  • Vibiemme Piccolo help

    I got one of these from a well known auction site a few months ago.
    Didn't turn it on until today (long story).
    First cup OK, then could get any water through the grouphead - only steam.
    Did a fair bit of cleaning, flushing.
    Later in the day made a cup, then it went to steam again.
    Using blind filter does not cause pressure gauge to rise, but it drops away.

    Does this point to anything particular - pressurestat, overheating?

    Previous owner said it was working fine.

    Yes- they tend to say that don't they? Anyone who buys without trying takes the risk..

    Either the thermostat has had it or it needs scace calibration. Regardless, you need to spend some more money and have it assessed/repaired by a competent tech.
