Why isn't water coming through my espresso machine? ... clean, waffle side up, smooth side down, and that the water hose is not crimped. ... After one cup of waterhas flown through the brew head and the steam wand, the vapor lock will be fixed. ...When the ready light comes on again, turn the steam knob open to release ...
found it was cheaper to buy a complete barista on ebay than to buy the individual part, which was very hard to find. Mine is not a barista aroma grande, however. It was a much older version. You may have more success on ebay looking for the barista aroma grande part. Also check thrift shops in your area. Often they will have units that are not complete, and you may be able to find the part you want that way. Good luck!
exact same lid is on the Wolfgang Puck WPTPCM010 coffee maker. (It's
exactly like the Starbucks one - same size & fit.) Call (800)
275-8273 and order part # WPTPCM010-6; the product description is "LID
FOR CARAFE". It will cost you $4.99 + 5.00 shipping. My Starbucks
coffee pot works PERFECTLY again. Just make sure that you put the lid
on the carafe correctly before you use it, since the seal is new.
I just had my Barista Athena do the same thing. My son took the the coffee basket holder apart, nothing wrong there but the gasket on the bottom inside of the holder, where the coffee basket fits, is compressed letting the basket sit too close to the bottom of the holder. He tested this by raising in the basket and got coffee to flow ever so slightly. I just happened to be looking for a new gasket and saw your post. It is my understanding that Starbucks is no longer making coffee machines. Your best bet is to contact Starbucks and ask who they may be recommending for repair support. I hope this helps.
It may already be stripped. Push down on the thumbscrew (the thing you put the key on to remove the screen) If you get a gap in the screen to brew head, it is stripped. Pry under the screen and it will come out. Remove the larger nut on the stem of the screen and order a new thumbscrew. That is why we call it a thumbscrew. Finger tight only.
