Question about FrancisFrancis! X1 Espresso Machine
Can you help us with a blocked steamer nozzle on the above model ?
I had the same problem on an X5 model, eventually we realized that you we could unscrew the entire nozzel fairly easily (not just the little steam attachment on the end). Once we'd done this, it was easy to soak the entire nozzel in hot soapy water. I then used a needle and dental floss to get the entire thing clean inside. Not very technical, but it worked for me. Worth a try if you haven't already sorted this.

Pour in a solution of 50% distilled white vinegar and 50 % water. Set the steam wand knob to a water setting, and run the solution through there. I would suggest letting a small amount of the vinegar/water solution drip out, then cut the machine off for about 20 minutes - allowing the vinegar to thoroughly soak and decalcify the insides. After 20 minutes, let the remaining vinegar/water pour through.
