What are the different settings on coffee machine power knob for?
I've got an AZKOYEN AZ04/M coffee machine which has a power knob with 4 positions. OFF, TEST, 1 & 2. It works fine and makes coffee perfectly well on either setting 1 or setting 2. I can't find the manual anywhere and wondered if anyone knows the difference. Using a power meter on the socket, it seems to use the same amount of watts on either setting. Is it a fast heat up or cleaning setting? 1 cup or two cup? Perhaps these type of settings are common to other brands of professional espresso machine. Any help gratefully received! Thanks.

Re: What are the different settings on coffee machine...
On other machines with the position switches, 2 turns on the whole machine (elements heatup and groups work). Position 1 turns on only the groups but the machine never heats up. I have never worked on an azkoyen, but the test switch could be for the the board and the autofill circuits, instead of the technician turning the machine to 1 to test those functions, they provided a test position on the switch.

There are several different warnings involving the red exclamation mark. One that comes up some times is back-pressure in the system. If you are unable to get it to do anything, try pushing the hot-water button and turning the steam knob to the open position. If that's your problem, you should get some water coming out rapidly followed the pump coming on briefly. Turn the knob to "off" and the machine should be fine.
This is the most likely problem. IF it doesn't help, let me know. There are others I might be able to help with.
Hi coffee friend I have just answered this question. I think After you have done all the cleaning you have done, you can try this: do check that all knobs correctly set. That the steam spout is closed. that the water tank sitter correctly Disconnect from power, wait 2-3minutes connect again and hope for the best. Kolbrun
Add water to the left side, tighten well.
Put milk in the stainless steel carafe.
Add coffee to the left side container in the filter basket.
Place carafe under the coffee container.
Turn knob toward you to the 'off' position.
Turn power to 'on' on Espresso (left) side.
Once coffee is about halfway brewed, place stainless steel carafe with milk under the steamer with spout just below milk line, and turn knob away from you to the 'on' position. Frothing the milk is an art form and becomes easier with practice.
Make sure all steam is depleted, then enjoy your cappuccino!
To make espresso, do the above without the milk.
Hi To start off with, you should not change the big knob unless the grinder is operating at the time. Set the small knob to the middle position. You can move this any time. Move towards the + mark to strengthen the coffee, but never all the way to the full +. Set the big knob to the #8 to start off with. Move it 1 # smaller to make the coffee stronger but be careful not to get it to fine as you will clog the grinder and you will have to take it apart to clean. If you ever get an out of beans light, but there are beans in the hopper, open the knob to #16 for 1 cycle, then turn it back down to a # 1 larger than you had before and leave it unless you get the message again. Shiny beans call for a coarser grind than a dull bean because of the oils in the coffee bean. Oils will cause the grinds to stick together and cause clogs faster than beans that have less oil.
