Question about Nuova Simonelli Oscar Coffee Maker, Espresso Machine

1 Answer


Hi, THe boiler element has been replaced by service as well as the p'stat with a commercial one. Machine is 1.5yrs old. Everything works fine except grouphead temperatures are extremely low.(165Fmax) after 2.5hrs of being on. I double checked with a new digital thermometer and a manual one. the temps were identical. The steam is incredible and the pump works great. Please advise. cheers

    I have exactly the same situation. Oscar is only 7 months old and used very little , but grouphead water temperature tops around 160f. Steam is phenomenal however. This i think is the cause of the ulta fast extraction....and almost immediate blonding. 2 oz in around 10 seconds

Sounds like the safety thermostats on the machine is tripping because the machine is overheating or the circuit breaker is tripping because machine needs more amperage.

Boiler pressure (steamer pressure) is at 0. Usually, when it goes down it comes back up in few minutes but not today. Also, the water coming out for our espresso shots is not as hot as it should be and our...

Problem is either the element, the pressure stat or the reset thermostat on the boiler left side if the model is equipped with one, has tripped, possibly because the machine is low on water in the boiler or the contacts for the pressure stat are damaged or dirty. First I would check the water level in the boiler then remove the left side panel and check the reset switch and press it in, then turn on machine to see if it heats up. If you do not have a reset switch on the machine then check the element and pressure stat to make sure they are working properly, do a resistance test.

My ascaso epresso machine does not heat water, I would like to buy parts for it.

We do not advise you attempt to install a new heating element in this machine. It is extremely meticulous work involving many small parts, you will need metric tools, meters, etc, it requires removing the old boiler, disassemble it, purchasing a new one with the correct gaskets and moving over all the sensors to the new boiler. We do this repair and even for us it is somewhat hairy.

After several failures, I replaced the pressure stat on my Pasquini Livia 90, only to find that the water would not heat. I put back the old stat, but it still doesn't work. Can anyone help?

Check the wire on the water reservoir to make sure that it is properly connected.
Check to make sure the wire connection is clean and making good contact.
If the machine turns on the connection is dirty, so you will need to remove nut and clean.
There is a level probe on top of the boiler (actually 2) The right one (yellow wire) is the low level probe and it will not let the boiler turn on unless it sences water at the probe. If it is scaled it can't tell if there is water in the boiler and the element will not heat. Remove and clean the probe.

La Marzocco Expresso g3 how do you reouble

Check the thermostat on the top of the back boiler, if the red pin is up then, make sure that there is water in the boiler then push in pin and turn machine on. Now comes the exciting part we have to find out why the boiler overheated, is it because the elements are damaged or the pressure stat is not working properly.

Saeco vienna digital not steaming !!

If you get water through the wand, you may have a thermal fuse that is blown or the element in the steam boiler is gone. Let me know if you need one.
