Customer Question

I have a built in espresso machine. When I make a cup of coffee, the water comes out the hot water spot and the coffee comes out the coffee spout. There is water in the waste basket. The machine is 15 years old.
I have rinsed and descaled several times.

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! I suspect there is an issue within the brew unit if you have not seen any leakage. The seals may need to be replaced after 15 years of use. I can send you the service manual, if you'd like.

please send a manual. Is it different than the user manual that comes with the machine?

Seems like something might be wrong with the water valve? The hot water works but all the eater does not get through the coffee spot. Does the whole unit need to be re,over to take the panel to look at it?
Expert:  Kelly replied 10 months ago.

For that issue, I do believe you will need to remove the unit to get the top access panel removed.
