Re: no pressure

The relief valve has a toggle inside that is heat activated. This can stick. I found if you tap it with a spoon the toggle will release and the valve will close.

Hi there. problem with my La pavoni PL-16. No coffee comes out. The vapour its ok, it comes out but from the place the coffee should comes out, it doesnt. With or without the the filter holder. Whats...

Hi if there is Vapor coming from the grouphead when the lever is down then I would guess there is a problem with the seals around the piston and possibly elsewhere. Here is a link to a goos site that looks at repairing La Pavoni lever machines. Good luck.

La Pavoni pressure switch

Hi there, i am Mr La Pavoni based in Glasgow, Scotland and i will be able to help you. If you know the parts you require then i think you would be best to replace them as if it keeps blowing fuses then it may cause more damage than you would like.

Unregulated pressure then safety valve releases pouring out steam

Hi there,
It seems to me that your pressure stat which is inside the base of your machine needs replacing. I would try to give it a good descale and if this doesn't do the trick then a new pressure stat is what you need. Prob around £20 if you buy it and do it yourself. and just click on the little la pavoni machine for full parts list.

All the best

Pavoni, no steam from steam wand

i havent heard of this issue , it could posibly be the bent steam wand , but the nozle is made to be that way, because the pavoni eurpicola doesnt produce enough steam pressure , it enables you to create better froth
