Never use Vinegar.. *:P *Tis crap except for drinking when ya sick *:-X
Use the correct cleaning materials - SB even supply the tabs and they are different for good reason... As Mr Fix said..
Back-flush detergent *and a De-scaler for de-scaling.. READ the manual, they are different..most steaming/ temperature problems are associated with lack of descaling or not replacing calc filters
As to A solution through the steam wand... *Search CS..
The manual says NO; because most users will use the wrong product or *not follow the process and then want to blame some one.. A thermo block is a thermo block... But this one gets hot and the chemical react a little different and are not good for most creatures that walk upright. However as many seem to have knuckles that drag on the floor... It may yet be a real solution :D
Mr Fix and I have our own methods to try and clean these sections. If done correctly - it is safe and can clean most blockages.. *If not done correctly - *then you can STUFF the machine even more that you already have and or your self.
Strange is it not.. *People will harp on about little crap and ignore the fact that every manual carries warnings about 240V and only authorised persons. *240V will kill ya quickly... Every one ignores... A few chemicals may take 20 years to make ya sick and every one gets their knickers in a knot.
Quote one part of the manual and ignore others or quote; but do it out of context.. *No wonder people get confused and start assuming...
