Question about Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
When i press the coffee button the machine grinds beans etc then just squirts hot water out the steam spout??
1- Is the coffee grounds wet or dry?
2- Does the spout drip water when the machine is just heating up?
If the grounds are dry then the brew chamber is not getting any water. Turn machine off, let it cool down, then remove brew unit. Behind the brew unit there is a white valve with 2 red o-rings(sometimes black), if you look closely there is a small lever between the o-rings, get a small screwdriver and gently lift lever and spring, if water came out then the problem is in the brew unit, unscrew the stainless steel screen which is under the large red O-ring on the brew unit and clean, also make sure the tube on the unit is clear.
If the hot water spout is not dripping when the machine is heating up then you're good.

Tips for a great answer:
The problem is a very frequent one a small scale part have been moved and it stack to the water steam valve and it blocking it from closing completely. So when you make coffee the hose of water for coffee is in parallel with hot water steam wand and since the valve remains partially opened the water for coffee find easy escape from steam wand.
So we suggest to perform one more descale and it may need twice hopefully this small scale part to be dissolve a little bit more in order to pass thought the steam valve and thus the valve can close again completely. If you are not so lucky the part remain on the valve then only solution is to disassemble the machine thus clean the steam valve manually. In this solution you may find out that the valve o ring might be damage and thus the leak.
here is the link with steam valve parts and this the parts diagram of the machine and here many more for your machine

A grind that is too fine will result in your espresso being too
bitter. Rinse between shots because the infuser clogs easily with black
espresso muck. Not rinsing will cause the machine to shut down with a message
that the "grind is too fine".
Try removing the beans from the hopper and use a vacuum to CLEAR/REMOVE any grounds and then adjust the grinder 4 clicks clockwise. Try turning the grinding regulator 1 click clockwise and see if that works.If not try inserting the water spout press the ok button and then run water a few seconds.
If you remove the water tank too early while it is making coffee it will display that message as well.
Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

- Make sure that the filled water container is in the appliance.
- Turn the program selector to "On" with lighting and place a container under the hot water spout and another
under the steam spout.
- Press the hot water button, turn the steam selector counterclockwise and dispense hot water until it flows in
quiet, continuous streams.
- Press the hot water button again.
Turn the steam selector clockwise to o, to turn off the water.
If this doesn't do it for you, you are doing it wrong!
