Have a Francis Magic L'Espresso X1 76015.. While it still gets hot enough to make coffee, the thermosstate reads about 59, where it used to reach over 110. Any advice please?

Is the coffee good? It's most likely the thermostat. Inside the thermostat sensor is stuck into a hole in the boiler; if it gets detached the thermostat won't work but the coffee machine will. Mine hasn't worked for years but the coffee still tastes fine.

SOURCE: Steam Wand Broken

I soak the steamer tip in flat cola overnight to clean out milk deposits. Run water, not steam through it after that to rinse.
Sometimes I need to use a toothpick to lift off the softened deposits.

Perhaps the heating element is broken. Does it heat up at all? If not, the steamer won't work and there will be nothing for the gauge to register.

The gauge sound like it is the culprit. If the gauge is directly connected to the element also the fault could be drawing power from the heating function.
Simply replace the gauge and it will work correctly.

Hi! Im trying to find a manual for my 24FA... I was given a used 24FA and don't know how to use the metal filter strainers that came with it.


The filters are what you put the ground coffee in. They go into the thing with the handle which then bayonet fits twist and lock into the upper (not top) machine plate. Different sizes depending on whether you want a long or a short coffee. Here's a similar machine with pictures should help. I am singularly unimpressed with illy's website, but that's their problem. http://www.illy.com/wps/wcm/connect/dd00fdef-f4ba-44f1-b1e6-3092670b15ff/manuale+istruzioni+X1+macinato.pdf?MOD=AJPERES

Panel won't light on Saeco Magic Delux


Sounds like a board issue. It was something that happened on the Saeco Magic Deluxe's enough to be noticed. The board is not available for magic deluxe's with oval buttons.

I need a new immersion heating coil for a Francis Francis espressso maker. It's a Magic L'Espressso model 24FA. Made in EU 110-120V ~60Hz ~1100W


I found 4 possible substitutes for the Francis! Magic L'Espresso machine at http://www.1st-line.net. Part #01193035 is an Elektra that should make a good substitute or if you perfer an original replacement part call 1-877-854-4141 for Francis! replacement parts and service.

Francis francis x5-espresso splatters all over


1) The coffee you are using may not be ground finely enough to provide a proper extraction time, resulting in water rushing through the ground coffee much too quickly. Think of it like water running through a handful of pebbles as opposed to a handful of sand. You want "sandier" coffee.

2) Your gasket (the rubber part that seals the portafilter to the group head) may be worn/damaged and is leaking water when you are brewing. Attempt to contact FF! or Saeco to secure a replacement gasket. When you are not using the machine, don't tighten the portafilter all the way in to the head, either leave it completely disengaged or only loosely attached. This saves wear on the gasket.

3) Your brew water may be too hot. Purge your boiler right before brewing by running water into a bowl without the portafilter locked in. After a few seconds the superheated water will be run out and you're ready to brew.

I recentlty bought a Francis X1 (2000 model). I


There are two different handles made for this unit (I own an X1 and have both). Both of these handles have baskets.

First - The pod handle has a basket area that is very shallow, about 1/3 of an inch deep and the basket has very small holes.

Second - The handle for loose grounds came with two baskets, one for a single dose, and one for a double dose. Both removable baskets have the very small holes for the espresso to drip through.

You must have a basket in the handle in order to use the machine. If you try to make espresso without a basket, you'll just make a mess. Besides, the machine will never be able build enough pressure to extract espresso from the grounds.

Search the net (ebay?) for francis francis x1 handle.


Good luck
