    What could be wrong with a working HX machine?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I am looking at a Brugnetti Simona Top ("Brugnetti Simona") of one of my friends, who said it wasnt working. It seems to be working fine except that the machine will produce a low pitched beep while it is pumping during a shot. Its not the low water level warning for the reservoir as that works just fine and produces a higher pitched beep (and stops the pump). Temps and pressure are fine.

    It is the automatic (volumetric) version.

    Can anyone advise me as to what the low pitched warning beep might be trying to indicate?

    Could just be that the machine is discerning and doesnt like the user *:P

    Seriously though, perhaps low flow might set this off - descale?

    Because I like cheap machines?

    Flow rate with no PF is fine - Ive tried descaling with citric acid (got the nice green water coming through) but still it beeps.
