    EM6910 Clicked off while Brewing

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I was pulling a shot when I heard a click and the brew stopped. All the lights were still on so I hit the brew switch and it started brewing again. Tasted awful of course :o

    Anyone struck this before? I hope its not symptomatic of trouble brewing - pardon the weak pun :D

    AM - any input from your vast experience with the EM6910 would be greatly appreciated.

    From page 22 of the Instruction Book:

    Note: As a safety mechanism the espresso
    machine is programmed to automatically stop
    the water flow after 240mls, therefore you
    will need to press the ‘MANUAL’ button again
    to restart the water flow.


    I reckon the 240ml is actually calculated and the function actually works on a timer.

    My best guess is that the timer chip might be starting to misbehave.

    There is a flow meter and a Timer as the two go hand in hand..

    Also depending on what you were doing, I have seen it where it fails to detect teh Brew switch as the interrupt (still attempts to run a shot) and goes into standby mode ;D ;D

    TG is also correct and volume and time is also monitored for teh Steam. Thus depending on exactly what you were doing and what state teh unit was in; it is possible for users to get it all tricked up :D


    Treat this as a once off; record a technical note and a reminder to be more detailed with the status prior to teh error.

    Thus if it happens again; You will be in a position to do a better investigation, in an attempt to discover teh root cause.

    If it turns out to be YOU; then ya know what your going to have to do :D ;D :o ::)
