Is the Water light continuously blinking?

  • Ensure water is in the Water Tank and ensure Water Tank is properly assembled.
  • Check to make sure the Steam Wand is not blocked. Please remove it from Espresso Machine and thoroughly clean it.
  • The coffee puck is too dense; adjust to a larger grind size. If using a Double-wall basket, clean the exit hole with a pin.
