  1. I was given a gaggia classic many years ago and used it for several years without any descaling or servicing (I know, I'm an idiot). It eventually packed in. I put it in storage intending to get it repaired, and there it stayed for many more years. I've got it out and encouraged by forum posts suggesting DIY, I thought I'd see what I could do. But the problem is I don't know what is likely to be wrong with it, beyond being badly blocked up. It turns on ok, but when I press the button to run water through it I just get a faint electrical buzzing noise - not the loud sound of the pump runn
  2. I have decided to sell my Achille as spares, I don’t think there is a major issue so most parts should be in reasonable condition. Collection only for entire machine £100. Will probably break it up if somebody needs a couple of parts and possibly post. I have just patched wiring back together, will need a second look as LEDs not on but turns on and heats up etc , leaking from various areas probably just needs new o rings etc. I’m due a new machine so don’t really want to spend time fixing it!
  3. Now that I'm just outside my 2 yr warranty, my Sage DB is making a horrible long buzzing noise when I hit the brew buttons. It still works, but sounds like the switch is about to go. Anyone experienced this, and any advice where to take it to get it fixed? Any advice appreciated!
  4. Hi, happy new year fellow coffee lovers. Ive been a fan of the site for a while now but need some advice please. The problem is my beloved prima Donna ECAM 26.455M has finally stopped working. I regularly descale and clean but about a 6 months ago the milk frother stopped working, it seemed to be through a lack of steam/pressure but i just continued to use the steam wand. The wand did spit and steam on occasion when a espresso was being made but i just put up with it. Unfortunately it recently stopped even producing steam and has now got the empty circuit error code. Is it a fix
  5. Hi, my Delonghi ESAM 5400 empty tank light is appearing, I bought a new reed sensor for it but to no avail, I found out that putting a magnet ln the sensor itself makes the machine think that its full, I was just wondering how to descale feature works if it thinks its always full. Thanks in advance. Bought it second hand with the warning light.
  6. Hi all I finally decide to get an engineer out to service and repair my Cherub, which I bought new in January 2014. I contacted Francino to get an engineer out, I couldn't travel to Brum and stay with it. When I gave them the serial number they said it was 6 years old and they could only service it at the factory as it was so old. What the... How old is it any thoughts, is it worth repairing?
  7. well my luck only ever lasts so long it seems! after making a brew yesterday i pushed the steam wand back and "Clang!" the wand falls of, whipping the top off the machine i see whats happened, the adjustment screw/bolt that holds the arm onto the valve assembly had sheared of inside, somewhat disappointed i began searching the web for fiamma spares to little avail for such an old machine, there are plenty of parts for the post 2013 fiamma machines but almost nothing from before then. of course im hardly going to give up there so i went back to have another look and see what else i may be
  8. Just got my machine back after it was repaired by Espressotechno. Thanks Ian, not had a decent coffee since before Christmas, in a much happier place now. Can happily recommend Ian for any espresso repairs you may need.
  9. So I bought a used Fracino Picinno back in Feb this year. Love everything about it until about 2 weeks ago, I made a coffee that was undrinkable. Ruled out the group head water first, tried the steam wand and low end behold the water was discolored and it smelt very chemically. I've tried flushing the system through and eventually contacted fracino. It's suspected milk in the boiler and I'm looking at £275.00 shipped inc vat for a full service of the machine which is pretty crippling. So I guess my options - 1.) Consider the machine a write off and buy another machine for the value
  10. Hi All, Here we have a reliable Ascaso Basic (or "Pablo") that I have neglected for a while after getting a new machine. As you can see from the photos it powers on fine. Stored inside for a year without use and the gasket and unit around the shower screen needs replacing, as it has corroded and I can't force the screw holding the unit in place out. This is the grim bit and there's a closeup photo, seems to me it could be stripped back. Water pump, brass boiler etc all working but water just flows out from around the bottom of grouphead and portafilter when used. One o
  11. Hi, Does anyone know of a repair/servicing service in the North West, even better near Blackpool. I think I need the boiler replacing, it's a V3. Or if there are any good YouTube videos showing how it might be done. Many thanks Matt P.S. When did it change to needing 5 posts to access the For Sale page?
  12. Hi all, I have a minor issue with my Expobar and was wondering if anyone would care to recommend a mobile technician who covers south east London. TIA Greg
