Hello together I'm from Switzerland. Coffee and cycling are my hobbies. As a sideline, I enjoy running a coffee shop. On my gas-powered machine (similar to Fracino Retro FCL1) the boiler pressure is controlled by this GICAR gas pressostat (first picture). The pressure is regulated with the upper hexagon screw, the height of the lower flame (only to maintain the pressure) with a slotted screw (second picture). I assume the screws work according to the needle valve principle. My questions: - When I turn these control screws it smells like gas. Could it be that the O-ring or the screw are damaged? - Ist it simple to change the o-ring or the screw? - How tricky is the replacement of the gas regulator? Thanks for your help
Hi all, I have a La Pavoni Europiccola for sale. Excellent condition, I would be keeping this but I have a Gaggia G106 (Same as a La Pavoni Pro). Excellent condition externally and internally - pictures to follow. Descaled this evening and she is getting up to temperature nice and quick, lovely smooth lever action, pressure relief valve works as it should. I can also provide a rather old (but working OK) single holed steam tip if taken for the asking price - this is a necessary upgrade on these machines as the standard 3-holed tip is a nightmare to work with! £250 collected from South Oxfordshire. Happy to show working, although I don't have a tamper for this machine (49mm I believe) and i'm more than happy to feed you with a coffee or two courtesy of my own lever machine. I can post, but these lovely machines are very delicate and postage is at your own risk. I will package up well as I would expect to receive it but ultimately, if it's damaged in transit then I can't be liable sadly.
