Hi there. problem with my La pavoni PL-16. No coffee comes out. The vapour its ok, it comes out but from the place the coffee should comes out, it doesnt. With or without the the filter holder. Whats...


Hi if there is Vapor coming from the grouphead when the lever is down then I would guess there is a problem with the seals around the piston and possibly elsewhere. Here is a link to a goos site that looks at repairing La Pavoni lever machines. Good luck.

Water leakage through grounds when lever is raised on my La Pavoni Europiccola.


Hi your grind is to course and or your tamp is to loose. Even with the right grind and tamp water will filter down through the puck eventually.

all the best

Coffee exits portafilter too quickly. Rocky grinder with burrs set as close as possible. Grinders and rubber recently replaced.


Sounds like your group handle needs a new basket (the piece with all the small holes in it). Presuming that grind is set correctly and that coffee is being tamped enough? Sometimes as the basket gets older, the holes can get larger and coffee doesn't have enough time to infuse with the coffee before exiting.

Can't remove infuser to clean it


Turning off the power with the button is not enough. Instead, to remove the infuser: unplug the machine, wait a few seconds, plug it in again and turn the machine on. Even though you are technically turning it on, the machine will sense it was not turned off in an ok way, so it will "properly" shut off (and unlock the infuser).

The brew unit is not tamping the ground coffe properly.


Give the brew unit a good wash,then lube all the moving parts with food grade grease.
If you are able dismantle the brew unit and wash in warm soapy water,this removes coffee and any old lubricant.

Coffee tastes waterdown


for grounds you need to tamp the ground hard,. Fill the port a filter to the top then tamp it until the little line is showing. Also what may be a problem is the grind is too fine, or too course

The filter basket on my FrancisFrancis X5 sticks to the machine.


Place a glass under the filter basket. Do not return the portafilter. Pull another shot. The pressure will push the filter basket off.

Saeco portafilter instructions


When using ground coffee, use coarser grind like the size of table salt grain. Feel the ground coffee for adjustment. Do not tamp, just level the cup with coffee grounds and lock the portafilter into the group ring. Pull the handle all the way to the right and hold. Turn espresso hot water switch on. Hold the portafilter pulled all the way to the right for 5 seconds (pre-infusion pressure builds up to 9 bars). Release the handle at the end of 5 seconds. Espresso shots should be max. 2-Oz. in the cup. For larger quantity, use two shots. For an Americano, add hot water instead of allowing 8-Oz. water to pump through the coffee grounds.

Knocked out spent coffe grounds come out mushy not like a puck


Adjust the grind on the machine, or the amount of coffee the grinder puts into the chamber.
