Question about ECM Giotto Espresso Machine
I have a 5 year old Giotto. Today when I turned it on the pressure immediately skyrocketed. I turned it off and back on again. The pressure gauge returned to its normal position. When I opened the steam valve I had no steam and the pressure gauge dropped to zero - the same thing happened when the hot water valve was opened. When I turned on the brewhead water came out but it was like warm. When it is turned on now it makes quite a racket. Any advice ??? Thanks
The vent valve on the machine is stuck in the open position. Turn on the machine and open the steam wand until you hear a hiss or see small water bubbles from nozzle, let it steam out a little more then close wand, that should allow the machine to heat up correctly, then order a new vent valve for the machine.

I am having a similar problem. Doesn't happen all the time, just sometimes. My research has led me to believe it might be the vacuum breaker valve. I am going to order a new one here:
I'll replace mine & post if it fixes it.
