    New Giotto Premium Plus - Creaking Noise. Normal??

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    HI all

    I have a new GPP (less than 1 month old) which makes a creaking noise for about a 1 second just before pouring starts. Is that normal?

    I also have the older Giotto Premium which never does this.

    Basically, after I lift the lever to kick off the brew process, the noise comes from inside the machine (pump?) after about 2 sec, just before the pour starts and last for 1 sec or so. It is fairly loud.

    Just thought I would check before bugging the supplier.

    Cheers.

    Grease the cam
    That will fix it

    This will happen often after a chemical back-flush

    Hi Java,

    This is the "9 bar woofle" and very common. Its a good thing and on many machines is an indication of a correctly adjusted OPV. My old e-61 and my Giotto Pro both do it...

    Worry not...
