    Rocket heating but not enough

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    My Giotto Rocket (not piped in) is not working properly. It pumps water that is only roughly 40C, and the steam pressure gauge goes suddenly up to roughly 1.5. When I open the steam wand water squirts out for a couple of seconds and the pressure drops back to zero.
    Does anyone have an idea of what the source of the problem is?

    Hi Mark,

    It's overfilling (there are a few possible reasons) and you may well have an dud anti-vac as well.

    Service time I reckon.
