BES900 longevity

15 May

I’ve had the BES900 for three and a half years now and I’m starting to get questions about whether it still works, and whether it still produces shots like it used to.

I thought I would take a quick video of a three year old Peru I roasted about three weeks ago.

I think it still has the goods for an ‘appliance’ coffee machine.

    My 1 yr old 920 is acting up. If I start a shot with the rubber stopper in the basket and hit the manual button the pressure will climb up to 10 bars and within less than 10 seconds will relax back to 8 bars. During the time the pressure is 8 bars there is no noise from the pump. Sometimes the full pressure will return. Sounds like a voltage problem rather than a OPV problem. Sometimes during a shot the pressure will fall but pick back up. I use a naked portafilter and do not see any spurts. Any ideas?
