Re: S1 Vivaldi II - no water through grouphead, have tried everything!

SOLVED! Well, it wasn't the solenoid valve. After I put the new one in and it didn't work I retraced my steps... Went back to the flow meter, had water with flojet on and increased with pump activation. I then checked for the same thing at the boiler inlet and was only getting just a little water wi...

Re: S1 Vivaldi II - no water through grouphead, have tried everything!

Thanks all, going to get a new solenoid valve ordered up. If it is in fact the solenoid valve, if I were to remove that whole valve from the side of the grouphead, would water come out under line pressure? This would be the same test or better than removing the boiler inlet tube as I suggested. I di...

Re: S1 Vivaldi II - no water through grouphead, have tried everything!

One other question / thought.

If it is in fact the solenoid valve, if I were to remove that whole valve from the side of the grouphead, would water come out under line pressure?

Re: S1 Vivaldi II - no water through grouphead, have tried everything!

1) Sounds good
2) The steam pressure seems to be working fine? Still in need of replacing?
3)I think I got as far as a&b, will see if i can get further.

I'll order a new solenoid now and start there.

Re: S1 Vivaldi II - no water through grouphead, have tried everything!

Chas and Slo, Thanks again! Slo- OK, so to work through your thoughts: Boiler fills - no flow at all even under line pressure. I completely disassembled the group and 3 way valve. I took the group head over to the sink and dropped a some water into the channels the 3 way is connected to and water di...

Re: S1 Vivaldi II - no water through grouphead, have tried everything!

Chas, Really appreciate the prompt response! Lines are all clear, no leaks whatsoever. It does in fact have the timer, made sure that it certainly is turned off at the control box. Diffuser and screen are off - still nothing. I really did trace the entire path of water and can't find a single blocka...

Hello all, First post here, thanks for letting me jump into this great forum. I have read just about every thread related to my issue and have had the entire machine apart twice now and am striking out. Here's the scenario. I picked up this used S1 Vivaldi II on ebay.
