If this is a BUNN, the problem is the heating element is turned of by the switch on the side or the heating element is bad. Feel the rear tank area of your unit. it should feel warm to the touch at all times that is is plugged in. The water must be up to temp to work properly.

Trying to figure out which direction to turn the knob inside the coffee bean grinder to make my coffee weaker. Others have told me that the finer the grinds, the stronger the coffee. And the courser the...

You can run more water through the same grind you are using now or you can trun the big knob in the bean hopper to a larger #. That will make the grind coarser. You can turn the knob to a larger # anytime but to turn it to a smaller # it has to be grinding or you will damage the grinder. If you have 2 knobs in the bean hopper, you can turn the small knob down towards the -(minus) and reduce the amount of coffee in the brew unit.

I am pregnant,Can i drink tea or coffe?

When pregnant, you should limit your caffeine intake. Tea has really low amounts of caffeine, so a cup every so often probably wouldn't be a problem.

Coffee however contains a lot of caffeine so it would probably be best to avoid it most of the time.

What are the recommended settings for grinding espresso on the astoria jada ak? as well as recommended temp and compression?

it depends what coffees you are using, Arabicas can go in higher temperatures and give you very good performance but in same temperature robustas or mixture of both will give you weaker result.
as guide you should use steam from 1 - to 1.3 kg cm2 pressure of pump 7 - 9 kg cm2
the grinder: 1 turn on grinder 2screw inn the plate until you start to hear metal sound. 3 go back for 4 positions 4 grind small amount coffee for testing 5 A ) if it goes to fast and cream is too white than go more fine 5B ) if it goes to slow = drop by drop than you go to larger grinding 6 repeat this with small amounts until you don't find ideal position.
i hope you will be patient in grinding process and you will go step by step.

Senseo HD-7810 Coffee Maker: how many uses can i get out of one coffee pad?...

Hi. They are only made for one shot, because the coffee will get weaker and weaker the more you use it. Also, it can compact and not let anything through.

The official stance from Philips on their website is this:

"We do not recommend this. The second cup of coffee will be rather weak. Also make sure the lid is closed properly, and do not press the 2-cup button if you want to brew only one cup."

How many scoops per cup?

Don't follow the machine directions for the coffee, follow the coffee
for amount per cup. Each coffee can call for a different amount.

Once you make a few pots with the same brand you will know if you want a stronger blend or weaker blend.

Start with 1 tablespoon per cup 6 oz of water.

My 92 corolla revs loudly but engine does nothing.

Sounds like you have massive clutch slippage and you will have to have the clutch replaced and resurface the flywheel for maximum clampping power at a machine shop.
