    Hey all, Ive had a good look around and was going to do a basic service on the V. Also, wanting to change the pressure relief valve as it partially stuck the other day. It self resolved but its not the sort of thing I want to keep happening. So, where do we get spare parts, as im struggling to...

    I provide below a description of the process I went through to solve the problem of a ruptured brew boiler heating element on my Vesuvius. I'd had the Vesuvius for maybe 2 months when I started to notice the brew water had become very cloudy. When I was sure the water was actually always...

    Hi All I bought a second hand mazzer SJ from this forum, which was already bought second hand. Bought in may 2015 and as I use it at home, it sees little use (2 coffees a day MAX, normally just one). My question is whether I need to replace the burrs. I think its close to the lowest setting...

    The magnetically attached cup on my Kinu M47 would sometimes fall off in the middle of a grind when grinding light beans. It didn't always happen but it did happen enough that I was getting paranoid every time the cup would chatter during a grind. I think I even made it fall out once just from...

    Hello - new user here. Does anyone happen to know the technical specs for the replacement seals etc for la pavoni groups, steamer and so on? The prices charged by the official suppliers for a few rubber seals and brass washers seem pretty outrageous (north of £30) so I was wondering if it were...

    Hi guys, I've often wondered how to tell when the burrs in my Rocky are wearing out or need replacing? Any tips / things to look out for?

    My Silvia is six months old. On average only about 10 espresso per week. I do clean the seal after each brew with a brush but when is the seal due to be replaced?

    So.. I've been debating whether to get new set of burrs for my F5 (SJ ones fit apparently!) and wanted to get some advise on how to assess when this is recommended, knowing that I'd need to put several kg through new set to season them.. When I got the grinder I checked and the set Im using now...

    Hi all, I've been looking around here for a little while, but this is my first post... I recently lost my old faithful Saeco Magic Cappuccino coffee machine, and am now in need of a new replacement. However I have no idea where to start as there seem to be so many machines available at the...

    Hi all Just ran the Gaggia descaling fluid through my classic, as my routine cleaning schedule. I happen to notice that the 'longer' tube that hangs down into the water reservoir has some slight discolouration inside it, toward the top (above the usual water level), before going up into the...

    Well whilst chatting and resetting (to make sure I was on) my little Porlex Mini I over tightened it and just cracked the bottom ceramic piece lol....... What a tw**!!!! Ah well that leaves me using the metal bladed grinder attachment on our blender. Not good! Can't see me finding the part in...

    It about time to renew my Versalab flat burrs. In the past I've ordered the replacements direct from Versalab. I have read some other burrs are suitable for the M3. Versalab replacements would cost approx £110/£120 including postage & HM customs duty etc. In the past I have escaped import...

    Hi All, I've recently been having a mare with my Gaggia Classic only to find out that it was probably my porlex handgrinder that was the issue all along! I've lost the inner spring that sits directly above the burrs. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement? if not, can a porlex owner...

I was wondering about using one from a different manufacturer but Happy Donkey said it had to be a Briel one! Anyone know...

    Hi New to this forum (although not to decent coffee) Santa brought me a cuisenart bean to cup machine and over the intervening period an idiot guest managed to bin the filter basket. D'oh. Cuisenart have been no help and as far as I know the replacement is a GTF-2 but where do I get one...
