As I was pulling my daily shot of espresso today I noticed that there was something wrong with the steaming mechanism. The shot came out fine but when I tried to froth my milk nothing came out of the wand and I noticed some water leaking from underneath the machine... Any idea what could be causing this?
I understand all of that, but do you have any idea why the water might be coming through the base? THe machine appears to be fine when brewing only but when I try to get some steam out of it it makes a slightly different sound than it used to and I can see quite a bit of water seeping through the base of the machine. I also notice that the wand does not get hot as it used to do.. Could it be that the wand is disconnected or something? Do you think I should attempt taking it apart?
Just took the machine apart and found what the problem is. It seems that for some reason the hose that connects to the steam wand disconnected from it. There is a little plastic tip that goes from the wand into the hose but that part is now broken..Any idea if it's fixable?
