Not enough/no pasta is coming out of my Philips pasta maker
In the unfortunate event that no pasta coming out, too much leftover dough stays inside or the mixing paddle of your pasta maker is running idle, please find here how to solve it.
The flour/water ratio might be incorrect
Check the flour / water ratio: There might be differences regarding flour from country to country. If you are using whole-wheat flour, add another 5ml of liquid.
When the water flour ratio is correct, the consistency of the dough should be crumbly and appear rather dry. This consistency is needed in order for the extrusion forces to turn the dough in the perfect pasta dough.
Please see the right dough consistency in the following image:
Too much water was used
If you used too much water, disconnect the plug from the power source and discard dough; clean the pasta maker and follow the user manual to restart the pasta making process.
If the dough looks like this, you added too much water:
The amount of flour is incorrect
Make sure you are following the recipe by using a kitchen scale or supplied flour cup.
Liquid was poured too fast
Pour liquid slowly into the device for best results.
Some dough is left inside the chamber
If only some dough remains inside your pasta maker’s mixing chamber, please put it directly on the mixing paddle with a kitchen tool and start the extrusion only program.
In order to use this program, you need to press the extrusion-only button, and press the start/pause for extra extrusion. The program will take 3 minutes to be completed.
