Have only worked on the X1. I don't think you will find service instructions. But if you look around carefully you should be able to find other screws which hold the machine together, and then the top will come off.

SOURCE: Hi I have francis francis x3 espresso coffee

Hi
You probably have a burnt out element, but there are other things that could be wrong.

  • Bad board
  • Bad thermostat
  • Bad wire to the element
There are 4 allen screw on the top outside of the machine. Make sure that it is unplugged. There is a hole in the back that you can insert a long screw driver and push up on the top. I don't recommend this if you are not handy.

If you have an X3 Trio you are out of luck.
If you have the older model, you can buy 'ground coffee conversion kits' or you can use a ground coffee portafilter from an Ascaso Dream/Arc etc.

SOURCE: my francis francis x3 does not heat the water

Does the bottom light come on? The light is connected across the heating element and so if it is on the heating element is getting power. From looking at mine it looks like the bottom button for steam power bypasses the thermostat and uses the pressure switch to shut off the heating element. So if the light comes on when you press the steam switch but off when it isn't it is most likely your thermostat causing problems, if it never lights it is most likely the pressure switch. I do not claim to be an expert on the machine but from looking at mine that is what i would expect.
