Question about Astoria Compact CKXE Espresso Machine
I have an Astoria Compack CKXE automatic espresso machine. Till now, i have almost two years using it daily without any problem. About 1 month ago I observed that the water from the group was less than usual; from then, the water is less and less every day and, by now, some times it dispatch steam only. I never use the hot water dispenser, but when these problems began I tried to use it; some times work correctly and some others not even steam comes out. Plus, the water pump makes a lot more noise than usual, and some times some kind of internal noisy vibration. I have some knowledge about electronics and yesterday opened the machine and removed the water pump; inside of it are two springs, and both of them are worn away and a little loose. My question is, is that the problem? Do I have to change the springs or thw whole water pump? Or maybe neither of them? Thank's a lot...
I would just replace the whole pump. you could rebuild it but they never seem to last that long with a rebuild. espressoparts.com should have them for between 70 and 100 dollars. its been a while since i bought one but i remember them being relatively cheap. do you use a water filter? it will extend the pump life quite a bit
