Water out the steamer when brewing

History

We cleaned the brewing line but still have some water coming out the steamer during brewing, as if a valve or seal is not working. Any ideas? Starbucks apparently doesn't make these Espresso Makers or provide customer service anymore.

Refrence the Starbucks Barista teardown to get inside of the machine. At step 8, loosen the 2mm hex screw on the steam valve knob and you should be able tighten/close the steam knob more than before. Re-tighten the 2mm hex screw, reassemble the machine and test it. If this doesn't solve the problem you may have some calcium blocking the valve from closing all the way, which a descale should take care of.
