    Just to update the outcome on this.

    Bella Barista sent the replacement cable. So, turn the machine off, plug cable/PID in, switch the machine back on, make some changes and YES!, it works perfectly now!

    It was the cable, thanks @DavecUK for your input.

    Glad to have helped, the way the cable is wired/constructed means it's not as robust as one would like....unavoidable because of that large serial connector.

    Yes, I can see how it may easily get pulled out by the cable and not by gripping the plug itself by some less careful owners.

    Hi. This is my first post. I recently upgraded to a 2016 R58 from a Gaggia Classic with PID and other usual mods, and I'm loving it. However I have also noticed that there are times when the pump on the R58 does not engage, and I just get a dribble from the group. I find that turning the machine off and on again solves the problem. I usually turn the service boiler off during the week and have it on on the weekends, and have made a few tweaks to the temperatures while I get the hang of the machine. So I am wondering whether, despite what Rocket are saying, there is some link between adjusting the PID and operation of the pump (PID has stayed connected throughout). I can't be 100% sure that the problem happens only after PID adjustments, but I will keep an eye on it.
