Faema S-87 Spouts copious amounts of water from the top
My Faema has been serviced several times. However, we are at an impasse. My machine will work for about a day before it decides to spit unusual amounts of water from a valve on the boiler. I left the machine on over night and it flooded my building. Neither he nor I know what to do--- is my machine possessed???

Are you installing a new element or do you need to get a new one make sure you get an element gasket as well. Element is on right side of machine. Drain water 14mm plug under boiler. There are 4 wires on element two labeled 3, and one labeled 1, the other labeled 2. Element has 4 coils in two loops, top loop and bottom loop. 1 on top loop 2 on bottom loop the 3's on the other side.
As the coffee is
dispensed, it is normal to have some residue left in the tubing and spouts. It
is the reason that the machine will require cleaning on a regular basis using
the Jura tablets that dissolves the coffee film. In the case the spouts get clogged, the
best approach would be to dismantle the spout assembly. Since it may not always
be possible, I found that filling a cup with a coffee cleaning solution such as
Puly Cleaner (pulycleaner.co.uk) and having the spout dip in the solution
overnight can help. Probably that dissolving a Jura cleaning tablet in a cup of
warm water would provide similar cleaning power.
Dismantling the spout is
rather straightforward. You start with removing the front logo by rotating it
counter-clockwise. Behind it you will find a T15 Torx screw. Removing it will allow
removal of spout cover by pulling the top part lightly towards you and then
sliding it down below the spouts. Grab the spouts by the sides and wiggle
downwards until it comes loose. You can now clean the spouts but will most
likely need to soak it. See the video showing removal of the spouts @ youtu.be/9QlRGY0eX3s
Check the knob setting, there is 1-0-2, make sure machine is turned to #2. I will assume that there is water in the boiler, check sight glass. If machine has been turned to #2 and after 10 minutes there is still no heat, check by running the group and testing water. then the hi-limit switch tripped and needs to be reset, if you remove the 8 screws on the top panel and look between the groups you will notice a red push knob in a rectangular box with 6 wires and a silver tube coming to it. Push in red pin, then turn machine to #2.
I might be able to help you repair it. First I need the model of the machine is it a DUE/A or a Special 87. Next check the steam wand tip to make sure it is not blocked, if not blocked, you might have to remove the top panel, if it is a due there are 8 screws on the top if it is a special 87 there might only be 4 or a series of panels. Turn off machine and disconnect from power. Then follow pipe from steam valve to boiler, remove the pipe you will notice blockage either in the pipe or at the boiler fitting, clear blockage. For the group heads I would check the screens make sure there is no damage, and check the grind on the coffee grinder that might be too coarse.
remove the top panel or front panel. Make sure there is water in the machine, and it is in the 0 position. Press the red reset switch, the turn the machine to 1, wait until boiler fills then turn to 2. If after machine fills at position 1 and you turn it to 2 and 1m minutes later there is no heat then your elements could be damaged.
The machine can sack the water directly from a water tank since the water inlet hose is conected first to presure pump. Just insert the water inlet hose in a water tank, however please take care that if you leave the pump work without ay water for more than 2 minutes the pump might be destroed.
I had this same problem and called Jura Capresso. They had me straighten out a paper clip and stick it up each spout as far as I could and jiggle it around (after bringing the panel with the spouts down as far as possible) Then they said to **** the panel containing the spouts up and down several times and then press the rinse button. Repeat this process several times. That did the trick for me. They said sometimes the spouts get clogged and just need to be cleared.
It can be many things. If I understand machine start working (pouring water) itself, otherwise not working. Probably your touch pads is bad, must be replaced. If I now more about problem mighty I can help more.
