Krups EA 80 milk frother not working properly.

Question edited for typos and spelling. It is a 'frother' rather than a 'throther'.The roaring is normal, you are releasing steam from a boiler. Steam wand issues are usually caused by cooked milk solids inside the wand. You need a good enzyme cleaner like Rinza.

I have a lavazza espresso point and both red lights are flashing

I've found if you check the basics and the obvious first it's often something silly you've missed. Is there water in the tank? Yes, I've done that. How old is the machine? Parts do wear out if it's used regularly. Are you only making one or two cups of coffee or are you making four or more cups all together? If the machine gets too hot through continuous use it will go into a "Safe" mode until it cools down. With the machine unplugged from the wall wait until it it totally cold. Open the water tank and drain as much water out as you can. At the bottom of the tank there should be a small plastic rocker arm. This is the water level switch. Use you finger and check it flops up and down. Refill the water tank and plug it back into the wall socket. Run the machine through the 'hot water Only' cycle twice. This can flush the pipes inside the machine. Let the machine cool down then put it through a Descaling cycle. Are all the spouts and nozzles clean and not clogged? Sometime a slow flow of water can cause error lights. If non of these check solve the issue it is most likely a problem with an internal part. You'll need to get a professional repairer to do the work.

De'Longhi PrimaDonna Soul Coffee Maker not making milk foam.

The milk delivery tube is very narrow bore and in my experience you will find the tube is blocked with congealed milk solids even if you clean then regularly. You need an enzyme milk cleaner like Rinza and even with that you need to manually massage the tubes or remove the blockages. The service engineers just replace them.

Delonghi Magnifca Evo doesn't show "add beans" error. It just continues with the process and makes a weak coffee or just pours hot water.

When was it last dealer serviced? These machines need a service every year. Of course they don't tell you that when you buy them! The hopper sensor needs cleaning or replacing. https://www.google.com/search?q=Delonghi+Magnifca+Evo+doesn%27t+show+%22add+beans%22 ..

Bunn CSB3T Speed Brew Platinum Thermal Coffee Maker, 10-Cup. It seems to not brew as hot as when we first got it.

Somewhere inside you should find a small rotary thermostat. Also make sure the heating element is completely clean by using a quality descaler like CLR. A lot of people use white vinegar but it is not that effective on coffee makers. Make sure the heating element under the carafe is working, because that is heating up as the coffee is brewing. ..

When starting to grind, my excelsis saeco push open the service door

Make sure the containers are tightly in place and check the door sensors ( the magnetic sensors may need replacing). Also, consider trying to completely power off the machine, wait a few minutes, and start it back up.

Krups GVX2-12 Electric Burr... Problem:

First, unlock and unscrew the upper burr carrier. Clean and check the upper burr by gently running your finger over the teeth in the cutting direction. It shoild feel moderately sharp. If it feels very blunt, look at the teeth under a good light. If you see a substantial "flat spot" at the top of the teeth, probably the burr set will need replacement.
For the bottom burr, clean carefully its teeth, and the entire area in which it is housed. Include the outlet orofice as well. You may find a lot of oily deposits within here, so just clean them off as best as possible.
When all is clean, insert the top burr holder back in place. Screw it down until both burrs touch, then back it off (say) 1/4 turn, and lock.
Put some beans in the top, and switch on. Adjust the top burr until the desired grind is obtained.
The ground coffee should feel like a coarse sand when close to the desired grind size.

On/off button doesn't start flashing for descaling on Illy Coffee Machine X7.1

You will know the machine wants to be descaled when the red alert triangle is blinking (lower right part of control pad) 1) Machine must be OFF and cool in order to descale the machine! 2) Fill the water container to MAX with very warm faucet water. 3) Add a packet of Illy / Urnex Dezcal or similar citric acid based descaler to the water, stirring it in until dissolved. 4) Replace the water container into your Illy Francis Francis X7.1 Iperespresso machine. 5) Place a 1L (minimum) plastic catch bowl (or other suitable container) under the brew head AND frothing wand, which should be pointed toward the center of the stage under the brew head (as in video above). 6) Power the machine ON. 7) IMMEDIATELY depress and hold only the BREW (coffee cup symbol) until the machine emits THREE SHORT BEEPS, followed by ONE LONG BEEP. Release the BREW button after the long beep. 8) Press the BREW button again, as you would when brewing a cup of espresso. 9) The machine will begin to PULSE, and the STEAM BUTTON will blink. The machine will alternate between pulsing water through the brew head opening and the frothing wand. This will continue until the water container is EMPTY. Be ready to remove the water container, and IMMEDIATELY refill it with cool (Brita filtered or distilled is best) water, and replace it as quickly as possible. The machine WILL NOT STOP THE DESCALING CYCLE, so replace the water container as quickly as you can. You will probably need to empty the catch bowl at least once or twice during this procedure, and the water will be VERY HOT, so use caution! 10) The machine will continue to pulse between the brew head opening and the frothing wand. 11) The machine will stop pulsing at some point during this second tankful, and the BREW button will begin to BLINK, with an alternating BEEP between blinking. If there is very little water left in the water container, fill it up with cool water again. Empty your catch bowl if it is full and you haven't already done so! Once everything is back in place, press the blinking / beeping BREW button, which will begin to rinse the machine through. 12) The machine may repeat Step 11 more than once! 13) The machine should now come out of DESCALING CYCLE on its own, with the red POWER button illuminated, along with the blue BREW button being on and solid. 14) Run one or two BREW cycles, with cool, filtered water. 15) Run the STEAM cycle for a few moments, as you would when frothing for a beverage, to ensure no descaler remains in the frothing wand. • Your Illy Francis Francis X7.1 Iperespresso machine is now descaled! see less

My Cuisinart CCJ-500P1 won't turn on how to repair

To repair it, one must find out what the cause is. Do some fault finding first; check there is power at the switch and the motor has continuity etc. When you have found the faulty part, then you can replace the faulty part or repair the break in the cable etc.

Breville 800ESLX pump runs continuously.

Unfortunately, yes it likely a boat anchor unless spares are available somewhere as residual stock. These machines need regular dealer servicing, but they don't tell you that when you buy them. Breville Customer Service will never give service information because their dealer and repair network do that, plus the fact they don't want to be liable if the say you need a new pump and a new control board and that doesn't fix it. My advice would be to take it to a Breville Service Centre and ask if it is economical to repair. This is a know issue!! That is probably why it was discontinued. https://www.google.com/search?q=Breville+800ESLX+pump+runs+continuously ..
