SOURCE: steam wand not working
When I got my X1 (used,) the steamer was clogged. I unscrewed the end of the nozzle, and a big chunk of calcium(?) came out. I had to poke it with some wire with the steamer on. The way I got the end off is: I wrapped it with a leather glove first, then turned it with a pair of pliers. I still managed to scratch it a little bit though. Maybe you can turn it by inserting a needle in the little hole on the side of the nozzle. I've been thinking of using distilled water to avoid the calcium build-up in the future.

SOURCE: No steam on the Dream
Initially, pls check for steam leaks. This model has been known to have issues with leaks preventing it from reaching the correct pressure/temperature. Since the leak could be visually checked, it would be a matter of determining at what point/component would the steam be coming out other than designated point. Often, it would be a joint with a rubber seal or a tubing entry point.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

n regards of the no prime issue. this is the only way i could prime this new puppy.make sure its stone cold which is a no brainer since it will not heat h2o unless its primed. first take off steamer plastic tip ,turn on steamer clock wise till pump starts. then **** the tip of the end of the metal tip hard until pump stops may need to do it a couple of times. yes this seems out of this world but it works. you are flushing out the vapor lock in the pump. bravo enjoy!

1. Possibly the level probes are covered in lime scale. Remove both, check, clean and replace.
2. Inlet valve faulty overfilling tank. Remove outlet side of inlet to tank and check for seepage. Clean/replace as required.
3 Possible board fault not reading the resistance across probes. Try another board.
4. Worst case scenario..... you have got a leak in your heat exchanger causing excess water to flow into tank. This is a nightmare job and expensive to repair. If you need further advice contact Roger on firstname.lastname@example.org
