Question about Pasquini Livia 90 Espresso Machine

Pasquini. Livia 90 intermittently building up too much pressure

My Livia 90 has started building up too much pressure in the tank. If I don't catch it in time, There will be lot of water on the counter top to be wiped up. I found that if I tap the pressure stat lightly, the pressure drops. The pressure stat was changed about one year ago. It has been replaced 3 or 4 times in 6 years. Also, I can turn power off and open the steam valve to reach zero pressure, then turn machine on and it will work normally again.
Any suggestions are appreciated.

The part that will solve your problem is an upgraded heating rewire kit which will control pressure electronically, not manually. The rewire kit is Part #90000, $28

You may also need a new micro switch which is connected to your PStat with the rewire kit. The micro switch part #7633905, $13

These parts are in stock. I can send you these parts and instructions to install these parts in your machine.

Pasquini made an upgrade to the p.stat and element controls, it is a wire that connects the P.stat to the main relay controls. You will have to find the nearest dealer to get one.

My husband removed the steam wand from our Pasquini Livia because I am running out of steam too soon and I thought the wand needed to be tightened. Now we need to know exactly how the springs go back when...


There should be a brass disk also. The spring goes in first, then the brass disk with the curved side down, then the wand, and then the nut.
Low steam pressure, could be a sign of scale build up, or the heater is getting covered with sediment. The heating element is on the bottom of the boiler on a Pasquini. Also check you pressure gauge. It should b shutting off at 1.1bar of pressure. If it is lower that could be another cause of low pressure. It can be turned up by the pressurestat.

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.

Hi
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.

Descaling the livia 90


The proper and only way to descale the boiler should only be done by a trained technician. As far removing the water tank goes, you simply lift it up from the left and right hand sides - this may be difficult if you have never removed it since calcium may have built up on the seal at the bottom of the reservoir - simply wiggle it side to side to remove. To clean the reservoir, you can use a green scour pad with water. If it is heavy build up you can use a product called CLR, and let sit overnight. You can save the CLR and reuse. Rinse well to remove all clr.

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.

Our Livia 90 would need a service + the pressure steam valve is leaking. Thanks in advance ! Thilo


If you are local to us perhaps in Orange County, CA we can provide service. If not you may contact Pasquini to get a local certified repair location near you.

As far as the pressure steam valve goes, you most likely simply need a new o-ring kit... we offer kits for new and older units. Older machines would use Part# KSWV-2 for $5.40, newer units would use Part# KSWV-2 for $4.30. I could explain how you could do this service yourself.

My Livia 90 dosn't build pressure


Clean out the shower screen and the diffuser under the grouphead, turn the head on without the screen and diffuser, if water flows strongly then the problem was in the diffuser and screen, if you have no flow, then the line to the haed is clogged.

Tooo much pressure


If you remove the top panel on the machine there is a pressure stat on the right side, with 2 wire connections going to it. That P.stat could be damaged and needs to be replaced, or the pipe to the P.stat is clogged and it cannot read the boiler pressure.
