Dualit espresso machine

We have a Dualit espresso machine which had a blocked steamer nozzle. I descaled it but ever since, the machine has been leaking where the reservoir fits into the casing and the mechanism which caused the water to feed through the machine when switched on now opens the 'valve' thus making the water drip out of the machine on to the work surface whether switched on or off. This was fine before I descaled it. The steamer is working perfectly though!

    I have the same problem if you mean when you try to make an espresso, it leaks out of the bottom where the water container meets the machine?  Have you gotten a fix?

How can I fix the steamer on my coffee machine


Have you tried descaling the machine? You can get a descaler in the super market. That works for me.

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.

First check the nozzle at the end of the steam wand, if you have hot water for coffee then you should have something coming out of the steam wand. If the wand is not blocked and the pressure is low then the thermostat might need to be replaced.

Hi, my 4 year old gaggia classic coffee machine's steamer no longer works. The coffee bit still works fine, but when i twist the knob to let the steam through, nothing happens. Can this be fixed easily?


It could be that the nozzle is blocked, and or the steam valve is blocked. Try descaling machine, if that does not help then you might have to remove steam valve to make sure it is not blocked.

Steam nozzle not working


Check the end of the steam valve, if that is not blocked, check where the wand connects to the valve, on some models they inserted a teflon piece that was supposed to hep the machine with steaming but that gets blocked, remove and throw away.

I have an 889 with the same leak problem. This happened after I descaled it. The water leaks from the small hole on the base at the back of the machine, directly below the reservoir. It must need a new...


Most likely you have developed a leak where the pump joins with the boiler. If you put descale chemicals in the reservoir then they may have been baked into the boiler and the backpressure has either ruptured or unseated the tube that leads into the boiler.

This is not a repair for amateurs.

STEAMER NOT WORKING - Hi my francis coffee machine is having problems with steaming.  Everything else works apart from getting steam/froth.  I have descaled it lots but still not working.  What can I do?


Hi again, I looked at some other posts on this site and tried soaking the steam wand in a cup of boiling water with a cap of vinegar in it.   I left it about 20 minutes and it worked very well.   My problem was just that the wand was blocked with dried milk on the inside.  I'll make sure to run water through after steaming milk in future .....
