Unplug the unit to reset it. That will give you a short term solution. I had the same problem, my machine is only 4 months old. They sent me a new one. I was told that there is no way to fix the problem for good. The unit is defective. Luckily I registered my machine right after I got it, and I kept my receipt They sent me out a new one, free of charge! It took about a week to get it..
Hi. Sounds like a blocked or jammed brew unit. Remove brew unit and clean. To properly do this, you need to disassemble the brew unit. Canbe quite hard to do. The brew units are usually held together with plastic tabs, and may have to remove some screws to allow these tabs to release units assembly. Dazza REPAIRER
What will the machine do when you turn it on? The green light will start flashing for warming up phase. When it reaches the working temperature, all the lights start flashing in anticlockwise direction and the brew group moves up and start pumping water to rinse the system.Of course half an inch of water will come out from the spout. That is normal.
I had the same problem, two green flashing lights with one red (water) all 3 would just keep flashing and not turn solid. No coffee can be made or hot water. I could not pump prime. The problem was the steam wand was blocked with old milk residue. It needs unblocking or you will never pump prime. I could not unscrew the steam wand...so I let it sink in a glass full of hot water for a few minutes and then turned the water knob counter clockwise to push out the softened residue. After that, everything was good. When water started flowing out of the steam wand, the red light turned off and the green lights turned solid. The obvious answer to why you can't pump prime is there is a blockage somewhere and best to start with the steam wand. --Mabada
Is your grinder in and the lid down? My coffee maker (grind & brew) started beeping after I cleaned it and turned the left knob clockwise with the grinder still disassembled. There's a little button that is depressed when you close the lid with the grinder in there (I'd guess it's a safety feature). I pressed down that button, and the beeping went away.
Mine sometimes does this but cleaning the barcode reader at the top of the machine (small glass panel) fixed it.
Also make sure the water container is seated correctly. If these dont fix it try pushing the water container left right/back front while there is a disc in the machine-mine has started to only work if I push the fitted water container backwards when "brewing".Its out of warranty now so I will make do until it breaks completely.
