    Sunbeam EM7000 hardly moving needle AND drip tray gradually filling with water

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi All

    so it's weird, the pressure needle hardly moving like we haven't tamped coffee hard enough
    adjusted grinder, made no difference
    AND

    i just noticed for the 2nd time that the collection tray is full of clear water but there's no sign of where its coming from

    any ideas please?

    I'm thinking its a blockage, the water pressure spill off flows into the drip tray?

    EM 7100 no pressure at group head- ends up in drip tray

    Hello,

    7100, water comes out of the group head if no grinds are in the basket, if there is a dose in the basket the water all ends up in the drip tray and no pour delivered.

    I have tried very loosely tamping the basket, no joy. Water does come out of the group head without a handle present at what appears to be normal volume.

    So essentially with a basket with normal grind tamped normally the water simply ends up in the drip tray. I have done a clean with the rubber cap and some good quality cleaning crystals and it did build up enough pressure to do this correctly.

    Am I missing something? Any clues?

    Cheers all

    Tony.

    What the? Appears our 2 posts are linked

    we seem to be having exactly the same issue

    With no head inserted the water flows out normally, once coffee is in the group head it was getting some water/coffee through but very week and the needle hardly shifted
    i'm thinking its a blockage somewhere as built up pressure is releasing the water inside the unit somewhere into the collection tray

    I CANT THINK STRAIGHT i'm coffee deprived!

    I have cleaned mine in every way I know. Water comes out of hot water spout. Steam wand is fine, is just simply the water does not pressurise the water that is coming out of the block, instead it is ending up straight in the drip tray. Same?

    The solenoid valve that opens to release water pressure on the puck once the shot has finished is constantly leaking when under extraction pressure.

    You will need a new solenoid valve. This applies to both posts here.
    Dimal and Tame9cruet like this.

    Thanks for your help. Due to issues with the acquisition of parts, the Hobart repair guy has pulled the pin on sunbeam.

    They are going to send an eparcel form to send it away for repair.
