Espresso won't brew

I tried brewing a single espresso pod in the filter that came with the machine and was placed in the porta filter. The machine was turned on and no coffee brewed, just water came out.

Re: espresso won't brew

The only way to get hot water via the espresso filter without coffee will be due to using the wrong size filter holder forthe pod. The machine comes with three filter sizes for pod, single and double espressos. This could be a simple issue of using the right filter holder.

Sounds like a problem with the pods. Check they are manufacture recommended. When on espresso the pressure will be higher so a
"weak" pod could cause this. Unless the machine is producing too high a pressure. Check also there are no projections that could rip the pod when you close the holder.

Excessive water comes out the drain when brewing a expresso

Your 3 way valve is dirty or bad. Have you ever done a back flush with a detergent?
About every 3 months it is a good idea to do a backflush your machine with a blind filter basket. When backflusing you should only use a good espresso machine cleaner designed for an espresso machine's brew system. DO NOT USE a decalcification cleaner. First, clean the screen and dispersion plate plus the brew head and reassemble, which will prepare you for backflusing. Then, insert the blind filter basket into the portafilter with a ½ teaspoon of cleaner in the basket. Next, place the portafilter into the brew head and tighten. When the machine is hot turn on the brew button for about 10 seconds and then turn off. Then, wait 30 seconds to a minute. Next, turn the brew button on again this time for only about 3 to 5 seconds and then turn off. Wait 30 seconds to a minute. Repeat these last two steps six to eight times. After you have completed the backflushing remove your portafilter and rinse the blind basket with fresh water. Next, you turn on the brew switch to rinse the plumbing. Then, reinsert the portafilter into brew head and turn on the brew button for about 10 seconds and then turn off. Next, turn on the brew button for approximately 3 to 5 seconds and then turn off. Repeat about 4 to 5 times. Always remember backflushing is hard on electric 3 way solenoid valves, so it is not recommended do this no more than four times a year for a machine used in home application. You will find more good is done to your machine be properly cleaning the brew head.

I have a Baby Gaggia, several years old. I buy IZZO ESE pods, which I understand should fit the holder. They do not in that a pod sits loose in the holder, with a margin round the edge between it and the...

Please try the following:
  • Remove the portafilter and activate the brew switch. Water should stream out of the shower screen. If not you need to clean the group components, or the machine is broken.
    To clean the group components, remove the center screw. The screen should drop down, the dispersion disk may be stuck, you can pry it loose with a flat head screw driver. Soak both of these in a descaling solution.
  • With the group components removed (as above) try brewing, water should stream out of a single hole. If not, you may have a faulty pump, or seals.
  • If water streams out normally, be sure that you are using the single espresso basket. This is the smaller basket that snaps into the portafilter, and has sort of a tulip shape.
  • Your group head gasket may be worn, and will need to be replaced. These need replacement ever 6 months to 12 months, and need to replaced even if the machine is rarely used, because they are made from natural rubber that dries out.
    Replacements can be found at many retailers online, a few are:,, and

Unit will not brew when pod is inserted; works w/o pod however.

This may be one of two issues:
1. The pump is malfunctioning which can cause the internal reservior to not completely fill which causes issues during brewing. My unit dribbled random amounts of water instead of brewing for about a week before the pump died completely.
2. The puncture seal isn't in the right position. Open the Keurig fully so you can see the sharp puncture pin. Very Carefully push the black rubber gasket around it all the way up. Then pull it back down about 1/16". Brew a cup, if the problem continues, try sliding the gasket further down by increments of 1/32".

Not making espresso from beans

Are your coffee grinds wet? If they are you have a clogged brew head. Remove the filter screen. Then remove the 2 screws that hold the outlet manifold to the brew head. There are 3 things under the manifold. O-ring, tapered spring and a crystal ball. Don't lose any of these items. Now to clean the brew head turn the brew unit over to where you can see where the brew screen was. You will see 2 holes, 1 large and 1 small. Take a paper clip and straighten it. Turn the brew unit upside down and insert the paperclip into the small hole. Push the paper clip through and remove the plug. I have seen them over 1/2" long. Reassemble the brew unit crystal ball first, small end of the spring on top of the crystal ball, place the o-ring over the spring and place the manifold on top making sure the outlet pipe is to the outside of the brew unit. Put the 2 screws back and your ready to go. Run a detergent for espresso machines like Cafiza through the brew unit every once in a while to keep it clean. It doesn't take a lot of detergent and use the pre-grind setting and a large cup selection but don't put any coffee in.

Cuisinart grind and brew

This happens when the machine needs cleaned. Fill coffee maker with white vineger instead of water. Turn grind off, make sure empty pot is in place. Brew a pot of hot vineger. Repeat. Brew a pot of hot water. Repeat. This process removes mineral buildups inside machine. If you have access to filtered water, start using that to brew your coffee. I do and probably do this process 1 per 6 weeks.

Hi ensure that the group head has heated up before using I tend to screw the head in and place the porta filter on top of the machine to allow it to heat up (heat the machine up for at least and with regards to the tamping ensure that you tamp firmly and twist at the end to smooth the surface.You could try tampind the cofee in the portafilter before placing it in the group head then after you have placed the porta filter back in give it another quick tamp remembering to twist at the end to help smooth the surface.

Then pull a shot. I get great crema like this.Also ensure the cups are warm.

You can heat the brew head and cups by running hot water through them before using as well this method is called cheating the Silvia
