Water spewing out of the steam pipe on my Starbucks Barista

As soon as my Starbucks Barista warms up is starts to spew water out of the steam pipe and I cannot shut it off.

    Our steamer at the Saeco Odea isn't tight any more. Tried descaling, but that didn't help. Meanwhile I got so bad, the machine doesn't get any water for the espresso any more because it all flows out of the steamer.

I have a starbucks barista athena that has a vapor lock. How do I fix this?


It's easy to break the vaporlock on an Athena.

  1. Power the machine off and let it cool (20-30 minutes is plenty)
  2. Place a mug under the steam wand and open the steam valve all the way. If there's residual pressure, let it release the pressure before proceeding
  3. Power on the machine and wait for a steady stream of water from the steam wand.
  4. Close the steam valve and you should be good to go!

Starbucks Barista (Saeco) Espresso machine Quit pumping


Hi
If it makes a noise when you turn the brew switch on you may have a blockage in the out let line. If it doesn't make a noise but every so often you may have a bad pump.

Not brewing shots, just spewing water out the top!!!


Yup, it sounds like you have a leak !  When the spoon is locked in place, the coffee is preventing (blocking) the water from flowing freely, and it simply finds an easier path, through a hole or loose fitting above the spoon... Depending upon your skill level, you may want to have a look inside the machine and you should be able to see where the leak is.  If it's a hole in a pipe/tube, the pipe/tube will probably need to be replaced (maybe it can be repaired...), and if it's a loose fitting, you can try to tighten it.  It might have come loose due to the vibrations from the pump. Another possibility is that you have a lot of scale built up in the system.  If you've never descaled your machine, you should do so regularly using coffee machine descaler or "CLR" available at hardware stores.  If you've ownded your machine for a while and never descaled it before, run the descaler 4 or 5 times to give it a good cleaning and then do so according to the instructions (I do mine every couple of months but I don't use my machine every day).  If you use unfiltered tap water, the scale will build up more quickly, specially if your local water is "hard".  Consider using filtered water to reduce the buildup of scale.

No water flowing through steam wand


You might want to try draining the machine and filling it back up. There could be a number of different things wrong with your machine.

Water leakes over the top of my rapporto filter


I forgot to mention in my earlier post, to also check the brew head gasket, use your tool to clean the grounds out of the gasket, it can cause the filter to not seat properly.
Remove the filter, and insert the gasket cleaner tool.
Twist the tool (the cup looking thing with the phillips head attachment on it) with the notches up into the gasket, twist back and forth until you get as much grounds out as possible. Then clean the gasket with a warm wet cloth until no residue shows on your cloth. Do this cleaning every couple weeks if you use the machine a lot.
Also be sure to run a brew cycle thru an empty filter after the last use for the day. This really keeps evrything clean in your filter and shower screen.

Barista Zia Espresso Machine


file:///Users/Julie/Downloads/Barista_Final_011305.pdf

I had the same problem. The Barista Zia is the same as the Barista Athena on the inside, the only diffrence between the two is the plastic shell on the Zia, and the steaming wand is on the opposite side. This is the instruction manuel for the barista athena, so its basically the same. Thanks! good luck!

Sounds like you might need to clean the unit. Starbucks sells the powder to mix in and run through it.

Super espresso machine leaking


Hi
Your steam manifold needs to be replaced. I still have the original in mine but if you don't cool them down after steaming they will develop hair line cracks and leak after while. To cool it down after steaming push the steam button again, then open the knob and run it till you have a steady stream of water, then close the knob.
The replacement manifolds are black and have held up very well but they have a brass manifold re[placement but you will need new mounting hardware.
