Izzo Vivi pump still on

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

I recently bought this machine but unfortunately comes damaged. The head is moved little inside which I hope to fix after partial disassembly.

What bothers me the most is the pump - it doesnt turn off. I tried few times - 2mins running 1min off just to not burn it.

The heating is ok and I get pressure something under 0,9bar.

Does anyone know what could be the problem?

Many thanks.

Could be many things, need a lot more information?

 

Mainly though, it's not turning off because it doesn't think it's filled the boiler, presumably it's not the switch under the lever because you don't mention water coming out of the group?

 

so check:

 

wiring

is tank water level going down

Thanks for reply, wiring seems to be ok. The pump is still on, when I lift lever water is coming out of the group and tank water is going down, so it works properly. After putting lever down water stops and I can hear little different sound from pump and water level is not decreasing.

Then the boiler is never filling. Either:

 

Blockage in tube leading to boiler

Blockage in Autofill Solenoid

Failed/bad Autofill solenoid

 

You can confirm by earthing the level probe wire and the pump should stop.

So I finally figured out that the problem was in group lever micro switch. Hope it will work properly now. :act-up:
