Re: Beaten up S1 - version?

Thanks again Chas. So I found one issue, there was a bent pin between the control pad connection and controller board. I fixed it put the board back in but it no joy. Frustrated I played around with the power supply to the control board whilst pressing the on button and lo and behold it reset and th...

Re: Beaten up S1 - version?

Well some progress. I now have the two red lights (20 & 21) on solid, with green flashing on light. So group temperature probe issue. - I swapped the probes around but no change - Both temperature probes have very high resistance, I only see it at 2M Ω: 0.275 for one and 0.295 for the other (at abou...

Re: Beaten up S1 - version?

Thanks Chas. The green light is flashing birghtly, and my multimeter shows 230V when I checked.

I guess I will go thru the electrics again make sure there is nothing obviously wrong.

Re: Beaten up S1 - version?

Thanks Chas, indeed they were brittle, apologies for the late response. So I've completely disassembled my S1, cleaned an inordinate amount of scale from the boiler and the pipework, changed gaskets, added a new safety valve, PTFE'd all the connections, drilled out the whole on the motor housing, ha...

Re: Beaten up S1 - version?

Initial testing was pretty positive. - Auto-fill works, quite noisy but pulls water & appears to stop correctly. - Group boiler heats up, lights indicating temps - Steam boiler also heats up - Water and steam work - Buttons work - Water out of group (volume seems large) No dripping, other than the d...

Re: Beaten up S1 - version?

The beast just arrived. So it is a plumbed double boiler version: IMG_4099.JPG From 2003, model S1. Just that: IMG_4096.JPG Exterior is beat up; both side panels broken, cup holder screen has been bent. Even the plug is destroyed beyond repair - whole thing looks like it's been run over. Interior is...

Beaten up S1 - version?

Great forum all, spent most of last night reading - whoever said sleeping like a baby never had kids. Just bought a beaten up S1 in the UK for 128 USD, needs a lot of work, not to mention PFs and likely much much more. I'm hoping pump & motor are functioning, hell I hope it has functioning boilers, ...
