No water comes out of the coffee nozzle!
Please make sure that there is always a coffee capsule inserted into the machine (older models require the green cleaning capsule), otherwise the water will run into the drainer and not through the coffee nozzle, (with the exception of the STILISTA, Chic, Smart capsule machine).
Coffee/Water is cold!
Make sure that your machine is preheated. If all the lights illuminate in blue (green lights on older models), you can start to prepare your coffee.
There is water under the machine!
Make sure that the water tank has been correctly inserted. When inserting the water tank, there may still be some residual water at the connection or in the pipe, which will be pushed out as soon as the water tank is inserted.
