Hi all, I'm trying to sell my dads La Pavoni Europiccola espresso machine but he has forgotten how to use it.

I downloaded the instruction manual but i just wanted to run water though it to make sure it works before i advertise it.
I filled the boiler with water, waited to the light to go out, released the pressure, once up to temp i lifted the lever and here is the question the water poured out once the lever got to the top and nothing came out when i pulled it down. Is this because i did not have coffee or a filter in it? I would really appreciate any advice or suggestions on how to test further so i can sell confidently.

Many thanks =)
