Yes, you can. You can surf the net for the spares, if you the parts manual and the e-mail address of your
Solis coffee maker manufacturer. Otherwise, you inquire from the store where you buy. They knew it
well as part of their after sales service.

The handle is coming apart. It does not fit tight enough & sometimes falls while the coffee is brewing. Where can I purchase a new one to fit my Solis SL 70 machine purchased late in 2004.


HI
If the portafilter is coming out when brewing your brew head gasket needs to be replaced. If you have never replaced your brew head gasket its way beyond time. They should last about 3-4 years at the most. With a good brew head gasket the portafilter should be easy to lock in, not requireing a lot of pressure to force it over. Try replaceing the gasket first before you invest in a new portafilter. If you really need one I have some and the gaskets.

Hi, I have a Solis Crema SL70 and have had water drip from underneath the machine. I then turned the machine upside down to have a look when a spring/clip fell out that looks like a butterfly of sorts....


HI Remove the water tank. On the back of the machine between the intake port for the tank and outside are 2 disks. Stick a pin in the outside edge of the disk and pry them out. There is a screw under neath. Remove the screws. You hose connection has come loose. Put the spring clip or use a zip tie and reattach the hose to the filter. Now replace the back and screws. You don't have to put the disks back in if you don't want to.

Trying to relpace the on/off switch on my solis crema sl70. I have the machine apart, but can not get the switch out of the face plate. Anyone kn ow the secret?


Hi The foil on the front has to peel back until the switch will push out the front. Peel from a corner. Make sure that the switch goes back in the same way.

I have a solis crema sl-70 whose portafilter leaks and actually flies off if I don't hold it in place as I pull a shot. Is this is small repair problem, or should I replace my machine?


You may just need a new grouphead gasket. This is a rubber ring that fits in the space between the outside of the grouphead and the interior area that houses the dispersion screen. If it's worn or dried out, the pf may not be sealing properly (which would cause the leaking and instability)
The portafilter (pf) handle should line up with a pre-printed indicator line on the group head when it's "locked" in. If you're looking at the machine straight on, and the far side is "12" on a clock face, the handle should be at 6 or 5 o' clock. The pf should "ease" in to the grouphead, not stop with a hard feeling.
The problem might be with the portafilter "ears", or the metal tines that wedge into the grouphead. If they're excessively worn, the pf might not be secured snugly enough to make a seal. A new pf will solve this.
So, first, try a new gasket. Then a new portafilter. Then a new machine :)

Turn the foam knob, nothing happens most of the time. If I leave it open, it will pizzle and fizzle warm, low pressure air that takes 7 minutes to warm milk to 160 degrees. Bah! I miss my lattes!!!


Hi
That sounds like your Steam thermostat needs to be replaced. There are 4 thermostats on the SL70. The rear one is your brew thermostat (92c), the one in the front is your steam thermostat (117c). The one in the center is over temp thermostat, (136c) and it screws in to hold the other thermostats in place with a thermal fuse held also. You need the 117c thermostat and maybe the 136c also. You will also need an new O-ring for the steam wand.

Water leak between tank and main unit


Hi
If it is leaking on top of the machine and under the water tank, there is a seal that needs to be replaced. Lift off the water tank. There is a large gray doughnut cap that will pop off. Take a screw driver and slip it under the outside of the cap between the machines top and pry gently up and it will pop that side. Go to the other side and do the same. Set the cap aside and take you index finger and stick it in the center of the black gasket. Lift up and if the gasket comes out with it you need to replace it. Clean the inside of the receptacle before installing the new gasket.
Once you get the new gasket, slip it at a slight angle(flat side up), then take your finger nail and run it around the outside edge of the gasket. It will slip in, then push it down. Take the cover and snap it into place. Your good to go.
