Question about Krups XP4030 Espresso Machine
The machine won't pump put any water, either from the head or the steam nozzle, no water comes out into drip tray either. I have tried descaling but cannot get water through with this process either. It makes all the sounds it should do however.

I KEEP having this problem... everything is in place, but no espresso. Nothing comes out the brew head. I have found multiple fixers for it. One: make sure you have water in the tank and that the tank is firmly pressed down (this was the most embarrassing of the mistakes I made), Two: try a slightly courser grind of espresso. On my Black & Decker burr mill, I have it on the 3 (of 12) to finest settings. Tamper only a little bit... not too hard. Three: when the flow is just not happening, try running some steam through the nozzle to see if you can get things moving along. Once I ran the steam through... it sputtered and coughed for a few seconds then steamed normally, then cooled it back down and the espresso came out fine. This was the most recent fix.

This may sound like a silly solution, but this happens to me a lot too, and this is how I fix it.
Just check the water container. Lift it up, and put it back down. Then, make sure it is really locked in, so press it down some more.
I know this sounds ridiculous, but the same thing happens to me ALL the time.
Hope this helps.

I started the descaling process as according to manual. I tried running water through every 6 hours or so, however it kept coming up dry. I left the water in for a total of 2 days before finally the water managed to come through.

You can try this different approach: open up the back of the appliance, and blow hard into the rubber hose that comes out of the water reservoir and into the pump, _while_ the machine is on and in espresso mode. The machine starts coughing, then water flows. You might have to fill the pump hose with a little bit of water.
