I am in Aspen for the summer from NYC and I wonder if this problem is altitude related... When I press the brew button, there is a rush of water coming out in an uncontrolled manner. after a few blank shots, it returns to a normal stream, but then it starts again. It ruins my shots a lot and it's hard to predict when it's going to happen again. The machine is out of warranty and I am wondering if this is some kind of adjustment that I can do if I open it up myself...
I had this problem also as an effect of the heating element having burnt through within the boiler. Crappy design - keeps "kinda" working even though there is a serious problem. See other Francis-Francis Fixya posts where I go into more detail.

Hi, this happens when you re-inflate the tyres or you swap them with the winter/summer ones.
Just keep pressed the SET PRESSURE button for few seconds until the warning light is off and that means that the pressure tyres is now calibrated. Obviously you must setup the right pressure before this operation.
Go to altitude view (ALTI) - may need to press 'Sensor' (top left) once, and then 'Mode' (bottom left) to display. Press and hold Mode until display starts flashing. Keep pressing Mode until the setting you want to change is flashing, then use right-hand side buttons to change. Press and hold Mode again to get out of the setting interface. The different altitude settings which you can change between using the Start/stop (top right) button: ZERO - for use when skiing or when you want to measure a relative change in altitude. ALTI - Input known measurement above sea level SEAP. - Current air pressure F.DEF - Factory reset barometer to 1013.2hPa
You should carefully read the manual on this watch. It is a very sophisticated instrument realitive to its cost.
The barometric pressure in the CAL mode is set to the reference sea level. The pressure that is read in the other areas is the actual or relative pressure at your location.
There are some tollerences for the accuracy of these watches. What they are excellent at is seeing the relative differences or changes. I found that when I set the reference barometric pressure (Sea Level Pressure), everything falls in to place. I found the WP4 to be accurate to within about 15 to 20 feet accuracy for altitude most of the time. It is important to periodically check the barometric pressure from the weather office if you want it to be as accurate as possible.
When hiking or out trecking, it is advisable to check the watch's altitude relative to the map that you are using, or to a known reference. Then as you travel you can check for the altitude change.
Take care that this type of watch is to be used as a quick or easy reference only. It is not certified to be used in situations where life and safety are fully dependent on the readings from this type of watch. It is a precision instrument, but not as precise as the high end professional certified types. It is best to refer to proper maps (charts), and depend on a certified mechanical compass for absolute reference.
Atmospheric pressure will vary day by day even though you know your altitude. Call your local weather station and ask for the current pressure. Then set the same pressure on your barometer. If theyare at a different allitude to you but within the same pressure area, you will have to calculate the press. diff for your altitude diff.
Certain functions need to be calibrated. The altimeter and the Meteo are tied together. When a customer gets the watch, they should calibrate to either the Meteo or Altimeter. The easiest way to find out the altitude of the nearest airport (you can usually get this on line) and then go to the airport and adjust the watch. This will also calibrate the Meteo.
To calibrate the Altimeter:
1. Activate Crystal 2. Press Altimeter 3. Press and hold top + button until the watch beeps and display flashes. 4. Use + and – buttons to adjust altitude 5. Press center of dial to lock in.
