    Looking for service manual /advice Carimali Uno

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi again all fellow coffee snobs .. ;)

    Recently stumbled upon a very nice 88 canary yellow Carimali Uno Beta on a online rotary vanepump hunt for my Ellimatic *and decided to buy it .
    Besides a fawlty power switch , a loose steampipe and the wrong fillerhose delivered with it found it to be in a very good state .
    Took it apart and cleaned the chassis and copperwork . None of the seals /joints showed any exterior signs of calcium residue so decided to try it *out without further tinkering to jets etc *after modifying the hose connection to the pump so it fitted my existing water decalcifier .
    Opened the tap and heard the boiler fill *and it *heated up nicely to my surprise and got to a pressure 1,3 bar easily .
    Sofar so good ...no seals leaking . solenoids work fine and open and close withouth dripping ...pressure boiler valve closes nicely when hot withouth snottering etc *nicely running quiet pump ...
    After backflushing the machine theres first steam coming out of grouphead *but then water starts to pour out ...bit gushy at first but soon it has become a nice even flow wich is good ... but its too little water coming out ... .
    first shots *I took seem burned as it took too long to fill a cup *I suppose .. *

    Been looking on the internet already and the carimali site doesnt offer manuals in the unrestricted area.
    Can anyone help me get a service manual for the Uno or has some advice for me where to check ...
    I think theres a little calcium in the machine left anyway so ill keep trying to backflush it clean in the next days , but the previous owner told me it always has been a bit slow ,(too slow for his taste too) *even when it was under a servicecontract by a coffee company .

    Thanks in advance

    Received a user manual from carimali within a day by sending them a email
    (my compliments for their quick response time).

    After descaling the pump and the kettle separately en a lot of backflushing *for the grouphead and copperlines its performing already pretty acceptable .
    First crema-tic shot with ordinary redmark beans is a fact I had a laugh! *
    If u can get your hands on a machine like the Uno E or P *for little money plse do !
    theyre very nice buildt sturdy *litlle big machines ! With the cast aluminium side panels almost atomic blast proof 8-)

    I have a carimali ete Beta Uno which I think is probably a later and slightly bigger version of yours. I would agree they are built like tanks. Mine also has cast aluminium side frames. The side and back covers are a single piece of 2mm stainless. If yours has the same injector arrangement into the heat exchanger the brew water temperature is adjustable.

    Thanks Andy for your manual. I went to the Carimali site to download a manual. The site was bug..red so I emailed them and they sent a different manual as 34 giffs. So if anyone is interested in the different manual (3 megs) let me know.

    Thanks *for the replys *Guys *sry it took me half a year *to notice :-)
    Did not find the time to finish the Uno , but started working on it last week again .
    Took it completely apart ..descaled completely *now *.
    Looks can be deceiving as there was a lot of scale in the boiler and the rotoflow pump *was running extremely rough and heavy * *,so ordered a new one yesterday together with piston rubbers and boiler seal .

    Henk

    Thank you very much for the manuals Andrew Its appreciated very much ..thumbs!!!

    A little update .. received the replacement rotary pump I ordered from germany and it rocks!!
    No more gusto cremato I had a laugh
    Placed a new shower screen , o- rings and piston rubbers , and its keeping its pressure perfectly making shots .
    What a differencence ..after the M27 this ones a keeper for life!!

    If you are ever thinking of having a smaller commercial machine for a home environtment go for a manual type Uno !!! (Uno P)


    Let the good beans come!! The I-roast will be next!!

    The caramali website is very buggy, and worse if your an international user who wants to get* in to the restricted area. i did manage to sign up a year or so ago if you need any other documents. just send me a pm and ill see if it still works.* ;)

    edit: just found my old user/pw and it still works so can get user manuals/tech manuals if anyone needs them. they also have spare parts price list and exploded views/tech bulletins.

    I have a friend with a Carimali Beta E2 . It wont always re-heat the water after the first few cups. Can anyone steer me towards a manual for this, hopefully with a wiring diagram, so I can try to fix it for him? Thanks for any assistance! Cheers. Mike

    Re: Looking for service manual /advice Carimali Uno

    Gday, I just purchased a Carimali Uno with a faulty pump (which Ill sort out myself) - would be great if someone can pass on a pdf of the manuals (user & service if possible), to me too. Is there anything you feel I should know before tackling the pump. btw: Im fine with electronics, electrics & mechanical work.

    Re: Looking for service manual /advice Carimali Uno

    Perfect timing with the manual, much appreciated, as its time for a strip down / clean of my what was trusty Uno..* My Uno has started misbehaving, when cold / warming up, I get flow through the group head, but as soon as its up to pressure (looks to be normal, nothing too high) all flow stops.* My water intake line is almost too hot to touch, as is the pump which is still rotating, pretty sure that the intake line shouldnt be melting down!* The aeropress has been taken out of the cupboard so dangerous times are afoot, scratching my head as to the problem..* Any ideas?
