Question about Keurig Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
Hi it sounds like it does need descaling i would do it more than once as it can build up and block the machine, once you have done this it will be back working again.
if you had no water or coffee coming out at all then i would say it has something else wrong with it like element etc, but as it is working but only slowly then descaling will solve your problem and should get it working as new again.
let me know if you need further assistance ok
plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Have you ever wondered, 'how do I descale my
expresso machine?' First lets us understand what is exactly is scaling.
The build up of minerals inside the hot parts of your coffee machine or
espresso machine is commonly called lime scale. When lime scale
builds up inside the Espresso machine, it slows down the water flow,
reduces the boiler capacity and can prevent your coffee machine from
working properly. To keep your Espresso machine operational at full
order, it is important to descale it every three months. The time
intervals between descaling depend upon many factors. Quality of your
water and the amount of water running through the machine are the two
main factors that decide the frequency at which you should descale your
Espresso machine. The more you your machine, more often should you
descale it. In some cities, in conjunction with a water filter you can
use your coffee machine for a year or more without descaling at all. If
you use less water by drinking espressos you'll need to descale less
often than if you make cappuccinos.
Descaling products are widely available from stores
that sell coffeemakers and espresso machines. Be sure that the product
you buy to descale your Espresso machine is intended for this specific
use only. Before you descale your Espresso machine, always unplug it and
make sure that it is cold. Also, never immerse the appliance in water
and nor should you use abrasive cleaning products
or scouring materials on any part of your Expresso machine. In case
your Espresso machine does not come with a instruction guide or booklet,
then use a proper citric acid based descaling solution designed for
espresso machines. This should be mixed and prepared as per the
instructions on the bottle or packet. Once your Espresso machine has
been descaled properly you would not be left wondering, 'how do I
descale my expresso machine?', treat yourself to a great cup of coffee.
