Pump pressure is adjusted at the pump. There is a nut or screw next to the water inlet that is used to change the discharge pressure. This assumes that your pump is running. Your pressure of 2-3 bars sounds like the pump is not running at all. Put your hand on the motor to determine if it is running. If it is not running then that is the problem you need to diagnose. If it is running then it could be the pump or coupling.

Zero steam from steam wands. No pressure.


First thngs first, make sure knob is turned to 2, then make sure there is water in the boiler, then turn machine to 0, remove back panel and reset thermostat on top of back boiler, if your machine has that feature installed. Then turn machine to 2, open one of the steam wands, If within 10 minutes boiler does get hot or there is no water bubbles, from steam wand, then the pressure stat might be damaged and needs to be replaced.

How do I increase grouphead pressure on la marzocco linea 2 group?


To increase dispense pressure you turn the adjustment screw at the pump. When pulling a shot (use espresso) on one group the bottom needle of the gauge should read 9bars while pulling the shot.

Expansion valve won't regulate pressure. how do I remove/clean/adjust this valve?


The only thing the expansion valve does is open when the pressure gets to 12 bars when the coffee boiler is heating or when you are backwashing the groups. If you need to adjust wait until red light comes on to say coffee boiler is heating then if gauge is going beyond 12 bars turn end of expansion valve to left to keep it at 12 or right to take it to 12 if it is lower, before doing this make sure pump is set to 9 bars.

How to reassign the 9 key to open another line for outbound calling. Currently, it opens line 4 of our system and we want it to open line 2 on the station. Thanks


To change the dial 9 group on a prostar 816 you first need to be at a display set (doesn't matter what the extension number is).
with the handset down enter #20 the screen should say MMC DISABLED
1) enter in 1 2 3 4 1 # (that enables programming2.gif)
2) enter in #47 the screen should say DIAL 09 GROUP and then 11111111 1= in group 0= not in group
3)enter 11000000 for lines 1 and 2 in dial group 9 4) press # when finished

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.
