]]]]]]For sale is my Quick Mill Vetrano.  This is a plumb-in model with rotary pumps. Retails for $1,900 at Chris' Coffee - https://www.chriscoffee.com/Quickmill_Vetrano_p/n995.htm

About 1.5 years old.  Includes 3 portafilters - one single spout with back flush disk, double spout with double basket and naked / bottomless Rancilio (beautiful) with triple shot basket.  Also comes with a bunch of steam tips, but the one currently mounted is amazing!  I will include all required plumbing and softener cartridge / plumbable filter.

As you can see from the pics below, the Vetrano is super clean.  Always took immaculate care of it.  Descaled it about 4-5 weeks ago and the water came out clean because I ran it with 3 filters + softener.  And I monitored the scale periodically with PH strips.

All items go for about $2,200 list. Price is $1,300 local pick up.  Please feel free to email with any questions.

Mario, a serious bump for honesty! I've read and posted on that thread. Perhaps you could post a link, as there is (IMO) NOTHING on that thread that detracts from the value of your machine.
Most issues like yours can be ameliorated by the user. I say MOST, so as not to be legally at risk here!
The gist of it is that it could be a malfunctioning pstat, or just simply set too high.
Either way, unless there is another issue, it's a relatively easy fix. I replaced the pstat on my QN Anita in about 15 minutes, including removing the case.

That said, prospective purchases should ask a few questions if necessary.

A shame you're selling her.

Sounds solid to me, dialing in the cooling flushes is half the fun of a hx! And FYI, I was able to have my Vetrano professionally packaged and shipped cross country for less than $75. (But unfortunately, they didn't pad the bottom of the boxes well enough)

Actually, I figure out what the issue was -  I had one of those $9 Walmart electric timers plugged into the machine.  This was the only variable I did not consider.  By removing it, everything seems to be working fine!  Pulled some great shots this morning.

Mario, how tall is it? Can it be shortened by doing something with its tall feet?

Thanks for your inquiry.  All the specs can be found on the link above.  There are removable feet, which will reduce about 2", but I'm not sure if is advisable.

Specs show 16.25" which is pretty much the limit of my kitchen cabinets. That's why I'm interested in whether this height is with feet and whether feet are two-piece affair as they sometimes are on pro-sumer machines - that way about 1" can be shaved off by removing bottom halves of the feet.

Just measured.  You can trim 1 and 5/8" inches by removing both feet, or save about 3/8" by removing the top one.

Just to say, the Vetrano fits under standard cabinet hieght without modification.

If you've got lower than standard cabinets though, no bother, Ill put my foot back in my mouth and carry on :-)
