You need to descale it. step 1: run some white vinegar through it. step 2: use a commercial descling product (more effective than vinegar). Step 3: if the water flow is completely blocked by scale you need to un screw the exit filter by tipping the machine upside down. Then, remove the scale that built up under the filter, and clean the filter holes. Reassmeble the device and run a descaler through it.
It takes 2 full decanters to fill the tank. You fill the tank with 1 full decanter of water and pour it into the top and close the lid-wait 3 minutes. Then fill the decanter again and pour it into the machine and close the lid. Plug it in and wait 15 minutes for the water to heat it up. Then you will be ready to brew coffee. You will pour in 4-10 cups of water at the top and have your filter basket ready with filter and grounds. In 3 minutes, you will have your coffee.

I bought a cafe parma (delonghi) on e-bay and was disappointed that it was so mineral-encrusted when it came. I was afraid to even plug it up -- much less run any water through it.
I mixed up hot water and vinegar and poured it inside. Lots of solid flakes emptied out the top a couple of times. Then I mixed up a final solution of water and vinegar and ran it through the machine.
I had been running a motorized Hamilton Beach model for about two months. And it had quit siphoning water. I couldn't find the Black and Decker or Mr. Coffee models similar to the one I had been running for years. They looked the same as the Cafe Parma model.
Now my Cafe Parma is making great expresso!!! I'm getting ready to take the Hamilton Beach apart. It will probably end up in the trash. It was 40 bucks on clearance at Wal Mart.
it sounds like a restriction in the perk tubes have you cleaned I mean deep clean the unit??? It should be as any auto coffe maker should be clean deeply every three to six Months depending on how much you use it. How you do this is take 1/2 viniger in pot and fill to capacity.. Dump this into the unit and brew it through. Then ite recommended to rinse them by brewing three to 4 times with clkean water. now if this dosent work its probably behound feasability to repair
