It can be a wire that has loosen to the rapid steam boiler or the boiler that has to be replaced.

Try first to descale the machine to see if that helps.

Why does the coffee maker cycle but water does not run over the grounds in the basket?

First I'm not a Brewmatic tech, but I have worked on this and other similar brands. You should call your vendor for service. Especially if this equip is on loan. *** the following is for information only.***
* This brewer has a multiple timer selection as well as multi function. (it can brew in different ways and sizes.)
* The batch selector determines the brew time. This is set up according to your needs and the pots you will be using. If you change pots then the machine needs to be re-calibrated to the new sized pots.
* Each timer setting needs to be individually calibrated and checked. This is usually done by the tech. Some brewers can be set without taking the cover off but most are locked out by the vendor to prevent tampering. You will need the operator/tech manual to make adjustments. (check your MFR online site)
* There is usually 2 tubes from the tank (top) to the brew head. The 2nd tube which usually branches off the brewing tube is a by-pass port which will trickle down between the wire basket and funnel. This is why it is important to keep the metal wire basket inside the larger metal brew funnel. Some may come with a separate by-pass solenoid but most have a needle valve. I usually set this needle valve by closing it all the way down (clock-wise) and opening it back up 3 full turn (counter-clockwise) I've found and average of 3-1/2 turns works for most 1 gallon brews. Opening it more will give you more watery brew and closing it down a stronger and sometimes bitter brew. It really depends on your grind size and brew amount. You will need to test it at least 3 - 5 full brews to find the sweet spot. But, stick with 3-1/2 turns if your not sure.
* If there is a 3d tube , it usually runs to the hot water faucet which is gravity fed so it does not need a solenoid valve.
* Some brands may have one more tube that has a solenoid attached which usually runs to the middle of the brewer near the top of the decanter. This is the water by-pass for Iced tea. Tea brews into the funnel the same as coffee but the funnel has a smaller drip hole. This allows the tea to steep longer in the funnel. This tea concentrate is then cooled down with the addition of cold water from this extra middle port. Most brewers with the tea option has a taller appearance to fit the tall Iced tea dispenser.
* Final; the brewing spray head should fill with hot water unless the timer or brew solenoid is not working.
* Short brews can also be caused by water probe or water control board problems. Check the water probe for crud or fixed too low in the tank. Low water in tank will lead to slower brewing and longer brew times.
* Brews are also affected by water fill valves. Not opening or intermitent operation. Note some valves are not rated for hot water feed. If your connected to a hot water line then the inlet valve needs to be rated for hot water.
* Final, check if your operators are pushing the right batch size button. Call your coffee vendor for help.

I don't have a manual on how to use the Sunbeam Tea Drop Hot Tea maker, where do I find how to use it ?

I had the same problem as mine was given to me without the instructions, but its very simple to use. You just open the top of it, remove the little tea basket and the basket holder. Next you want to fill the little pot to the desired amount of ounces and then poor it down into the tea maker. never go past the fill line that's etched inside cause you will be cleaning up water from everywhere! Next, put the pot on the heated plate and put the tea basket and holder back in place. Put your chosen tea in the little basket and then close the top of the tea maker. It will start to brew the tea now. Always have your pot in place before closing the top, otherwise the tea will start brewing all over the hot plate. you'll probably hear this crackling popping sound, and that's just the tea maker heating and pushing the heated water through the machine. Once the tea maker has stopped crackling and popping and is no longer dripping, the tea is ready. When you get done using it, run a full pot of water through the machine to clean it. Repeat until water comes out clear. Also clean your basket and holder and occasionally you're gonna want to clean the part where the tea drips from the maker into the pot. You just reach under and pull it out, clean it and replace it. It just slides right out and back in. Tea can stain it and build up there, so you definitely want to clean that. Be really careful because it gets really hot, and releases lots of steam if you happen to open it while its brewing for some reason. Occasionally you will need to clean the inside of the actual tea maker. When you do this, make sure it is unplugged. Make sure not to get the hot plate wet. Clean with soapy water and carefully rinse it out. there's a little rubber stopper inside at the back of it and you want to take it out while cleaning and put it back when you're done. Once you've gotten it all cleaned and rinsed out, run a few pots of water through it, and if there's nothing in the machine or pot, it should be clean. If there is, carefully rinse the inside of the machine out again, then run a pot of water through again. If there's still stuff in the machine, just keep repeating til the water and machine are clear. I cant stress enough to be careful because of the electrical parts and you don't want to ruin the machine. Just take your time and be careful. Hope this was helpful!

Water is not coming through, though the steamer works fine.

If you mean no hot water through the pipe (for top-up and teas) then its probably the valve itself. However if you mean no water through the portafilter then its either a pipe blockage or, more likely, the pump or the three way valve

Fill Water Tank But Water Tank is Full

Check the little black rectangular box which is in a plastic channel at the back. To work properly, the rectangular box, with the narrower end facing downwards, needs to be floating at the top of that channel. Apparently it's a magnet which signals the circuitry that the water tank is full. Make sure it's floating to the cap of the channel. If not, you can get a replacement one from Gaggia.

Alternatively, try draining the machine. Page 37 of the user manual, Drainage. Place cup under the steam/hot water tube, turn knob clockwise around to 9. If the pump is ok, it will start automatically and start filling the cup. Drain about 1/2 cup of hot water and return knob counterclockwise to start position. If the flow meter is not damaged, the Ventilate message should be gone.

Won't fill with hot water only

if you have the proper voltage at your solenoid (proper voltage should be on a label on the side of the valve) and you can't feel it clicking on and off and can't feel any water coming out the other side then the problem is your valve is physically stuck close. the valve operates like a piston, when you apply voltage to the valve it creates a magnetic field pulling the plunger up and allowing water to pass. and when voltage is dropped the spring loaded plunger drops back down shutting off water flow. the two things that would cause the valve not to open would be the electro magnet is on back-words or some scale (more likely) has gotten inside the valve and caused it to either not open and close or just clogged the hole

My coffee machine says decalcify ventilate

For ventilate:
When it says to ventilate, it is asking you to prime the pump. Put acup under the panarello wand ( the steamer/frother) to catch thedischarged water and press the hot water button (upper left button onmy machine). Wait until air stops coming out with the water, usually3-5 ounces, and then press the hot water button again.

You machine is now ventilated (primed) and should be ready to go.

For decalcify:

Recommend downloading and following these directions.
