Olympia Cremina does not steam?

If your Olympia Express is not steaming when you open the steam knob, but the coffee is hot and the group (coffee) is hot.

  • Check the steam tip
    • Remove it by unscrewing the tip
      • If the tip does not come off, remove the wand completely by unscrewing the nut at the top of the wand. 
  • With the wand off, try to open the steam knob. 
    • If steam comes out with the wand off the machine, it means the wand is clogged with milk. 
  • If not steam when opening the knob with wand off
    • Machine is not hot enough

If the wand is clogged with milk, soak the wand in water for a little while until the milk becomes soft, then proceed to cleaning out the tip. 

Note: While testing the above the machine needs to be plugged in and ready for use.

  • Please remember to be careful, as you are dealing with steam temperatures.
