Question about Starbucks Saeco Italia Digital Barista Coffee Machine

1 Answer

Steamer won't steam

The display panel says the steamer is ready, but it doesn't steam. I inherited this unit, and have somewhat learned how to use it. I just may not know how to make it steam. I have no instruction book. Could you give me step by step instructions? If they have a problem, maybe a solution that's easy. Tks. Pam

My expresso machine won't steam. Just suddenly stopped. Have tried running vinegar through system, but still won't run through steamer.


Hi, I dont know which brand machine you have, but I should be able to work out what is wrong. If your machine has a press button or turn knob steam tap, then it could be the solenoid which opens the steam flow. The solenoid itself maybe stuck or the coil maybe faulty. You just need to work back from the steam arm to work out which solenoid it is. It should make a clicking sound when activated. Commercial machine solenoids canbe disassembled and cleaned. If its a domestic machine, then just replace the solenoid. Also, some machines have a micro switch that activates the steam valve. If its faulty, then replace it.
If its a domestic machine you have, then another thing that maybe at fault, and that is the thermoblock (small boiler). If it doesn't heat up then no steam canbe made. The thermoblock has an element inside, and they can not be replaced. You have to replace the whole thermoblock. It can be easily checked with a multi meter to see if the circuit is broken. On some thermoblocks, is a thermostat or overload sensor. It is also easily checked with a meter.
So lets break it down a) solenid
b) micro switch
c) Thermoblock
d) thermostat/ thermol overload
Hope this has help you. Id be looking towards the thermoblock. Dazza

Steam building up within the unit/


The steam pipe after the steam solenoid to the steam arm is leaking which it can be cause just becase the support nut is loose. So if you just remove the top plastic panel you can even use the machine and see which point need to tight it up.
Good luck.

I have a Gaggia Syncrony Compact Digital, almost 2 years old, recently the digital display has been fading and today once i turn the steamer off, it still steams at a slow pace and evenutally it stoped,...


The steam valve has been leaking on the inside for awhile, the steam condensed on the display board. You will have to replace the steam valve assembly and maybe the display board.

Too much water coming out of steam wand


I worked at StarBucks, what we did was put water into a contaner and steam the water, a lot of the time why the steamer doesn'..t work as well is because it is clogged. Another way to do it is to just run your steamer, also go to a coffee store and buy expresso machine cleaner. It could just need a good cleaning.

Steamer on gaggia titanium


a. Possible air in the system. Switch to hot water iso steam, let warm water pas for a minute by turning the knob fully open. Stop tapping warm water (close the knob) and switch the machine to steam iso water. Try to get the steam by fully opening the knob (pump should start running). 
b. Solidified milk in the system blocking internal tubes. To avoid this always purge the system (shortly open the steam to an empty cup or a towel) after you steamed milk to avoid milk being sucked back into the system due to condensation of steam (this creates a vacuum and reverse flow). To resolve the blocked tubing: clean the nozzle and try flushing the system (tapping warm water).

I hear you!! I found that you have to press the green steam light (left side) TWICE before steam is ready. After your second press, the machine will make pumping noise, then all lights will come on. From that point, the cappucino/latte steamer will work as manual describes.

Water won't flow through the tubes


You might need to prime the pump manually since the machine has been moved.
directions:
Fill water tank.
Turn power on.
Open the steam knob all the way.
Press the coffee button.
Put a cup under the steam pump wand.
Wait until you see a steady flow of water and no air.
When you see the flow of water, close the steam knob.
Turn off the coffee button.
Now the machine should be ready to brew an espresso.
If that does not work you can contact the service center for more suggestions:
