Hi
The sieve in the brew unit appears to be clogged, you say you have cleaned under the flaps, but are you sure there`s nothing left on the sieve? Clean out all coffeegrounds you find inside there. Also, check the grinder setting; it could be you have set it to fine. This usually makes the coffee barely dripping from the spout. After cleaning and adjusting the grinder setting, you should run a cleaningprogram.

In worst case; the sieve has to be taken out and cleaned, this is not recomended to do without training.

Leaking water under the drip tray


First, be sure to regularly push a straightened paper clip in that nozzle! It can get clogged with coffee grinds quite easily.

Then call Sunbeam and tell them you want the waste chute extender. It's a little plastic tube that fits over the nozzle to extend it further into the drip tray. Truth be told, you could probable push a 2cm piece of 3mm aquarium pump air tubing over it.

May be busted, but before you take it to the shop try these few things. 1. Unplug machine for 30 seconds 2. Then plug back in, (lights should still be blinking) Take silver handle that you lift when you put in coffee pods and gently push back handle as far as you can for 3 seconds. This should reset your machine,back to factory settings. To then reset coffee cup settings to your personal taste by: 3. You can adjust the fill of coffee by holding the large coffee cup down for as long as you want to fill it. Try holding the button down for 20secs., next cup of coffee should automatically fill for 20 seconds. Do the same for small coffee side. Hope this works,it has for me; just not sure because of the cold water pumping out issue. good luck

It is not allowing the water to go through when it says "ready" and I push the button. I have a new coffee in there and the water is filled but it drips slowly out as if it is having trouble (usually a...


Hey, We had a similar problem. Water just dribbles out if at all. Here is a trick that worked for us. In the K-Cup holder there is a tube that punctures the bottom of the KCup. They give you instructions on keeping that clean. But they dont tell you there is an equally important puncture tube at the top. THis tube usually has 3 or so holes or openings that flow water after the cup is punctured on top. I took a paper clip and pushed in (not too far) on these holes only to find coffee had lodged up there and blocked the hole. I ran a couple times after with just hot water and it works like new.

Will not dispense the water into the cup when the button is pushed


I have had this issue. First, check to make sure water tank is filled and correctly in place? Try descaling it; a kit came with coffee maker. (It just removes hard water build up, it may be blocking your water flow.) If that is not the issue, pull the tray where the used pods are dropped -Is it wet? Like the coffee is pouring into this tray rather than in your cup? If so, I have removed round silver plastic piece from around coffee spout,(gentle -do not crack it) then removed and washed the black spout, I even used a toothpick once, to remove the stubborn coffee ground, Once it was cleaned - it worked perfect. If you run water from the faucet into spout it should flow smoothly. I warn you though, not sure what this does to any warranty, but don't mess with my morning coffee! If the POD tray is not wet, I would tell you not that most likely your machine is not clogged by grounds, so you may not want to take snout apart. I hope this helps.

Just got a new Keurig mini. Plugged it in, put in the water, closed the lid, put a cup on the plate, pushed the power button, pushed the "coffee cup" button and nothing is happening.


My wife's mini single cup B31 quit dispensing hot water into the K-cup. It would go through every stage and the pump came on but no water, no coffee. Try this: unplug the unit, take the drip tray off and lay the Keurig on its back, with the top opened so you can see the dispensing probe and the rubber ring that seals to the top of the K-cup. The dispensing probe is sharp, with two small channels, one on each side. (Be sure you can spill a little water when you try this) With a kid's water blaster, or a rubber bulb, squirt water up the channels on each side of the probe. Do this a few times, then try to run it normally.
That worked for me, and loosened the few coffee grounds that were plugging the outlet.

Waterflow/heat seems fine - but little/no extraction


Try running the gro;up without the portafilter in place, what does the water flowq look like: is it a nice strong flow or barely a dribble. If if is barely a dribble, backwash machine with purocaff and check shower screen, that may be clogged. If you have a nice flow then try adjusting the grind on the coffee grinder.

Coffee has stopped dispensing


Looks like your machine is leaking internally and rather than the water come out of where it is supposed to, it is leaking inside.

Krups Nespresso FNA2 coffe/cappucino machine


First thing to try is a descale. Run the machine normally using it (as if making a cup of both types) a couple of times with a 50/50 mix of white vinegar and water. Leave the machine off but uncleaned overnight. run a couple of cycles with just water, and if there is still a slight vinegar taste then run a cycle with a teaspoon of baking soda in water, then flush with just water again. If this doesn't solve the problem, try again with 75% vinegar. If still not working, there is either a control board problem (may be solveable), or the valve/solenoid that stops/allows the water is sticking, almost certainly solveable by taking that apart and cleaning/lubricating. Definitely solveable by replacement. Let me know what you get after a descale if no luck. Hope this helps :)

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
