    How is your water supply, pressure and volume? How often does it have to be decriminalized?

    I did a quick refresh of my mind and a small bit of digging, The symptoms you describe may be a overheat. The high temp limit is in series with the water board and will show as low water.

    You can find a service manual here.

    What power is this set up for?

    They have a history or the heat relay sticking Make sure you have heat sink compound if you remove it.

    I’m not saying the switch is the problem, buy you should monitor it and check the temp setting. If you are at a higher altitude, water boils at a lower temperature.

    There is one important thing to check before replacing any parts. That’s that the water control board and the steam unit have a good ground. The ground is used for sensing the water level. You describe the problem as at first start or cold start. Everything is growing and moving from heat expansion at that time. I would think that a high resistance ground connection would vary from that.

    Thanks for the advise, I will ensure that I have a good ground connection.
