Tip & How-To about Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines

Espresso/coffee not coming out

If you are having a problem with your espresso/coffee machine with water coming out of the nozzle of your espresso/coffee machine or there is a smaller amount of water then usual that you notice coming out of the nozzle area, locate a pin or a sewing needle and clean the nozzle head with the pin or sewing needle. This actually happens due mostly to the grind level of the beans that most people have there unit set on. When you first get your machine there are actually no problems grinding your beans to the finest setting but as time goes on these small grinds end up building up and eventually clogging the nozzle head due to the fineness of the grind and the oil that is found in coffee beans. This also may require more then one cleaning with the pin or sewing needle on the nozzle head depending on how fine the grinds are that you use in your machine. All espresso/coffee machines should have this done often especially if you are used to a finely ground coffee. The simpler solution would be to turn down the grind setting but preferably more people set there unit to the highest grind setting thinking there will be a difference in the taste or strength or robustness of the coffee or espresso. If the beans are not ground at the maximum setting by turning the fineness of the grind down you not only save yourself the amount of time to clean the nozzle head with a pin or needle. You also prevent clogs of this finely ground amount of coffee from backing up in your water path within the unit as well. If the fine grounds are not removed in this manner eventually you can cause damage to the machines water pump as well.

the coffee is not coming out of the coffee spout


I had a similar problem. I always religiously cleaned the machine when prompted but nonetheless I reached a point where coffee quit coming out of one nozzle. I tried the suggestion to stick a wire up the nozzle to dislodge any residue that was blocking the water. That helped a little and then it did not next time. So I USED A DENTAL WATER PICK on both nozzles and that cleared up the problem completely. MUCH BETTER than wire or paperclip.

water coming out of steam nozzle not coffee output when making coffee


Sounds to me there might be a blockage on the brew unit, and since the pressure is so high it is going through the bypass. Clean the screen and tubes on the brew unit.
