Rancilio steam wand loose not working

The rig wand on our commercial rancilio does not work suddenly. The knob continues spinning to no effect. The wand is now cold though the attachment piece inside the machine is still hot. Is there an easy fix? What are potential problems?

Rig wand! you mean steam wand?
Take lid off and see if the knob clib connection to the steam valve is come out. Otherwise, possibly the steam valve's portioning washer is hardened and stuck. BUt sound slike shaft is broken or lost connection to the valve

SOURCE: Steam knob is stuck in "open" position

I have the same problem. I also can't turn the shaft with pliers. If anybody has any advice I'd appreciate it.

SOURCE: water will not come through the steam wand

I had the same problem. I took the steam wand off, and checked for steam out of the unit. It was OK, so I stuck a thin wire up through the steam wand and dislodged what look like pieces of a green washer or O-ring.
In short...the wand was plugged.

SOURCE: leaking steam valve rancilio miss audrey

you should take out the knob first, than you try to disasembke the SHAFT of valve from the valve body, in this types(small espresso coffe machines) usualy producer use conical valve, without seals she close metal to metal, when you get out the SHAFT you will see one line on the conical end. for repairing it will be enough to visit one metal vorkery where they will take a small amount of brass from end and polish it. then you put it back and work again with your machine.

ps: notice you only polish the SHAFT , dont let them to short the more than 0.5 mm

I have a rancilio epoca 1group. After I turn the steam wand off it keeps steaming. Would it need a new valve?


Hi Daren,
You could replace the whole steam valve wand but you don't need to.
The rubber grommet inside the steam valve is worn out and the tap wont close properly - that is why the steam is coming out.
You will find these parts with a commercial rancilio supplier.

Not getting a good/any froth. (Rancilio Silvia) My steam wand leaks air at the tip so I bought a new one and replaced that, it still leaks air. I don't want to tighten it too much so I won't crack it....


If steam wand leaks at the tip sounds like the steam valve needs to be rebuilt or replaced, because the valve seat is damaged or has mineral buildup keeping it open.

How do I put the steam wand back in?...I removed it to clean and can't get it back in place?


Hi
There is a receptacle below the steam knob underneath. There are 2 o-rings in the receptacle or on the wand. Insert the wand into the receptacle, then screw the nut on until its tight. The wand should swivel.

The steam function has stopped working, I regularly descale, but it just stopped working all of a sudden. Any ideas how to fix it?


Try this, using a paper clip make sure that the end of the wand is not clogged. If not then open steam wand and then push the knob in, if that works then the valve stem needs to be replaced, if it doesn't, can you get hot water from the valve, if yes then the thermostat or the element on the steam booster boiler is damaged.

No water ever makes it through the pump


You have to prime the pump.. Hit the water button and open the steam knob.

If no water goes through the steam wand I would check for a clogged water line.
