Question about Breville Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
The blinking red light probably is indicating heating element or control circuit failure.

I had a similar problem, but no blinking light, only cold coffee. I tapped on the relay (black box on circuit board) and violá. Red light, hot coffee, and happiness. The machine did the same thing a couple of weeks after the "fix", and a good slap to the left side, and I was back in business. My guess is that your switch is bad or sticking. Good luck.

SOURCE: No water thru the group head
We were having the same problem and this worked for us, right from an insert that was included with the manual.
1. Fill tank with water
2. Remove the filter holder
3. open the steam tap
4. press the main switch and the coffee switch at the same time
5. close the steam tap as soon as water begins to flow
6. If after 30 sec. no water comes out repeat the operation.
7. when it starts, draw off 4 cups of water
This worked for us after we had about given up,

is your machine new or is this a new problem? If you have had the machine for a while there is a possibility that your double wall filter is clog between the walls which would prevent the water from going through (this happens when your grind is too fine). If however the water does not go through when you do not have a filter in the basket than you have a diferent problem.
