Why won’t my espresso machine prime correctly?

Check the following possibilities:

The water tank reservoir is empty.

The machine is not plugged in or turned on.

The intake hose is crimped or obstructed.

The brew head screen is dirty. (Clean it following instructions.)

The machine is vapor-locked. (Please see the instructions in the next question.)
