Question about Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines

Open Question

I lost my brew head screw that holds the screen on. I cannot locate it at a hardware store. Can anyone tell the size so can find or order another one? I called Saeco and they don't have it list

This is the screw that is removed when the machine is cleaned and descaled. It is called the brew head screw in the instructions.

SOURCE: how to descale Saeco Spidem Villa

Hi
Don't use vinegar. Its only 5% acid at full strength and if you mix it with water a lot less. It also leaves an after taste for about 2 weeks. Use descaling powder or other products especially made for espresso machines.
Remember, it is better to descale more often than not enough.
1. To decalcify your boiler, remove your water tank and fill it with hot water (100 to 120 degrees). Open a pack of decalcifier and mix into the water tank. Once it is dissolved, place the tank back on the machine, and then turn the machine on.
2. If you just open the steam knob and run approximately eight ounces of solution into a spare container. Turn the machine off and let set about 10 to 15 minutes. Longer is better. It is very important that the machine does not remain on to heat the boiler anymore than necessary.
3. Repeat step #2 for your machine. Do this until you have consumed the entire water tank of solution (approximately four to five cycles). (I do it at night before I go to bed and let the last cycle set in the boiler till morning.)
4. Remove water tank and rinse it with fresh water.
5. Refill water tank with fresh water and place it back on the machine.
Repeat step #2 to rinse the machine, only this time use the entire water tank at one time, and there is no need to let it set.

Try adjusting the grind four numbers coarser and brew a coffee, if you are getting the same result then the brew unit is clogged and the screen needs to be cleaned.

Hi
In the menu there is a program below the descaling program that says Reset descale. Enter this program and choose "yes", and make sure that you push the enter button to lock your answer. If you don't it will still be there.
Also go to your water hardness and move it to the #4. This will prevent you from having to replace the boiler sooner than needed. Descale when told to by the machine.

That is serious, that means the grinder is jammed or not working. To check the components of the machine follow these instructions.
Press and hold the steam button and turn on the machine, when you see the lights going around in anticlockwise direction, release the button. Turn the coffee dial to the left and press the steam button, the grinder should turn. Dial on the right and pressing coffee ****. water pump runs. Press steam ****. brew group go up, dial 1/4 to left B/Group down.
If grinder not turning the motor is bad. Hope it will help to find out.

Hi
Auto descale: To automatically descale your machine, press the scoop button and hold it down until you enter the menu. Use the arrows on the left to scroll down until you come to "Descale". Press enter and the machine will enter the mode to descale your machine. The process takes about 45 minutes. You don't have to do a thing except mix a full water tank with descaling solution and have a container under the steam wand when your start. If you have a cappuccinonatori on your machine you will need two containers. To start the descaling process simply turn the steam knob. When the process is over your machine will say "descale finished". Remove your water tank and rinse it out. Refill it with fresh water. Replace on the machine and close the steam knob then open it again to rinse your machine. When its done exit the descale mode and go to the "Reset descale" just under it and enter. Choose "Yes" and push the enter button to accept. It will tell you when it needs to be descaled again.
If you want to make your machine last a long time, go to the water hardness in the menu and change your water hardness to the #4 and always push the enter button if you want to make your changes permanent. If you don't, no changes will be made and it will still be the same when you exit.

I lost the 3 screws to hold the base to the tv


In the instructions for the TV when new, there is a description on how to fit the base which tells you the screw size and length. If you have not got this I suggest going the Sony's website and down load the instruction. Putting too long screws in can seriously damage your TV !

Baby gaggia no water flow for espresso


I helped my father to fix two of these machines that had this problem. He never uses the steam, only making crema coffee all day long, every day.

It is not easy to fix, but its not complicated either. If there is no water flow from the brew group, but still steam, that means the brew group has gotten clogged with Calcium.

When you take it apart you will be amazed.

You will need a very short and fat Philips head screw driver.

Like this:

http://www.amazon.com/Short-Stubby-Screwdriver-2-piece-Set/dp/B001CWHUDA

or similar. Any hardware store will have it. 1st step is to turn the machine on its side on a soft surface to protect from scratches.

