Question about ECM Giotto Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Air pressure excessive

Our machine previously showed 1 Bar of pressure when ready. Now if unattended air pressure will rise about the warning red line, and will eventually expel pressure and kick off the wall circuit breaker.

What needs to be replaced?

Thanks

    The manual says

    Model: Giotto
    Manufactured in 1997

    Thanks for the lightening response!

  • videoharmony Mar 02, 2008

    The only label with information is on the bottom of the unit

    ECM Model: Giotto
    SN 20030201005
    Pump pressure 9 Bar
    Boiler pressure 1 Bar

    I purchased from Burgess Enterprises

    Hope this helps.

    No, this machine is 10 years old and had warranty for 2 years. What are my options?

That's a valve that's in line with the internal plumbing..that's all that restricts that pressure, which can build quite high.

can you provide the exact model number, please?

    Giotto is the manufacturer. on the back of the machine is a model number/part number..please find that and report back ..thanks

    ok..that's the ticket..there's a pressure valve that regulates the pump pressure, that apparently is no good. Do you have a service plan?

  • Patrick Michaels
    Patrick Michaels Mar 02, 2008

    hmm..ok...

    the part is self is not too hard to find. Perhaps, you might consider trading it in for a newer model, or finding a local service person that still works on the older machines(hint: find someone that has more than 5 years of background , eh)?

    if you want to do it yourself, then you'll need a full parts and service manual

How do I take apart a dewalt d5141 compr3ssor?


This number is for the D20114 its the safety valve that can not be set to a max basic pressure .
its strange but its not adjustable it can be defect i have one time the same the experience there is not a adjustable Pressure Switch on this model , the moast compressors have a 8 to12 bar adjustable.pressure switch.
Very important This safety valve gives an electronic brake between the pump and to a end of top about 10 bar . if its not switching off then a drain valve opened . and blows all the air out. (but only over 10 bar ) the max pressure on the tank , the moast tools are working on a pressure from 6 to 8 bar.
-----------------------------------------

Checking Safety Valve
WARNING: Risk of bursting. If the safety valve does not work
properly, over-pressurization may occur, causing air tank rupture or
an explosion.
Before starting compressor, pull the ring on the safety valve to
make sure that the safety valve operates freely. If the valve is
stuck or does not operate smoothly, it must be replaced with the
same type of valve.
Draining Air Tank (Fig. 1)
WARNING: Risk of unsafe operation. Risk from noise. Air tanks
contain high pressure air. Keep face and other body parts away from
outlet of drain. Use safety glasses when draining as debris can be
kicked up into face. Use ANSI S12.6 (S3.19) ear protection as air flow
noise is loud when draining.
NOTE: All compressed air systems generate condensate that
accumulates in any drain point (e.g., tanks, filter, aftercoolers,
dryers). This condensate contains lubricating oil and/or substances
which may be regulated and must be disposed of in accordance with
local, state, and federal laws and regulations.
1. Ensure On/Off switch (A) is in the OFF position.
2. Move compressor into an inclined position so drain valve (H) is
at the lowest point (this will assist in removing moisture, dirt, etc.
from air tanks)
3. Place a suitable container under the drain valve to catch
discharge.
4. Grasp black lever on drain valve.
5. Slowly rotate lever to gradually bleed air from air tank.
6. When air tank pressure gauge reads 10 PSI (275.1 kPa), rotate
valve to the fully open position.
7. Close drain valve when finished

I have a worcester 28cdi combi boiler. The pressure keeps going up yo 3 bar when the heating is on, and venting of via the pressure valve. When the boiler cools down the pressure drops to zero, and I have...


Your boiler has an expansion vessel that is like a bladder full of air. Yours has lost it's air pressure. Check your manual for this vessel and where the valve is to re-inflate it and what pressure to inflate to. It should have a simple tyre valve, pump it back up (usually to about 1 bar after releasing the water pressure) and should be all fixed. If you can't re-inflate the bladder is holed and the expansion vessel will need replacing.

After driving for about 4-6 hours the temp rises


You should have your a/c system ck'd. Reason could be excessive system pressure and temp. This would explain the a/c safety turning off the a/c and the temp rise of the engine cooling system. Good Luck.

I HAVE A GOODMAN CPL E30-1 , HOW DO YOU CHECK THE HEAT STRIPS ARE WORKING ? WERE WOULD CHECK THE TEMP AT ?HOW CAN YOU TELL IF THE HEAT PUMP IS WORKING RIGHT .WHAT IS THE COMMON THINGS A TECH SOULD CHECK...


First, you need to get the spec sheet for that unit from www.goodmanmfg.com, go to bottom, click on Partner link, then put in goodman for id, dealer for pass, go to InfoFinder in the Toolkit. under model, put CPLE, under lit type dropdown put spec sheet. Click on the RED SS number in the fourth column. In the spec sheet, print out the Expanded Heating Data sheet for your CPLE30. It shows the outdoor ambient temp, follow that column to the bottom and it shows the pressures you should have. They are very very close it unit is working correctly. It also has a DeltaT for airflow. So, now you can put stat at 1 degree differential so only heat pump comes on and check temp rise and pressures. If both pressures are low, you have lost some charge. As for heat strips, turn stat up 2 or more degrees or put it in Emergency heat. Then the strips should come on....sequencer may delay stages. Then you need to use amp clamp to see if individual heat elements are pulling amps. In E heat, you need to go online and get a CFM/Kw temp rise chart. It will show you what your temp rise from return to supply should be at your cfm with the amount of heat you have..i.e. 10kw, 15kw, etc. If it is cold out and your heat pump is running with no aux heat, the temp rise will get lower as the outdoor temp falls, so alone it will not be able to keep up.

2004 toyota sienna warning lights


That symbol is the low tire pressure light. You have a tire that is right at the minimum threshold. The light goes off as the tire temperature rises, and, as the temp rises, the internal air pressure also rises slightly. Just check the tires with a good pressure gauge, inflate them to the specs printed on the tag inside your driver's side door, and you will be just fine.
