Ensure the steam knob is turned off.
If it is the steam valve or microswitch will have failed

My expresso machine won't steam. Just suddenly stopped. Have tried running vinegar through system, but still won't run through steamer.


Hi, I dont know which brand machine you have, but I should be able to work out what is wrong. If your machine has a press button or turn knob steam tap, then it could be the solenoid which opens the steam flow. The solenoid itself maybe stuck or the coil maybe faulty. You just need to work back from the steam arm to work out which solenoid it is. It should make a clicking sound when activated. Commercial machine solenoids canbe disassembled and cleaned. If its a domestic machine, then just replace the solenoid. Also, some machines have a micro switch that activates the steam valve. If its faulty, then replace it.
If its a domestic machine you have, then another thing that maybe at fault, and that is the thermoblock (small boiler). If it doesn't heat up then no steam canbe made. The thermoblock has an element inside, and they can not be replaced. You have to replace the whole thermoblock. It can be easily checked with a multi meter to see if the circuit is broken. On some thermoblocks, is a thermostat or overload sensor. It is also easily checked with a meter.
So lets break it down a) solenid
b) micro switch
c) Thermoblock
d) thermostat/ thermol overload
Hope this has help you. Id be looking towards the thermoblock. Dazza

The steamer dosen't work at all. When the knob is


First you should remove the end tip of the steam hose and try to clean the steam holes with a pin. The steam should come frealy withou the end tip. If not then you shoul desasemble the steam tap , clean it and put it back together. The problem is only caused by dry milk or milk with chocolate. Even if you manage to have some steam then the problem can be solve by using the steamer warming just water in a glass and leave it all nigh long inside the boiling water in glass this will meld the dirt and will gos away.

Steamer on gaggia titanium


a. Possible air in the system. Switch to hot water iso steam, let warm water pas for a minute by turning the knob fully open. Stop tapping warm water (close the knob) and switch the machine to steam iso water. Try to get the steam by fully opening the knob (pump should start running). 
b. Solidified milk in the system blocking internal tubes. To avoid this always purge the system (shortly open the steam to an empty cup or a towel) after you steamed milk to avoid milk being sucked back into the system due to condensation of steam (this creates a vacuum and reverse flow). To resolve the blocked tubing: clean the nozzle and try flushing the system (tapping warm water).

Making froth


Hi,

try to make a cup of water after you used steam, you have to cool down the boiler.

Steamer


Both tubes must be in the water. If you haven't used the machine for awhile, fill the water canister, turn the espresso maker on and also turn on the delivery switch (the top switch on the EC140). You'll hear the pump and in a second or two water will begin to exit the boiler nozzle. Immediately turn the delivery switch off. Wait for the "OK" light to come on. Press the "Steam" switch (the middle switch on the EC140, place an empty cup under the frother and turn the steam control knob on top in the counterclockwise direction. Steam will come from the frother. Be very careful to avoid contact with this steam.

Steamer does not work


Your steam wand is probably clogged with milk. Remove the panarello outside and stick a paper clip up the tube. Then try to run water out of the steam wand.

 

Hope this helps!
