Starbucks barista won't pull a shot

2 1/2 year old machine. we descaled recently. when drawing the shot it has been dribbling over the filter for quite a while but sometimes it would work correctly, until this morning---it come out slightly colored light brown water (kind of like when i clean it and run the water through).

Have you professionally cleaned the grinder ( + burrs)? To do this, would have to open the machine, remove the burrs, & clean them.

Can't get steam from the a Starbucks Saeco Italila Digital Auto


Hi If you can get water to flow from the wand, you can descale the machine. You might have a bad steam boiler. There is also a fuse on the boiler that might be bad. Set your water hardness to 4 to keep the machine working for a long time. Descale more often than not enough.

Not brewing shots, just spewing water out the top!!!


Yup, it sounds like you have a leak !  When the spoon is locked in place, the coffee is preventing (blocking) the water from flowing freely, and it simply finds an easier path, through a hole or loose fitting above the spoon... Depending upon your skill level, you may want to have a look inside the machine and you should be able to see where the leak is.  If it's a hole in a pipe/tube, the pipe/tube will probably need to be replaced (maybe it can be repaired...), and if it's a loose fitting, you can try to tighten it.  It might have come loose due to the vibrations from the pump. Another possibility is that you have a lot of scale built up in the system.  If you've never descaled your machine, you should do so regularly using coffee machine descaler or "CLR" available at hardware stores.  If you've ownded your machine for a while and never descaled it before, run the descaler 4 or 5 times to give it a good cleaning and then do so according to the instructions (I do mine every couple of months but I don't use my machine every day).  If you use unfiltered tap water, the scale will build up more quickly, specially if your local water is "hard".  Consider using filtered water to reduce the buildup of scale.

Starbucks Barista Espresso Machine Ready Light Went Out


Call Home Espresso Repair in Seattle. I've used these guys a couple of times, and they're wonderful. Once I wasn't getting any steam, and the guy told me how to open up the case and make a simple adjustment of a set screw that probably saved me big bucks.
I was actually just there today to pick up some O-rings for the steam valve. Charged me $1. And that includes replacing them for me (I had removed the stem and brought it in).
My Rio Vapore (earlier version of yours) is now 17 years old, and I give H.E.R. a lot of the credit for that.
Oh, and did I mention that back in the days when Starbucks was small (many moons ago), they were the in-house service center for all the machines Starbucks sold?
Their number is (206) 789-9513.
Good luck.
