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!

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

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!

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
