    I have these same problems, with the machine, fairfax and ascaso!
    I am still searching for a source of parts in the UK.
    Test the element for continuity to be sure it's not the thermostat.

Test the element for continuity to ensure that the problem is not with the thermostat. I have had the same experience with Fairfax and ascaso. I'm still searching for a parts supplier in the UK.

No water coming through coffee filter. I have descaled twice. You can hear the pump but no water and then it goes quite with no water. I have tried to prime the pump but still does not work. The steamer is...

If you open the steam tap while the pump is running does water come out? if so then you might have a blockage in the coffee solenoid or the bottom of the boiler. Do you hear a 'click' sound when you hit the coffee switch? If not the coffee solenoid may not be operating. The most common cause of the problem you are having though, is scale flaking off the boiler walls causing a blockage where the coffee water comes out. Try hiting the coffee switch, opening the steamer and then if water starts pumping out, close the steamer and see if water starts flowing out the coffee group. Do this without the portafilter (coffee holder) in place.
If you do get water flowing trough the group, try backwashing the machine.
If these things dont help then you should take it to an authorised repairer or open up the boiler yourself if you are a handy person and have access spare parts. Good luck, these machines can make a great espresso when in the right hands and working order.

Think Pump or boiler broken as water doesn't flow through

If you cannot get hot water from machine(brew unit or steam valve), then there is something wrong with boiler elements.
If water won't flow thru coffee(pump is not vibrating) and you've tried adjusting the grind to a coarser setting, then you will have to replace the pump($50).
However, since no water is going thru machine and it does not heat up then the problem might be the board or the inline fuse on the machine.

I have a Francis X1 Trio. Has anyone ever tried to use ground coffee and can it work. I hate the pods and would love to try to use regular ground with a tamper, but I'm afraid of ruining the machine.

You need a ground coffee adapter, these are available from various sites online. Do a web search for X1 ground coffee handle and you'll find one. Make sure it's the right one for your machine (check to see if you have the aluminium or brass boiler version)

Just found this site - It's in the UK and I'm not sure if you are but they will probably export to you.

Machine says warming up


How old is the machine?
Do you descale the machin regulary?

Calcium in the boiler makes this problem, don´t heat up the boiler.

Try to decalcify the machine, if it not will work after that then i think you have to replace the boiler.
