  1. Bought this gauge and it turns out my grouphead pressure is only 5bar. Am I right in thinking this is too low?
  2. Hi - first post, so forgive me. I literally just bought a Delonghi EC933 machine and whist is does a decent job for me I'm plainly getting something wrong. The coffee seems over extracted, bitter and burned ... also (connected in some way, I presume) the pressure during extraction is well below the 'optimal range' on the dial. I've checked myself in the following ways ... grind setting - i started fine at 1 and have worked my way back out to 4 coffee volume in the basket - i was putting too much in, probably - now it sits at the 'optimum' line in the basket tamp - the machine is supposed to control this for me - not much i can change - i do tamp it twice as the person in the shop said i should !! I can't work out why the resulting coffee's should seem over extracted and the pressure so low. I am very confused an feeling like i know less than nothing right now. Any help would be appreciated.
  3. Hi, I have a secondhand Gaggia Classic that I have been brewing with for about 2 months without any problem. One day the pressure fell to only 3 bars, something I fixed by dismantling it and cleaning out the dispersion plate. The pressure is back to normal and I can brew a good cup with a bottomless portafilter. However, when I try using the standard portafilter it seems as if there is not enough pressure. I do not pack the coffee very hard (same pressure as before), but it can still take up to two minutes to get enough water through for an espresso. Any idea what the issue can be? Thanks
  4. Hi, I have taken apart my Gaggia Classic and I see that water is only coming out of one of the holes in the picture below. Is this normal? If not, what is the best way to unblock these? Thanks
  5. Hi guys, wondering if you could help me with a couple of questions I have about the duetto Recently checked one out. Ran the steam for 4 seconds, Boiler pressure dropped from 1.25 to 1 and recovered in about 3 seconds. Pulled about 4oz hot water, boiler pressure dropped to 0.3 PID display went off and the (I assume) low water alarm sounded. Took the lid off and checked the reservoir level which was pretty much full. It didn't recover until the machine was turned off and then back on again. After turning back on, waited for the machine to get back up to speed then did the same procedure. From a 4 sec steam boiler pressure dropped to 0.5 and took about 7 seconds to get back to 1. Once it got back to 1.25, pulling hot water dropped it to 0.7 but it recovered in about 3 seconds. I have a feeling it's clogged with scale (I'm assured it has been descaled, it is being filled from water jug filter) and maybe faulty/sticking vacuum breaker. I'm not sure why the low water alarm sounded with a full res. - boiler failing to fill? Appreciate any thoughts you may have. Regards Mark
