Espresso Flow Problems

I have been using my Dualit espresso machine for about 6 months now and it has been working great till about 3 weeks ago. The espresso machine has little flow through the basket. I have tried the vinegar trick and the professional cleaning solution. The strange thing involved is that the pump seems to have gone bad. The flow starts out strong as usual then the machine gets quieter and the flow slows for a few seconds. Then back to a good flow and then slows. I am using pre-ground Illy espresso and up until now I haven't had a problem with it. Where would be the best place to take the machine? Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Thanks from Lexington, KY

Re: Espresso Flow Problems

You can also get cleaning products to remove Coffee Oil buid up from: or Dezcal. Descaling will not help this problem.
Take the brew head screen along with the filter basket and soak.
A coffee shop willl typically clean the brew head screen every night.

Re: Espresso Flow Problems

Thanks a lot 20pence! - i removed the disc as described, cleaned it and this solved the coffee flow problem - I also had a problem with hot water coming down the steam pipe even when the valve was closed - presumably the disc was so clogged, the water was forced back down there. After cleaning the disc this does not happen - thanks again - good advice

Steam wand used to make great foam until just a week ago

The stainless steel cover has a very small hole near the top. The hole allows a venturi action - meaning air molecules are entrained with the steam flow to increase the affect. Milk will clog the hole, but warm water and a guitar string, cheese wire, even a staple - something thin - will work to clean it out.
After frothing either clean the entire stainless steel piece or at least occlude the end at the same time as shooting through some steam. I usually use a kitchen sponge with the abrasive pad attached. The pad helps insulate the heat and provides the necessary resistance to force any milk out the small hole.
Yes, I hate living with this also. In fact I am considering machining a different steam tube assembly.
