SOURCE: Kitchenaid Espresso maker no longer dispenses hot water from frother

by frother you mean it puts out steam ? if yes then I need to know how long you hold down the button and have you checked the hose in back to see if it has cracks or is kinked?

I have a similar problem, I think. I get water through the steam thing, but not through the brew head. Not sure what to do either.

SOURCE: No steam comes to milk frother

Try this: 1. Pour in vinegar instead of water. 2. Bring vinegar to a boil but do not run it through the machine. 3. Turn off machine for about an hour. 4. Remove sheath from the frother and clean the metal tip. 5. Place tip of frother into large mug of cold water. 6. Turn espresso machine on and allow vinegar to run through frother. 7. You'll know the frother is clear when the water in the mug begins to churn rapidly (and perhaps loudly).
It may take the vinegar a little while to dissolve and loosen the blockage. If the process does not work the first time time, try again later and allow the warm vinegar to sit in the machine longer.

Optional: Before starting the process, unbend a paperclip or thin metal hook (the kind used for hanging holiday ornaments) and use it to clear the steamer orifice.
To keep frother clear: Follow recommended descaling schedule in user manual

Why is my new delonghi icona espresso machine steam tube leaking water when I'm not using it, only making espresso.


If it is new, you should return it to the store/manufacturer. The leak should be covered by warranty, however if you attempt any self fix you would void any warranty.

Bucket Testing to Locate Leaks In Your Swimming Pool


<span>How To Conduct a Swimming Pool Leak Detection Using A Simple Bucket Test </span> <p><img src="Bucket.jpg" />In Arizona, you can see up a 3/4" per day loss through evaporation and it is suspected that during the course of a year, that nearly 3/4 of the pool would have been replaced due to evaporation. <br /> <p><span>Evaporation will vary greatly </span><span>depending</span><span> on a several factors; water temperature, air temperature, wind, dew points, barometric pressures and just overall changes in seasons. Also, if you heat your pool, you will also notice variations in evaporation. Because of these factors, evaporation rates can fluctuate from day to day, pool to pool, and of course, from parts of the country to others.</span><br /> <p>It is amazing how many people call in with concerns of leaks in their pool. They really are not sure <i>why</i> they are concerned but something has caught their attention and caused concern.<br /> <p>Before becoming too concerned about a leak, or spending the money on an expensive leak detection, conduct simple bucket test to determine if water loss in your swimming pool is due to a leak or is just evaporation. <br /> <p>In a nut shell, a bucket test exposes water in a bucket to the same conditions as those affecting your swimming pool. By comparing the water loss in the bucket to that in the pool, it is possible to determine if the pool is leaking or if supposed leaks are just the result of water being lost to the air.<br /> <p>Before undertaking any test, make sure your automatic water leveler is turned off!<br /> Bucket Test Procedure: <ol> <li>Bring the pool water to its normal level</li> <li>Fill an empty bucket with pool water to about one inch from the top of bucket. (By filling the bucket close to the top you are ensuring that air movement over the surface of the bucket will similar to that of the pool.)</li> <li>Place the bucket on the first or second step of the pool. To keep it from floating away it may be necessary to place a few bricks or rocks into the bucket. (By placing the bucket in the pool water you are ensuring that the water temperature of each body of water will be similar).</li> <li>Mark the water level inside the bucket with a permanent marker on the outside of the bucket.</li> <li>Mark the water level of the pool on the outside of the bucket, on the pool wall, or skimmer face plate. I recommend the bucket, because then you have something tangible to look at. </li> <li>Operate the pool for 24 hours as it had been operated when a leak was first suspected, in most cases, this will be the normal run times. </li> <li>After 24 hours, make a second mark on the bucket to indicate the level of the water in the bucket and do the same for the pool level.</li> <li>Compare the two levels. If the pool water has changed more than the inside water level, there is probably a leak. At this point, you should contact a professional leak detection agency.</li></ol> <span>You are probably wondering how this works when the body of waters are so vastly different in size. It all comes down to <i>surface area</i>. No matter how large or how small, environmental factors act the same on the surface area of the body you are testing. </span> <span><br /></span> Further Diagnosis: Establishing suspected leak locations with a "Pump on/Pump off test" <br /> <p>Comparing the results of the bucket tests with the pump on for 24 hours to the results with the pump off for 24 hours can provide additional information as to the type of leaking you may be experiencing. <br /> <p>Conduct a second bucket test with the equipment sitting idle. Do the same steps as noted above. Any leaks during this time are now called <b>static leaks.</b><br /> <p>Water loss pump on &gt; water loss pump off = suspect return plumbing leaks (Pressure side plumbing)<br /> <p><b><u>RESULT #1:</u></b> Water Loss Active <b>greater than </b> Water Loss Static <br /> <p><u>PROBABILITY:</u> Skimmer/main drain or other plumbing leaks (return lines, infloor system, aerator)\<br /> <p><b><u>RESULT #2:</u></b> Water Loss Active <b>equal to </b>Water Loss Static <br /> <p><u>PROBABILITY:</u> suspect shell, liner or fitting leaks, (non-plumbing)<br /> <p>If you have an in floor cleaning system, water feature or specialty items on your pool you should also conduct independent tests with each of these in the normal operation and compare them against other results when they are not in operation.<br /> <p>These types of tests are not 100%, but they do provide you with enough information to determine if further leak detection is necessary and to provide the leak detection company with some great information!<br /> <p><br /> <p>We hope to have been of service to you!<br /> <p>The Ugly Pool Guy, <a href="http://www.wefixuglypools.com">www.WeFixUglyPools.com</a><br />

