Question about Dualit 84024 Espresso Machine

Open Question

Steam knob will not turn back to "off " position (closed position

Made a cup of expresso and steamed the milk. Did not remember to turn know clockwise and shut off steam. It just fizzled out. Went to make cup the following morning and could not turn knob to closed position (arrow should be at top when steam valve is closed, but in my case the arrow remains on the right side - open position and will not move).

SOURCE: pavoni, no steam from steam wand

Unplug the machine. just unscrew the nut of the steam shaft. Take out the shaft by turning anti-clockwise the plastic knob until the whole shaft comes out. clean the inside of the attached shaft with a small wire brush. rinse under running water until water comes out the other end. try to straighten the bent shaft (one with the plastic knob) put it all back. The shaft that

SOURCE: steamer function doesn't work properly

We just had the very same issue and I went back to the product directions--we took things apart and thoroughly cleaned everything, especially each part of the sleeve. Once we put it back together we sat it next to the sink and ran it on steam with the water/steam going into the sink until it was running cleanly with a good steady flow. Fixed!! I'm so pleased because we love this machine...I'm totally addicted! Good luck.

SOURCE: The Steam Mechanism Won't Operate

HI Folks, I had the same problem and I have found a solution that worked for me. I took a look at the circuit board (I am an electrical engineer) and I could see an ever so slight buildup on the circuits behind the chips. It looked like some water or steam dripped back there. Then with some effort I was able to peel the circuit board off the glue and wash the back of the board where the solder is with clean water and a gentle brush (all circuit boards are actuall washed after they are made) then I dried it by placing it in the sun. After and hour, I put the board back in and presto the "thumping" and steam were back !. I hope that helps.

Mike.

Delonghi perfecta milk not hot enough


Ummn - something in your Q. seems not right. The milk is not heated directly - its only heated by the steam as it passes by (and picks up) by the milk using a venturi effect - same as a spray bottle attached to a garden hose. You say you have froth - but you can only get that if you have steam... (it does not just blow air thru to create bubbles). So froth = steam & steam = heat... so milk must be hot.
Suggest you check manual for the 'heat' settings for your expresso as this may have been changed. While this is adjustable, the milk is not.

Also always heat your cups before using them - the silver cup 'holder' at the top does a reasonable job but boiling water does far better.
Cheers Mike

ICAPP-4 - A Wiki Manual


Cuisinart ICAPP-4 – Iced Cappucino and Hot Espresso Maker – A Wiki Manual
By Tha Mp3 Doctor (who also loves Cuisinart)

Since I am not well-versed in the copyright laws regarding reprinting copies of standard user’s manuals online, I am writing this Wiki Manual for the ICAPP-4. My unit is 12 years old (in 2009) and continues to run strong through two different owners.
General Directions for Making Iced Cappuccinos
- Place carafe on top of drip/tray grate with handle touching right front of ICAPP – the ice fill lines should be visible when looking at front of unit
- Turn “milk knob” to OPEN position, and open lid of ICAPP
- Remove milk container, espresso collector, espresso spinner cup and cover
- Put espresso collector back in place with two plastic teeth facing front of machine
- There is a stepped fill line inside water reservoir that measures off 1,2, and 4 cups
- Fill water reservoir with either 1,2 or 4 fill line cups – do not overfill to avoid damaging the electronics
- Add espresso grounds to espresso spinner cup
- Line up teeth of spinner cup cover with spinner cup so that the cover locks into place
- Fill milk reservoir with 3 oz of milk per cup of iced cappuccino that you plan to make – there is a fill line that measures off 2 cups or 4 cups
- Fill carafe with either 2 cups worth of ice or 4 cups, depending on how much iced cappuccino you plan to make
- Press down on lid and turn milk knob to HEAT postion
- Turn ICAPP on using the ON/OFF button – it will begin to heat – takes about 5-6 minutes (HEAT light will stay on during this process – doesn’t make noise or steam for several minutes)
- When READY light turns green, turn the milk knob to the DISPENSE MILK position – your espresso and milk will start dispensing
- Unit turns itself off automatically when ready – takes several minutes

What does it mean by 1/3 expresso, 1/3 steam milk and 1/3 frothed milk? 1/3 cup...1/3 teaspoon??????? New to this. what are measurements


i'm sure it is referring to total volume, that being 1/3 of your total is expresso, 1/3 of total volume is steamed milk, etc etc. it is not really a measurement but a ratio of the different components of the drink you are making, example,,, chocolate milk might be 1/4 chocolate and 3/4 milk. if you were making it it would take 1/4 of the "mug" you ar using filled with chocolate, the rest or 3/4 filled with milk. make sense?

Francis francis milk steamer not operating


Steamer tubes can get plugged up with dried milk and/or calified water deposits in the tube.
With the machine unplugged, turn the tube up to check it, Clean it with a small guage wire.
Soak it in a small cup of vinegar, if needed.
Further cleaning, you can add a bit of vinegar to the water and steam it thru...
Let me know how it goes.

Saeco Magic Comfort Plus still producing steam in "off" position.


This may be something you can fix. It depends on your comfort level with mechanical repairs. You probably need to replace some o-rings in the steam valve. Don't keep trying to brew or steam because leaking water or steam inside may cause an electrical short. Decide if you want to delve into the repair, or locate a repair center near you. I could put you in touch with some.

Don't know how to work the steamer.


I have the same Conair Cuisine Ultra expresso maker as you; its an old one. Make sure the coffee grind is in the spoon/filter cup and as the water heats it will brew the expresso. Simply twist the the knob at the top of the silver steam valve stem will let out hot steam for you to frosh the milk.

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 have had this machine for four years now, and it is FAB!!! it does have an extra step to it- after you put in coffee and add water to the reservoir, you DO need to prime the pump. So here's what you have to do:

-Fill the reservoir with MORE water then you think you will need, fill the coffee filter with the standard amount of finely ground bean.
-Turn the machine to "on," making sure the "steam" switch and valve (knob) are off.
-Wait till the green "ready" light comes on, then put an empty cup under the steam wand and turn the valve on (the steam switch is still in the off position). Hot water will come out of the steam wand, allow it to flow until the "ready" light blinks off. Discard this.
-close the steam valve, stopping the flow of water.
-turn the "steam" switch into the on position, wait for ready light to come on again.
-put your milk container under the steam wand and froth to your heart's content (this machine makes GREAT frothed milk and you should use a large enough milk container to allow for that! *smile*)
-when you have finished with the frothing, close the valve and flick the "steam" switch back into the off position. You are now ready to make your espresso.
-push either of the two buttons, ie one or two cups, and the espresso will start to flow. There is a way to set the length of time for each of the two buttons, but I have had mine set perfectly for so long i don't know how to do it any more. Sorry!

This has been the best machine I've ever used, and has lasted me for years. I heartily recommend it!
