Save yourself the trouble, buy a $1.99 frother at Ikea.  Makes the cleaning process easy - that's what I use at home, never used the steam wand on my machine.
To use the frother, just heat up the milk and froth away.  Pretty easy.

SOURCE: Regarding a Krups xp5220 coffe-maker

Hi 3_141644,

If you want to replace the steam wand of your Krups xp5220 coffe-maker, please follow the steps below.

1. Remove the nozzle. In order to remove the nozzle you have to pull the slip ring down and pull straight off. It will requires a bit of force.

2. Please be careful, if you pry one of the 3 tabs which are in a vulnerable position they will break and then the steam wand may not stay on under pressure.

--> Once you understand how to properly remove and install the nozzle, it's not a problem.

Note: the steam wand is extremely fragile, please look at it's sideways and it may break.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Krups Vivo 880. Steam wand is acting as a faucet


The steam valve is not closing. In such a case water finds an east exit from the machine where there is no back pressure.

Repair the steam valve.

Krups XP5240 very loud pop sound while steaming


Take it back to the retailer, tell them about the noise and the water leak. It's under guarantee so you should not be looking for any self help solutions, it's faulty.

I have a Krups Espresso pump XP5240 and as like many people am having problems with the steam wand. The first one disintegrated in the plastic thread area. My new one keeps blowing off when steaming,...


My XP5240 also started blowing the steamer wand off after about 3 months of use, despite fiollowing the Krups cleaning instructions. Here's what I did to fix it.

A: The Problems.
The wand has three holes in the coffee end (center, and on each side). The center hole gets blocked with milk residue. This causes a pressure build up in the wand assembly, and eventually this is enough pressure to overcome the three gripping clips that hold the wand to the nozzle tube. I suspect this was an intentional design for safety. It's unfortunate that it also sprays the user with milk when it lets go.

The second problem is that removing the wand requires that the outer clip retainer ring to be slid down to release the clips. Many users don't realize this and try to pry or twist the wand off. This breaks the clips.

B: The Solution
The wand has to be regularly and throughly cleaned. Just soaking it is not enough. Do it this way:

1. Slide the clip retainer ring down, and then hold the steam tube and gently move the wand straight down. DO NOT try to twist the wand to one side, or you WILL break the clips.

2. Holding the ring, unscrew the coffee nozzle end. The wand separates into three parts: Outer tube, inner steam tube and decorative cylinder.

3. Use a needle or very fine wire (approx 0.4mm) to clear the three holes in the coffee end nozzle.

4. You now need to clear the metal wand tube of milk residue. I found that a 7/64" drill bit was perfect to do this, as it fits snugly in the tube. The amount of gunk removed was surprising.

5. Blow the tube clear from both ends. If it's clean, you will be able to see light through all three holes. If not, go back to step #3.

6. Make sure that there is no milk residue on the steamer tube nozzle where the wand clips on. Milk contains fat, and this is an unwanted lubricant.

After cleaning, my steamer works properly for several days. I also located a 21mm ID O-ring at the local hardware store to hook over the clips. This provides a bit more clip gripping pressure, but will still allow the wand to come off should steam pressure gets excessive.

Why won't my starbucks serina froth milk. Just stopped doing this all of a sudden. I descaled, the little hole in wand isn't blocked. The milk heats but no froth.


This problem developed on my Sirena machine about a week ago. Stopped frothing milk, but still produced lots of steam. In fact, it was splattering milk everywhere, just not producing foam. Cleaned the steam wand (including air intake) and descaled the machine (even though its only 3 months old) to no avail. Called Saeco customer support (1-800-933-7876) and the very helpful rep immediately identified the problem. Inside the Panarello steam wand is a removable plastic tube. The tip of this tube should protrude about 1/8" beyond the end of the steam wand. Mine was not. Using the eraser end of a pencil, I pushed the inner tube downward into position and, voila, I now have froth again.

Super espresso machine leaking


Hi
Your steam manifold needs to be replaced. I still have the original in mine but if you don't cool them down after steaming they will develop hair line cracks and leak after while. To cool it down after steaming push the steam button again, then open the knob and run it till you have a steady stream of water, then close the knob.
The replacement manifolds are black and have held up very well but they have a brass manifold re[placement but you will need new mounting hardware.
