I have a La Marzocco Linea 3 Group machine in our coffee shop. The serial plate shows it was manufactured in 2000, serial number 18988.

I was an electronics tech in the nuclear field for 12 years, and also worked in quality assurance on toxic gas/chem systems for 9 years in the semi conductor industry, so I am very familiar with maintenance/repair work. I've been lied to several times by the local company that provides service to the restaurant industry, including espresso machine maintenance and repairs. I have been told the same by other coffee shop owners. This leaves me in a position of having to perform my own maintenance and repairs.

And so, I am looking for a source for parts for the La Marzocco. I want to have stock on hand for the typical maintenance items (portafilter gaskets/springs/filter baskets, steam valve parts, common switches, solenoid operated valve, etc).

Any input would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks,
JD

Wow, thanks for the fast response Andrew...
I took a quick look and was able to download a parts list document, with technical drawings for the Linea.

What a great help!

Some of the parts require a bit of work yourself. I recently ordered some solenoid valve to banjo tube tubes and flow restrictors for my Linea, I had to tap the thread in order to thread the restrictor in and bend the tube myself. I am not a handy person, so the machine was down for a longer period than I originally planned for.

Yes, I already noticed that my orange "Linea Espresso Machine Troubleshooting Guide" book shows different part numbers than the parts diagrams for the Linea available at ESI.

I am hoping that I can give them a manufacture date and serial number to dial in the correct replacement parts...
I have an extensive background in electronics and steam/gas/water/chemical systems (operation, maintenance, design, fabrication, and certification) in the nuclear and semiconductor industries. I should be able to get the water/steam from point A to point B, even if it requires a little bit of on site modifications...

I am willing to learn and do the work myself after being lied to by the only company in town that services espresso machines/brewers/grinders, etc. That really gets under my skin...
