Lelit Victoria: Adjusting Pump Pressure / OPV

Here is the step-by-step process for adjusting the Over Pressure Valve/pump pressure on the Lelit Victoria espresso machine. (Difficulty ☕☕☕)

Tools Needed:

  • Phillips screwdriver
  • Flathead screwdriver

1. Turn the machine off and allow it to cool down.

2. You'll need to remove the panels of the machine to access the OPV, follow along with our article here on how to remove the panels of the machine: Lelit Victoria Panel Removal.

3. Once the panels are removed, the OPV is easily located to the right side of the machine when facing the back of the unit. Pull the hose off the top of the OPV, have a towel ready since there will be some water that will come out of the tube.


4. Use a flathead screwdriver to adjust the pump counterclockwise to lower pump pressure, or clockwise to raise pump pressure. We recommend small adjustments (1/4 - 1/2 turns at most), then checking pump pressure with a backflush disk before making any major jumps.
