  1. Can someone advise please. Puly Caff or Cafiza for descaling on a regular basis in a la Spaziale mini Vivaldi please. Perhaps citric acid would be better I have ordered some milton for the water tank and grease just incase lol Thanks
  2. I bought some citric acid crystals ready for when I need to descale, I decided to try it on a kettle that was pretty bad, our water is fairly hard and this kettle had never been descaled. I followed the recommended procedure and used a teaspoon of citric acid. It didn't do much so I tried again, again very little difference. I then tried a measure of Kilrock, within 10 minutes this had dissolved all the scale in the kettle and it looked as good as new. So did I get poor citric acid crystals or is it just not very effective? Is Kilrock ok to use in my machine? It didn't smell great but the results were good. Anyone else compared other products? I also need other cleaned products to clean the group etc, not quite yet but maybe in a few months, looking for recommendations. Thanks
  3. Hi, I thought I'd share a picture of the mushroom of my Pro 700 after 10 months of only running Ashbeck through it, making, most of the time, 1 latte and 1 flat white per day. Should I descale in a few months time? Thanks.
  4. Hi CoffeeForumers, I have a Dualshit DCM2 that my Dad gave me when it stopped working. It just made a horrendous sound when switched on and primed. In fact it didn't prime at all, trying three times before giving up. Very loud. I believe this to be because there was no water getting to the pump. I thought maybe the pump was on its last legs. So, I stripped it down to get to the pipework. I cleaned out all the pipes with stiff wire and vinegar. Reassembled the device and started it up. Sucess! I now get steam and hot water at good pressure and flow rate from the milk frother wand but when I switch to "coffee cup" mode, it has three goes at priming and then make a low volume, humming pump sound but nothing comes out of the shower head. Like the water is stuck somewhere. Another pipe? An internal blockage in the die-cast metal heating section? I have cleaned the shower head in vinegar but it seems to me that the water isn't quite getting to that final section for some reason. Assuming there's still a blockage somewhere the pipework attaches to in the die-cast metal of the heating section, I will be stripping down and repeating the process. But, before i do that... Can the milk frother be working but the shower head not working for any reason other than pipe blockage? Could it be pump related at all? The pump goes quieter when the water is trying to go the shower head route. I can provide pictures or youtube vid if that would help but maybe someone has some insight just from the description? Strange that I got one process working (the steam wand) but not the main coffee making section. It seems most likely to be another blockage somewhere, I'm just not looking forward to taking all the screws out... again. Thanks for reading, hope you can help!
  5. I just finished a full teardown and rebuild of a Gaggia Classic and it's not pulling water through. Seems to be the solenoid valve but I took it apart and descaled it. Any ideas on how to troubleshoot? I'm a bit stuck now
  6. I have a sylvia (V2 I think) and am getting an issue where water/steam is bubbling BACK into the water reservoir The temperature of the water is hot, but I don't think it's just thermostat failure, more likely a blockage or leak The flow is far too low out of the head. I've cleaned so far with puly caff/blanking plate, but the blockage is clearly further back - even here it doesn't look as if the pressure 'builds' as much as normal for the back flow I intend to use some descaler tonight or tomorrow night. Any suggestions as to the likely cause? Blockage? Limescale?
  7. Hi there! I'm relatively new to the espresso world. I've inherited a barista express (yes I've read its not the best but its perfect for me) and would love to keep it working as long as possible. It's been around a year, and afraid that the London hard water was affecting it I ran it through a descaling procedure. After reading about how tough descaling is on machines I now regret that and flushed the whole machine thoroughly. Lesson learned and I'll never descale again. Sage makes hard water filters, which I read are ion exchange resin based, so if I let the water sit in the tank with this filter over night (I'll stir it before brewing to get the water more airated) and change the filter every 4-6 weeks (instead of 8 weeks as recommended by manual) should all my bases be covered? Is there anything else I can do to improve the water so that it doesn't build up scale in the machine? The manual specifically says to only use tap water, so I am curious a) why they say that, and B) why so many people recommend bottled water? What are the risks? Thank you!
