    ^ agree the only way to be sure whats going on is to fit a pressure gauge - its also possible to fit a temporary one on the steam arm with a rubber hose and a couple of circlips, but you might as well go the whole way and get a proper one as you will keep wondering if the pressure is right even after you have adjusted it.
    Keep calm and grind flat,

    Thanks for the help everyone! Will likely exchange it and get the pressure gauge for the next one

    Would love too but it costs like 1.5x the price.. Was thinking it would be the same with the pressure gauge installed right?

    I suppose. It has a bigger boiler too. But yes, if you are confident in installing the gauge, why not?

    fitting it is quite straight forward, just buy a roll of PTFE to help it seal,

    The thread size changed at some point but I think it's only really a problem when fitting a gauge to the really old ones. So long as you tell them it's for a millenium you shouldn't have a problem.

    Updates: Decided to return the old machine, but the old one got stuck in customs for a really long time.

    Option is to now request for return of the machine, allowing me to get the machine at a discounted price (half price from the actual). Was thinking i could call for the return, then buy a pressure gauge and try to fix it myself. Just wondering if this is a wise idea.

    One question is what could this be if it is not a pressure valve problem that would be solved with turning of the screw?
