All perishable parts have been replaced for brand new regardless of original condition and any parts which were starting to fail have been replaced with brand new! The overall result is a machine in top working condition ready to give years of quality service producing excellent drinks! So the machine was stripped down to its bare frame and steam cleaned. All the pipe work on the machine was deassembled and descaled in our specially formulated solution.
The group heads, boiler and all the valves have also been fully descaled, rinsed and cleaned before being reassembled. The boilers heating element has also been completely descaled and is in top working condition. Limescale is the arch enemy of all espresso machines. It generally builds up within a machines boiler and pipework so it is very hard to detect unless you can get a good look inside.
Some tell tale signs of bad scale are white'furring' around the joints amd if the machine is generally running slow. Water should flow freely from the grouphead at a good rate, and the machine should heat up quickly.
You should also have good quality'dry' steam from teh steam wands, if you are not getting all of this then the machine you are looking at could well have limescale inside. A machine with bad scale damage will run slowly, run less efficient and produce poor espresso. It will also be dangerous as the scale can cause important safety features to stop working properly! So that is the reason that ALL of my machines are completely descaled, regardless of what condition they are in when they come in. But rest assured this machine has been done properly and is working perfectly as the video shows.
During reassembly all the the parts have been put back together using all brand new O rings, seals, rubber gaskets, filters etc etc. Basically anything that wears and shold be periodically changed has been replaced for brand new!The machine is working perfectly, produces excellent espresso and is completely leak free! It heats up quickly, recovers quickly and runs very efficiently. It is safe and ready to use. The group head has been rebuilt with all new seals and gaskets. It runs really nicely and the water flows from it evenly and freely.
The steam wand valve and hot water valve have been replaced with all new seals and gaskets and are working perfectly, opening and shutting off easily. The machine is really simple to operate and uses a rocker switch to start and stop the extraction process.There are no fancy touchpads or control boards to fail which makes this an easy and simple machine to maintain and look after. The machine is aimed at someone with limited space but still wants the benefit of a high quality, commercial grade espresso machine, which will be capable of producing about 60 cups per day. The machine has been fitted with a brand new vibratory pump as the old one was starting to fail and become unreliable.
This is a part that will ideally want to be changed in about 3 to 4 years time. If the worst was to happen and something fail, then parts for these machines are very readily available and very competetively priced. There are thousands of these machines in circulation throughout the UK, and this is mainly because of there reliability and durability. All the machines panels can be taken off in less than a minute allowing an engieer or yourself to quickly locate all parts.
Fracino are a well renowned British company, and are UK based - Birimingham to be exact. This means parts for the Fracino are so easy to get hold of and very fairly priced. It is a very simple machine to use.
There is nothing over complicated about it. Alot of machines these days have more features than a top of the range car, where as this machine concentrates on doing its main job properly which is making excellent quality consistant espresso.
The steam power on this machine is fantastic. It will happily steam away all day. The hot water spout works in the exact same way as the steam wand, the valve has also been completley stripped and rebuilt with all new seals etc. The hot water comes directly from the boiler and is perfect for making tea, americano coffee, hot chocolate etc.The machine only requires an everyday 13amp electric socket so there is no fancy three phase or anything like that to worry about. It will require connecting to a mains water connection (same as your washing machine at home) and it comes with all the necessary fittings to get it quickly connected. If it is looked after and serviced regular then it will go on working perfectly for many years to come.
Parts for these machine are very easily to come across and readily available. If you are local to me I can contine to maintain and service this machine for you. The group head is in great clean condition, and has been fitted with all brand new seals, gaskets, O rings, filters and shower screen. The panels on this machine are in very good condition.
There is small scratches and blemishes here and there but overall I would rate it is very good. The pictures speak for themselves and are a true reflection of the machines condition. I would love you to come and inspect the machine, have a play with it and make sure that it what you are looking for. I can give you full training if you are new to espresso machines, I can show you how to use and clean the machine, and how to create different drinks.I don't delve into other commercial catering equipment, I specialise in coffee machines. You are welcome to view the machine anytime at my workshop which is located in between Leeds and Doncaster, postcode is DN14 0RX. The machine will be wrapped properly and get to you safely. The machine is of course open for you to collect youself, infact I would prefer this as it gives me an opportunity to demonstrate the machine to you and run through any questions you may have, however I fully appreciate this isnt always possible for people who are living at the other end of the country. If you are completley new to espresso machines i have absolutely no problems at all in giving you full training on the machine.
I can show you how to make espresso, latte and cappuccino. I will be able to show you how to correctly foam the milk and also how to correctly clean and maintain the machine. Thank you so much for taking the time to read through this listing, I hope I havent bored you too much.
