Question about FrancisFrancis! X1 Espresso Machine
Hi, Does anyone know where to get a replacement pump for the X!? I mean other than going through Empire (who won't ship directly)? Is there another mfg who makes one that fits? I've taken apart the whole machine and cleaned it but it's still struggling to push the water through. I feel like it's the pump itself. Thanks in advance for the help.
The pump for the Kenwood ES-547 is the same one and is available form Kenwood here.
I know it's the same pump (part no. E, Type EP5) as I owned the Kenwood, then an X1 and now have an X2 which I have modified to take new brass boilers. Its very simple to fit but be careful when removing the pipes form the old pump as they can be very tight - I used a hair dryer to warm them 1st which helps a lot.
By the way, I called Empire to obtain spares and got a very unhelpful person telling me I'd have to send the macine to them - No thanks, would rather do it properly myself!
Hope this helps
