Riese, this is a delayed response to the Gicar troubleshooting directions that you gave me on the closed thread. Attached is a still shot showing me jumping the reservoir contacts. The installed Gicar does not recognize the reservoir completion circuit.
(The harness wires are connected to the eight terminals of the replacement Gicar the same way that they were connected to the modification Gicar.)
Riese, please understand that when I first contacted you, I was not expecting something for nothing. I had assumed that your shop had supplied reservoir L1s to the American market and I was expecting to buy a replacement Gicar from you.
When you established that the L1 had been modded by David Cividanes, I was completely, unpleasantly surprised, as I expect you were, too.
Since David was not an espresso machine technician, it begs the question: who modified the machine for him? We both do not know.
When I did not receive an offer of a controller from you, I turned to two domestic shops, neither of which were familiar with the L1. They both offered me the same Gicar that they had in stock without any knowledge of the machine’s circuits. As it is, I wasted my money on this inappropriate replacement.
If your shop assembles reservoir machines for the American (120 volt) market, do you have a controller to sell me? If you do not make 120 volt reservoir machines, do you have any suggestions?
