Did you have flow through the basket and if so, what rate?

So I tried with the epoxy putty in the single basket. I start the machine and the temperature doesn't go up and I know this is wrong. It just hovers around room temperature. safe to assume the k couple is busted?

Room temperature?  Was the basket/thermofilter locked in the machine?  It should read close to PF temperature.

Run the basket and thermofilter under hot or cold water and see if it reads. Did it ever work, did you check the thermocouple, hook up and reader by using it before making the thermofilter?

Epoxy?  Does the epoxy have metal like JB Weld, might it mess with the thermocouple?  Electro-conductive or neutral?

Hey BrianL,

Tried to figure out how not to post this bc it doesn't relate to this thread but couldn't find out how to message you.  I saw on one of your older posts that you have the G_59B bottomless from Espressoparts.  Would you be able to comment on its functionality on your GC in the thread I started under Espresso Machines forum?  Thanks a lot.
