There is a relay that is supposed to open a valve to let the hot water flow and the relay is not working. see if your coffee maker is still under warranty and take it for service.

Hi just a tip from experience, grind the coffee fine and keep the spout ( where the coffee comes out) very near the cup, while making the coffee.

Mr Coffee Pump Espresso machine not working. Lights alternately flash between coffee and steam icons, machine makes noise, but coffee does not brew, water does not flow, steam does not come out.


The espresso portion may be clogged with hard water deposits, and the steamer tube with casein. Run a tank of plain white vinegar a couple of times then run a couple of tanks of plain water to flush the vinegar, Open the steam valve while the espresso portion is running and set the steamer pot under the steamer. Don't be surprised if a long white tube of hard white material slides out of the steamer valve. That's the casein, actually a form of organic plastic.

No water coming through coffee filter. I have descaled twice. You can hear the pump but no water and then it goes quite with no water. I have tried to prime the pump but still does not work. The steamer is...


If you open the steam tap while the pump is running does water come out? if so then you might have a blockage in the coffee solenoid or the bottom of the boiler. Do you hear a 'click' sound when you hit the coffee switch? If not the coffee solenoid may not be operating. The most common cause of the problem you are having though, is scale flaking off the boiler walls causing a blockage where the coffee water comes out. Try hiting the coffee switch, opening the steamer and then if water starts pumping out, close the steamer and see if water starts flowing out the coffee group. Do this without the portafilter (coffee holder) in place.
If you do get water flowing trough the group, try backwashing the machine.
If these things dont help then you should take it to an authorised repairer or open up the boiler yourself if you are a handy person and have access spare parts. Good luck, these machines can make a great espresso when in the right hands and working order.

I have a Krups coffee/espresso maker, with a milk steamer. It makes great coffee and espresso; however, the steamer is not working. It is not clogged; I cleaned the handle with a fine needle, and water...


There must be a blockage in that steam pipe, I think you need to dismantle the machine and remove all of the steamer parts off the boiler and look for the cause of the problem. Oftentimes it will be old hard milk that has been drawn up the pipe and gone hard from the heat. Once cleaned out prevention by blowing a large amount of extra steam through it after each use is the solution.

Water pump not working


Can you please try firstly making a "Pre ground Coffee" on your coffee machine by selecting the pre ground button and making a coffee without coffee in the bypass.

If that doesnt work, let me know.

If it does, open slide the grinder right up to the coursest setting and see if water comes through.

Once again if that doesnt work let me know.

Whenever we had this problem we needed to prime the pump. Turn the machine on and wait for the coffee light to come on. Then push the coffee button and turn the steamer on wide open until water comes through the coffee outlet. I hope that helps. The user manual can be downloaded from the saeco site.

Try opening the frothing valve by turning the dial and force water through it instead of steam by pressing the middle, coffee button. You may be experiencing vapor lock. Once the water comes through the steamer valve, turn the steamer knob off and release the coffee button. Then try the steamer button with the steamer dial open. This may do the trick.
