Steam Pressure is Low
If you're trying to use your ECM Casa V, and you find that the steam power is too low or insufficient for steaming or frothing, review the following to troubleshoot the issue.
- If you have activated the steam function and have allowed the machine adequate time to heat up completely but the steam pressure is low, remove the tip from the steam valve and inspect it. It may be blocked by old milk which will restrict the amount of steam that is able to come out the end of the wand.
- If you have allowed the machine to heat fully and the steam pressure is low, this could be a result of a failed steam stat which will not allow the machine to heat to its set steam temperature, causing the pressure to be reduced.
