mcdevito75 here, Make sure everything is set to make coffee, New or clean filter, filter basket set in machine. Your coffee maker might need cleaning also.------------ Fill resovoir with white vinegar, let it run thru the machine 3 times, half way thru ther 3rd time stop machine and let stand for 30 minutes. resume brewing, then fill resovoir with water and let run thru machine 2--3 times to get rid of vinegar. If this don"t help you may need new coffee maker.
On the inside of the basket is a line or ridge close to the top, that is your fill line. If you fill the basket to the top and tamp to that line then that should be perfect. For the portafilter it should be no more than a 90° angle with machine if it goes father then it is time to change the group gasket.
To clean your coffeemaker:
1) Pour four cups of undiluted white household
vinegar into the water reservoir.
2) Place a paper filter into the removable filter
basket and close the brew basket lid.
3) Place the empty decanter on the
Make sure to accurately place the
decanter on the warming plate
to avoid the possibility of overflow.
4) Start the brew cycle:

brew button to begin the brew cycle.

c. Repeat Steps 1 – 4b.
I assume your coffe maker used to produce more coffee for each use. Roughly 6 ounces per large cup, and now is only making 3 oz. cups.
If your coffee maker is sputtering and not able to "suck" enough water to fill your cups of coffee it is most likely due to cavitation caused in the little pump due to a stoppage, which is most likely lime or scale buildup somewhere in the pump line.
To fix it, don't take your coffee maker apart. Get a bottle of distilled white vinegar, and pour it straight into the empty water resevoir. Press brew with no coffee pod so you are just running the vinegar through the system. Pour the vinegar out of the cup and back into the resevoir. Add some ice to cool it off. Repeat about 10 times. This should clear out the toughest lime scale clog.
After you notice the cups are filling full of water, Replace the vinegar with fresh water. Run about 5 or 6 cups of fresh water through the system to get rid of the vinegar.
