Re: metal shards in hot water
I would save the shards, package up the machine and take it back to the seller. If you don't have your receipt, credit card receipt, take a copy of your check, anything.Take pictures of everything and write down everything that you do and date it.
Be insistent with the seller and tell them you expect them to back up the product s they sell. they may or may not cooperate. It is a situation where they and the company are susceptible to a lawsuit, so you can be pretty confident here.If you have had it for awhile, then call the manufacturer, tell them your problem and that you expect immediate refund for this dangerous piece of equipment

I guess it's the metal part in the water tank that makes contact with the machine when the water runs out. When you take the water tank off the Senseo it's in the bottom right corner. If you can't repair it, a spare water tank isn't that expensive.
hi there, the small flakes are bits of lime scale from your boiler system, to fix/ reduce flakes/particles complete a de-scale cycle on your machine using de-scaler. water hardness- set on 1 will change the length of time before it will ask you to de-scale the machine. Note- hardness 1 is the max time length. hope this helps
it's the check valve with the metal spring on the top. cut the tie wraps and put the tubing into the water fill area and make a small cup. water will be hot so watch out. any ideas where to get replacement parts?
The machine have a separate heating system for steam than hot water for steam. The steam system it might be full of scale. If you hand are good you can easily remove top panel and side panel. You can follow the teflon pipe from the steam wand and it will lead you to the steam solenoid valve and the small copper steam heating system and desasemble it both the valve and small boiler and remove any scale and dirt from it using a wire brush, shurp screwdriver and similar tool. Then poot them back together. You can try the machine with panel removed so if it needs something more to try once more again. One small tip advice. Use your camera and make pictures of everything before desasemble them, then you are safe if you forget about something. In this way you can clean everything metalic that the water pass though.
Typically this is caused by the heating/water unit inside the machine drying out. Not being totally familiar with your machine let me offer this suggestion: if you have a "hot water" function that allows you to run hot water out of the machine use it to allow water to get back into the heating unit. Once water flows through without interruption you should be able to brew coffee again. I know this is the case with Jura machines and the problem you described is identical to what happens with those machines when the internal heated water tank runs dry.
Chalk in the system, let it run a couple of times with plain vinegar.
just fill the machine with about half a liter (one water container) vinegar and collect the vinegar in a cup so you can reuse it. run the full 0.5 liter, wait an hour and repeat.
Than run 2 full watercontainers plain water.
should work again. Cheaper than antichalk fluid and works the same
Mine just developed the same problem. Me being an engineer, I decided to take it apart and found the problem. There is an aluminum tube shaped like a "C" with a heating element inside of it. Water flows through this metal tube, is heated, and then pushed via steam pressure. There is a metal brace that holds this "C" piece securely to the bottom of the machine. This brace is sharp and overtightened, which caused a small hole to form in the metal, causing the leak (in my machine of course). I am currently researching how to patch aluminum so I can hopefully fix it.
