  1. Hello people, I'm hoping to get some expert advice (would be very thankful) to final sort my Faema E61 trouble. My knowledge is quite limited. I have 4 years Barista experience but no engineering or coffee machine internals knowledge. I've been learning about E61 as I go along. I had to restore and descale my Faema E61 recently and after putting it back together I'm having issues with the pump, compensation valve and setting pressure. When I pull a shot and run the group head there is a loud squeal that I can't seem to get rid of. I've read this could be lubrication as noise comes fr
  2. Anfim sent me a manual but figured it out in the end. I thought it was a de-clumper but it's classed as finger protection spout. It's rectangular shaped with looped ends where screws go through.
  3. I think I've figured out through some Korean video that the wire is a kind of clump crusher. Would just love to know how it goes back in!
  4. LOL Just figured out the burrs come off via a screw turn mechanism. No wonder there are no instructions as it's that easy. Well, I feel silly! It's great to actually figure out If anyone could point me in the direction of the internals and that wire it would be much appreciated!Cheers,Steve
  5. Hi people, I'm flabbergasted to find nothing online about taking the anfim scody II apart for cleaning. I was having trouble getting my espresso to taste nice and I bought the Anfim in very good used condition but I think it must have had robusta through or something as the stale coffee smelt so bad. Either that or it was really dark coffee. Anyway wanted to take it apart but haven't owned or used one before. I took out the three allen key bolts which I presumed took the lid off to get to the burrs but this actually lifts the whole internals of the grinder out. In the process of doing
  6. Hi Folks, really need some help and advice as I'm a novice and sh** seems to have hit the fan. I probably shouldn't have taken this on with so little experience but just don't have the money for engineers so had to take on myself. Firstly I started the job just to downgrade the element and after discussions with my friend (a qualified electrician) and members of the group, decided to just take out one of the bars on the original element. I'll post some pics of the wiring I did, just incase this is one of the causes. I took out the top 2 black wires from the element and put them in s
  7. Cheers for the advice man. My electrician friend figured out the wiring bit recon I’ll still need to downrate element to 2700 as he says it’ll just be above 13 amp (JUST) with fluctuations.
  8. This is what I’m trying to figure out with a friend about 3 phase or single. We think that it can be wired for both. He seems to think motor is 3 phase but a guy who has a shop and had one of these said it isn’t. ??*♂️ Ive taken some photos of stamp but will get some more of element tomorrow. Its 2010 model according to motor Cheers, steve
  9. Hello, Anyone have any experience of downgrading E61s? There doesn't seem to be any info online or youtube. Is it just a matter of changing heating element or is rewiring also required? Cheers, Steve
  10. Sorry to hear this man! This is my worry after spending the money. I just saw your reply on my thread about on demand for leisure battery. I wish I'd seen it before I bought my Anfim on demand! I think I may stick to working for a fixed premises the at least you can work from a fixed location and market people to come to you All the best in selling! Cheers, Steve
  11. Aye. I know what you're saying. If I had the money I'd rather have a gas machine in the van. Maybe best to look at a loan. I'd like to be flexible, which that set was hoping to be but maybe I could get a one group dual machine to start with then at least if I do indoor or weddings it's transportable. Obviously would have to look at numbers with a one group. Then if I do festivals or big events I could put the big machine in if I'm ready with a plug and play socket.
  12. The machine I currently have isn't dual fuel so would have to be looking at big petrol generator to in the back of the van with an exhaust running through the floor to get rid of fumes. Don't think I can justify buying another machine as just don't have the budget for that.
