Steam Trickles Since Descaling

Since a descaling activity (have done in the past with success) steam trickles out vs. how it performed previously. Even if I take off the wand and just observe what comes from the base pipe coming from the core housing, the pressure is minimal.

The machine is blocked at the location where the steam valve sits on the boiler with the 2 screws. You will need to get a new gasket before you dismantle this part, just in case it is always prudent to replace it, here is the part number GA-DM0041/088.

Hi There, If your ascaso steel duo is not producing steam,
Could be that:
The thermoblock may be blocked - Try descaling.
JURA descaling tablets
Steam wand may be blocked - try removing steam nozzle/steam wand and submerge in hot soapy water.

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.

My steamer wand has an awful odor everytime I try to steam something! I have cleaned it (even soaked in baking soda!) and the problem won't stop. Anyone else have this problem?


This is a common problem for the commercial espresso machines, Due to lack of cleaning of the steam wand after they finish frothing milk.
The milk flows back to the boiler and the water gets contaminated with milk.

Does the steam smells like rotten milk? If the answer is yes, you have contaminated water and or lines.
If not may be there is a lot of IRON in the water.

Run a descale cycle.

After you are done frothing milk, wipe the steam wand with a wet towel and open the steam valve for 2 seconds, close it and that's it.

Why won't my starbucks serina froth milk. Just stopped doing this all of a sudden. I descaled, the little hole in wand isn't blocked. The milk heats but no froth.


This problem developed on my Sirena machine about a week ago. Stopped frothing milk, but still produced lots of steam. In fact, it was splattering milk everywhere, just not producing foam. Cleaned the steam wand (including air intake) and descaled the machine (even though its only 3 months old) to no avail. Called Saeco customer support (1-800-933-7876) and the very helpful rep immediately identified the problem. Inside the Panarello steam wand is a removable plastic tube. The tip of this tube should protrude about 1/8" beyond the end of the steam wand. Mine was not. Using the eraser end of a pencil, I pushed the inner tube downward into position and, voila, I now have froth again.

Using the menu go to the descale function the add solution to tank and place a large container under steam spout and open knob. You can also use the manual way, check notes below.
