Question about FrancisFrancis! X1 Espresso Machine
I have a second hand francis francis X1 expresso machine which seems to leak. Water leaks from around the brewhead when using the single expresso holder but not the double, and worst of all, water comes out of the steamer when steaming milk. I'm left with watery milk which won't thicken, and bubbles on top. Are these serious problems? I would be very grateful for any ideas on how to solve them, especially the steamer problem? Many thanks!
For the grouphead check the basket there might be a slight bump around the edge that is preventing it from making a good seal when it contacts the gasket in the head. If the Double works fine then the gasket is not the problem.
For the steam wand try flushing wand for 3 seconds just before steaming, if that does not help with the watery milk, then the boiler is not getting hot enough to produce steam.
