Hi,

I think your "water turbin" also called flow meter is gone and have to be replaced.

To check this you can do the following:
Open the steam knob and try to make a cup of water, if you only get a half cup of water then the flow meter has to be replaced.

If you not get any water then you have air in the system, to fix this you have to get a little bellowspump or similar.

That you have to do is:

  1. Fill up the pump with water
  2. open the steam knob, when the pump starts remove the water tank and set the pump in the water inlet
  3. press in water with force, that can happen you must do this more than one time.
Try to do this and hope you get your coffee:-)

SOURCE: Flotec Shallow Well Jet Pump won't pump water

The tank is an air tank, it works like a cushon and accumulator.

Have you reconnceted the pump? If not fill the pipe that goes to the well with water. It should not drain down, there should be a foot valve that prevents the water from running back into the well. So if the foot valve is working it should not take a lot of water to do this.

Pour water into the suction side of the pump until the pump is as full as you can get it, reconnect the pump and start it up. Yes it does need to be primed

Good luck

SOURCE: i have a flotec water pump that sits on top of my

if the pump is working correctly, it can either be, need more water to prime it, or something in the well, such as low water, plugged filter, etc....sometimes when you have a system that is intermittently used, it can take 20 or 30 minutes of continuous priming to get it to pull, enough water to maintain the prime.

SOURCE: new 1/2 hp jet pump with tank not working

Your hose size is to small. Use a 2in black plastic line out to the lake. Inspect your foot valve, and
take your pump apart to see if you may have a pebble stuck in it, and remove the inner workings
and clean. Contaminates build up inside and need to be flushed out. Remember to replace the
gasket. Tighten all your hose clamps. Once your ready to start, spray shaving cream on your
fittings to see if your sucking air. I've been through it all and my pump works fine.

Davey XJ70 pumps bore water but flow dwindles when garden hose attached thus requiring pump to be turned off to stop burn out. Marc


possible it is a jet pump that has a return hose back to the foot valve to assist the pump to lift the bore water higher to work the pump
if that is the case ,when you turn on the tap on the pressure to the lift jet is reduced and so the pump cannot lift the water from the bore --it runs out of water
the fix here is to restrict the flow out of the tap so that jet pressure is maintained--- don't turn the tap on more than 1 turn
the reason is the lift height is too great ,indicating that the bore water level is lower than it normally is

My pump is running but not drawing water from the bore hole. What is the problem and how can I solve it?


the pump needs priming first as the water in the pipe to the foot valve has drained out ( foot valve held open by sand grains and not sealing off properly)
the bore is empty
water level too low for the pump to lift water

My machine reads "prime water system


The reply cannot be helpful if any explanation is offered without knowing the category, make and model of the coffee maker.
Basically the water flow in the system is slowed. The machine may need descaling.
If the pump is louder than normal, it is air locked and will need manual priming to let it pump normal.
The manual priming is to inject a few drop of water into the pump (just like a speaker needs a sip of water to continue his speech).
To manually prime the pump you can use a syringe, a Turkey bastor (if you are in USA) or use a hand pump made available with some makes (included as accessory with Saeco, Gaggia espresso machines).
For descaling you may use the link to order a reliable descaler:

How do you prime the siena?


Schaerer Siena machines can become airlocked from time to time leaving the pump running yet sounding rough. Easiest way of remedying this is by running the hot water (either by pressing the jug button or turning the hot water knob on the side depending on which model you've got) option through the silver wand. Once you get a strong water flow through this then the machine pump has been primed and you can then begin making coffee as normal. You'll notice the sound the pump makes will change as the water comes through.
Good luck!

Saeco rio profi making a loud noise no water coming out


Someone onCoffee Geek had this to say and it sounds like it could be the same problem:When I first got my machine--a steal from a fellow barista friend for $40!--It had been sitting dry for about 18 months, and I had the same problem with the pump. After trying some things myself, I eventually called the manufacturer's help line and was told I needed to manually prime it. I used a little squeeze bottle full of water to slowly fill the intake tubing with water and turned on the machine and opened the steam/hot water valve which turned on the pump. After some stuttering, it caught and has been fine ever since. So yes, I would recommend manually priming and then running water through the pump, boiler, and steam wand until all air is out of the system. Hopefully that will fix you up.

Pump was running very loud for some time now it comes on and no water is pumping through the system.


Friend had similar problem... Clean filter, added earth, primed pump and sound went away and had great flow... If not, possible impeller problem..

When I turn on my STA-RITE 1.5 HP pump, it makes a humming sound.


A humming noise is fairly normal if the pump is running and pumping correctly. I am guessing this is not the case. Usually it is just a stuck impeller that is the culprit. Power down the unit and open the pump housing to access the impeller. Then gently turn the impeller feeling for resistance (some resistance is normal from the magnets of the motor). If everything seems ok close and secure the pump housing. Try powering the unit on and see if it starts up correctly. If it is still having issues manually prime the pump. If the pump runs correctly for a few minutes after manually priming but slows or stops you have a leaky seal or fitting to find. Finding the seal is not hard but will take a little time and patience. With your garden hose, very carefully run water over each joint and fitting with the pump running. It will take a minute or so of water running over a leaky seal for the pump to prime so take your time. Make sure not to get water on the motor as it can deliver a very nasty shock and destroy the motor. If none of this gets you up and running the cause may be the motor is bad and needs replacing.
