  1. Hi all, I just bought a brand new Silvia from coffe Italia, I’ve had it a couple of days and to my surprise there is some sort of smell coming out of the water. It is quite noticeable even though I put a lot of water trough it. I can also taste it in the espresso. I have backflushed the machine once which didn’t change anything. Is there anyone here that had the same problem? The smell is somewhat plasticy. Any tips would be greatly appreciated Thanks !
  2. Hi all. I picked up a second hand MC2 along with a gaggia classic last year and overall I've been really pleased with it. The only issue I have is that occasionally it doesn't grind when I press the button. Most of the time it's fine, and when it does stop working it usually starts working again with 30 seconds - but I'm guessing this can't be expected behaviour and it must be a loose connection or something?! Anyone else had similar issues before I take it apart and potentially do more harm than good? Thanks
  3. I have a Sage Barista Express, (Iv'e had multiple,) and after approx 6 months the Brew/Steam/Water selector stops working / jams , and Steam / water will exit the brewed regardless of position. Iv'e had multiple Sage Engineers (Coffee classic ) out, and luckilly lakeland have also been good in exchanging the faulty machines. I clean the machine weekly with cleaning tablets / descaler. Is this an issue that anyone else has experienced ? is it a problem with the design of the valve / switch. ? This is the 5th time now, and I've confidence in the machine. I'm guessing the Du
  4. Brewista scales espresso mode mess?? Espresso wise, what is it that some Brewista users are doing that results in the scales getting a soaking which often, by all accounts, is terminal?? Firstly can I say that I’ve had my Brewista scales since launch and thus far they have been absolutely trouble free. Ok, I only make 3 to 4 espressos per day but even so the original batteries still going strong. I use Auto mode 2 so the current routine is..... With scales on counter……..switch on, auto tare the PF, weigh the dose, switch off Transfer scales to drip tray then…. switch on,
  5. Hi. I'm having some issues adjusting the pressure on my gaggia classic. I bought a pressure guage from ebay. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/161207194396?_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT I have attached this, followed a step by step guide from this forum, and the pressure guage just seems to go off the scale. Ive screwed the OPV right out and even then the pressure still wants to jump off the scale. anyone any ideas on why this may be? Thanks.
  6. Hi guys Could do with a bit of advice please. I'm using an regular Gaggia Classic, around 10 years old. Yesterday, after making a white coffee, I ran a dose of water through the group head into a cup to cool it down and make my next coffee. The water, however, didn't really gush out like a hot thing coming out of Hotsville. I waited for the light, then ran another cup of water. All I can say, is it feels less powerful, and it's a different noise than it was yesterday, it's quieter now. The water seems to come out of the shower screen, in steady streams, but not sprayed out.
  7. Hi, Ive ran into an issue with my classic. Long story short....I was checking pump mount as it was really loud. turned the pump slightly and tried it on, didnt realise the vibrating shook the earth wire and it touched onto the steam thermostat (thermostat on top of the boiler) and tripped the fuse. I presumed I blew the thermostat so ordered a replacement, fitted it tonight and the boiler didnt seem to shut off, just kept heating. I was looking at the wiring diagram attached and from my understanding, the steam thermostat would only be used if the steam switch was operated.
  8. Hi everyone, I recently helped a friend of mine set up the first coffee shop in Liberia, West Africa. In September last year I brought out a new Fracino Little Gem (needed to be hand fill, use a normal power supply, low frequency etc). Unfortunately, it has stopped working, and being in Liberia, there are no espresso machine technicians within a thousand miles, so it's up to me to try and get it going again! The machine turns on. If I turn on the switch as if to pour a shot, the vibration pump goes on and water comes out of the group head. However, the water is cold, and according to
