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.

Water pressure is too low. How to adjust?


If water/pump pressure is below 9 bar, then you will have to adjust the pump. Remove the right side panel, pump is usually located there, find the big brass head with 2 water lines coming to it, on the side of it is an adjustment nut and or screw depending on pump model. Adjust tighter gives more pressure.

I've just plugged in my new 2nd hand machine and water went all over the bench and floor and not in the cup...how can I make a cup of coffee?


Hi
Your inlet water line has become disconnected from the inlet port. There are 2 Torex #10 screws under the water tank You need to remove the bean hopper (2 screws), then there is a screw in the back under the bean hopper. loosen the 2 screw in the front bottom of the main cover (each corner). Lift the back up by the water tank. The hose connects to a filter and its about 3/8 " silicone. It connects to the port (make sure that you get the one that is open because thee are a few that look right) Once connected lower and place a water tank with water in it to check that you got the right one. The reinstall all the screws and you done.

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.

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!

1) The coffee you are using may not be ground finely enough to provide a proper extraction time, resulting in water rushing through the ground coffee much too quickly. Think of it like water running through a handful of pebbles as opposed to a handful of sand. You want "sandier" coffee.

2) Your gasket (the rubber part that seals the portafilter to the group head) may be worn/damaged and is leaking water when you are brewing. Attempt to contact FF! or Saeco to secure a replacement gasket. When you are not using the machine, don't tighten the portafilter all the way in to the head, either leave it completely disengaged or only loosely attached. This saves wear on the gasket.

3) Your brew water may be too hot. Purge your boiler right before brewing by running water into a bowl without the portafilter locked in. After a few seconds the superheated water will be run out and you're ready to brew.
