IridiumBlackberry I’d like to thank ACS(Paolo) for his quick response early in the morning. He greatly helped with the debugging process.
I’d also like to mention that the pressure knobs on the top of the boilers can be Black!
The limit stats can be white with a black, red or grey red button, black with a white button, black with a red, white or grey button, or grey with a red or white button. I’ve seen all combinations in my time.
Glad it’s sorted, I only just settled down with my first coffee to try and help with the fault-finding….but I see you have already fixed it. This post really highlights 2 very important issues.
If the machine is recent (this goes for any coffee machine), transportation can result in problems during the first month or so…loose wires, arcing connectors (loose but didn’t quite drop off) etc.. Always during the very early days, assume something simple has come loose in transit. In the case of a leak, something wasn’t fully tightened. This sort of problem can be fixed in minutes. Things like pump, boiler or main board failure are much less likely to be the problem…Occams razor. I always try and comission a machine for the first time with the case off, or the top off, so I can observe it come to life.
It’s super important to always contact ACS first for support…when posting always state you have contacted ACS for advice, but would appreciate any insights others may have. If this isn’t done and your problem is solved on the forum, as you did exactly what I would have advised (and explained limit stats are not always the same colour), ACS don’t get a clear picture of user faults and issues, both long term and short term after delivery.
I’m very keen for ACS to fully appreciate and understand every and any issue with the Vesuvius Evo Leva as part of continuous product improvement (build) and either a better manual or FAQ for “faults”/issues on their website. To not have a reliance on other users being able to help people with “technical faults”, improve their product and ensures it remains a great product, whilst still being extreme value for money. Hence, I’m very glad you informed ACS, as your first move.
P.S. The Vesuvius Evo Leva although complicated in what it does, is simple in terms of fault-finding and fixing. It’s largely modular and compartmentalised, so access to the various modules is easy, as are most repairs.
