Question about La Pavoni Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
What size tamper do i need for this machine thanks helen
Hi I have one of these in the attic, they do not come with a tamper as they have a fancy pressurised portafilter , its good to level the coffee and if I remember I did used to give it a bit of a tamp as it just didn't seem right not to. I have found a couple of references to tamper size on the web and both say 53mm I can't totally vouch for this though, you can always check with a ruler.

SOURCE: no pressure
The relief valve has a toggle inside that is heat activated. This can stick. I found if you tap it with a spoon the toggle will release and the valve will close.

Ah ha! I just fixed the problem.
The black steam knob is bonded to the shaft. The shaft/knob assembly is removed by rotating the spring keeper on the brass housing the shaft fits into by 90 degrees to allow the shaft to be pulled out once the knob is rotated enough to disengage its thread from the brass housing.
Once the cover over the boiler is removed you will see three thermostats mounted on top of the boiler.
The middle one has the reset button located between the two power connectors. Push it down and you will hear a metallic snap as it resets.
I now have a working La Pavoni Pisa Espresso Machine again and it was free to fix it!

You will need to take the machine apart completely as there are more gaskets inside the group head. You can buy an old group service kit at www.theespressoshop.co.uk for about £20 and it comes with an exploded diagram so you can see what goes where. Don't worry there is no technical mechanical solenoid like the last comment stated. I repair these machines for a living and all it needs is a good service.
All the best
