Question about Spidem Trevi Digital Plus Coffee Maker

2 Answers

This morning the steam nozzle blew off while steaming milk. I have tried several times to secure it back on and tightening it, but it keeps blowing off when you turn the steam on - dangerous and messy with milk everywhere! Is there a way to secure it back on or would it be broken in some way? It doesn't appear damanged at all, but once it comes loose does it need replacing?

This used to happen to me but now i just make sure the outside and inside of the steam nozzle are rinsed after each use and them firmly pushed back on. Seems to be working fine now we rinse it after every use. Hope it helps.

Wet steam, poor pressure


Have you tried cleaning the steam wand nozzle with a paperclip (or the pin tool mounted in the back door of the unit?

Milk deposits can make their way inside the nozzle and block it, describing the symptoms you're getting.

Jura impressa X7 will no longer pull cleaning fluid, dispense milk or steam


I would like to know more in order to better understand. When any of the steam functions are selected do any errors display? Also, does steam come up through the machine from inside? It could also be that a solenoid valve (electronic valve that can operate flow) may be bad. It almost sounds like the problem you have may be coincidental with the hose incident and now it's a little harder to diagnose.

The steam milk facility in my CVA5060 is not working; the machine tells me to 'clean milk pipework' . It looks from the manual like I should have a specific flask for this; I don't have one. I...


You have clogged milk pipework, likely caused by not rinsing/cleaning the pipework after dispensing milk. This has happened to me a few times and we have had Miele out to fix it. Only they can unscrew the unit to look inside and repair can be expensive. Today, I found a solution I wanted to share!
Remove the front cover off the spigots so you can clearly see the nozzles where the milk runs out. Run a rinsing program on the unit, and it will emit steam and hiss and nothing will come through. That is OK for now. Using a balled up towel, plug the side where you are only getting steam coming through. You are essentially causing pressure to build up in the pipework which will dislodge whatever is blocking the system. Careful, as steam will penetrate the towel as my little burnt finger will tell you. The second time I did it, I pressed the towel into position with a spoon....works like a charm and no burnt fingers. Both sides were blocked for me and now run smoothly. Hope this helps someone ;)

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.

The steam nozzle has broken


Yes you can but it is very hard to get inside the front of the machine if the tube has come off in the front panel, if it has come off one of the solinoids in the right hand side of the machine it is easy to put back on also check that the steam nozzle is not blocked with old milk it will cause the pressure to blow off the tubes

Francis francis milk steamer not operating


Check the end/nozzle of the steam wand, if you open the wand and while getting nothing it is hot, then the nozzle is blocked use a paperclip to clear the hole at the end of tip. If you have done this already and still no steam then it is clogged where the steam valve connects to the boiler.

Plastic "Turbo Frother steam nozzle" blows off metal steam pipe


Pull off entire plastic wand off by unscrewing the top plastic piece. Inside the piece that connects to the screw top you should see two o-ring type spacers. The top one should be hard pastic and the one beneath should be rubber. Take the entire unit apart and clean, making sure to put all pieces back in the way they came out.

To put back on, take the top piece and put it back on the metal stem first then put the rest of the wand back on and gently push it as far up the metal stem as possible and screw back together. If you don't have the rubber spacer this could be the problem since the wand really has nothing grabbing onto the metal stem except for the rubber spacer. If this doesn't work, order another wand:

XP7240 has stopped ectracting milk from canister,just blows steam


Do not push steam nozzle to much on the dispenser. Just pull it back 1mm or something. If pushed to the end there is no ejection and milk is not extraced fro the canister.

Steam Nozzle


I've only had it fly off once.  I think I didn't put it all the way on.  Also make sure you clean the nozzle every time you use the steamer.  Milk will clog the nozzle otherwise.  My maker is right beside the sink and I rinse the nozzle immediately after steaming milk.  I also run it through the dishwasher at least weekly.  (This isn't a substitute for immediate clearing of the nozzle.)   A clogged nozzle will always blow off the end.
