I know there are a few discussions related to MaraX pressure already, but I can’t compare what I’m seeing to the other topics, so I’ll try a new one.
Recently, my 1-year old machine has started acting strange. I suspect it’s started after I did my monthly cleaning (drain the boiler a few times, chemical backflush and cleaning of the steam wand).
What’s happening is, during warmup the steam pressure never goes above 1 bar. And then it just sits there. After brewing, it just sits there - no steam boost like it used to do.
If I switch the machine to HX mode, it’ll go to 1.5 bar in the boiler. But I want it in X mode :D
Temp is set to 0 on the rocker switch. On this setting, it’ll usually idle between 0.5 and 1 bar.
The weirdest is that it no longer goes beyond 1 bar during warmup. It used to go well above 2.5 bar when starting from cold.
I’ve tried toggling between modes with the machine on and off, to no avail :(
Any ideas what could have happened? I have never opened anything but the water tank, so it’s a stock machine, pre-“factory-OPV-mod”.
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
