Hi,

Recently the steam wand on my GS3 has loosened and can't stay in the position in certain angle. I am wondering is there any way to tighten up the steam wand. I would like to tighten it up a bit. Thank you.

Looks like you've got the performance wand, making me think your machine is relatively new. Probably best to check with La Marzocco or your seller as that doesn't look normal.

Hi, yes, it is a new machine. The wand is ok and it is not having nay issue. It is just that I would like to make it little tighter. Is tighten up the wand as simple as tighten a bolt or screw? Thanks

As far as I'm aware there isn't a way to tighten or loosen the wand movement.

Hi, contacted LM and they have been very helpful in solving problem.

They advised me to tighten up the two brass screws under the cup warmer tray that keep the steam wand join attached to the frame. Done it and it did tighten up the steam wand a bit.

Hope it helps to people in the future which having the same problem. Thanks.
