Why is water leaking from pressure release valve?


there can be two reasons I can think of that water drips from that valve :
1: thermostat for boiler is defective and not keeping boiler at proper temperature
2: minerals in water deposited inside valve and keep it from sealing off well

Astoria Divina SAE/2N 2 heads. What would make the spout in between the heads be only cold water and the water level gauge shows all the way at the top of the glass?


If by spout you mean tea valve, it could be that the economizer mixing solenoid valve is set to deliver more cold water when mixing. As for the level the silver probe on boiler.

I replaced the pump and it's working, however, when I turned on the machine and the boiler came up, there's a stream of pressured steam coming out of releasing through the top of the machine. Any id


Hopefully, your pressure gauge is working, and if it is at 1.2 bar or so, then you have a failed anti-suction valve or boiler safety valve.
The ASV is the smaller fitting; it might be stuck, so you could try tapping the little button. The boiler safety valve is another matter - it will open at some point past 1.8 bar, which means the pressurestat is shot or its adjustment has been tampered with.

It's most likely the ASV - they do get stuck open as well as closed...

Pump intermitently turns on for 1 second when not busy


It is the automatic water level control kicking in due to turbulence in the boiler, but if the machine is neglected, the AWC probe is encrusted with scale, and must be cleaned or replaced.

Gloria two group Astoria was shooting steam the other morning we turned it off what could this be from?


Where is the steam coming from, if its from the top, then the problem is the vent valve or the safety valve, if it is the safety then the pressure stat needs to be replaced because it might be damaged or blocked at the tube that connects it to the boiler.

My 2 group astoria over steams from top of boiler.it warms up then in about half hr steam shoots out at the preasure valve doicky do i need a new one of those thanks greg


The pressure releive valve is pre-factory set to open if the pressure in boiler reach between 1.6 to 1.8 bars.
So either you have the presure switch (presostat) not working normal which supose to switch off the electrical element at 1.2 to 1.3 bars.
So look at the presure gauge at which presure the presure releive valve open and releive the steam out from boiler if it shown more than 1.5 bar the you need to check the presure switch since it does not switch off the heating element.
If the presure releive valve open below 1.5 bar then you need to replace the releive valve.
Good Luck

How do I program an astoria SAE-2 espresso machine?


Look behind the right steam valve, you will have to remove the front top panel, there might be a small toggle switch, note the position. If switch is not there then it is on the black CPU box. Press the program/stop button if all lights come on move forward if not then move the toggle switch to opposite side and press program button.
When all four lights are on press a button when you get the desired volume press stop, continue until buttons are programed then move toggle back to original lock position.

Astoria SAE 1 trickle of water from hot water faucet


Some models have an economiser valve, which mixes hot water from boiler with cold from inlet line, that could be closed or obstructed. The line from the boiler to the solenoid or the pipe inside the boiler could be blocked.

Boiler pressure gauge should be showing in the green zone which should get you 195+ degrees.
