Livia 90 Semi Automatic pump won't shut off during shot

Doesn't matter if you select the one, two, or manual button, the pump keeps going and won't respond to the controls forcing you to turn the switch off.

Bansheracer is possibly correct. But, most likely the problem is the copper feed pipe to the boiler is plugged with calcium allowing the pump to continuously run without stopping. Most likely this is a problem you will need to have serviced. We are located in orange county, CA, and we can service, or Pasquini can service at 1501 West Olympic Blvd, Los Angeles 90015. If you are not in CA, let us know where you are located so we can send you to the closest authorized pasquini service center near you.

Try cleaning your level probes on top of the boiler. They sense the water level in the boiler. If it doesn't see the high level prob it will try to keep going until it starts leaking on the counter. Clean the prob so the computer can see the water level. Yellow or green wires on stainless probes on top of the boiler.

You may have an air lock try using machine on and off 5seconds each time sow that you give the pump time to regain the water.
If not try and inject water your self from the rare instead of water tank some time when you get air lock it is removed alone by just simply leave it over night after you had tryed the water pump because the air lock is removed alone slowly.

Machine shuts off after a minutes

It sounds as though the steam being released with the valve a little loose allows some exhaust. When it is tighten up there is a sensor on them that will shut it off automatically for safety reasons. more than likely that sensor is broke or there is some type of clog cause there to be to much pressure and heat which in turn trips the sensor and shuts it off

Pasquini Livia 90: heats up for about 5 minutes, then shuts off

Sounds like the pressure switch is not working properly and the safety is turning the machine off. Try checking the tube from the boiler to the pressure switch that might be blocked, if not then the pressure switch needs to be replaced.

If they are blinking slowly check this. Check the wire on the water reservoir to make sure that it is connected. You can try grounding this wire and see if the machine responds.
Water level may be low in the reservoir. Are you using distilled water or reverse osmosis water. Don’t. The computer can’t tell if have water in the reservoir, because it need’s minerals to conduct the small current for the computer. If they are blinking fast you may need a new computer.

I have a six plus year old Livia 90 Semi Automatic. It builds up pressure and then releases through the release valve, sometimes every 10 minutes, sometimes not for a couple of hours. Always quite a...

This is a simple fix. This has been fixed on newer units with a rewire kit. This rewire kit is for Pasquini Livia 90’s with serial numbers PRIOR to #49000. We have them listed on our website Part# 90000 for $30.00.
You can contact me for this part - If you are local we could install it for you. If you do not fix this problem soon, you will need a new pressure release valve. It would also be advised you get a microswitch #7633905 for $13 at same time as the rewire kit. If you still require a manual we could provide you with a digital version.

My experience is working over 10 years at Pasquini as a master technician running the home repair sales and service center.

I stock all Pasquini parts for any service of your Pasquini espresso machines and grinders. Contact us for any of your Pasquini sales and service needs.

Livia 90 Lights come on then off, hums but not pumping

It is possible that the pump is blocked or damaged, remove top and side panels and check lines going to and from pump, you can run the machine without the panels and you will be able to see if the water is moving to the pump or if the pump is vibrating.

Livia 90 semi auto

I got hold of Pasquini directly and they most graciously talked me through it, admitting the instructions assumed more knowledge than average.  In other words it was a polite way to tell me not to quit MY day job!

All 3 lights on Livia lighting up with hot water use

Is this a Livia 90 semi or auto ?? It sounds as if you are talking about an auto. The autos have had a history of the cpu controller board going out. Probably going to have to take it in for service for proper diagnostic repair. Parts are not cheap and with no warranty- you don't want to start throwing parts at it to get it working right.
