SOURCE: the wand were the knob is located to turn off and

Hi,

There is a nice article to fix these machines. Read :-

Symptom - Steam knob turns more than it used to and no steam comes out of the steam wand. It is likely the lever which turns steam on/off is no longer in its proper position or does not spin with the knob assembly.
The fix (Summary) - Open the machines top, turn knob until loose, reset lever to proper position, tighten set screw, tighten knob, reassemble machine.
Tools you will need - Short and regular Phillips head screwdriver, hex-head Allen wrenches (tiny and small), needle nose pliers, skinny screwdriver.
The fix (Detail)
- Unplug the machine, remove water container.
- Move to a safe work area where screws and other small parts will not fall into the sink.
- Using the short Phillips head screwdriver remove the two side screws holding the light gray top on left and right.
- Using a small Allen wrench or hex screwdriver remove the two screws holding the cup warmer.
- Pry the cup warmer open. Notice the gasket and where it fits.
- Using Phillips head screw driver remove the 4 remaining screws holding the top. Remove the top.
- Take a picture with your digital camera (for memory purpose in case you start moving things around or undo anything else.
- The knob should have a spring clamp on the inside of the machine which keeps it from slipping off. If yours does not, turn the machine upside down and shake it until it falls out. These tend to pop off if you turn the knob too far. You can push it back on with a pair of needle nose pliers. It fits in the groove of the knob inside the machine wall. If the spring just slips off you should order a new knob from SAECO or build it up with electrical tape at least.
- Loosen the knob about 1.5 turns (don't force it, you may be creating the problem if it does not exist).
- You should notice a dull gray metal lever inside the circuit board which spins around the post the knob turns. This lever is likely in the wrong position or does not spin with the knob post. IF you can push it around freely with out turning the knob, this is definitely the broken part.
- The lever should move from a 9:00 position, clockwise to a 3:00 position to on the circuit board to turn the steamer on/off. Move the lever until it rests on a small shelf at the 9:00 position as you face the knob side of the machine. I use a small screw driver because my fingers are too large to fit in the space.
- Tighten the knob to its closed position (not overly tight). You will notice the lever has a set screw on top. Using the tiny Allen wrench, tighten (turn clockwise) the set screw. DO NOT LOOSEN ANY FURTHER - it may come out and it is a pain to put back in without further dis assembly.
- You should now be able to turn the knob and the lever should move from 9:00 clockwise to 3:00, and the knob should stop. If the knob continues to turn after this, you did not get the set screw tight enough. Move knob back to closed position and lever back to 9:00 position and tighten again. Test again.
- This is also a good time to inspect the tubing and clamps that hold them.
- Before you reassemble - put water container back on and turn on and test. DO NOT STICK YOU HAND IN THE MACHINE WHILE OPEN. the boiler gets hot.
- If all is well, reassemble the top and cup warmer in the order you disassembled them.
- Make yourself a nice latte as a reward for your hard work.
Tip - To make frothier steamed milk:
- Turn on steam knob and let excess water run into a cup until it turns to steam, Close knob.
- Put milk pitcher under steam wand, open steam knob, and move pitcher up and down several times to introduce air.
- When milk reaches 130 degrees, introduce more air
- You should have a nice micro foam when the milk reaches 160 degrees, and extra thickness at 180 degrees.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

SOURCE: i need to tighten a part on steam wand , not sure

Does the steam knob turns more than it used to and no steam comes out of the steam wand. It is likely the lever which turns steam on/off is no longer in its proper position or does not spin with the knob assembly. Is this what the issue is? If so I can tell you how to fix it. If not please give me more details.

Rig wand! you mean steam wand?
Take lid off and see if the knob clib connection to the steam valve is come out. Otherwise, possibly the steam valve's portioning washer is hardened and stuck. BUt sound slike shaft is broken or lost connection to the valve

My husband removed the steam wand from our Pasquini Livia because I am running out of steam too soon and I thought the wand needed to be tightened. Now we need to know exactly how the springs go back when...


There should be a brass disk also. The spring goes in first, then the brass disk with the curved side down, then the wand, and then the nut.
Low steam pressure, could be a sign of scale build up, or the heater is getting covered with sediment. The heating element is on the bottom of the boiler on a Pasquini. Also check you pressure gauge. It should b shutting off at 1.1bar of pressure. If it is lower that could be another cause of low pressure. It can be turned up by the pressurestat.

The hot water steam knob on my Sirena espresso machine no longer engages to prime or steam. It just turns and turns and turns....


I had the same problem. Here is how you fix it.

There are screws behind the water tank. Once these 4 screws are taken out, you can take off the top heat plate of the sirena. Then there are more screws holding down the outerlining from which the heat plate rests on. Take these screws out so that you can take out the outer lining. This will give you full access to the part you need to work on.

Once the machine is open you will need a small allen wrench to tighten the specific part that has come loose. It attached to the axle from which the knob is attached to. Its a metal part that resembles this picture at this link

http://www.rceasy.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/08/servo_arms.jpg

On this part there is a small screw that needs to be tightened so that it controls how far the knob can turn. When this part spins along with the axle, it will hit a stationary metal block that keeps it from turning too far. You will have to mess with the mechanics of it to figure out what I am talking about. Hope this helps and good luck!

Problem with Cimbali M29 steaming wands


Check the water level, if you remove the top panel you will notice that the steam valve are connected at different heights on the boiler. If the machine has the silver probe remove it and clean.

NO steam ?


Hi Can you get water from the machine? If not, the first thing I would check is that the steam wand is not plugged. Remove the from the wand by loosing the top cap all the way and pulling down on the black lower [portion. That way you don't loose the pieces inside. Insert something into the end of the wand like a paper clip and see if it is plugged.If that doesn't do I would suspect either the calve is broken and needs replaced or you have a plug in the line.

Steamer is not getting hot enough.


Try using the milk clamp on the tube going into the milk.Tightening it will make your milk hotter.
Your steam wand however, is a different problem.
First, check in the programming that the steam temp. is 125 celcius.
If it is, and none of the tubes from the steam wand to the boiler valve are blocked, your boiler temp. sensor may be faulty, in which case, you will need to replace that.

you can tighten the steam want with a wrench. At the top of the wand just before it enters into the machine you see a "nut" use this to tighten or loosen the wand

I have just had a similar problem. Water no longer moves through the steam wand when I try to prime it. Instead, water shoots through the shot handle (or screen if handle is not in).

One thing I did notice is that the dial for the steam wand unscrewed too far and basically popped out. I screwed it back in and the water did not ever come out of the wand again. I took the top lid plate off and unscrewed the wand dial and removed it. I put it back and noticed that there is a little metal spring switch underneath that I assume turns the wand pump on.

Attached to the dial is a plastic sleeve with a flat side. When the dial is turned, this sleeve should turn the switch on. I noticed though that the sleeve is creeping up the shaft towards the dial head which makes it miss the spring switch.

I don't know what kept the sleeve in place before. Probably a plastic stop that has been worn away from use. There is an allen screw in the sleeve, but tightening it doesn't seem to keep it in place. Perhaps inserting a spring in between the dial and the sleeve would work, but the sleeve cannot be taken off to do this. No other answers right now. My wife is not happy the lattes have dried up.
