Question about Espressione Retro 1385 Espresso Machine
Espressione Retro has worked beautifully for a year, but now after sitting unused for 2 months while I was away from home, very little water will come through the head when I attempt to make coffee. Tried the steam wand (to perhaps prime the pump and determine whether or not it draws water) and that seems to work as normal,. The Machine just doesn't get very much pressure of volume of water through the head. Also can't see how to remove the shower head to clean and check for clogs at that end of the system. Help?
I had the same problem with mine. unfortunatly you will need a special tool to remove the diffuser head. It' a very small spanner wrench that turns the special screw. I was able to make a spanner out of a screwdriver, but I'm a toolmaker by trade. Your best bet is to have it done by a qualified repair service. Also, if you damage the screw, it's imposible to get parts from them.
