SOURCE: Senseo coffee maker

Having dismantled and inspected several of this "strange machines" my conclusion is the following:

There is an oscillating-piston pump inside with in- and outlet valve.
It is energized by a microprocessor controlled circuit for a working time depending on the button selected (1 or 2 cups). The pressure and flow are nearly constant for a perfect working pump.
The pod holder restricts the thruput by its central hole. (E.g. you get now an extra pod-holder with a very small hole for expresso type)

So if you don't get enough coffee it may be that
1) the duty-cycle (timing) of the pump has changed.(not often occurring) no repair, you have to undergo electronic and programming work
2) the pump lost efficiency (cylinder of the pump clogged, piston not working with complete stroke, spring force fadening or just one of the 2 valves leaking) ca be "repaired" after dismantling machine ,extracting pump and taking it apart, success not garanteed - grinding valves is already time spending
so my principle before starting this work is to run the machine without the coffee pod to check the water output, use a new holder with clean central hole, if this works it will be nr.
3) the central hole of the holder is clogged, may be not by limestone, but dried coffee extract (grease) clean with needle or even better with micro-drill

The locks shut due to a pressure build up in the pod chamber usually caused by a blocked filter in the centre of the pod holder.

The only way to open the unit is to releive the pressure. The pressure will normally reduce over time, the duration being determined by the pressure build up, condition of pod seals and the strength of the blockage.

A quick DIY solution: (small cable tie and screwdriver required)
Un plug the unit from the mains:
Remove the water container and prise open the rear snap fit panel of the unit carefully using a screwdriver to expose the internal workings, the overflow pipe at the top of the cover must be disconnected to gain enough access to work on the unit.
.The small metal boiler in the centre of the unit is used to heat the water for the machine, if the boiler is still hot allow it to cool down sufficiently for work to commence.
The exit pipe at the top of the boiler feeds directly to the pod chamber, if you squeeze this pipe you will feel that it is under pressure. Cut the cable tie connecting the pipe to the boiler (be careful, dont cut the pipe) and remove the pipe to release the pressure, a small ammount of water will be released during the procedure. The lid should open.
Reconnect the pipe to the boiler replace the cable tie, refit the rear cover making sure to push the overflow pipe back on before you snap the cover shut.
Remove the pod holder and clear the blockage blow through the holder in the reverse direction to ensure the filter is clear.
Replace the pod holder and pour a small amount of water on to it. The water should exit through the delivery spouts if the path is clear.
JOB Done.

SOURCE: Senseo coffee maker not working

One of two things, first of all, it wont open until it cools down/depressurizes. First problem is that the ground coffee is two fine, and the second possible problem is that the coffee is packed too tightly. That is assuming that you dont use the pads but coffee pad adapters.

fill the unit up with a bottle of peroxide and let stand for an hour. It will soften the gronds to a muddy consistancy so it will flow out. Add water and brew in an hour. It will clean out the unit as well like new

You can try to rinse it internally with citric acid - don't forget to soak the pad holders in the acid as well. There may have been a buildup of calcium inside various parts of the machine.

Some machines can be adjusted, but that always requires opening it up.

Lastly, the pump may have failed. In that case it's probably a write-off since a new pump will probably cost as much as a new Senseo . .

Lid is sealed shut and water is not being drawn from resovoir


it sounds like the pod holder is clogged, it has only one small hole to let out water. open up the machine in the sink as it will spray due to the water pressure. try the other pod holder first. if it works check the other one by holding it up to the light. if it is clogged clean the first one by using a pin to clear the hole.

Lid is stuck shut on my senseo


I just had this same problem. The seal is stuck and might have coffee jammed in it. I unplugged it. Then I pushed down on the lid and pulled up at the same time. It opened for me. I hope this helps.

Decreased output from Senseo


I'm thinking it needs to be "Descaled" Heres info from Senseo.com:

Does my Senseo® appliance need to be descaled? Yes. Descaling is an important element in Senseo maintenance. It should be done at least once every three months, up to six times a year!

Keeping your Senseo free of scale will:
  • Ensure you have maximum cup volume
  • Ensure you have maximum coffee temperature
  • Make your Senseo produce less sound while brewing
  • Prevent your Senseo from malfunctioning
  • Prolong your Senseo's life.
The descaling process takes about one hour and should not be interrupted. Only a descaling agent based on citric acid can be used safely in the Senseo. Other agents, including vinegar, may damage your appliance or not remove the scale entirely. If the procedure is not performed correctly, scale residue may remain in the machine. This causes scale to build up more quickly and may cause permanent and irreparable damage to the machine.

For the right procedure to descale your type of Senseo, see attached document.

Senseo won't fill itself on initial flush


Sounds like resevoir was not seated properly or something is in the resevoir. try pushing the pin on the bottom of the resevoir, do it over the sink, and see if water comes out. if tht works then its internal to the machine.

Senseo stuck after using coffee pods that have "milk" built in....5 days later


I had the same problem. I waited for a while as the instruction says but didn't open. But, I got it open!!! by turning and slightly pulling a small plug behind the water tank on the backside. (remove the water tank then you'll see the little plug. see attached photos) I think it will let air in and vacuum seal get released. After it opened, I gently turned the plug back and push it in as it was. Now, it is running perfectly again. I just had a great coffee. :-)
