9) Close the valve until the pressure
gauge indicates 12 bar.
Constantly monitor the pressure
gauge and if required readjust the
valve. As the temperature
increases, so does the pressure,
readjust the pressure to 12 bar
10) Carry out measurement for approx.
11) Control measuring cup: at least 60 -
120 ml of water must be in the measur-
12) Open the valve and let water flow out
of the pressure tester.
Should < 60 ml leak out, then the pump
is defective or there is a leak in the
Large deviations in indicated pressure
while measuring (± 4 bar) means that
the pump is defective.
8.4 Pressure and leakage checks
Check the following parts of the coffee machine for leakages:
Seal between movable part of brewing unit and capsule cage
Connection between capsule cage and thermoblock (no visual check possible,
