Question about Estro Barista Athena
I just moved this to my office and within the first couple shots, it's acting as if it's clogged and is only spitting out a little bit until it sounds like it's backing up!
There is a tiny plastic one-way valve in the brass tube on the pump under the top cover that get calcified and stuck when not in use.
A good pump will fill the tubes in 2 seconds. Lay all your parts slowly and carefully in order during disassembly.
The brass tube with the valve in it unscrews from the angle fitting. Press the little plastic white tab to release rubber motor mount and slide the pump out. Yes it is kind of a technical repair. Unplug unit before starting. I used a toothpick to get the valve out after disassembling the pump and its hoses.
