Tip & How-To about Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
One possible problem is to try to clean the group shower which it can be ansrew by one center screw and if you can you can open the machine and remove to clean also the coffee group solenoid valve. Both the valve and shower can be full of dry coffee that can blocked the way of water coming to the grounded coffee.
One other posibble problem is the vibrating water pump. It might be full of scale and it can not create any pressure or it is completetly damage and need to be replaced.
First we sugest to perform a descaling of the machine and try again.
Second you should try to reduce by little the quantity of the grounded coffee used. Aprox you should use 7 to7.5 gr of coffee. If you try to use about 6 to 6.5 and you have the coffee runing out from the machine like in 25 sec you have about 30 cc of water.
If you manage to clean everything above and the machine work ok so from now on in order to avoid the problem again try to flush water from the group many times without any coffee. With this is like you wash the group shower and valve from any remai coffee.
