Because the hot water spout is controlled by gravity, it is partially clogged, Here is a little story and see if this helps,Let me know

Have you ever wondered, 'how do I descale my expresso machine?' First lets us understand what is exactly is scaling. The build up of minerals inside the hot parts of your coffee machine or espresso machine is commonly called lime scale. When lime scale builds up inside the Espresso machine, it slows down the water flow, reduces the boiler capacity and can prevent your coffee machine from working properly. To keep your Espresso machine operational at full order, it is important to descale it every three months. The time intervals between descaling depend upon many factors. Quality of your water and the amount of water running through the machine are the two main factors that decide the frequency at which you should descale your Espresso machine. The more you your machine, more often should you descale it. In some cities, in conjunction with a water filter you can use your coffee machine for a year or more without descaling at all. If you use less water by drinking espressos you'll need to descale less often than if you make cappuccinos.

Descaling products are widely available from stores that sell coffeemakers and espresso machines. Be sure that the product you buy to descale your Espresso machine is intended for this specific use only. Before you descale your Espresso machine, always unplug it and make sure that it is cold. Also, never immerse the appliance in water and nor should you use abrasive cleaning products or scouring materials on any part of your Expresso machine. In case your Espresso machine does not come with a instruction guide or booklet, then use a proper citric acid based descaling solution designed for espresso machines. This should be mixed and prepared as per the instructions on the bottle or packet. Once your Espresso machine has been descaled properly you would not be left wondering, 'how do I descale my expresso machine?', treat yourself to a great cup of coffee. Some popular models of Espresso machines are Krups EA8080 Espresseria Automatic, DeLonghi Magnifica EAM3200S, Krups Nespresso CitiZ & Milk XN 7106 Fire-engine red, DeLonghi Perfecta ESAM5400, DeLonghi PrimaDonna ESAM6600, DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM4200S, DeLonghi Perfecta ESAM5500 and Magimix Nespresso Citiz M190.

Did you check the actual pressure of the water after the regulator....that regulator could be set at a higher pressure...the 20-50 means that it can be set anywhere fron 20 to 50 PSI....
Back the regulator down to the 20 range and see if it helps....that will still be enough to fill the tank...
You cn also partially close the water valve to the regulator if needed...

You are correct.Also check the tank for lime.By unplugging and removing top of machine (2) screws and remove fill basin.You can then remove your t-stat probe to check.If it is lime up you can crack off the lime and reinstall it in the tank.If limed up I would suggest de-liming.T-stat part# 4314.0001.

Sounds like your timer part #32400.0002.This is the new type timer which replaces the dial timer.Another thing is does this happen when you turn on the on/off switch? I would also check your liquid level probe in top of tank.Always a possibility bad liquid level board.If it only does this when you push the brew button the timer is bad.

Hello, you have a problem with the inlet valve or timer. hit the brew button and then once the water starts running through the brew cone pull the plug, if after a couple of minutes the brew stops your problem is going to be with the timer (you should replace it) if the brew does not stop at all then you have a problem with the inlet valve (it has a piece of calcium stuck in the valve) you should replace the valve kit in this instance. You can buy parts from either bunn or a company called holiday house in cali. if you have any further questions please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!! Mike

There is a timer located in the top of the machine. Take off the two screw and turn the timer down a little bit.
