Bezzera Strega help - OPV constantly draining?
I just got back off holiday of two weeks (of good times and terrible coffee.) Fired up the Strega and well, things are bad. When I pull a shot, water constantly and steadily drains from the OPV right into the drip pan. I don't get the typical pump sounds. I do get perfect steam pressure.
Help? It's a new machine as of December 2016, so I am absolutely calling to get warranty help, but I'm completely mystified as to what is going on. Anyone have an idea?
Thanks in advance; I have to say I'm a tad depressed to come back to gloomy rainy Melbourne weather and a broken (?) Strega.
Possibly just a shot (or sticking) valve. Did you buy the machine locally? Ring your supplier first thing tomorrow.
Thanks! I'll definitely do that. I guess something just worked loose? I'm genuinely surprised to have an issue; I hope this isn't indicative of future issues.
