Question about La Pavoni Europiccola EPC-8 Espresso Machine
My La Pavoni has been in storage for a couple of years and now trying to get it up and running. I opened it up and checked all the gaskets, and they seem to be in good shape. However water or espresso drips out of the spout once the machine comes up to pressure. Less so with the espresso in there but if the basket is not loaded then water will flow out fairly quickly. The gaskets on the plunger look ok, I adjusted the nut on the top of the plunger that connects to the handle and helped a bit.
Still I don't recall water flowing out of the while the handle is down.
Any thoughts would be great, its diving me crazy and searched all over for an answer.
Hi there, i am Mr La Pavoni and am based in Glasgow, Scotland. I service and repair these machines all day every day and basically it could be a couple of different things. If it is pre 2000 then it could either be the piston gaskets or the piston shaft has come slightly unscrewed from the piston head. If it is post 2000 then it could be any of the above but also in these models there is an additional sleeve inside the group head which may be cracked or the seal on this part may need replacing. It could even just be a tiny bit of debris on one of the piston gaskets. If you have removed the shower plate and gasket and then taken out the piston assembley then you should really replace these gaskets anyway. You can purchase the parts on my website www.theespressoshop.co.uk which are all individually priced and every part is available for the lever machines. If you require any further assistance then please do not hesitate to get in touch at email@example.com
All the best
Mr La Pavoni
