.

Have started last week the descaling program, whereby the machine has then hung up at some point, nothing went more reasonable. have then performed the next day the factory reset and the descaling program then ran through.

Now everything runs satisfactorily again, coffee also tastes good and has a nice crema.

The only thing that goes wrong now:

When switching on or off, the machine does not rinse over the coffee spout but the water ends up in the drip tray... The
rest works perfectly.
What is going wrong here or which part is defective?

Many thanks in advance,

My tip would be drain valve, brew valve or decrepit pump.
A new coffee spout can also do no harm with thousands of purchases.
