    I have a similar issue with a Barista I just bought; as soon as the machine is turned on, the pump is activated and water flows to the brewhead. The only way to disengage the pump is to activate the steam button. The coffee brew button seems to have no impact whatsoever on the pump and on whether water is flowing to the brewhead. In other words, if power is on + coffee button off + steam button off = pump activated and there is water flow to the brewhead or (if the steam knob is open) water to the steam wand. Conversely, if the power is on + steam button on = no pump activated (no water flow to brewhead, but I can get steam from the steamwand if preheated light is on). I can get water from the steamwand if I disengage the steam button and rotate the steam knob, but otherwise hot water is coming out of the brewhead until I turn it off by turning on the steam button. It's really weird. I have replaced both the steam button and the coffee brew button, and descaled the machine, checked connections, to no avail. T...
