Question about La Pavoni Pisa PA-35 Espresso Machine

2 Answers


I have a la pavoni pisa, and have apparently blown the fuse on the power cord. I need to access the back of the machine to get to the fuse. Can you tell me how to remove the black steam control knob on the right side of the machine?

    Apparently my machine ran dry and the safety tripped.
    How do I reset it?

    I have what appears to be this same La Pavoni Pisa machine, although mine is called the "Espresso Inn", Dal 1905.  My problem:  the steam knob is slipping on it's shaft.  It feels as if the threads are stripped -- it won't tighten enough to be usable, but won't screw out to be removed and replaced.  How can I get this thing off?  

    Thanks for any help you can provide!  Otis

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!

Wooo Hooo!!!

The knob should pull right off the machine.

La Pavoni Lever Machine Hissing?

Hi there,
If you have a La Pavoni lever model espresso machine and the safety assembley on the top right hisses while the machine is heating up, all you have to do is use something hard but preferably not metal or too large and tap the safety assembly quite firmly but not to hard and this should stop the hissing. This is because inside the assembly there is a bung on a spring and sometimes it becomes stuck and just needs a gentle tap to free it up. If it doesn't stop hissing then you can remove and stretch the spring or if needs be replace the spring and bung.

All the best

My La Pavoni Europiccola "exploded" this morning - I think it is the heating element. Is that a common problem - how expensive and easy is it to fix the machine?

Hi there, i am a domestic espresso machine engineer based in Glasgow and i specialise in La Pavoni machines. If you could get in touch with me at my e-mail address ( i will be able to help you but i will require some info from you about what happened. It sounds like a pressure problem or the thermostat has gone allowing the water to over boil and build up too much pressure. Pressurestat is most probable i reckon. If you give me an idea of what happened i will be able to help you. I work alongside the UK's lead supplier of La Pavoni spairs so have all bits in stock. E-mail me or give me a buzz on 0141 425 1083 and i can sort you out.

I used this site to reset the La Pavoni Cellini machine. The first time it happened I didn't know what it was and sent it back. What a waste of money. All you have to do is unscrew the top with with an small allen wrench, there are three little things plugged in all in a row right on top. Push the second one in. Easy. Thanks to Ckimbo. You saved me a lot of $.
