Do it. It has the horsepower. You will probably just need to program the shots accordingly, and maybe get a deep basket for your portafilter.

sounds like you may have a bad switch. sometimes switches stay permanently open. if that is the case, the switch needs to be replaced. if you have a multimeter ;you can check the switches to see if they are open or not. if it reads less than mega ohms, the switch is probably bad.

Where to get it repaired?????


Try Mr. Espresso in Oakland, CA www.mrespresso.com. While they don't typically supply Astra, I believe they are familiar with the brand and can refer you to a technician if they can't service it themselves. Astra will also service their own machines, but you would probably have to ship it to their shop in LA.

Automatic astra II pulls a few great shots then error light on


The error light usually comes on when there is no water flow through the group after about 5 - 10 seconds, indicating a clog of some sort. The fact that it happens after two shots, however could indicate an issue with the processor. The problem with the steam wand could also point to a clog situation, especially in the other wand is working. First, try running shots through the problem group with no grounds at all in the portafilter; Say five or six shots if you can to see if you get the error light. Look at the water flow in the process: The water should just pour out of the portafilter. If the water is running freely and you still get the error light, you are probably looking at a processor/sensor problem. If not, it may just be a restriction. Remove the screw from the middle of the group head (the diffuser), and remove the screen and the brass plate and check them for clogging. You really want to wait until the machine is cold before you do so as the parts will be extremely hot. As for the wand, try removing it, and check it for obstruction.

Astra Mega II <----Need help!


The left grouphead sounds like a different problem than the right group head. For the left grouphead, I would start by replacing the group electro-valve. With hard water, this can cause the valve to remain in the closed position even though the water pump is running.

For the right group head, I would want to see this happen. Usually, if the gaskets haven't been replaced in a while (if you are busy, your 'while' may be quicker than others), I would evaluate the condition of the rubber gasket. I would also look at whether you are tamping too much espresso grounds into the portafilter. This can cause a similar symptom as a bad gasket.

Water flow


You will have to adjust your shot timing, and possibly your grind. To program the shot timing, hold the Brew Stop button until all of the brew lights come on; That means all of the buttons are ready to program. Next, pull some grind for your portafilter and push the button you want to program. For a single, you want to pull a 1 oz shot in about 15-20 seconds; longer for a double. When you push the button, the shot will start to pull; when the shot is complete, push the button again to set it. Then do the same for the next button. Each group needs to be programed separately. Holding the the Brew Stop button again will turn out the remaining lights and save your programming to that point. As to the grind, you want to have the grind fine enough to give you a quality shot in the right amount of time. Good Luck!
