The pump, once the information has been received from the control board, brings the water from the tank to the boiler by passing it through the solenoid valve.
Symptoms of a faulty pump are:
- If your coffee no longer flows or with a low flow
- If your machine makes an unusual noise:
- Discontinuous (noise, nothing, noise…)
- Alternating (oscillating, regular)
- A clicking noise
- No noise at all
The pump is connected to the seat of the water tank. It is inside the device.
The pump in a Magimix coffee maker is a vital component that pushes water through the machine at the correct pressure, ensuring a perfect brew. Over time, the pump can wear out or fail, leading to weak coffee or even a non-functioning machine. Replacing the pump can breathe new life into your appliance. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you replace the pump in your Magimix coffee maker.
- A replacement pump compatible with your Magimix model
- A set of screwdrivers (usually Phillips and flat-head)
- Adjustable wrench or pliers
- Soft cloth or towel
- The user manual for your specific Magimix model (recommended)
Step 1: Turn Off and Unplug the Coffee Maker
Safety first! Always ensure that the coffee maker is turned off and unplugged from the power source.
Step 2: Remove External Components
Remove the drip tray, water tank, and any other external components to create a clear workspace.
Step 3: Open the Outer Casing
Carefully unscrew the outer casing of the coffee machine. Keep the screws in a safe place as you’ll need them later for reassembly.
Step 4: Locate the Pump
The pump is typically located near the water heating element. Consult your user manual to locate it easily within your specific model.
Step 5: Disconnect the Old Pump
Carefully disconnect any hoses, wires, or connections attached to the pump. Use the adjustable wrench or pliers if necessary to loosen tight fittings. Note the connections, or take pictures, so you can reassemble everything correctly later.
Step 6: Remove the Old Pump
Unscrew or unclip the old pump from its mounting position. Keep any brackets, screws, or connectors that you might need for the new pump.
Step 7: Clean the Area
Clean the surrounding area with a soft cloth to remove any residue or debris.
Step 8: Install the New Pump
Align the new pump in the same position as the old one, using the same brackets or housing. Secure it in place with the screws or clips that held the old pump.
Step 9: Reconnect Hoses and Wires
Reconnect the hoses, wires, and other connections to the new pump, following your previous notes or pictures to ensure proper reassembly.
Step 10: Reassemble the Coffee Maker
Carefully replace the outer casing, aligning it correctly with the internal components. Replace and tighten all screws.
Step 11: Replace External Components
Reattach any external components like the drip tray and water tank.
Step 12: Test the Coffee Maker
Plug in the coffee maker, turn it on, and run a test brew. Check for proper water flow and pressure, and ensure that there are no leaks or other issues.
Replacing the pump in a Magimix coffee maker is a manageable task for those with some DIY experience, but it requires careful attention to detail. The specific process might vary slightly depending on the model, so it is highly recommended to refer to the user manual for your particular machine.
