Question about Wega Mininova EPU Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Brand new EPU/1 Mininova (just delivered to me in Perth from Melbourne today 12/11/2010). The pressure gauge remains stuck at zero. Earlier, I had managed to get the machine working by using the Hot water dispensing push button and running two big cups of water through the machine. This raised the pressure to about 1.1. I made 1 espresso, that was OK. Then, half-way through making a double espresso, the machine stopped, pressure went back to zero. Manual says to contact technical service if this happens. Please can you assist. Andrew

    I have had to return the machine to the suppliers, in order not to void the warranty. But it seems nonetheless that your solution is quite correct (an airlock somewhere in the machine). Thanks for your expert advice,.Andrew

It sounds like the water line is blocked. There is an obstruction in the line somewhere. This must have happened at the factory. You could disassemble the machine, but would void the warranty. And I believe that you will need the warranty in the future for other problems. I know that it is not the news that you wanted to hear. But if you want to disassemble the machine let me know and I will try to explain.

Im looking to source a wega Mininova espresso machine in SA?


Wega is good, generally, but avoid this Mininova. Tell me if you are looking to a home machine, or for commercial use. Either way, it proved unsuitable. We gave many Mininovas to scrap dealers, having made the mistake of damaging our reputation by promoting them.

Wega espresso


Steam out of the top is a bad safety valve.

Steam out of wands when they're off is bad gaskets in the valves which usually means they need to be rebuilt.

Steam out of groups is a water blockage and/or pressure stat is going bad and causing the machine to over heat.


Can be any one of the following. Need more information to answer properly.

Wega Espresso Machine is slow to recover steam pressure


Bad pressurestat or bad heating element. PS feeds power to heating element, heating the machine til its up to pressure, which then turns the pressure stat off. If either of the two pieces are bad neither will work properly.

Could also be the machine is overfilled which causes the machine to take longer to heat up.

Miniwx epu no water coming from group head to cup no water at cylinoid


Since there is no water at the solenoid, then the blockage must be at the metering jet, which sits under the nut on top of the group, turn of water supply and be careful when removing nut do not damaged o-ring if it is not a teflon O-ring, you might have a leak. Clean out jet and filter then reassemble.

Pump problem


Do you have a manometer on the machine and if yes, what is the reading when you are pulling a shot, does the gauge move, have you opened the side of the machine to see if the pump is turning, you might have to adjust the pressure on the pump by using the adjusting nut instead of replacing the whole thing.
