SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: My expresso machine won't steam. Just suddenly stopped. Have tried running vinegar through system, but still won't run through steamer.

Hi, I dont know which brand machine you have, but I should be able to work out what is wrong. If your machine has a press button or turn knob steam tap, then it could be the solenoid which opens the steam flow. The solenoid itself maybe stuck or the coil maybe faulty. You just need to work back from the steam arm to work out which solenoid it is. It should make a clicking sound when activated. Commercial machine solenoids canbe disassembled and cleaned. If its a domestic machine, then just replace the solenoid. Also, some machines have a micro switch that activates the steam valve. If its faulty, then replace it.
If its a domestic machine you have, then another thing that maybe at fault, and that is the thermoblock (small boiler). If it doesn't heat up then no steam canbe made. The thermoblock has an element inside, and they can not be replaced. You have to replace the whole thermoblock. It can be easily checked with a multi meter to see if the circuit is broken. On some thermoblocks, is a thermostat or overload sensor. It is also easily checked with a meter.
So lets break it down a) solenid
b) micro switch
c) Thermoblock
d) thermostat/ thermol overload
Hope this has help you. Id be looking towards the thermoblock. Dazza

Where to buy a new switch for Isomac Tea Espresso machine


Not sure where you are located, but here in Australia service agents for Isomac are charging ridicules prices for the switch - $40 ~ 50! I ended up buying one from a local electronic parts supply chain called Jaycar.
Cost me around $10

Suddenly stopped frothing..pretty much immidiately boils the milk to that yucky bubbly stuff...also the expresso part suddenly doesn't work well...drips out and doesn't give me that nice rich top...


did you wait for the red lamp to switch on?..temperature is too low, give time to warm up! to have the rich top you need to have the right coffe blend and grind, the right pressure and temperature, press well into the filter and you will obtain a decent espresso, otherwise to have a better one invest 2000 for a professional coffee maker.

I have just purchased an ISOMAC TEA and I have followed the instrution however it now wont fill up and start to boil even though I have pulled the lever out and allowed the water to flow


Some times brand new machine if they stay for months not in use then the volumetric water pressure pump is stuck. And you should remove it from the motor rotate it manualy ven use a litle lubricunt oil and put it back again then the pump can work perfect for many years.

I have an isomac millenium which stops working after being warmed up for more than 15 minutes. It would have to cool down completely before I could turn it on and get the green light to turn on again....


HI
There are a few things that will cause this.
Your SSR (solid state relay) is bad. Its on the bottom of the machine inside. If you can see a green light on it , its probably OK.
You could have a thermal fuse on the side of the boiler by the heating element that is bad.
You have checked that your water tank switch is working. Push down on the water tanks to see if your lights come on.
Your heating element is bad.
Your Computer is bad.
