I am a new owner of Lelit Elizabeth V3, and so far it has been fantastic.
I haven't tinkered anything with the machine, and the OPV is still on original factory settings.. mine is on 10 bar.

Yesterday I decided to turn off steam boiler as I thought I only wanted to brew coffee. I am aware pre-infusion is done differently with steam boiler off, but I observed different behaviour pressure-wise during brewing. The manometer was still in pre-infusion stage past the 6 secs and stayed there even after the pump turned back on.. then it went to 9 bar on 11-12 seconds mark until the shot is finished.

Out of curiosity I turned steam boiler back on.. and brew another shot.. it was back to normal.. 6 secs on pre-infusion pressure, and go to 10 bar right after the pump turned on.

Is that pressure behaviour normal when the steam boiler is off?

Total power of EU version is 1250W.
Both boilers are heated consecutively, whereby the coffee boiler has priority.
IMHO it is not good idea to use european version in US/Can with transformer...

Hi all
I just bought an Elizabeth a few months ago. Recently I noticed a small pressure variation after a while with the blind filter. I may be a bit dainty but still wanted to share a video with you guys. I wonder whether this slight (0.1 bars) pressure drop / fluctuation is normal... Or should I be concerned :/
