Turn off machine at night?

My husband insists on turning off our espresso machine at night at our coffee house, thus reducing our electric bill. Is this a good idea or not? It takes awhile to get the shot correct after that in the morning.

Thanks, Chris

Turning off an espresso machine at night is a bad idea. There are many gaskets and seal's that mate to different types of metal surfaces all of which contract and expand at different rates when hot or cold. If you keep doing this you will eventually break the seals.

My Keurig B40 has been working fine, no problems ( my husband thinks it's two years old). Last night, it was plugged in,however, no lights on, and doesn't work at all! Any suggestions? Or is it...


Hi,

The problem is often that the machine develops a leak in the hose that is rightover the transformer...the water drips onto the transformer and kills that...then you have no power to run the machine.

Here is a tip that I wrote about this problem...

I bought a machine from the US last week with 110V specifications and used a step down converter for use in Pakistan which has 220V specifications. When plugged in and turned on, there was a pop sound...


It sounds like something blew in a big way. Likely to be the main power supply board. The step down transformer should have reduced it to the 110 volts you require. Check the transformer to make sure it does actually reduce from 220 to 110 vac. Also check the hertz , (hz) ( cycles) Australia uses 50 hz at 240 volts ac. im unsure what hz USA or Pakistan is. Confirm your transformer output meets the electrical specification of the coffee machine. There may be a local Nespresso machine repairer who will convert yoru USA spec machine to Pakistan voltage thus negating the need for a transformer. It may be a bit expensive replacing all the electrical comonents though, it may still be worthwhile.

I have rancilio epoca e2. One side is not pulling a high enough temperature thus not good crema. Other side works fine


The only thing that comes to mind is the metering jet on the group as well as the reducers on the tubes bringing water into the group.

There used to be enough steam to froth milk for 2 cups of coffee, now I have to turn the knob off, to let the machine build up steam 3 times too get enough froth for 1 cup of coffee.


This a
clear problem from scale builds up in the boiler. The scale layer is acting as
an insulation layer which is reducing the efficiency of the heating element to
the boiler and also reducing the water capacity thus also the steam production
capacity.



So you
should first try to de-scale your machine three four times with intervals of
three days from each de-scale. Try also to perform the de-scale very slowly
like when you will flash the water solution from the water reservoir take about
30 minutes why drawing a coffee cup every five minutes. With this way you have
very good chance to remove a lot of scale and you machine heating efficiency to
be increased. If after the above procedure you have no difference then you need
a new boiler which is one unit with elements and sensor.



Here below we
have a link with more information for your machine which can help you.

Espresso comes out, but very, very slow !!! I cleaned it, descaled it and still takes forever for a cup of cofee to come out !!! Any suggestions??


First, check the grinder settings and coffee quantity. You may be using too much coffee and/or grind is too fine.

If that doesn't address your problem, you may have a bad water tank seal which allows air to enter the machine, thus reducing the water pressure. You may diagnose this at your own risk, by removing the right side cover and checking for the presence of air in the small plastic water filter located under the tank.

Coffee maker shuts off too quickly


It seems this coffeemaker insists on shutting itself off after 4 hours,
or whatever "auto-off" time you've programmed in. The only work-around I've found is to switch it to "Brew" and cycle the power switch off and on every time you pour a cup. That will start a new
4-hour timer cycle. Since the pot's still hot, it will go quickly to the
"brewing done" state and render 5 beeps.

Get Coffee/Espresso but no more steam/hotwater from frother


There seems to be a leak in the line somewhere you should not use the machine or at least the frother until you get it checked out as it will blow the rest of the machines electrics and maybe kill you. if you move it and look under the machine you may find water this will confirm my suspicions. but there is definitely a leak in that line...
