Steam tube appears blocked

Hi. We have an expresso deream machine and live in New Zealand. We have been unsuccessful in unblocking the steam vent (using a small needle). The steam is very weak. What else can we do? Is there a service agent in NZ that can help?

If you have espresso machine cleaner you can soak the steam wand for a few hours in the soap and hot water, then try using a needle or papre clip to clear out the nozzle.

Miele CVA4070 Steam flow through heater blocked


when you remove the cappucinotore, ( the piece that sticks down with the chrome tube and rubber pick up tube) from the door, do you still get no steam? that piece should be removed and cleaned daily. if you dont, I would imagine that it is completely blocked with old milk and would block off the steam.

Sylvia still makes great milk for steam but on Saturday it stopped producing hot water for expresso. What do I do? I live in North Tas


Hi
. If the brew thermostat is bad it won’t heat. To test for this, push the steam switch and wait 15 seconds. Then open the steam knob and push the middle button and see if the water is warm. If it is then you need a new brew thermostat. That is the thermostat that has the red dot on the top. It sets on top of the boiler next to the steam thermostat. If you take the top off, make sure that the machine is unplugged.

When I try to make espresso with my new XP2070, water comes out through the steam arm and not through the nozzles. I've tried it without coffee and all the water still comes out through the steam/hot water...


David, the XP2070 won't operate properly until you've set the clock on the unit.

In case you don't have an owner's manual, I've attached a copy of the manual from the Krups site that you can download and print for free.

Please take some time to reaquaint yourself with the setup and procedure for using the expresso portion of the unit, as you might just have some sequence issues that is preventing the expresso from getting brewed.

Otherwise, it could be that the unit has a faulty seal in the pressure vessel that isn't allowing the expresso side to function properly, hence the reason the water might be coming out of the frothing tube instead of through the expresso brewing section.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

One side of the expresso machine is not working


Check the nozzle at the end of the steam wand, use a paperclip to clear, if you can get hot coffee then the steam wand is just blocked.

Drying cycle problems


Take the door fascia off, and you'll see a pipe from the steam outlet to the Soap Dispenser in the door.
Take that off, and flush out the small bit of food that is blocking the tube.
Put the cleared pipe back in situ.
Run machine, you should get steam, and no water.
When it blocks again, and you get the water again, repeat unblocking process etc...

No steam!


Ran into the same problem on mine just after using the steam, so it definetely wasn't clogged... hope this helps.

Just try running the expresso maker through a full cycle and then try the steam again. Not sure if the machine air locked or something, but the expresso cycle appeared to get the water flowing again and then it had no trouble producing steam.

Hope it works.
