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.

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 you bleed a diesel pump jeep Cherokee turbo diesel 3.1 5 cylinder 2001


we dont have this engine here, USA.
but i have the WG jeep book,
starting page 12 , chapter 14


FUEL INJECTION PUMP BLEEDING
(1) If the fuel injection pump has been replaced,
air should be bled at the overflow valve before
attempting to start engine.
(a) Loosen the overflow valve (Fig. 18) at the
rear of the injection pump.
(b) Place a towel below the valve.
WARNING: WHEN CRANKING THE ENGINE TO
BLEED AIR FROM THE INJECTION PUMP, THE
ENGINE MAY START. PLACE THE TRANSMISSION
IN NEUTRAL OR PARK AND SET PARKING BRAKE
BEFORE ENGAGING THE STARTER MOTOR.
CAUTION: Do not engage the starter motor for
more than 30 seconds at a time. Allow 2 minutes
between cranking intervals.
(2) Crank the engine for 30 seconds at a time to
allow air trapped in the injection pump to vent out
the fuel injector drain tubes. Continue this procedure
until the engine starts. Observe the previous WARNING
and CAUTION.
(3) Tighten overflow valve.
HIGH-PRESSURE FUEL LINE BLEEDING
WARNING: THE INJECTION PUMP SUPPLIES HIGH-
-PRESSURE FUEL OF APPROXIMATELY 45,000 KPA
(6,526 PSI) TO EACH INDIVIDUAL INJECTOR
THROUGH THE HIGH-PRESSURE LINES. FUEL
UNDER THIS AMOUNT OF PRESSURE CAN PENETRATE
THE SKIN AND CAUSE PERSONAL INJURY.
WEAR SAFETY GOGGLES AND ADEQUATE PROTECTIVE
CLOTHING AND AVOID CONTACT WITH
FUEL SPRAY WHEN BLEEDING HIGH-PRESSURE
FUEL LINES.
WARNING: DO NOT BLEED AIR FROM THE FUEL
SYSTEM OF A HOT ENGINE. DO NOT ALLOW FUEL
TO SPRAY ONTO THE EXHAUST MANIFOLD WHEN
BLEEDING AIR FROM THE FUEL SYSTEM.
Bleed air from one injector at time.
(1) Loosen the high-pressure fuel line fitting at
the injector (Fig. 19).
(2) Crank the engine until all air has been bled
from the line. Do not operate the starter motor
for longer than 30 seconds. Wait 2 minutes
between cranking intervals.
(3) Start the engine and bleed one injector at a
time until the engine runs smoothly.

I would first check the switch on the front to ensure it is set for CH & Water. Push bottom of the switch, check you have a pressure of 1 bar on the gauge to the left of the front panel. If not, top up until it gets to 1 bar. Ensure a demand is being called for (the timer is asking for heat) by pushing the CH button until the grey line is alongside 24 hr. then check if the central heating pump vibrating. If still not come back to me for more info

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.

Oh no, you have bought a "Runyes" Chinese unit. "Run - Yes" is the best option. Sell it & buy something better.
But, E4 is to do with Temp or Pressure not right.
"

Code E4:constant temperature and constant pressure failed.

(the chamber pressure tolerance is greater than 0.25bar or temperature tolerance greater than 2.5?)


Solution:

A. please check if you can open the solenoid valve which the steam gets into.


B. please refer to E2 process
---------------------
For E2 try:

Code E2:Chamber overpressure

(The chamber pressure is above 2.4 bar for longer than 2 seconds)


Solution:

A. Please check when the pressure rises, the chamber inner temperature will also rise up. If not or rise up very slowly, then you should check the inner temperature sensor, please refer to E1-C1 process.


B. The chamber keep vacuum pressure, the vacuum pressure will be -0.7 bar within 4 minutes under normally room temperature, and it will above 0.1 bar within 5 minutes if the pressure do not leak out, otherwise, you should check the chamber cover, solenoid valve, safety valve, vacuum pump, connector welded points, till you find the problems where and why the pressure leak out, then solve the problems if you find it.

C. During the machine normally working cycle, please observe if the machine vacuum could be lower than -0.6 bar, even lower than -0.7 bar if the machine is still cold.


D. Adjust the chamber cover and tighten a little if necessary.

E. When you run a cycle for the first time with a packed or non packed instruments and it comes up with E2, please don't worry. It will not come out with the E2 alarm again when you run it the second time.

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.

How to put freon in?


Warning: It's a federal crime for anyone not EPA certified to charge a unit.

With that being said,The charging ports are located on the outside unit,You will need the proper set of gauges,an outside ambient air thermometer,a jug of refrigerant,an adjustable wrench,and the proper size allen wrench.

You will need to attach one end of the yellow(center) hose to the tank(leave the valve on the tank closed for now) and leave the other on the gauge manifold,Attach one end of the blue hose (left)to the suction line(the big one) and leave the other attach to the gauge manifold,Attach one end of the red hose(right) to the high pressure line(The small one)and leave the other attach to the gauge manifold.You will then need to take the temperature around the unit(ambient temperature)once this is done,you are ready to charge the unit.

You will need to remove the brass cap on the charging port,Insert allen wrench and slowly open the valve,the pressure on the gauges will rise to the current pressure,You will now need to start the unit and let it run for about 5 minutes or so,until the pressure stabilizes on the gauges.With the temperature from earlier you can begin charging the unit,but without me knowing what the temp is I can't tell you what pressure to charge it to,So the remaining steps cannot be completed.

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.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance.
A FixYa rating (4 blue diamonds) would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
