Hello All,

This is my first post. I have a La Cimbali Jr that was taken out of local restaurant in town when they closed. The machine is in not plumbed in and has been working well for me until recently. I did some basic cleaning, but not much else when I got he machine. Then one day after have the machine on for a couple hours I went to make espresso and turned the doser knob but to my surprise nothing happened. I haven't been able to engage the the system since. I did take apart the front panel under the brew head to see if there was a connection that lose or broken but I have not found any. I am hoping someone here might give me an idea as to some possible trouble shooting steps as I don't think there is anyone locally (Madison, WI) that works on the machines.

Any advice or help would be much appreciated...

Is the problem no power or is it no water running out of the grouphead?

Seems like a no power situation, but the machine and boiler have power.
