"level steam probe" occurs when it takes more than two minutes to fill the water in the steam boiler. The easiest solution is low water pressure to the machine. Does it have a water filter? replacing it will probably help. Other problems could be the fill valve is not opening fully and or scaled water lines going to the steam boiler. The first thing I would do is activate the hot water tap and look at the pressure. If the water is coming out slow then I know its a restriction to the machine.

I have a Shaerer Ambiante Espresso Machine that is giving the "select beverage, heating steam" error message. What does this mean.


Please descale the machine. Make sure you are using authentic descaling product. There are many unscrupulous products labeled as descaler but contain Baking soda only.

My shaerer machine (ambiente) is giving error, selection locked, heating steam. Need help. Thanks.


This is quite common on steam boiler when the level probe is not reached within a specific period of time. Reason is due to limescale buildup which restricts water flow...
You need to remove and descale the fill pipe to the steam boiler. If its very badly blocked, you can drill out the blockage with a 7/8mm drill bit and then leave it soak in descaling solution until its clear and you can blow through it. Also you will find a small restrictor between fittings somewhere back from the fill pipe (between the fill pipe and the fill valve). This is a small disc shape with a 0.8mm bore in the centre, you'll need to check that this is clear also, they are notorious for blocking up due to small size. You can clear this using some very fine wire or if you have the Schaerer expander baffle pen. Be careful not to lose this restrictor when loosening the brass fittings as it is extremely difficult to find if you drop it into the machine. Good luck

Water shoots out of steam valve and can't make espresso


Samantha,

The steam function and the expresso use the same elements to create the steam but the valves will direct the steam to the expresso unit or the steam arm. Most likely you have a faulty valve. In most cases the valve will not open until the pressure gets to the right level. If you are just getting hot water out of the steam arm instead of steam via the expresso unit it most likely means that the valve is faulty. The valves can be replaced but is not easy. You will need to have the unit serviced or you could try to replace the valves. Make sure the flow meter is working before you replace the valves. You can check the operation of the flow meter by running the hot water cycle and making sure that you get the right amount of hot water. Good luck!

We got a gagia expresso color machine recently. We used it for a week and now the machine is not is not dispensing expresso. The machine makes sound but no expresso comes out. The tank has enough water....


Your are propably need to prime the machine. This mean that air blocked in the machine and need to get out and fill all pipe system with water.
To do this you need to warm up the machine and turn the hot water knob so you will get one cup of hot water from the steam wand. After that try to get some water from the coffee head without any coffee in the filter handle. Now the machine is ready for coffee again. You will need to prime the machine very often so try to remember the procedure. This will happen again usually after you use the steam process and this normal for your machine.

Hi Bill
What happens when you do a tea ? (hot water only, NOT the steam button) do you also get little water ?
The fact that you are getting steam is good as there are 2 heating systems in the unit.
Have you ran the descaling recently (if you do not use filter ) ?
If you have or use a filter the problem is likely to be at the rear of the machine, however the back contents all the power and you will need to be happy to do some stripping down of the machine,
In the back you have the pump, valves, heater etc.
I am just about to draw up a flow chart of the water system inside the machine and have it published online (couple of days).
Are you happy to strip machine down ?

I have a thermoplan espresso machine and low water level in steam boiler message is coming up?


Problems with level on the CTS-2 Thermoplan espresso machine? Clean your probes. Make sure your steam boiler has a pressure of zero before you do this. It's best to have the boiler cold before you start. Remove both probes and clean them. Usually sand paper works. Use 1/4 copper tubing and bend it. Scratch the inside of the tank multiple times to remove the scale from the inside of the tank on that spot. This helps with grounding and the level system. This level error could also be related to a lack of water flow to the steam module or a scale problem at the inlet of the boiler. Sometimes the level board is bad or the water pump.. Also, the fuse may have blown in the the power drawer. Pray it's that! Contact lattefarms@yahoo.com for help or parts as we have overstocked. Good luck!