Remove the brew head and look in the brew group where you prob. haven't looked before. You will see a screen with a Phillips head screw in the middle. You need the screw driver to remove that screw. It is like almost melted in from the high heat so you need a Phillips with a fat head so as to not strip it, and a thick handle to apply a lot of torque. And you will need a bit of strength.

If you make it past this just hit me back and I'll tell you more. Or hit me if you have any other questions about this step, or at all. Believe it or not, there is more stuff past the screen.

Hi - we lost the screws to fix our sony bravia kdl-32v4000 to the table top stand in a move - can you tell me where I can get the 3 screws needed - thanks


I am guessing the screw size is M6/16mm , based on Sony official page for your TV:
http://www.sony.co.uk/product/tv-80-32-lcd/kdl-32v4000/technical-specifications#tab

Lowes or Home Depot or Ace Hardware (I prefer the latter for more knowledgeable employees). If no hardware stores nearby, try Sears or Best Buy (you may need to ask more than one person, don't give up too easily). If visiting a hardware store, you may have to look in the 'roofing' screw bins or nearby to find the right size.

You might also look for TV mounting kits that have that size screw, but you'd probably pay much more than finding the screws alone at a hardware store.

Graco pack play


Hi Carol, remove the fastener from the opposite side of the one that is missing and take it to a Home Depot or Lowes in your neighborhood. Some well stocked hardware stores may also be able to help. They have both metric and standard threaded screws and bolts and I believe the Graco uses metric. They have boards in the hardware department that should tell you which type you need.

It doesn't usually need to look the same to do the job but if they have nothing to help you out, you will at least know if it's standard (for example 10/24 x 1" which means the screw or bolt is size 10 with 24 threads per inch by 1 inch long) or metric (M5 x 0.8 x 1" which is the metric size closest to a 10/24 x 1") and the type of head, hex or bolt head or a screw driver head, Phillips or flat-bladed.

Armed with that information you'll be able to locate the exact replacement from hardware providers on the internet.

(If the head is unusual, take a picture)

Hope this helps,

I pulled the brewing unit apart to give a thorough clean and im left with alittle plastic ball can you please tell me where it goes my coffee is very watery at the moment so im assuming this ball restricts...


Hi
Read carefully, your answer is towards the bottom.
You have a plugged brew head or bent gate valve. I can help with the brew head but not the gate valve.
Remove the brew unit. Holding the handle, the top left side is the brew head. There is an outlet pipe that is either to the front or back. 2 screws hold it to the top. Remove the 2 screws while holding the manifold ( pipe assembly). Once they are removed, lift the assembly off (be careful, there is an O-ring, spring and at the end, and a black rubber disk or ball that you can loose.
Now remove the brew screen, by holding the screen with your finger and twisting the thumbscrew (remember, thumbscrew), DON'T use the key to install the screen, use your fingers.
Once the screen is out look at where the screen was. There are 2 holes. A big one in the center and a small one to the side.
With the brew unit upside down over the towel, insert a paperclip into the small hole and force anything out the other side. I have gotten worms almost a 1" long from this passage. The paper clip has to go from this side to prevent damage to the seat on the other side.
Clean then reassemble. Brew unit on towel right side up. Drop the ball in first. Then the spring, small end first on the ball.
Now the O-ring over the spring, then place the manifold on top of that with the pipe towards the direction it came off. Insert your screws (I turn them backwards a little with a little downward pressure until they feel like they drop into the threads. They should turn down easily, if not back them up a little more ( we are trying to find the old threads) and tighten. Install screen, and tighten with your fingers. The screen just needs to be flush with the bottom of the brew head. That should do it.

Security torx screws


Go to a local hardware store, and ask them for a TORX screwdriver set.  The screws come in a large variety of sizes, and buying a set is the best way.  Make sure that at the base of the driver head it has a small hole for the security nib the screws have that prevents most ordinary screwdrivers from oppening them.

Screws missing on F707 body


Without looking at the back of my 707, I would say your best bet would be a watch repairer. Your local jeweler does not repair watches but sends them out: find out where they send them. Usually located in some jewelry center.
