I wish i would have checked the needle first because that is where mine was clogged...then i wouldn't have had to do all those steps...but the instructions here were very good..thank you...

For me too the problem was that the needle that punctures the pod was clogged. Maybe add to check that first and avoid taking everything apart. Great instructions though.

This helped a lot. I used a large syringe. We used to raise birds & had a variety of sizes. Put the syringe on the tube & pulled several times.Seemed to free any clog at the very bottom. Put back together & it's working now.but I notice sprinkles of water as is heats up now. Just need to figure what could be causing this.
