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.

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.

Just descaled my 2 year old SENSEO machine. Everything working well EXCEPT only coloured water comes out into the cup. tried with several different pods.

Hello, Chris -

The problem may lie with the small tube which pokes a hole in the coffee pod. The tube may be blocked by bits of coffee grounds or loosened scale.

You will need to remove the holder into which a pod is to be inserted.

You then should be able to snap the holder apart.

Then, you should find the small tube which pokes a hole in the pod for brewing.

Use an unbent paper clip to try to gently dislodge anything that may be blocking the tube. Do this over the kitchen sink while water runs over the tube.

There are also tubes which inject water into the pod. Find them and use the paper clip to dislodge any clogs.

Reassemble the coffee maker.

Without inserting a pod, run water through the machine in the brewing cycle - 3 separate times. Place a glass or metal measuring cup to collect the water. Notice if any debris comes out with the "brewed" water.

Then, insert a pod into the machine and run the brew cycle to determine if the coffee is properly brewed.

If the coffee still isn't brewed properly, I suggest you contact Senseo (owned by Philips) Customer Service by telephone. I have no idea where you live, so I cannot provide you with the correct telephone number to call.

I am answering from the USA.

Best wishes.

Try cleaning both exit needles. Make sure to also clean the area around the pod holder if there are any coffee grounds and dirt. When you put everything back, fill the tank with fresh water and run few brew cycles without inserting the pod to rinse the machine.
Also, do not use softened water because it can cause problems, especially if you use Keurig. Filtered, tap or bottled water is a better option.

The grinder works but coffee too light in colour and no foam

You didn't indicate what model you are using but it could be several things.

If your coffee isn't ground fine enough your brewing time may be too short. Your double espresso shot should take between 18-26 seconds to brew. A single should take between 9-13 seconds to brew.

If you are getting the correct brew time, try a different coffee bean. Some coffee is roasted more that others and that could be the reason the color is light. Make sure you are using fresh beans too.

Make sure you are putting the correct amount of ground coffee into the porto filter and tamping it well. A porto filter that isn't full will not brew a good shot.

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.

Gaggia syncrony logic not dispensing water. Just drops pods and red light comes on. have cleaned brew unit shower screen and dispenser tube. still have the problem

Lubricate the brew unit with a food safe grease this should help.
The brew unit becomes stiff and fail to load up fully this stops the water being dispensed

I have the Keurig Gourmet Deluxe Home Brewing System #B60 When the pod is in place with the cover down the water won't come out while brewing. It will not make a brewed cup of coffee. If I remove the pod...

Check that pod has a punctured hole on BOTH ends.. If the bottom or to wear not punctured this will happen with most Keurigs.
Replace the pod holder if defective.

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.
