Hi, I purchased a Rancillo Rocky on here about 2 years ago. It has served me well up until now. Now I can’t get an espresso grind below level 11 or so. I have cleaned out the machine twice since this issue first arose. I think the last 2 batches of grindz grinder cleaner messed it up. I managed to recalibrate as best I could, but couldn’t get the zero point at zero any more. I was helped by a forum member on here twice, who done a FaceTime with me to clean out the machine. The burrs look just fine, I can’t figure out what the issue is. Think the grinder may need a look at. Would anyone be around South London by any chance? I can compensate somehow, to come over and have a look. Would save me spending any more money on another grinder. I use this with a 2016 Rancillo Silvia, after 6 seconds on level 11 or so it starts to come out, the speed varies. I was using subscription beans from coffee tasting club, and got some from another source which was freshly roasted within the week, made no difference to the speed, looking to have this dealt with ASAP. Cheers Garry
I want to keep this short and simple. I have an issue with my grinder. The Rancillo Rocky. I cleaned it out using Grindz and afterwards when I went to grind some beans they just went through the hole and nothing came out. Before I think my zero point was zero. But after I took it apart to clean the inside (cutting myself in the process) I no longer know what it is. I was using a 5 with fairly fresh beans and that was perfect. Now it is like tobacco. Would anybody be able to calibrate the grinder if I sent it to them? I dont have the time or the patience to try and fix the settings. I did try but I dont want to chop my finger/hand off. Let me know obviously you would have a price but I wasnt looking to spend too much otherwise ill just have to bite the bullet and try myself. Regards Garry
Hi all, Up for sale is my Gaggia classic. This is the 2006 Italian model 1300W. I purchased this about 6 months ago second hand and immediately stripped, serviced and rebuilt it. It comes with the rancillo wand, one double basket (could do with replacing) portafilter (has end cap missing) When I stripped the machine I completely cleaned the boiler, replaced all seals, replaced both boiler and water thermostats, replaced the shower plate for a brass one, as well as the shower screen. I also set the pressure at 9bar using the pressure gauge from the group. Everything works as it should. I've literally only pulled about 10 shots from it since doing the service. Unfortunately I just don't have the time to use it daily so felt like it deserved a new home. Cosmetically it is in great shape for its age. It does have a slight leak from the wand but I'm sure this could be easily rectified. It comes with the original box. All in all, this is a great machine with many more years to offer since being fully serviced. I am happy to post or it can be collected from Suffolk. Postage method and cost can be discussed. £85 + postage
