The "frother" is probably blocked. Remove it and see if you can blow through it. If not, you can try cleaning it with a paper clip. If that won't work, place the metal frother tube in a pot of water with a bit of ammonia or vinegar in it. Heat the water to boiling, then let it simmer awhile. After it cools, try using the paper clip again. You should clean the steamer attachment after each use:
2. Remove the froth enhancer and rinse under warm tap water. 3. Wipe the steam wand with a damp cloth. 4. Briefly set the Selector Control to the ‘STEAM’ position to clear any remaining milk from the steam wand.

Steam wand it NOT clogged...but steam & water coming out at connection point and not coming through wand. I took it all apart to clean it and now this is happening...


You either missed a seal when reassembling, or did not get a tight seal (may be "cocked") when you reassembled it. In other words, no pressure due to lack of seal.

My breville cafe roma wand is not steaming it is just making air bubbles


Have you tried cleaning out the machine? My steam wand started just spraying out a steady stream of water but was not heating up. I used the cleaning solution CLR (8 parts water, 1 part CLR) and let it run through the steam wand for awhile. At first it just kept streaming out then all of a sudden it stopped. I still kept it on just to see what would happen. After about 10 seconds all of a sudden the steam wand shot out whatever had clogged it and it works perfectly again! I had only used the machine about 10 times before this happened. I had not been cleaning it well after each use back then. Now I definitely do.

How do you clean the frother on the ESP8XL machine?


1. Remove the froth enhancer and rinse under warm tap water. 2.. Wipe the steam wand with a damp cloth. 3. Briefly set the Selector Control to the ‘STEAM’ position to clear any remaining milk from the steam wand. If that doesn't work, remove any rubber parts. Place the metal frother tube in a pot of water with a bit of ammonia or vinegar in it. Heat the water to boiling, then let it simmer awhile.

Cafe Roma producing more water than steam


you really need to decalc frequently, at least every 2 months. after it goes too long, you will see that problem. have not figured out yet how to fix it.

No steam when valve opened, spits out water in the beginning of frothing


There is a small teflon piece on the inside of the steam tube, you will have to disassemble the frother to get to it. Remove this piece. Reassemble and the wand should work fine.

Too much water coming out of steam wand


I worked at StarBucks, what we did was put water into a contaner and steam the water, a lot of the time why the steamer doesn'..t work as well is because it is clogged. Another way to do it is to just run your steamer, also go to a coffee store and buy expresso machine cleaner. It could just need a good cleaning.

Extremely loud squealing noise during steaming milk


This could be blocked. The best way to clear this is to switch off the machine and see if you can dismantle the frother arm. Sometimes the arm will come off by unscrewing. If it does, wash it in hot water and washing liquid. If it doesn't come off try putting the frother wand into a mug of cold water and allow it just to steam the water.
Frother wands don't just steam liquids - they **** up liquid which can block the vents and the actual steam hole which this machines' problem sounds like it does have.

Krups 867 boiler steam leak


Save yourself the trouble, buy a $1.99 frother at Ikea.  Makes the cleaning process easy - that's what I use at home, never used the steam wand on my machine.
To use the frother, just heat up the milk and froth away.  Pretty easy.

No steam, just hot water.


The steam wand has to be removed to be cleaned properly. Unfortunately, this procedure is not outlined in the manual. Just cleaning the wand on the outside or using a clip to clean the tip is not enough.

The other end of steam wand where it connects to the pressuring cabin actually swivels around a fitting. It is this fitting that you need to thoroughly clean. Years of using the machine can cause calcification around this fitting.

If you look under this end of hte steam wand, you should see a philllip-headed screw. Before you loosen this screw, you have to remove the grey trim so that the entire wand can be remove.

Once the entire wand is removed, what I just described will be much clearer.
