Hi there,

The power switch button stopped working and I did what is explained in this video to repair it:
Basically the mod consists on bypassing the auto-off function, creating a manual on/off switch (like in older models). Everything is fine, shots are good but today I left the machine on for 15 minutes and the group head and the portafilter became very hot, I've never seen them so hot. The shot was very good though, the water didn't seem too hot. Any idea what may be going on? Should I be worried?

Thanks!
Fede
