SOURCE: No steam on the Dream

Hi,

Initially, pls check for steam leaks. This model has been known to have issues with leaks preventing it from reaching the correct pressure/temperature. Since the leak could be visually checked, it would be a matter of determining at what point/component would the steam be coming out other than designated point. Often, it would be a joint with a rubber seal or a tubing entry point.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: Ascaso, Innova, Dream Heater not working

If you are confident that your heating element is dead and are filling adventurous enough to replace it- you can get one at:

I saved myself shipping and repair costs by having it replaced by a friend. He took pictures and marked wires & connectors before removing the broken heater.
Yeah,, this looks to be systematic failure with this machine. Very disappointing- for this kind of money, one would expect the machine to work a bit longer after warranty expires.

SOURCE: Ascaso Dream water leak & bad shots

Hi
Sounds like you have a leak in the system. If your handy, you can remove the top. Remove everything. Water tank included. Unplug the machine. Now turn the machine upside down on a towel. There are 2 screws behind the brew head. Remove them, then lift the machine off the top and set it right side up. Now you can see the inside of the machine where the boiler is. Do not touch anything inside the machine. Replace everything and plug the machine in. Now turn the machine on and try to make a shot the same way. This should show you where your trouble is. Once you see where the trouble is, unplug the machine. Contact seattlecoffeegear.com, or 1st-line.com. They can help.

SOURCE: Acaso Dream espresso machine no crema

Are you getting enough atmospheric bars of pressure? Should be around 9 or so. if not that may be your problem... also if your portafilter is pressurized (there will be a plastic disc under the screen) try removing it and see if you are getting crema then... Helped alot with mine. I also shaved the bottom to make it bottomless but that may be alot further than you want to go.

If when you switch on the machine and the water is cold then, you should replace the boiler element.
There are a number of ascaso boiler elements, depending on the year. Dream Arc Basic Ellipse Page 2
It it works and you get steam , then the boiler is fine.
It may be that wires are loose inside?

Ascaso dream wand wont heat or steam


You should descale the machine, as you may have a blockage in the steam tap.
When descaling make sure that the descaled water goes through the steam wand as well as the group. JURA descaling tablets

Cant make hot milk or foam ascaso dream the wand doesnt work it just stopped. also my coffee is not hot, only lukewarm ive opened it up and everything looks ok, its all just electrics all of which look...


Hi Mike,
You may have 2 issues.
Steam wand may be blocked;
Try descaling the machine 1st before you do any thing else.

1.Try removing the steam tip, if you don't get steam with tip removed, try removing wand, if you don't get steam then the steam pin may be blocked.

If after descaling coffee is still jst warm you could replace thermostats http://www.bluestarcoffee.eu/ascaso--boiler-thermostats-x-2-193-p.asp

If you still don't have steam after descaling and replacing thermostats then you may need to replace the o rings on steam pin.

Ascaso Dream Leaking Water


Correct, inside the grouphead their is a gasket which is the same diameter as the filterholter which make the perfect fit so the presure of the water will not leak out. So now either the gasket is damage in one point so you have the leak from that point. Second the gasket have become hard so it can not make perfect fit with filter holder. In both above case you have to replace the gasket. Finally their is aposibility that the gasket is dirty with coffee remains and again we can not have a perfect fit. You can use a hard brash with the water running so you can clean the gasket.
With this case you can unsrew also the shower from the grouphead and clean it also for better coffe results
