S1VII Preinfusion Not Working

Post by Wh0sThere »

Hi All - I am a new owner of a S1 Vivaldi II manufactured in 2011. The machine is in good condition and everything is working fine except for preinfusion so I'm trying to understand if I am doing something wrong.

Currently there is no preinfusion when pulling a shot. I cannot enter the preinfusion menu. When I press the boiler button in the configuration mode, nothing happens. I know the button works because it works during normal operation. It's like the machine doesn't recognize the option for preinfusion.

I believe it is running the correct firmware - I see the 3 yellow leds on power up and I can switch it between V1 and V2 modes. I can also adjust offset temperature. I have not tried the extended offset temperature yet.

Has anyone come across this or does my device needs upgraded firmware for preinfusion? I read this is only the case before 2008, but maybe not in all cases? I also read that if it enters V2 mode on power up then it should have updated firmware.

Thanks in advance!

You should contact Chris Coffee Service to see what they will charge you to update the firmware.
