DavecUK How do you disconnect the three wires from the solenoid, they’re partially in that cutout on the body of the machine itself - do you use long nose pliers, I can’t get my fingers in? Would that trip even though the solenoid doesn’t activate until you switch off?
The pump doesn’t seem to have time to turn on, literally, I turn the electric on and the fuse blows, there’s no delay at all.
I take your point about turning on the boilers, I did turning on only the brew boiler just in case.
LMSC I haven’t checked the fuse in the plug since if that’s gone the main electric fuse wouldn’t blow when I turn the Minima on, since effectively the plug wouldn’t be working.
