2 things can cause this.
1. the grinder is set to fine abd you are creating to much pressure and the pump is having a hard time pushing water through.
2. You are getting a blockage in the brew head from coffee residue and oils.
Tru pushing the prre grind button and making a coffee without putting any coffee in. Blank shot. If it works its you grind. If not its your brew head. Needs to be cleaned.

    I was having the same problem - When you remove the brew head you press the lever where it says press. When you put it back in do not press the lever- push it in slowly and watch that the top of the unit clicks down level - you will hear a slight click. This solved my problem.

Error code 5 on saeco minuto coffee machine

Error code 5 means the water flow is obstructed. Here are possible locations:
1- The machine was not descaled. Calcium deposits are clogging the water system.

2- The flow meter is not passing impulses for water flow speed & quantity.

3- Descale Descale Descale.
Before you select the automatic descaling, make a few espresso without adding coffee grounds. The automatic cycle does not clean the coffee side of the machine. You have to do it intentionally.

Jura impressa s8, the display shows" please wait" and doesn't switch to the Coffee Ready.

This error is because:
1- Flow meter is blocked & not sending signal of water flow.

2- Entire hydraulic system is filled with Calcium deposits and slowed down flow of water.
1- Open the machine and manually clean flow meter. It is located between the water tank & the pump.
2- Follow this by manually descaling the machine. Seelink. Do not use automatic descaling method suggested by Jura.

My coffee tastes watery. It seems as though the water flowing through the filter is going too fast. My other Keurig at work brews much slower, and the coffee is delicious.

Hi, Your coffee is ground too coarse. Make the grind finer as this will slow down the flow rate. If you go too fine it will just dribble and over extract the coffee."bitter". Dazza REPAIRER

The machine says "ready"

That Sounds like theres a blockage, most likely limescale has built up in the boiler. If you try descale now when water is only dribbling through, it probably wont work. Recommend strip down machine and unblock pipework and try get water flow to come back stronger, then try a descale cycle.

Carafe dribbles coffee no matter what you do. Pour fast, pour slow, dry the outside etc. Can't believe they can't make a pour spout that doesn't dribble. Any suggestions?

I often ask why we can put a man on the moon, but not make a coffee maker that doesn't dribble when I pour. I have the same trouble, and what I have found works for me is to be very careful that I am pouring with the spout dead center, and pouring fairly slowly. A little off to the side of the spout, and I'm cleaning the floor. But if I pour so the flow is right through the center, it works for me.

Good luck. And if you design the perfect carafe before I do, let me know. I'll buy one!

Steam comes out strong for 25 seconds, then almost completely stops and water dribbles from the steam tube, then strong steam for 25 seconds, then it stops and dribbles for 25 seconds, then strong steam,...

Check the thermostats on the steam boiler, one of them is not working, also check the main board for damage, if the pump is not pulsing when you are steaming.

Slow Brew...calcium

It is possible you need to use descaling solution and perform another descale. Are you using a good descaler? I recommend Parts Guru Best Descaler, instead of something like Dezcal. Do you know which hoses you pulled off? The very thin ones should never have bean fragments, but the bigger silicone tube from the water tank may accidently have some fragments. These can clog the flow meter and decrease the coffee output as well as the steam output. But usually the machine will give a Ventilate warning and not put out any water. Look on the Parts Guru website for machine diagrams.
