I have had this same problem - it is due to an airlock in the boiler/tubes. Simple solution is to use a syringe or similar and gently force some water up the intake hose from the tank, then try the pump again.

Hi The first thing that I would check is the tip of the steam wand for a plug. If that is clear then I would suspect a clogged flow meter. If you can get the flow meter out it twists apart and don't loose the parts and the dot on the turbine goes up. Clean out the small opening on the bottom pipes where the hoses attach. Look inside and make sure that they are clear before reassembling.

Easiest way to get to it, remove the 2 screws in the bean hopper, and remove the hopper, there are a few screws under the water tank, this should give you access to the machine top. Check the end of the steam wand it might be blocked use a paper clip to clear it out. Run it under the faucet to make suree it is clear. Check the microswitch that is connected to the steam valve, It can be seen when you turn the knob to open the steam/hot water valve, make sure it is not stuck in the on position.

That's leaking from the hoses coming out from the boiler,if the machine is new it should be still under warranty, may have to take it back to the service center.When making coffee the lines are under pressure and the water never have a chance to pass through the ground coffee.

Some times The steam knob may be slightly open. Twist the steam wand knob towards you, firmly, to a fully closed position.Check Pressure releif valve, the fill water inlet is on.Block in solenoid valve.
if still persist the pressure gauge should be replaced.I had a case where the Espresso had pressure built in and it may blow out.So please call the service man for your safety.
Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)
