Subject: No steam on Isomac Tea
I received my new Isomac Tea about a week ago and have fully enjoyed it
until this morning when the steam function did not work at all.

I used the same start-up routine for the past week: 1) turn the machine
on, 2) wait about 30 minuttes, 3) pull the lever to drew water through
to group head. This morning I then turned the steam wand knob but
nothing happend - there was no water/steam/noise. I turned the knob for
the hot water tap and it worked fine. I drew some more water through to
group head, waited a couple of minuttes more, but still no steam.

Has anyone experienced a similar problem or can figure out what is
wrong? All help is appreciated.

It was the steam wand that was clogged... I don't know why I didn't
think of that - properly because I'm a newbie in the espressoworld and
therefore didn't think straight when my new piece of equipment didn't
work properly (or maybe just because it was too early in the morning).

Anyway - your tip is very much appreciated. Thanks Dave!

Hi Dave,

Thanks for the feed back.

The temperature of the water coming from the group and the hot water
wand seemed to be normal. I think the boiler pressure was about 1,2-1,3
but I am not completely sure. However, I did not notice any changes
except for the complete lack of steam. I will try again tonight and add
further details.
