you could try to run some vinegar through the machine and it may clear the tubes. you will need a few runs of water through after to clear the machine though.

There is a water button you need to push. It has a water drop on it. This will clear the ventilate message.

I can't get water through my Cafe Retro machine

I ruined one Cafe Retro that way, but I managed to fix a second one, here is how: the worst scale tends to build near the exit filter. If poking holes in it with a needle does not work, you need to unscrew that filter.
(1) turn the machine upside down (2) remove the bottom panel by unscrewing the feet (3) remove the central bolt that hold the filter using a special 'snake eyes' 2-pin screwdriver. Since it is hard to find and expensive I made one myself by filing an old screwdriver. I had to use extreme force to loosen the bolt (I enlarged the holes using a small drill, and used a spanner to get more leverage on the screwdriver). (3) once the bolt comes off, remove the dirt that built underneath, and thoroughly clean the filter holes. I used white vinegar and a toothbrush. (4) reassemble the device and run a commercial descaler through it. It's a great machine but poorly designed with respect to scale buildup, now I descale it very often.

Why is my cafe retro espressione not making espresso? It look like the water is pumping up but not draining into the cup! Thanks

You need to descale it. step 1: run some white vinegar through it. step 2: use a commercial descling product (more effective than vinegar). Step 3: if the water flow is completely blocked by scale you need to un screw the exit filter by tipping the machine upside down. Then, remove the scale that built up under the filter, and clean the filter holes. Reassmeble the device and run a descaler through it.

I'm disassembling my cafe retro( will not heat up) and I cannot figure out how to remove the frothing handle.

try pulling the lever along its axis by inserting a blade between its hub and the shiny ring that connects it to the machine body (it will dent the ring because it is made of soft plastic). Then you need to find out how to unscrew the axis in order to allow the casing to slide out.
