Hi, just thought I’d share my little break in morning routine in case someone gets a laugh out of it….
Started morning coffee routine as normal, nice long preheat for machine.
Made two drinks which were both uncharacteristically sour, so set about making replacements and….nothing.
Machine lights out and the power outlet RCD on mains board tripping every time I attempted to power up the Mara.
Covers off, multimeter out, checked everything, tested element resistance….and… nothing. Find bandaids - you know, there are quite a few sharp edges on the Mara, and I found a couple - no coffee before I started, big mistake lol!!!
Gave it a bit of a brush and wipe to remove a little dust, verified it came new with OPV return to reservoir while I was in there. Hit it with gentle heat on the heat gun for about 5 minutes just in case.
OK, tried plugging in….all go..….deep breath, mostly relief…..my morning shot to pieces…
My theory is it was taking the piss until I started doing our cappas on the Elektra, lol (you are replaceable, btw…)
Gawd, don’t you love smart devices!
