The micro screen is clogged. If front panel is removed, you will see a pipe leading to each of the heads, At the bottom of this line close to the top of the drain tray there will be a fitting (you need a 17mm open end and a cressent). Make sure water is turned off and machine is cool. When fitting is unscrewed there will be 2 copper washers and a small fitting with a silver screen inside it. Clean screen and make sure that the small hole in the fitting is clear.

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.

How can I use la cimbali m39 dosatron

The M-39 is a semi-automatic espresso machine. There are quite a few vids on you tube showing how to set up and operate. You will need it to be installed with the proper utilities; Electrical (240VAC), Water (plumbed in or from a 5 gal water jug).
* requires potafilter, Basket inserts for; single, double shots, Back flush disk, Group cleaning brush.
* Drain hose and someplace for the drainage to go (a floor drain, sink, or bucket.)
* A solid strong table or counter with space enough for 1 or more coffee bean grinders (regular and De-cafe beans) But you can get pre-ground coffee to start with.
* Review on line for Barista training or get a trained Barista to show you. Call your service provider as many have training classes.
* Check with a local coffee shop and check how they do things. People love to talk about their coffee.

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.

Hold down the stop button for 8-10 seconds or until you hear the faint beeping sound, press button to program when you get the correct level press stop button. On some models you have to hold the button until you get the correct level then release. When you are done programming press stop button a second time to exit program mode.
