Customer Question

The coffee maker says to expel air but no hot water comes out

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! There is air in the system that needs to be released. If it will not release and allow a purge, you likely have a faulty valve. Does it make any noise at all when you attempt to purge the air from the system?

it makes the same noise as when the water comes out

Does the water tank appear to be scaled or plugged at all near the bottom?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
How do check if it is plugged. The unit was taken out of the wall for tile work.
Expert:  Kelly replied 2 years ago.

Usually it will show scale or look visibly dirty. Look at both the tank and the fitting it snaps in to.

I checked the water tank how do you check the valve
Expert:  Kelly replied 2 years ago.

You will only be able to perform a visible inspection. If it looks clean, the valve is probably faulty. I do have the service manual for that model if you would like it. I will caution you, however, that this product is pretty complex and not easy to service.
