Question about Pasquini Livia 90 Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Hello, My Pasquini espresso machine has stopped delivering hot water to the coffee basket. Hot water and steam are still delivered to the other outlets. I have tried this both with the coffee basket installed and with it off. Some water drips through the relief valve into the lower tray when the Brew switch is on.

Hi
I would suspect that your 3 way valve is stuck. There is a copper line that goes from the top of the brew head to the right side of the machine to the 3 way valve. That 3 way valve may have to be replaced.

I do not get any water when I push any of three coffee choices. Makes steam and hot water just fine.


First thing I would check is the screen in the group head make sure it is not blocked. Remove and press brew button, if water flows then clean screen. Easiest way is to hold it over an open flame, the coffee will burn before the metal does. If water does not flow then you will have to back wash machine and or descale.

Hello The lights on the front of the machine wont stop flashing so I can't press the cup symbols to make coffee. The hot water is coming out though through the steamer spout. Thanks!


Circuit Priming
When the machine operates for the first time and when
all the water has been dispensed, the machine circuit
needs priming. In this case, the 4 buttons of the control
panel will flash at the same time.
• Press the ON/OFF button . The 4 buttons will
flash.
• Place a container under the cappuccinatore.
• Open the "hot water/steam" knob by turning
it anticlockwise.
• Press the hot water button.
• Wait for water dispensing to stop.
• Close the "hot water/steam" knob by turning it
clockwise. Remove the container.
When the first priming ends, the warming up
starts. Before brewing coffee, water and steam,
please wait for lights 15 and 16 to be permanently on.
The machine is now ready to brew coffee and dispense
steam. Please see related sections for operating details.
Note: if priming is not completed, the 4 buttons
will keep on fl ashing. The machine cannot be
used.

Hello, I have a bialetti mokona, the steemer works fine but when i try to get coffe nothing happens. The coffee deliver led is on. There is enough water in the tank. The hub is hot. Please help


I do not have this model, but on my old one there was a metal cap that would fit over the coffee receptacle (it diverted the steam from the coffee-making process to the wand to steam milk). Sometimes I would forget to remove that cap before I made coffee again.
Do you have anything like that on this machine?

Why does steam wand on dualit espresso leak


The wand can leak if the rocker switch is not in the UP position.

In MIDDLE position it will try to deliver hot water.

In DOWN position it will try to deliver steam.

The thermoblock in this unit is actually a 3-way valve, of which two positions route water from the boiler directly to the wand. The 3rd position (UP) routes hot water (but not steam) from the boiler to the group head.

Try holding the switch in the UP position by hand when making coffee. If the machine still pushes water through the wand then you will have to replace the switch inside the machine that is activated by the rocker, or the valve it operates.

Please let me know how it goes.

Water wont stop dispensing Nuova Simonelli JAZZ Espresso


Hello. We had the same problem, after about 20 cups, the hot water would not stop running out the steam nozzle. The problem is either a faulty Solenoid or a blockage stopping the solenoid from closing. We ran the steam for 5 seconds, then stopped, then steam, then stopped, then water, then stop, and it seemed to clear the blockage. Alternatively, you may need to get the solenoid replaced.

How do I make coffee with a Grindmaster Pourover Coffee maker?


COFFEE PREPARATION PROCEDURES
1) Place filter into brew basket.
2) Put the proper amount of coffee into the filter.
3) Slide the brew basket into holder.
4) Place empty decanter on warmer located directly under the brew basket and turn corresponding warmer switch ON.
5) Pour decanter of fresh water through pour-in opening at top of brewer.
6) Hot water will be delivered through the sprayhead. This distributes the hot water evenly over the coffee bed within the brew basket. The coffee will drain from brew basket into the container below.
7) Red light indicates warmer is ON.
8) Before brewing next pot, remove brew basket from brew rails and dump filter into waste basket.

Pasquini Livia 90 - No water from the group head


The problem could be calcium built up blocking the jet and stopping the flow of water through your 3 way solenoid valve.
Otherwise the 3 way solenoid has stopped working. The 3 way valve part #91004 is $105 + shipping.

If you capable of removing the top and 3 body side of the machine, you can contact me and I can walk you through diagnosing if this is the problem with the jet or the valve. Before you call, make sure you have a philips screwdriver, 14 and 15mm open ended wrench or crescent wrench, flashlight, and paper clip.

My experience is working over 10 years at Pasquini as a master technician running the home repair sales and service center.

I stock all Pasquini parts for any service of your Pasquini espresso machines and grinders. Contact us for any of your Pasquini sales and service needs.

Part 2 -Flashing water light - will drain water but will not make coffee


Blinking light often means pump is not delivering water. Possible blockage from corrosion. Can also mean a valve blocked.
Do you hear the pump run?
