  1. Rancilio Forum
    Hi. My Rancilio Silvia still makes great coffee but for some reason there has been a big loss in pressure from the steam wand. I've tried taking bits apart, cleaning with pipe cleaners etc but no joy. Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

    My Mara PL62 started sending a lot of water back to the tank, the tank got very hot, and thus the pump started often as well. I thought this had to be the 2way solenoid valve and replaced this now. There is still some smaller amount of water leaking to the tank when not operational, but less...

    Hi Guys, I'm in need of some advice on what direction in repairs I should take, I got this sage coffee machine that doesn't have any pressure through both single and double shots, well the single shot seems to move the needle but nowhere above the pre-infusion lines, water does come out but...
  4. ECM / Profitec Forum
    Hi all, I have an ECM Technika III espresso machine that I 'service' myself. This means that I disassemble the E61 group, clean everything and put it back together. After that I usually descale using cleaning vinegar. After the last time I did this, I cannot get a decent pressure anymore. Using...

    View Advert Vesuvius V10 Pressure Profile For a limited time we are going to offer a Vesuvius at bargain price. Due of Covid worst time ever we are thinking to sell some unit at lowest price in order to play with an unique machine at the same price as a simple dual boiler. The machines...

    Hi all! I mounted my pressure gauge to my portafilter to my Gaggia Classic 2002 today because I wanted to adjust the opv valve. I have tried as best as I can to turn the screw of the head of the opv valve, but I found out it to be stuck. No matter the force applied I could not get it to...

    This will allow you to accurately adjust the OPV pressure on your Gaggia Classic is similar. Remove the spout on your PF and this attaches in its place. Fit the PF, but brew switch, and read the pressure output. I used regularly on my Gaggia to adjust pressure up and down for different...

  9. Sage Forum
    Hello everyone, I recently bought a Sage Barista Express and the gauge goes a bit crazy when I do single shots, I'd like to understand if this is an issue on my end or if I should send it in service. I will attach a video. I understand that the gauge can go too low or too high due to various...

    I'm not clear why Sage designed these machines to run at a higher pressure than most - it must have been a deliberate thing but I'm not sure what the benefit was supposed to be. Anyway, a few days ago the tank on my BE happened to run dry in the middle of a shot and I lost pressure. I had some...

    Today, I measured the brew water temperature and spring pressure of my lever machine with homemade devices I put together. But now, I want to check that I have the right readings. It occurs to me that if I could repeat the measurements with a Space 2 Thermofilter, I could work out if I need to...

    Hello I am seeing that I can extract coffes with 5bar, or ranging slowly (ramp) from 2 to 8 bar, and in both case the coffee are good. I wonder, (sorry for the stupid question) why 9 bar 23 28 sec, is considered a standard. If a coffe is done with 4 bar on a Rossi group (may be that makes...

    Was interested to hear the Conti 60th at the Rave event was using 8 Bar springs (others spring are available, but sadly didn't bring them) and 8 Bars made for a nice, smooth espresso. Just had a play with my pump and lowered it slightly (was set to settle on 9 Bar, or just above). I'm now...

    I've had an R58 for a couple of months and have to admit I've not been blown away by it so far. The espresso quality is excellent, but the steam quality has been quite disappointing. So, to give the steam a bit of a boost I increased the temp with the PID by 1 degree which has helped a little...
  15. Rocket Forum
    Hi, just posted another thread in this subform about my doubts of the machine I was sold at an official Rocket dealer (it was brought to my country by a friend that traveled to Europe) There is a constant hissing sound that comes from the pressure relief valve and does so along with steam and...

    Hey guys, I need a bit of help as I'm reading and reading the forum but am feeling overwhelmed. I've using the following and all my shots are on the higher end of the pressure gauge and not pouring "right". - Single basket (stock) - 10g - 4 on the grinder - Rave Signature Blend roasted on...

    Hi At the weekend I descaled my Gaggia Classic as it was coming up for 3 months since last time. I've had the machine from new for about four years and regularly descale. However, after this last time I am now no longer getting anywhere near the pressure I need for it to push a cup of coffee...
  18. Gaggia Forum
    I just got a second Baby, 2002, to go with my first one which is 2005. So nice big solenoid but not the OPV in the Classic. The 2005 is 11 bar and the 2002 is 13 bar. I was originally considering modding them to 9 bar, but frankly I can't tell any difference in either the extraction or the taste...
