Bezzera BZ16 PM HX Semi-Automatic Espresso Machine

Heat exchange system:
  • Copper – The boiler is copper which retains heat better than stainless steel. Typically copper boilers are more susceptible to limescale when you compare to stainless steel boilers. Therefore, we highly recommend using a water softener.
  • Pull a shot & steam milk at the same time – Steam is always readily available. Hence, there is no wait time going from coffee to steam mode.
Vibratory pump:
  • Efficient – 41 watts, rated up to 15 bar with air valve bypass. You only need 9 bar to extract perfect espresso, and wattage has no correlation to longevity.
  • Cost effective – Pumps will degrade in performance over time. Replacing a vibration pump will cost less than a rotary vane pump.
Tank / reservoir system:
  • Particle filter – Protects the machine from any unseen particles from entering the boiler. You can remove this filter if you are installing an inline water softener.
  • Auto-shut off – Prevents burning out the heating element. The water tank sits on a spring activated plate. Once the water is low, the plate depresses the tank microswitch which turns off the heating element.
Separate wands for steam and hot water:
  • Multi-directional – Allows for more movement and flexibility. Each wand has a rubber grip which protects your fingers.
  • 2-hole steam tip – Allows for a slow gradual build-up of microfoam.
  • Rotational knobs – Allows for easier control of the intensity.
Separate pressure gauges:
  • Brew (pump) pressure gauge – Located on the front lower left. Measures from 0 to 16 bar. Optimal pressure is between 8 and 10. You can find the over pressure valve inside left near the vibration pump.
  • Steam (boiler) pressure gauge – Also located on the front lower left, to the right of the brew gauge. Measures from 0 to 3 bar. Optimal pressure is between 0.8 and 1.1. Regulated by a Mater pressurstat.
Separate indicator lights:
  • Power indicator light – Located on the front lower right. This will indicate when the machine is on.
  • Low water level light – Also located on the front lower right, underneath the power light. Indicates when water level in water tank / reservoir in rear is low.
Body panel:
  • Stainless steel – Polished to a mirror finish.
Accessories included:
  • Portafilters – Single spout portafilter and a dual spout portafilter.
  • Filter baskets
      • 1-cup filter basket with a run channel which holds approximately 8 grams.
      • 2-cup filter basket which holds approximately 14 grams.
      • Blind filter basket which you use for backflushing. 58 mm in diameter.
  • Tamper – A cheap plastic tamper. Manufacturers will normally include a tamper like this to keep the overall selling price of the machine low. We recommend upgrading to a better tamper.
  • Cleaning brush – A simple brush for cleaning the grouphead. Ergonomically designed with an angle for easier usage.
  • Coffee scoop – A simple plastic scoop if you are using preground coffee.
  • Instruction manual – Available in 5 different languages: Italian, English, French, German, & Spanish.

Espresso Machine Warning:

  • ELECTRICAL WARNING: To avoid electrical damage to this espresso machine which is not considered a manufacturer's defect, please acquire and install a single-outlet surge suppressor rated at 1080 joules or higher. the lack of the recommended surge suppressor, the espresso machine can be damaged at the power switch, the electronics, the heating element, the pressurstat or the wiring inside.
  • WATER WARNING: To increase the useful life of and not damage your espresso machine, please use softened water. Softened water is water without calcium and without magnesium, but still has other minerals for espresso extraction. Do not use distilled water, purified water, nor reverse osmosis water as these types of water create oxidation with the metals and cause the same damaging effects as limescale.
  • DESCALING WARNING: We do not recommend descaling unless there is an issue with the espresso machine. The reason is that too much descaling can eat away at the metals and gaskets inside an espresso machine.

      My BZ 16 (purchased from you guys last year) has lately not been recognizing that there is water in the tank, and shuts off repeatedly. I tried changing the water, "Hardening" it, making sure the tank is seated properly, etc. Suggestions?

      This is controlled by the brain unit. When a brain unit fails, the unit does not work at all.

      Clean the metal sensors inside the reservoir as well as outside.

      This issue may also involve the water refill probe inside on top of the boiler.

    2. Contacting you again for the same reason. I purchased a Bezzera BZ 16 PM from you last year and need the following part. Need the oring which is installed above the shower holder. These orings dry out and need to be replaced occasionally. According to your diagram the oring is #9 (55x8.1) code 7496092. Can you tell me if this is the correct code for my BZ 16 PM? Jim P. will know I'm sure. Please let me know the price per ring. I would like six(6) of them. Also, I am looking for similar orings for a much older Bezzera machine that I have, the Bezzera 99S; do you have this part? If not, can you get some for me?

      We ALWAYS recommend reviewing the lastest diagrams as our parts recommendations can get old IF Bezzera makes a change. After, please search the number on our web site for availability and pricing. The part number provided 7496092 fits your machine, but again, future machines from today forward could change.

      Sorry, we do not support the BZ99 as we never sold this model and we do not have diagrams for it. Please contact Bezzera directly.
