Weber EG-1 Version 3

That's just completely wrong. What you're shouting here is that a race car is always better then a offroad vehicle. I'd like to see a race car do a offroad track and even finish.

Fresh Roast SR800 - Thermocouple to iPhone?

When I started with a popper back in the 80's, I had a popcorn pumper with a toggle switch on the heater and a dial thermometer inserted through a hole drilled in the top and a spacer to set the depth. At the time, I was extremely happy with just that and a stopwatch to keep track of the time

La Scala Eroica when turned on, lots of clicking, heats, but no pump.

First noticed this several weeks ago when I turned two position switch to second position at start up in the morning, the tank heats and I can hear the pressure switch click on and off but when I lift a lever, no pump action at all.

Nuova Simonelli Oscar needs water

Definitely your HX Hydraulic Pathway looks great . . . and the electrical components seem to be operating well. Are you still getting the problem filling the Boiler where the machine shuts the pump down at about 90 seconds (the safety feature?) Nuova Simonelli Machines are incredible.

Reconnect the pipe from the three way valve, now directly to the spout, then reroute the flexible hose coming from the OPV into the top
