Question about Saeco Aroma Espresso Machine
Once machine is switched on, water dribbles or flows steadily from the steamer wand. Bought this a couple of years ago new. Reputable seller we think, (Whole Lotta Latte).
Simple valve fix? Or does this sound more pricey? Hoping to repair in our area (Colorado) rather than ship somewhere, but many repair centers handle only fancy commercial machines. Thanks so much and I'm thrilled to finally find some real help online re living with espresso machines.
If it's dripping from the panarello, it's the needle valve. Open the top, remove the snap ring, unscrew the valve completely and examine the tip. I bet it has a nice shiny circular wear grove in it. I sanded it down on mine and it works just fine now. If that doesn't work, the valve body may have developed a crack at the seat of the valve, in which case the whole assembly may need to be replaced.
