  1. I have a Rocket R58 and for the past couple months I have been experiencing the following problem: When turning the machine on after about 15 minutes the steam pressure continues to rise past the 1-1.5bar green zone on the dial to around 2.25bar, this is the point where the OPV releases, the OPV activates and releases the excess pressure, initially this was intermittant but now it occours every time the machine is turned on (I have now turned off the steam/service boiler). The heater doesn't shut off and the water in the boiler is continued to heat, so my initial thoughts were that its a
  2. Hi all. I put up a video here with a problem with my Gaggia Classic a few days ago, and the consensus seemed to be that the solenoid valve had gotten blocked with scale debris. The machine is 2011 but new to me, bought second-hand recently. I have been trying to get myself set up over the last month or so, getting a second-hand Baratza Vario from a forum member, tamper, scales, airtight container etc. Also got a brass shower screen holder and gasket as the originals did not look too good. The issue occurred, I think, after I put the machine on its side, to fit the new parts. (Reall
  3. Hi all, I was hoping I could get a bit of help with something please! I bought a 2011 Gaggia Classic second hand, and it was working fine at the very beginning. I then ordered a new shower screen holder (brass) and gasket as the originals were looking a little tired / corroded. However, now that I’ve replaced them (correctly I think, but you never know) I’m not getting any water flow at all. The answer may be staring me in the face but I’d rather suffer the online embarrassment than more frustration! I’ve added the links to the two parts below, and (I think) a video of the issue. Any
  4. I have before me an oscar that want's to fill up the boiler as soon as i turn it on, but the boiler is already full, which i know because i have the steam outlet open and it lets out the excess water. If i close the steam outlet, eventually the safety valve blows and lets out water. My waterlevel probe is in the right position. It is as if the probe can't sense the water in the boiler and therefore tells the pump to keep filling up the boiler. The waterlevel probe cable is attached properly as well. I don't really know what to do to fix this. Any ideas?
  5. Hi All, Switched on my Dream tonight and found that the temp gauge only went up slightly, I tested the temperature of the water when the "coffee ready" light went out and it was approx 75 C ,and on the steam setting it seemed to make adequate steam, the gauge only moving slightly higher. I wondered if anyone could advise me of what the temperature at the grouphead should be and if it it sounds like a faulty gauge or something more serious. Mike
  6. I have a Sage Barista Express, (Iv'e had multiple,) and after approx 6 months the Brew/Steam/Water selector stops working / jams , and Steam / water will exit the brewed regardless of position. Iv'e had multiple Sage Engineers (Coffee classic ) out, and luckilly lakeland have also been good in exchanging the faulty machines. I clean the machine weekly with cleaning tablets / descaler. Is this an issue that anyone else has experienced ? is it a problem with the design of the valve / switch. ? This is the 5th time now, and I've confidence in the machine. I'm guessing the Du
  7. Hi there, I'd like to say hello to all of you guys, I'm happy to be here. This time I need your help, I bought a used Gaggia Selecta Deluxe (Classic but without 3-way solenoid as far as I know). If was a bargain but the problem is that the wires at the main switch are mixed up. I have no clue how to connect it, have no diagrams to this model, and the problem is that my Gaggia has a different pinouts than Classic, the wires are in different colours and all the connections are slightly different than at the wiring diagram. I don't know what should be the correct order of connecting the p
  8. First post on here so a big hello to everybody! I have recently purchased a Fracino Classic commercial machine (2nd hand) for a cafe my mother in law runs. I rigged it all up over the weekend but I am having a problem , the machine will not produce hot water from the wand. The steam wand , and the group (I believe it is called the group, The coffee "brewer" in the middle) both work fine. If I turn the manual valve for hot water - nothing happens!. The steam gets upto pressure/temprature rather quickly but the hot water side does not move past 3 (The green zone is at 12
  9. Hope someone can give some advice. I've finally managed to get some consistent results from my Gaggia Classic using a Porlex grinder (many thanks to Big Tony). The problem being the settings on the Porlex grinder. Most people seem to get the best results from 3-4 clicks from tightest for espresso, however I've found that the setting works on my grinder at 6 and other people at +10 which should be French Press territory. As a nubbie to world of coffee, I wouldn't really know a decent grind if it hit me. I've taken the below photos of my grind at 6, I'd be grateful if a
  10. I have recently Purchaced this machine and have had no problems. Made a few latte's when I got it, but today I go to it, brew button and ports filter working fine, pouring some nice coffe, but the steamer is not the same. It only pours water through for a few second and then stops completely. It does not build up enough pressure to create steam like it did before... I have tried every combination of buttons, did the water cyle thing, emptied thr machine of water, started fresh a few times but no luck.. If anyone else has experienced problems like this and has found a solution, I would be
  11. Hello there. I have problem and I hope you could help. My Baratza 270w sgueaks after cleaning (like a mouse) . I cleaned the grinder again and did not help. I put in new beans and changed setting. It also did not help. Do you have any ideas what can I do next before I will send to service? Thanks and I look forward to your response.
