The Home Cafe machine will not pump water

I looked inside the reservoir and it was clear and the hole that leads intot he machine is clear, but the water will not pump into the heater, I suppose.
Whatever it is called it is not making coffee at all, it shuts downs. The blue lights start flashing and it just turns itself off.

It's dirty or has scale / deposits. Use a paper towel to draw out as much water as you can from the "hole that leads into the machine" - then fill it with clear, distilled vinegar and let that sit for about 15 minutes. Fill the resevoir with a vinegar / water mixture. After the 15 minutes, run the vinegar solution through until the resevoir is empty.

After you do that, you will have to run several tanks of water through, to get the taste / smell of vinegar out, but the machine will work fine again.

What do we do after replacing the pump on an LG frontload washing machin, yet still get error message OE?


Assuming you cleaned the pump strainer?

Likely the drain hose leading from the pump to the drain, the section

inside the cabinet that "u-turns" back down is plugged up with

junk.. I had to remove the hose from the machine and force water

thru it at a outside faucet to clear what looked like a turd from the

inside of the drain hose..My shop vac could not dislodge it..

Group head not running


Perform a full descale. Take out the water reservoir and remove the Anti-calc filter. Put in 500ml (1 pint) water with 3-4 tablespoons of white vinegar (or apple cider vinegar). Put the water canister back in, the turn on the machine and press the manual button. Allow half of the liquid to go through, then stop. Leave the machine for about ten minutes, and then run the rest through. Empty the water reservoir and rinse, put back the Anti-Calc filter, put in another 500ml and press the manual button to flush it all through.

My Keurig coffee maker will not pump water into the chamber, I have tried the fixit suggestions but to no aavail. Machine was used less than 6 months.


Take the K-cup insert out.
Insert a small paperclip and carefully insert upward into exit needle, swirl to dislodge debris (clog could be preventing H2O uptake).
Do this for all three of the holes in the exit needle.
Add distilled white vinegar to reservoir.
Run "Brew" without a KCup to see if this clears the reservoir uptake and exit needle.
Fill reservoir with water and run to clear vinegar from system.

Low water indicator flashing


The magnet inside the float loses its magnetism with age.

Buy a replacement on eBay for a few bucks.

You cannot repair it, but the machine will continue to work fine without it - you just won't get a signal when your water is about to run out.

Leaking coolant and antifreeze


Have you checked the water pump? It has what is referred to as weep holes (2). Just before failure in a water pump, it will leak antifreeze out one or both holes, usually the bottom hole. Also, check passenger floor for dampness, which would mean heater core or heater core hoses are leaking

HOW TO WORK A ZANUSSI ZWN7120L WASHING MACHINE


Error E20 means the machine has failed to pump out. 1st check the filter at the bottom right hand side there may still be water inside if so pull the grey tab to the left of the filter there should be a thin hose extend it put it into a shallow dish and pull the cap off to let the water drain this may be a slow process. When the filters out look into the hole with a torch to see if any obstructions in the pump impeller this looks like a cross. If the filters and pump are clear it may be the pump has failed.

Saeco sg200 vending machine LED says no water .I changed the flow meter but no luck what do i ttry next


Unlike older-generation Saeco machines, the SG200 has an LCD display without LEDs. If you really have an SG200 with a "no water" alarm, try cycling the power and listen for water pump noise upon start-up. If no pump noise, check if reservoir is full, to determine which of the two water pumps is failing (the one in the base cabinet or the one that moves water from the reservoir to the boiler)- GT
