Check the expansion valve, and replace the pump you will have to install a check valve in the out port side of the pump.

Asotoria model aep12n - do I have to use a water softener?

You can use it without one but it would be best to install a water softener system like an everpure ql3 head with a 7S0 softener. That might run you about $200 installed.

Water pump runs constantly

First we have to figure out where the water is going, because if the pump is running the water has to go somewhere. either the boiler or coming out the groupheads or there is a leak? If the groupheads check the manual switches make sure they are in the off position. If the boiler check the wire on the level probe, the inlet solenoid and sight glass to see the amount of water in the boiler. If there are no leaks then there might be a problem with the mainboard.

All the program buttons on my Astoria SAE2 were flickering at once. I turned the machine off and on again and it was gone but am wondering why it was flashing.

if the machine runs on 220, then it will do that with a power surge, because sometimes, when there is a surge, it drops to 110 power it is enough to do this, if it is wire and on 110 power, could be a programing issue that is triggered from a power surge. Most likely it was a power surge, that is common, especially if it is 220 power, machine will run if only 110, power, but wont operated fully for the proper steam, boiler temps etc, if does not have enough amp, just enough to flicker. Hope this info helps. Thanks Mr Bean Man from fixya

We have an astoria model SAE.2 for some reasen the machine has gone very quiet and appears to be strugling when re charging after each use

It sounds like the water pump is not doing its thing or the machine cannot get water, either blocked filter or water line.

I am getting steam and or air in water line feeding my machine.

Try adding an accumulator in line after the shurflo pump, that will assist the machine.

Astoria SAE 1 trickle of water from hot water faucet

Some models have an economiser valve, which mixes hot water from boiler with cold from inlet line, that could be closed or obstructed. The line from the boiler to the solenoid or the pipe inside the boiler could be blocked.

Water pump problem

I would just replace the whole pump. you could rebuild it but they never seem to last that long with a rebuild. should have them for between 70 and 100 dollars. its been a while since i bought one but i remember them being relatively cheap. do you use a water filter? it will extend the pump life quite a bit
