Question about La Pavoni Europiccola EPC-8 Espresso Machine

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.

Re: I can't get any water out of my machine

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.

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 coming out of the steam valve; however the water will not work on the brew function. I have taken all the parts out and washed them and attempted to run vinegar through to clean the pipes. The...

The blockage is at the brew unit, check the tube leading out of the top shower screen, you might have to remove screen and the 2 screws holding the tube leading to the spout, careful not to lose the spring and valve in there.

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.

Seaco Easy wont work/Warning light blinking always

Try descaling the machine. If there is no water getting to the brew unit then it might be blocked, if you checked the brew unit then the blockage might be at the boiler or one of the lines.

Gaggia Classic - water not flowing

Remove the screw and shower in the group, then press the brew button, if water flows then clean shower. I will send instructions for descale and backflush. Cut time for backflush by half.
