It may be a stupid suggestion but have you checked the strainer in the reservoir? It Could be blocked. And if you haven't removed the brew head sieve recently? It could be gunked up.

For cleaning it's best t use citric acid packets sold in stores as it hurts the metals inside the tank the least, but in a pinch you can use vinegar, although it's much more corrosive and could hurt the machine.

When using a cleaner remove the brew head sieve, as a lot of junk will collect and can block the sieve, with resulting no flow for brewing.

Hope this helps!

I have a De'Longhi EC330S Pump Espresso Maker, 15 Bar it has been making great coffee for a year, but now the seals have blown and water just pours out from everywhere. Can it be repaired?

The problem seals on my EC330S are the one on the steam frother shaft and the connecting pipe from the pump to the boiler. The steam frother shaft seals are available from but the ones on the pipe from the pump are not available from them even though the pipe is. Mine are leaking badly so will have to look for some from a seal manufacturer if DeLonghi can't supply them.
