The problem is a very frequent one a small scale part have been moved and it stack to the water steam valve and it blocking it from closing completely. So when you make coffee the hose of water for coffee is in parallel with hot water steam wand and since the valve remains partially opened the water for coffee find easy escape from steam wand.

So we suggest to perform one more descale and it may need twice hopefully this small scale part to be dissolve a little bit more in order to pass thought the steam valve and thus the valve can close again completely. If you are not so lucky the part remain on the valve then only solution is to disassemble the machine thus clean the steam valve manually. In this solution you may find out that the valve o ring might be damage and thus the leak.
here is the link with steam valve parts and this the parts diagram of the machine and here many more for your machine

Hello

Unplug the machine and remove the coffee container by loosening its two fastening screws. Pull up on the adjustment lever and turn the grinding adjustment ring until its two blue marks line up, which will let you remove the ring. Vacuum or brush out the machine's gear box and grind-ring support, and reassemble the machine.

Use a thin needle to check the steam/hot water spout hole for clogs. Steam and hot water will not be dispensed properly when the hole is clogged.

Adjust grinder levels if there's a problem with the speed of the coffee dispensation. Move the level lower if coffee is dispensed too quickly, and move it higher if coffee is dispensed too slowly.

Descale the machine by pouring a descaling solution into the water tank (the solution package will specify the amount), selecting the automatic descaling mode and placing a large container under the water spout. Allow the machine to descale, which takes about 45 minutes, and remove and rinse the water tank with fresh water. Then, fill the water tank with water and allow the machine to automatically rinse itself.

If none of these steps corrects the problem, contact a professional for repairs.

RE: F9 Upon startup the unit goes thru the normal cycles for making an expresso but, after the beans grind, little to nothiing is dispensed. The unit stops and the message is to fill water portion. I push...

Hi Bill
What happens when you do a tea ? (hot water only, NOT the steam button) do you also get little water ?
The fact that you are getting steam is good as there are 2 heating systems in the unit.
Have you ran the descaling recently (if you do not use filter ) ?
If you have or use a filter the problem is likely to be at the rear of the machine, however the back contents all the power and you will need to be happy to do some stripping down of the machine,
In the back you have the pump, valves, heater etc.
I am just about to draw up a flow chart of the water system inside the machine and have it published online (couple of days).
Are you happy to strip machine down ?

When I try to brew a cup of coffee, it grinds the beans but then the only thing that comes out is hot water from the steam wand.

Not a solution but I have exactly the same issue. I found the Technical Service Manual on line a performed all self tests but it passed then all. The problem started after I didn't use the unit for a couple of months.

My machine blinking on steam, the wand does not want t o steam, the espresso does not pour. The knob is turned on stand by , but still some steaming noise comes, but no steam comes from the wand, nor...

When it is blinking on steam it means it is preparing the unit for steam. When the steam light goes solid your unit is ready to make steam.

  • Turn from standby to steam then wait for steam light to go solid.
  • When solid steam wand will begin dribbling then spitting out water, which will then turn to steam.
  • When it begins to steam, turn back to standby. NOTE: you only have 6 seconds before steaming turns off.
  • place steaming wand in jug and turn from standby back to steam.
You will hear pumping noises when you turn off your steam, because it releases the steam and puts the excess water in to the drip tray.
  • make sure your bean hopper is properly locked in to the unit. Grinder won't work if hopper not locked in.
  • Make sure your water filter has been prepped and locked securely in to the reservoir and your reservoir is filled.
  • Use fresh beans.
  • Sounds funny but use good quality water, do not use ordinary tap water. Make sure it is filtered or use bottled water (cooler bottles).
  • Try to grind your beans to a good consistancy.
  • Breville recomends about 10kg tamping pressure, use a set of scales to check the feel.
  • Tamp to about 3-5 mm below rim of grouphead (portafilter). Or the tamp has a guide on the side, that silver side on the tamp is the tamp line. Pretty vauge about that in the book.
If all else fails go to www.breville.com.au and check your model and watch some of the vid clips.

How do you use model 40715 hamilton beach espresso machine? i couldnt get the loose grinds to work so i bought espresso pods and now i dont know how long to wait for it to drip or if im even doing it...

I have this machine and have used it for about a year. Most important is use fresh beans within 15 days of roast, and within 15 minutes of grinding. You cannot get good results from this machine using pre ground coffee, or pods. Second, this machine is terrible with temperature stability. When warmed up it will usually be way too hot. Wait for the machine to warm up (light will come on). Open the steam valve, run the brew pump for 5 to 10 seconds into your cup and turn it off. Shut the steam valve, wait for the light to come back on. Immediately hit the brew button. This procedure will do a nice cooling flush and hit more towards the right temp.
Third, the pressurized basket that comes with this machine just dosen't do the job right. Replace it with a Mr. Coffee double basket, non pressurized and you will see immediately better results.
Last, the screeching steam wand. This machine will give wet steam, all the time. After pulling the shot, hit the steam switch and wait 20-30 seconds, then open the steam valve full to purge water out of the wand. Close the valve, then go to steaming your milk. There is a place about 1/4 inch below the surface that you'll hear only a chhh-chhh sound. Wand too deep, it will screech and wake the neighbors. Too shallow and you'll get sudsy big bubbles. Just find that sweet spot and surf there till you're at 140-150 degrees then turn the valve off. Good luck.

I have a saeco Talea Giro machine. When I press the button to make coffee, the beans grind but no coffee comes out, but raher the water comes out of the steam spout. What is the solution

Check the screen on the brew unit, it might be blocked. If the brew unit is cleaned and the problem is still happening then the steam valve needs to be rebuilt because the pins are allowing the water pressure to pass through.

Dispensing Failed- Saeco Talea Ring Plus

Try adjusting the grind four numbers coarser and brew a coffee, if you are getting the same result then the brew unit is clogged and the screen needs to be cleaned.

No coffee is coming out of the machine...

in our machine we wanted a stronger coffee so we adjusted the auto grinder (where the coffee beans are housed) to the finest setting thinking the finer the grind the stronger the coffee...after doing this the machine wouldnot make coffee...we sent it away while still under warranty and the tech said that the grind selection was too low so they just turned the grinder back up a notch and it worked fine ....dont know if this will help but it's worth a try!
