  1. Hi Guys, Just bought a Mazzer Royal from one of the forum members ( Kostona ) and I appear to have an issue with the motor not turning. When I turn the switch I can here the contactor pull in, it hums but the motor does not kick into life. I have done a bit of reading on the other thread and I know there is a hooper interlock micro switch. I have removed the plate at the top the check the switch but its not connected. So this must have been linked out so it can be used without the hopper. Kostona used it a lens hood mod. I believe @coffeechap was the previous owner. The motor turns free
  2. High guys, I've had a few different beans now which don't seem to want to turn to espresso. Current ones are rave's El Salvador Finca El Carmen. Roasted 3 days ago so might be a little fresh but when I've encountered this before I've waited longer and the problem hasn't gone. Basically when pulling a shot the basket seems to plug with an oily substance and I have to abort. Changing grind/tamp doesn't seem to change anything. Any info on this would be helpful. Is it just the beans or something I might be doing? Cheers Sol
  3. My dads KG79 grinder is having problems and we are wondering if anyone knows how we could fix it? It has lost power in the first stage of grinding and takes a while to get enough power to grind coffee, even the light goes off after a second. I have uploaded a video with my KG79 for comparision. On the same setting the machines ground 14.6g (mine) and 9.4g (dads) of coffee. We took it apart to see if anything looked off and gave it a clean. He does not drink enough coffee to want a new grinder so a fixing it would be great. My first thought was maybe there is a problem with one of
  4. I came down this morning to a worktop covered in coffee grinds and couldnt work out why. Then I started to hear an odd noise when I was in the lounge. Turns out it was my E8 grinding on it's own. It was set to a .2 second grind time which I use to top up the basket. I switched the button to change it to my 4.5second grind time to see what that did. Turns out that resulted in even more coffee on the worktop. I assumed it was perhaps a temprental portafilter switched, but then it started beeping constantly at me with and without grinding. Clearly a gremlin in there som
  5. Newest of newbies here, seeking a little advice. Bought a second hand Rancilio Silvia (v2) a couple of months ago (on this forum) and been trying every since to get a consistent, decent double shot out of it, but with absolutely no success. I've temperature surfed, varied grind, varied dosage, even bought pre-ground, fresh coffee to eliminate the grinder as they issue. I could one on the fingers of one hand the number of really good shots that have come out, but repeating exactly the same dosing, grind (even from the same bag of pre-ground), tamp pressure and technique, portafilter,
  6. Having some issues when pouring. I seem to be getting a good microfoam in the milk with very few big bubbles. I start the pour high which dives under the creme and when the cup is half full I lower the jug to as near as possible. I'm finding that by the time I start to get a white blob in the middle my cup is full and I can't add any more milk. Anyone got got any hits and tips? Could it be I'm still putting too much air into the milk?
  7. Hello there dear forum member, I'm desperately looking for some help or advice with UPS delivery company. So here is what happened, on 12/5/15 I purchased Mazzer grinder on Ebay, which was located in London, but the woman who was selling it didnt want to post it, because she has a baby on her hands and what not. So i kindly offered her that I'll arrange a Currier to come and collect the package. So who do i call?? UPS, 1st thing that came to my mind, So i phone them and arrange the collection and delivery, give them all her details, the address and post code etc. and my details. So they
  8. Hi there first time posting so be kind! i have a 18 month v3 (twinned with a Gaggia MDF grinder) and after cleaning it the other day it now trips out my home power circuit! it had been on for a while (about an hour) and as soon as i went to pump some water through the group head to start the final flush through, pop, off goes the electric. (Home RCD had tripped) i tried to turn it on again but the same things happens. i disconnected it from the plug (safety first right) and I took the top off (4 screws on the top) to reveal the boiler, checked the thermo cut off which was not
