Question about Espressione XP1 Espresso Machine
I filled the water reservoir and turn on the machine. It runs but no water is pulled to the pump.
Sounds like you need to prime the pump manually:
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.
You might need to do this if you have not used your espresso machine for a few weeks or if it has been moved.
if that does not work contact the service center:

I have taken the beast apart and watched it successfully cycle and fail to cycle.
Warning!!! (DO NOT TRY DIS-ASSEMBLY IT UNLESS YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND RECOGNIZE THE COMPONENTS, You could electrocute yourself and suffer nasty permanent scaring... ouchie!)
I discovered the same as another person claimed a "check value" and/or air leak/lockup. The pump cycles, but can't get water so the machine shuts down to prevent over-heating. (The dreaded "Not Ready").
1. Turn off the machine and unplug until it is completely cooled, say 4 hours. (Allows for temperature equalization of the water chamber and the water supply)
2. Completely fill the water reservoir. (The extra water just helps the pump break the air lock).
3. Turn the machine on and wait for the pump to start drawing water.
4. Immediately knock 1-3 times on top of the water reservoir/machine (at the very top of the machine) about as hard as would knocking on a door. (Watch the water level, it should immediately start to drop)
The pitch of the pump should change when the water begins to be drawn into the heating chamber. (you can also hear the water flowing)
The problem is caused by air entering the water supply system. This air provides a "lock" on the system that the pump can't overcome. This can happen due to a number of issues but most issues should be this easy fix.
The machine refills itself 3 times. At Power-on, at beginning of the brew cycle and after the brew cycle.
Watch the machine and any time the pump cycles make sure it draws in water until it shuts down, if it doesn
