Hello, I have a Brugnetti MC-1 Espresso Machine. It had not been used for a couple of years and then I tried to make some espresso with it one day. I plugged in the machine and everything seemed to be working fine. I waited for the machine to reach the recommended temperature prior to pressing the brew button and to my surprise the water started coming out of a small hole located on the procon pump. When I inquired about what the problem may have been, I was told that the pump had become stuck due to the machine not being used for a while. I took off the procon pump and effectively, the little axle on the procom pump which has a notch that receives the electrical motor that drives the pump was stuck. I took a pair a pliers and tried to get the axle unstuck on the procon pump by manually turning the axle and sure enough it became unstuck however, as I kept spinning it with my fingers, every once in a while it seems to get stuck again but not to the point that I need a tool to get it unstuck, I just have to turn it a little harder with my fingers. For this reason, I decided to purchase a new procon pump and switched out the old one for the new one. I've been doing some research as to what needs to be done when one swithces out the pump and in that research I came across a recommendation that the water solenoid needs to be opened in order for the tank/ boiler to fill up and I don't know how to go about doing that since my main concern is not doing more damage to the machine. I would also like to know what needs to be done to the group components in order to maintain it in optimal working condition. I've already removed a small screen on the the group head and cleaned it out thoroughly as well as a nother piece made of brass which the screen screws on to. If anyone could provide any expert advise, experience, suggestions or guidance as to what to do after replacing the pump and prior to turning on the machine again as well as regular maintainance on the machine, it would be greatly appreciated. Best regards, Richard Granados
