How do you determine if you need a new pstat? I have an Oscar and lately it seems like it kicks on a lot more frequently then I think it used it.
I'm not sure if there's anything "actually" wrong...the pour seems to blonde too quickly (I'm using good, fresh beans), so I'm not sure if the temps are off or not. I admittedly haven't used it in a few months so I might just need to get back into the groove of things to get it right again...but the pstat flicking so frequently is a little concerning.
How often does it usually kick on? I have to time it when I get home today, but it seems like I hear it flick every 10 mins or so.

Oscar stays on 24/7. I feel soothed by the rhythm of the boiler relay and the very occasional buzz of the pump topping off the boiler. Assuming you have a Sirai Pstat, it's fully and easily adjustable, but probably doesn't need it. Where do you live? I'm in the Pacific Northwest and I notice that when it gets colder, the boiler kicks on more often to keep the water nice and hot. As Winter sets in, it's only going to get more and more frequent.
