Mineral buildup in the water lines may have broken loose when the boiler (I really think water heater) was replaced and clogged the line somewhere between the boiler and the dishwasher.

Your boiler installer can come out and check that for you.

There is an economizer valve on the machine that needs to be adjusted. I will assume it was pumping hot water, this is not a new installed machine, then the machine has scale buildup that is preventing the hot water from leaving the boiler through the tubes to the solenoid, only the mixed cold water is being dispensed. If this is a new installed machine, adjust the economizer on the boiler, remove the left panel for access. Big nut on the boiler you will see where it connects to the solenoid.

Sir, LA CIMBALI 39 DOASTAROM 3 GROUP MACHINE MOTHER BOARD BROKEN Sir, We try to install the new mother board, most of the things are working, the boiler is heating up, but when we turned on the...


hi. Im not sure excactly what is going on with your explaination about your machine, but I gather the the original mother board has died, and you have replaced it with a new one. It sounds like you have a water fill issue with your machine. If the boiler doesn't have enough water in it, then the pc board will shut the machine down. Ive never worked on a m39, but they are from the Faema corporation, and Faema/ La Cimbali electronics canbe very complicated. Dont now why they make such complicated electrics, cause there are hundreds of other brands with simple electrics.
If your boiler was empty, then the water fill cycle might be a timed cycle, and is shuting down before the water level has reached the water level probe inside the boiler. If this is the case, then once it has stopped, turn the machine off, wait 10sec, then turn it back on again and let it start the fill cycle over. You may have to repeat this a number of times until it has reached the water level probe inside the boiler. Some machines are designed to have a slow water fill, because when you draw hot water from the boiler for making tea, fresh cold water is pumped back into the boiler to replace what you have taken out, and if it fills too quick, then your steam pressure drops. So by filling slower, the machine will maintain its steam pressure. Good idea in theroy, but its only good for cafes that do 300 coffees per hour.
Im hoping that your machine is configered this way, cause it will probably just have to be turned on a few times until it has reached the water level probe as I explined in the begining. If you have a sight glass, you can check to see how high your water level is. If your level is correct, and its still not working right, then id recomend calling a repairer. There are number of things that could be wrong, causing your board to die. Faulty solenoids. switches, touch pads, pressure switches can cause main board issues. Hope all this helps with getting your machine working properly. Dazza Repairer

No water coming through coffee filter. I have descaled twice. You can hear the pump but no water and then it goes quite with no water. I have tried to prime the pump but still does not work. The steamer is...


If you open the steam tap while the pump is running does water come out? if so then you might have a blockage in the coffee solenoid or the bottom of the boiler. Do you hear a 'click' sound when you hit the coffee switch? If not the coffee solenoid may not be operating. The most common cause of the problem you are having though, is scale flaking off the boiler walls causing a blockage where the coffee water comes out. Try hiting the coffee switch, opening the steamer and then if water starts pumping out, close the steamer and see if water starts flowing out the coffee group. Do this without the portafilter (coffee holder) in place.
If you do get water flowing trough the group, try backwashing the machine.
If these things dont help then you should take it to an authorised repairer or open up the boiler yourself if you are a handy person and have access spare parts. Good luck, these machines can make a great espresso when in the right hands and working order.

Am unable to prime water pump


Water is not being drawn from reservoir into boiler. The valve at the base of the boiler seems to function properly. After repeated attempts, I am unable to prime pump and fill boiler with water.

Think Pump or boiler broken as water doesn't flow through


If you cannot get hot water from machine(brew unit or steam valve), then there is something wrong with boiler elements.
If water won't flow thru coffee(pump is not vibrating) and you've tried adjusting the grind to a coarser setting, then you will have to replace the pump($50).
However, since no water is going thru machine and it does not heat up then the problem might be the board or the inline fuse on the machine.

Non i;n working boiler


Did you put automatic vent plugs on this boiler?This help stop from having air locks.I would try bleeding the high pipe to see if any air come out.The other thing I would check is the valve that out for the pump to pump water around.

Limited water output (saeco vienna superautomatica model year 04)


Could be 3 things. Pump, flow meter, or clogged boiler. Pump is a standard ulka pump, flow meters are bought only from saeco as well as boilers. If i had to guess.... If its a vienna black than i'd point to the flowmeter. If you get pressurized water out of the steam wand than its either the flow meter or the boiler. Pointing more towards the flow meter (u shaped white plastic part with in and out tubes.
