    FrancisFrancis! X1 about 2 years old; Thermostat only goes to 60 for brewing instead of 90 and 120 instead of 160

    I have the same problem as ethan.  The Thermastat reading does not go beyond 90 C.  Just happened a week ago.  I was able to make 4 espresso a day.  Temp doesn't raise high enough to even consider steaming.  Thanks for any help.

I had the francis francis examined.  It is indeed the boiler, a $200 fix if you could get the part.  Francis Francis X1 is now a brick!

Oh my...I too have this issue. While my X1 has been working perfectly for the last year, suddenly the thermostat has dropped to 40'C and 80'C respectively.

Where is the engine temprature switch in a 1998 jeep cherokee?

Hi there lewis3559! What i believe you are actually looking for is the engine temerature sensor. To locate the temperature sensor:
  1. Open Hood
  2. Locate the upper radiator hose
  3. Locate thermostat housing (the upper hose attaches to the housing)
  4. It is the 2 wire sensor next to the thermostat housing

If your ETS is not working properly the engines computer calculates the air/ fuel mix incorrectly resulting in poor fuel economy. It may also affect the temperature reading on your guage cluster.

I hope this helps you out, good luck!

I have a Vienna my question is temerature of hot watheroutlet and coffeeoutlet temperature i have about 70 degreds celsius is it okej?

The temperature varies according to the use if you just pure out hot water for fist time should be around 90 degrees however after one or two mugs can go up to 75 to 80. The same is for coffee. In any case the 70 degrees is low. Please note that I mention the temp. at exit point not in the cup since some seconds after the exctraction is normal to go at 70.

Have a Karcher steamer SC1002. The safety cap will not turn. Did not leave any water in it after I last used it. According to the instructions I needed to contact customer services but they were no help....

Dear friends,
I once solved a problem like this with a simple trick. The problem is that it should be done by a qulified tecnician. I will suggest this trick, but do not take responsability if unqualified persons try to do it. The trick is to fill the steamer again with water from some where else. Most probably the cover of the steamer has to be removed. Thou one can try to fill ot from the outlet. Now when there is water in the steamer, one must put it on, and let the temperature rise. When the temperature is at its normal reading, you just let it cool slowly. (leave as much water inside as possible). As it is cooling, you must try at intervals to unscrew the tap. If it is still very hot this is not possible(safety)....if it is too much cold, also not possible. So find the RIGHT and SAFE temperature. And the tap can be removed.
