Increase Temp of Starbucks Barista SIN 006
Yes, there is a small device inside and against the hot areas with a wire in and a wire out, it's about the size of a dime but much thicker, silver on bottom part which touches hot surface and black on other half which the 2 wires are attached.
This is the regulator that shuts off the device when it gets too hot or burns out when overheated rather than killing the element. You can replace this device with higher rating perhaps but you risk burning out element faster, especially if it runs dry.
hey jee, would you happen to have a service manual for
Baby gaggia no water flow for espresso
I helped my father to fix two of these machines that had this problem. He never uses the steam, only making crema coffee all day long, every day.
It is not easy to fix, but its not complicated either. If there is no water flow from the brew group, but still steam, that means the brew group has gotten clogged with Calcium.
When you take it apart you will be amazed.
You will need a very short and fat Philips head screw driver.
or similar. Any hardware store will have it. 1st step is to turn the machine on its side on a soft surface to protect from scratches.
Remove the brew head and look in the brew group where you prob. haven't looked before. You will see a screen with a Phillips head screw in the middle. You need the screw driver to remove that screw. It is like almost melted in from the high heat so you need a Phillips with a fat head so as to not strip it, and a thick handle to apply a lot of torque. And you will need a bit of strength.
If you make it past this just hit me back and I'll tell you more. Or hit me if you have any other questions about this step, or at all. Believe it or not, there is more stuff past the screen.
