How do you use model 40715 hamilton beach espresso machine? i couldnt get the loose grinds to work so i bought espresso pods and now i dont know how long to wait for it to drip or if im even doing it...

I have this machine and have used it for about a year. Most important is use fresh beans within 15 days of roast, and within 15 minutes of grinding. You cannot get good results from this machine using pre ground coffee, or pods. Second, this machine is terrible with temperature stability. When warmed up it will usually be way too hot. Wait for the machine to warm up (light will come on). Open the steam valve, run the brew pump for 5 to 10 seconds into your cup and turn it off. Shut the steam valve, wait for the light to come back on. Immediately hit the brew button. This procedure will do a nice cooling flush and hit more towards the right temp.
Third, the pressurized basket that comes with this machine just dosen't do the job right. Replace it with a Mr. Coffee double basket, non pressurized and you will see immediately better results.
Last, the screeching steam wand. This machine will give wet steam, all the time. After pulling the shot, hit the steam switch and wait 20-30 seconds, then open the steam valve full to purge water out of the wand. Close the valve, then go to steaming your milk. There is a place about 1/4 inch below the surface that you'll hear only a chhh-chhh sound. Wand too deep, it will screech and wake the neighbors. Too shallow and you'll get sudsy big bubbles. Just find that sweet spot and surf there till you're at 140-150 degrees then turn the valve off. Good luck.

Safety valve cn10 keeps activating about 10 seconds after switch on. any ideas anyone. stafco markus 2 group semi auto

Try this open the steam wand and leave on when turning the machine on, when valve stats hissing with steam close. If that works then the vent valve needs to be replaced, If it blows out hot steam from valve then the pressure stat is not operating properly.

When trying to steam milk, very hot water comes out of the steamer arm and curdles the milks. Additionally no hot water comes out of the opening for the coffee, so no espresso is made. This started...

It seems that your problem is the one mention second that no water come out for coffee. So every time you try to make coffee the boiler is overflow and you have more water from steam tap.
So you have to clean the coffee shower on coffee group head since this might be blocked by dry coffee. Also the coffee solenoid valve could be also blocked from dry coffee and it can be removed and cleaned with a wire brush. It can be also be damage and most posible the solenoid coil burn out so you might need a new solenoid. So I beleive if you solve the coffee group blocked problem then you might have solve also the steam problem,
Good Luck

Saeco Odea Go - Hot water leaks from bottom of machine

That's leaking from the hoses coming out from the boiler,if the machine is new it should be still under warranty, may have to take it back to the service center.When making coffee the lines are under pressure and the water never have a chance to pass through the ground coffee.

Steam blowing out of group head

Were you using cleancaf to descale? If so, it is not a strong enough descaler. Use Dezcal. or a Dezcal cleancaf mixture. The two work great together.

Make sure you get some descaler in the solenoid area by turning on and off the coffee button.

Hope it works out for you.
