Question about La Pavoni Espresso Si PAB-16 Espresso Machine
No matter what I do, or which mode it's in, the steam wand has started to leak water constantly. More vivid when pulling a shot.
It is getting worse and no matter how tight I turn the steam knob off, it still leaks whether it is in coffee mode or steam mode.
What can I do?
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!

As long as original components are used ,or in anyway heat and pressure resistant components because by accidents the insurance not paid out by some great espressomakers there are lead seals on it because accurate pressure tolerances and approval by steam and Metrological Organization. a little machine its not a problem but the great machines La Cimballi La Pavoni are special made and the high prices has all to do with the manyufacturing on safety.

The easiest solution is to replace the steam valve, you can also get a new seat gasket for the steam valve.
