    do you mean - brew CLR, then brew vinegar, then brew water? Not sure what you mean by "CLR rinse" as this is an espresso machine with a sealed tank.

"francis francis" x1 blocked - Fix Suggestions?


You can tell if the pump is working by the noise it makes. Mine got blocked with scale and I took it apart and cleaned out the boiler. It's possible; the boiler is bolted together with standard bolts (metric size). If you've got the interest the Francis Francis is easy to service; you will find a way into each part of it and clean it, and if you do it will work like new.

My Francis Francis x1 wont heat


You should check the temperature of the water coming out from the machine when it show that is heated. If it is lower than 90 C then the thermostat inside the machine attached to the boiler is need to be replaced. If the temperature of the water is about 90C then the problem is with thermometer, and in this case is only an accesorie since the machine can faction properly and make a good espresso.

My francis francis x1 has started running very slowly, it takes about 2x longer for the shot to finish coming out than it used to.


Hi
You might need a new pump or relief valve on the pressure end of the pump. There is a hose the goes back to the water tank in the back from the relief valve. See if water is going back into the tank when you are brewing?
