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.

It is possible that the reset connected to the boiler tripped.

Rancilio steam wand loose not working


Rig wand! you mean steam wand?
Take lid off and see if the knob clib connection to the steam valve is come out. Otherwise, possibly the steam valve's portioning washer is hardened and stuck. BUt sound slike shaft is broken or lost connection to the valve

I have a rancillio epoca dual head espresso machine, there are two gages on the front of the machine, steam is coming out of the top gage


You will need to get that manometer changed. Get a hold of a rancilio dealer and tell them you need a steam manometer.

Not getting a good/any froth. (Rancilio Silvia) My steam wand leaks air at the tip so I bought a new one and replaced that, it still leaks air. I don't want to tighten it too much so I won't crack it....


If steam wand leaks at the tip sounds like the steam valve needs to be rebuilt or replaced, because the valve seat is damaged or has mineral buildup keeping it open.

We've had the Rancilio Audrey now for a year and still not have had a perfect cappucino. 1. Milk. We use 3.5 dairy milk, cold before going under spout. 2. What is the middle (steam) button used for? ...


  1. That is the right milk. Use a thermometer with the milk.
  2. The middle button is used for steam. It engages the high themostat for steam.
    1. Slightly open the steam valve
    2. Turn on the middle button
    3. Keep the end of the steam wand slightly above the milk surface (0.5 mm) so the steam incorporates air into the milk. (Takes practice)
    4. Open the steam valve as the boiler heats up. (Takes practice)
    5. When the milk get to 74 C (165 F) immerse the steam wand into the milk and heat to 82 C (185 F)
    6. Turn off the middle button and shut the valve.
  3. For 90 ml of coffee, use 14 gram of ground coffee. The coffee scoop that came with the machine holds 7 grams of ground coffee as it comes out of a grinder (not packed). Tamp the coffee after it is in the sieve.

At the end of initial pressure-up after first turning my Epoca on in the morning, the pressure goes past 'normal' until it blows the escape valve. What is wrong? Thanks. Matt


The vent valve is stuck in the open position, leave the steam wand open, while the machine is heating until you hear it hissing, then close steam wand and machine should heat up properly. Replace the vent valve as soon as possible.

Water will not come through the steam wand


I had the same problem. I took the steam wand off, and checked for steam out of the unit. It was OK, so I stuck a thin wire up through the steam wand and dislodged what look like pieces of a green washer or O-ring.
In short...the wand was plugged.
