  1. Odd that they had to send it back to Rocket to get it fixed. Kinked water lines are very common and a very easy fix, but I guess that's what happens when buying from retailers who don't have in house tech support.
  2. Pics of the valve you say is leaking please. Is the machine plumbed in?
  3. Sounds like the pump relay on the board has failed in the on position. If you can solder you could order a new one and fit it, otherwise its new board time.
  4. I'll probably hang onto it for now as no interest. Thanks.
  5. Likely culprit is the flow restrictor at the top of the group. Undo it with a big spanner, remove with a 7mm socket and soak it or use a paperclip etc to clear out the hole.
  6. Looks extremely clean! Get the panels off and ensure there's no pest ingress. Visually inspect all pipework and wiring. Siphon the water from the boiler if it wasn't drained prior, then I'd just fire it up and address anything that might not seem right.
  7. How old is the machine? If more than about a year old it's likely the relay for the heating element has gone. You'll either need a new board or have the relay replaced which is 5 minutes of work with a soldering iron if you know someone with the skills. There's an updated wiring guide for the pressurestat that was released to dealerships so whoever you bought it from should be able to supply this info and extra pieces required as they will definitely have experienced this on machines sold over the last few years.
  8. You'll need a new pad seal, or you could flip your current one round to face the other way.
  9. Any update on your grinder? Are you having to have Eureka fix or replace it, or is the seller going to fix / replace from stock?
  10. Still available 🤠
  11. As above, there's no low water notification on any Rocket machine, only one to tell you that the reservoir is empty.
  12. Contact James at Espresso Fix. www.espressofix.co.uk
  13. Little bump for this again if anyone fancies it!
