This is a general comment for people having problems with leaks and pressure in their espresso machines. If you do not used filtered water, the minerals and other materials suspended in the water will bond to the moving parts and tubes of your machine (e.g.: scale). The problem will be worse if you live in an area with particularly hard water. In some cases the pressure pipes can get completely blocked and if the pump is powerful enough, the pipes can rupture, otherwise, the pump will simply not put out any water. The solution is to regularly flush out the system with descaler. The frequency of cleaning depends upon how often you use the machine. You can get descaler from any decent coffe place (like Starbucks), an appliance repair place, or the hardware store. I use CLR which is sold at hardware stores. CLR stands for Calcium-Lime-Rust, and it effectively cleans all of these and is cheaper than specialty scale removers. Simply dilute some in water and pour the mixture in the machine, then cycle the pump and run it through. Collect the spent liquid and run it through again 4 or 5 times (or more if you've never cleaned your machine before...) Allow the liquid to sit for 10-15 minutes between flushes so that the solution has a chance to eat away at the scale. Once you have done this a few times, flush out the machine thoroughly with clean water 4 or 5 times, using CLEAN water each time you rinse. If you want to get an idea of the scale that has been removed, keep a small amount of the original clean solution in a glass and then compare the spend cleaning liquid with unused cleaning liquid to see the difference. The spent liquid should be foggy/muddy compared to the clean stuff and if you let it sit, the scale will settle to the bottom of the glass and will be clearly visible. You can prevent some of the buildup in your machine by using filtered water as they do at Starbucks.

DPcurry is right. You may have to plug it in to get a "feel" for which way and to what degree to rotate the shaft, but works like a charm.

SOURCE: I need a replacement lid for the thermal carafe

In your manual there should be a number for parts ordering. I had the same problem. The part apparently costs $30 but because I live in Vancouver, Canada, the kind gentleman at Starbucks offered to send it to me free of charge as the duties at our border/customs would inflate the cost big time. I was very surprised that he was so willing to do this. Keep in mind though, I bought the machine and it was near $200. Very expensive for a drip coffee maker.

Hope this helps.

Starbucks no longer offers replacement parts nor any form of support for the Barista (Solo or Grande) coffee makers...eBay is your best bet!

My Saeco Digital Italia stream/hot water wand quit working. When I press stean and turn the knob it pops out (not off) and nothing comes out. Hot water also want come out.


Push in on the knob when it pops out if that works then the steam valve assembly needs to be replaced, ask for the stainless steel valve replacement.

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!

Cannot prime pump.


I had the same problem, found the steam wand was plugged. You can screw the wand off (the crome metal tube) and then open the water valve. If you have flow take a wire and clean out the wand and your good to go.

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 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.

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!

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.
