Smart outlet used for espresso machine melted

I've been using a CE smart outlet for my espresso machine for about 6 months now. It's been fine, but yesterday I found the machine off in the morning. I didn't think much of it, so just turned the outlet back on and used it normally. This morning, same thing, except the lights on the outlet were all off. Checked the breaker and it was on. The outlet turned on again after a while so I used the mac...

New pressurestat, no steam on Nuova Simonelli Oscar 1

Seems I have not pulled #S133 off the unit, as per schematic above. With S133 on, I would not be able to see through, correct? When I push in a paper clip, it stops as shown. That must be the nut inside. So maybe I am off on the wrong chase. {image}

Post a pic of your home espresso setup...

Very close to what I will have in about 3 or 5 months-- the MC2 and the Decent DE1XL. Until then I strive to continue the insanity. Being a 'child of the 60's' I have had a lot of practice. :shock:

Baratza Sette Single Dose Hopper?

Hey all, Does anyone know if it is possible to order a custom single dose hopper for the Sette 270? I don't want to mess around creating something myself. I'd love to order something online and call it a day. I am going to lose counter space with my new espresso machine so I need to be able to get it under the cabinetry on my counter. Plus I single dose anyway so it makes sense for me. Thanks!

Profitec/ECM Direct Water Connect Fittings

For those in North America wishing to direct connect their Pro 700 or similar machines to their domestic cold water supply. The Pro 700 (and other ECM/Profitec machines I assume) come with a SS braided hose to go from the machines outlet(which is a straight thread) to a strange conical fitting. The conical fitting is a 3/8" female BSPP threads, but the conical male end inside does not match t...

Leaky steam wand (Rancilio Silvia)

You could try to rebuild the steam wand. But I get about 10 times the amount of drip that you get from mine, always have, and it doesn't seem to affect anything. I just keep a little mason jar under it to catch the drips. Dan

See the little gizmo with the red plastic edge? That's apparently stuck inside.

La Marzocco Linea Mini - New features

I am still not sure how solid the information is, but if it is then I find the optics of a price increase at a time like this repugnant. I know it's an emotional reaction but this hobby is all about emotions.
