Hot water will not come down thru coffee


Your pour over coffee brewer has a reservoir that holds more than a pot of water. First thing you need to do is turn off the machine. Then put the empty coffee pot on the burner. Then take another container and fill it with fresh cold water and pour it slowly into the coffee maker until it starts to come out into the coffee pot. Stop pouring in water.

Now turn the machine on and let it heat up. Now you can brew normally. The reservoir has to be filled before you turn it on or you will end up eventually burning up the heating element.

I replaced fuses - and on display it says "selftest"


HI
You must have a Magic Comfort +. 3 things might be wrong.
Your CPU is bad and needs to be replaced. You might have a bad sensor on the boiler. Something is not in place.
Can you get the pump to work by pushing the water button?

The hot water steam knob on my Sirena espresso machine no longer engages to prime or steam. It just turns and turns and turns....


I had the same problem. Here is how you fix it.

There are screws behind the water tank. Once these 4 screws are taken out, you can take off the top heat plate of the sirena. Then there are more screws holding down the outerlining from which the heat plate rests on. Take these screws out so that you can take out the outer lining. This will give you full access to the part you need to work on.

Once the machine is open you will need a small allen wrench to tighten the specific part that has come loose. It attached to the axle from which the knob is attached to. Its a metal part that resembles this picture at this link

http://www.rceasy.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/08/servo_arms.jpg

On this part there is a small screw that needs to be tightened so that it controls how far the knob can turn. When this part spins along with the axle, it will hit a stationary metal block that keeps it from turning too far. You will have to mess with the mechanics of it to figure out what I am talking about. Hope this helps and good luck!

Rancilio Silvia indicator light not turning off


Hi

There is a reset button inside on the front side of the boiler (you have to take the top of the machine off. There are 4 screws and remove the water tank). It is located between 2 black wires and is a red button. Push it in and test. There is also another problem that you might have. If the brew thermostat is bad it won’t heat. To test for this, push the steam switch and wait 15 seconds. Then open the steam knob and push the middle button and see if the water is warm. If it is then you need a new brew thermostat. That is the thermostat that has the red dot on the top. It sets on top of the boiler next to the steam thermostat. If you take the top off, make sure that the machine is unplugged.
If none of these things work check the heating element with an ohms meter. The reading in the terminals should be from 12 to 16 ohms. If no reading the elements is bad and you have to replace the boiler.

Heat temp and time


When a machine takes a longer time to heat up, this is often due to scale on top of the heating element, try using a descaler product, and running a descale cycle a couple of time.

If it is not a scale problem, then it is usually a faulty thermostat or a faulty element.

Slow and low heating/temp

If it is not a scale problem, then it is usually a faulty thermostat or a faulty element.
When it is a faulty thermostat water gets hotter than normally.

Machine Fault Error No 06 at start up Model is Krups XP7240 Expresso - not listed in product list


The error 06 (comes after start up) and machine in auto test - happens because more than one problem. One of the compulory services, rinsing, change water filter, cleaning OR / AND descaling is out of date. Start off with one at a time and do ALL.
Reconfirm it by going into "Product Information" and confirm that the cycles since previous cleaning, descaling and water filter replacement is ZERO.
Your machine will NOT have start up problems any longer

Takes forever to warm up


Hi,

Have you decalcifyd the machine?

If there is calcium in the boiler then it takes long time to warm up and if you much calcium in it then it never be warm.

I think you have to replace the boiler on that machine:-(
