Subject: isomac tea problems
 

I was wondering If anyone could help me with my isomac tea. It has been in storage for 3 years (I have had it for about 10 years) and I finally got it in the house.
Here is what's happening..

Turn on the machine and pumps starts and heater lights goes on. Water pumps in from the intake but water seems to come back from the other hose.

Heater works and the pressure builds for a few pressure bars then the heater shuts down.

Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot this would be much appreciated. I live in Hawaii so shipping it for service would be a pain.

Thanks in advance.

Did you clean the machine before you put it in storage. If not, it's very likely that the grouphead is completely blocked. When that happens, water has nowhere to go and it gets diverted back into the water container or into the drain (depending on the machine).
