Question about Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
Hi, I have a Syntia sup 037r, and the steam wand is not providing enough strength to froth my milk. I descaled the machine yesterday, and it worked fine for about two cups of coffee. I have flow, but the steam starts very strong, then peters out. Should I descale again?

Hello, I have been experienceing the same problem since I bought this thing. I used to have the classic Gaggia until it died after 15 years. however, when I went to this one it just didn't function the same.I was having water leaks come from the group assy so I replaced the group valve assy which I saw a diffrence and it functioned properly for a few days, then It was acting up again. No steam to froth and water bypassing the group assy... I then removed the valve assy again and saw it was somewhat clogged of mineral deposits.I cleaned it and after a few days once again it wasn't frothing as it should. Yesterday I completely tore this thing apart but couldn't figure out how to remove the steam valve assy. Does anyone have any ideas?? I removed the 2 screws and it won't move. OH BEFORE I FORGET!!! It was working fine the other day and while I was in the middle of frothing, it suddenly went to half pressure.... ANY IDEAS?? Thank you in advance....

Sounds to me like there's a leaking gasket or joint somewhere in the frothing system. Your first bet is to check around the parts you replaced - did a gasket get squeezed or seated incorrectly? If so, it'll cause a pressure leak that will keep the frothing minimized. You'll still get the mixes (as you said) but they won't be frothed as they should because the pressure is leaking out along the way. Another idea would be to inspect the nozzle itself for a crack or damage - if that's the case, it'd cause the failure just the same as a leaking gasket could. Check around the parts you've replaced or adjusted first, since you know there was work performed, and that means there's always the chance that something was inadvertently missed, damaged, or (in the case of a gasket) not seated quite right.

If you wait too long after making the coffee, you will not have enough water left to make steam. Try to steam the milk immediatels after the coffee loses pressure.

clear problem from scale builds up in the boiler. The scale layer is acting as
an insulation layer which is reducing the efficiency of the heating element to
the boiler and also reducing the water capacity thus also the steam production
should first try to de-scale your machine three four times with intervals of
three days from each de-scale. Try also to perform the de-scale very slowly
like when you will flash the water solution from the water reservoir take about
30 minutes why drawing a coffee cup every five minutes. With this way you have
very good chance to remove a lot of scale and you machine heating efficiency to
be increased. If after the above procedure you have no difference then you need
a new boiler which is one unit with elements and sensor.
