I need an instruction manual.


First try the Use and Care Guide search on the Hamilton Beach site: Hamilton Beach Good Thinking. If that does not work becaust the model is too old then do a Google search for Hamilton Beach (your model number) owner's manual (or use and care guide).

How to open a Hamilton Beach 40729 Espresso machine


Easy to open. It is servicable if you have enough ingenuity and can find some generic parts to fit, but certainly not designed with servicability in mind -- the thing was obviously build as a "throw away". There is plenty of space in there for generic parts, but keep safety in mind since you are dealing with electrical parts that get hot and operate under pressure!

First, you need to remove the little plug caps that cover the two screws under the door for the scoop / emergency tamper (sorry, but IMHO a more substantial tamper is a requirement!). I found that the only sane way to remove these caps is with a drill. Carefully drill into the caps. The drill bit will catch, and you can pull the plug right out.

Next you need to deal with the odd screws. They are triangle, so even if you are a serious electronics guy like myself you are probably not going to have that screw bit. No problem though, use a very small flathead screwdriver that fits as closely in one side of the triangle as possible. It will easily remove the screw (and reinsert when you are done)

Once the screws are out, gently pry the top off as indicated by john. The plastic top should have two catches in the front near the edges, and two catches on the sides about mid-way back.

My Hamilton Beach 40729 will not brew! The motor hums and I can get water to pump through the steamer. Please help!


This unit does not use the pump to generate steam, so if the pump is bad (motor works but the pump it drives does not transfer water) you will get steam but no water through the head to the portafilter.

The unit is not user serviceable and at $68 to buy a new one, it is for the most part, disposable.

The pumps on this unit do not like to be run dry as they rely on water as a lubricant. Without water in the reservoir, the pump may fail in a short running time.

I have had similar issues with my 40729.
Assuming that when you turn on the steam switch, the steam light goes on and then off when up to temp:
I have resolved this by filling my steaming pitcher with boiling water, remove the end-cap from the frothing wand and soak the end of the steam pipe in the hot water for several minutes. Then fire up the steam and blow it out. if the obstruction is more serious, then you may need to unplug the machine and run a thin and stiff wire ( like a guitar string ) up through the wand to break up the clog.

This unit uses one heater for both the extraction and the steam, so if you are getting extraction then the heater is good. You may also have either:
  • a bad needle valve in the steam knob on the right.
  • a bad thermostat that regulates the heater temp when you turn on the steam switch.
