You might need to prime the pump manually since the machine has been moved.
directions: Fill water tank. Turn power on. Open the steam knob all the way. Press the coffee button. Put a cup under the steam pump wand. Wait until you see a steady flow of water and no air. When you see the flow of water, close the steam knob. Turn off the coffee button. Now the machine should be ready to brew an espresso.
If that does not work you can contact the service center for more suggestions: Electra-Craft 41 Woodbine St Bergenfield NJ 07621 phone 201-439-1700 fax 201-439-1701 [email protected] www.electra-craft.com
I posted part of this response in the 'same problem' area for this machine. The 'prime the pump' solution fixed my machine. You must make sure that you open up the steamer knob on top all of the way open and loosen up the steamer nozzle if it is clogged with hot water. Once water and steam is flowing normally again, your machine should resume making coffee the way it was supposed to.

Turn off the Keurig coffee maker, and unplug the power cord. Allow the unit to cool for 30 minutes before emptying the water. This gives the water inside the hot water tank an opportunity to cool, helping to prevent accidental scalding when emptying.
Pull the lid off the top of the water reservoir. Lift the water reservoir straight up and to the right of the coffee maker. Pour out any remaining water in the reservoir into the sink.
Turn the small thumb screw on the back of the Keurig coffee maker counterclockwise with your fingers, and pull off the rear access panel. If the screw is too tight to turn with your fingers, use a flat-head screwdriver to turn the screw. Once you remove the access panel, a tube with a plug on the end is visible. Pull the tube out of the plastic clip holder.
Place a large pitcher behind the coffee maker. Hold the end of the tube over the pitcher, and pull the plug out of the tube. Allow the water to drain into the pitcher. If necessary, maneuver the coffee maker to the edge of the counter, and hold the pitcher alongside the counter with the top at counter level.
Push the plug back into the end of the tube once no more water drains from the hot water tank. Empty the pitcher of water into the sink, and push the tube back into the plastic clip holder. Position the back access panel onto the coffee maker and secure with the thumb screw knob.
You need to advise the model .. but assuming its the CVA 40XX series ... the frist thing to check is the dispenser which has the two pipes comming out of the bottom. This can get coffee residue build up which usually causes 1 or both pipes to have reduced coffee flow. Indication that this is at fault are if the flow is uneven between the pipes or if coffee flows down the outside of dispenser. You can chck this pipework for blocages by openeing door and blowing air though the pipe extending on inside of door. The the dispenser is blocked you need to remove from rear of door and then clean out thoroughly in running water. If this pipework is not and
You need to advise the model .. but assuming its the CVA 40XX series ... here is what I would do; 1.First check is the coffee dispenser on front which has the two pipes coming out of the bottom. This can get coffee residue build up which usually causes one or both pipes to have reduced coffee flow. The indication that this is at fault is if the coffee flow is uneven between the pipes or if coffee flows down the outside of dispenser. You can also check the dispenser for blockages by opening door and blowing air though the pipe extending on inside of the door. The air should flow through easily. If the dispenser is blocked you need to remove from rear of door and then clean out thoroughly in running water. 2.Next check the pump and water path. The pump for the coffee is also used for producing hot water. So if the hot water is working normally then you can rule out the pump. If you not getting hot water then its likely to be the pump or a blockage in the flow through water heater. 3.If above OK then it's a fault with Brew Unit. Follow procedure to remove the brew unit, clean unit and test the air path through both pipes by blowing. Note: When you take out brew unit it not possible to access one of the pipes because its protected by a plastic shield. There is a manual procedure to manipulate the brew unit to expose this pipe so you can blow through it. However the likely cause is not a blockage in these two pipes but the stainless steel filter that the coffee must pass through. You will need an Allen key to remove the bolt holding this in place. Once removed you need to check all holes are free of blockage by inserting a very small wire in each hole. Alternately you can replace this part. If the filter is clogged then you should consider using a different type of coffee as some types coffees cause this problem and others do not.
I hope this helps. regards
Make sure the filter is properly in position and that the brew basket is fully closed.
If the coffeemaker is equipped with a removable water reservoir ensure that the reservoir is properly installed.
Avoid overfilling the water reservoir. The coffeemaker is equipped with an overflow slot near the top of the water reservoir. If too much water is added it will flow out of this slot and collect near the base of the unit.
The coffeemaker may require service. Contact an Authorized Service Center.
There are many possible points that the leak can be.
All points of the water supply from water tank to the pressure pump then to boiler and finally to coffee group. All this are connected together with plastic or Teflon pipes with easy fit unions secure with clips
You need to disassemble the machine and work it without the side panels of course with extra care since power electrical cables are exposed.
In this way with a very good visual check while the machine is in operation you can identify the leaking point and fix it.
check the plastic tube that runs through the water reservoir. usually when they stop moving water there is a leak or kink in the tube stopping the flow. sometimes they make the tube out of an almost surgical tubing and when the hot water travels through the tube it gets soft and collapses stopping the water. if you have one of the later ones, i suggest taking it back and demending your money back.
Sounds like the brew unit is blocked, to be sure try this, use the pre grounds button to brew a coffee, if no water comes out then it is the brew unit, remove unit and look under red o-ring, you will see a shower screen, clean shower and tube that flows to the discharge(top, you will have to remove the 2 screws up there, be careful not to lose the small plastic ball under the spring). Reassemble and try again.
Check the connection to the boiler from the pump, there is no water going to the boiler. Try this test, remove the brew unit you will see a white plastic valve behind it, carefully lift the small lever on the valve(HOT WATER), if water sprays, then the problen is at the brew unit, if no water then the boiler inlet or outlet is clogged.
