Vibiemme Junior HX with Jaeger pstat.
Big pressure release sound in my kitchen this afternoon, definitely sounded like the pressure release valve, steam coming out all over and steamed up the gauges. No water as far as I can tell. Walked over to the kitchen and see my pressure up over 2 bar and heater light still on. Turned it off, opened the steam wand to bleed the pressure off down below 1. Turned it back on and let it heat up back up; heater did not shut off until past 1.5 bar (but it did turn off) while normally off at 1.3. Let fully cool for the evening. Fired it back up and now it just keeps going, no turning off. Turned the pressurestat adjustment screw all the way up and down and just doesn't seem to click off while on, but I do feel it click when turning clockwise (toward higher pressure I believe), hard to describe.
So is this a failed/failing pressurestat, or a deeper controller problem? Its just 13 months old and used pretty lightly, say 3 days a week on average for a few hours.
I assume these are easy to replace, yes? One fitting and a few electrical connectors? Will call 1st line in the morning and plead mercy for a warranty replacement!
