Need to replace steam valve in Starbucks Sirena Espresso Maker

How do I replace the steam/froth valve in my Starbucks Sirena and where can I get the parts?I know how to open the unit to get to the valve but don't want to try going any further without good direction. I've searched the web to no avail and haven't had a chance to contact Saeco directly yet.
Any and all help greatly appreciated. Thanks

    I want to replace it because it simply broke! I could feel a "snap" in the valve during the last use and now the knob is completely loose and wiggly all the way into the valve body. Also, when you try to use the steam feature it now just spits steam for about 3 seconds on the initial try then is completely inoperable. I would expect it to leak now during use but it does not.

Check out espresso parts dot com. check out the saeco website, or do a google search for a schematic/parts exploded view. should be just your basic wrench-twiddling to replace. good luck!

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.

Water Leaks from the head gasket while heating up to use steam


This is a result of the water temperature in the boiler increasing, thereby expelling water that may remain in the lines out of their respective exit points. A solution may be to place a container under the group head to catch the water, or opening the steam valve partially to allow the water to exit through the steam wand (again placing a vessel/cup/pitcher there to catch the water). This is a problem that even higher end (dual-boiler) models have, due to the necessary purging of water that accumulates in the steam wand during down-time.
Don't look at it as a problem, but simply as a quirk that single-boiler machines have. If you are still irked by the issue, consider buying an inexpensive manual frother (Bodum makes these) to froth and heat your milk (in the microwave after frothing) separately. An added plus is that you can do this while you make your espresso, so if you make primarily milk-based drinks (latte, capps etc.) you'll save on time.

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.

Starbucks sirena lights won't turn on


Just had this happen. Finally I let water run through the steam wand (thought it had to heat up first). Water ran through (until blue light stopped blinking) and now the other lights are blinking...we will see if it works now.
