How about giving the logic board in your machine a nice rest, say overnight. Let it sleep with the plug pulled out until morning. That should clear any logic errors. In the morning...see what happens.

SOURCE: water leaking from steam wand when brewing shots

Try this from another post. It should help.

The steam wand began to seriously leak but a call to Starbucks Customer Service line and I was talked through how to adjust it so that the leaking stopped. It requires taking off the top/back panel of the machine (6 philips screws) then using a small allen key (1.5 mm I believe) to loosen and adjust a plastic oblong donut-shaped thing (a "cam" actually) on the shaft of the steam knob... no more drips.
The key to prevent dripping is to open the steam knob without putting pressure on it when it gets to the full-open stop position. Cranking it too hard when it comes to a stop in the full-open position will slowly move the cam out of position. Then the shaft doesn't fully seat inside the machine anymore and won't fully shut off the water to the steam wand. Then, no matter how hard you crank the knob in the shut-off position it will still drip. The purpose of the cam is to stop the knob from complete unscrewing and it also turns the pump on and off for the steam wand. The cam adjustment is very small but completely solves the dripping problem. Seeing inside the machine made me realize how easy it would be to repair problems as long as I can get the parts from Starbucks or perhaps Saeco.

SOURCE: Starbuck's Barista steam wand leak

remove the cover from the machine, loosen the allen screw that fastens the steam knob to the shaft, move it slightly and retighten to allow the knob to close the valve a bit more. I have had to do this a few times in the 9 years I've had my machine as either the knob loosens or the valve threads wear a bit.

SOURCE: Lavazza point espresso machine no steam

Sounds like a clogged steam pipe or a jammed two-way valve. First, I would try unfolding a small paper clip and then stick it up the spout of the steam pipe. if this does not free up the steaming arm then it is most likely a clogged two way valve. Should you need service you can call 781-393-2929. we are an authorized lavazza distributor and service center

What is the difference between espresso and coffee?


All espresso is coffee, but not all coffee is espresso. Espresso is a term used to describe a way of preparing coffee.
Coffee is a drink made from the roasted seeds of a Coffea plant. Espresso is made by pushing a shot of hot water at high pressure through very finely ground coffee

Double shot won't work, single does


Try using without the portafilter, if it works then the problem is in the grind or the pressure used to tamp the coffee.

The coffee maker doesn't work - all the lights, timer, on/off switch, etc., seem to be working, but the water doesn't pour through the grounds to make the coffee


Does it make steam or can you hear the water boiling? Try and pour 4 cups of vinegar or lime away in it if it is clogged or plugged up from lme or mineral deposits, if it not getting hot( you can tell very easily by seeing if the plate the pot sits on is getting hot) then the thermocouple or heating element is shot.

Making Espresso shots... how does the macine do this? Not in man


www.partsguru.com look to the left for Saeco Home Models, select that, then go the model you have and download the manual.

On a magic comfort it has two settings for adjusting the espresso shot besides the amount of the shot. .

On a magic comfort plus,
you can adjust the grind size, the amount used for the shot, preinfusion (a short shot of hot water on the grinds before the unit passes all the water through the puck (coffee grinds), temperature and amount of water for shot

Also, when setting the strength on this machine, don't use a full grind amount as it can jam the machine. use a setting of 6 or 7 max for strong shots, not the 8 or 9 setting!!!

Water flow


You will have to adjust your shot timing, and possibly your grind. To program the shot timing, hold the Brew Stop button until all of the brew lights come on; That means all of the buttons are ready to program. Next, pull some grind for your portafilter and push the button you want to program. For a single, you want to pull a 1 oz shot in about 15-20 seconds; longer for a double. When you push the button, the shot will start to pull; when the shot is complete, push the button again to set it. Then do the same for the next button. Each group needs to be programed separately. Holding the the Brew Stop button again will turn out the remaining lights and save your programming to that point. As to the grind, you want to have the grind fine enough to give you a quality shot in the right amount of time. Good Luck!
