That might be the reading for the inlet water pressure, it should go the 9 bar when the pump is activated.

Lets see if we are on the same page here, without the portafilters in place no water flows out of the groupheads, correct. Ok, first I would check the pump gauge to make sure it was going to 9bars when the pump is running. Then I would remove the front panel and check the solenoids on the group that is not working to make sure the coil works. Run the head for a few seconds and then stop if water drains out the bottom of solenoid, we can move on, if not turn machine off and let it cool down, turn off water supply. Then remove black coil, by removing the discharge tube then 14mm nut. Next loosen silver tube nut and remove. Do Not Remove The Allen Wrench Screws. Now Turn on the water quickly to see if water flows from middle of square brass fitting. If not use a paper clip to clear and try again by opening the water quickly and closing it. If water flows use an ohms meter to check the coil. If the coil is fine then the problem is higher in the machine you will have to remove the top panel. The machine is blocked at the metering jet, possible because one side is not being used as often or a new filter was installed without being flushed. The metering jet is on one of the big nuts on the top of the group.

You will have to adjust the pump. there is an adjustment nut on the side of the pumphead, if you screw it in that gives you more pressure, and if you loosen less.

my spanish is not good but i think you have a the hot water solonoid valve is stuck open or has a piece of scale keeping it from sealing,if it is a manual valve the plunger gasket or valve seat needs to be replaced.

First thing check the manual fill under drain tray to make sure it is in the off position, next check the water level in the sight glass, I will assume the machine has a level probe connected to the boiler and not the level card on the sight glass. Next check the inlet valve. If water comes into the boiler without stopping when the machine is turn on and it overfills then the connection on the level probe is missing or the inlet solenoid is not closing and needs to be checked for blockage.

No, the inverter is designed to compensate the battery voltage drop . Most likely the unit has a bad connection, either at the heater (or its thermostat) or at the pressure pump.
You will have to open it and check the electrical connectors and the status of the pump.

It should be single phase but it can be converted to 3 phase power. Max power will consumption will depend on the size of the element that is installed. I do not know if you have a 6300w or a 5000w element. There is a face plate on the front with the power consumption.

Machine is not heating, the lights should flash until it heats up to 1.2 bar on the top gauge. If not check the water level in the machine and check the red reset switch to see if the thermostat tripped.

Check the diffuser and screen, try swapping them around to make sure that is the problem. If that is not he problem then the tubes from the exchangers need to be descaled.

It is most likely that something is blocking the pathway to the grinder. As the Rocky is a direct drive grinder there is no gear that could be broken.
Try to remove the beans from the hopper and inspect the pathway, move the beans that might be under the 'disk'. If that is not working you might have to open the grinder;
  • remove all coffee beans
  • unscrew the three screws in the bottom of the hopper
  • remove the hopper
Now you can see the grinder wheel and tell if it is turning normally.
This might be a good opportunity to give the grinder a thorough cleaning.
Do not soak it in water, just a stiff small brush (e.g. a toothbrush) is the best tool. And perhaps accompanied by a vacuum cleaner :)
If you have been using very 'oily' beans for a long time they might have clogged the grinding wheels.

Good luck,
