I just got mine to work by forcing water into the pump to force it to prime. I took a syringe for a meat injector and built a gasket so it would seal over the water intake. Then I forced several syringes of water into the pump till it finally picked up and caught its prime.

So folks to solve this problem I used the last resort....don't laugh, but I actually started to hit the machine very hard on the top and from the side and all of sudden it started to work. When in doubt hit it!

According to their tech support...
Remove the water tank and re-seat. Unplug for 30 seconds and replug.
Fixed mine this way with the same issue.

Even though the light is on, this does not mean the element that heats the water is working. After you fill the machine with COLD water, and the light has been on for a few minutes, unplug the machine and dump the water out into a bowl. Carefully, feel the water. Is it hot? OR just warm? Or still cold? If it is warm, the element is not heating properly. If it is cold, the element is NOT working. If the water is HOT, then perhaps the tube from the water storage reservoir to the brewing basket is clogged. If that tube is clogged, it needs to be removed from the machine and cleaned out. If the element is not working, or heating the eater hot enough, that element needs replacement. Chances are, the replacement cost/cost of repair would be more then a new coffee maker.

In some cases, you can also get the electronics to reset by leaving it unplugged for at least 15 minutes. This may resolve whatever is locking up the machine.
Another possibility is that it may need to be decalcified, especially if you haven't done so recently. Try looking up your model number on the web or on the manufacturer website. Download the owner's manual, if need be, and view their cleaning and troubleshooting sections. If that doesn't work, contact the manufacturer during normal business hours. The unit may require service.
