Question about Solis Crema SL-70 Espresso Machine

Handle is pushed out

The machine pushes the handle that holds the coffee grounds out and coffee and water explodes everywhere. This is happening almost every time we use the machine..the handle is inserted all the way and this problem occurs wiht the double and single size.

Followup - I finally got a new pressurized basket a couple of weeks ago (the importer was out of them for a long time) and have had no "exploding" problems since.

Are you using the pressurized filter baskets? My 2 1/2-year-old SL70 recently started doing the same thing, and I think I have narrowed the problem down to the filter basket (it works fine with a non-pressurized basket). I've ordered a new pressurized basket. I can't guarantee that this is the answer, but you might try it.

MY Saeco italia has been leaking everytime it pulls a shot from the bottom of the unit. I opened the machine and the steam valve area is dry as with everywhere else. The only part that's wet is the...


it is also possible that the leak came from the pump as well most likely your lines are also clogged up with fine ground coffee past the brewer which stops the water from flowing and causes excess pressure which eventually either busts a water line or makes the pump push the water out past the caseing of the machine. Very time consuming finding the leak as well as replaceing the parts that are broken. If you have any further questions message me back. Thanks

p.s just curious because i ask all customers dealing with coffee and expressor machines what was the grind set to when you ground your coffee?

May be busted, but before you take it to the shop try these few things. 1. Unplug machine for 30 seconds 2. Then plug back in, (lights should still be blinking) Take silver handle that you lift when you put in coffee pods and gently push back handle as far as you can for 3 seconds. This should reset your machine,back to factory settings. To then reset coffee cup settings to your personal taste by: 3. You can adjust the fill of coffee by holding the large coffee cup down for as long as you want to fill it. Try holding the button down for 20secs., next cup of coffee should automatically fill for 20 seconds. Do the same for small coffee side. Hope this works,it has for me; just not sure because of the cold water pumping out issue. good luck

When using the basket for your own coffee - the coffee grounds go everywhere including in the cup. How do you stop that


Try pushing down on the handle while the Keurig is brewing. Mine doesn't seem to push down hard enough on the "make your own" kcup. It just takes a little downward pressure while the water is being forced thru the coffee.

Krups xp4030 wont push espresso thru and when you


I had the same problem. The metal filter is clogged with very finely ground coffee. To clear the filter, boil it in vinegar and let it sit for a few hours. Rinse the filter and run water through it in the machine (no coffee in the filter). I found I had to grind the coffee at the medium setting in order to keep the problem from recurring.

Filter Basket pops open while grinding and brewing


Put the handle to the basket, that holds the coffee grounds toward the front.  If it is not facing front it will pop open.

When the pump is activated by the coffee switch the pressure builds up but no coffee comes out the bottom, hot water leaks over the top of the portafilter and runs down the outside.


Hi there it sounds like the pressurised handle has a blockage in it or your coffee is too finely ground. The handle is spring loaded as well so make sure when you push the handle over to the right that the actual handle comes back to the centre so to open the inside to allow coffee through. If blocked try putting the head of the handle into a solution of descaler.

All the best

I have a cuisinart automatic grind and brew thermal coffee machine. Soemtimes, during brewing, the container holding the grinds pops open and the still brewing coffee pours everywhere.


On mine the door that holds the ground coffee in place at times doesn't latch properly either and then the it will pop loose. I have to close it fairly hard in order to get it to latch and I test the latch by pushing on the door to see if comes open. When properly latched it will only open via the little button on the side, not by jiggling the door.

Water heats but stops perculating


Check the spring under the grounds basket on the pump tube. This is supposed to hold the end of the tube down in the heater well. It should compress when the lid is pushed down on the basket and twisted to lock in under the handles.  I have found a good source of parts for Faberware urns and percolators at goodmans.net. The thermostats and heating elements can be easily replaced and the urn returned to original condition. Rich of Colorado

Filter basket pops open after grinding GROUNDS AND WATER EVERYWHERE!!!!


I had that problem a few times. When the door is open and the basket is removed I pushed in and held the release button while I cleaned that little hook area that holds the pop out tray in place. I just used a paper towel and nicely warm water. Works fine afterwords. I try to clean this at least every week.
