When I start my car smoke comes out of tail pipe for a few seconds water all so coming out


Water and vapor (steam) coming from the tail pipe is normal and will stop after a few miles when everything is hot. That is one of the reasons exhausts need replacing as they rot with rust and is more evident on cars that only do low mileage as the exhaust does not get hot enough to boil off the water and it sits in the pipe slowly rusting it away. What you see as smoke is probably steam and is more evident on cold mornings. If the car is not using oil then I wouldn't worry.

Water smell


You may have some residue inside the steam pipe from previous uses (e.g. milk). If you know how to remove the steam pipe, this will be easy to clean. Otherwise, you could try a pipe cleaner (depending on the type of steam wand).

You can also try running the steam pipe into some water, but be careful not to overheat the boiler (consult your manual... it may say you can't steam continuously for more than a minute, or even less).

When I turn on the steam valve, nor hot water nor steam comes out (not one drop), it doesn't make it to the nozzle and instead it goes directly to the drip tray. Coffees dispense works...


Hi, sounds like either you have a blocked or fauly solenoid, or micro switch or the water inlet side of the boiler is bocked. This is easy to fix. You need to be able to get to the inlet on the boiler, undo the water line and drill it out using a 3mm drill bit. Dazza

My gas water heater sometimes sounds like its perculating. Is this a problem?


It can be if it keeps boiling the water. Your tank will have a pressure relief valve with a copper pipe dropping down near the floor...is there signs of water coming out of the pipe? Be certain it is working by testing it...lift the lever in the center of the relief (Place a bucket under the pipe first to catch the water that will flow out). Over time these valves can rust up and not work.

In the worst case, boiling the water causes steam build up in the tank which is under pressure. Enough steam can cause the tank to rupture and that is a bad thing.

I am not certain but you probably need a new temperature probe if the tank is over heating the water inside.

Steam does not come out of steam pipe


If you wait too long after making the coffee, you will not have enough water left to make steam. Try to steam the milk immediatels after the coffee loses pressure.

Hi,

If you look at the end on the steam pipe you will see a nipple, loosen this and make sure it is clean.
