Nuova Simonelli Oscar II - Does your boiler light come on when making a coffee?
Hey guys. New owner of a Nuova Simonelli Oscar II here. I've got a question about the heating/boiler light.
I use the Oscar twice a day to make two lattes. The boiler light always comes on either when the shots are being poured or when I use the steam wand.
Is it normal for the boiler light to come on like this?
The machine has always been on for at least 30 minutes before I use it. And I always flush water through the group head for 5-10 seconds before inserting the portafilter.
I think this answers my own question (yes, it's normal for the heat lamp to come on when brewing and steaming):
