Question about Solis Master 5000 Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Water not getting through

I was having leaking under the solis master so i started to clean it. But it would not go through the cleaning cycle properly. very little water would come out of the nozzles where the coffee usually comes through. I have no problem with heat and the steam wand works fine. There is water collected behind the brewing unit underneath a white nozzle that appears to come from the water reservoir and should be going through the brewing unit.

If you look under that white nozzle you will notice a small hole that leads to the drain tray, clean out hole and the area or small enclosure around the white nozzle (clogged with coffee grounds), and make sure that if you pour a little water in that enclosure it goes to the drain tray. That will solve the water under machine problem.
For the amount of water from the coffee nozzle, check brew unit, you will have to remove the shower screen and clean, make sure that the unit is not clogged in one of the tubes.

Question for Solis Master 5000 Digital. After being professionally repaired, it has worked fine for about 2 months, and then suddenly stopped brewing coffee. I cleaned it.Then I decalcified it using it's...


I am not familiar with the digital model. But it sounds like something didn't get put back together properly. The top mesh is very tricky and easy to strip if you took it apart to clean. I had a problem with mine and now just leave it on and wipe it off in place. If its not tight water will just bypass the coffee grounds. Sorry, I couldn't be more help

For the past three weeks, I have had (fresh) water oozing out of the bottom of my Solis Master DIgital 5000 Espresso machine. I suspect there is a leaking hose or fitting that is comprimised. Are there...


Hi
if you have replaced the display, you can check the boiler for leaks, which is the probable cause of you leak, but also check the drain behind the brew unit. There is a pocket below the injector that can plug up and cause water to drain under the drip tray. Check this first. Stick you finger in the pocket and see if there is water in it. If there is, the drain below and to the right is plugged and just needs to be cleaned. If not Its probably your boiler.

Drip tray is filling up with water sooner than in


Hi
Either your grind is very coarse or your injector seal is bad. The injector is behind the brew unit and has 2 orange O-rings on it. See if you can wiggle the injector?

Solis Master 5000 is leaking water from underneath machine when not in use.


HI
The most common problem for leaking underneath the machine is the boiler, but there can be other problems. If the water is dirty, there is a drain behind the brew unit that gets clogged with coffee residue, If its clear, its probably the boiler. If its the boiler it needs replacing. Check ebay.

My Solis master 5000 leaks water from the removable water decante


Hi
On top of the machine under the water tank is a doughnut cover. Pry the cover up and it should pop off. There is a black seal in the center that will shrink over time with calcium and that just needs to be replaced. When you go to replace it it will not slip in. You need to run your finger nail around the bottom of the seal to get it in. Then it will push down. Flat part of the seal up.

Steam/water valve leaks water, only fills coffee to 50%, help? I have completely removed steam valve assembly to clean and reassemble. Leak persists, suspect o-rings?


Hi
If your water valve is cream or black colored, you need a new manifold. They will get hair line cracks if you steam, but don't cool them down after steaming by running cold water through them. If you have one of the new brass(silver) manifolds it could be your O-rings but i doubt it.
