Hi,

Sorry for the delay, i´m on sick-list and have limited access to computer.

To prime the machine you have to put a container under the steam pipe, open the steamknob on the top of the machine. Let the pump go to there is a steady flow of water then you can close the steam knob again.

I´m not sure if you done this already.
Let me know if i can help you more.

Best regards

SOURCE: Why am I getting a

HI
The problem you have is, there is a restriction in the intake of your flow meter. It usually is a piece of coffee that fell into you water receptacle when you had the water tank off. Then you filled the bean hopper and the chip of coffee fell in the receptacle, and then you replaced your water tank and that let the chip flow to your flow meter and now you have a slight flow of water and you always get the ventilate message.
You need to remove the flow meter (in the back bottom of the machine, attached to the tube that goes to the receptacle) and clean the intake side, and then remember "When you are working on either the beans or water, make sure that the other one is covered".

SOURCE: Cannot Prime Starbucks Sirena

In regards of the no prime issue. this is the only way i could prime this new puppy.make sure its stone cold which is a no brainer since it will not heat h2o unless its primed. first take off steamer plastic tip ,turn on steamer clock wise till pump starts. then **** the tip of the end of the metal tip hard until pump stops may need to do it a couple of times. yes this seems out of this world but it works. you are flushing out the vapor lock in the pump. bravo enjoy!

SOURCE: pump does not prime, sometimes does not move water

I had a similar problem and I found the symptoms misleading! I used a pin to clean the upper needle and I found that after I did that the pump worked again. Not 100% sure it will work everytime, but cheap and worth a try!

Blue flashing light and says prime


The PRIME is important. If you looses the prime, you cannot lift the water up and into the reservoir for heating and eventually flowing to the Kcup and beyond. Full the Water container all of the way to the line (not over), prime as per the manual, with the handle fully engaged, see if that fixes the problem.

Is amsf-6 a self priming pump??


most all pumps need to be primed the first time before use, and every time after a repair !! you fill up the tank with water (about 3 gallons?)first this gives the pump suction it needs to start pumping IF YOU don't prime it it will burn up the shaft seal (in just a few minutes) and it will be slow to start pumping or leak OR not pump at all. if you ran it dry you will need to replace the shaft seal, you can split the pump at the seal plate leave the plumbing portion hooked up and bring the motor att. to the seal plate to your local pool pump motor repair guy and have him replace the shaft seal ..BEST CHOICE $20 and ask him how 2 take better care of it (priceless )..hope this helps ... jay the pump repair guy in longwood fl

Noy working


Well, ok, I found that I just needed more water to prime it.  Apparently, a self-prime pump needs to be primed pretty well to use the first time.

anytime the water runs out and you need to refill the tank, you need to bleed the line so to speak. Take an empty cup and put it under the wand and open the knob of the steam wand until the blue light stops flashing
