  • La Cimbali M30 Bistro 2 HELP!!!!

    All right well it was about time that I found myself something to pull me out of the instant coffee darkness, having made coffee in large volumes for over a decade, its a bit embarrassing offering the ole hou-se guests a spoonful of death to wet their lips rather than an expertly crafted masterpiece, so anyway after a bit of hunting and some good ole TradeMe skill I managed to secure a Cimbali Bistro 2 for a grand total of $6, yep 6 bucks. Overall machine is in good condition, reasonably tidy, not to much built up crud, but like a lot of Cimbali's of this age, the Button Membrane was buggered, and actually not there when I picked it up. So I'm stuck with a bit of a delimma, I can do 1 of 3 things, turn it into a Manual Machine, replace the Logic Board with a small PLC, or come on here and see if anyone can help me out with the pinouts on the logic board. So here we go, below is a link to a pic of the board, and I'm guessing that you have to connect a combo of resistor pins with diode pins to ascertain whether its group 1 single shot etc, so yeah any help on this would be grand, an electrical schematic of the DT/2 board would be even better.

    Well the coffee gods have shined down from above in the form of a wiring schematic of the internals, all thanks to La Cimbali US, my guess work was correct, the 5 resistors do correspond to the individual buttons and the 5 diodes to the groups and H20, with group 1 starting from the resistor end of the diodes, so time to get to work and mod this baby up.

      A great doc to add to the growing collection in the Documentation - Extreme Machines section.

        Will do, as these machines are fairly ancient and most suffered the same problematic issues with the button membranes, and the logic board is common with a lot of Cimbali's from that era. First on the cards for the machine is a descale, I don't really want to do a whole strip down at the moment if I don't have to, as local pars support could be an issue, so I think I'll give it the ole once over, give it a descale and then go from there.
