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.

Excessive water comes out the drain when brewing a expresso


Hi
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.

The grinds are too course on my La Cimbali M2 Barsystem. Where is the lever, and how do you move the lever in order to make the espresso grinds finer?


The ginder udjustment for M2 is behind the coffee bean hopper. It is a small level hundle. You have to pull it up and rotate it step by step clockwise for more fine.

What are the maintenance procedures for the Pasquini mod. GMMC coffee grinder?


If this is in reference to the Pasquini K2 Moka Grinder, they are pretty much maintence free. Remove the beans/hopper, then pushing the button on left hand side down, you can unscrew the dial counter-clockwise. This will give you access to the top/bottom mills. Use a wire brush the machine came with to clean the coffee off from the mills teeth which builds up over time. Then reassumble and readjust your grind for the beans you are using.

Descaling the livia 90


The proper and only way to descale the boiler should only be done by a trained technician. As far removing the water tank goes, you simply lift it up from the left and right hand sides - this may be difficult if you have never removed it since calcium may have built up on the seal at the bottom of the reservoir - simply wiggle it side to side to remove. To clean the reservoir, you can use a green scour pad with water. If it is heavy build up you can use a product called CLR, and let sit overnight. You can save the CLR and reuse. Rinse well to remove all clr.

It does have a spring that you may have simply lost. It is called a Grinding Setting Pin #HGP120. If you do not replace the spring you will lose your grind setting each time. I can send you a replacement spring via USPS for $2.50 +$4.95 Postage

How do I remove small cap on steamer valve, to replace washer?


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.

We have a La Cimbala M2 barsytem that indicates press cleaning button, where is it?


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.
