    6910 spontaneous pump startup

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi folks, got a weird one..
    My 6910 has begun a habit of starting the pump up in the middle of the night.. Two nights running 2am and 3am indeed... Pump only runs for 1 second two or three times 30 seconds apart but enough to wake you up. :(
    Funny thing is its turned off, and is stone cold. Simple solution is to turn off at the wall every night, which is a pain.. It stays on at the wall all day without same issue.. Odd.. Possessed maybe???

    Would be interested if anyone else has had same..

    Perhaps this is my excuse to upgrade to a bes900 anyhow..

    Cheers
    Neil

    Hi...had a similar problem when I turned my machine off at the wall for maintenance. When I turned it back on the pump started and would not stop and the machine was not on....only the wall switch. After pumping out around half a tank of water I turned it off, unplugged it and left it unplugged for a few minutes. Never had the problem since. May be turn it off at the switch and switch back on again....possibly does a reset

    I once had some weird pump coming on when the machine was off instances that ended up being due to a few drops of water that seeped in through the top keypad. This can happen if youre not careful when wiping it down etc. Just a thought.
