Question about Pasquini Livietta Espresso Machine

2 Answers

No coffee comes out - button on: It beeps

Hello there, I got this great little Livietta Machine (older Model # 8912215 from a friend who moved away) and was so happy. Now I tried to make an espresso, but no coffee comes out. The machine is ready, milk steams perfectly, but when I switch the right button with the cup above it, the machine beeps like an old steamer and sounds rather like it wants to explode. Some drops coffee come out and that's all, the beeping does not stop. 
I practically grew up with espresso machines in Germany and thought I can handle almost any machine, but this is a mystery to me. What can I do? It seems to me like the machine tries to "soak" water through the system, but somehow does not get any, even though the water tank is filled. Is this a general Pasquini problem or is something blocked? 
I would be so happy if somebody can help me. Does anybody has experience with this problem? Thank you! Chef Ursula

This is confusing to me. This is called priming the pump and not releasing air.

The noise you were experiencing could be from the grind of your coffee is too fine not allowing proper water flow. Remove the portafilter/handle, push brew button - and if the water comes down like rain, there is nothing wrong with the machine - it has to do with the grind, and your grinder may need a adjustment.

If you have a problem with a Pasquini machine, I'd recommend only relying on authorized Pasquini service centers.

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.

Thank you I solved it myself! I found the manual on a German website for my older model Livietta, in Germany called "Maximatic" and followed the instruction. The pump had some air in it and needed to be "released". That was it what caused the horrible noise. Now the machine works just perfect!

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.

Hi, Is the machine still under warranty? If so you may consider bringing it back. Otherwise they sell paets on the Pasquini site -- not sure the one you are looking for is there but you can also contact them. Hope that helps.

I own a vintage Pasquini Livietta cappuccino maker that has recently stopped working. It still produces steam and I can hear the pump working, but no coffee is produced. The machine was working fine before...

Remove the shower screen and make sure it is clear, then remove the screws on the top panel, If after checking screen problem still occurs, find the tube that leads to the head and make sure it is not blocked.

I have a Saeco Incanto Rondo with a grinder related problem

First step.If the grind is to coarse the burrs will spin to fast sensing no beans.
Solution: The grind needs to be finer. Caution you can over adjust causing the clay burrs to shatter.

Coffee maker beeping

Is your grinder in and the lid down? My coffee maker (grind & brew) started beeping after I cleaned it and turned the left knob clockwise with the grinder still disassembled. There's a little button that is depressed when you close the lid with the grinder in there (I'd guess it's a safety feature). I pressed down that button, and the beeping went away.
