We Had The Same Malfunction 8 Problem And It Came Down To A Swolen O-Ring In The Brewing Piston, We Replaced The O-Ring With One Slightly Smaller That Still Sealed The Compartment And Our Problem Was Solved, Hope This Helps Others.

SOURCE: franke saphira malfunction 8 help

Malfunction 8 on the Saphira is a fault in the brewing head region. We have two of these machines, the first time I saw the malfunction 8 message it was a brewing head problem, fairly straightforward to change but I believe they are quite pricey. Worth a strip down and a wash out as they can bind with coffee grounds. The second occasion it turned out to be a problem with the motor that drives the brewing head. It is a fairly small dc motor with a worm drive plastic gear, it has a micro switch mounted on it to measure the movement of the brew head assembly. On this machine the gear had stripped, so the brew head wasn't being moved, and that generated the malfunction 8 code again. Fairly simple to change, but no idea on the price of the part, but unlikely to be cheap. Also it is unlikely that the gear itself can be changed as the motor is held in a plastic assembly which will almost certainly self destruct when opening it no matter how careful you are. Incidentally, both of these machines have done over 50,000 coffees, which is probably way more than they are designed for.

there is no reset switch, please wait on the display indicates the machine is heating . but the sensors are not registering the temp. this means either the thermoblock/s have failed (unlikely) there are upto 4 thermal fuses mounted on the thermoblocks . this is more likely the problem. any more info required please et me know

My franke flair coffee machine will not power up

the two main reasons for this are the on off switch located on the back of the machine is switched off. the other is the flap to the grinders is not correctly fitted. other than this an exporative visit by an engineer may be required. there are two mains fuses situated by the cable inlet behind the rear panel.

Got a malfunction 4 on a franke flair ? Any ideas

Hi.I think its a temperature measuring fault in the steam circuit. Most likely to be the thermal sensor on the thermoblock. Check to see if the sensor wires are broken or corroded. Can also be the control board. I'll put my money on the thermal sensor. Dazza REPAIRER

I have just bought a Franke Flair coffee machine second hand. It looks like new and the seller said it was in good working order - however it does not have the grinder blocker and I think we need one. I wouldn't mind also getting the once over from an expert and then maybe some kind of ongoing contact should we have problems with it. What are your rates?
