Won't make coffee

I press the brew button, coffee is ground and dumped - no water runs through. I've tried using the steam wand & water comes through it?

    coffee grinds and dumps but only one third pours into cup, seems to be some in the drip tray, but still not enough to say it is a full 30 mls of coffee. Have pulled machines apart and descailed with solution but still does not work properly. The machine kind of smells like it is over heating.

Probably the machine was accidentally programmed to dispense nearly zero volume of coffee. This happens if the Coffee button is held down for several seconds - that starts volume programming the button. Then if the user released the button when the coffee started, the machine thinks that's all the amount the button is supposed to dispense in the future.

To fix: Hold down the coffee button, keep holding it while coffee is ground and dispensed. Once it has reached the volume you want, release the button. In future, the button will dispense that amount of coffee.

If the machine makes a real bad sound as its dumping. Gears are destroyed or damaged.

Grind could also be too fine. There are a few failsafes on the machine, one of which is a timed grind cycle. If it passes a certain amount of time (10-15 seconds) it failsafes and kicks the grounds out.

Try cleaning the grinder out, washing the brew group, and lubing it with the silicone lubricant saeco sells.

If pump does not work then what should i priory

Need more information to solve your problem.

Does the pump come on (do you hear it?) but no water comes out when you make coffee?

When you select Hot Water and open the steam valve, does the pump run and does water come out the steam valve?

If you hear the pump running but no water is coming out - then it could either be that the pump needs to be primed. In that case you would select Hot Water and open the steam valve all the way and let water run out the wand for a minute or two.

If the steam wand delivers water but you don't get any water when you brew coffee, then either the coffee is ground so fine that the water cannot go through the coffee grinds OR the filter disc may be plugged up. Try grinding coarser and try removing the filter disc and cleaning it with a toothbrush - hold the disc to the light and verify that you can see through all the tiny holes.

If it pumps water for coffee but you don't get water out the steam pipe, then the steam wand may be plugged with hardened milk - in that case remove the plastic frother and soak it and clean it. Also use a bent paperclip to clean the hole in the end of the chrome steam pipe.

If the pump doesn't run at all and you don't hear any pump noises ever - then either the pump has failed or has a loose wire.

Check behind the drip tray for coffee grounds. Make sure that your drip tray is locked in. If its not fully locked it, this could be your problem. If everything is removed but the brew unit, grab the handle without pushing the press button, and pull. If the brew unit comes out, it wasn't locked in. Put the drip tray in. Set the brew unit on the drip tray. Now slide the brew unit towards the machine with a little force and see if that locked it in?

Water leaking and coffee dry

Sounds like the boiler is blocked, and machine needs to be descaled. Try this first remove the parnello if your machine has one on the steam wand then using a paperclip clear out the end of the wand, that might be blocked. If it isn't then run the descale to clear out the blockage in the boiler.

Water pump?

If you could brewer coffee or get hot water out of the steam wand then it could be the one way valve on the bottom of the water tank. If you are running the pump output into a glass then it is probably scaled up in the boiler.
