Question about Salton EX20 Coffee Maker, Espresso Machine
Even simpler way to prove the hot/warm water does not freeze quicker than cold water. It goes like this:
Lets say the two waters in question are 95 degrees and 55 degrees. The 55 degree water will freeze faster because the hotter water will get to 55 degrees on it's way down to freezing; thus adding on the time to reduce the first 40 degrees before being at the exact same temperature as the opponent water.
Also in regards to the dissolved minerals post...most minerals actually lose solubility in water as the temperature goes up, this is why hot water heaters and boilers in coffee makers get filled with calcium deposits. So hot water can have less minerals than cold. This is why I got an R/O system for my house when I lived in an area that had very hard water....when I brought water up to a boil on the stove, it would get a horribly ugly crust on top from the minerals coming out of solution.

Well as i dont know what machine you have I will give you a generic troule shooting for manual esspresso machines.
first if the steam is working one can make the assumption that the way from the watertank to the bioler is ok.
that leaves us with the handle the filter you put your grindend beans in. Or the filter on the machine.
So first trie and see if it comes out water when you dont have on the handle with the espresson filter.
Will water not come even with the handle off? then its the fitler in the machine. trie and remove it and clean it or trie and descale it and force water through the espresso exit.
Will the water come out just fine with the filter and handle off?
then its those two things.
Trie and put the filter in alitle descaling for a couple of hours and the clean it "extremly" good.
