It may be a stupid suggestion but have you checked the strainer in the reservoir? It Could be blocked. And if you haven't removed the brew head sieve recently? It could be gunked up.
For cleaning it's best t use citric acid packets sold in stores as it hurts the metals inside the tank the least, but in a pinch you can use vinegar, although it's much more corrosive and could hurt the machine.
When using a cleaner remove the brew head sieve, as a lot of junk will collect and can block the sieve, with resulting no flow for brewing.
Hope this helps!

This fault is normally down to one of two things.
1) Motor Controller PCB Part No. 5232104400
2) Main Pump Part No. 5132107000
The first thing you can check is the Motor Controller PCB but from memory I can't remember where it's located.
If you remove the rear of the unit you will see the motor that raises and lowers the brewer unit. If you trace the cables from this then thats the PCB you're looking for. Check for any obvious signs of damage or scorching/arking.
If this looks OK then the fault is with the Main Pump.
I'm having difficulty finding anyone that currently sell these part but I'll keep looking. I'm finishng in 30 minutes for 8 hours so if I can ask that you wait till after this time to post a response on your findings.

Posting my comments again as I'm not sure they are getting through...
I had the same Generic Alarm problem and it turned out to be the thermal fuse associated with the frothing (i.e. the "U"-shaped) boiler. The part is available on-line here: http://www.ereplacementparts.com/tco-p-695163.html
As a proof that this is indeed the failure in my machine, I bypassed the fuse and confirmed that the machine works if the fuse were there. I've also confirmed that the old fuse is blown (i.e. open-circuit). I can't recommend my temporary fix (a nail as a fuse replacement) but I have enjoyed the coffee while I wait to put in the new fuse :)
If I can, I'll take pictures as I put in the new fuse and post them here.
