No steam - steam jet does not heat

I have a new Livietta T2 and everything works fine except the Steam Jet/Diffuser. It only leaks cold water and does not get hot nor create steam. Any ideas? Thanks, AT

    I did that, but it still does not get hot. Is there a reset button or a switch that needs to be turned on?

1. Turn off and unplug the machine.
2. Wait 2 hours.
3. Remove the water tank.
4. Remove the top cover. (Two screws in the top)
5. Remove the back/side cover. (Two screws along the top crimp)
6. Locate the thermocouple.
6.a The thermocouple is on the left side of the machine, on the back side of the heater block. It's a small pin with a plastic knob on it.
7. Press the pin on the thermocouple in.
7.a. If the thermocouple is not out, pull it out and press it back in.

Will I still get coffee if the pump is broken. The machine is leaking staem and water underneath and I beleive it is the staem valve but a 'dodgy' coffee machine repairman is telling me it is the...


I am an expert espresso certified man. First of all your repair man is wrong. Let me explain. If you are getting steam at all, then your pump is not broken. This is the way it works, you have water in your machine, it goes into a area where it heats the water by heating elements, then as it heats it builds pressure by air and heat. The machine has a water pump in it, that operates by of course electricity, it pumps the water that is heated by the elements through the machine to of course make shots of espresso. The steam part is simular as it goes in a area, the gets hot and produces steam from the water, like a iron would of press kind of method. THE MACHINE will not make coffee or steam if pump is not working. If you turn machine on, and hear it humming or running, when trying to make a cup, then motor is running, if you turn it on and try to make a cup of coffee or steam and hear nothing at all, then pump is not working. If your machine is leaking under machine from from the steam valve, means it would not do that if pump is not working. Sense it is leaking, this tells me it is clogged. Most likely your need your machine cleaned good, that means descaled. Clean hoses, use small needle to poke in end of steam wand to clean out good jet air holes and basket screen. Find your manual, and it should tell you how to properly clean your machine, and even can use can of compressed air, that you can spray in hoses. It appears to be it is clogged, and when the pump or lines are clogged , it will back up like a clogged toilet and flood area around base and underneath. This whole problem is a cleaning problem, do to a clog or build up. I hope this. PS no if you pump is out or clogged, you would not get coffee as it need to the pump to work (unclogged) to push the water through the heads. Thanks Mike

The steam wand and hot water valve work fine. Can't get any water out of the group head to make espresso. Pump sounds like it is working but no water comes out.

The coffee group is equiped with a jet and jet filer which is probaly blocked from dirt or scale. Need to be removed and clean up. Consider that the coffe solenoid valve and shower are clean from any dry coffee

No steam will come out of the steam wands. Also no water will come out of the water jet. Shots can be run normally, and everything else seems to be running fine.

Make sure you have the control knob turned the whole way to where it needs to be. You should do the steaming before the brewing, so you have enough water to make the steam. If this isn't the issue, run a mix of 1/2 water, 1/2 white vinegar through the machine. Run 2 or 3 more cycles of plain water to rinse the vinegar out. If the unit was clogged, this will melt the residue away.

If it leaks from the steam wand then you need to get a new steam valve assembly. For the heat you will have to open the machine it is possible that the steam boiler is damaged or that the thermostat on there is bad, use an ohmsmeter to check thermostats and element. There are 2 screws in the grinder, 2 behind the water tank and about 2 or 3 in the front behind the door.

Water is leaking, while the machine heats water for steaming

The steam valve tap rod needs to be replaced, or check machine if it has a plastic steam valve, Gaggia designed a new Stainless steel steam valve for the compact machine.

Espresso machine loses steam than recovers in minutes

It sounds like a heating element issue. Those elements look like a single unit but are actually made up of 2 or 3 independent heating coils - one may not be working. So, you're only getting 1/2 to 2/3 heating capacity, which isn't noticeable until the machine is under heavy steam load.

Steam jet in Saeco Classico

Try Descaling your machine. A lot of times calcium will form on the inside of the boilers and on the heating elements in espresso machines causing heat transfer issue and clogged lines.

If the heating element cannot transfer enough heat fast enough then your steam will run out.

If you need a good descaler or descaling instruction visit
