Espresso: jura x90

I recently purchased a reconditioned jura x90 impressa. this is my first espresso machine. I have a catering business and thought I could use this at my deli as well as offsite events.....This unit seems to brew a weak espresso as well as a separated espresso. Separated by having 2 or 3 tones of colors and trailing colors when I hold it to a light.  

Now the machine won't work. It grinds and goes through a brew cycle but does not deliver any coffee. It gets rid of the grinds each time and they are dry. yes, there is water in the machine. Says fill system, press steam

Any advise??  Please.

i've been using the same machine over 2-years now.  once a while, it has its own mind but i try the following;
- make sure the pump sounds right (if it sound working empty, check the valve under the water tank)
- take plentiful of water from hot water sprout, at least 3cups
- run the steam for a while (if working)
- set grinding setting to coarse
- change strength to low from menu
- fool the machine by taking the tray out and shutting it off when signalling 'tray missing message'
one or more of these works for me...

good luck

Thanks,sbcfoods

I own 8 jura machines.  I have been using the machines mainly for business, and also have one in the office.  They make good coffee.  You have to set it up properly though (grinding, coffee amount, water etc.)  If you are used to the manual machines, you might think the steam is not enough which is true in a sense.  Frothed milk may not reach to the desired temperatures.

Other than that they are reliable and good coffee machines, in my experience.

PS: try taking the water filter out (if you are using one)

I know this post is quite old now but was wondering the following:

- make sure the pump sounds right (if it sound working empty, check the valve under the water tank)
- take plentiful of water from hot water sprout, at least 3cups
- run the steam for a while (if working)
- set grinding setting to coarse
- change strength to low from menu
- fool the machine by taking the tray out and shutting it off when signalling 'tray missing message'
one or more of these works for me...

Do you:
  1.  Leave the grind in coarse or move to coarse (run) and then set fine again
  2.  How to you change to LOW from the Menu?
  3.  Taking out tray - Turn off when signalling 'Tray Missing'; then put back in and turn on?

Just curious - Thanks!
