Rocket Appartamento boiler shuts off

Hi, thanks for your replies, they made me dig a bit deeper. When the boiler turned off again, I was sure to only "wiggle" near the thermostat. I noticed the leg on the thermostat was a bit "loose". I removed it from the boiler and hooked up my Fluke multimeter to each leg of the thermostat. When I wiggled the

Londinium Compact.

... where you try to get into one pre-order, and if you don't make it in, then you will get a grinder in the next pre-order opportunity? Eventually supply will catch up with demand. In the meantime, and early on, I'd rather see a longtime Londinium owner get one than what typically happens these days - seeing the machine immediately

Cafelat Robot Piston Seal Life

My pressure tube was covered with the metal sleeve so I never actually saw whether there was water or not. I was just going by the fact that when I took it apart the hose was clean. Maybe that's more a reflection on the cleanliness of the water above the screen rather than how far up the tube it went

Update on Fellow Ode with SSP burrs for espresso? Burnt out motors?

Yes it has protection, so that definitely minimise the risk, however I'll still not recommend it and honestly I would not advise anyone going down this route you simply better of with a DF64 that can use exactly the same burrs for just a little more. I understand if you have it and just wait for a specific grinder you

Isomac Tea - low brew pressure [solved]

I'm repairing an Isomac Tea Cool for a friend, about 10-11 years old (the machine that is). It was never cleaned, so everything was clogged of course. The machine is dismanteled, descaled several times, backflushed and manually cleaned. I also dismanteled the E61 grouphead and cleaned every part. New group shower, new gasket, new pressurestat and new manometer for pressure

Rancilio Epoca S1 steam boiler pressure

Thank u , I lowered pressure at 1 bar but I got a 0.3/0.4 deadband. Maybe p-stat needs descaling?

Decent Espresso news

{video}Epic fail! Reinforced wheel bracket can't take the load A few months ago, at our trade show stand at World of Coffee in Milan, Italy, we found that the coffee carts we use weren't able to survive the big bumps we found. While they're fine on smooth, level ground, reality isn't like that. So

Cafelat Robot Piston Seal Life

Just recently pulled my first shots after having been gone all weekend. I'd say the water went about half way up the part of the tube that is visible from the front. That or a little further is what has always been typical for me, although I don't normally pay a lot of attention. I don't have a good explanation

Rancilio Epoca S1 steam boiler pressure

I have the St1 model and right now, as i want to drink acidic medium roasts, i have it at 1.2 bar maximum The deadband is 1.0-1.2 and i make a flush just before the boiled water finishes to exit For dark roast i would do 2-3" longer flush You may have good results with the pressure at 1.0
