Elektra Microcasa Semiautomatic

Hi. My water pressure in the glass is very intermittent (looks full, then level drops substantially and I have to be careful refilling it as it fills slowly than swings way high). This was working perfectly before I descaled it. Any suggestions?

Water control level


This is not adjustable. When full, the water level should be: between the very bottom of glass and about 2" up from bottom of glass. Anywhere around that level is fine. If water overfills, your pressure sensor may be bad, or its little hose could be clogged. To check for clog: Remove top (Two 1.5mm Torx screws in rear) ; On right side, see 3" round (brick red) plastic gadget (that's the pressure sensor - that determines water depth) with a few wires connected to it ; Unplug the power cord - for safety ; pull small black tube off pressure sensor and blow into it. If it's not clogged you'll hear bubbling (if there's water in machine) or just hear air going into drum. Pressure sensors very rarely go bad.

Why would the water not shut off after its full?


A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve. A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.

The water level switch on our GE washer is intermittent.


The only other thing I would do is to be sure the tube is sealed good where it hooks and doesn't have a tiny hole and take it off and blow through it To make sure it's clear.

Replacing orings on glass level indicator


Not hard to do. Unplug and drain the water. unscrew the frothing wand and tip the machine gently over a sink to drain the water in the system. Then using a box wrench (don't use an adjustable wrench or poorly fitting tool) remove the water reservoir. THen you can unscrew the pressure gauge easily. At that point, the glass is exposed. Gently twist until it's free and pull the glass up and out. When you are replacing the white Orings, a small bit of olive oil on the inside will help you insert the glass back into the orings. Then replace all the components.

You will need a 120/220V transformer for starters. That will make the Italian coffeemaker compatible with American outlets. The good news is that you can't do harm by plugging a 220 into an American outlet - it will just not give you enough power to run the machine.

I doubt that you can still get parts - I've seen used ones that still work on sale for anywhere from $1,000 to $3,000 - not cheap.

Here is all the contact info for Elektra - they are definitely still in business:

I'm looking for Elektra S1 Owner.s manual


if you have 2 gauges, one shows from 0 up to 3 bar second from 0 up to 16 bar.

  1. the gauge o - 3 shows steam pressure and it should be from 1.1 up to 1.5 bar
  2. if you have second gauge you look it during brewing coffee, it should be from 7 up to 9 bar(it shows the pressure of pump.
anyway becouse it is old machine you should compare the gauge with new one(ehamle for the steam attach to steam pipe one gauge and live valve open) than you will know if it is showing true values.
