Where is the steam coming from, if its from the top, then the problem is the vent valve or the safety valve, if it is the safety then the pressure stat needs to be replaced because it might be damaged or blocked at the tube that connects it to the boiler.

I have boiler pressure and steam coming threw the wands but no water flowing through the brew heads. What could be the problem?


Either the solenoids are damaged or blocked, or the metering jet on the top of the group is blocked, or the blockage is at the flowmeters. Do you get a reading on the pump pressure gauge when the buttons are pressed?

My 2 group astoria over steams from top of boiler.it warms up then in about half hr steam shoots out at the preasure valve doicky do i need a new one of those thanks greg


The pressure releive valve is pre-factory set to open if the pressure in boiler reach between 1.6 to 1.8 bars.
So either you have the presure switch (presostat) not working normal which supose to switch off the electrical element at 1.2 to 1.3 bars.
So look at the presure gauge at which presure the presure releive valve open and releive the steam out from boiler if it shown more than 1.5 bar the you need to check the presure switch since it does not switch off the heating element.
If the presure releive valve open below 1.5 bar then you need to replace the releive valve.
Good Luck

Hot water no steam low psi


Boiler pressure gauge should be showing in the green zone which should get you 195+ degrees.

The most that you need for PM on you machine is group gaskets every 4-6 months, those are very easy to do. A vent valve every now and then and maybe lubing steam valve swivels. If its Ok with you I will send you my e-mail and if you have any questions you can write me or post on this site. I'm on every couple of days.

Older machine needs repair


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.
