I bought a used Simonelli Oscar off of ebay this past April and it was working great. However, the thermostat keeps resetting every time I turn and leave the machine on, the thermostat resets and it cools down. Do I need to replace the thermostat or is it another issue.
Usually 6-8 seconds, but the high limit thermostat resets already even before I pull a shot. From a cold start, the machine would be on for 15 minutes before the high limit resets. The Mater p-stat is around 7-8.
There are a couple of ways. Easiest and cheapest is one that attaches to the steam wand. Basically it's a pressure gauge with a short length of hose and a couple of hose clamps. I think Orphan Espresso sells one, as do a couple of other of the regular sources.
