That should be normal as the pump is pushing in cold water from the tank.

Hi guys newbie here, also new to installing PID's so i'm hoping for a little heads up. I've been successful in fitting the PID all the way to step 7(steam control) Am i right in thinking that the grey cable i used in step 4 is to be unplugged from the grey cable from brew therm and now plugged into the yellow cable from steam therm, then connect the grey brew therm cable to terminal 7 and thats it !!
many many thanks for any help.
I have also just finished installing meCoffee on my Silvia. I left the grey brew thermostat cable unconnected. Instead, I connected the grey cable from steam thermostat to terminal #7. Having said that, I think it would not make any difference (since they are the same cable).

Just letting everyone know in case anyone is also wondering about the same issue....
I found that the "Boiler %" on the UI is not responding (staying at 0%) when in Steam mode. I initially thought there was something wrong with my installation, so I emailed Jan (@ meCoffee) to ask about it, but then he confirmed that it is in fact caused by a bug in the app (so my installation is actually all good! ).
Btw, I took a lot of photos when I did the install so let me know if anyone is having difficulty with the install. One of my photos might be able to help you...
please share the photos as i would be needing them just tomorrow

It isn't very straight forward to get v4e/v5 Silvia switching remotely due to the negative switching arrangement of the auto shut down device.
I do however have my v4e/5 Silvia switching via a WiFi/timer socket....
If anyone requires more info on this I'm happy to help......
@Aloosh, I thought I'd reply to your PM here in case anyone else is facing the same issue.
Yes, I contacted meCoffee / Jan using the same email address, i.e. email@example.com

I understand from reading other forums that Jan can be somewhat 'selective' in responding to customer queries. Not the best customer service, but have to admit that the price we pay for the kit isn't exactly premium.
If you share your problem here, some savvy fellow CoffeeSnobbers might be able to help...
Sorry I only just saw this. How did you go with the installation? Any particular step you are having difficulty?

You're right about the non-premium price point... I'm up to 6 emails over the past 4 weeks with no reply, as well as trying to make contact via the query form on the website. At this point a reply email telling me to go away would give me greater satisfaction than what I've gotten.
My mecoffee arrived and I have started the setup. I have attached the correct cables but there is no bluetooth. Im running Chrome on a 2016 Macbook Pro. Have loaded the app from the store and the me coffee is not showing up under bluetooth devices.
My unit does not have the connections numbered on the box either which makes it difficult to know which end of the box the black and red cables attach to.
Any advice. Have tried to contact firstname.lastname@example.org but no response so far.
