The wand is relatively easy to remove. Thing is whether you have the right tools. If you can find stubby phillips and flat screw drivers, the job will be much easier.

You first have to remove the trim that surrounds the pod and where it covers part of the wand.

The wand is held down by a flat-headed short screw. It might take a few tries to remove this screw due to calcification over the years. Once removed, the wand should just slight out. Check if the o-rings need to be replaced as well.

Mr Coffee Pump Espresso machine not working. Lights alternately flash between coffee and steam icons, machine makes noise, but coffee does not brew, water does not flow, steam does not come out.


The espresso portion may be clogged with hard water deposits, and the steamer tube with casein. Run a tank of plain white vinegar a couple of times then run a couple of tanks of plain water to flush the vinegar, Open the steam valve while the espresso portion is running and set the steamer pot under the steamer. Don't be surprised if a long white tube of hard white material slides out of the steamer valve. That's the casein, actually a form of organic plastic.

My Breville Expresso machine does nothing when I turn dial to make coffee


Sounds like its time to clean it. Run white vinegar and a little water through it.

I got through to the tech support at Breville and they helped me fix this problem. What they had me do was:

1)Fill the water tank all the way up

2)Turn the power on and wait until the heating light turns off.

3)without coffee in the head turn the machine to espresso mode and let it pump for a minute.

4)after a minute turn to standby for a couple seconds then turn it to steam mode for a minute.

5) after this minute is up turn it back to standby for a couple of seconds and then back to espresso mode.

6) the technician said to do this seven times, but mine started working after three or so. The tech said the fixes about 80 to 90 percent of machines with this problem.

Good Luck!

Why does the pump make a knocking sound when using the steamer


Hi,
The steam is hitting water somewhere in the tubing....this is not a problem... it's just the natural reaction that happens when very hot steam hits cooler water...

Too much water coming out of steam wand


I worked at StarBucks, what we did was put water into a contaner and steam the water, a lot of the time why the steamer doesn'..t work as well is because it is clogged. Another way to do it is to just run your steamer, also go to a coffee store and buy expresso machine cleaner. It could just need a good cleaning.

No coffee


Does it come out water from the steamer?
if that is the case I would clean the filter on the machine.
