We were having the same problem and this worked for us, right from an insert that was included with the manual.

1. Fill tank with water
2. Remove the filter holder
3. open the steam tap
4. press the main switch and the coffee switch at the same time
5. close the steam tap as soon as water begins to flow
6. If after 30 sec. no water comes out repeat the operation.
7. when it starts, draw off 4 cups of water

This worked for us after we had about given up,

Coffee machine steam wand pressure issue


Good question. I have been surprised before today after checking the manual for various gadgets. There are thousands of manuals online which can be searched for if it is missing. We have a bench top water filter fitted. When you have one of those, the difference is so noticeable that you will only want drinking water from there

Ascaso Dream steam wand leak


Hi Emily,
You have 2 issues.
Steam wand leaking while making coffee - This indicates that the seals on the steam tap o rings need replacing.
Coffee pouring over the handle when making coffee - this indicates that the group gasket needs replacing.

Replacing the group gasket is easy takes 10 min
Replacing the o rings on the steam tap may take a little longer..
All you need is a group service kit Ascaso gasket kit Dream Arc Basic

SilviaWhen running wster thru group head to warm up machine, noticed foamy-smelly water. Ran more - now have almost black water with tiny black specs.?


You have huge corrosion and scale in the boiler. Your heating element will be fried soon. Boiler must be opened up and cleaned, element may be salvageable. USE ONLY BOTTLED WATER NEVER EVER TAP.

Kenmore heavy duty 80 model 110. rinse cycle at cold is down to a trickle, and seems to be lessening. Takes hour plus for a full water load if mixed alright flow for warm and hot


Your cold water line is clogged, kinked or the water valve solenoid is not opening all the way. First check the hose, then the screen on the valve for clogs. If none then replace the water valve assembly.

Grouphead not dispensing water


Remove the shower screen and press button to brew, if water flows the the holes in the screw/diffuser is blocked, if water does not flow then the blockage is at the solenoid or within the group head chamber. This problem I have notice when someone brewed without the shower and screw in place.

Automatic astra II pulls a few great shots then error light on


The error light usually comes on when there is no water flow through the group after about 5 - 10 seconds, indicating a clog of some sort. The fact that it happens after two shots, however could indicate an issue with the processor. The problem with the steam wand could also point to a clog situation, especially in the other wand is working. First, try running shots through the problem group with no grounds at all in the portafilter; Say five or six shots if you can to see if you get the error light. Look at the water flow in the process: The water should just pour out of the portafilter. If the water is running freely and you still get the error light, you are probably looking at a processor/sensor problem. If not, it may just be a restriction. Remove the screw from the middle of the group head (the diffuser), and remove the screen and the brass plate and check them for clogging. You really want to wait until the machine is cold before you do so as the parts will be extremely hot. As for the wand, try removing it, and check it for obstruction.
