Problem with espresso - no water to the brew head

This morning I brwed a couple of shots of espressos, then on the my next try, apparently, all the water flowed directly to the catch basin. not a drop touched the coffee in the filter.

I've rebooted the machine several times and cleaned the brew head.

Anny suggestions?

    When we try to make espresso the machine sounds like it's working, but all the water ends up in the bottom tray. This is a brand new machine (a Christmas gift) that we just recently tried the espresso 'feature'.

    Help Please!

    i have the same problem...its not a matter of coffee ground around the water reservoir base though. i hate products that dont work out of the box because the 3 hours i will spend packing, returning, dealing with the store, coming back home, unpacking, etc are worth more to me than the 300 bucks...its like the ipod syndrome.

    Same problem after about 2 weeks the machine dumps water into the drip tray not the brew head. Have tried THREE machines and all developed the same fault. after a week or two. Krupps suggested may have been a 'bad batch' as I got all from same UK retailer (John Lewis). No problem with exchanging faulty units but I need one that works for more than 3 weeks! Tried turning off, unplugging from mains supply waiting 3 hours and restarting. No effect water still avoids the brewhead and dumps into the drip tray. I think 3 chances is eneough - I am going for a refund rather than to try a 4th unit unless someone can come up with a solution.

Same problem here. Since mine is out of warranty, I opened the cover and found that there is a filter between the water reservoir and the pump. This filter was clogged with grounds. I cleaned as much as possible out of the filter and it works again. There is still some water leakage onto the counter, so I need to do some additional work, but now I know where to look

On Vienna Deluxe after the beans are ground and ready to drop the espresso shots, nothing comes out and the red light goes on? I shut the unit off for a minute or so, turn it back on and it works ok, but...

Solid red light is a ventilate light.. Try Priming the machine to see if the light goes away.

Something may be in the flow meter. Its the while device between the water tank and the pump of the machine. You would have to open the machine and clean out the flow meter.

Also, if you haven't descaled the machine already, I would start there.

I have the briel multi pro EG 281 PG/APG. When I try make espresso, water comes from the frother and not from the brew head. Any suggestions on what the problem might be? Thanks!

sounds as though your brew head is clogged. when was the last time you descaled your machine? even if you've recently done it, it would not hurt it to do it again. descaling will eventually clean out the head and lines to the head and thus, your brew head should be despensing the coffee again. the reason it is having water coming from the frother is because under pressurization the water is shot into the areas that are open for releasing the pressure in the form of water. if one or the other outlets are clogged, then the next one available takes the pressure from it as it is re-routed to the only open source as your frother.

Espresso maker won't brew.

Most likely it is an internal problem, such as a broken valve or nozzle.

Cold shots

Remove the portafilter and press the brew button is the water that is coming out of the head warm or completely cold? If cold then one of the thermostats on the boiler is damaged.

Not making espreso all the time

Being that you just started using it I would not be concerned. You did the correct thing by cleaning the brew group. Check on your screen under total coffees. We usually recommend you change the brew group every 10,000 cups.

Make sure you descale the machine and you can try using the cafiza tablets to clean your brew groups internal passages.

Water flow

You will have to adjust your shot timing, and possibly your grind. To program the shot timing, hold the Brew Stop button until all of the brew lights come on; That means all of the buttons are ready to program. Next, pull some grind for your portafilter and push the button you want to program. For a single, you want to pull a 1 oz shot in about 15-20 seconds; longer for a double. When you push the button, the shot will start to pull; when the shot is complete, push the button again to set it. Then do the same for the next button. Each group needs to be programed separately. Holding the the Brew Stop button again will turn out the remaining lights and save your programming to that point. As to the grind, you want to have the grind fine enough to give you a quality shot in the right amount of time. Good Luck!
