Breville 920xl pressure not changing anymore (Slayer'd) ?

On my Slayer mod, today I noticed now the pressure gauge doesn't change whether coffee or blank when adjusting knob, it just goes to 9ish and stays, if I lower to 1st bar for example pressure stays in that range and doesn't drop anymore, or fluctuate period when adjusting knob. Already replaced solenoid, I just don't know what could be...

Rocket Appartamento over pressure/loud squealing?

Has it continued to behave? I have the same screaming pressure relief valve that rears its head every few months. Also, I've been getting inconsistent shot times and noticed my pressure is wandering from 1.0 to 1.3 bar so I suspect my pressurestat is failing.

Breville Dual Boiler (BES 920) spitting too much water from steam wand

Descaling with a cafetto solution helped again for about 24 hours and then problem recurred....... Seems like it is the draining boilers bit that results in a temporary fix, anything else to try?

Looking for repair or restoration source

I have a 1958 Microcimbali which needs some restoration. The person who left it to me was a mentor who meant a Great Deal to me and I hope to get it working again. I know he took very good care of the things he had. As I understand he always drained it after using. And cosmetically it is in...

Keep or sell Rancilio Rocky?

If you don't need to raise some cash (and it wouldn't amount to much anyway), I'd store it away just in case you decide to venture outside the world of espresso. That what I have done with my Rocky. I gave it a good cleaning, boxed it up, and now it waits...I'm thinking cold brew is in my future...especially with...

Need help Olympia Cremina hydraulics redesign

The top could be removed and that T fitting could hold a gauge while the pressure is being set... Then the gauge could be removed and the extension and anti-vac installed in its place, protruding through a hole in the top once the pressure is trusted to be where it should... Just spit-balling the idea.
