I just had this same problem. The seal is stuck and might have coffee jammed in it. I unplugged it. Then I pushed down on the lid and pulled up at the same time. It opened for me. I hope this helps.

There is a possibility it just needs more water or it could be 'furred up' because it has not been purged or descaled for a long time. Fill up with water and place a large jug '500ml min' under and press both the single and two cup buttons at the same time. Refer to the user manual for the type of descaler to use.

Hope you did fill the plastic canister on the back, with water
because what you write there is what it does when there is no water in it

there is a float at the side of the machine by the water level, if the float gets stuck the red light will continue to flash even though water is present. Use a magnet on the outside of the machine by the water and float level and raise the float when connected to the magnet and the light will stop flashing red rapidly

I found a quick fix for me and the no-water problem is to totally dry out the receptor under the reservoir (where the water container fits into) with paper towels, and then try again using warm water...not hot.
But this is an indication that there is some calcium buildup in the hoses and filters. Time to clean the unit! Here is the manual online to fix this, and the instructions for descaling are on page 13.

Hello shid9
This is an easy fix. To decalcify your unit you need to make a water/vinegar solution. 2 parts water and 1 part vinegar. You might need to run two pots of the solution through if the first one is very cloudy. When done with that, rinse with 1 pot of fresh water. This should help remedy your calc problem. I hope this is helpful for you.
Happy brewing! NormanZ

is the red light flashing as though not enough water, if so use a magnet to connect to the valve inside the machine, the valve can be found along the water level where the float is. what is happening is that the float is stuck. by connecting the magnet to the valve and very slowly moving the magnet along the water level, upwards the valve will follow and the water will begin to heat as the light changes to a slow flash, if it doesn't work try again as you have not connected to the magnet

Hi. Who says to use vinegar. I wouldn't use that. Sounds like your pump is not pumping at right pressure. Vinegar can make the lime/calcium build up, break up into too large of pieces. which can block the pump. Descale solution breaks these deposits up. allowing it to be flushed from the system.
