Unplug the machine. just unscrew the nut of the steam shaft. Take out the shaft by turning anti-clockwise the plastic knob until the whole shaft comes out. clean the inside of the attached shaft with a small wire brush. rinse under running water until water comes out the other end. try to straighten the bent shaft (one with the plastic knob) put it all back.

Ah ha! I just fixed the problem.

The black steam knob is bonded to the shaft. The shaft/knob assembly is removed by rotating the spring keeper on the brass housing the shaft fits into by 90 degrees to allow the shaft to be pulled out once the knob is rotated enough to disengage its thread from the brass housing.

Once the cover over the boiler is removed you will see three thermostats mounted on top of the boiler.

The middle one has the reset button located between the two power connectors. Push it down and you will hear a metallic snap as it resets.

I now have a working La Pavoni Pisa Espresso Machine again and it was free to fix it!

Wooo Hooo!!!

SOURCE: Leaking water from the group and steam spout

Hi there,
You will need to take the machine apart completely as there are more gaskets inside the group head. You can buy an old group service kit at www.theespressoshop.co.uk for about £20 and it comes with an exploded diagram so you can see what goes where. Don't worry there is no technical mechanical solenoid like the last comment stated. I repair these machines for a living and all it needs is a good service.

All the best

SOURCE: Steam Wand Leaking on La Pavoni Espresso Si

I HAD the same problem. I fixed it for 50 cents. It takes the removal of 4 screws (2 phillips on top, 2 long standard on bottom by the group) to remove the top to access the steam wand valve. Once the the top (and the chrome bezel) is removed, then screw out the valve counterclockwise buy ALL THE WAY until it comes out. There are 2 O-rings on the stem of the valve that wear out, Cut these off with a sharp knife, go to your local hardware store, buy 2 new ones for 50 cents, install new O-rings, and reverse the disassembly procedure. Voila, no more leaky steam valve!

SOURCE: When I turn on the brew switch the steam wand

Your machine propably got a small mineral deposit which has lodged in the steam valve blocking it to close tight. This can move out by making descaling some times repeativly. However this can happent only by 30 % if you are lucky.
If not then machine need to be desasemble and removing the valve and clean it with a wire brush. Unfortunatly this is the only way if the 4-5 times of descaling fail to move the mineral deposit.
Hope you are from the lucky ones, thank you for your positive voting

Hello,\r\n I have a Pavoni and when I plug it in the wall socket my fuses blow out from the house. I took the machine to an electrician and he mentions the resistance inside the machine is bad. where can I...


The electrician didn't do anything except confirm that the machine has a fault that is blowing fuses. Resistance is not a part, is an electrical property of the part. Electrical current is the voltage divided by the resistance, so if you don't have enough resistance you get too much current. The fault could be anything from a bad switch to shorted terminals on the heater. Essentially you have to take it apart and check the components. My procedure would be to do a visual inspection first for bad insulation, electrical terminals touching each other or the metal parts of the machine, cracked heater, signs that water is leaking into the circuitry, etc.

If the machine blows the fuse even when it is turned off, the problem is almost certainly the power cord or at the switch. The most likely place for the power cord to fail with a short (other than an improperly installed replacement plug) would be where it goes into the machine. Look closely for cracked or broken insulation both on the inside and the outside of the machine.

After that I would use an ohmmeter to check the electrical resistance of parts. For example, if the coffee pot is rated for 10 Amps, the heater resistance should be 120 Volts / 10 Amps = 12 Ohms. Since your model is rated between 800-1000 Watts, (7.1 - 8.3 Amps), the heater resistance should be at least 14.1 Ohms. The indicator lamp should read "out of range" if it is a neon bulb, but may read several ohms if it is incandescent (the resistance of incandescent bulbs increases as they get hot).

One possible source of the problem is a leaky steam pressure switch. If water is getting into the electrical part of the switch, it could be causing a ground fault.

If the power cord is bad, you can cut off the bad part and rewire with the remainder (if it is still long enough for you), or you can replace it with any 16 gauge power cord of the same style rated for elevated temperature use. "For La Pavoni replacement parts and service, please contact La Pavoni USA at 1-800-927-0277" (from the Pavoni website).

Steam wands on espresso machine wont work


There should be a boiler pressure and water pressure guage. If there is no pressure on the boiler guage that could mean a heating element or pressure stat problem.

System is not priming


This is normal after you leave the machine unused for a long time. The water dirt or scale or both make many parts to stuck like glue. The presure pump might be stuck if even if you here the noise of the vibration the outlet have been blocked. another part that can be stuck for the same reason is the water solenoid. Both can be fixed by remove them desasemble them and clean them with a wire brush. If you have a litle technician knowladge this is a very simple operation. Of course if you persist you might unsuck by trying the procedure you mention but it seems that now it is hard to be hapen.
Good Luck

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.

Steam fitting leaks


Hi there,
Yes you require a special spanner which has a slight bend at the top. You can get them at most hardware or mechanic style stores as it is a type of tool mechanics would use. I believe it to be either a 16mm or 19mm. Once you have a tool that fits, hold onto nut inside boiler and unscrew the steam assembly in an anti-clockwise fashion and remove. there will be a brass washer and nut which will probably fall into the boiler. Remove these from boiler and if you go to www.theespressoshop.co.uk and click on the la pavoni machine on the right it will take you to a full parts list where you can purchase a new washer and nut. Then just re-attatch in opposite fashion.
I hope this helps.

All the best
