The holes in the metal coffee ground holder/filter are probably clogged. I have had this happen and it has cleared when I cleaned the holes in the coffee holder. I used the cut off head of a toothbrush and pushed the bristles through the holes. If you hold the filter to the light before and after cleaning, you can see the change in the proportion of closed holes.

My Dolce Gusto coffee maker suddenly stopped working power will not turn on


Most coffee makers have a thermal fuse which prevents the appliance from meltdown or fire in case of an electrical short.
Thermal fuses are made for various temperature limits. Open your appliance find the fuse which looks like a resistor or diode with a metal shell. Note the part no. or temperature. Look online and purchase a replacement fuse. They are inexpensive. The fuse needs to be soldered or crimped on connectors in place of the blown fuse. The fuse can be checked with a multimeter for continuity using the ohms setting.

My Rancilio Silvia won't pump water out of the head all of a sudden. It had worked for years up to this point


It may be that the 'shower screen' which is a perforated metal disk filter that fits inside the head has reached its use by date.
These can be found and bought on E-bay for about $15 each, make sure you buy a genuine Rancilio replacement, while you are at it, replace the rubber 'group seal' - a rubber ring for pressure sealing the head/arm after filling the arm with grounds - these are a similar price. If you get leaks around the head while making a coffee, the seal is worn out.

I have a Briel MultiPro espresso maker. When I try to make coffee, water/coffee starts running over the edge of the basket and it "spurts" coffee and grounds after a few seconds.


The group head gasket needs to be cleaned or replaced. First get a brush and clean put the head, then insert back wash filter(basket with no holes) in portafilter, make sure that it is seated properly(atleast 90° angle with machine), then run the head if nothing leaks around the portafilter the gasket is fine, if it leaks then replace the gasket. Make sure that you press the stop button before removing the back wash filter.

Cuisinart grind and brew--water does not come down


If the water is not coming out of the filter basket, and is instead leaking over the edges, then replace the brew basket.

If there is no water at all, call Cuisinart - those coffee makers have a 3-year warranty.

No flow


Tamp the coffee a little less - run water through filter basket to make sure it is dripping out before filling with espresso grounds. Dry the filter thoroughly before inserting coffee grounds. I would reccomend using double filter basket only instead of the single.
