Brevell BES 870 water intermittent and spluttering, Steam and head working OK-ish.
im wondering what part I have to replace as we have been drinking black coffee and the hot water dispenser is stopping, starting and spluttering. Ive always cleaned it and have recently tried descaling and cleaning several times to see if that helps. im wondering if its the solenoid but im pretty sure the pump is a little worn to. probably put 3000 coffees trough it at home the last few years. Im keen to replace water pump and solenoid if that will help. Otherwise we will just get a new one
We need to test the flow rate of your pump to confirm. To do this remove the shower screen, start the manual shot running then once the preinfusion has finished stick a container under the stream of water and start a 30s timer. If you get ~250ml the pump is fine.
