Have to say, Im a bit surprised that this has been happening for a few months and youve done nothing about it. Anyway...
Sounds like a problem with the thermostats or switching from one to the other.
Running steam out of the brew head is not a good idea, as the element will be exposed and will burn out.
Are you able to pump water out of the steam wand?
