I have a problem with my Quickmill 0835 coffee-machine and hope you guys can help.

Everything seems to be working except for the fact that when i press the button with the coffee-cup on it,  the machine starts running water trough the steam wand.

I assume it has something to do with the magentic valve or the overpressure valve..  what is the best way to remove those 2 and clean them ?

a photo is inserted to show the internals,  hopefully someone can point the problem.

I don't know your machine but I am guessing that it has a single boiler. If that is the case, then the most likely explanation for what you describe is that the grouphead is blocked up. How often do you backflush and/or descale?

Just to share the answer to the problem:

The quickmill or la messoni 0835 uses the steamwand as a lever to switch between steam and brewing..  swing the steamwand inward towards the brewhead and your coffee starts pouring..  very strange design...

Hello, did you solve your problem ? If yes, can you tell me how ? Found an old Monza and want to tune it up. Thanks.

If the steamwand is in the proper position while brewing coffee there is only a reason of your issue, the o-rings fitted on the small sliding shaft inside the steam valve are worn.
No overpressure valve is installed on this machine.
