I have a rancilio epoca 1group. After I turn the steam wand off it keeps steaming. Would it need a new valve?


Hi Daren,
You could replace the whole steam valve wand but you don't need to.
The rubber grommet inside the steam valve is worn out and the tap wont close properly - that is why the steam is coming out.
You will find these parts with a commercial rancilio supplier.

Cant turn the steam knob


Replace the steam valve. It is not very hard to do and you can find a new valve with a Google search.

It is possible to attempt a repair but it is as hard to just replace the valve and repaired valve usually leak a bit.

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


Samantha,

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!

My Titanium leaking water. Under it


The steam valve assembly that the steam knob on the right hand side connects into is probably faulty. When you're steaming if you hear hissing coming from behind the knob then this indicates the connections into this assembly are leaking steam, and also hot water, which is why you're getting puddles under the machine. You can get a replacement steam valve assembly that fixes some issues with the original (part code SVM-17, available from www.partsguru.com) and will prevent the leakage, or you could simply try opening the top of the coffee machine and removing the tube that runs from the boiler into the steam valve. It has two o-rings that provide the seal where it connects into the steam valve assembly, and if you lubricate these with a food grade silicon lubricant it may fix the problem. My Gaggia is 7 years old so I decided to replace the whole assembly which costs about $50 and that solved the problem completely.

Steam valve is starting to leak when closed. Does the valve use O-rings that can be replaced?


Yes it does, but it might be easier to replace the complete valve, than the pins and the o-rings.

PUFF OF STEAM,CONDENSATION,GRINDS LONGER


The steam and leaking in the upper right corner turned out to be a leaky valve. I may have been able to fix it by just replacing the O-rings. However, the only place I found to get the right rings was in the kit to replace the steam valve assembly.
