LUCCA A53 / Mini / Vivaldi: Cleaning Hot Water Tap Tubing

Below you will find instructions for cleaning the tubing that delivers hot water to the hot water solenoid/hot water tap on your La Spaziale LUCCA A53 or Vivaldi Espresso Machine.

Tools Needed:

  • Phillips Screwdriver
  • 14mm + 17mm wrench OR 2 Adjustable Wrenches

1. Remove the panels of your machine.

2. Remove the end of the tubing shown here. You may need a second wrench on the solenoid nut to hold it in place while you unthread the 14mm nut. Once unthreaded, it can be a bit tough to get the tubing end out of the fitting, but it will come out with a tug.

3. Clear out the end of the tubing with a pick or something else that will fit inside. It should be free of any scale buildup.

4. Reinstall tubing end into the fitting. This can be a bit tough but it will eventually fit back into place with some physical encouragement.
