I have a Pasquini Cadet, the last residential machine Pasquini sold before leaving that market in the late 70s (ish). It is my understanding that the Livia's was Pasquini's return.
I have very little info on it.
It's 120v, when I add water and test, the release valve starts to push expanding water right out...
I need to mod some fittings to get a standard current release valve to stay on.
BUT...the element, pump, and switches all work.

So I'm wondering if anybody knows where I may be able to find info on one of these?
Pasquini Espresso Company USA did not exist then, or was a different outfit, so they cannot help me.

thx!

I would love to help but your terms are a little fuzzy.
What is a release valve?

There are a few items that fit into that possible function.
Is it in the steam line and let's pressure out of the machine while it is warming up?
is it in the brew path and the function is to regulate the brew pressure to 9 bar?

Most often with older machines you will need to do the work yourself when it comes to replacement parts.

The part looks like the emergency release, not a vacuum valve. It's on a pipe extending off boiler, sits on pipe end, like the p-stat on a Pasquini. It has a bowl around it, I assume to keep released spray from hitting exposed contacts and the pcb.
Overall the machine internally looks similar to a 120v Conti with a rotary pump.
Has a much simpler board though.
A big time pro gave me a valve that is similar, but I need to go to a large hardware store we both use and find a coupler in their plumbing section.
I'm just amazed I can find NO documentation of any kind anywhere.
