    G'day Jack

    No, not normal. Try letting a little water out of the hot water knob as it could be an airlock hammering. Other than that - a bit of audio would help a lot!

    That's pretty normal. The noise is one of the biggest drawbacks to the 6910.
    Once extraction is underway it should be significantly quieter.
    Does it make decent coffee?

    As a point of interest, this is what it sounds like with the noise suppressor from an EM7000 and nylon tube fitted.
