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.

Not sure I understand your question since there are no question marks "?" But assuming you open hot water and nothing comes out. Saeco uses micro switches to activate pump for hot water. Steam sometimes ruin the switch. Open and replace
I had replace my on off rocker switch on my aroma nero after a couple of years I was able to swap out my switch for heating the steam as a temporary fix I purchased a replacement switch from Sacco at that time but I think now you might have to go to a secondary parts dealer I have kept this machine a live for over 12 years and am now going back to it after fighting with my new automatic machine sure it was easy but the taste just was not the same the kids can have it they put so junk in their coffee how would they know firstname.lastname@example.org
This is normal. The solution is to let the steam wand run for a few seconds to purge all of the liquid water from the system before you begin steaming your milk. It will take about 10 seconds or so. You can do it into the drip tray, into a pitcher or bowl, onto a rag, or even on the counter. The key is not to put your milk under the wand until all of the liquid water is gone and all that is left is steam. Good luck!
The machine needs to be primes.
Please trie and release hot water though the steam nossle.
Do like this
Open the steamer and then trie and make a cup of coffe. this will make the hot water come out thought the steamer instead of the coffe outlet.
Why you should do this is becuse the machine has it alot more easier to prime it self though the steamer then the coffe outlet.
