HI All,
I descaled my machine today and all went well but now my gauge is foggy on the inside of the glass. Likely due to the flooding of the boiler. Will this go away on its own or does it require disassembly and some air drying?

Leave your machine on 24/7 until it goes away. The heat should have the moisture dry out over a relatively short amount of time. If it doesn't, you have a leak somewhere.

You could pull off the cover to inspect for a leak just to be sure. Besides, it's always nice to look under the hood for signs of any leaks every now and then.
