    Pump could be plugged, although I have descaled w/vinegar 3 times. Are you suggesting I take the machine apart and clean the pump?

With the resevoir in place lifted it up about 2cm and 'dropped' it about 8 times. Each time, air bubbles came up from the bottom. After doing this, the next time that I went through heating, ready to brew, brew process, it worked fine.

    Check to see if hose in reservoir is disconnected, if so reconnect. Reservoir may be damaged.

    this is a fixed amount of coffee that can be used to make your cup of coffee regardless of size adjustale cup size and different strenghts.

    You have a timer you can pre-set in the morning so the
    water is already heated when you get up and the machine can also be
    shutdown automatically when you go to sleep or whenever you choose.
    Also, the machine is very easy to clean

Take the machine a part, see if there is any wires broken or any parts on the system board that have broken. Something most likely shorted out and it is garbage.

Hi!

Cleaning the My K-Cup® accessory
Regular cleaning of the My K-Cup® accessory is
recommended.
1. Remove the assembled My K-Cup® Holder from
the Brewer by raising the Safety Locking Arm. Use
22 caution as the My K-Cup® Holder will be hot.
2. Disassemble the My K-Cup® Holder by removing
the Lid from the Holder in a counter-clockwise
direction. Remove the Filter Basket from the
Holder, discard the grounds.
3. Wash the Lid, Filter Basket and Holder in warm
soapy water with a soft cloth, then rinse and dry
thoroughly. All parts K-Cup® Holder are also topshelf
dishwasher safe.
4. Store the assembled My K-Cup® Holder in the
My K-Cup® Storage compartment located on top
of the Brewer.

    You Brewer is equipped with sensors to detect when scale buildup is interfering with the performance of the Brewer. When this is detected, the LCD screen

    will indicate ’DESCALE’.

    I think you haven't descaled it properly and it needs to be cleaned or if you have descaled it properly then your sensors are gone bad and are thus causing this trouble. Change the sensors or check for their connections.



    Thanks

That being said, people who are thinking of buying this unit have to know that the same filters that produce the great crema they love will get clogged after 2 or three uses, and cleaning them will require a lot of work (unclogging the tiny holes with a pin, soaking the filters overnight in vinegar and/or running a lot of pressurizedboiling water through the empty filter), wasting a lot of unused coffee, and worst of all...wasting a lot of time to do all this (which hardly anyone has these days). I guess this problem would be solved if the pump was strong enough to push through the clogged filter, but that is not the case. When the pressurized water builds up, instead of going through the filter and coffee, it will go backwards and down to the reservoir in the bottom of the machine (picture trying fo inflate a balloon with a hole in it.) wasting tons of water in the process. Also, do not think that you can clean the filter after each use.....you cannot, because as I said earlier, the filter has two walls, the first one with a lot of tiny holes and the second one with a very small one. Whatever gets trapped within the two walls will likely stay, clogging the tiny holes and rendering the machine useless. Nothing will come out of the machine even with an empty filter

Check your water source. Is it direct feed? slow water usually show some kind of blockage in the lines somewhere.

Our 7 year old Saeco Magic Delux has started to leak water when we fill the tank. It runs out of the bottom of the tank and down the side. Happens about 20% of the time. Is it worth having a 7 year old one...


If I understand well the problem is only with tanks valve which means the spring have become more soft and stays a litle open so you have water leak. It maybe because some scale or dirt keep it open some time.
In order to decide if it wise to fix it or not the answer is simple if you have a good coffee result in cup which means that the grinder grinds good, presure pump work good and boiler heat up ok then you will only need to complete descale the machine and replace only small cheap parts and you will have a very good machine again for some more years. Remember a brand new machine will do the same espresso like yours.

Water doesn't enter ice maker tray


You probaby just have an air lock somewhere. Trace the tube to where it taps into the water pipe. Remove the hose and blow thru it.

I have a 3 yr. old toro, It wont stay running.


You probably have a crack or hole in the primer bulb. Replace it and see if that solves your problem.

I have a coffee pot per say it has the resivor and dispences one cup at a time. only 1 yr old but it doesnt seam to be geting any electricy so it dont work


Most likely a thermal resistor in the heater cicuit has blown, if you replace it youself make sure you install it in the right direction and do not to solder it in, the wires are crimped so not to damage the resistor with the heat from soldering.

Recipes Are wrong in instruction booklet


I had a similar problem when I switched machines. It seems that most recipes will work in same size machines (1 or 1.5 lb loaf size). My issue was that my old machine had to have liquids in first and then dry ingredients (new machine is the opposite). I ruined several loaves before I figured out the issue. I would have never imagined the order of ingredients would make a big difference.
Good luck!

Water not being forced through the cup


I've seen a few coffeemakers that have a gravity valve on the inlet side of the brew chamber. If this valve has become stuck open, then the hot water may be perking back into the reservoir instead of out to the coffee.
