The distance is not stable. You have made everything corectly and you how they work.
Now you need to uadjust the distance when the machine is workinig on. The required presure should be 1.2 to 1.3 bar which is the ideal between the temeperature of the milk and temperature of coffee. So you should hear and see the switch going of when the machine reach the above mention pressure.
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.

you should look for pressure stat and look for calibration screw, than you turn it towards + to rise Little bit the temperature. Quoter of circle each test, until you get the desired temperature or pressure
Your resettable thermostat turned off the high power heater circuit and the red warning light. The heater got too hot when the boiler became empty of water. This is to keep the heater from burning out if the boiler becomes empty. To reset the thermostat, turn the micro casa a leva over. There is a yellow plug near the center of the bottom which is easy to pry out. Stick a screwdriver, pencil, toothpick, chopstick or whatever else is lying around into the hole and gently reset the thermostat button. You will hear a click when it resets. You are then ready to go.
