I have had a Breville BES860XL espresso machine for about 2

I have had a Breville BES860XL espresso machine for about 2 weeks and loved it. I then tried to change the beans to decaf. I emptied the hopper of the regular beans and then was finally able to get the outer burr off to empty the burr grinder of the beans. I tried to replace the outer burr, but couldn't get it locked (I later discovered that it needed cleaning so it could sit down all the way). I replaced the hopper and tried to grind the decaf. It ground the beans very coarsely and the hopper and outer burr would stuck very tightly (jammed I would say). I thought I would never get the hopper and outer burr off. I had to get a skewer to reach inside to get the outer burr to move so I could remove the hopper and outer burr. I cleaned everything and put it all back together easily. However, now the grind wheel adjustment does not seem to make any difference in the grind. I don't see any damage to the wheel or burr, but am afraid I damaged something by not locking the outer burr down before trying to grind. Is something else going on here or have I messed up my expensive machine?

francisfrancis x5 espresso machine

francisfrancis x5 espresso machine, about 2 years old no longer makes espresso...nothing at all comes out of the dispenser. The steamer works and the boiler is heating up the water but when I press the button for espresso nothing happens. I think the temperature button is flashing slowly when the espresso button is out (the ON position) but I'm not sure that means anything. Update...I tried it again. Now no steam and no coffee. Either the pump is dead or there is air trapped (I'm no expert, though). I took the tip off the inlet hose, pushed it up through the hole in the body (with the top off) and poured water in the hose. I now have a 4" column of water in the hose (hose is standing straight up) with (apparently) air in the hose holding it up. When I turn on the pump it makes noise but the water column doesn't move. I opened the steam valve while the pump was on but the water in the hose still did not move. I think the steam that it made on the first try was old water. It hasn't been used in at least 2 years. Now the chamber is empty and new water won't go in.
