Question about Krups Orchestro 889 Espresso Machine

Krups Orchestro 889

After rinse at start the 'Steam' LED flashes and water has to be driven off before coffee can be made. Also, occassionally, soon after the start of coffee making the cycle stops and the steam LED flashes again. The grounds bin and tray collect water, which never used to happen. The flow to the cups seems to be slower than when it was new, but I can't be sure of this.
The machine is almost 2 years old and is used a couple of times most days.
I am an able engineer and happy to probe the insides, but some guidance beforehand would be appreciated. Is a service manual available?


Caffeine deficient,

I have been through the book and it gives no information on flashing power and clean light together. Quite often a full dismantle, clean and lubrication of the brewing unit will make things better when they are acting incorrectly.
