Rancilio coffee machine .no water coming out of the group head . steam coming of the group head


Hi Ewah,

If you are getting steam from the group and no water when you turn on the water button - then you may have a group blockage.

The fix depends on the type of machine you have.
If it is a commercial type - then call in a qualified coffee technician.
If it is a domestic type like rancilio sylvia, the you could try to descale - maybe too late, but worth a go.JURA descaling tablets
If when descaling, no water is coming from the group try leaving the steam tap open when asking for water.That way you may get the descaler liquid moving inside the boiler and it may clear the solenoid valve blockage.
If no joy with that you may need to replace solenoid valve.

Domestic machines need regular descaling to avoid group blockages.

I have a Keurig Vue. I have descaled and cleaned the product on schedule but it leaks water from all around the brew head and only 5-6 oz of coffee make it into the mug. I tried to clean out the pin also...


Remove and clean the Brew Head, with the V700 the way to remove would be to open the lid with the handle, place your fingers around the Brew Head, there are tabs to each side, press tabs and pull down and toward you. Wash this out thoroughly in your kitchen sink. Now before replacing the Brew Head, with the handled lid up, turn the back of the brewer so that it is facing you...Look straight down into the top of the brewer, you will see the needles, use an old toothbrush to clean them. Replace the Brew Head and descale the brewer with White Vinegar (do NOT dilute with water) or Keurig descale solution (purchased only through their website). The video to watch the descale instructions is: www.keurig.com/customerservice

Hope this helps!

Weak Coffee


First think to check is the spray head which pours the water onto the powder. remove the spray head, clean it and soak it in descaler.
reassemble and do a brew. When finished check the surface of the coffee has 6 dimples where the water has poured onto it and that the coffee is uniformly wet. If no dimples or dry spots, get replacement spray heads.

Making very bitter espresso. I already decalcified it and ran empty tanks through, without success.


Hi. The bitterness you have got is most likely to be dirty group head and shower. Remove the shower and clean with a steel wool. The group handle and filter basket will also have to be cleaned. Sounds like your using a dark oily blend. You cant use different blends unless you clean the group head every time. Same with the grinder. You can not use different blends for grinding. The different blends just cross contaminate, which can make your coffee bitter. Incorrect grind or wrong water tempreture can also make bitter coffee. Running descale does nothing for the coffee taste. Descale only cleans the lime/calcium in the boiler. Coffee does not pass through the boiler. Give your group head and handle a clean, and you should be right. Hope this helps. Dazza

I have tried to descale my machine with three bottles of vinegar and fresh water (sitting for 4 hours) my machine is still blocked up what can I do>


Unplug the machine and remove the spray head inside the cavity where the k cups go. Clean the holes with a toothpick and small brush. Clean it also from the inside, if possible. The descaling part is probably very well done. Getting the scale out of the spray head will finish the job. Be sure to flush the reservoir with copious amounts of fresh water.

Best regards (and enjoy your coffee!),

Low water pressure, so takes ages to produce a cup of coffee. Has been de-scaled regular


If you get good flow with the portafilter out, you may need a new pump. When you descale do you run the descaler through the brew head? That is one problerm that people make is running the descaler through both the wand and the brew head. Sclae will build up in the pipe in the brew head and restrict it.

Lack of water pressure


Try Descaling your machine with Descaling solution. Your group head may be clogged with calcium deposits which will cause a pressure loss.

If you need descaler you can purchase it at http://cerinicoffee.com/Dezcal_descaler_4pack.asp

Steam blowing out of group head


Were you using cleancaf to descale? If so, it is not a strong enough descaler. Use Dezcal. or a Dezcal cleancaf mixture. The two work great together.

Make sure you get some descaler in the solenoid area by turning on and off the coffee button.

Hope it works out for you.
