Hello The lights on the front of the machine wont stop flashing so I can't press the cup symbols to make coffee. The hot water is coming out though through the steamer spout. Thanks!


Circuit Priming
When the machine operates for the first time and when
all the water has been dispensed, the machine circuit
needs priming. In this case, the 4 buttons of the control
panel will flash at the same time.
• Press the ON/OFF button . The 4 buttons will
flash.
• Place a container under the cappuccinatore.
• Open the "hot water/steam" knob by turning
it anticlockwise.
• Press the hot water button.
• Wait for water dispensing to stop.
• Close the "hot water/steam" knob by turning it
clockwise. Remove the container.
When the first priming ends, the warming up
starts. Before brewing coffee, water and steam,
please wait for lights 15 and 16 to be permanently on.
The machine is now ready to brew coffee and dispense
steam. Please see related sections for operating details.
Note: if priming is not completed, the 4 buttons
will keep on fl ashing. The machine cannot be
used.

sounds like you need to prime it. if the water tank is full, then there's no water in the espresso machine. even after we followed the directions in the manual for priming the sirena, we still couldn't get the water to go from the reservoir in the back into the machine.

johnshami had this solution on another post, and it worked for us:
  1. make sure the water in the tank is stone cold -- which is a no brainer since it will not heat h2o unless it's primed.
  2. take off steamer wand cover, turn the steamer knob clockwise till pump starts.
  3. then s*ck (as you would on a straw, with your lips sealed around the end of the steamer wand) the tip of the end of the metal tip hard until pump stops
  4. may need to do it a couple of times. yes this seems crazy, but it works! you are flushing out the vapor lock in the pump.

you need to prime the machine. if the instructions for priming don't work (as they didn't for us), then try this:

johnshami had this solution on another post, and it worked for us when the manual's instructions to "prime" the machine resulted in no water leaving the tank to enter the machine:

I have a Briel ED 132A Classic how do I prime the pump for the st


Sometimes the self- priming pump feature may not work due to a momentary "air lock" condition. If water does not flow from brew head, place a cup under the steam frother. Open steam control and turn the switcher onto the icon of the half-full cup until water flows from steam frother. Turn off steam control, as Espresso maker is now ready.

BKC600XL Stainless Steel Coffee Just purchased...during the priming no water entered the machime and it is stuck on "heating". I think i had the water filter on wrong. I fixed that but now need to reset to...


After trying just about everything (I had the exact problem you describe) I finally got it working.

In my case the reason why it was stuck on heating is because no water was getting into the heating tank. I removed the charcoal filter, unplugged my machine and plugged it back in again. I then saw the water resevoir level drop and knew that water was now being heated.

I made a couple of cups of coffee then put the charcoal filter back in and now everything is working great.

I hope this helps your problem.

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.

Priming problem


Make sure you try to prime right when the machine is turned on, so that there is no boiler pressure making it more difficult to prime.
