Topic: Andreja direct connect problems. (8 msgs / 111 lines)
1) From: Jim Gundlach
Well over a year ago I bought the Andreja Premium with the direct  
connect kit from Sweet Maria's.   Well, given my usual  
procrastination,  today I finally installed the kit.  When I turn the  
machine on, I get a high pitched squeaking sound.  I get water through  
the portafilter when I lift the lever but there is no water coming out  
the hot water nozzle.  I have an email into Sweet Maria's but I  
thought I would check to see if anyone on the list had a similar  
experience as well.

I opened it up again and tried to look for an air bubble.  While I had  
it open I decided to disconnect the hose from the solenoid, plugged it  
in and turned it on.  I am getting no solenoid action.

I have work back from Sweet Maria's and they recommend I contact  
Chris' Coffee.   I called and they are closed for the day so I guess  
no espresso tomorrow.  I will pick up things so we can use the  
kitchen.   I'm sad.

Poor guy--I feel your pain.  When you run it off the tank, does it  
work? (so you can have espresso in the meantime)

I uninstalled the kit and put the tank back in.  I got no sound of  
pumping of water into boiler so I'm afraid to let it heat up.  I can  
still get cold water to pump through the portafilter but that is not  
going to do me any good.

The pump might have to run to get water into the steam boiler, it 
does on my machine. There should be a water level sensor if it has an 
autofill and the heater should be off if the water is low.  I'd turn 
the heater on for a few seconds and see if a pump starts up at the same time.

Ira,
     Thanks,   Chris at Chris' Coffee suggested the same thing and it  
worked.    I'll have espresso in the morning.  I'm happy.  I will call  
them in the morning about the other problems.
