    Carimali Uno - a New friend

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight

    I happende to get my hands on a Carimali Uno but have some problems to get the water to the group head.

    The pump fills upp here good and steady and the pump starts when I try to make a shot but no water goes the group head. No water is going to the waste either so it do not leave the tank.

    Any suggestions on what can be wrong.

    Someone having a manual for the Uno? or some sort of diagram making it possible to find out how she works.

    Thanks in advance

    My first thought is it could be the group solenoid valve, but if this were the case, water would probably vent to the drip tray when you try to make coffee. However, if the solenoid is blocked by limescale build up, it could be the problem. Or it could be that elsewhere in the machine there is a limescale blockage. Try taking the group solenoid off and see if water comes through the pipe when you push for coffee. Thats probably where i would start if it were my machine...

    Where are you located?
