Steamer/frother leaks and cannot be completely closed. I have been told that I must replace a rubber gasket on the espresso system. Is this correct?

Not a solution but a note. Kitchenaid got sold off to whirlpool and they almost immediately discontinued this model. I had two of them with the same issue, that of leakinghigh pressure lines. I can't even find an appliance repair facility that will touch this model because they can't get repair parts. Spent a lot of money on two espresso machines that don't work.

SOURCE: Kitchenaid Espresso maker no longer dispenses hot water from frother

by frother you mean it puts out steam ? if yes then I need to know how long you hold down the button and have you checked the hose in back to see if it has cracks or is kinked?

Pro Line Kitchenaid appliances have a 2 Year Warranty on them from the date of purchase. Parts for the espresso machine, because they are considered "non-repairable," will be difficult to find. I would contact Kitchenaid Customer Service to see what they could recommend for you.

Their toll-free telephone number is 1-800-541-6390.

Water leaks around the steamer


May be. If you get the machine upside down (switched off) you will find a hole near the steam knob which allows access to a screw. Turn this screw with a flat bladed screwdriver and the knob will come off. There is a gasket (washer) near the end of this know which is the seal. I don't know where you get the seal, but try finding a rubber seal in a gasket kit. This may be the problem.

Filter change


this was absolutely the problem with my Jura Capressa E-8 machine. I followed instructions after changing the filter. I opened tap-machine stated that it was filling system- I closed tap when instruction. The open tap remained on because no water was filling system. I took the frother tip off and opened tap. Water filled system (container under frother). I closed tap without the frother tip. Machine Ready.... (I heated water in microwave for three minutes) I placed the frother tip in there and used a wooden skewer to ensure frother was clear of debris... Worked like a charm!

Gaggia Baby - water leaking from round the edge of main bulkhead


you need to replace the main rubber gasket within the bulkhead. due to heat and use, the gasket cracks and no longer is able to seal the brew head. a new gasket should be part of the warranty but you can purchase one and replace your self, pretty simple.

Steamer


Both tubes must be in the water. If you haven't used the machine for awhile, fill the water canister, turn the espresso maker on and also turn on the delivery switch (the top switch on the EC140). You'll hear the pump and in a second or two water will begin to exit the boiler nozzle. Immediately turn the delivery switch off. Wait for the "OK" light to come on. Press the "Steam" switch (the middle switch on the EC140, place an empty cup under the frother and turn the steam control knob on top in the counterclockwise direction. Steam will come from the frother. Be very careful to avoid contact with this steam.

Breville espresso machine 800 ES


I have the same problem. It appears to be caused by a worn steam wand gasket that's inside the steam wand assembly which can be unscrewed from the Breville machine. This was confirmed by the folks at Breville. They referred me to www.thegourmetdepotco.com. That website does not sell the steam wand gasket separately. They sell "Frother Assembly MOdel #800ESXL-250" for $14.95. With tax ($1.42) and shipping via USPS ($5.65), the total is $22.02. A very high price for the failure of a simple plastic washer, but it beats buying a new machine!

Try opening the frothing valve by turning the dial and force water through it instead of steam by pressing the middle, coffee button. You may be experiencing vapor lock. Once the water comes through the steamer valve, turn the steamer knob off and release the coffee button. Then try the steamer button with the steamer dial open. This may do the trick.

Leaking system frother


Is the frothing wand completely screwed in? You can actually unscrew it (or partially unscrew it) by moving it slightly when you're cleaning it. Twist the black tip, at the very bottom, and you'll find that you can screw it on & off. Make sure it is screwed on tightly & it shouldn't leak.
