Question about Solis Crema SL-70 Espresso Machine
I think you steam knob is out of adjustment. This valve the the knob turns opens a needle, so when you close the knob it is just allowing the needle to seat. If you turn the knob harder you move the valve away from the needle, so when you try to steam everything has expanded and the valve does not touch the needle, and it won't open.
The top comes off by removing the screw on the top back where the water tank locks in. Once the screw is removed the put both hands on the side of the machine near the top and with your 2 index fingers, push the top forward. This will push the top of the face plate forward and release the top.
Once the top is off hang it over the back for know.
You will need a #2 Allen wrench. Rotate the knob all the way counter clockwise. You will notice that there is a cam that rotates with the knob. On the back side of the cam you will find a hole. Inside that hole is a #2 Allen screw. Loosen the screw and then without moving the cam rotate the know all the way counter clockwise, then tighten the Allen screw. This is how you adjust the Solis SL machines steam valve.
The top of the face plate locks into the bottom of the front part of the top, so when you put it back together slip bottom of the face plate into the machine, then put the top on the face plate so the front of both is flush whit each other. Then push down and back on the top and it will lock in. then put the screw back in and your done.
