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.

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.

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

Why is my cafe retro espressione not making espresso? It look like the water is pumping up but not draining into the cup! Thanks


You need to descale it. step 1: run some white vinegar through it. step 2: use a commercial descling product (more effective than vinegar). Step 3: if the water flow is completely blocked by scale you need to un screw the exit filter by tipping the machine upside down. Then, remove the scale that built up under the filter, and clean the filter holes. Reassmeble the device and run a descaler through it.

Is the 'add water' button on the keurig devised to add extra water to the already filled cup? I like extra water, a weaker coffee, is there a way to add extra water to the cup?


Hello, this ad feature is telling that you need to ad some water to your reservoir. If you are not getting a full cup of java then here is some things to look at that would help this problem.

Here is a list of things you can do to try and resolve the problem.

Descale the coffee machine....
White vinegar is recommended, but it seems like lemon juice works just as well or even better. Also there are many different commercially sold products to descale coffee machines. One of these is a product called CLR which seems to do a great job. Some people have even used their denture cleaner to descale the coffee brewer. Dissolve a couple of tablets in water and place in the reservoir... then run the solution through the coffee machine to clean it.

Another common problem is that foil from the K-cup lid will get stuck in the needle that punctures the top of the K-cup. Like wise the bottom needle can also get coffee grounds or other debris stuck inside it. Scale from the descale procedure can also be a problem. To get the needles clean the best thing to use is a paper clip. Do not use a toothpick as that can break off inside and cause greater problems. Bend the paper clip so that approximately 1" is straight. Then insert the paper clip into the needle and wiggle to clear any debris. On some brewers the K-cup holder can also be removed, the bottom will twist off to reveal a nozzle that also has small holes that will plug up. Cleaning these holes may be the ticket to a great cup of coffee again.

Check to see if you have water running back into the reservoir when you are brewing a cup of coffee. If you have water bypassing, then you have a problem, there should be no water returning to the reservoir if the brewer is working properly. To stop this from happening there are a few things that you can do.

. You can hold your finger over the white tube in the top of the reservoir to place more
pressure on the water to flow through the needle and expel the debris from the tubing.

Take a can of compressed air like you would use to clean your computer and blow air through the tube(s) in the reservoir and also the needle(s) to clear dirt debris and water from the machine. This process may make a mess so be sure to have the machine is a place where the mess can be cleaned up easily. Some have even used a large tire type air compressor out of desperation, and report that it does work. I would use great care with this method and shoot the air in very short bursts.

      Often the pump gets air in it and does not prime correctly. It will then only pump a little water. To fix this you may need to get rough with the machine. Slamming the reservoir onto the machine will sometimes work, The shake rattle and roll method also will have the desired affect sometimes. Some have turn the machine upside down over the sink, have slapped the sides of the machine, or even shake the machine to get the air out of the lines.
      Once you do get the pump to prime properly, you can keep the pump from getting more air by making sure to fill the reservoir before it gets empty by using a pitcher to fill the tank instead of removing it and filling it.


With some K-cups, the bottom needle does not pierce the bottom of the cup if you simply place the K-cup into the holder and then close the top. Extra effort may be needed to make sure that the K-cup gets seated properly so that the water can flow through the K-cup easily. If you have water still in the K-cup when you remove it after brewing, you are having this problem.


Thank You, Please rate my free help. Appreciate it.

Today,my keurig started to short cup me, and shortly after that, it will not brew anymore! I noiced while de scaling today( recommended per keurig), that more water is pouring into the water resivor, vs...


The water pump is probably starving for water:1. Remove the clear plastic reservoir and set it aside. 2. Look into the hole that the reservoir sits on. You will see a fine plastic screen that keeps debris from getting to the pump. 3. Clean off the screen. You may have to disassemble the bottom of the machine and remove it to do it right. 4. Put everything back together and the short-cup problem will be history.

HOTPOINT AQUARIUS CONDENSER TUMBLE DRYER CTD40


There are three water reservoirs - one at the bottom behind the condenser, a second at the back bottom of the machine and then a third at the top which is the one you would normally pull out to empty.

There is a hole at the bottom of the filter in the first reservoir (at the back of the condenser) which leads to the second reservoir at the back. If the hole gets clogged up with lint/muck then the reservoir at the back does not fill up.

So to solve this, unplug the machine, take out the condenser (front left bottom of the machine) reach through to the back and mop up the spare water with a towel and check that the hole to the back reservoir - you can feel this it is towards the right side at the back of the machine is clear from muck.

Once you have cleared it, water will flow to the second reservoir and then (once you switch on the machine) up to the main removeable reservoir at the top.

Hopefully this helps. GB

you have something stuck inside the Washing machine pump assembly,you could tip over the machine disconnect the drain holes and look in the pump and clear what ever is jammed inside. <<<Remember to disconnect the power cord first>>
