Question about La Pavoni Europiccola EPC-8 Espresso Machine

1 Answer

I can't get any water out of my machine

I have taken the group off the machine, and there is no blockage in the pipe. I can't work out how to get inside the piston mechanism of the group where i imagine the problem is, perhaps with the seal on the piston chamber.

Rod into piston may be slack stopping water coming into group at inlet hole - take piston out and tighten rod. I had this same problem and this fixed it for me. Slackening occurs through time - maybe too much coffee in basket and forced onto base of group.

Rancilio coffee machine .no water coming out of the group head . steam coming of the group head

Hi Ewah,

If you are getting steam from the group and no water when you turn on the water button - then you may have a group blockage.

The fix depends on the type of machine you have.
If it is a commercial type - then call in a qualified coffee technician.
If it is a domestic type like rancilio sylvia, the you could try to descale - maybe too late, but worth a go.JURA descaling tablets
If when descaling, no water is coming from the group try leaving the steam tap open when asking for water.That way you may get the descaler liquid moving inside the boiler and it may clear the solenoid valve blockage.
If no joy with that you may need to replace solenoid valve.
Domestic machines need regular descaling to avoid group blockages.

I have problems with my jura capresso f60, it no longer makes coffee, it grinds the beans, but no liquid comes out. On the screen it says open tap, we have no idea how to fix this.

Machine thinks that there is no water getting to the machine. Majority of the time, this is caused by blockages of coffee in the brew group due to improper cleaning. I'm not saying that you haven't been cleaning it but that is usually the cause. How old is the machine? And has there been a cleaning tablet been put through it every day? Advise removing the brew group and check all pipes are clear, clean all loose coffee and check if you can blow through all of the pipes if you can loosen them. Clean coffee outlet/spout also. If the machines water is fed from a tank, It could also be a small bit of dirt has been pulled through. Hope this helps.

Water leaks when brewing. After several cups the reservoir under the stainless plate has quarter inch of water sitting in it. There seems to be no leakage while the machine is off.

The water can come from several places, it could be coming from a leak in one of the pipe joints or the overflow system.
It is possible you have a blockage in the pipe work.
The machine will have to be taken apart to investigate.
Depends if you are happy to do that or not as it is is a little tricky and depending on cover has mains voltage present.

Water is not completely pumped out of machine, I can hear it sloshing under the bowl. Have taken back off and tipped machine and some water has come out but not all of it. It is making the house smell...

sounds like you may have some blockage between the tub and pump or pump to stand pipe where water goes down the drain,check all these areas for blockage or kinked hoses

Grouphead not dispensing water

Remove the shower screen and press button to brew, if water flows the the holes in the screw/diffuser is blocked, if water does not flow then the blockage is at the solenoid or within the group head chamber. This problem I have notice when someone brewed without the shower and screw in place.
