Subject: Isomac Relax problems please help no water to group head
 

I have a Isomac Relax and I'm not getting any water to the group head. I have completely tore the machine down removed the group head and still cant figure it out. Water or air flows freely from the main inlet and outlet coming from the boiler.  If I plug one side no water or air will pass through the small hole that flows to the solenoid valve. You can here the valve click on and off. I disassembled the valve as well and cleaned it. The boiler does refill when you use the hot water tap and I have steam. The pressure goes up to about eleven. When I engage the brew head the pressure jumps up to about 14 or so, but no water. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Got it fixed! There was a pin hole clogged in what I now know as the gigluer. Got it back together and pulling shots! Thanks To Stefano at EspressoCare!
