Question about Espressione XP1 Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Water flows, but there is no heat!

My espressione will pump water through the system, however, it will not heat the water at all. I've pulled the machine apart, and there are not any disconnections of the cords inside. the connection box also does not look like it's shorted out (it may have but there are no obvious burn marks. Any ideas?

Hi
There might be a reset button on the top of the boiler or a fuse that is blown. You could check you element if you have an ohms meter. It should read 12. to 16. ohms if its a 110v machine or 50 to 56 ohms if its 220v. Unplug the machine before doing any work inside.

Why is my cafe retro espressione not making espresso? It look like the water is pumping up but not draining into the cup! Thanks


You need to descale it. step 1: run some white vinegar through it. step 2: use a commercial descling product (more effective than vinegar). Step 3: if the water flow is completely blocked by scale you need to un screw the exit filter by tipping the machine upside down. Then, remove the scale that built up under the filter, and clean the filter holes. Reassmeble the device and run a descaler through it.

The water is not getting picked up when the pump runs


sounds like you need to prime the pump manually:
Fill water tank.

Turn power on.

Open the steam knob all the way.

Press the coffee button.

Put a cup under the steam pump wand.

Wait until you see a steady flow of water and no air.

When you see the flow of water, close the steam knob.

Turn off the coffee button.

Now the machine should be ready to brew an espresso.

You might need to do this if you have not used your espresso machine for a few weeks or if it has been moved.
if that does not work contact the service center:

Espressione Retro Clogged?


I had the same problem with mine. unfortunatly you will need a special tool to remove the diffuser head. It' a very small spanner wrench that turns the special screw. I was able to make a spanner out of a screwdriver, but I'm a toolmaker by trade. Your best bet is to have it done by a qualified repair service. Also, if you damage the screw, it's imposible to get parts from them.

No water ever makes it through the pump


I just got mine working again. There was scale in the outlet port for the coffee basket.
Try cleaning by running through a solution of CLR and water (1 to 4 parts) and keep running until the blockage dissolves and flow is restored. Then run another solution again just to clean it for good.

MAKE SURE TO RINSE OUT THE RESERVIOUR VERY WELL. Should run clear without foam after about a gallon of clean water.
