Topic: Solis SL-90 hot enough? (7 msgs / 166 lines)
1) From: Richard Estes

Hello friendly coffee lovers;
I recently made he plunge and purchased a Solis Crema SL-90.  I am hoping
for some advice from you other Solis owners. I am a little concerned about
the brew temp. After noticing that the brew did not seem quite hot enough, I
got out my digital thermometer and was surprised to find that the water
temp. coming out of the boiler was only reaching a max of 175 F?? This was
after having the unit on for close to an hour before the test. I tested the
water coming from the brew head and from the steam wand with the same
result.
Is there a problem here? Is there a way of adjusting the temp, or should I
plan on returning the unit??

Richard,
I'm a Solis owner but mine's the SM5K.  The obvious question would be,
have you checked the line voltage?    I don't believe the heat is
adjustable, but I'll leave that to the LARGE SL-90 club to answer.

Richard,
The heat is adjustable by removing a resister from the circuit.  I have done
it but it has been awhile.  My advise is call Baratza, talk to Josie Hein
and she will send you complete instructions along with pictures, which are
helpful if you've no experience with this kind of thing.

Just looked thru all my old emails and I don't have the one detailing this
procedure any longer.  Did find Josie's email: josiehein .
