Re: Display says to press cleaning button. Which one is...
Top 2nd row left. The small button with the filled cup icon. It's for short wash (2 mins) and full wash cycle (after opening the pill drop chute) which takes 8 mins to complete. Instructions in your operator's manual.

Your 3 way valve is dirty or bad. Have you ever done a back flush with a detergent?
About every 3 months it is a good idea to do a backflush your machine with a blind filter basket. When backflusing you should only use a good espresso machine cleaner designed for an espresso machine's brew system. DO NOT USE a decalcification cleaner. First, clean the screen and dispersion plate plus the brew head and reassemble, which will prepare you for backflusing. Then, insert the blind filter basket into the portafilter with a ½ teaspoon of cleaner in the basket. Next, place the portafilter into the brew head and tighten. When the machine is hot turn on the brew button for about 10 seconds and then turn off. Then, wait 30 seconds to a minute. Next, turn the brew button on again this time for only about 3 to 5 seconds and then turn off. Wait 30 seconds to a minute. Repeat these last two steps six to eight times. After you have completed the backflushing remove your portafilter and rinse the blind basket with fresh water. Next, you turn on the brew switch to rinse the plumbing. Then, reinsert the portafilter into brew head and turn on the brew button for about 10 seconds and then turn off. Next, turn on the brew button for approximately 3 to 5 seconds and then turn off. Repeat about 4 to 5 times. Always remember backflushing is hard on electric 3 way solenoid valves, so it is not recommended do this no more than four times a year for a machine used in home application. You will find more good is done to your machine be properly cleaning the brew head.
Simply use a small flathead screwdriver to press one side of the dial insert to remove the dial cap. Under it you have a flathead screw. Remove this to remove the cap. Then use a 20mm socket or open ended wrench to remove the nut. Unscrew the union valve then you will see a seat gasket in the front, and an o-ring on the valve on the back - this is what you are looking to replace. You can contact me if you have any further questions.

The top left button on the 2nd row of smaller buttons. It has a filled cup as an icon. press and hold until screen says 'short wash' or group wash. There is also a full cycle washing that is required some time during the day usually at night or start of a work shift. This requires the opening of the 'de-cafe' or pill drop chute. It's a small black slide about the size of a pack of gum. open it and drop a cleaning pill then close it. the panel buttons will blink and the screen will say press cleaning button. press and hold the wash button (as previously mentioned) till the cycle starts to clean. Release button and allow 8 mins for the cycle to complete. This will keep the 'clean cycle' clear until the next shift or next day when it needs to be done again. These instructions should be in your manual that came with the machine.
do you need calibration for brewing??? if it is so than you can try this instructions:
Hold down the stop button for 8-10 seconds or until you hear the faint
beeping sound, press button to program when you get the correct level
press stop button. On some models you have to hold the button until you
get the correct level then release. When you are done programming press
stop button a second time to exit program mode.
PS : this solution works at many of older machines, as Emonec, la Cimbali.... THIS SOLUTION WHAS POSTED TO ME FROM ES WORLD
This is confusing to me. This is called priming the pump and not releasing air.
The noise you were experiencing could be from the grind of your coffee is too fine not allowing proper water flow. Remove the portafilter/handle, push brew button - and if the water comes down like rain, there is nothing wrong with the machine - it has to do with the grind, and your grinder may need a adjustment.
If you have a problem with a Pasquini machine, I'd recommend only relying on authorized Pasquini service centers.
