I wanted to share some insights I had recently on 'programming' my La Marzocco GS/3 AV. I needed to get into the offline menu.
As you might know, the La Marzocco has two types of menus: an online-mode where you can set the clock, machine name etc. and an offline-mode, where it gets really advanced.
In the manual you will find these instructions to access the offline-mode:
Power off your machine
Power on your machine while holding the function button for around 10 seconds
Now, according to the manual you have entered the offline-mode menu.
Well, on my machine, that didn't work. I have a machine from 2019 and it was the last one, without the WiFi module. Luckily, when I bought the machine, they placed the La Marzocco Retro kit into my GS/3, allowing me to connect it to WiFi and of course the La Marzocco App.
But due to this nice enhancement, I couldn't access my offline-mode menu.
So, after searching around I finally stumbled across some information on how to enter the menu. And actually this is quite simple 😃
Set your machine in stand-by mode (a feature that comes with the retro kit) by pushing the function and the power button at the same time.
Then, when in stand-by mode, press the function button for around 10 seconds.
When you see the Language Selection appear, you know that you are in the offline-mode menu!