The car is overheating and the water is constantly running out! Steam comes from where the defrost comes from.


Check for dampness in the footwells; the heater core may have sprung a leak resulting in coolant loss and therefore overheating. Heater core replacement may require some disassembly of the lower dashboard and glove compartment.

Our delonghi magnific was cleaned using delonghe descaler and began leaking almost immediately, we replaced the water resevour but this has not improved matters, any thoughts? Nic


i had the exact same problem. My machine was working perfectly and have had it for about 5 years. I descaled usnig the solution that was sold to me by DeLonghi Customer Service, followed the instructions perfectly and after the cleaning/descaling process was complete, it started leaking from the resevoir side and possibly underneath. The water tank seal seems to be fine and cannot locate the source of the water without taking the machine apart. I also hear steam coming from somewhere for about 5 min after making a cup of coffee. If you find a solution, please email me at steve_hadeed@yahoo.com. Thanks

Saeco Odea Go - Hot water leaks from bottom of machine


That's leaking from the hoses coming out from the boiler,if the machine is new it should be still under warranty, may have to take it back to the service center.When making coffee the lines are under pressure and the water never have a chance to pass through the ground coffee.

Water Leaks from the head gasket while heating up to use steam


This is a result of the water temperature in the boiler increasing, thereby expelling water that may remain in the lines out of their respective exit points. A solution may be to place a container under the group head to catch the water, or opening the steam valve partially to allow the water to exit through the steam wand (again placing a vessel/cup/pitcher there to catch the water). This is a problem that even higher end (dual-boiler) models have, due to the necessary purging of water that accumulates in the steam wand during down-time.
Don't look at it as a problem, but simply as a quirk that single-boiler machines have. If you are still irked by the issue, consider buying an inexpensive manual frother (Bodum makes these) to froth and heat your milk (in the microwave after frothing) separately. An added plus is that you can do this while you make your espresso, so if you make primarily milk-based drinks (latte, capps etc.) you'll save on time.

Steam Wand Leaking on La Pavoni Espresso Si


I HAD the same problem. I fixed it for 50 cents. It takes the removal of 4 screws (2 phillips on top, 2 long standard on bottom by the group) to remove the top to access the steam wand valve. Once the the top (and the chrome bezel) is removed, then screw out the valve counterclockwise buy ALL THE WAY until it comes out. There are 2 O-rings on the stem of the valve that wear out, Cut these off with a sharp knife, go to your local hardware store, buy 2 new ones for 50 cents, install new O-rings, and reverse the disassembly procedure. Voila, no more leaky steam valve!
