Question about DeLonghi Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
When I use steam wand either for steam or hot water, it sounds like it's starting up like usual,but then literally pops off of the unit. I've cleaned it out but still happens. It seems like pressure is building up somewhere, causing it to pop off?
You are correct in associating the pop off is relative to the pressure. If the steam wand as you called it comes free when pressure builds, the problem can be the wand is damaged, not completely free of debris, or misaligned. I suggest you contact the company directly and have a technician run you through some tests to locate the problem.

SOURCE: titanium ventilate issues
Remove the milk frother,checked to see if it is blocked.
This can cause the machine not to ventilate correctly.
They tend to block with old hard milk.

SOURCE: steam wand not working
When I got my X1 (used,) the steamer was clogged. I unscrewed the end of the nozzle, and a big chunk of calcium(?) came out. I had to poke it with some wire with the steamer on. The way I got the end off is: I wrapped it with a leather glove first, then turned it with a pair of pliers. I still managed to scratch it a little bit though. Maybe you can turn it by inserting a needle in the little hole on the side of the nozzle. I've been thinking of using distilled water to avoid the calcium build-up in the future.

I have found that I have to remove the group valve assembly about once every 1 or 2 months to clean out the .030" to .040" opening in the valve body. The manual gives instructions on how to do this. It becomes clogged with a thick paste like substance.
