I had the same issue without having touched the unit. Somewhere a great comment said they had turned the machine upside down to see how to take it apart and when they turned it back the flip top worked once again! Well this worked for me! I also saw where this helped to align the screws holes too - although I never took any screws out from under the "lid" or anywhere. Here is what I did:
1


1
) Take the water tank out/off;
2


2
) Turn it totally upside down (about 1 - 2 ounces of water dripped out - so I did over the sink);
3


3
) I cycled the flip lid back and forth and could hear and feel some rough spots but cyclecycled it 3 or 4 timetimes making sure I went full open then full closed; closed. I could hear that something "clicked";

4) I did not have to push especially hard but after I could tell things had at least been convinced to move and it would close fully (e.g., brew mode) unlike when I started.
 
When I turned it over it was working again. No more having to hold my finger on the lid to to brew. I hope this works so easily for you!