  12. Hi All, don’t know if anyone else has had this but my portafilter has started to gradually rotate itself, as if to undo it, mid pour. It’s not causing a problem yet but I feel if it does ever come out with, what should be, 9 bar of pressure behind it, it would cause a lot of damage to anything under it and make for a long clean up. Any ideas to what might cause this? the machine isn’t very old after sage replaced it from a separate issue in January. I am fairly certain that they sent a brand new machine out so I would be supported if it is just ‘wear and tear’ that has caused it
  13. Hi there all, Im looking for some advice on roasting at home. Do I need to conform to any law regs to roast in my house ( 1 kg electric coffee roaster)? do I need to have a health inspector visit? I would like to sell my coffee online. Any other advice? Thanks Dominik

  16. I have just rebuild my la pavoni by replacing the seals but when I turn it on with water in I get this loud wirling noise coming from boiler I have a video but dunno how to upload
  17. A few weeks ago I started getting the following problem: Get some new beans in. Find the grind is too fine. Adjust the grind. Get the same result. Keep adjusting the grind to find that there is no change in the output, even after stepping up several times. Remove hopper and grind out remaining beans in the chamber. Put hopper back on and pull a shot to find that it's now way too coarse. This happened about 3 times so decided to remove the top burr and clean out the chamber, only to find that the problem hasn't been fixed. I'm p**sing beans away like crazy and it
  18. I have been using my Rancilio Silvia for the past 5 years or so with little or no problem. Recently it has started to make a lot of noise, which appears to be as result of one of the reservoir water pipes bubbling in the tank immediately after the thermostat switches off. Around the same time It became nearly impossible to pour a shot with a reasonable amount of crema. The shots are OKish flavourwise but a little on the watery side. My first thought was to descale the machine as it had been a while since I had last done it. This made no difference. I then read about similar problems where some
  19. Hey guys, I recently got a Barista Express during the Christmas Period and I've ran into an issue, water doesn't come out of the group head at a normal rate anymore. When I remove the portafilter and run water through it the water barely even grips through. This started happening yesterday. Today I decided to clean everything, I removed the shower screen thingy and cleaned everything with the hopes that this will make a difference, it didn't. Water runs through the hot water spout and steam arm completely normally but not through the group head. I haven't de-scaled and I haven't used one
  20. Hi all My six month old Classic ready light seems to be on the blink (sorry, bad pun). When I switch on, the ready light comes on fairly soon, I run a little hot water to warm my cup, it goes off, then won't come on again to indicate the water (or steam) is at the right temperature. If I flip the switch to run some water, the light will come on, but it rarely stays on for as long as it takes to pull a shot. Has anyone got any tips before I go back to the seller (Argos) to see about getting it sorted under guarantee? Many thanks Brad
  21. I came here to ask if any one knew where I can find an instruction manual for my Gaggia XD?..............but while I am on the forum as this is the first time it has ever missed a beat some help with the fault diagnosis might not go amiss. Machine had been stood a few days while I was away, turned on to warm up and wandered off, on return water pressure dial was way over to max.........turned it off prompt! Had a look for anything realy silly like check inlet isolating valve was not off and left it to cool down. Turned it back on, ran off a few shots worth of water and water pressure se
  22. Received a Gaggia Classic that I won on eBay last saturday... Got the machine yesterday, power it on and there is no flow of water from the group head. Instead it looks like it's going back into the water tank from the back of the machine + it's leaking out the side of the machine to the right of the steam wand. The seller claims it was working fine and there's even a receipt for a new pump fitted at the beginning of this month. A few other niggles such as the power light dimming when the power button is turned on and electrical spark begind the power button when pressed (bit li
  23. Hi guys, I've been rebooting my Rancilio Silvia V1 of late, as it had some problems. Most are resolved but now I've encountered a new one; the espresso is not flowing, only dripping through. It starts with a tiny flow and after 5 seconds in, it stops providing espresso. The situation is as follows: Last few days I've replaced the shower screen, group head gasket and the steam wand gaskets. Moreover, I've backflushed the machine. I then poured some espresso's and the flow was fine. Then, I descaled the machine and since then, I have the problem as described above. However, I do r
  24. Hi all, I’m having problems with my Sage barista touch. I normally grind for ~18 secs and it gives me enough in the portafilter to tamp and pull a nice shot (grind size 8-10). But turned the machine on this morning and 18 secs is only filling the portafilter up to half the amount... did an extensive clean of the grinder this evening, same problem is still happening. Do you know what’s changed? Is it something to do with the grinder cog un-syncing with the actual grinder? Many thanks!
  25. Not been able to for a few weeks, anyone else got this? Any ideas to fix it? Thanks
