    Hi all, at my wits end... 😞 I've had my machine for about 7 years. Always been able to dial in well when buying good coffee. Iberital grinder. I've been buying Limini and was at an all time high with amazing crema and taste. Then... Bad espresso. Barely any crema. Tried running water through...

    Not sure what I have done wrong. I installed a C100 PIDand thought I followed all instructions but heating continued past the alarms. I then took the PID out and the problemremains. Checking the wiring it seems fine (compared to photos onhere) but obviously isn't. I left the PID powered and...

    Hi there, I'm hoping someone can help as my Classic is on the blink. When turned on normally it's started overheating to steam temperature, as though the switch has been set to steam (which it hasn't). The machine is very old now and I was considering an upgrade anyway, so depending on how...

    My 4 Year old Cherub has overheated a couple of times in the last few months, presumably setting off the pressure relief valve. Does it maybe need a service? Gaz
  5. Lever Forum
    Hey Guys, I've recently fixed up two la pavoni's I've bought on Ebay. The idea was to kinda fix up and learn about Lever Machines as I'm used to a Rancilio Silvia, and sell off the machines I no longer use. After much more repair that I had anticipated, I have gotten them both working, one is...

    I recently changed the brew head gasket and it's a much tighter fit for sure but it's got to the point I can hardly get the wretched thing in at all. It's OK if I put the pf in when the machine is cold but I have to turn it off and allow it to cool down again before I can get it back out again...
  7. Rocket Forum
    I was using my Appartamento yesterday and all of a sudden I noticed the gauge (steam boiler) spike well beyond the green zone, to over 2 BAR. At the same time it made an awful noise and pressure was automatically released via the 3-way solenoid valve (that also removes excess water from the...

    I've just replaced the seals in the steam/water valve on my gaggia platinum vision as it was leaking from the valve stem. I'm trying to run a test brew with the casings off so I can see if it's still leaking from there and, if it's not, to check if there are any other leaks. Powering on, I...

  11. Rancilio Forum
    I got my sister's Rancilio Sylva, which was in storage for 4 years. I followed the instructions, and had lights on and all was going well, until the main power tripped in the kitchen. After some investigation, it seems the coffee machine is causing a trip after a couple minutes heating up. I'm...
  12. Gaggia Forum
    Hi, our 'Gaggia Coffee' has recently started to heat the water up too much, and I've noticed that it heats the water in the plastic water holder (hot steam/water comes down the white rubber tube (the whiter one) that hangs into the water tank). Is this due to the (107C) thermostat gone faulty...
