La Spaziale Dream - issues Hot Water Solenoid valve

Post by cofex » Wed May 16, 2018 10:05 am

Hi,

When I push the tap hot water on my Dream, the machine just shuts off or the breaker goes off.

I troubleshoot with Chris Coffee technician and he said I need a new hot water solenoid valve.

I unplugged the hot water solenoid and the machine works now without the hot water option, the steam works well.

Questions:

1. Any issue using the machine without using the hot water. I dont really need hot water.
2. If I take out the hot water solenoid valve and clean it , would this make the hot water work?

Thank you ...

It sounds like the solenoid has an internal short circuit so cleaning it will not help. If you don't need hot water go ahead and leave the solenoid unplugged so that someone doesn't accidentally try to use it.
