Re: Isomac expresso machine

We have owned an Isomac Millenium for ~2y.

In the first months, we encountered low water to the brew head, although both the steam and hot water wands had decent pressure and flows.

Adjusting our grind, so that the coffee beans were coarser helped immensely--for awhile.

Then the problem gradually reappeared as an extremely slow brew time. Our machine was still relatively new, so we shipped it back to our place of purchase. It came back working just great and interestingly the filter in the resovoir was now filled with the filtering particulate it did not come with.

I am surmising, that however great the engineering is on the Isomac, manufacturing leaves something to be desired. Do not let your warranty expire. Pay the shipping and fix your otherwise great machine.

Water shoots out of steam valve and can't make espresso


The steam function and the expresso use the same elements to create the steam but the valves will direct the steam to the expresso unit or the steam arm. Most likely you have a faulty valve. In most cases the valve will not open until the pressure gets to the right level. If you are just getting hot water out of the steam arm instead of steam via the expresso unit it most likely means that the valve is faulty. The valves can be replaced but is not easy. You will need to have the unit serviced or you could try to replace the valves. Make sure the flow meter is working before you replace the valves. You can check the operation of the flow meter by running the hot water cycle and making sure that you get the right amount of hot water. Good luck!

How do I remove the shower and the diffuser on an isomac millenium?

You need to remove the brew head gasket in order to get the screen out. Then you will see everything else. The brew head gasket holds everything in.

The brew unit light is steady on and I cannot get an expresso. The pump and steamer work fine.

Open the door and remove the dredge drawer, then the brew unit. Slide the brew unit back in , then push on the upper left side of the brew unit until it clicks. Close the door and push the dredge drawer back in with 1 finger on the right side of the dredge drawer. See if that worked. If it did, then loosen the nut behind the coffee dispenser to release tension on the brew group, then tighten again. Lube the receiver tip on the brew unit.

Leaking water from steamer

For the grouphead check the basket there might be a slight bump around the edge that is preventing it from making a good seal when it contacts the gasket in the head. If the Double works fine then the gasket is not the problem.
For the steam wand try flushing wand for 3 seconds just before steaming, if that does not help with the watery milk, then the boiler is not getting hot enough to produce steam.

Can't Prime Water Circuit

Hi You need to switch Steam ON so it heats up and then turn Steam button OFF (no light) and then turn steamer knob counter clockwise you will hear the pump start up and then water will stream out. This is when it's primed. Turn steamer clock wise to close. You must do this everytime you use the steamer.

Cafe Roma Expresso/Cappucino machine

My understanding is that this is normal with units like the ESP8XL which use a pressurized portafilter. Non-pressurized units will leave a dry puck of used grounds.

Don't know how to work the steamer.

I have the same Conair Cuisine Ultra expresso maker as you; its an old one. Make sure the coffee grind is in the spoon/filter cup and as the water heats it will brew the expresso. Simply twist the the knob at the top of the silver steam valve stem will let out hot steam for you to frosh the milk.

Try opening the frothing valve by turning the dial and force water through it instead of steam by pressing the middle, coffee button. You may be experiencing vapor lock. Once the water comes through the steamer valve, turn the steamer knob off and release the coffee button. Then try the steamer button with the steamer dial open. This may do the trick.
