Hi all

To set the scene I am a home enthusiast with scope for user error! I recently bought (this week) the aforementioned machine, But I wanted to check whether my Simonelli is working OK. When I extract a coffee it makes a high pitched sound rather than a low grumble which I would expect. I am wondering whether it's OPV related (never had one installed before). I am wondering whether it's the coffee itself maybe being too fine and the machine struggling to push the water through? If I remove the coffee basket and just run water through, it starts with that pitch got a second then is what I would expect is a normal sound.

This is probably a very confusing post!

 

Thanks

@philipduarte I have same machine with OPV fitted and it doesn't make the screeching noise, unfortunately I can't offer any suggestion on what the cause is. Was the machine bought new this week? If so ask the seller to sort it unless they can offer an easy solution that enables you sort it at home.

Hi, yes, it was bought this week (actually last sunday and it arrived Tuesday). I got it from Bella barista and left a message but no one got back to me - will call them next week. A bit annoying if it is a fault - pain to repack and post (though they would collect it)
