  1. Hi all, hopefully someone will be able to point me to the right direction. TL;DR> Machine runs water through steam wand for 0.5-1 sec only and then stops. Is the machine faulty or there could be some other reason? I have received basic setup (Ascaso Basic + roaster + grinder) from a friend. All are USA machines, but I have a voltage converter. The problem is with my attempts to prime it: turn machine on, open the steam valve and press a "Coffee" button. A short stream of water comes out of the wand and that's it. After I leave machine alone for some time and repeat all steps, I ge
  2. I had been concerned about the pump on my Classic. On another thread it mentioned that a properly working pump should push through 600 ml of water in 60 minutes. I checked mine and it pushed 450 ml in 60 seconds. So, new pump ordered from Amazon and fitted last night. Switched on and worked which was a bit of a surprise to me! Anyway, when I removed the pipe to the pump it was black inside, but not previously visible as the black bit was hidden under the pump I thought it might be prudent to ensure the whole system was clean so I ran a full water container of water with some Milton in it
  3. Hi, happy new year fellow coffee lovers. Ive been a fan of the site for a while now but need some advice please. The problem is my beloved prima Donna ECAM 26.455M has finally stopped working. I regularly descale and clean but about a 6 months ago the milk frother stopped working, it seemed to be through a lack of steam/pressure but i just continued to use the steam wand. The wand did spit and steam on occasion when a espresso was being made but i just put up with it. Unfortunately it recently stopped even producing steam and has now got the empty circuit error code. Is it a fix
  4. Hello all, I am hoping someone is able to help me out. My Gaggia Classic has from new had a problem with poor steam and brew pressure if I leave the machine on too long before using the steam wand. If I used the steam wand within 10-20 minutes of turning on the machine all is well. If I get distracted and come back more than 20-30 minutes after I turn the machine on the steam tends to be weak and will lose pressure before I am able to steam enough milk properly for just one drink. Then if I try to pull a shot after that the pressure there is also weak. Yesterday, I had one of those day
  5. That would be why the Ulka pump on my Classic did not work very well.What looks like a circlip is actually one of the coils off the pump spring. Full strip and clean fit new pump ready for standby duty.
