Is this a "Classic" problem??

Recommended Posts

When I use the steam arm for either hot water or steaming I get water coming through the grouphead. I don't think that this should happen but it is not a fault that I can find on the forum. Also don't think that it is a steam valve problem, but i could easily be wrong. Does anyone have any ideas?

Is it possible to just buy the brass bit of the valve? Have you ever taken one apart, if so can you give me some tips. I soaked it in quite a strong solution for about 30 mins and nothing seems to have happened. still got same problem. Coil is ok, I have checked it with power on. Not really sure how the porting is on this valve but one of the holes appears to be blocked completley. I cant get the spring loaded centre section of the valve out.

Hi Mark, Thanks for the reply and link. I have had the valve assembly off today and can confirm that electrically the solenoid is ok. When I remove the tip section of the valve and look inside there is a spring loaded assembly. I can press easily the centre section and it returns however I can not fully remove the inner parts. Do you know if this is possible? It seems to me that the right hand hole is blocked. If it was would this cause the symptoms that my machine is showing?
