Learn what to do if no steam or hot water comes out when opening the water valve on an ECM Casa V espresso machine.
How to Diagnose Hot Water and Steam System Obstructions
- Hot water and steam both come out of the same valve in this machine. When you press on the brew button on the machine do you hear the pump come on? If you do not it could be an issue with either the pump needing to be prime, a wire coming off of the pump, a blockage, the pump switch has failed, wire may have come off the pump switch, or the pump has failed.
- If you hear the pump but it sounds like it is under pressure, take off the tip of the wand and open the valve. If water flow is restored the steam tip is likely blocked up by old milk and should be cleaned.
- If you open the valve and no water flow comes out, and the pump is running, this could be the result of a block in the hydraulic system preventing water flow.
