Try this. put the lid on the filter holder w/o the filter basket (no coffee) in it and hook it up to the machine. fill the espresso reservoir with water enough for 2 espresso cups. (by the way starbucks friend of mine advised to only use distilled water, coffee tastes much better and no calcification build up in machine) turn on espresso part of machine, wait one minute then with full glass of cold water under it, open knob to steamer wand. this forces steam through the wand after a few secs and presto - cappuccino!
good luck, worked for me this morning.

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.

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.
