  • Isomac Tea II Boiler Pressure

    Does anyone have experience or use of this machine....past couple of the days boiler pressure (well guage) seems to max to 6bar when it was 9 depending on the tamp etc. With Blind filter maxes 6 sticks there...either its faulty or the guage is. i did notice the coffee needs a coarser grind lately too - the steamer is fine though... any assistance appreciated.

    6bar sounds wrong... should be around 9bar during extraction and go up to 10 or 11bar with blind filter. Could be your over pressure valve stuck open. Is the element cycling as normal? If not what is it doing.

    Have you tried doing a chemical backflush with caffeto or similar? You should be doing these regularly anyway. Im sure someone with more expertise will chime in..

      Not been long since I have had it so only backflush was with water only - as I said kicks up to 6 bar sticks there...makes all the right noises. I cant really guage whats happening other than the pressure guage on maxing to 6 and coffee getting coarser....am figuring maybe a sticky valve it wasnt a regular thing initially I dont think.

      Ok any boffins on how I do the checks and fixing ? or back to the shop...

        Within warranty - Contact the supplier ASAP..

        Will be picking up the gauge today...

        So could be possible to check it... Pressure could be fine... A bit of coffee crap in the gauge line ?

        OR leave it on a bench at my place onthe 6th with a sign that says " Fix ME "

          take it back where you bought it, I had to have my pressurestat and brew guage replaced under warranty as temps were running very high, it has settled down now and pulling great shots.

              A sponsor ? If so make it known..

              Could be just a sticky gauge.....

              But under warranty... It is not worth playing around..

              Out of warranty... Would have said.. Lets have a go

                If its under warranty, take it back...

                Fiddle with it yourself and your supplier may well void your warranty.

                      Hmm ok that went well - Called Dibella, pointed to external support company who I called and they didnt really support my machine but would call me at some point..hmm.

                      Also given a number of their suppliers to call - called them and they were pretty helpful in things to check which I will do.

                      So not really a great start - was expecting a bit more from Dibella. Well all I can do is wait then for someone to call me. :-/

                        Honestly.. Id keep calling and taking it up the chain till someone does respond to your call and problem. That simply is not acceptable for warranty support.

                        This is the exact reason why more people are buying from specialised machine sellers in SE QLD. :

                        On a side note we will be landing a Isomac Tea II on our bench soon for testing so if you wanted to do a side by side comparrison. Meanwhile get back on that phone and ask to talk to the manager.

                          Thats great thanks for offer much appreciated - see how today goes then. I agree already had thoughts of going direct to specialised place from now on. Visions of sell and forget.....

                          Keep you posted.

                            YES... We see all the training and open days aetc etc for NSW and Vic and while there are a few places in Brisy.. There are limited specialised machine sellers in SE QLD; where support can be got a the drop of a hat.

                            I think I made a post as to an outcome for teh Social snobs brisbane post..

                              Wel I called again midday - and surprise they had no details of my call...EspressoMechanics was the details I was given by Dibella to call.  Which I think is in Sydney...anyway...took my details again...and didnt know how the Dibella warranty repair works so again waiting for return call.  After which I may have to take to a place in Murrarie for upto 2 weeks to look at it.

                              You are kidding me right....Am going back to DiBella.  Called them back ....have to go through espressomechanics, take to murrarie and covered under warranty.  I guess the bit about not knowing the process didnt get over.  Anyway they gonna call themselves...heres hoping for more calls back.

                              upadate
                              Ok thats the process on the call back - take into Murrarie and leave. There you go. Happy Camper not......I need my PNG AA arrrrahhhhh >
