Have you checked that it isn't clogged for one thing?

Possibly the pump has no suction because of a hole

Please check on the above and let me know what you find

Thank you for using Fixya

No Power after loud pop sound, is the power switch bad?

It is probably a bigger problem than the switch. If you are not experienced in working on electric appliances, you need to take it in to the repair shop.

I have La Cimbali Dosatron M20, working perfectly, i have only 1 problem. Dosing of water for cups, i want to change but i dont know how. i would apreciate if you can help me. Regards, Sulejman Sulejmani

Hold down the stop button for 8-10 seconds or until you hear the faint beeping sound, press button to program when you get the correct level press stop button. On some models you have to hold the button until you get the correct level then release. When you are done programming press stop button a second time to exit program mode.

M31 Dosatron

The micro screen is clogged. If front panel is removed, you will see a pipe leading to each of the heads, At the bottom of this line close to the top of the drain tray there will be a fitting (you need a 17mm open end and a cressent). Make sure water is turned off and machine is cool. When fitting is unscrewed there will be 2 copper washers and a small fitting with a silver screen inside it. Clean screen and make sure that the small hole in the fitting is clear.

Our topload Kenmore Elite washer will not fill with water. It starts to agitate right away upon setting the dial

try switch in the load size?? sounds like your having a problem with the pressure/ water level switch. it must think its full of water already. you would need to pop open the control panel. either 2 screws located on back of console (while looking over the top of machine and straight down you should see 2 Phillips head screws in both corner of top screwing straight down. if not the 2 front end caps will pop of control panel to reveal the screws. undo the screws and tip the console back( its hinged), the far left is the pressure switch, it has a clear plastic tubing leading to it. remove the tube and try blowing through it(clear the line) try also blowing back into the switch itself you should hear it click. if after that it still doesnt work id say the switch is no good

No water coming through brewing head

Hi there, I had a very similar problem with my Gaggia Classic. Worked fantastic every day for two years then one day the brew head was reduced to a very slow drip. I rang some Gaggia service agents and they all said it needs a service ($100-$150). The last one I called told me to descale it before bringing it in for a service as it was probably scale buildup. I told them it wasn't a gradual thing - it just suddenly stopped and they said what happens is the scale builds up to a point where a piece breaks off and clogs the pipeworks leading to the brewing head. So, I used the instructions outlined here: At then end of the second flush through the steam head, I closed the steam vale to try and push the descaling solution back through the brew head (just dripped through again) then left it for 10 minutes again. Did the same the third time and it went to drip again for about five seconds then bingo - burst back to full flow. Hope this helps.
