Adjusting the Thermostat on the La Pavoni Lever Handle

It always seems to run a bit hot, hence the requirement to reduce the thermostat pressure.

Remove the Torx screw under the drip tray, remove lower cover and locate thermostat, this is identified by the unit that has a wire going in, then to the boiler element. Also easily identified by the ‘geared’ wheel which permits adjustment.

This geared wheel is typically glued in place, however a bit of tweaking can get it released and adjusting the pressure.

Clockwise for increased pressure – anti-clockwise for decreased pressure.
