    ECM Giotto Premium cutting out problem

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi CS,

    Over the last few days, my ECM has been playing up.
    I have been able to make 1 shot (or 2) but as I'm ready and pull up on the lever for the next one, nothing happens, no pump, no nothing, then it looses pressure.
    Turning the machine off and letting it sit, maybe adding a cup of water, then restarting,I can hear the pump kick in and water now comes out through the brew head.
    Any suggestions on what I may be doing wrong would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks in advance.

    Either a faulty low water level shutoff or a worn out main power relay I would think.

    If it's an older model (half moon gauge), an internal upgrade to a Proelind control box is common practice and improves reliability.

    Having it looked over by an experienced technician would be ideal.

    Thanks for the info, I guess bottom line is I need it looked at by a professional.

    I thought the half guage was the newer model? I suppose it doesn't matter what model it is, needs a tech to check it out.
    Thanks

    Where's the best place in Melbourne to get it looked at?
