Question about La Pavoni Europiccola EPC-8 Espresso Machine

Open Question

I have an early 70's Pavoni Europiccolo espresso machine that seems to have a burned out heating coil. I get an ohm reading across the low temperature coil but no reading across the high temperature coil. the base of the tank is bolted on by three bolts, and there are four screw terminals, along with a fuse wire held against the tank by a buss bar connecting two of the terminals. My question: is there a replacement coil for this machine? If so, does the coil and base come as a unit, and, if so, how well can I expect this base to fit my machine? (I have heard rumors that the fit is not good) Also, is there any adaptation necessary? Thank you, Bob (strozier5111@bellsouth.net)

Hi.
Will it go on at all? You should be able to turn it about 1/4 turn to the left once it's on. How far can you turn it, if at all?
I'm not sure which filter you're referring to, so I'll cover both:
1. There is a shower screen in the brewing group of the machine. You would have to look up into the group from below, in order to see it. This should be just a press fit, it's held in place by a big O ring. If it's lopsided, you should be able to just push it back up into place.
2. There is a filter that sits in the basket. It's the one that you fill with coffee. It should just sit square in the basket. If it's lopsided, take it out and you should be able to see why it won't sit in there properly.

Fergus.

SOURCE: adding pressure gauge to Pavoni Europiccola

  1. in the boiler water is heated and presured up to 1.5 bar
  2. when water gets in lever and non return valve closes becouse you press the lever down, your energy is used to get high pressure, it should be frpm 7 up to 9 bar.
  3. SOLUTION==if you search way for modifying, you must consider that you must pump directly to group, not to boiler. in this case water will be cold (becouse comes from pump). you will need boiler in boiler to heat the water wich comes from pump before it gets to group. this is bit more complicated than you thought may bee but it is only solution.

Hi there,
It seems to me that your pressure stat which is inside the base of your machine needs replacing. I would try to give it a good descale and if this doesn't do the trick then a new pressure stat is what you need. Prob around £20 if you buy it and do it yourself. www.theespressoshop.co.uk and just click on the little la pavoni machine for full parts list.

La Pavoni Lever Machine Hissing?


Hi there,
If you have a La Pavoni lever model espresso machine and the safety assembley on the top right hisses while the machine is heating up, all you have to do is use something hard but preferably not metal or too large and tap the safety assembly quite firmly but not to hard and this should stop the hissing. This is because inside the assembly there is a bung on a spring and sometimes it becomes stuck and just needs a gentle tap to free it up. If it doesn't stop hissing then you can remove and stretch the spring or if needs be replace the spring and bung.

My francis francis machine doesn't heat up anymore. how can I fix it or where in hawaii??


Hi
If it turns on its noot the thermal fuse on top of the boiler. It can be a couple things. The board is bad or the heating element is bad. Do a ohms reading on the element across the terminals and you should get a reading of 12 to 16 ohms. If you get that its the board. If not its the element. Make sure that the machine is unpluggfed before testing.

I have an europiccola from the 79s that i got off the internet. I can't get it to heat up. I know the fuse is good, the switch is good (i check both) so is the only think the heating coils? If so where can...


If you check the coil with your ohms meter and get no reading then you might be able to find one from crossroads espresso they are the biggest Pavoni dealer 15413444600.

First Cup Is Cold From La Pavoni Europiccola


If the machine works great after the first cup then it is possible that the heat for your first espresso went to heating the portafilter or the cup used to brew into, try warming the portafilter first by running some hot water through it first.
