Hi all,

I have recently bought a La Scarla Carmen 2 Group Manual Machine second- hand.

My problem is that it''s got a switch that turns either way with 1 or 2 on it.

I have sussed that 1 turns on the boiler and the machine operates normally but on 2 nothing seems to happen. Does anyone know what it''s for???

Also there''s a fair bit of rusty coloured water coming out of the hot water tap......I thought maybe through it sitting about doing nothing???

Anyway thanks for any responses. :shock:

Usually they represent certain stages that the machine can be turned on to. Some machines will turn on at 1 but will not engage the heating element. Mostly for the purpose of filling the machine and for diagnostics. 2 would be all on.

As for you boiler I would highly suggest you fill it and drain it a few times before you use it.
