Question about La Pavoni EUROPICCOLA EG-8 Espresso Machine

1 Answer

On my 6 momnths old europiccola no water coming into group

Was working fine until few days ago; used alkaline water; decalcified but still the same. After long wait (3-5 mins) some water comes to group and can make coffee. Not possible to "purge" the head as no water coming out. Steam coming out OK.

    Disassemble the head (remove circlips and bolts and push it all deep in until everything comes out - remember the order of things coming out) and screw the piston on the pushrod few turns more (or fully if you want) and re-assemble. It worked for me great! Good luck.

SOURCE: adding pressure gauge to Pavoni Europiccola

  1. in the boiler water is heated and presured up to 1.5 bar
  2. when water gets in lever and non return valve closes becouse you press the lever down, your energy is used to get high pressure, it should be frpm 7 up to 9 bar.
  3. SOLUTION==if you search way for modifying, you must consider that you must pump directly to group, not to boiler. in this case water will be cold (becouse comes from pump). you will need boiler in boiler to heat the water wich comes from pump before it gets to group. this is bit more complicated than you thought may bee but it is only solution.

SOURCE: water leaking from the group

Hi there,
You can buy a service kit for your machine at www.theespressoshop.co.uk and that contains all replacable gaskets and washers and gives you an exploded diagram and sachet of grease and descaler to get your machine back in as new working order. The service kit you require is the "old group service kit" and is about £20. If you go to the website above and click on the la pavoni machine on the right hand side of the home page it will give you the full parts list.

All the best

SOURCE: System is not priming

This is normal after you leave the machine unused for a long time. The water dirt or scale or both make many parts to stuck like glue. The presure pump might be stuck if even if you here the noise of the vibration the outlet have been blocked. another part that can be stuck for the same reason is the water solenoid. Both can be fixed by remove them desasemble them and clean them with a wire brush. If you have a litle technician knowladge this is a very simple operation. Of course if you persist you might unsuck by trying the procedure you mention but it seems that now it is hard to be hapen.
Good Luck

Water presure or clogged up.


I don't have the same brand, but I had a similar problem. These machines depend on generating high pressure (bar) and clogging is a problem. One source of clog is calcium and minerals in the water. Even though you have and change the water filter, there will still be minerals in the water and it can result in clogging.
You should use a decalcifier periodically but for the problem you are having now, you most likely need to take the head apart and clean the mesh and parts. Make sure light comes through all the holes. Don't enlarge the holes. Just clear them. That is what did it for my unit. Hope that helps.

I only get foam after 4 Shots


The only thing that comes to mind is descaling. To me it seems that most of the boiler room is being lost to minerals, so there is less water in there. Try descaling the machine.

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.
