When you ran the cleaning cycle did you use the Krups cleaning tabs?

SOURCE: My Gaggia Baby C coffee maker has stopped pumping water

From what you have asked the only thing I can suggest is that the pump needs to be replaced. Do you hear the pump vibrating? The lines from the pump may be blocked. Have you tried to descale the machine.

SOURCE: Jura S9 coffee machine not drawing water - says FILL SYSTEM

I think the magnetic valve is defective. This is located on the left side (seen from behind inside the machine) and there`s connections between the thermoblock and the hot water outlet. Try to press the steambutton and check if the magnetic valve clicks, and maybe check with a voltmeter if it`s receiving power.

PS. During steamprocessing the pump just have small ticking sound, and not the same sound as during brewing. There is no way around this Fill system message, and the reset function is not activated until any System Messages has been clared.

I have a sunbeam EM 6910 I have just replaced the seal. When I power it on it goes through the warm up then the power light stays red and the machine starts pumping straight away.


I had this same problem. Turns out that tons of crawling insects had been living in my machine and caused an electrical fault. On my machine, this issue stops when the machine senses the water is empty, so you can try just removing the water level magnet from the tank. If you do, you still get the low water beeping and flashing red light. I sorted that by disconnecting the beeper and light from the main board but I had to open the machine right up for this, so that will take much more effort. Didn't really FIX the problem, but did circumvent without much loss of function (except the low water warning). See if that works.

Why no steam.Sunbeam 6910 cafe series. Turned on steam wand this morning and all I heard was a sigh, a feint try to deliver steam but not successful. Very little pump noise / action almost non-existent....


Hi,

This could be 1 of many issues, usually the Steam pump (black or blue) is corroded and no longer vibrating correctly, the pump could be blocked, the pipe work after pump but before boiler could be blocked, the steam boiler could be blocked, the pipe work after steam boiler but before the steam tap could be blocked, the steam tap could be blocked, and also the milk nozzle could be blocked, if you feel competent to take it apart, it is easy to fix but if not take the machine to local service agent.

When turning on my sunbeam espresso machine, the 6910, it has a strong burning type smell. Any ideas


First stop using it. Unplug and remove the cover and see if there are any burned marks on the wiring. Is the smell of wiring or rubber ?

We have a sunbeam cafe series coffee machine that is 2 years old but suddenly under extracts on the pour and cannot reach the extraction pressure we are used to. We grind our own beans as well.


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 the 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.

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.

Steam wand doesn't work on sunbeam cafe series coffee machine


Have you tried cleaning the steam wand nozzle with a paperclip (or the pin tool mounted in the back door of the unit?

Milk deposits can make their way inside the nozzle and block it, describing the symptoms you're getting.

Iam looking for a less expensive grinder to use with my Rancilio Silva. Is there one?


My local coffee specialist suggested a sunbeam conical cafe series grinder. He sells a lot of the Rancilio Sylvia machines and recommends the sunbeam to go with them. Retails at $219. Just bought one and very pleased with it.
