Question about Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
First thing I did which was filled the tank,and let the water run thru machine,basically like have it made a coffee without a coffee capsule,which worked normal. Then I switched on the Steam logo,but there's no steam coming out ,instead there's a humming sound "kuh~Kuh~"almost like there's air or sth in it. I took of the tip of the wand ,and cleaned it,then switched the maestria back on again,tried it, again nothing comes out. Any idea how to fix it ,thanks!

As the espresso is being made, you can steam the milk by opening the valve that goes to the wand. (sometimes there is a "switch")
To steam milk:
-Fill pitcher (or whichever container you want) with milk e**ugh for about 2/3 of your cup. A thermometer would be helpful.
-Place pitcher under the wand and lift it so that only 1/2 inch is under the surface of the milk.
-Open the steam valve. The milk will expand as it heats. Lower the pitcher to maintain the 1/2 inch depth. You should hear a "shushing" sound and have ** splattering.
-When milk is about 150 F (or preferred temp), close the steam valve and wipe the wand with a damp towel or else themilk will cake on the wand.

When I got my X1 (used,) the steamer was clogged. I unscrewed the end of the nozzle, and a big chunk of calcium(?) came out. I had to poke it with some wire with the steamer on. The way I got the end off is: I wrapped it with a leather glove first, then turned it with a pair of pliers. I still managed to scratch it a little bit though. Maybe you can turn it by inserting a needle in the little hole on the side of the nozzle. I've been thinking of using distilled water to avoid the calcium build-up in the future.

Place 1/3 part distilled white vinegar and 2/3 part water into the water reservoir. Turn the machine on and wait for the heat light to go off. Once the heat light goes off, turn the steam vs. water knob to the water drop icon, and turn the main function knob to steam/water. Make sure to have your frothing cup underneath the steam element ready to catch the water. The vinegar/water solution should clear out the calcium that clogs the steam element. Also, remove the cover to the steam element and dip it in a bowl with vinegar for about 5 minutes, and use something like a pipe cleaner to clean out that cover. Then apply vinegar and hot water to a rag and clean the calcium off the shaft of the steam element. Once you are all finished with this, run plain water through the espresso maker on the steam/water setting to clear out the bitter vinegar residue. Now, try again to make espresso and froth it.
Since milk contains calcium, the steam element has to be decalcified more often than a regular coffee maker. The EM-100 is a beautiful machine, but it is definitely high-maintenance - you will probably spend more time cleaning it than making cappuccino, etc.
