When I got it home, I opened it up and removed a few dead spiders, but everything looked intact and in reasonable condition. I filled up the water tank, flicked the power on and heard the pump click on to prime the boiler.
So far so good.
Next up, I flicked the brew button. Again the pump sounded for a short while but then suddenly cut out. Nothing coming from the brew head...
