Question about Ascaso Steel uno prof Espresso Machine

1 Answer

I have trouble making good foam with the foaming wand that comes with the machine (it had a small hole in the side of it designed to help make microfoam), but when I remove the piece of metail from the foam wand with the hole in it I seem to make good foam. Is it ok to use like this or do Ascaso make wands without the small hole? Thanks Steve

My Gaggia Brera made really nice foam really fast for a while. Now it stopped foaming at all. Does anybody know how to return the foam?


There is a small hole at the top of the steam wand. It is likely blocked preventing air from entering the wand. Poke out any dried milk with a needle and wash thoroughly.

Why doesn't my machine make good quality foam?


Have you tried putting the steam wand just on top of the milk once the milk has warmed enough - this will let some air up the wand and makes good foam.

What can I do if the drainage red light comes on?


In most cases, Its simply the lid switch that has gone bad.
Put your washer on Spin cycle and look for the little plastic peice on your lid that goes into a small opening, if you have this then verify its working by pushing a small screwdriver in the hole, pressing it down.

The washer needs to verify that the lid is closed before it will go into spin mode (Safety for peoplesw hands etc).
If you dont see this then you may have a magnic type switch or one built into the lid itself.
Most local appliance parts stores have this part with a model and make of the washer.

Good Luck!

Jura capressa F7 steam milk problem


You should decalcify, when you steam the milk some what gets through to the steam and the build up of these minerals causes the issue

Need to remove the drip pan under my Kenmore side by side fridge.


Mine is a whirlpool side-by-side ED5GTN which must be the same design as your Kenmore.
There is no way the drip pan will come out without tilting the refrigerator backwards.
The tape is removed, the foam packing, the filter removed, the pan is not flexible enough because the pan broke.
I have worked on this until my hand is bleeding from struggling with this poor design. Custumer service was no help..said, "Well, I don't know."
I'll wait for help to tilt the thing because there is black mold and I want all removed from the bottom of the refrigerator. This design is not only "NOT customer friendly but unhealthy for your home."

Having trouble shampooing


I found this on a website. Hope it helps others...

by Mainelyvacs in: Kirby
  • First a short explanation of how the Kirby shampoo system works: Kirby uses a “Dry Foam” type of shampoo. Basically, it spreads a shampoo foam solution on the surface of your carpet. This foam needs to stay on the surface of the carpet until it is completely dry (usually 1 to 2 hours depending on temperature and humidity) As the foam dries, it soaks up grease and dirt. You then vacuum the carpet and up comes the shampoo residue along with the absorbed dirt and grease. It does a very good job on the surface but will not extract stains from the bottom of the carpet or carpet pad. Several other brands such as Electrolux, Hoover and Koblenz make Carpet Cleaning machines that use the same system.
    So, you’ve read your manual, you’ve removed the carpet cleaning nozzle and the bag assembly from your Kirby, you’ve installed your shampoo tank and carpet shampooing nozzle tray and you start to shampoo but all you get on your carpet is a puddle of soapy water and no foam. Here’s a few things to look for:
  • Make sure you are using a Dry Foam Shampoo(preferably Kirby) and NOT an extraction shampoo, the Rug Doctor shampoo you had left over from your last rental will not work.
  • Make sure you have the correct mixture. If you are using Kirby Dry foam shampoo you simply fill the tank with water and put a tank cap full of shampoo in with the water. You can use other brands of “Dry Foam” shampoo, but the mixture ratio may be different, so read the label first.
  • Don’t reuse last year’s leftover mixture, it’s probably no good.
  • Make sure a family member didn’t pour any leftover mixture back into the empty shampoo bottle - further diluting a mixture will not produce any foam.
  • Don’t use shampoo that’s seen extreme temperatures.
  • Check the tank and make sure that the sponge filter is in place and if it is in place that it is not deteriorated. The sponge filter is located under the tank at the point where you attach the tank to the hole that you removed the bag assembly from.
  • Check the hose that runs from the tank to the nozzle. It should have a screen in the end that attaches to the tank (older models had a cloth screen with a metal retainer, models after 1989 have a 1 piece metal and plastic screen.

Can't get milk to foam


How long have you had the machine? Use a straight pin and poke the opening of the wand. It may be blocked. If the bottom of the wand can be removed, use some pliers, and CAREFULLY remove it, soak it in hot water. Rinse it thoroughly, and replace it back on the machine. If you cannot remove the wand, turn the machine upside down, and check the opening to the wand. It most likely is stopped up. Run vinegar and water through your machine once a week. Calcium build up does the same thing. Good luck! Happy Lattes!

How do you change the batterys in hasbro cosmic catch ball game


The "push" button has a small hole on either side. there is a small screw at the bottom of each hole. Use a small philips head screwdriver. Once you have loosened the screws, this whole "block" of foam will come out of the ball and you will see the battery compartment.

Frothe the milk?


he trick to this is making sure you have steam comming out of the wand and not water. To do this, make sure you get the steam started before you begin. To get a light foam that will not deflate, hold the wand just under the surface of the milk. You should hear a steady, high pitched noise and you should not hear the splatter of bubbles popping on the surface. Popping noises mean that the wand is too high in the milk and your froth will not hold up. A low pitched noise from the cup means that the wand is too far down in the milk. This will heat your milk (for hot chocolate), but will not give you a good foam. Good luck!

Steam wand used to make great foam until just a week ago


The stainless steel cover has a very small hole near the top. The hole allows a venturi action - meaning air molecules are entrained with the steam flow to increase the affect. Milk will clog the hole, but warm water and a guitar string, cheese wire, even a staple - something thin - will work to clean it out.
After frothing either clean the entire stainless steel piece or at least occlude the end at the same time as shooting through some steam. I usually use a kitchen sponge with the abrasive pad attached. The pad helps insulate the heat and provides the necessary resistance to force any milk out the small hole.
Yes, I hate living with this also. In fact I am considering machining a different steam tube assembly.
