  • Problem with EM6910 steam dial

    Hi I'm a newbie and need some advice. Bought the machine a couple of months ago (and have lost receipt) and the dial for steam gets stuck while turning it on and then when I try to turn it off. Pressure seems fine while it is on. Feels stiff or sticky! Not sure how else to describe it. Any tips?
    I am north of Brisbane if anyone knows who might be able to fix it?

    Erm, are you sure you have the right machine?

      This happened on my newish Sunbeam EM6910 too. The service guy (over the phone) told me to pull the knob off and then give it a quick 'clean' (just with a cotton bud or something similar, with some light alcohol-based cleaner), on the area that contacts the metal spindle. I then pushed it back on and it did the job.

      [p.s. don't quite know what you are getting at mwcalder05...?]

        Do what JamesJames says and while the knob is off, check the screw in the centre - mine was loose (& eventually fell out) and I was having all kinds of strange issues with steam until I tightened it again - at which point all the 'issues' vanished.

          Ahh I see, I took the word 'dial' as the steam temp gauge on the EM7000. Never-mind me!
