Question about ECM Giotto Espresso Machine
Had it repaired worked for about 2 weeks then it wouldn't heat up. Espresso came out tepid. Turn the steam valve on, and pressure immediately plummeted. Then it started to work properly for about a week before the problem resurfaced. Today a new one - pumps cuts out when the lever is lifted to pour an espresso. Water just barely warm. In the shop the following had been done: pressure adjusted, replaced safety valve, liquid level probe and 2 gaskets.
My friend, had the same feeling,,,What have a done !! This piece of junk for all my dollars! No ,,it needs cleaning. Read all my comments re this. You can open this machine witha few fixed keys and mantain it. It will outlast you, when correctly mantained. All solid cupper and metal, no plastic. take it apart and CLEAN IT!
Remember - it is built by a human beeing. The ECM is a buty as it has very little automation built in. Very siple function = löong time in love with your machine. It is totally ANALOG = tweek it = better cogffee. /// Olev

I am having a similar problem. Doesn't happen all the time, just sometimes. My research has led me to believe it might be the vacuum breaker valve. I am going to order a new one here:
I'll replace mine & post if it fixes it.
