SOURCE: PROBLEM WITH LOW FLOW/PRESSURE IN GAGGIA COFFEE DELUX COFFEE MAKER

the most likely reason for poor flow through the brewhead is a blockage in the outlet valve.the outlet valve is behind the shower disc holding plate and can be removed with 13mm socket. a straightened paper clip needs to be insrted in the outlet to clear any internal blockage,then pump water through. if the outlet valve splits in two ensure the rubber bung is inserted upwards.once refitted all should be fine

SOURCE: how do I get my breville cafe roma espresso

Same thing happened to me and I had to push down on the water tank a little more firmly. It looked like it was seated okay but I guess it needed to be pushed down more to open the little spring-loaded opening at the bottom.

SOURCE: There isn't enough pressure to pump water through the coffee

Chalk in the system, let it run a couple of times with plain vinegar. just fill the machine with about half a liter (one water container) vinegar and collect the vinegar in a cup so you can reuse it. run the full 0.5 liter, wait an hour and repeat. Than run 2 full watercontainers plain water. should work again. Cheaper than antichalk fluid and works the same

General with machine that the hot water outlet onto the ground coffee is blocked with very fine grounds. You need to clean this hot water outlet. Often there is a philips head screw in the middle of the perforated outlet that has to be undone.

I have the same problem. Machine is brand new, and no faulty or cracked parts. Seems it is a pressure issue, but I don't see a way to reduce the pump power in the manual. Please let me know if this was ever solved.

Brand new machine and the pressure gauge doesn't appear to be working, I've made about 10 coffees over the weekend and experimented with the tamping etc. And the gauge has not moved once? Am I...


It could be a faulty machine, what is your grind setting? Make sure your using the dual wall single cup as a test. Set the grind to around 13 and grind your own beans, don't use supermarket bought beans or preground coffee. Both are garbage.
Also if your using the dual wall basket, make sure that you leave the dial guage in the dual wall setting. Then tamp the coffee so it sits roughly 3-5mm below the rim, this is what I have found is best for this unit.
Then secure group head in to unit, press single cup and you should hopefully get a pressure reading, if it isn't going up you are under extracting and your grind is prob to coarse (correct me if I'm wrong), I've found 13 is not to coarse not to fine. Shouldn't feel like fine sand, when coarse but not powdery.
If the gauge does not move in to the grey area your unit is most likely faulty.

My pressure gauge never moves... do you have to set it up? if so how.. if not when should it work??


Yes, the pressure gauge most definitely should move. The only reason it wouldn't move, assuming no fault, is if there is no resistance for the water between the pump and the outside world, which would be theoretically possible only if your coffee wasn't ground fine enough, or wasn't tamped at all. FYI, the pressure gauge on mine normally ends up at around 1/3rd to 1/2 way around the dial, depending on factors such as grind, tamping, freshness of beans, and whether I use the standard pressurized (dual-wall) basket, or one of the older non-pressurized (singe-wall) baskets.

Failing these obvious issues, you probably have a faulty or disconnected gauge. But how's the coffee?

My kitchenaid artisan coffee machine not enough water


if you have water out brewing without handle with coffee, than you check this 3 things:
  1. how fine is grinded the coffe, is it too fine for your machine?
  2. does pump make enough pressure to brew your coffee(you can measure if you attach an gauge to handle or steam pipe.
  3. by any chance your boiler security valve opens too soon and dont let pump to get the needed pressure. (perfect pressure is from 7 to 9 bar)

La Marzoca 2 group dispense pressure only around 2 or 3


Pump pressure is adjusted at the pump. There is a nut or screw next to the water inlet that is used to change the discharge pressure. This assumes that your pump is running. Your pressure of 2-3 bars sounds like the pump is not running at all. Put your hand on the motor to determine if it is running. If it is not running then that is the problem you need to diagnose. If it is running then it could be the pump or coupling.

I'm looking for Elektra S1 Owner.s manual


if you have 2 gauges, one shows from 0 up to 3 bar second from 0 up to 16 bar.

  1. the gauge o - 3 shows steam pressure and it should be from 1.1 up to 1.5 bar
  2. if you have second gauge you look it during brewing coffee, it should be from 7 up to 9 bar(it shows the pressure of pump.
anyway becouse it is old machine you should compare the gauge with new one(ehamle for the steam attach to steam pipe one gauge and live valve open) than you will know if it is showing true values.
