Below you will find instructions for fixing a squeaky steam or hot water arm on the ECM Synchronika espresso machine.

You will need to allow the machine to cool off completely before attempting this procedure.

Tools Needed:

  • Adjustable wrench
  • Towel

1. Remove the outside portion of the steam or hot water arm using the towel in between the wrench and the polished finish to protect it.
