Hi
Have you ever descaled your machine. This will clean out scale build up where the seal is and allow it to seat again. Use starbucks descaler( make sure that it is desolved), or Durgol. Run about 8 ozs through your machine steam wand, then turn it off and let it set for about 10 minutes. Then turn it on and let it warm up. then brew without your portifilter. and let it set. repeat until the tank is empty.

Coffee comes out fine, wont deliver milk or hot water from spout


Sounds like milk steam apparatus is clogged. Try to disassemble this portion and clean thoroughly. Descaling will not help this section.

Leaking from pod holder


I had the same exact problem and my machine started to smell even though I descaled it regularly and cleaned any of the milk that dripped out of the capsule. Finally, we took apart the whole machine and found a TON of dried, rotten milk. It was disgusting. We completely cleaned the accessible part of the machine with a vinegar solution and put it back together. I was hoping that we fixed whatever was causing the leaking, but no such luck. It is still leaking and still smells bad, so we are going to get a different kind of machine. I will not be getting a Dolce Gusto again, because I have called their customer service multiple times about this problem, and none of them ever had a solution. The whole milk thing grosses me out, I think I'll just get a single serve coffee machine and foam the milk myself.

Ascaso Dream steam wand leak


Hi Emily,
You have 2 issues.
Steam wand leaking while making coffee - This indicates that the seals on the steam tap o rings need replacing.
Coffee pouring over the handle when making coffee - this indicates that the group gasket needs replacing.

Replacing the group gasket is easy takes 10 min
Replacing the o rings on the steam tap may take a little longer..
All you need is a group service kit Ascaso gasket kit Dream Arc Basic

How do you use model 40715 hamilton beach espresso machine? i couldnt get the loose grinds to work so i bought espresso pods and now i dont know how long to wait for it to drip or if im even doing it...


I have this machine and have used it for about a year. Most important is use fresh beans within 15 days of roast, and within 15 minutes of grinding. You cannot get good results from this machine using pre ground coffee, or pods. Second, this machine is terrible with temperature stability. When warmed up it will usually be way too hot. Wait for the machine to warm up (light will come on). Open the steam valve, run the brew pump for 5 to 10 seconds into your cup and turn it off. Shut the steam valve, wait for the light to come back on. Immediately hit the brew button. This procedure will do a nice cooling flush and hit more towards the right temp.
Third, the pressurized basket that comes with this machine just dosen't do the job right. Replace it with a Mr. Coffee double basket, non pressurized and you will see immediately better results.
Last, the screeching steam wand. This machine will give wet steam, all the time. After pulling the shot, hit the steam switch and wait 20-30 seconds, then open the steam valve full to purge water out of the wand. Close the valve, then go to steaming your milk. There is a place about 1/4 inch below the surface that you'll hear only a chhh-chhh sound. Wand too deep, it will screech and wake the neighbors. Too shallow and you'll get sudsy big bubbles. Just find that sweet spot and surf there till you're at 140-150 degrees then turn the valve off. Good luck.

Not enough steam is produced to make good froth.


I have one too and what I do is: turn all 3 switches on and while I'm waiting for the "ready" light to come on I go ahead and pour the milk into my frothing pitcher and prep my espresso basket.
After the "ready" light comes on I install my espresso basket and turn the handle to the "left" so no liquid starts coming out.
Next, I take an empty coffee cup and hold it under the steam nozzle and start opening the steam valve until I get only steam instead of a stream of hot water. Once you have steam, close the valve, put your pitcher of milk under the steamer and froth as usual to around 150 degrees.

Leaking water from steamer


For the grouphead check the basket there might be a slight bump around the edge that is preventing it from making a good seal when it contacts the gasket in the head. If the Double works fine then the gasket is not the problem.
For the steam wand try flushing wand for 3 seconds just before steaming, if that does not help with the watery milk, then the boiler is not getting hot enough to produce steam.

Not frothing milk


that means that the steamer is not generating enough pressure steam.

This happens either because there is not enough heat, or if you release the steam when pressure is not enough.

Very common problem with the american maid makers.

bear also in mind that Krups are not the best at frothing milk, and this is also a basic model.

If you want the best capuccino Coffee machine, buy the italian ones, Gaggia, Delonghi, Ariete etc. that are all great at this, or get a bigger Krups as a replacement like the Krups XP405040 that is also good at capuccino

Problems with Briel Espresso Maker


First all of your water drips out and then steam comes out the brewhead. (usually only when you select steam to froth milk) This leaves a very limited amount of steam to froth milk with and makes a mess. While it may be too late to help you, I have three machines that are doing the same thing. There is a checkball and spring assembly in the boiler section called the "aqua stop" that is leaking by. (it gets gunked up with minerals) I pulled one machine apart and had to destroy it to get the "aqua stop" assembly apart. It may be easier to buy a new boiler for $80 (cheaper than new) but I cannot remember the website I found to buy the boiler. A good clean and soak with vinegar (possibly more than once) may work to dissolve the mineral buildup. Good luck.
