It is 3/4 years old and I descale it every 6 to 9 months , it was last done in March and has worked beautifully until then.
My son stayed in my house and when I came back yesterday, the tank was full of coffee granules, I gave it a good clear by pressing the right hand button and released dirty water, then I cleaned out the water tank and went to fill it from the top with filtered water and it just spilt all over the unit with no water going into the water tank at all.
I can call you if it would be easier?
