So this hiss/drip/hiss started some time ago and I just used the stethoscope-method to find where it comes from.
It comes from this, that I think is the pressurestat.
On top of it is a tube.
This tube goes into a chute down to the driptray. The chute is hot from the boiler. It almost constantly comes water from this tube and it drips down the warm(hot) chute and the hiss comes from the impact of the water on the chute.
If I squeeze the tube the sound is gone, if I release - it comes back.
I didnt have this before. Basically I want to know:
x Is there any danger (with the explosion in the cafe fresh in my mind and having now 2 kids in the house)
x Is it normal?
x If not, what can I do? Clean....replace?
x Should I continue to use the machine? Or let it be.
I also have a youtube film of it, but it came out pretty bad since there is some background noise which makes it sound as there is a noise (the room) even when I squeeze the tube but its really silent irl.
Ignore the children in the background
