    I’m happy enough to get stuck in to anything mechanical, but nothing electrical. What’s the expected lifespan of a rotary pump?

    I haven’t, but still can. Two years seems good, but would you recommend extending?

    You’re right, two appeared in stock after I’d last looked. Trigger pulled.

    Well, with Espresso Underground having upped the price it means I don’t need to even worry about the decision anymore. Bella Barista it is. Sadly, out of stock.

    Yep, I'm well aware of how good BB's reputation is. However, the price difference isn't insignificant, so was hoping someone had experience of purchasing via Espresso Underground. I think I'll drop them a line and see what they say re warranty and after sales.

    I'm close to taking the plunge on one of these. I'd assumed I'd be looking to BB for the purchase, but noticed that Lelit sell direct for £1600. Obviously I want a proper warranty and ease if it comes to needing anything fixed, so would that price mean that isn't offered if one were to purchase direct from Lelit?
  7. I didn’t try it again after cooling down, but will do. If that doesn’t work I’ll look at the overheat fuse, though I worry I’m I’ll equipped to mess about with electrics. Thanks all.
  8. Hello all. My trusty ten year old Classic has blown and I need some advice as to how to fix it. I have it on a timer switch and since it was last used, someone has switched the pump to the on position. So this morning, when the timer switched the machine on, the pump immediately pulled all of the wasted from the reservoir, dumped it over the floor and then burned out (I assume). My wife found it in this state and switched it off at the mains. When I investigated, the pump made a humming noise, but wouldn’t pump water. Is there anything else likely to be wrong other than needi
  9. Great stuff. Service kit ordered. Thanks again
  10. Thanks for the reply. Is the work required doable by someone with the diy skills of a 4 year old? Not my strong point, but can follow instructions and spin a screwdriver.
  11. Hi there, I’m hoping someone can help as my Classic is on the blink. When turned on normally it’s started overheating to steam temperature, as though the switch has been set to steam (which it hasn’t). The machine is very old now and I was considering an upgrade anyway, so depending on how difficult/expensive this is to fix I may go this route. However, if it’s very simple it be great. Thanks in advance. Tom
  12. Just a quick update - Destruction Method was implemented this evening and all went very smoothly. Thanks to everyone for their suggestions and tips, hugely appreciated.
  13. Thank you, that's a very kind offer. I've actually ordered all of the parts I'll need to rebuild things once Destruction Method has been implemented, so hopefully will have it sorted soon.
  14. Ha, to be honest the total destruction method sounds like the best bet. Nothing else will budge the screw. wish me luck
  15. Thanks all. Some of those suggestions I've tried with no success, but the pliers and Dremel will be attempted next.
