Re: Senseo is not putting out the water
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.

Make sure first it is putting out enough water. People often think it's not sucking up the water when it is actually only putting out a very small amount of water...enough to see but not enough to suck up. If it's putting it out and not sucking it back up you have to have a clog or a suction leak somewhere.
First make sure it's putting out enough water. There can be enough water coming out to get the carpet wet but not enough that it picks up much water. This is most often the problem to most machines brought in for repairs. If it's putting out enough water and can't pick it up there has to be something restricting the suction. It could be a clog or something is allowing air to leak restricting suction. Inspect the areas where the suction comes from the machine, through the dirty water tank all the way down to the floor nozzle.
That would depend on what you want to set it up to do. For basic use, you attach an output hose or plumbing set up, perhaps a combination of flexible hose and rigid pvc, and put the output where you want the water to go. Then put the pump into water that is deep enough to keep it submerged while operating and plug it in. You may need to hold the output above the water surface where the pump is moving water to. This will allow any air in the plumbing to be pushed out - sometimes air trapped in the plumbing can prevent the water from going through the system.
If you are putting this pump into a sump - a body of water below the main aquarium, you need to be sure the pump is strong enough to pump water to the height you want it to go. The higher the water needs to go, the stronger the pump needs to be.
the salt light is done by a reed switch operated by a float in the salty water. float may be stuck - give softener (where you put in the salt) a tap and also stir the water inside the softener. i assume you have put in enough salt. its not a serious fault
