Help! Where to fix espresso machine?
My espresso machine recently stopped working.....kind of. It is an Expobar Leva 1 Gr Office semi-auto espresso machine. Similar machine to shown below:
The pressure when the machine is operating is very weak and would barely squeeze coffee out. The pump would also get very loud at first, but then the machine would lose pressure, then when the pressure is completely lost the pump becomes quiet (but still humming/buzzing). Verified full tank of water when this happens.
I don't think it is a problem of clogged tanks or tubes since I use distilled water exclusively and regularly clean the inside of the machine with the cleaning powder. I also replaced a tube with a pinhole leak, which didn't solve the problem.
Does anyone know what might be wrong with my machine, where I can get my machine fixed or at least bring it to a shop that knows what to do? I can also DIY to a certain point.
Your help is much appreciated!
