Posted Sun Jan 6, 2013, 7:29am Subject: Wega Machine intermittent electrical problem
I have a Wega machine that powers up every time I turn it on. Recently, it started a new behavior. Sometimes it appears to warm up properly, but when it flip the switch for espresso, there is no response. I suspected the solenoids, so tapped on them a little to try to get a reaction. That didn't work, but what DOES work is tapping on the Auto-fill control unit. It works every time. I'm thinking I should replace the Auto-fill control unit, but I just wanted to make sure that I'm not missing anything critical since I'm a novice here and that is a relatively expensive replacement part. Thanks for any advice
