It sounds like the tank isn't full. Unplug the machine and make sure there is a pot underneath to catch water. Pour clean water into the tank until it starts flowing out. Plug the machine in and let it heat up. Then try brewing coffee.

The way your machine works is that there is a holding tank for the water and it isn't actually brewing with the water you just poured in, it is using the holding tank water. If the holding tank gets low, and you pour water in all it does is fill the tank but nothing will come out.

Hope this helps.

Question for Solis Master 5000 Digital. After being professionally repaired, it has worked fine for about 2 months, and then suddenly stopped brewing coffee. I cleaned it.Then I decalcified it using it's...

I am not familiar with the digital model. But it sounds like something didn't get put back together properly. The top mesh is very tricky and easy to strip if you took it apart to clean. I had a problem with mine and now just leave it on and wipe it off in place. If its not tight water will just bypass the coffee grounds. Sorry, I couldn't be more help

Not dispensing water

I have the same problem, took it apart and looks like the water connector after the water heater has a relief valve that is shooting water out of the relief part. Took it apart and the plastic part inside has crumbled apart from the heat. The part has three hoses that connect to it with a black relief valve on the top. I don't have a part number for it yet, but Krups should be able to tell you if you describe it. If you still have the machine, here is a guide to taking it apart:

Good luck.

No water is pumping thru the water spout or the coffee spout, the machine is reading fine grounds and press okay for water. i've adjusted grinder dial and pressed water button but nothing happened

I got this machine and there was grinding noise but no water coming from the spout or coffee from the dispenser.

Took the back cover off. The big lump in the middle is the water pump. One of the wire connections was hanging off mine. Pushed the connector back on and everything worked fine.

Great coffee, rubbish construction!

Keurig Mini Wont Brew Water won't come out

Had that happen just this morning with my mini-keurig, the needle was horribly clogged. Found a solution on another forum that said to stick a straw over the needle that punctures the cup and blow really hard, then suck really hard and it pulled the debris right out! Then do a cleaning cycle (water&vinegar) to clean out any buildup.

Doesn't pump water through the sytem coffee grounds

it doesnt use a pump. there is a tube around the hot plate where the water boils. the steam rises and then condenses and falls on the grounds.

check the metal plate under the carafe. if it does not get hot then you have a repair job on your hands.

it is most likely the thermal switch.
if not then it is the thermal fuse
or the heating element

Automatic astra II pulls a few great shots then error light on

The error light usually comes on when there is no water flow through the group after about 5 - 10 seconds, indicating a clog of some sort. The fact that it happens after two shots, however could indicate an issue with the processor. The problem with the steam wand could also point to a clog situation, especially in the other wand is working. First, try running shots through the problem group with no grounds at all in the portafilter; Say five or six shots if you can to see if you get the error light. Look at the water flow in the process: The water should just pour out of the portafilter. If the water is running freely and you still get the error light, you are probably looking at a processor/sensor problem. If not, it may just be a restriction. Remove the screw from the middle of the group head (the diffuser), and remove the screen and the brass plate and check them for clogging. You really want to wait until the machine is cold before you do so as the parts will be extremely hot. As for the wand, try removing it, and check it for obstruction.

2 problems: not enough hot water, and where the rubberized tube goes

It's my opinion that the tube goes in the boiler so that when the water boils, the steam will push the water up the tube and to the brew head. Without the tube, you will just get steam through the grounds.

Good luck!
