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.

Hello, Lucas -

I have not found any kind of repair or replacement part information (for Finland) regarding Elektra coffee and espresso machines. It seems they manufacture their machines to last a long time and keep tight control on repair.

I am answering from the USA and am having difficulty in finding a repair center for you in Finland.

Therefore, I suggest you contact the Elektra company directly. This is the link to the Elektra home page:
If you scroll to the bottom of the page, you will see an email address (in the lower left corner) you can use to send a message asking about repair service to your machine.

Best wishes.

I want to get a user manual for the skype wp-S1 cell phone please kindly help thanks

If you cannot find a user manual in English, I've found a website that offers one in Italian.

There is a work around for this. What you'll need to do is download the Italian user guide to your PC. After opening the PDF file (the manual) click and highlight the paragraphs (or any word) then right click and select copy. (Up to 2000 characters at a time.)

Then, go online to this website:

There, you can right click and paste the information from the manual - section by section.

You can download the manual here:

From the User Manual:
If the machine was switched on by mistake without having filled the water circuit, the heating element safety device might have been activated.
This device protects the electric heating element against damage due to momentary overheating caused by lack of water.
Proceed as follows:
Proceed as indicated in chapter "E STARTING UP THE NEW MACHINE FOR THE FIRST TIME".
Check that the machine heats up correctly: if it does not, switch off the machine by putting the on/off button 1 to OFF and pull out the plug.
Remove the yellow plastic cap located under the bottom of the machine.
Insert a sharp pointed object into the hole left by the yellow cap and use it to press the small underlying button.
Refit the yellow cap.
Connect the plug to the power socket and switch on the machine by putting the on/off button 1 to ON. Check that the machine heats up correctly: if it still does not work properly this means that the heating element has been damaged; have the machine repaired by an ELEKTRA Service Centre.

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.

Elektra Microcasa a leva

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:
