Question about Starbucks Barista Utopia

1 Answer

Barista Coffee Expresso machine

I purchased this machine 5 years ago. It has been working fine up until a few months ago when the steamer spout started spitting water. It is getting worse. I have not tried to fix this problem. I have inquired at a local small appliance repair shop about fixing this but they need to know who made the machine. Can you help? Thank you.

    Steamer spout leaks a steady stream of water when the dial is in off position & while espresso is being made. Have to keep something under it or water all over the place.



    The actual steaming process seems to work fine.

Yea, that happens to me. Try this way....Turn on the Barista, wait til the the steam's green light, then push the steamer button on, wait for a good 1 minute. It should be blowing hot air by then. Good Luck

Trey -
It sounds as if the water pump has gone bad. If the machine will not put water out of the hot water spout or the steam spout, and there is no water in the base of the machine (leaking from pump) then the pump is not putting out any pressure. The sound you hear is the pump running - but no pressure behind it.

I have a faema x1 grandaitalia machine , the water coming out of the boiler is only getting to 33 deg can you send me or a diagram of hot water system thanks or tell me what to fix problem


Ope you mean from hot water spout if so several problems exsist as this machine has a cold mix system to bring the roughly 120c water from boiler down to roughly 94c to use for americano. check spout and descale hot water nozzle or see if any black/brown particals in defuser(fine mesh in spout)as boiler pressure is roughly 1.3/1.4bar and mains water is roughly 2/4bar thus cold water will win if black brown particals in mesh poosible boiler contamination causing restriction to which once again cold water will win. question did any one take any pipes apart about 5 months ago????? as there are restrictors within the system.

No water comes out on ventilate. At first, the water was coming out very slowly, in drips. The doser or grind were not the problem, because even when I switched to Hot Water, it was still dripping. ...


Hi
It should take about 45 minutes to an hour to properly descale the machine. If it only took a couple of minutes you really didn't descale your machine. If you used the powder it has to disolve completly before descaling. The best way to descale is with the descaler in the tank. Turn on the machine and run about 8 ozs of water-descaler through the wand and then turn off the machine. Wait 10 minutes and repeatthe last procedure. Do this until the tank is empty. When done with the descaler, rinse out the tank and put fresh water in the tank and run the whole tank through the wand. Then fill the tank and your ready to go.

No steam pressure with little to no water/steam


Remove the steam wand and inside you will find a small teflon like tube at the top, throw that away and run water through the wand to make sure it is clear then re-assemble in machine and test.

Hurlewan Your washer is still under manufacturer's warranty which is one full year. If it has Kenmore's name on it you do not need proof of purchase. The only thing you need is your mother-in-law's home phone number at time of purchase because Sears keeps all their records based on phone numbers. Good luck, Gendos post back....
