Question about La Pavoni "ROMANTICA Brass" 16Cup

1 Answer

I have a lapavoni europacola machine and there is a small pipe that comes down between the lever and the steam pipe for the cappuccino. This pipe has been bent up into a "v" position. I bent it back down but I am wondering if the machine will still operate. I do not know what this pipe is used for . Thank you

Hi there,
This pipe as you will see has a collar at the top with a large bolt in the middle. This is a steam release device. Inside the bolt there is a bung and a spring which is basically if the boiler over pressurises, steam will push past the bung and hiss from the bolt. Obviously with steam you will get condensation so when the machine is coming to pressure you will get some steam coming out until the bung forms the seal and any condensation will channel down the pipe and into the drip tray below. This pipe should not be bent into a V shape and should point down towards the back of the group head so the end it directly above the drip tray. Any problems or still unsure then please get in touch at

All the best

No hot water from the delivery pipe, nor steam for cappuccino

If the machine is constantly showing "in Preparation"
The fault lies in the boiler circuit.
Either :-
Steam element is open circuit. (7332212600)
Temperature sensor is faulty (5232105100)
The Thermal Cut Out (TCO) (5232105000)
fuse has gone open circuit.

All three of these can be tested with a multimeter with the
machine SWITCHED OFF and unplugged !!!!!

If you do not know what a multimeter is then I suggest that you return the machine for repair as their are DANGEROUS VOLTAGES within the machine which will KILL you.

Cannot get steam to come out of my delonghi prima donna XS coffee machine

Could not find why but maybe if you go back over the scaling procedure and steam procedure there might be something you missed.
Please note! If "Energy saving" is active, you may have to wait a few seconds before hot water and steam are delivered.
Steam delivery 1. Make sure the hot water spout is attached correctly (fig. 7). 2. Fill a container with the liquid to be heated/frothed and immerse the spout/cappuccino maker (D5) in the liquid. 3. Press the steam ( ) button. After a few seconds, the steam to heat the liquid comes out of the cappuccino maker and "STEAM" is displayed. 4. When the required temperature is obtained, interrupt steam delivery by pressing the steam ( ) button again. (You should not discharge steam for more than 3 minutes at a time).

How do i make foam for cappuccino with my ascasco dream machine ? I can only manage hot milk at moment

On the steam pipe end their is a small hole on the side of the pipe. You should keep this hole always above the surface of the milk. When the milk rise up try to keep the hole above it. If you keep it exactly on the surface of the milk then big bubles will **** back again and become smaller and finer and your fioam stronger and better.

Try to open the steam knob and turn on the button to make coffee, when the water flow out off the steam pipe, close the knob and the button.

Loud noise

Not sure I understand the pump making a lot of noise?
If so it might have sucked in some air. Run some water through your steam pipe until all the air has been pushed through.
