Do you get the Low Group Pressure warning message when this happens? How low does the group pressure go when it happens?
Yes, and it drops down to around 3.3'ish bars.

Re: Pump priority

It only happens occasionally, and I only experienced this 2 or 3 times in real shot pulling situations, where I did not draw water or steam at the same time. However, it is pretty easy to reproduce by drawing a little water while running a "shot" with a blind filter. Thinking a little more about thi...

Pump priority

Hi I have noticed that filling the steam boiler have a higher priority than pulling a shot, which surprises me a bit :roll: It is pretty annoying to see the brew pressure drop for a period of time during a shot, when the machine desides to top off the steamboiler. On my old VII, brewing always had t...

Can you not just unthread that conical piece back to hold against the adjustment nut ?
Btw, my dream does not look like that. It's got a conventional adjustment lock nut.

Nope, this one has to be tightened. Otherwise there will water all over the place.

Re: Going from Vivaldi II to Dream

Thanks for your input Chas. I have attached a picture of the pressure screw. As you can see it is definitely different compared to the VII. Anybody else having the same issue, that the preasure drops over time, and the screw has to be tightened on a regular basis?

Going from Vivaldi II to Dream

Hi, I recently replaced my 9-year-old Vivaldi II with a brand new Dream, and after a few weeks of use wanted to share my experience and raise a few questions. I like the Dream and the coffee quality is at the same level as before, but in some areas I find the Vivaldi II better. So in my opinion thes...

Me too... Even though this thread contains lots of great information and different solutions, It would be nice with a step by step guide showing bgour's ESP8266 solution. @bgour, something you would consider?

Re: Annoying vibrations

Thanks for the great pictures John. I will definitely get some foam tape for my machine asap. I am pretty sure that will solve my issue :smile:
Anybody else out there without foam tape, or am I the only one?

Re: Annoying vibrations

Sounds more like a GS3 then an S1V2. I've never had that problem with my machine & I don't even use the securing screw. Have you removed the warming tray cover to check for misalignment? There should be a foam tape that it sits on at each side. Possibly your motor mounts are loose?? How about the d...

Re: Basket Improvements

I don't think your basket will work with a naked PF. Mine comes very close to the cutout edge and I expect yours will have the outer streams actually falling on the edge, which will result in a HUGE mess. Luckily, your new naked PF comes with a double basket, so that should fix things (assuming tha...

Warming flush procedure

Hi, Before I got my S1 I thought that warming flushes on dual boiler machines was done just before brewing. At least that's what I have seen in some youtube videos. If I flush 2oz of water ,the machine needs about 30 seconds or so, before the water temperature is back to brew temp. How are your proc...