  8. Hi all After many years of using and heavily modifying Gaggia SBDU Baby/Classics my curiosity has finally got the better of me and I snaffled up a secondhand refurbed/repaired Sage Dual (yes, from XSitems). I know the risks of buying secondhand and but am sufficiently skilled in diagnosing and repairing Gaggia units (albeit only SBDU ones) that I figured I'd take the risk, if only to get first hand experience of how the Sage DB works. Anyways, the good news is that it appears to work fine. The case is in good condition, there are no signs of leaks, the pumps make the expected noises and it makes lovely coffee when paired with my K30. So far, so good. Question: the "Descale" message appears on start up - no problem, I have plenty of experience of descaling - I live in Manchester, the water is very soft here so we get little scale build up, if at all - however since I don't know the machine's history I'm tempted to descale it... Having done plenty of research on the web it seems to me there's quite a risk of actually doing damage to the machine, given the number of examples of people experiencing problems (esp with the steam boiler element it seems). Soooo, it's working perfectly well right now, I live in a very soft water area - would anyone care to advice me whether to go ahead with a descale or just leave it alone? Thanks in advance. Jerry
  9. I picked up my first classic last week and only got around to having a play with it yesterday, only to find that when running some water through it, there was a few little black particles and a small amount of lime scale in the water. 1. Should I be looking to flush this out wit some descaler? If so should I opt for the Gaggia liquid or tartaric acid? (I have some tartaric acid but I'm not sure what ratio I should use, or I can order some gaggia solution online) 2. Strip out e boiler and clear it out with a dremel style tool? 3. Replace the boiler. Any help would be greatly appreciated, I'm a little bit gutted to say the least, as I was really looking forward to making some proper coffee
  10. Ok I admit it, I have been negligent, It’s been 3 years since I did a descale of my expobar dual leva I decided to check the mushroom and was pleasantly surprised to see it was pretty clean. The Edinburgh water is very soft, maybe too soft and some more minerals would improve flavour? The other side is completely clean so I think I will leave it for a while yet.
  11. Hi all. Very new to all this! I bought a second hand Gaggic Classic as my first machine and it has been sitting for a while so I want to rebuild it from scratch before firing it up. My main concern is water contamination due to limescale and other ickyness - I don't want to be drinking coffee made with dirty water! I've taken the boiler and copper parts apart and descaled them with citric acid which worked well. The main pieces that are left now is the water pump, the silicon tubes and the teflon tube. Firstly is it possible to decale the water pump? Can I open it up and take it apart? Can I run something through the machine instead to clean it? Secondly is it worth replacing the teflon tubing that's connected to the top of the water pipe? I took one nut off and it looks quite scaled and for peace of mind I would prefer to replace it. Finally how can I replace the two silicon tubes? I bought a replacement tube which is a single piece that's 1 meter long whereas the existing tubes inside the machine are much shorter. Is it as simple as cutting the tube I have to length with a Stanley knife to length and popping it on the existing pump headers? I couldn't find much online about replacing the silicon tubes. These questions I'm sure are terribly basic so apologies and thanks in advance!
  12. Hey all, I know there is plenty of discussion on Citric Acid previously and have looked at these, however, just want to see if people had any direct recommendations. There are loads of variants and versions of this on eBay etc, however, none of which have any real info on concentrations. So, nice and easy, does anyone have any links for what they've used and what they know works well. Not that it matters hugely, but it will be to descale the Fracino Cherub. Thanks all.
  13. Hi All, I have a problem with my three-year-old Quick Mill Verona insofar as the rotary pump has stalled/seized. I can hear it electrically buzzing, but there is no rotation. I'm pretty sure it's not an electrical fault but excessive scale build-up within the pump head as it is well overdue for a descale. But this creates a Catch-22 situation. I can't flush descaler through the machine if the pump won't run, so how do I get round the problem? I know I should have descaled sooner, so it's my fault it has happened... any advice gratefully received. Thanks in anticipation. In all other respects, the Verona is still superb. Tony
  14. Just got out the bag of items which came with my DTP so that I could do a descale. What are the tablets on the left of the attached photo? It says on the label 'insert one tablet in the special opening' Once the Sage provided stuff is used up can I use Puly cleaner as I have a box left from when I had the Gaggia. Richard
  15. I have bought a used La Pavoni and it needed a good descale. After trying a sachet of oust (20 mins) and then some vinegar (overnight), most of the scale is gone, however there are still areas of stubborn scale left. These don't appears to fizz when putting vinegar in. The element is now clean, so not sure if I need to worry about what's left? Is it worth trying some citric acid next?
  16. Hi all, It would seem that my faultless verona is no longer faultless following a full descaling session where there is now a very small leak (10-20ml over the space of 8 hours) has developed. That aside, a more serious fault has developed where the boiler suddenly lost pressure and this was due to the feed inside the water tank not being submerged in the water correctly. Now these units automatically detect when there is no water feed and either top up or switch off - however this didn't happen. I'm beginning to think when I set the brew boiler switch off for the draining sequence I may have inadvertently switched something else off. With this in mind, is there a list of PID settings for this machine so that I can review as I'm struggling to find anything on the net. With regards to the leak I will review this (take it apart or send back to bella for repair) but I'd rather deal with this more serious issue first which is most likely a setting (I am hoping). Thanks in advance. Mark
  17. I contacted Fracino and was told I never have to descale my machine. I find this hard to believe. Has anyone descaled their retro and how did you go about this?
  18. hi all there is lot of conflicting info out there on this subject. Rocket for example say do not use descaling solutions and Francino say you dont need to as long as you use soft water. Guy from Fracino says use Brita filter as some bottled water do more harm then good. Any advice? Im getting a new Cherub and want to get it right from first use ha
  19. Morning all, Picked up a second hand Bambino recently for my workshop. Unit was serviced in November of this year and had lots of new parts (inc element), however on setting the unit up my water appears to be rather cloudy (even after leaving it settled for a long time, so clearly not just bubbles) previous owner had the unit running with a dual filter setup and i am running the Fracino DSU 10L filter (flushed before use with 5 buckets of water, although was running clear by bucket 3) I am planning on dropping the water out today and inspecting the boiler for scale, there was a picture of the boiler internal on the advert and it was good so am i right in thinking if there is scale its probably in the pipes? It is mostly noticeable if pouring hot water from the hot water tap, but also its not perfect coming from the group heads either. Is it worth me running a descale first? If so what with (citric acid?) and what is the process?
  20. Hi Folks, Just bought a second hand Gaggia classic from eBay, it is an older made in Italy polished chrome model with the limited addition colored metal Gaggia badge/Logo on the front. The seller advised it has been in their loft for years and prior to that didn't see much use. All looks good and most pleased with it so far. Very shiny and only slight evidence of coffee residue in the group head and basket. After flushing a couple of tanks of fresh water through, it made a (to my uneducated palate!) very nice espresso and latte, but figured i should give it a good clean and descale to start as i mean to go on... I ordered some puly caff cleaner, blanking plate and some puly cafe descaler and am waiting for them to arrive, my question, as per the thread title - which should i used first? the descaler or the cleaner? Thanks!
  21. Just checked out Puly descaler sachets on amazon which the description states isn't suitable for thermocoil/block machines. Just single and dual boilers. Any idea what descaler is suitable? Excluding the overpriced sachets sold by Sage Many thanks
  22. Hi there, I bought a second hand Gaggia classic and descaled (Gaggia own descaler) and backflushed (Cafiza) as instructed by a Gaggia Classic video. I have since flushed at least five tanks of water and made about 10 espressos only to find out that there's still some very little white particles in the water (alongside a few coffee grains) when I run just water through the group head. Do I need to continue flushing water through the machine or go for another descale? PS I've been using normal tap water (Birmingham) and water from a Brita Jug - it makes no difference whatsoever. Thanks, Dan
  23. I've had my Sage Oracle for almost a year now, and I have to say, the coffee it makes is very good. You just need to spend some time adjusting to your tastes. It is also very sensitive to the quality of coffee beans you use: type, freshness etc. So a lot of adjustments even if you use the same beans but a "new batch". My problem really is from the error messages that I get. Change Filter, Service, Descale. These started to come up after a week of use so initially I thought nothing of it and followed instructions accordingly. However subsequently when it reappeared again after a short time I called it in (as it is still under warrantee) and an engineer was dispatched. To cut the story short, I have had quite a few visits, but the issue never got resolved. I have even had the machine taken away to be tested but the service people couldn't replicate after they reset the machine and tested at theirs for a month. When the machine was returned to me, I get the error messages popping up again after a few days use. The last resort was to change the machine altogether, but this still didn't resolve my problems. Same tests were made on the second replacement machine but the error messages that pop up could not be replicated at the service centre, just at mine. I have had my machine returned to me, the engineer whom I got to know by now, and myself noted that there were no error messages on receipt of the machine. However all messages popped up again the following day. My final test: I followed the instructions to reset the machine, put a surge protector on the machine, but unfortunately I still get the error messages popping up - incidentally the messages can be random, all coming up, or some coming up but always at least two error messages. Any ideas? Anything else I can test? Is there a different/more thorough reset I can do to test out with the surge protector? It is all very frustrating! The coffee produced is fine, just the annoying error messages!
  24. So... managed to get the pretty stuck element out of the Cherub boiler to find a rather poor sight of scale. Nothing unexpected, but a decent build up from hard London water (I presume). Since it's completely isolated I can get it filled up well and descale and flush however I want. What would you say the usual ratio in such a case could be before getting into trouble? For a normal flush through I was using 50g citric for every 2L of water. Internally, the boiler is covered with a film of scale, and in some places there is quite a bit more of it.. Cheers!
  25. Hi Does anyone have a clear set of instructions for descaling a Cherub that they would recommend please. I have searched but thought someone might have a link to one that they used. Thanks in advance
