Question about La Pavoni Europiccola EPC-8 Espresso Machine
Somehow, the machine remained switched on during the day so that there was nothing but water over the side and the red 'on' light on when I returned home. I am presuming that, either, the element has died or there is a safety cutout or the thermostat has died and cut it all - it seems strange that no fuse has gone if the element has gone?
Any ideas? If it's something straightforward, I'd rather fix it myself than send it away.
There is a 'magic' fuse button hidden in the base of the unit, concealed by a rubber gromit. Pull out the gromit, press the red button and it should come back on.

1. Power off machine.
2. Using a metal paperclip, insert it into left side of top needle. It must insert at least 1" deep. Insert it into slot on right side and again from back of needle.
3. Remove KCup cradle. Separate bottom from top. In the top section, insert the paperclip up into bottom needle from the bottom upwards. It will not go all the way thru and this is normal.
4. Reassemble KCup cradle and reinsert it back into coffee maker.
5. Power on machine.
6. Brew a cup of water only. There may be coffee grounds in the water and these should eventually clear during the remaining steps. NOTE: A large cup brew cycle should output a full 8 ounces (235cc). Less means there is still a blockage
7. Empty reservoir and fill with undiluted distilled white vinegar. Repeatedly run brewing cycle until Add Water light comes on.
8. Make sure Auto-OFF is NOT set and let last cycle of vinegar remain inside machine for 4 hours.
9. Refill reservoir with fresh water and repeatedly run brewing cycle until the water is clear and odorless.
10. Set Auto-OFF, if preferred.
