If you tried to clean it (descale) and did proper and still does not work, this is most likely a pump vapor lock kind of issue. This can be cause from a small blockage to cause the vapor lock for the pump to work to pump the water, or just a vapor lock to get that water to pump; MOST THE TIME IT IS A PRIMING ISSUE. kind of like bleeding the breaks on a car. Read below and follow steps.
You can hold your finger over the white tube in the top of the reservoir to place more pressure on the water to flow through the needle and expel the debris from the tubing.
Take a can of compressed air like you would use to clean your computer and blow air through the tube(s) in
the reservoir and also the needle(s) to clear dirt debris and water
from the machine. This process may make a mess so be sure to have the
machine is a place where the mess can be cleaned up easily. Some have
even used a large tire type air compressor out of desperation, and
report that it does work. I would use great care with this method and
shoot the air in very short bursts.
Often the pump gets air in itand does not prime correctly.
It will then only pump a little water. To fix this you may need to get
rough with the machine. Slamming the reservoir onto the machine will
sometimes work, The shake rattle and roll method also will have the
desired affect sometimes. Some have turn the machine upside down over
the sink, have slapped the sides of the machine, or even shake the
machine to get the air out of the lines. Once you do get the pump to
prime properly, you can keep the pump from getting more air by making
sure to fill the reservoir before it gets empty by using a pitcher to
fill the tank instead of removing it and filling it.
With some Krups, the bottom needle does not pierce the bottom of the cup
if you simply place the Krups into the holder and then close the top.
Extra effort may be needed to make sure that the K-cup gets seated
properly so that the water can flow through the Krups easily. If you
have water still in the K-cup when you remove it after brewing, you are
having this problem.Bottom Line I believe most your problem is going to making sure tubes are clean and priming it, even have have to get a little rough and shake machine to get the pump working as air lock gets out. Let me know if this worked for you. Takes some patience, but should get to working with some time Thank you, Mike from fixya
Is there a place to prime the pump? Self priming doesn't necessarily mean it doesn't need help. If there is no place tp put water in the pump, consider disconnecting the suction hose and fill ith with water, hold the hose up toward the motor to get the most water in you can, then reattach it to the pool and try again.
as with any pool pump they have to prime themselves,, close up the unit as it was before,, and turn it on,, remember that water is also the cooling agent for these pumps, check to see that its pumping water as before,, ( yours may even have a place to prime it,, Look for an easy access prime hole in the pump unit itself )
This could very well be low water, it should be half way up the tile or the skimmer throught. Also check your skimmer weir door. If it get's stuck in the up position it will do the same thing. To be sure start the pump then watch the water in the skimmer. If it sucks dry then it is one of these things.
I would suggest putting a condensate pump in the reservoir, find the tube that empties the water into the reservoir and direct that into the pump. You can run tubing from the pump to a sink or any other drain in the house that is convenient. Putting the pump inside the reservoir is a safe guard in case the pump fails, the water will fill and turn the unit off instead of flooding the floor. It would actually probably trip your breaker once the water hit the voltage on the pump but always better safe then sorry. Check out these pumps at amazon, you don't need anything fancy.
On the water reservoir there is a little black disk, a magnet, I think...If that is not against the machine it will display the prime error.Empty the water from the reservoir and tilt it so that the disk is against the machine.Place the reservoir empty back on the machine and fill it with water carefully as not to move the disk.When the water level gets to the correct position, the prime error will go away.
first vinegar is not strong enought proper descaler for expresso machine and in our water container the hole in the bottom put water in the tank with a hoseor turkey juicer our anything you got push water in hole you need to pressurize to forse the pummp to trim itself hope it help fixya pierre
it just means that the pump needs primed. Turn on at the wall and on the machine, wait until screen says ready (make sure water tank full), then turn steam handle on RHS to on (do not push the steam button). the pump will prime until water comes out of the steam nozzle. now turn off the steam handle and you are ready to go!
