Question about FrancisFrancis! X1 Espresso Machine
The coffee brews fine but the steam wand is not working. I just cleaned it and water comes through the wand in a good stream and it steamed. A couple of hours after cleaning, the steam wand has stopped steaming again.
When I got my X1 (used,) the steamer was clogged. I unscrewed the end of the nozzle, and a big chunk of calcium(?) came out. I had to poke it with some wire with the steamer on. The way I got the end off is: I wrapped it with a leather glove first, then turned it with a pair of pliers. I still managed to scratch it a little bit though. Maybe you can turn it by inserting a needle in the little hole on the side of the nozzle. I've been thinking of using distilled water to avoid the calcium build-up in the future.
