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?

Does the pump work? The steam and hot water are from the boiler pressure, but the coffee water circuit is separate and needs the pump.

Steam wand sprays hot water and very little steam. Cannot get a good frothed milk. Machine is also leaning forward by about 5degrees. Is this normal?

The boiler lever sensor is dirty, full of scale or bent so more water getting in the boiler than it should be. Try to remove the lever sensor clean it with a brush and put it back.

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.

Boiler does not refill properly

Chances are, your level probe (rhs of the boiler) is dirty/scaled.Then the probe is always earthed and does not allow water in as it thinks it's always full.
Take it out and clean with wire wool(obv with no pressure in the boiler).It should have a red wire attached to it.
When you refit it, make sure the part inside the boiler faces down.
