It could also be that the solenoid is of the wrong specifications, and hence not getting up to pressure.. Have them check both the temp and pressure cutouts again..

SOURCE: water will not come through the steam wand

I had the same problem. I took the steam wand off, and checked for steam out of the unit. It was OK, so I stuck a thin wire up through the steam wand and dislodged what look like pieces of a green washer or O-ring.
In short...the wand was plugged.

Hi
More than likely your 3 way valve is stuck. It is located behind the front panel and when the 2 screws are removed it slides to the right. Unplug your machine before working on it. The 3 way valve is on the left and you can remove the dispersion tube on the bottom(unscrews) 14mm nut holds the solenoid on and you can slide the solenoid down the shaft. The big nut at the top of the shaft will unscrew and there you will fin the solenoid inside with a big spring. If its not stuck it will slide out and you probably need a new 3 way valve, but more than likely its stuck. Some times just tapping the nut on something hard will unstick the solenoid. Clean good and reinstall.

I have a rancilio epoca 1group. After I turn the steam wand off it keeps steaming. Would it need a new valve?


Hi Daren,
You could replace the whole steam valve wand but you don't need to.
The rubber grommet inside the steam valve is worn out and the tap wont close properly - that is why the steam is coming out.
You will find these parts with a commercial rancilio supplier.

No steam pressure


Leave the valve open until it starts slowly hissing, then shut off valve and wait for the pressure to build up.

Rancilio steam wand loose not working


Rig wand! you mean steam wand?
Take lid off and see if the knob clib connection to the steam valve is come out. Otherwise, possibly the steam valve's portioning washer is hardened and stuck. BUt sound slike shaft is broken or lost connection to the valve

Not getting a good/any froth. (Rancilio Silvia) My steam wand leaks air at the tip so I bought a new one and replaced that, it still leaks air. I don't want to tighten it too much so I won't crack it....


If steam wand leaks at the tip sounds like the steam valve needs to be rebuilt or replaced, because the valve seat is damaged or has mineral buildup keeping it open.

My pasquini livia machine is leaking from the base of the steam wand. Perhaps it is a gasket how do you replace these?


Hi,

You have to take apart the system for changing the gaskets.If you are not a technical savvy don't try for it.Here is the parts diagram for your machine.Many of my fixya customers took apart the system to change the valve and they suffered a lot to fix it again back.All the best.

Steam wand leaks and no pressure.


Ok, remove the right side panel, you will see a red switch connected to the element by a metal coil, make sure power is off and unplugged, then press in red switch, you should hear a click, then open the steam wand and plug machine in and turn on, wait until you see small spurts of steam from wand before closing.

Steam Wand Leaking on La Pavoni Espresso Si


I HAD the same problem. I fixed it for 50 cents. It takes the removal of 4 screws (2 phillips on top, 2 long standard on bottom by the group) to remove the top to access the steam wand valve. Once the the top (and the chrome bezel) is removed, then screw out the valve counterclockwise buy ALL THE WAY until it comes out. There are 2 O-rings on the stem of the valve that wear out, Cut these off with a sharp knife, go to your local hardware store, buy 2 new ones for 50 cents, install new O-rings, and reverse the disassembly procedure. Voila, no more leaky steam valve!
