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