Either your grind is to fine or your brew unit is getting plugged. Try using the pre ground button but don't put any coffee in the machine then push one of the buttons. That will tell you what is wrong.

My machine displays "Need to Prime". I attempt to prime it but the message keeps reappearing. In other words is seems that it is unable to be primed in the usual fashion. Any advise would be...


Ventilate message

That means the pump needs to be primed by running water through the wand. Push the water button and open the knob on the right. You will hear the pump change tone when it primes and the light or message will disappear. If you have a restriction in the intake line the message will not go away. There is a flow meter inside the machine that measures water flow. If the flow meter does not spin when the pump is running, the computer thinks that the pump is not primed. Coffee grounds can get into the intake and restrict the flow meter. If you get a restriction in the water intake (below the water tank, on the machine) the pump may run and water comes out, but the flow meter does not create the jet of water to spin the turbine wheel to send impulses to the computer. You get the ventilate message. One thing to remember is when you are working on the water system (have the water tank off) do not fill the bean hopper and visa versa. Keep them covered when working on the other. Cross contamination will damage a machine fast
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.

Keep getting ventilate message - won't ventilate and cannot operate steam or grinder w/ ventilate message


Try this run the hot water cycle for a few seconds, it that works, try steaming if you get the message again clear it by running the hot water cycle and then go to steaming, this time push in on the knob after you open it, it that works, then the tap rod or the valve assembly needs to be replaced.

What does ventilate mean?


Hi,

"Ventilate" simply means that there is an air pocket caught in the system and running water through it can fix the problem. When the ventilate message appears, you will need to run hot water through your steam/hot water wand as if you were going to fill your cup with hot water. If the message does not go away after doing so, you will have to run hot water through your wand continuously into an empty container (emptying one full water reservoir if not more). Once your display screen reads "Select Product, ready for use," you will be ready to brew delicious coffee again.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Coffee is not coming out, machine is telling me to ventilate


Hi
Ventilate is a message that the machine needs to be primed. Open the knob on the right with the water button pushed. Make sure that the machine is not in the steam mode. The pulsing should be very fast not slow. If you do not have a blockage the message should clear in about 5 seconds. If is doesn't clear in 5 seconds you might have a blockage in your water tank intake. That is under the water tank on the machine. It can also be in your flow meter. Remember when you are working on filling your beans or water keep the other one covered to prevent cross contamination.
