Question about Hamilton Beach 40729 Espresso Machine

1 Answer

I purchased a used unit. The unit does not put out water to brew the coffee. The pump runs, but nothing comes out. Does the pump **** the water out of the reservoir? If not, there is a valve the stops water from coming out of it.

    I do not find it humorous that ads for bogus money making schemes should be suggested as a solution to this problem!

    I think I have the same problem. I hadn't used my Hamilton Beach Espresso machine for a while, and tried to use it the other day but the water will not go through the Brew Head to make the espresso. The Frothing Nozzle is fine and still works well. I'm not sure what it is --I was wondering if calcified water has blocked it. Any ideas would be great!

    Same problem, I use mine 3-4 times a week, and one day it just stopped dripping. I cleaned out the filter and wiped down the brew head to clean off any excess grounds. I worked for a couple of brews after that and then stopped again. Is there a cleaning solution that can be ran through the water canister that won't damage the unit or poison me when I want to make another cup of espresso? Any help would be appreciated!!!

    Ditto to your folks. I have the same problem, no water through the brew head - the steam nozzle works fine. Any help would be appreciated. I tend to rush in where angel fear to tread. If I could even get a service diagram or something, I would tear into my unit and see if I could locate the problem.
    I have tried to get help from HB, but they do not respond.
    Any help would be super!

    If anyonw has since found a solution, I'd like to know cause U have the same problem. Someone gave me this machine whcih he hasn't used for months, so like in the other post, maybe length of time not in use is a factor in this problem.

No valve should be a part of this machine, other than a back-flow that works automatically when you insert the water reservoir.

The pump may have failed or you may have a kink in the line.

This model is not intended to be serviced, it is more of a disposable unit. You can however pry the top off of the unit to check the lines for kinks.

Hi. Sounds like a blocked or jammed brew unit. Remove brew unit and clean. To properly do this, you need to disassemble the brew unit. Canbe quite hard to do. The brew units are usually held together with plastic tabs, and may have to remove some screws to allow these tabs to release units assembly. Dazza REPAIRER

Brew group blocked is normally displayed when there is no water flowing through the brew unit. Remove the brew unit and use a small screwdriver(make sure machine is off and cooled), then gently lift up on cross section fitting on white plastic valve inside the machine, if water flows out it works, now we will plug in machine keep brew unit out and turn it on and press fitting in again, if water flows and pump kicks in and water flows out from valve and not under machine you are good, The coffee grind might be too fine and needs to be adjusted to coarser.

After the coffee is ground and pressed, no water goes through to brew the coffee and dispense it


Sounds like the brew unit is blocked, to be sure try this, use the pre grounds button to brew a coffee, if no water comes out then it is the brew unit, remove unit and look under red o-ring, you will see a shower screen, clean shower and tube that flows to the discharge(top, you will have to remove the 2 screws up there, be careful not to lose the small plastic ball under the spring). Reassemble and try again.

Saeco Incanto - No water through the coffee brewer


Check the line where the water goes to the brew unit(be careful), disconnect and try to brew coffee, if water exits then the blockage is elsewhere, check the line where it goes into the white plastic valve behind brew unit, if water flows then check the brew unit make sure it is not blocked at the screen.

Unit will not brew when pod is inserted; works w/o pod however.


This may be one of two issues:
1. The pump is malfunctioning which can cause the internal reservior to not completely fill which causes issues during brewing. My unit dribbled random amounts of water instead of brewing for about a week before the pump died completely.
2. The puncture seal isn't in the right position. Open the Keurig fully so you can see the sharp puncture pin. Very Carefully push the black rubber gasket around it all the way up. Then pull it back down about 1/16". Brew a cup, if the problem continues, try sliding the gasket further down by increments of 1/32".

Water pump?


If you could brewer coffee or get hot water out of the steam wand then it could be the one way valve on the bottom of the water tank. If you are running the pump output into a glass then it is probably scaled up in the boiler.

Flashing water light - will drain water but will not make coffee


Something is wrong on the coffee cycle side of the machine. Check the brew unit screens and and try doing a preground cycle with out inserting coffee. IF water comes out, I would looking into your grinder a little bit and try increasing the grinder size.
