Yes the filter is behind the front panel, you will see the pipes leading to the group from the flowmeter, the filters are in there same level with the drain tray, there are also filter in the flowmeter and the inlet solenoid.

Hi, I'll try to help. I'm not sure if your power cut was a factor in this unit not having pressure,but I have a question; when was the lastt time this unit was cleaned with a vinegar solution?? Was the unit cleaned periodically? THe reason I ask, is that during a brewing stage while pressure is applied inside and suddenly the power is off, this may cause deposits with in the unit to break free and clog. I s

La Cimbali M30 Dosatron Technical Manual


Customer can perform daily (hourly) cleaning and back flushing. Which really helps keeping everything working smoothly. Even if the back flushing is done hourly without cleaning powder helps. The best practice I've observed was clearing group(s) after each dosing. (when customer's order is done)

Other function adjustments may require a service key and tech.

These are membrane pads that do require a full replacement as they are all attached on a sheet. Some of the optional buttons are on separate pads but still grouped together.

Dosing can be change though some machines may require a service key.

I cannot find a user manual for my La Cimbali M50 Dolcevita. Can anyone help?


The M50 manual comes in 2 styles; Install and operate which will usually come with a new machine. The technician's book is only available to techs. Though the tech's book is in multiple languages there is certainly a lot of cross translation issues. Cimbali suggests attending their technician's work shop (in Italy) though if your lucky you may be able to spend some quality time with their USA distributor/rep. The M50's, M1,2,3,5 etc. are more complicated than the rough and tumble M30's. It would be wise to have a tech service your machine for the first year and have your own repair guy watch what they do. You can easily master the simple change out. More important is to perform the daily tablet cleaning and when time permits; perform a "no tablet flush" another words; run the cleaning cycle with out the tablet. This flushing helps keep the coffee drips clear from the brewing chamber and spout. Keep in mind that the flush cycle takes and average of 8 mins so perform it during a slow period. ukeboy2@yahoo.com

La Cimbali Junior has no output at the grouphead. The steam wand and hot water dispenser work fine. Any ideas.


Their are four posible reasons for above problem as follows.
First the Vibarating pump not creating pressure, usaly if here the sound it is pressing but not always. You can loose the pipe nut after the pump to see if you have any pressure after you press the coffee button. Be carefull with the water leaking.
Second the coffee solenoid valve that is on the grouphead might be stuck from dry coffee, it can be removed and cleaned with hot water and a wire brush.
Third the coffee group shower and inside round dish might also blocked from dry coffee, remove it and clean it.
Finnaly the more difficult problem might be that heat excanger that is bettween the headgroup and boiler is full off scale. So you must remove group and clean both group and heat excanger and the copper pipes to them.
This problem is the more difficult to be performed however is the most posible.
Good luck,

Hi there we have a la cimbali m30 dosatron and someone has pulled out all the fuses on the pc board and we need to know what sizes they are to replace them. Thanks Simon


There usually no fuses on a M30 dosatron unless it's the "L" shaped supplemental supply board which has a small 250V, 6 3/4 A fuse (half the size of a normal glass tube fuse). Most boards use a similar size but rated at 4 amps for the PC board power protection. The only other fuses (older models) have big 10 amp jobs for the main power to the heater elements. But this has been replace with safety relay and or high thermal limit breakers. you should be able to find both at a hardware store. The smaller fuses at Radio shack or electronic store.

I'm looking at a m30 Dosatron D'Italia coffee machine.


Get it. It is hard to find a Cimbali on the market for a great price. The M30 might be about 6-8 years old. There is nothing on there that you cannot fix yourself.

La Cimbali Owners Manual Wanted


Operators manual only describes how to install and set up. The Technician's manual is translated from Italian and is purposely vague. (Cimbali wants you to go to tech school). Suggest you ask for a annual preventive maintenance from your local service Cimbali dealer. You may need an overhaul/de-scaling which will be very expensive (+$1,000) in labor and parts. (mostly labor as it takes us about 40-50 hours per machine.) Hopefully you just need to change the worn parts in both groups and a vacuum valve. Good luck!
