Francis! Francis! X1 problems

We bought a Francis! Francis! 6-7 years ago and have never had a problem with it. Now, however we are thinking the pump may be going bad and don't know what to do. The pump definitely seems to be louder and when using a double portafilter, one side pours while the other side only drips. Also, it is not warming up as quickly. Today the pump light was blinking intermittenly and I couldn't get the temp. above 90 degrees.

SOURCE: francis francis X1---the steam nozzles won't work,

HI Unscrew the chrome tip from the wand. Then check the wand tube for a plug. Insert a paper clip into the wand tip to see if there is a restriction.

"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.

Hi
There are 4 nuts that hold the chrome head on. They are either 7mm or 8mm nuts. Loosen then and the head should twist out.

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!

Francis Francis! x1 leaking


Well, to state the obvious, you should call Francis! Francis! at 1-877-854-4141 and ship it to them for repair. It's unlikely you can perform a fix yourself. Have you tried opening the machine up? I got PDFs of diagrams and part lists, which I obtained by calling them at the number quoted above. Good luck! Stephen
