I was wondering, how many bars should a Giotto show at the manometer for boiler pressure at the front of the machine after it has been turned on for 30min.

I'm not sure mine is showing (or giving) the right pressure.

The factory setting for boiler pressure is usually 1.1 to 1.3 bar, I believe.

Think of the static boiler pressure gauge as a temp gauge because that is what it is..

Rounded bar to deg F is

BAR          TEMP F
1                212
1.1             216
1.2             220
1.3             224
1.4             229


BAR          TEMP C

0.8            93.51
0.9            96.71
1               99.63
1.1          102.32
1.2          104.81
1.3          107.13
1.4          109.32
1.5          111.37
1.6          113.32

So how warm do you want your boiler to be?

As above, most machines are between .9 to 1.4 bar.
