Question about La Pavoni LaPavoni Bar S3 Semi-Automatic Espresso Machine Espresso Machine

1 Answer

I have a La Pavoni espresso machine and it has a problem with pressure buildup. Starting last night every few hours, and continuing today up to every five minutes the pressure builds up to where the gage is in the red and I have to turn on the steamers to let the pressure out. I don't know what is wrong with it, and I have no manual as it was bought with the restaurant I took over so I'm looking for any suggestions.

What causes my la pavoni europicola to make a whistling when it;s turned on?


hi
it is normal when water heating up and pressure begin to be built in the boiler until the vacuum braker at the safety valve close
but if it continue to whistle when the green light goes off
after few minutes it means you have too much pressure in the boiler and it is realesed through the safety valve
in that case you have to replace your pressurestat or you have scale at the bottom of boiler in the entrance of the pipe leading to the pressurestat

La pavoni stops boiling water


Run some WHITE vinegar through it, followed by plain water a few times. The heating system gets a buildup in it and requires cleaning from time to time.

My La Pavoni Europiccola "exploded" this morning - I think it is the heating element. Is that a common problem - how expensive and easy is it to fix the machine?


Hi there, i am a domestic espresso machine engineer based in Glasgow and i specialise in La Pavoni machines. If you could get in touch with me at my e-mail address (coffeeservice@live.com) i will be able to help you but i will require some info from you about what happened. It sounds like a pressure problem or the thermostat has gone allowing the water to over boil and build up too much pressure. Pressurestat is most probable i reckon. If you give me an idea of what happened i will be able to help you. I work alongside the UK's lead supplier of La Pavoni spairs so have all bits in stock. E-mail me or give me a buzz on 0141 425 1083 and i can sort you out.

Unregulated pressure then safety valve releases pouring out steam


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.

All the best
