no, Gicars stupid system on a soft touch panel (well any panel really)

  • press the  right hand button and power on = Factory reset
  • press both buttons in and power on = advanced settings

How did no one at Gicar see this as a potential problem, and I've been banging on about it for almost 15 years. Gicar seem to be a law unto themselves though.

How it should work (only here for Gicars benefit):

  • press the  right hand button and power on = advanced settings
  • press both buttons in and power on = Factory reset

I think I had both down and released them before the boot screen switched over so thought it was due to releasing them too soon (could just be making it up too).
 

Thanks for the explanation, your PID instructions are my reference document so that was called up as soon as it said “Factory OK”. It was supposed to be a quick tweak!

PMA all day!

@Zoltan  - did you connect them to the machine's own supply or external?

External. I'm not a great handyman. It's just attached to the machine and to the plug. So individual switchable, useful when dark in the kitchen :)

Think I’m going to have to copy this. Looks great 👍 

I bought this from Amazon, length is perfect for Elizabeth.

Sticked to the bottom of the top area and on the side.

To be honest it's not my idea, I'm a copycat 😁 Saw it before on the forum. I was looking for a light as my kitchen is dark in the morning (my light is ridiculous slow after switching on) and found this as a unique solution :)

Hey guys - been following this great thread since buying a Lelit Elizabeth in September (upgrade from a Sage Oracle). Thanks for all the great advice/tips.

All good with it so far, except...does anyone have an issue with the water tank getting a bit funky?

I have installed the Lelit filter (and changed it within the prescribed time) and also use Brita-filtered water in the tank. But I noticed that the water in the tank had a bit of a musty smell a couple of months ago, so I pulled it out and washed & sterilised it.

But, again this morning, I've noticed the same thing. Again, I've washed it out but this time I pulled the water right through the boiler until it ran clear and tasted OK from the hot water spout.

I'm wondering if by filtering the water before filling the tank I might be pulling out the stuff that keeps the water from getting a bit manky. I never had this issue with the Sage.

Also, I'm only pulling a couple of shots every day so maybe I shouldn't keep the tank topped-up completely?

Any thoughts?

Maybe I should add that I live in South Wales and the tap water is pretty good. The hardness is under 100ppm and, after going through a new Brita filter, it's under 25ppm.

It also tastes quite reasonable - not too chlorinated and no other noticeable taste that I'm aware of.

I've only had my Elizabeth for a couple of months now but I've never had an issue with the water tank.

I do clean it out (rinse with soapy water) every couple of weeks. I also go through a reasonable amount of water so it's never sat for very long in the tank.

I'd recommend stepping up how often you clean it. Leaving it a couple of months, or waiting for a smell to develop, before cleaning is the likely culprit.

@Maximum_RnB  - Had my Elizabeth since July last year. I use exclusively distilled water, remineralised, and never had an issue with the water smelling musty. I go through a tank of water every 6 days or so.

Thanks fellas. 

I'm now well and truly down the rabbit-hole of water filtering/purification and am currently on page 5 of Dave's Osmio Zero review so fully anticipate spending another £400 on my coffee habit next week 🤑

I have done it ten days ago and I'm really happy with Osmio. Cannot drink much coffee at the moment due to health reasons, but the taste is much improved in my morning americano as well as all the tea and water consumed throughout the rest of the day. Great addition to any kitchen (especially with disgusting north London water).

I clean the water tank with Milton every two weeks.

You didn’t buy the bianca so there are some rationalisation £s to spend...

LOL, true. But I did buy a Niche Zero around the same time.

And I have other expensive fads to funds...
