Question about ECM Giotto Espresso Machine
Giotto has worked fine for a couple of years until recently. I lifted the lever, no coffee comes out. I try any possible ways including draining all the water from the tank and restarting the machine. It just won't brew again. The pump should be working since I heard it's usual loud noise sucking the water from water reservoir to the boiler. The boiler is working fine, too. The steam pressure built up till 1~1.5 as usual. I suspect either the switch or the sensor is broken. Any idea to help me debug. Thanks!
This happened to me. If you look closely at the lever you will see that the action of lifting the lever presses in a switch that is right behind the lever on the front of the machine. This switch starts the brew pump. One of the wires connected to this switch has rattled loose and lost contact. To fix this you will have to take the top of the case (the lid) off and then use long needle nose pliers to try to grab the loose wire and re-attach it to the switch. There is not much room to manuver, but I managed to do it eventually. Unplug the machine first, of course!
