Starbucks barista won't pull a shot

2 1/2 year old machine. we descaled recently. when drawing the shot it has been dribbling over the filter for quite a while but sometimes it would work correctly, until this morning---it come out slightly colored light brown water (kind of like when i clean it and run the water through).

Have you professionally cleaned the grinder ( + burrs)? To do this, would have to open the machine, remove the burrs, & clean them.

I have a lamona washing machine that is only 1 year old and its started to stink. I have cleaned the machine with several hot washes, vinegar, washing machine cleaner ,the lot, and still it stinks after a...

it would be the air flow is blocked, washers get there air flow from the drain pipe, if this starts to get blocked it stops air flow but still allows water to go out, this will leave a lot of congestion on the washing machine door glass, use a descaler tablet on the hottest wash you can do and then leave the washer with it draw out, depending on the condition it can take upto 3 times with the descaler, use the liquid type and watch washer as you use it as you will need to put it in the draw every time it empties its cycle. overnight leave some bleach in the drum toilet type will do fine, this will not damage the washer but it will kill all the bad bacteria in the washer drum and the smell, then before use do a quick wash no heat wash or 30c. hope this helps.

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.

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.
