Isomac Tea - spontaneously pump working at 14 bar
Some time, pump get starting with strange sound and pressure up to 14 bar, before you release group lever.. But in this case this ubnormal situation may be repeat 2-3 time, or stoped immediately - and machine work normal.
It was spontaneously may be 2-3 time in week. It happen after when machine is hot (more when 45 min)...also when it cold.
I am record few video, because catch this situation not easy..
backstage sound is nothing (TV)

Could be due for a service.
book it in for a service - I'd say.
I'd wager to guess that the pump isn't supposed to start until the group handle is turned open ... soooooo... perhaps there is microswitch associated with sensing the position of the group handle which needs to be looked at in the first instance?
It's interesting that the system seems to stay pressurised even when off...
Sounds like the Lever Microswitch that activates the pump is out of adjustment.
If you're not sure what to do, take it to a reputable specialist retailer and ask them to adjust it for you and undertake a full service while they're at it...
Maybe the OPV is sticking intermittently? Do you backflush regularly? Descale occasionally or regular servicing?
OPV may need a dismantle and clean.
First, I am see problem in spontaniosly pump starting.
And only second - high pressure.
But in normal use, pressure always in normal and opv release near 12.5 bar.
What is reason, why in this case pressure too high?
Please refer to Post #4 above...
Dimal, thanks. No any problem with lever switcher. I am prepare 10-20 espresso and no problem in 1-2-3-4-5 days, but time to time machine catch this problem. For example, in idle, after 1-2 hour after power on, this problem come, also 1-2-3 days no problem. You think it is lever microswitch? Ok i am check it.
