I've been sitting for a while with my Elektra Semi Auto on the fritz convinced that the pressurestat I'd not too long ago had replaced was the culprit. I'm not handy at all with electrical...anything, but the thought of the cost and hassle of another trip to the repair shop got me moving. Thanks so much to previous posts by jim_schulman and stefano65 for providing the information needed to open up my machine, find the blocked pressurestat and clogged pipe. I'm now a convert to bottled water for this machine. Thanks for your help!

Topanga Canyon! wow... Was nearly killed there riding our tandem. We were doing about 30mph around a left-hand blind bend, headed towards the beach on teh Valley somewhere around old Topanga, and some clown in a cage coming the other way crossed the double yellow to pass a pickup with a camper. Gotta love adrenalin!
