Very good guest ... service shop replaced the white cup underneath the water reservoir.JRising wrote:I begin this with the assumption that you're running on reservoir water. The gauge shows zero at rest so I am making this assumption. If you're running it on plumbed-in water please correct me.
It sounds and behaves like it is starved for water... Look in the little white cup under your reservoir. Is there anything in it that could be blocking the water from flowing out the lowest hole on the side? Follow the flexible silicone line from white cup under your reservoir around the back of the machine. You'll see a clear plastic inline filter. Does the filter look clogged with coffee grounds or anything?
Beyond this point, the next obstruction is the solenoid valve that separates your reservoir feed from your plumb-in feed. If you feel like connecting your braided hose to the inlet at the bottom-back of the machine, dropping the free end of the braided hose into your reservoir, connecting your programming dongle to the machine and switching it over to plumb-in supply just to see if that makes a difference, you can confirm that the issue is at or before your Reservoir-Solenoid-Valve.
And today when I pull a shop, machine behavior it never been better. I assume that I had those problems with that cup for very long time.
The thing that hit me is that gauge does show zero, but below 5 bars. This is first time is shows other than zero when rest.
