  1. the steam was mega powerful. how do i know if the safety valve didnt go? i'm making latte this morning so we will see what happens today... but will call BB later if i still see issues
  2. erm, i dont know. i turn the steam boiler on when im making milk drinks (once a day) and its normally off and just the brew boiler is on. @DavecUK 3 weeks old from bella barista. so yes under warranty. it was WAY over. It was down at the 12 on the brew boiler scale. What safety release? Coffee was made about 45mins ago and the e61 is ridiculously hot now, probably hotter than ive ever felt before.
  3. me again... where should my steam boiler get to pressure wise? temp is set to 125 but sometimes it goes to 1.5bar and not much further other times much much further. today it went as far as i think it could go before getting stopped by the needle on the brew boiler
  4. great, i wasnt going wrong i just was scared i wasnt doing it right. its not been out and cleaned. thanks
  5. oh i know that, but when im just trying to take the shower screen out?
  6. Thanks for the video, its what i've been using. i have loads of tyre levers dotted about (i do have 6 bikes after all...), will get one of those on it! I was getting the gasket coming out a bit instead of the screen cover so i think im leveraging against the wrong bit. didnt notice a ridge so will look for that instead my machine is on if im awake so yeah its always been hot when i've tried.
  7. ive been trying that, will give it another go.
  8. love my machine, currently using the preinfusion mode but getting consistently brilliant (IMO) shots. however, i can't get the shower screen out to give it a good clean. anyone got any advice?

    Black Friday

    anyone seen a deal on the felicita arc?
  10. yeah but then you need to make one for every different shape of drip tray, so smaller market base
  11. anyone want to start a scale business? 😂 13-14cm wide 10.5cm deep 1.5cm tall no fancy bluetooth. just waterproof, usb charging (preferably c), fast response time, and a timer. £40-50 price tag
  12. why does noone (and if they do, who?) make a scale the shape of the felicita arc without the unnecessary smart stuff? long enough to take 2 cups, and narrow enough to fit on a drip tray.
  13. some expensive espresso scales as i cant fit two cups on mine or a nice chemex (If i can convince my gf to drink filter/pourover)
  14. after 2 emails, a moan on twitter and then facebook i finally got a response. they have now decided a supplier let them down and i had the option of a refund or waiting for them to decide when the items would eventually come in. so i took that (also opened a paypal dispute as i dont trust them) and went and bought the items i wanted direct from the suppliers which has cost me more but at least i feel more comfortable now. i believe since i did all of this they have issued my refund so i will be closing the dispute. if they say its in stock, its not, it might be in stock
  15. i've got a 2010 rancilio silvia im about to start listing in places. (facebook, ebay etc) will get it on here later over the weekend possibly
  16. oh i wish you'd posted that before i ordered... i wouldnt have given them the time of day. too late now. i only ordered a couple of loveramic cups and a nice milk pitcher. and i only used them as they had all of everything in stock (from your story i now know why...) which meant free delivery and stuff only coming from one place. Did you get a dispatch notice?
  17. Order placed 3 days ago. No movement. No response to email or twitter comms. Not impressed so far.
  18. so there isnt a huge amount of waste then? i dont have the pissing thing you talk about, just a dump of water at the end of a shot. so im glad im not wasting more water than necessary! Thanks
  19. 2 questions: 1. is it essentially rerouting the water back into the boiler? 2. is there any reason this couldnt be done on a bianca? probably one more for @DavecUK but if so this is huge for all lelit e61 machines. thank you for the guide, i hope i can use it on my bianca as wasting water is irritating!
  20. something like this https://www.amazon.co.uk/Assorted-Heavy-Duty-Felt-Pads/dp/B002JEFHIU/ref=sr_1_5?dchild=1&keywords=felt+pad&qid=1605110331&refinements=p_76%3A419158031&rnid=419157031&rps=1&s=kitchen&sr=1-5
  21. how do i slide it on the counter to refill? its HEAVY...
  22. ive gone one step further... i have a smart kettle... https://www.myappkettle.com/product-page/appkettle i bought a cheap plug last week to measure output, but it wont connect with smartthings so needs to go back. if it doesnt go into smartthings it doesnt stay on my network (kettle withstanding). my latest idea which i stole from somewhere else is to have an energy monitoring plug on our washing machine so when its finished alexa announces that the washing is done.
  23. have no idea. hence the thread ha! i only have giant ones which isnt very practical so i need to buy a smaller one anyway so thought id ask the question before i buy one based on how nice i think it looks
