    Thanks forleading me to the manual.I have looked it over and it does not seem to address the issue.THere is obviously power and a bit of water t it as the water level is at min. and the top pressure gauge is showing higher with the one under it remaining at 0.The right hand wand and the water are doing nothing when I turn the dials.It is like they are not even responding.
    I just got this machine from someone I knewa to try out and have little history on it.
    Could it need to be re-set or something??

    Thans for the reference to both those places.The machine had need been maintained so we went through the manual and through everything- we now have it working but the auto buttons for designatded shots does not work.It has to be done manually so we will try to contact the references you gave.

It may be defective connection to electric mains, or automatic-filling solenoid valve blocked.

Your La Pavoni Bar though a professional grade coffee maker is relatively straight forward with basic requirements:

  1. 220-240 VAC outlet;
  2. 3/8 diameter incoming water pipe with shut-off valve; and
  3. floor drain.
If for some reason you would feel that it is not functioning correct, perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of authorized and trained La Pavoni installers and/or repair persons. you may want to reference this page.

Should you venture a DIY (do-it-yourself repairs), this parts placement page cold provide you with images of the inter connection and interaction of the different components for an S3 model.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

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.
