I've followed the directions for the initial flushing of the Senseo. When you hit the power on button then the buttons on each side to start the flush, the pump comes on and continues to run but no water is pulled from the reservoir. After five minutes I finally turned it off and the reservoir was still full.
Sounds like resevoir was not seated properly or something is in the resevoir. try pushing the pin on the bottom of the resevoir, do it over the sink, and see if water comes out. if tht works then its internal to the machine.
Call senseo at 866-4-736-736 866-4-Senseo and describe the problem.if you have purchased or received it as a gift less than two years ago they will send a new one FREE.

No need to see what is in the manual.
But what I type here, you also have to read.
The manual gives pictures. I'm not.
Remove the transparent back of the machine and fill it with water. a few centimetres under the top, you fine the line for max fill.
Then replace the transparent back on the machine. Then plug in the power cord and press the power on button. (once is enough) a light comes on and flashes, when the mains plug has power.
Then wait till the light stops flashing. In the mean time put a coffee pad in the top and close the top all as described in the manual.
Place one or two cups under the nozzles and press the button with the one or two cups. (two cups gives twice as much water, so place two cups.
It is quite common. If your machine is less than 2 years, contact Philips and they will give you a new one. Else, It takes a bit of patience to disassemble the machine. (The version that I have HD-7810) you have to: ) 1. remove the water tank;remove the back part that is touching the water 2. remove the back cover beneath the water tank; 3 spot 2 screws at the sides of the vertical plastic, one on each side(better to use a light or led to really see it); 4. Remove the screws with a Philips driver; 5. Use a small sharp tool to pop open the under cover of the machine - star by one of the sides, go through the part where the buttons are and continue untill all of it is off; 6. You will see a yellow rectagular capacitor. Desolder and solder a new one. 7. Close the machine as nothing happened and enjoy the coffee!
Hi Have you tried to clean and de-scale it, limescale can really play havoc with these sort of devices. If you still have the instruction book give it a read and follow instructions for de-scaleing. Also there is a cleaning cycle on some of the models which just flushes the senseo through to clear it out again it is in the book but if I remember rightly you fill up the resoviour then turn it on and put a large bowl under the spout and press both the one and two cup buttons at once. But I would do a descale phillips say it should be done about every 3 months this should also clean out any other muck that has built up, they also say to clean out the pod holder including the little hole. The Phillips website has help if you have lost the booklet.
happened to me once this worked for me .
had to fill tank 2 more times to allow the machine to flush the descaling mix (think its part of the cleaning process but the instructions are a little vauge)after this it worked fine
is the red light flashing as though not enough water, if so use a magnet to connect to the valve inside the machine, the valve can be found along the water level where the float is. what is happening is that the float is stuck. by connecting the magnet to the valve and very slowly moving the magnet along the water level, upwards the valve will follow and the water will begin to heat as the light changes to a slow flash, if it doesn't work try again as you have not connected to the magnet
I don't know if you've tried this, but it works like gangbusters for me. I use non-senseo pods with the 2-pod holder, and they're too big for the 1-pod holder but not quite big enough for the 2-pod one.
I would frequently end up with a lousy, weak cup of coffee, and after a little investigation I deduced that water was flowing into the pod holder and AROUND the pod, without going THROUGH the pod directly. The name-brand senseo pods fit perfectly, and always produce a strong cup, even if I don't like their coffee, and it's because there's such a tight seal between where water flows in and where it flows out.
Simple solution: Put your pod in with the flat part facing up, and the bulgy part facing down. Press it down hard into the 2-cup holder. Run a little HOT tap water, and lightly wet the surface of the pod--not so much water that the pod starts floating in the holder, but enough to get it soggy. Then make your cup of coffee. The water will flow through the pod first, and kind of like siphoning gas through a hose, once it's started going through the pod it won't stop. Instant awesome cup.
My husband found in ours that the little float was stuck over the sensor (the little patch) down in the reservoir. The float could not rise with the water, thus, the machine did not know that there was enough water available and it would not stop blinking. He took the dry reservoir out, turned it upside down and shook it! This worked for him, as it unstuck the float. He said that if that doesn't work, the thing is really stuck and you might as well return it.
Yes, it is called descaling. Use a descaling solution, or vinegar and water, and follow the procedure for flushing your machine. After that, re flush it with plain water- nothing worse than vinegary coffee!
Try flushing the machine by filling the water tank with water and then pressing both the one cup and the two cup buttons at the same time (make sure to put a big enough bowl under the spout).
If this doesn't work, give Senseo a call: 1-866-4SENSEO. They should be able to help!
