    Faema Elite Bypass Valve ?

    Our first post! Check out our store and machine on YouTube...(website URL)

    Ok...She is a fine girl, but a little tempermental.

    Her boiler bar has a redline at 12, and when she feels like it....She whines and the gauge jumps to 14bar !

    No shot will pull when this occurs. The manual says to adjust the Bypass Valve.

    Is this a common occurrence? We took off the side panel, and found a valve labeled "Bypass"....Our valve has no adjustment.

    Were glad to be a new member here, and look forward to hearing from you!

    :-/ *It turns out that this only happens intermittently, and when it does....Faema our lovely tempermental italian beauty.....Refuses to pull a shot!

    Has anyone ever had to adjust or mess with one of these Bypass Valves? *We have the PDF from Faema, but it doesnt match the ELITE!!

    Regards ;)

    Thats the reading for your pump pressure that youre seeing skyrocket to 12 bar.

    How old is the machine?? Perhaps the pump is on its way out?

    The bypass valve, COULD and probably should, be under your drip tray. Or, either way it should be near where your water inlet hose "meets the machine".

    This valve will probably have a slotted front, in which case you should try regulating it anti clock -wise.


    Or, perhaps your pump need to be adjusted at the pump.
