Question about FrancisFrancis! X1 - Stainless Steel Espresso Machine
Its when its heating up and especially when its brewing. I can;t get the knob any tighter.
The problem is with the two O ring which are on the steam knob srew. So you need to disasemble the steam knob srew by turning it all the way reverse. On the srew axis you will find two O rings which must replace. You can fint easy replacements O ring from DIY shop they usuly have O ring kits with diferent sizes so take one with youto match it with that of the shop.

I soak the steamer tip in flat cola overnight to clean out milk deposits. Run water, not steam through it after that to rinse.
Sometimes I need to use a toothpick to lift off the softened deposits.

HI Unscrew the chrome tip from the wand. Then check the wand tube for a plug. Insert a paper clip into the wand tip to see if there is a restriction.
