Expobar espresso machine not siphoning water

We have and expobar machine that I attempted to run through the cleaning cycle (detergent in the non-fenstrated cup for the handle.) Initially it blew the breaker, but now I can't get it to brew or run the cleaning cycle. Just before all of this I changed the water in the resevoir (it had been sitting.) It looks like there is air in the lines. Is this normal? Is this a problem, or is there somthing else going on? Thank you for your time.

    Thanks. I will. It runs now (i.e makes the requisite noises for 10 minutes) but does not seem to want to actually brew the espresso. Specifically, no water comes out, and I am worried to let it run due to the potential for wrecking the pump mechanism.

Where is it leaking steam from? If it is from the porta-filter, you need to replace the group head gasket, which is done with something like a screwdriver to get it out.

We have an Expobar Office Control (Pulser) and while the machine pumps water it is not heating it and the red LED stays on. Any advice?

If its pumping water its not the thermal fuse. Its probably the heating element. If it starts to build pressure but stops, its your vacuum breaker. It could also be your CPU is bad. Need a little more information to get a better handle on it.

Can't get expobar office lever to start pumping water into boiler

You are right, there is no flange.Under the tank reservoir there is a switch (micro) if you lift the reservoir up you should hear the switch click on and off,.Sometimes the switch will hang up and stop the pump from coming on.Try that and let me know.
