Question about Briel Chamonix ES-35 Espresso Machine
Hello. Steam is shooting out of the drip holes(probably not correct terminology) . I have cleaned the coffee basket and the upper screen(fixated to the unit), but steam is shooting out of the holes on the bottom of the basket where the espresso generally drips out. Any ideas?
First all of your water drips out and then steam comes out the brewhead. (usually only when you select steam to froth milk) This leaves a very limited amount of steam to froth milk with and makes a mess. While it may be too late to help you, I have three machines that are doing the same thing. There is a checkball and spring assembly in the boiler section called the "aqua stop" that is leaking by. (it gets gunked up with minerals) I pulled one machine apart and had to destroy it to get the "aqua stop" assembly apart. It may be easier to buy a new boiler for $80 (cheaper than new) but I cannot remember the website I found to buy the boiler. A good clean and soak with vinegar (possibly more than once) may work to dissolve the mineral buildup. Good luck.
