Won't power up, after cleaning????

I have two of these machines, one of which works but is being used as a parts machine(but does work). The machine that does work was in need of a good cleaning. I cleaned all of the removable parts and decided to clean the coffee grinds that go into the machines internals. I removed the top of the machine cleaned the hell out of it and reassembled it. Now it won't power up, all the parts are installed correctly, and all of the switches were tested and worked. The machine has power, power is at the power switch, the power switch was tested and works, the fuse is not faulty. I thought that the board went, so I started disassembling my parts machine (after I confirmed that the machine works) I removed the top cover, decided not to go any further, then reinstalled the top cover. SAME ISSUE, the machine will not power up. Is there a safety switch that i'm missing?

Re: Won't power up, after cleaning????

There is a switch that shuts the machine off when the door is open, Be sure machine is on and all components in and press the switch manually and see if it comes on. Some times the switch gets cocked to one side and the activator on the door misses it. Let me know

Vitale S coffee machine

Looks like you need to descale your machine. A good cleaner is CLR. Follow the instructions on the bottle. If you don't want to purchase that, use white vinegar. Fill up the reservoir and run a brew cycle after letting sit for 20 mins. Make sure u run clean water threw at least 3 cycles once done

Coffee bean light won't go out when full and coffee won't work

Hi coffee friend I have just answered this question. I think
After you have done all the cleaning you have done, you can try this: do check that all knobs correctly set. That the steam spout is closed. that the water tank sitter correctly
Disconnect from power, wait 2-3minutes connect again and hope for the best.

Took the tray out to empty it, put it back in but now it says tray empty and won't work

Check the two contacts at the back of the tray. Be sure they are cleans as well as the plastic space between them. Then using compressed air clean where the contacts enter the machine in the rear. Usually there is moisture back there and the machine assumes the tray is full of water.

How do i clean the brew head of the FFx1. It says in the instructions to put the tablet into the filter holder and run the water through but with the machine off and cold, how can this work??

The water alone will not do much for cleaning but it will rinse it between daily use.

To actually clean the machine, I use a cleaning product such as clear1x1.gifJoe Glo - Espresso Machine Backflush Detergent.

The tricky part is the actual cleaning, first your going to want to clean the tank, and dump that out. Then re-fill the tank with cleaning product and run it through the machine. After cleaning run water through at least twice. If you don't do this you will just force the gunk from the tank into the head, clogging it worse.

Additionally they make a brush for scrubbing the head, if needed.
Sometimes when I don't have the detergent I just use white vinegar.

Enjoy your espresso machine.

I have had this coffeemaker for about two months and use it daily. Yesterday the machine refused to make coffee, it would perk and perk but very little water came through into the coffee pot. The self...

We had the same problem and it seemed to be caused by the little charcoal filter. We took it out and the machine worked fine. replacements are available, but expensive. (2 for $9.95)

My breville cafe roma wand is not steaming it is just making air bubbles

Have you tried cleaning out the machine? My steam wand started just spraying out a steady stream of water but was not heating up. I used the cleaning solution CLR (8 parts water, 1 part CLR) and let it run through the steam wand for awhile. At first it just kept streaming out then all of a sudden it stopped. I still kept it on just to see what would happen. After about 10 seconds all of a sudden the steam wand shot out whatever had clogged it and it works perfectly again! I had only used the machine about 10 times before this happened. I had not been cleaning it well after each use back then. Now I definitely do.

No steam, just hot water.

The steam wand has to be removed to be cleaned properly. Unfortunately, this procedure is not outlined in the manual. Just cleaning the wand on the outside or using a clip to clean the tip is not enough.

The other end of steam wand where it connects to the pressuring cabin actually swivels around a fitting. It is this fitting that you need to thoroughly clean. Years of using the machine can cause calcification around this fitting.

If you look under this end of hte steam wand, you should see a philllip-headed screw. Before you loosen this screw, you have to remove the grey trim so that the entire wand can be remove.

Once the entire wand is removed, what I just described will be much clearer.
