Beautiful visual example of the trouble-shooting process, Alan. I'll keep that in mind for if/when my machine starts giving me fits.

Hey Alan-
That's excellent.  I'll have to refer to it, should I ever have any issues (hopefully not).  If my problem doesn't fit the flowchart, I'll drop you an email.  ;-)
Just kidding.
Regards, Matt

Alan, Thats awesome. It's so nice to see someone else think as oddly as I. The flow chart in my head is not as colorful as yours though. Thanks for sharing with us.

Thank you for the chart, very helpful. Does any one know what if the pump is working but the water is coming back to the tank and none is going to the group. I am using a Gaggia Espresso. Thanks.
