I a similar problem with my machine. I went 3-4 days without making coffee before i went to take it back. However, when i unplugged it, then plugged it back in, it worked. I didn't figure out why, but i've had to do this twice now. (Hasn't happened in a while.)

Good Luck

When making espresso half way through the pump quits working and display back light blinks with all icons lit. The steamer works fine, it is just when making espresso.


Most likely you will see the problem when doing a single or double espressos and when just producing hot water. All these three functions work based on specific amounts of water. Most likely your flow meter is not working properly. I replaced my flow meter (< $20) and the unit now works fine.

Water is leaking into the drip tray.


Clean the chamber below the white plastic valve, there is also a small discharge that leads from there into the drain tray clean that hole also.
Second the thermostat that controls the steam may be damaged or the cpu board, the contact the controls the steam may be damaged, i have seen both of those happen on some units.

Grinding coffee but water not making coffee


Check to make sure the quantity button has not been reprogrammed. To do so, push and hold the coffee button until coffee flows through. Also be sure to check the brew-unit. In some cases if the b-unit is plugged, it will not allow water to flow through. Also check to be sure you are not grinding too fine, if coffee is too fine it too will plug the chamber...........Hope it helps.

Starbucks Sirena. lights blink, won't heat.


johnshami had this solution on another post, and it worked for us:
  1. make sure the water in the tank is stone cold -- which is a no brainer since it will not heat h2o unless it's primed.
  2. take off steamer wand cover, turn the steamer knob clockwise till pump starts.
  3. then s*ck (as you would on a straw, with your lips sealed around the end of the steamer wand) the tip of the end of the metal tip hard until pump stops
  4. may need to do it a couple of times. yes this seems crazy, but it works! you are flushing out the vapor lock in the pump.

You may have a flow meter that is bad. If its white plastic check for corrosion at the wire terminals. If your have corrosion change the meter and you should be good to go.

The espresso side of the machine stops pumping water after 5 seconds or so. At the same time the espresso on/off button and main display start blinking. Pushing the hott water/steam button will reset this...


The clue here is that the problem involves the hot wate and the single or double espressos. These three functions require accurate water measurements and they are programmable. It appears that the flow meter is not sending the correct information to the control unit. This could happen if you have blockages or if the flow meter is not working anymore. Most likely you need a new flow meter which only costs about $20 and should not be too difficult to replace. It is located between the water tank and the pump.

Gevalia CM-500 12 cup problem.


Underneath the hot pad that the carafe sits on, there are two thermal fuses that are inside tubes that are clamped to the heating element with spring clamps.

Remove the bottom of the unit (5 screws), unclamp the thermal fuse tubes, slide the tubes to one side and check the each fuse with an ohmmeter. If one of them is open, that's your problem.

Water won't flow through the tubes


You might need to prime the pump manually since the machine has been moved.
directions:
Fill water tank.
Turn power on.
Open the steam knob all the way.
Press the coffee button.
Put a cup under the steam pump wand.
Wait until you see a steady flow of water and no air.
When you see the flow of water, close the steam knob.
Turn off the coffee button.
Now the machine should be ready to brew an espresso.
If that does not work you can contact the service center for more suggestions:
