Question about Krups Caffe Duomo 985-42 Espresso & Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Steamer side not working properly.

is there supposed to be a rubber ring on the lid to help force the steam out through the steamer? Because mine is bubbling up out of the top, and I think there used to be a rubber ring, but can't remember.

My compact steamer does not let the steam out when I press the black release button help?

I examined mine. There is literally NO hole in the steam wand for the steam to exit. It's a wonder the thing didn't blow up. Take it back and be glad you still have your face.

Steam comes out the filler cap on the water base on my Rowenta DG5030

WIre brush the caps screw threads and replace the O Ring ASAP.
DOn't use the iron until you get a new O ring and they need to be the orange/red rubber ones they are able to withstand the hot steam black o rings at home depot won't last.

Cuckoo crp-hd1054f , steam comes out from sides when cooking

Mine was the same after I got it for 3 years the top lid round rubber was degraded. I guess you need to replace the rubers or the whole top lid. The part might be available from cuckoo customer service.

I cant replace to lid back on my timex watch properly.its a women's watch.stainless steel there anything that im supposed to do to click it into place properly?

I had the same problem and tried everything. Here was my solution. Use a double-sided 2" rubber mallet. (Below is a photo of a similiar mallet.) Be sure to use caution while pressing with force. There is always the danger of cracking the crystal, however, my solution worked perfectly for me. I hope it does for you, too. Keep in mind that some watch backs screw on with a special tool, but if you snapped yours off, it should snap back on.
sandyjd.jpgStart by lying the watch, crystal side down, on a vinyl padded notebook. Also make sure you have it aligned properly with the stem.
  1. Place one of the rubber mallet heads over the watch back.
  2. With all your force, push down on the other end of the mallet's head.
  3. Voila, you should hear a slight pop and the back will again be secure on the watch.
Hope this helps and you are as successful as I was with this tip.

How strong should the output for the cappucino/ latte steamer? Mine just sort of dribbles the steamed milk. Thanks

When steaming the milk/cream make sure to hold the rubber nozzle to the very bottom of the cup and also make sure you are leaving enough water to produce the steam after brewing a cup of espresso. Also you'll want to check the breather tube that sticks up from the nozzle and make sure it is free of buildup.When the steamer is operating correctly it should produce a loud growling sound.

My Delonghi Prima Donna won't dispense milk only steam.

I've just had the same thing happen to me today. The one thing I noticed was there is a broken rubber ring which appears to have fallen from around the milk spout.

I'm off to the Service Centre tomorrow so will hopefully have some good news shortly...

Mine sucks because it DOESN'T ****.

First check that the dial on the side of your steamer is set to carpet for carpet and tools for tools, I know this is simple.

Now make sure that the water tank is down properly. Sometimes the little rubber seals on the bottom of the water take pulls off and gets stuck in the base of the machine. Make sure you have the rubber seals on the bottom of the tank before you put the water tank onto the machine.

I have a clogged Shark super steamer.

I have had a Shark Steam Mop for about 8 months now & all of a sudden it stopped producing steam. I was using it this past weekend & it produced steam as usual then all at once it stopped. When I push down on the handle to make the steam, it does nothing. No sound or steam. I have always used distilled water as well. Any ideas? Could it be clogged. The unit doesn't appear to get very warm now either. Thanks!

Heats up and produces steam but the release button does not open the flow of steam.

To remedy this, I did the following:
1) Removed screws from: a) Lower area of handle (1 screw), b) Top of steamer, under round rubber flap around fill hole (2 screws), c) Front of steamer where nozzles attach (2 screws)
2) Removed back of handle, top of steamer, front of steamer where nozzles attach 
3) Once all parts are removed, you can see a brass button that is pushed by the trigger
4) Using a needle-nose pliers, grasp and rotate the button several times in both directions (you may hear it cranking against the interior spring). Do this until it turns fairly easily with the pliers.
5) Once this is done, you fill find that the brass button can be very slightly depressed with a bit of force. You may also need/want to unfold a large paper clip to push into the nozzle hole to help unsticking the brass button (not sure if that helped in my case, but it was something I tried along the way). When the brass button moves in and out (again, it won't move much), the steam release mechanism is unstuck!
6) Reassemble all parts (everything snaps back neatly into place).
This worked for my unit!
