  1. I haven't given much thought to the shower screen until now. I've read that poor screens can cause water channeling through the puck. Mine is clear and clean, I believe it's a standard E61 stainless steel screen? I noticed water gets out the screen from around the edges and there is no seal of any kind between the screen and the group head. The edges around the filter basket are going to be the easiest route for channeling. My screen is made from stainless in 3 parts and spot welded around the edge. It could never sit perfectly flat and seal agains the group head. I'm wondering if there are alternative E61 screens with a sealing gasket? For now I've been able to run a 2mm silicone bead around the edge of mine to get a good seal with water only coming out across the screen.
  2. Something a little weird happened over the weekend. I pressed both buttons to go into manual mode and the screen went blank! I pressed on the screen with my thumb and it came back on showing manual mode. Also noticed that when changing the timer, it quite often jumps two-tenths of a second at a time rather than one-tenth. Only had the grinder since October. Anyone else had these problems?
  3. Every single time I clean the machine, it turns into a battle of whits to get the shower screen off, usually involving the end of a sharp knife being poked into the screw hole until I can get some leverage. I am just considering the options, before I wreck the screen...... Obviously I want to maintain the seal, so nothing around the outside edge, which only leaves the centre screw hole. The most ideal solution would be for the screw to be captive in the screen, so as it undoes, it takes the screen with it. any other bright ideas?
  4. Here's how to clean & keep clean the screen on the 65e / 75e * usual disclaimer * you do this at your own risk all though it is a very simple task to perform & make sure the grinder is unplugged if you do!!! Firstly gently heat the top decal with a hairdryer to soften the adhesive. Undo the PH1 screw Remove housing & undo the 4 PH1 screws holding the board to the housing Inside screen cover can now be cleaned Screen itself can be now cleaned Reassemble & apply some electrical tape around board edge to housing. Screw housing back to grinder body & re-apply decal Enjoy the 'grind free' display!
  5. What I'm about to say should be obvious to everyone, but although I have owned a Verona for over four years now and used it daily, it has only just occurred to me. I’ve been experiencing quite a lot lately the spent puck sticking to the screen and the basket coming away empty. It varies, with some beans more inclined than others, but my current batch (Columbia La Crystalina from Rave) is particularly bad in this respect. Releasing the portafilter gently and finding it empty, I have carefully hooked it back on again with the best positional accuracy I can manage then partially released and jiggled it around vigorously in the hope that on the next withdrawal, the puck would be in the basket. Invariably there would be coffee grounds spread over the edge of the basket and in the portafilter securing groove of the group head... a bit of a pain to clean... not to mention a very caked up screen. But now, I release the portafilter by twisting the handle a little and then run the pump for one second or less. Result - puck nicely in the basket, clean screen and on emptying the basket the whole puck falls out cleanly with barely a trace left. I can't imagine why I didn't think of this before; it's so simple and obvious. Am I the only one who hasn't twigged until now? By the way, the Verona is superb. I can't think of any machine I would prefer over it. Its only minor failing is that the water tank can run out without warning and the machine stop dead in the middle of a pull. Some kind of low water warning device would make the machine absolutely perfect. Tony.
