Run it without a k-cup... Keurig will tell you to check for blockage at the upper needle with a paperclip... someone tried blowing into it with a straw to free the obstruction... which Keurig assumes is coffee/Tea grounds... or caked up cocoa mix, if you use that product...

Coffee is coming out in drips

Could be some grounds are blocking the nozzles. Maybe soak the nozzle in hot water for a few hours, then if you can use a can of air duster or blow into the outlet of the nozzle to try dislodge the blockage

The motor starts and it looks like the water tries to go up the tubes but it doesn't. the steam part works. What is the problem

Hi there, I just had the same problem having bought a machine on ebay. Dismantle the brewing head, and take out the nut with the hole in the middle (the one with the spring behind it). then stick something small and pointy into the hole- I think inadequately dissolved limescale clumps at this point, and blocks it. Mine certainly had a thick plug of gunk blocking it at that point. Make sure you put the spring back in properly or it may start to drip.
Let me know if it works!

Very slow drip of water coming out. Takes longer and longer to make a cup of espresso.

Remove the screw and shower screen, make sure screen is not blocked with coffee oils.

The coffee doesn't come out. I tried taking the

I think I have solved it. When it doesn't come out, I put my finger under where it drips out of and move the piece that's under their around. You can feel the kcup inside move. This seems to work. It is almost like there is an air bubble or a grind that blocks the hole temperarly. I don't understand it but it seems to be doing the trick.

The tray below the coffee cup holder has coffee in it all the time. is something leaking? love our machine

The coffee residue is the result of the machine relieving its pressure into the drip tray. When it relieves its pressure, a little coffee residue with some water is released also, otherwise you would have an explosion of coffee inside your machine. If you are getting dry coffee in the drip tray you are getting an overcharge and that is not good. If you get residue under the drip tray, you have a blocked drain in the back of the machine just above the center of the drip tray.

No coffee, water going to the drip tray

OK, so this is a problem with your brew unit. The unit is not cycling correctly to tell the water to come through.

We had another problem like this just this week.

The wat we fixed it was 1) Give the Brew Unit a really good clean. 2)Make sure the Brew Unit can complete a cycle - manually rotate the brew unit components through a cycle 3) Lubricate the Brew Units moving parts if necessary using some Saeco or Other Food Grade Lubricant

Then try watch a complete coffee cycle by leaving the side door of your machine open, and tricking the micro switches into thinking the door is closed by engaging them with some card or something similar.

Let us know if this does not resolve your issue.
