I have to figure out where to get a replacement screen. I'm using the undersized gasket I got from EP, but I only just got the machine hooked up to the Flojet again after a few weeks of tinkering with the Vivaldi. I still need to figure out which fitting to remove on the boiler so I'm not stuck having to replace a compression washer I can't get locally.
I'm fairly certain my machine is a fluke, since Dan's doesn't seem to have the same issue(s).
I'm not trying to be a jerk here, but how do you know that Dan's isn't the "fluke" since it was supplied by a site sponsor for the purpose of a review? I was one click away from ordering this machine several times, but your terrible experience scared me away. This machine seems to be an answer for many people, but it has stumbled badly. The Brewtus was tarnished for a few bad experiences when the majority of owners were very happy. The B2006AL is batting 0%, 0 for 1.
Help us to understand,
