Question about Sunbeam Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines

Open Question

Why doesn't the group handle of my new sunbeam EM7000 coffee machine attach properly and the water level warning light comes on eve though there is 1 litre of water still in tank?

Thought I was "updating" from the EM6101 but maybe this wasn't such a good idea

SOURCE: No water is being pumped at all

I got through to the tech support at Breville and they helped me fix this problem. What they had me do was:

1)Fill the water tank all the way up

2)Turn the power on and wait until the heating light turns off.

3)without coffee in the head turn the machine to espresso mode and let it pump for a minute.

4)after a minute turn to standby for a couple seconds then turn it to steam mode for a minute.

5) after this minute is up turn it back to standby for a couple of seconds and then back to espresso mode.

6) the technician said to do this seven times, but mine started working after three or so. The tech said the fixes about 80 to 90 percent of machines with this problem.

Good Luck!

Hi, It the group solenoid behind the leaking group. Try giving it a good back flush or remove the solenoid, pull it apart and try cleaning it. If you have a Boema machine, just replace the solenoid. Dazza

Pressure valve


Generally, this is not a problem with the machine but with how you're loading the coffee! Sounds typical of one of these problems:-

Not enough coffee in the basket
Coffee should be filled and tamped to about 3mm below the rim.
Coffee grind not fine enough (too coarse)
Do you grind your own coffee or buy ready-ground? If buying ready-ground, make sure it is for espresso (fine) and not for filter or plunger.
If you have your own grinder, (like the Sunbeam Conical Grinder), then make sure the coffee hopper on top is securely connected to the grinder. I'd been using mine for years on the the finest grind (1) not realising the hopper wan't on right. Only discovered it when I took it apart to clean. Now my grinder is on 9-10 to grind for espresso.
Coffee not tampered down hard enough
You do need to provide a reasonable degree of pressure to tamp he coffee down just right.
Group head not turned tight enough
Push the group handle as far to the right as it will go, then ease it back just a fraction to have the right pressure.

Low water warning light flashing when water level is not low


The water level sensor is based on a floating magnet. The magnet breaks out of it's holder in the water tank. Remove the water tank via the door on the back of the machine, tip the water out (and the magnet will probably come out too). Put the magnet back in the housing down near the water valve, and wedge the black lid on with a bit of plastic. Refill and enjoy coffee.

... or put some black tape over the red light.

Ours does not finish cycle either!!! The machine runs through the cycle up until the point where water should enter the "brew group". The coffee doesn't come out. What shall we try?


I just fix that problem by opening the water flow meter by some coffee grinds, also had a little coffe grind jamming a check valve that is at last of the water pump flow, now is running pretty well

Sunbeam cafe series EM 6910 coffee machine little red light keeps flashing


That's the low water warning, triggered by a black float with a magnet inside, in the water container.

The magnet inside the float in the water tank 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.

Hi i have bodum grandos espresso, i need a new group head and water tank where can i find in Sydney?


Hi I have the same machine that has been taken apart and so it's now a pile of spare parts. When you say new group head, do you mean the collar of the group head, or do you need a new group handle and basket ? I live in Sydney if you want to get in touch.

My titanium is no longer extracting properly, getting weak bitter coffee water instead. The upper filter in the brewing group is now loose, instead of screwing in you can now pull it out with the plastic...


There shouldn't be a way for that metal filter disc at the top of the brew chamber to come out without unscrewing the plastic thumbscrew on top. If you are saying the disc will slide out, or fall out, while that plastic thumbscrew is still tightened onto the threaded, metal shaft on the disc - then your brew group must be broken or you aren't putting it together correctly. That disc should push up into place with the threaded shaft poking up though the small hole - then the plastic thumbscrew should twist onto the threaded shaft and tighten down to pull the disc tightly up in place. If that doesn't happen, then the filter won't be held in place tightly so the water can leak around the filter and of course the coffee would be watery and weak.

Have a Gaggia Cyncrony Compact Coffe Machine that doesn't brew!


Has the machine been de-scaled recently? I would run a descaling solution through the machine first to eliminate that.
