SOURCE: can't get milk to foam

Place 1/3 part distilled white vinegar and 2/3 part water into the water reservoir. Turn the machine on and wait for the heat light to go off. Once the heat light goes off, turn the steam vs. water knob to the water drop icon, and turn the main function knob to steam/water. Make sure to have your frothing cup underneath the steam element ready to catch the water. The vinegar/water solution should clear out the calcium that clogs the steam element. Also, remove the cover to the steam element and dip it in a bowl with vinegar for about 5 minutes, and use something like a pipe cleaner to clean out that cover. Then apply vinegar and hot water to a rag and clean the calcium off the shaft of the steam element. Once you are all finished with this, run plain water through the espresso maker on the steam/water setting to clear out the bitter vinegar residue. Now, try again to make espresso and froth it.

Since milk contains calcium, the steam element has to be decalcified more often than a regular coffee maker. The EM-100 is a beautiful machine, but it is definitely high-maintenance - you will probably spend more time cleaning it than making cappuccino, etc.

Good luck!

SOURCE: Starbucks Barista Espresso Maker

This is a general comment for people having problems with leaks and pressure in their espresso machines. If you do not used filtered water, the minerals and other materials suspended in the water will bond to the moving parts and tubes of your machine (e.g.: scale). The problem will be worse if you live in an area with particularly hard water. In some cases the pressure pipes can get completely blocked and if the pump is powerful enough, the pipes can rupture, otherwise, the pump will simply not put out any water. The solution is to regularly flush out the system with descaler. The frequency of cleaning depends upon how often you use the machine. You can get descaler from any decent coffe place (like Starbucks), an appliance repair place, or the hardware store. I use CLR which is sold at hardware stores. CLR stands for Calcium-Lime-Rust, and it effectively cleans all of these and is cheaper than specialty scale removers. Simply dilute some in water and pour the mixture in the machine, then cycle the pump and run it through. Collect the spent liquid and run it through again 4 or 5 times (or more if you've never cleaned your machine before...) Allow the liquid to sit for 10-15 minutes between flushes so that the solution has a chance to eat away at the scale. Once you have done this a few times, flush out the machine thoroughly with clean water 4 or 5 times, using CLEAN water each time you rinse. If you want to get an idea of the scale that has been removed, keep a small amount of the original clean solution in a glass and then compare the spend cleaning liquid with unused cleaning liquid to see the difference. The spent liquid should be foggy/muddy compared to the clean stuff and if you let it sit, the scale will settle to the bottom of the glass and will be clearly visible. You can prevent some of the buildup in your machine by using filtered water as they do at Starbucks.

DPcurry is right. You may have to plug it in to get a "feel" for which way and to what degree to rotate the shaft, but works like a charm.

Hi
Sounds like you might need a new steam boiler, or you may have a fuse that is blown for the steam boiler.

Saeco vienna Deluxe grinder doesn't work properly


Hi,

Try to open the steam knob and make a cup of water.
Make sure everything is in place.

One more thing you can try is:
open the door, take out the brewing unit, driptray and dregsbox.
Look in the machine and you will see three hole, one in the lower left corner, one in the middle above the driving shaft and one in the right upper corner.
Turn on the machine and put a screwdriver in each hole and see if the lights go off.

Hope this will help you.

  1. Power on the machine
  2. Open the door and look up to the right corner, you will see a little hole.
  3. Take a screw driver and put in the hole, now take another and put in the hole down in the left corner.
Now you shold hear the machine give little noise, if not it can be the micro switch in the left corner that has to be replaced.

If you open the steam knob, can you hear the pump start?

Hope this will help you.

PUFF OF STEAM,CONDENSATION,GRINDS LONGER


The steam and leaking in the upper right corner turned out to be a leaky valve. I may have been able to fix it by just replacing the O-rings. However, the only place I found to get the right rings was in the kit to replace the steam valve assembly.
