Where's it dripping?  If you're talking about the steam wand, I have a fix that I can e-mail you.

Are you talking from the group/PF?  Mine dose the same.  After I turn off the pump, it drips for a little bit.  My guess is that it's the espresso inbetween the bottom of the basket and the spouts.  I don't know that I've noticed it while heating up, but I also haven't payed attention to it.  If there is any water in the group from before or condensation, it could be just that; while heating up, it builds some pressure and it drips out, I'm not really sure.  I don't know that anything IS wrong with it as I've had no other problems with the machine and continues to work well.

I actually mean the group/PF but the steam wand also drips so it would be helpful if you have a fix...


I have cleaned the showerhead by removing it with a screwdriver. There was a little spring and I dont know if I have replaced it correctly. Have you tried to clean the showerhead?

I've removed the screen, but there was not spring that came out w/ it.  I sent the steam wand fix to your e-mail, hope it works for you; it's a .pdf file with text and pics.

Simon and Nick, I did the adjustment last night, and it was actually really easy.  I hope both of you got my emails.

Simon, I just went through and cleaned up my machine.  I saw the spring you're talking about (not sure why I didn't notice it last time), but I payed close attention of how it was put it.  The white plastice part has a round end and a cylinder end.  The cylinder end fits inside the sprind and the round end of it points upward into the group.  The the opposite end of the spring fits into the  hole/tube on the shower screen.

Hi, just searching the web looking for some help with my ascaso dream.
It seems to be dripping from the steam wand, and I'm glad I stumbled by

Any chance I could get that email from you as well??

Thanks!

On it's way...

Hey, I have this fix on a .pdf file that I got from another Dream owner, does anybody know if this is something I can post so I can just put up a link?  Sorry, I guess I'm not very web savvy.
