Question about Astoria Argenta AEP/JUN Coffee Maker, Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Older machine needs repair

The youth group at our church has inherited an Astoria Model SAE/1N/JUN it will steam the milk but it will not work for the espresso. Also, it always registers that it has pressure in the espresso side even when it is turned off. Is there a manual we can get so we can check into what’s wrong, or how can we deal with a machine that is so old on a limited budget?

When you press the dispense button does the needle on the dispensing pressure gauge move up to the green area? If so, most likely your group head solenoid valve is bad. It's located behind the back splash. It's a small black box connected to a metal tube just behind the group head. They cost around $70.

If the needle doesn't move it could either be your pump or motor. Now you're in the $200 range.

Gloria two group Astoria was shooting steam the other morning we turned it off what could this be from?


Where is the steam coming from, if its from the top, then the problem is the vent valve or the safety valve, if it is the safety then the pressure stat needs to be replaced because it might be damaged or blocked at the tube that connects it to the boiler.

Steam smells odd and affects milk taste.


The boiler is contaminated with milk and needs to be descaled and cleaned.

My 2 group astoria over steams from top of boiler.it warms up then in about half hr steam shoots out at the preasure valve doicky do i need a new one of those thanks greg


The pressure releive valve is pre-factory set to open if the pressure in boiler reach between 1.6 to 1.8 bars.
So either you have the presure switch (presostat) not working normal which supose to switch off the electrical element at 1.2 to 1.3 bars.
So look at the presure gauge at which presure the presure releive valve open and releive the steam out from boiler if it shown more than 1.5 bar the you need to check the presure switch since it does not switch off the heating element.
If the presure releive valve open below 1.5 bar then you need to replace the releive valve.
Good Luck

We Have an Astoria SAE 2 Group and am looking to find the NSF label location on the machine. If i can't find that, how can I show health dept that it is NSF certified ?


On the right side of the machine next to the serial number is the most likely spot for the NSF sticker or tag depending on the model of the machine it may only have an ETL listing.

Will not dispense water


If you're pump is working and your needle shows around 9 bars when running, most likely your Solenoid valve is bad. This can be caused from improper backflushing among other things.

We stock them ($60). Email me at fixya@kaldi.com with your contact information or from our website www.kaldi.com

Hot water no steam low psi


Boiler pressure gauge should be showing in the green zone which should get you 195+ degrees.

The most that you need for PM on you machine is group gaskets every 4-6 months, those are very easy to do. A vent valve every now and then and maybe lubing steam valve swivels. If its Ok with you I will send you my e-mail and if you have any questions you can write me or post on this site. I'm on every couple of days.
