Water has probably been spilt in the beans area. The grinder needs cleaning out along with the chute

It should take about 45 minutes to an hour to properly descale the machine. If it only took a couple of minutes you really didn't descale your machine. If you used the powder it has to disolve completly before descaling. The best way to descale is with the descaler in the tank. Turn on the machine and run about 8 ozs of water-descaler through the wand and then turn off the machine. Wait 10 minutes and repeatthe last procedure. Do this until the tank is empty. When done with the descaler, rinse out the tank and put fresh water in the tank and run the whole tank through the wand. Then fill the tank and your ready to go.

If you water from steam water wand then machine is clean from water pump and boiler. The blockage is after the boiler and on two most posible points.
The first point is the coffee valve which it migh be blocked from dry coffee which is acting like a glue. At the link below
you will find the part diagram of your machine. the coffee valve is injector who conects the coffee group and it consist from parts from number 42-49 page 2/3. This will need to be removed and sink in warm water for 30 minutes and be clean well and put back on the machine.
Second posible is the coffee group which again you can remove the coffee filter from the group piston, is the st. stell disk with small holes all over it and itsecure in the center with a screw, so by removing this center screw you can clean the disk and the holes under it with warm water so all the dry coffe will be resolve and removed.

I have had this problem. The main switch on the machine burned over and I had to take it to a maintenance to put a new on. I do not know if there is a fuse on the machine. It was not in my case anyway.

Basing on personal experience (you can find more on Google probably), solutions are:

On percolated (filter) coffee machines:

Check water temp, if water temp is insufficient , most common is scale heating element , faulty element, faulty thermostat.
Check if water is dripping right at the center of the filter, if it is dripping on one side because the orifice is clogged, that can result in weak coffee.
Coffee blend not well distributed on filter basket.

On Espresso machines:

Check water temp, same as filter coffee machines (thermostat element, scale on heating chamber).
Ensure that coffee is filled correctly in the filter cup (fill at level), and well pressed.
Ensure that the coffee mixture that you are using is not too coarse, buy the apposite one for espresso.
Ensure that you are not leaving the machine brewing for a time that is too long, and Italian coffee cup is very small, approximately one regular shot.

On the hob moka pots (espresso, Moka and Bialetti type):

This are the trickiest ones, you need art and practice to get a good espresso with a Moka, but when you learn, the result is better than what you may get with an home electrical espresso maker.
The frame on the hob must be not too strong, and the mixture coarse but well pressed, with water at level tag, or you will get a weak coffee.
On Mokas a good strategy is keeping hob at minimum, and turning up the flame at top when coffee starts coming out.

French and turkish cafetieres:

Ensure that you put enough coffee, water hot enough, and that you left the infusion enough time to get a strong coffee.

Note: insufficient pressure and clogged lines on electric machines never give you a weak coffee, exactly the opposite.
Not pressed mixture always gives weak coffee, but too much pressed mixture may give you coffee with bad taste.
