Rocket Appartamento boiler pressure at zero , doesn't want to heat up!


Recommended Posts

Hello 

Hoping someone might be able to help.

My machine is turning on  but I've got zero  on the boiler pressure gauge and no hot water or steam coming out of the wands. I've unplugged etc and turned it all back on, but the sound it usually makes at this point with the boiler coming up and a bit of a clanky noise isn't there. When I pull the lever water does come out of the group head though. It's on a wifi timer so this morning it had been on for a good 45mins or so before I checked. Any one have an idea of what it  might be? 

Its coming up to 4 years old and it was bought from Bella Barista. I'll give them a call as well but wondered if anyone as had something  similar?

thanks in advance

Could be a number of things. Given you are not hearing a click (likely the pstat) there is probably a failure there or before it somewhere. 

If you are handy with a multimeter it won’t be too difficult to diagnose. If you do not know where to start I would farm it out to someone like Bella Barista.

Thanks for the reply having done a quick google ,it looks the thing to start with is resetting the high limit switch. I'll try that then look into the pstat replacement.

So resetting the limit  switch didn't work and not getting anything from BB. 

Has anyone ever used these guys: https://espressoclinic.com/

How old is the machine? If more than about a year old it's likely the relay for the heating element has gone. You'll either need a new board or have the relay replaced which is 5 minutes of work with a soldering iron if you know someone with the skills.

There's an updated wiring guide for the pressurestat that was released to dealerships so whoever you bought it from should be able to supply this info and extra pieces required as they will definitely have experienced this on machines sold over the last few years.

It's coming up to 4  years old now. In the end I took it to the espresso clinic place and they've said its the circuit board, apparently quite a common issue with the earlier Rocket Appartamento models. He had another one with the same issue so had already ordered some boards. The delivery is taking slightly longer than expected though so still waiting for it to be fixed.
