SOURCE: No water flow from Krupps

I'm not sure what the other expert has told you but before removing the back have you tried to descale it.

I know you say it doesn't pump but if the pump is running then even the worst blockages are sometimes cleared by just using pure white vinegar.

And in answer to your question yes there's a catch on either side of the cover which you sould be able to find using a flat blade screwdriver or a thin strip of metal / knife blade.

I bought my nespresso magimix in France and now I am living in japan. It's humming quietly but not making any coffee. Would ot have anything to do with the voltage?


Hi, I would say so. You may have to get a voltage ( transformer). France they have 220v and in Japan they have 100v . Good luck.

Many times the lines get frozen as they run through the back of the refrigerator section. Sometimes simply turning the temp up in that section will open the lines. Additonally, you might have to remove everything from the unit and totally defrost it to clear it. IF it's Ice.
Do you use a filter for the water comming into the unit? IF not you could have a blockage. If that is the case you will have to find where the block is and remove the block.

Lost directions - how to descale keurig ?


Hello, Here is a tip i wrote, see if this helps you.



Have you ever wondered, 'how do I descale my expresso machine?' First lets us understand what is exactly is scaling. The build up of minerals inside the hot parts of your coffee machine or espresso machine is commonly called lime scale. When lime scale builds up inside the Espresso machine, it slows down the water flow, reduces the boiler capacity and can prevent your coffee machine from working properly. To keep your Espresso machine operational at full order, it is important to descale it every three months. The time intervals between descaling depend upon many factors. Quality of your water and the amount of water running through the machine are the two main factors that decide the frequency at which you should descale your Espresso machine. The more you your machine, more often should you descale it. In some cities, in conjunction with a water filter you can use your coffee machine for a year or more without descaling at all. If you use less water by drinking espressos you'll need to descale less often than if you make cappuccinos.


Descaling products are widely available from stores that sell coffeemakers and espresso machines. Be sure that the product you buy to descale your Espresso machine is intended for this specific use only. Before you descale your Espresso machine, always unplug it and make sure that it is cold. Also, never immerse the appliance in water and nor should you use abrasive cleaning products or scouring materials on any part of your Expresso machine. In case your Espresso machine does not come with a instruction guide or booklet, then use a proper citric acid based descaling solution designed for espresso machines. This should be mixed and prepared as per the instructions on the bottle or packet. Once your Espresso machine has been descaled properly you would not be left wondering, 'how do I descale my expresso machine?', treat yourself to a great cup of coffee. Some popular models of Espresso machines are Krups EA8080 Espresseria Automatic, DeLonghi Magnifica EAM3200S, Krups Nespresso CitiZ & Milk XN 7106 Fire-engine red, DeLonghi Perfecta ESAM5400, DeLonghi PrimaDonna ESAM6600, DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM4200S, DeLonghi Perfecta ESAM5500 and Magimix Nespresso Citiz M190.

How do you go about "descaleing" the coffee maker? The water does not flow through the coffee capsule very well.


I know that most grocery stores sell a "cleaner" or two next to their coffee filters/coffee makers/kitchen appliances section. These are usually heavily acidic, and will do a great job of cleaining your coffee maker. I've always been wary of acid in my coffee though, so I just use white vinegar. It'll do a decent job of cleaning out the coffee maker. Run a 1:1 mix of water and vinegar through your coffee maker, drain it, then run water through at least twice.

Scaleing/deposits building up in a coffee maker are signs of imperfections in the water. All tap water has it, but if you don't want to worry about it, use bottled or filtred water in your coffee pot. Plus, your coffee will taste better!

Try cleaning it with vinegar. Sounds like you need alot of help on this one run a full pot of vinegar through the machine. with a paper filter in the basket. then run two to three full pots of just water. this should help decale the coffee pot.

Sorry to read about your issue.

The brewer should be de-scaled at least every 3-6 months. Scale is harmless, but if left unattended, it can hinder optimal brewer performance. De-scaling your brewer regularly helps maintain the heating element, removable water reservoir and other parts of the brewer that come in contact with water. Better water quality and water heating means a better cup of coffee, tea, hot cocoa or iced beverage. We recommend de-scaling your brewer at least every 6 months (every 3 months if your water has a high mineral content). The de-scaling process involves using 48 ounces of undiluted white vinegar.

Take 48 oz of white vinegar. place in tank. pretend you are making coffee (Do No Use K Cup). let the water fill you mug. then empty that mug. Do it again until tank is empty. then let sit for 4 hours.
Then fill with fresh water to the top. let that tank of water run thru. towards the end taste the water.
If you taste vinegar..use more clean water, until the taste is ok.

I tried to help you. Please help me and Vote/Rate this response. Thanks and good luck

I have the same model, same age, same problem. It appears to be the seal between the metal heating coils, and the plastic switch that selects steam or coffee. Possibly caused by no cleaning the injector hole with the tool provided with machine (which causes a lot of back pressure). On mine, the screw that holds the switch to the heater has corroded and can not be unscrewed, so not possible to access rubber seal, and repair. May be tricky since this is plastic sealed to hot metal with a rubber gasket. So fo now, i unscrewed the black base plate on the bootom, and set the Alessi in a tray. THen just wipe up water after use.

Hello Pat, You have a common occurring problem. Your tubing in clotted. The least expensive solution is to use regular vinegar instead of water for several cycles, no coffee grounds. The clot will dissolve and water flow will return to normal. Cycle just water until no taste or smell of vinegar is present. Have some HOT COFFEE.
