Question about FrancisFrancis! X1 - Stainless Steel Espresso Machine
I turn the knob to steam milk and get nothing. It is like the knob is not connected to anything. There is plenty of water in the bucket and it has worked well for several years. The espresso part works fine.
Check the end/nozzle of the steam wand, if you open the wand and while getting nothing it is hot, then the nozzle is blocked use a paperclip to clear the hole at the end of tip. If you have done this already and still no steam then it is clogged where the steam valve connects to the boiler.
