Love my CC1 but started having issues with steaming, Bill and I trying to figure it out. Has to be the thermoblock failing. But what's odd is generally a thermoblock fails and that's it, either water/steam or no water/steam. Mine now steams but wet steam, and weak power, then just putters out but still makes that clicking pump sound (CC1 owners know what I mean, that umff umff umff sound from the pump when steaming). Yet if I use the steam arm for just hot water, that works fine.

Have you been descaling the steam block when you descale the main boiler?

Just to clarify, descaled with Cafiza, or descaled + Cafiza?  Did you run Cafiza inside the machine, it is not a descaler.

No, use Urnex Dezcal for descaling. Cafiza I use for just monthly cleaning backflush.
