  • Coffee machine steamer squeaking

    For the last few days I have noticed that when I use the steamer on my Fracino Cherub it is squeaking when I turn the knob both on and off. Anyone any idea what I should be using, is it just a spray of WD40?

    WD40 will quickly dry out and the squeak will return.
    Don't know what your set up is, however if you can get a dab of food grade grease on the shaft it should control the squeak for quite a while.
    Inox food grade grease is available from Jaycar, approx $8.95, I'm sure other brands are just as good.

      Thanks for this. I couldn't get Inox where I am but found another one that was suitable for coffee machines so hopefully it will do the job

        If that doesn't work, try a small piece of hard cheese placed on the top of the machine above the steam knob. You might have a small furry resident enjoying the internal warmth of the machine and when you use the steam knob you could be winding up his tail causing the "squeaking"!
