Boiler not cutting out

The boiler does not cut out after the taps have been turned off. Steam pressure is builds, then when you turn on a tap there is a heavy flow of steam coming from the hot tap. In the meantime I am switching off the boiler to stop the steam pressure building up. Is this a thermostat problem or is the boiler fu... em broken

Why no steam.Sunbeam 6910 cafe series. Turned on steam wand this morning and all I heard was a sigh, a feint try to deliver steam but not successful. Very little pump noise / action almost non-existent....


Hi,

This could be 1 of many issues, usually the Steam pump (black or blue) is corroded and no longer vibrating correctly, the pump could be blocked, the pipe work after pump but before boiler could be blocked, the steam boiler could be blocked, the pipe work after steam boiler but before the steam tap could be blocked, the steam tap could be blocked, and also the milk nozzle could be blocked, if you feel competent to take it apart, it is easy to fix but if not take the machine to local service agent.

How do I get the boiler on my rowenta steam generator to fill? I was given this model.


You should only use distiller water in the steamer. Never ever use tap water! This is what caused lime and scale build up.
Since it's to late, you have nothing to loose by trying this to descale the unit:

Put up to one cup of white vinegar into the reservoir. Fill 3/4 of the way with water. Turn unit on and let it heat up, but DO NOT RUN STEAM THROUGH THE LINE. Once heated up, turn unit off and let it set for hours. Drain and rinse well. Then run a water only batch through the steam cycle. There are companies that sell special de scaling solutions. But hopefully, the vinegar will work.

The problem:
The water level in the steam boiler is too high. This water will sputter as it boils quickly when the steam tap is turned on to full and if the level is too high it will enter the steam exit pipe.

How to fix it:
Open the cover and inspect the steam boiler (this is the large one). It has two probes one is a temperature probe and leads to the micro-controller do not touch this.

The other sensor is the water level sensor. This appears as a stainless tube inserted into a gland type compression fitting.

The problem is that when the boiler is pressurised this sensor may be pushed out.

Obviously this alters the water level (it rises).

The cure is simple. Push on the tube until it is all the way down (or to your liking). Since it came out it should go back in.
You can untighten the the gland lock nut if it does not move (with boiler depressurised).
Tighten the lock nut just enough to hold the tube from popping out again.
Now switch on and wait to for pressure. Open the hot water to drain the boiler enough to cause the auto refill to start (and close it).
When it stops filling the water should be at the correct level (or at least a lower level)
Now open the steam tap and clear excess water.
Dry steam should be flowing.

We needed to turn the water off at the stopcock to repair a tap and for safety we turned the boiler from all day to off. when we turned the water on again the boiler was off completely. what do we need to...


Hi the temperature control on the boiler should start the boiler as soon as you restore power to it. I don't know if you have a automatic ignition module or a standing pilot. If it is a standing pilot, make sure it is lite.You should have a temperature gauge telling you the water temp., and if it was off all day I am sure it is very cool. Do you have a drain valve on the front bottom of this boiler? If so, and you have a floor drain, turn it on as you may have gotten air in the system causing it not to fire up. If not, open all outside hose bibs/faucets and indoor faucets and let them run for awhile. If the water was drained out from the boiler to repair this tap, its off on its low pressure shut off switch. This is a safety. After bleeding any dirt or air from the system, make sure that you hear the boiler filling up with water. Once it reaches its low pressure cut off, it will fire up and start to heat the water. I don't know how large it is, but it may take some time to reach its cut out switch before it will fire again. Please keep me posted in the comment box. Please rate me on my help to you, and I thank you for this.

My shaerer expresso machine (ambiente) is giving error, level steam probe, when this happens it will not steam. This problem does not happen all the time and can be cleared by shuting machine off then...


"level steam probe" occurs when it takes more than two minutes to fill the water in the steam boiler. The easiest solution is low water pressure to the machine. Does it have a water filter? replacing it will probably help. Other problems could be the fill valve is not opening fully and or scaled water lines going to the steam boiler. The first thing I would do is activate the hot water tap and look at the pressure. If the water is coming out slow then I know its a restriction to the machine.

Repressurise Potterton Performa 24 boiler


hope this is helpful. On my potterton 24 combi boiler it is the valve that sits the lowest, with a slight indent in the black tap. if you turn this for a short period you will hear a hiss and the pressure will quickly build to the desired pressure, when you can them turn the tap back off.
