Question about Kenmore Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
I received a kenmore elite espresso maker. I love it! my question is: when i'm done making the espresso and i'm cleaning the machine, is there a way to clean the top filter? sometimes it starts to clog up and when i try to make coffee it pours slowly. what is the correct way to clean that filter? NOT THE FILTER WHERE YOU PUT THE COFFEE IN!!!
i thought maybe if i let it run with just water but that only helps a little. i want to know the right way to really clean it so it won't clog up anymore.
I'm not familiar with this machine but i think most espresso/capuccino machines' brewhead screen (that's what i call the screen your concerned about) are held in place by a screw in the middle. with machine unplugged & cooled down, remove the screw and take out the screen. if the buildup is really bad, you can scrub as much off as possible w/ hot water & soap, then hold it up between your face and a light (see light thru the holes?) any stubborn holes can be cleared with a pen or needle; you may need to wiggle the needle/pen inside each hole to clear it fully; this is time consuming so you may elect to use a decalcifier (i use 1/2 water and 1/2 lemon juice concentrate-pulp-free, in a small container w/ brew-head screen overnight, then scrub real well & wash again next am). hope this helps!
