Elektra Microcasa a leva

I have a Elektra Microcasa a leva that hasn't been used in about 25 years . It was bought in Italy and has a 220 plug. The underside has a panel that says it is 220 v 50 H 800 W...Could this be right? Can I use it and can I get parts? Do I need a power adapter? What would I need to get it in working condition.

You will need a 120/220V transformer for starters. That will make the Italian coffeemaker compatible with American outlets. The good news is that you can't do harm by plugging a 220 into an American outlet - it will just not give you enough power to run the machine.

I doubt that you can still get parts - I've seen used ones that still work on sale for anywhere from $1,000 to $3,000 - not cheap.

Here is all the contact info for Elektra - they are definitely still in business:

I'm going to Italy. Is it dual voltage?


Italy uses 220 volts, 50 cycles alternating current (AC). If your appliance works on both 110 or 220 then IT'S dual voltage and should work. If it only runs on 110 then you will need a voltage converter to use it on 220.

Wife turned on machine with low water. Lights are on but does not heat up. Reset button does not


There is a thermostat reset switch that is accessible through a hole in the underside black plastic base. You can use a screwdriver to poke through the hole and depress a cylindrical push button switch. Please unplug machine and remove parts that fall off before tipping it over.

Replacing orings on glass level indicator


Not hard to do. Unplug and drain the water. unscrew the frothing wand and tip the machine gently over a sink to drain the water in the system. Then using a box wrench (don't use an adjustable wrench or poorly fitting tool) remove the water reservoir. THen you can unscrew the pressure gauge easily. At that point, the glass is exposed. Gently twist until it's free and pull the glass up and out. When you are replacing the white Orings, a small bit of olive oil on the inside will help you insert the glass back into the orings. Then replace all the components.

if you have 2 gauges, one shows from 0 up to 3 bar second from 0 up to 16 bar.

Work in Europe?


According to the rear panel of my 2200, it will accept 120VAC 50 ~ 60 HZ. Which means that outside of a proper plug adaptor, it should work fine. You need to adapt the epson power cable to whatever the French use. Be sure it is 110~120 VAC. Ran into some 220 in Italy

Power light on, no warning light, doesn't heat up at all


Your resettable thermostat turned off the high power heater circuit and the red warning light. The heater got too hot when the boiler became empty of water. This is to keep the heater from burning out if the boiler becomes empty. To reset the thermostat, turn the micro casa a leva over. There is a yellow plug near the center of the bottom which is easy to pry out. Stick a screwdriver, pencil, toothpick, chopstick or whatever else is lying around into the hole and gently reset the thermostat button. You will hear a click when it resets. You are then ready to go.
