I have a fairly new Breville Cast Iron Espresso Machine and it has been working just great! BUT now it won't pump any water thru the system at all - won't pump for frothing and won't pump to make espresso. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
When I try the troubleshooting suggestions, nothing works and the water just pours out of the bottom of my machine!

I have the same problem. I used my machine for one day to test it when I had it brought into Vietnam then packed it while our house was being built.
Now it won't pump water or produce steam.
To add insult to injury Breville advice "They don't give service manuals to the public"
The scale and dirt inside vibrating pump have dry out and keep the pump stuck. If your hands are capable you desasemble the pumb clean all the parts with a metal brush and put them back together 90% the pump will work perfect again. Their are 10% that the coil of the pump to be burn out then you will need a new pump
I had the same problem. I opened up the back and disconnected the water hose from the spring loaded intake hose and put the hose directly into the tube and into the reservoir tank. Now it seems to **** the water in again. Not sure this is the best solution but it seems to work for now.
If someone has a better solution, I'd be happy to hear about it.
Personnaly, when I use the big filter, the grinds are dry after the extraction, but for the small filter, it's all soggy. If you look at the documentation, ( http://kitchen.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/breville/breville_coffeemaker_product_list.html) they say wet coffee grind after extraction is normal. But did you change the coffee brand ? Or the grinding level ? How do you grind your coffee ? I had big troubbles once with a commercial grinder at my grocery store, it's when I decided to buy my own Breville grinder.
is your machine new or is this a new problem? If you have had the machine for a while there is a possibility that your double wall filter is clog between the walls which would prevent the water from going through (this happens when your grind is too fine). If however the water does not go through when you do not have a filter in the basket than you have a diferent problem.
I had a similar problem, but no blinking light, only cold coffee. I tapped on the relay (black box on circuit board) and violá. Red light, hot coffee, and happiness. The machine did the same thing a couple of weeks after the "fix", and a good slap to the left side, and I was back in business. My guess is that your switch is bad or sticking. Good luck.
