Try contacting your warranty service at Black and Decker if your machine is under warranty. If you don't know then you should be able to call and find out. I don't have the number for them but a quick internet search should find it or if you have your user manual then all information should be inside.

Machine seems to be stuck in descaling mode. I descaled but the warning light was still on. I pressed the descaling button and now the machine thinks it's supposed to descale. Can I reset the machine? I...

Descaling Problem SOLVED!
Folks, I really hope this helps a lot of you. I too encountered the dreaded descaling problem where it gets stuck in a loop and never finishes. I thought the machine was toast and see so many reviews that people experienced this and had to return the machine.
I tore apart the machine and figured out the issue and the super simple fix!
What happens is the water level sensor does not know it is running out so when the tank empties due to running dry, it never completes the cycle.
Where the water basin goes, if you look at the back lower down, you will see a small rectangular protrusion. This is the water level sensor that works by measuring capacitance. You know how sometimes your machine runs completely out of water and you have to prime it with the tea/hot water button? This is why! When you put the tank in full, water splashes over the edge and down the back. It coats the outside rear of the tank and the sensor with water so the machine thinks it still has an adequate level of water but then all of a sudden runs dry.
The FIX:
Take a paper towel and dry off the water level sensor and the back of the tank. When you put the tank in, do not fill it too high and put it in gently to avoid water spilling out.
Simple as that...fixed!

Brand new Mr coffee PSTX series coffee maker leaks water from the base while fluid level in reservoir drops even before the brew cycle is turned on. I have double checked the seating of the reservior but...

If you look where the reservior fits into the base, specifically where the water goes in, there is a rubber seal. It's held in by a circulary plastic piece and 3 screws. I took it apart there to see if something was amiss and decided after looking at it some that they had put the seal in upside down. So I put it back together with the lip of the seal facing up instead of down and I have not had a single drop of water leak from the reservior again. Now if I can get the thermos pot that came with it to stop leaking every time I pour a cup I will be a happy camper.

Just got a new Keurig mini. Plugged it in, put in the water, closed the lid, put a cup on the plate, pushed the power button, pushed the "coffee cup" button and nothing is happening.

My wife's mini single cup B31 quit dispensing hot water into the K-cup. It would go through every stage and the pump came on but no water, no coffee. Try this: unplug the unit, take the drip tray off and lay the Keurig on its back, with the top opened so you can see the dispensing probe and the rubber ring that seals to the top of the K-cup. The dispensing probe is sharp, with two small channels, one on each side. (Be sure you can spill a little water when you try this) With a kid's water blaster, or a rubber bulb, squirt water up the channels on each side of the probe. Do this a few times, then try to run it normally.
That worked for me, and loosened the few coffee grounds that were plugging the outlet.

Keurig states Ready to Brew, but it just spits water out. I've only had it since Xmas and I use Brita filtered water.

This same thing happened to me yesterday. I would start to brew, a teaspoon of water would come out, then nothing. I didn't descale because the pump wasn't pulling water. After calling Keurig, I decided to mess around with my machine since a new one was on the way. Check the intake valve where the reservior hooks up. I noticed some standing water in mine, so I spent 30 minutes siphoning it out with a twisted paper towel. I didn't think it would work- but it did! Back to full functioning, at least for now. Keep siphoning until the towel end comes out completely dry.

Solis palazzo espresso maker / water tank problem

Did you push the water button, before you opened the knob? When you finished descaling did the lights change? On any compact machine you need the let the pump stop on its own. Then go to the next part, rinsing. Again letting the machine stop on its own. Pump will stop and the lights will change. Once the machine has finished rinsing. You will have a steady water light and a blinking green light. Put your tank back on with fresh water, then push the water button(far right), then open the knob for water. The red light should go out, and the machine will heat again.

Coffee pot just would not brew this morning, though it worked fine yesterday morning. I emptied it and started over 3 times. The lights come on but that is all that comes on.

Check the water level. Check to make sure that the coffee filter under basket is clean and not plugged. YOu can remove your filter, then take out the basket and clean it....when did you purchase the machine?
