Coffee machine noises

Applies to

All freestanding coffee machines.


Where your coffee machine is making noises, it is expected for appliances to make some noise.  

What are acceptable noises - 

  • When the coffee button is first pressed to initiate the espresso extraction - normal functioning noise will occur
  • When steaming milk - you should hear a gentle thumping sound during operation.

Noises to be checked - 

  • Loud noises 
    • Check the water level within the water tank.  No water within the tank will cause noise and for the auto-priming to become blocked.
    • Where the appliance has not been descaled, this will cause noise and possibly leaks.  Ensuring the coffee machine is regularly descaled to ensure correct operation.
