    Last week all of a sudden there was no water coming through the group head, of my Linea Mini, I tried to pull a shot but nothing 😞 After reading around, I ordered a new gicleur. Yesterday I followed the instructions here...

    My one month old Rocket Appartamento has developed an odd problem today. Usually, when I switch my Appartamento on, it will take a maximum of 26-30 minutes to reach a good stable temperature in the grouphead, as measured by an E61 grouphead thermometer I installed after I purchased the machine...

    After having plenty of fun removing the bolts and separating the unit I can see, what appears to be, moderate flaking of the internal chrome layer - is this normal? Below is a pic of when I first opened the unit and a few examples of stubborn limescale which I later attacked with the green end...

    Hi all Newbie here, but this forum is a great help! I recently purchased a used Gaggia Classic from 2004. Unfortunately it wasn't in the best condition, so I completely descaled it, took the shower plate and screen off etc. All was working fine for a few weeks, then it started leaking from...
  5. Sage Forum
    Hi All Has anybody experienced water finding its way out the top of the group head when pulling a shot? i have raised this with Sage support and sent them a video of it happening. After analysing the video sage support said i had a faulty machine and offered a replacement as my machine was...

    Afternoon all Unfortunately my coffee machine has chosen the worst time to breakdown - when I am working from home! I've had my Rocket R60 for just over 3 years and it has performed really well. I have not taken the best care of it (my cleaning routine is a little haphazard) but it has been...

    Hi everyone, I'm just curious, what is the purpose of the screw on top of the grouphead? Could it be used to monitor temperature, or maybe pressure? Temperature is already assessed/managed by MeCoffee, I wouldn't go as far as monitoring the delta with groupehead temperature. On the other...

    Hi All, I flick the steam switch and Mr Shades PID shows the boiler reaching 147 degrees and then fluctuating to like 139 and back up again.. not sure if that's relevant.. But anyway, steam comes out of the brewhead while the steam is switched on and im pretty sure that's new. Only had it a...

    Hi all, I have a spare grouphead that's redundant to my needs. Good working condition. £15 plus postage.

    Brand new, only tried it out once to find it didn't fit my grouphead (Sage Dual Boiler). The page did warn it didn't fit the Oracle and I thought I'd risk it to see if it fitted the DB which clearly it didn't. So, it's all assembled to save you the hassle, mint condition with original box and...

    Hey all, just wondered if anyone could recommend a lubricant or a retailer who sells grease that is suitable for a group head gasket replacement? my usual supplier is out of stock and I am doing my quarterly service in the coming weeks. Thanks!

    I have owned my V3 for a couple of weeks now and have noticed that when I am steaming milk, water is dripping from the group head? Is this the seal that needs replacing? It doesn't seem to do it any other time?

    Having searched and searched it looks as if nobody has had this problem. I recently disassembled the lever mechanism on the E16 group head for cleaning and lubricating (was getting a little stiff and squeaky). The machine is less than a year old so all components were actually fine. But upon...

    When I make a milk based drink, I tend to steam the milk first and then make the espresso. I don't like the coffee standing for too long. After I have finished steaming and turned off the steam button, if I press the hot water button, steam comes screaming out of the group head for a few seconds...

    I couldn't change the gasket so took it to a local catering equipment maintenance company. They managed to replace it. I tried everything. Just wouldn't budge. i cannot back flush as the group heat gets stuck and hot water only comes out of two of the four holes. Whilst I'm looking to get an...
  16. Expobar Forum
    Hiya I've owned an Exposer Office Leva HX since xmas and now not sure how I'd survive without it! A problem has appeared the last week. Previously when pulling a shot, pressure always remained at around 9 bar with plenty of run-off coming out of the OPV. Recently brew group pressure has...

    For anyone with a Cremina, if you don't know it already, here's an interesting thread: http://www.home-barista.com/levers/olympia-cremina-temperature-study-part-1-t19388.html [there's 4 parts I think] So the question is, what grouphead temps do you normally aim for? T.

    Hi all sorry if this has been asked before, my beautiful silvia v3 is just starting to show her age ! Is it possible to buy a replacement for the group head cover as the chrome effect on the plastic group head cover is coming off.. i really want her looking perfect again..can you buy a...

    I have a 9 year old gaggia classic at home, I bought it faulty (thermostat replacement), but the bigger concern is how mistreated she had been. When I bought her in August I stripped down the grouphead and gave it a good clean. I only make one or two drinks a day, so since owning her I have...

    Due to the postage charges of sourcing these from Europe, it may be more economical to place a bulk order for these baskets so we can split the postage charge... Just a quick thought, they are shiny goodness... also, who would like to do it =P
