First, I'm not a Water Pik technician. But I have worked on similar water pump systems for espresso machines. You should call your vendor or MFR for service. Especially if it's still under warranty.
*** the following is for information only ***
* These units have vibration pumps that force short shots of high pressure water in one direction. Hence the pulsing action from the 'Pik'. If the tank goes completely empty while in use then air gets into the pump and one way valve. Refilling the tank (full) and restarting the pump will help push the air out. It helps to hold the probe (Pik) end down to the sink. Be sure to keep it lower than the tank and unit. Keep turning the unit on/off until the air is purged and you get a regular flow. If you have a clear tube and note water drops only vibrating back and forth in the tube, then there is still a bubble blockage. Shaking the tube up and mainly downward may help.
* If the water (in the tube) only sits steady with no movement then the and you hear a loud buzzing sound (or no buzz at all) then the pump is bad and needs to be replaced.
* I recommend a complete replacement of the pump as it's very tedious to dis-assemble and service. (lots of very tiny parts) Here is a link about it (but it might be too much information):

PS; you might check with your dentist as they usually the ones that promote this stuff, or at least have a service contact. (in this case it really won't hurt. ;-)

The squirl-cage fan (MSZ-A15NA) clogs up with mold once a year, which drastically deminishes airflow. I have had the dealer technician come out and disassemble enough of the unit to gain access to the fan...

Instead of spraying vinegar, i would say spray wd-40 spray.That will keep the fan and its internal assembly clean and not let the fan movement get tight and rusted.It will not allow the parts to get tight and rusted.-------- But once you spray wd-40, you have to let it remain there for 30 minutes to 1 hour, then turn the unit on .The wd-40 spray takes time to show its effect.--------- The wd-40 spray is easily available at local walmart and homedepot stores or at appliance parts repairs store.---------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Water does not seem to be getting to the heating area

I'm not sure if your saying it does not brew a cup of coffee at all or it is brewing but only cold water comes out. If it is just sitting there making a whinning noise and not delivering water it may just be dirty. To clean it you need to fill the resivior with a 50% white viniger and 50% water mixture. Run a brew cycle and let it sit for an hour. Then run several cycles through until it is out, refill the resivior with water only, run it completely through and continue with the water only until there is no more viniger smell or tatse. You will need to clean the brewer needle heads as well. Lift the handle to access the coffee pod compartment, remove the pod basket and use a paper clip to clean out the hole in the puncture needle. With the lever still raised, use the paper clip to clean out the three holes in the upper needle head. Replace the pod basket, close the handle and run a couple brew cycles through without a coffee pod.
