Is my New Tassimo vivy broken all ready?

I bought this on Monday and started descaling it as soon as i got home,my mum switched it off in the middle of doing it so i had to start it again.When it was descaling,it was making a very loud pumping noise so i took the water tank out a couple of times to see if that worked,i think it did the job but now the water is just dripping out instead of pouring,im only getting like half a cup. I haven't bought any Tassimo pods yet,just using the yellow thing.Also,i got it from tesco online so i have no receipt.I dint get a email from them,just a text to tell me it's ready to collect.

I am not sure if you have a TARGET store near you, but I found some different Tassimo products there this past weekend.

SOURCE: Braun Tassimo Type 3107

I found that most problems around the tassimo relate to the peircing mechanism being clean and properly in place (it moves sometimes when you open the lid), or that the "window" that reads the barcode needs to be kept clean. When i've gotten all lights blinking or going right to manual, I have found cleaning the window seems to fix the problem more often than not.

hope that helps

SOURCE: the water pump does not appear to be working

The Keurig machine is either clogged with coffee grounds or the air bladder needs to be replaced. Use the key tool under the tray to clean out machine. If this does not work you can have the machine repaird. I hope this works.

SOURCE: hi,when my tassimo finishes filling the cup,it

For a Braun machine, unfortunately this is quite normal as it's part of the "purge" once it has finished brewing.

The new Bosch machines do not do this and finish their cycle with a steam purge instead.

SOURCE: No water comes out on ventilate. At first, the

It should take about 45 minutes to an hour to properly descale the machine. If it only took a couple of minutes you really didn't descale your machine. If you used the powder it has to disolve completly before descaling. The best way to descale is with the descaler in the tank. Turn on the machine and run about 8 ozs of water-descaler through the wand and then turn off the machine. Wait 10 minutes and repeatthe last procedure. Do this until the tank is empty. When done with the descaler, rinse out the tank and put fresh water in the tank and run the whole tank through the wand. Then fill the tank and your ready to go.

Giaggia Brera descaling problem

been talking to Gaggia (Philips) and they told me that with the newer Breras, you need to ill the water tank, put the machine into standby, then press the long and short cup buttons together for 6 seconds. This will start an auto descale programme (that they didn't mention in my manual!). A small amount of water will be dispensed through the coffee nozzles, then it will stop and the warning triangle and the prime warning light will come on. Place a large container under the panarello, then turn the knob to the right to dispense water. It will dispense about 50 - 100 mls (cold) water, then stop for about a minute. Just leave it and eventually it will empty the tank. Refill it and start again, but it will stop after a few seconds. Turn the knob back to central position, then it will dispense another small amount of water from the coffee nozzles, then stop with warning lights again. Turn the knob back right to dispense water, if it stops because of empty tank, just refill it. Eventually, the machine will stop and go to standby. Turn the knob back to the centre, refill tank yet again and the machine will start normally WITHOUT that descale warning light. HOORAY !!

I have a Saniplus in my bathroom its connected to a sink, toilet and shower. The thing is when it is used its fine but after the pump stays running, until you tap the machine in the middle on the right,...

Your saniflo has a membrane that covers the electric and switch, it is probably starting to get covered in limescale, have you tried descaling the unit, you can get descaler from saniflo and the instructions are on the bottle, its very easy to do, there are otherb cheaper makes of descaler but as far as I know saniflo descaler is the only one with the instructions on the bottle.

There are other things it could be like a faulty switch or heavy/hardened lime scale on the same membrane mentioned above or the membrane could of be deformed and lost it's shape causing the problem, but all of those problems would need a engineer and maybe even parts, so try decaling first

two hot red and black 110 volts each, 2 grounds, 1 installed in the middle screw and one to the body chasis in a mobile home after removing the copper bridge, standard home has only 1 ground and needs to use the copper bridge from the middle screw or ground and the body chasis, if your getting juice, TURN OFF THE POWER, Then tighten all 3 screws inside your pigtail plug to make sure your getting a good connection.
