There were two versions of the Francis Francis X1; one without the logo (older) and one with. I guess your only chance is ebay; but why would someone sell the holder without the machine?

It is possible that the coffee screen area is blocked, since the steam and hot water work? Try removing the screen and cleaning.

I recentlty bought a Francis X1 (2000 model). I

There are two different handles made for this unit (I own an X1 and have both). Both of these handles have baskets.

First - The pod handle has a basket area that is very shallow, about 1/3 of an inch deep and the basket has very small holes.

Second - The handle for loose grounds came with two baskets, one for a single dose, and one for a double dose. Both removable baskets have the very small holes for the espresso to drip through.

You must have a basket in the handle in order to use the machine. If you try to make espresso without a basket, you'll just make a mess. Besides, the machine will never be able build enough pressure to extract espresso from the grounds.

Search the net (ebay?) for francis francis x1 handle.

Good luck

Basket sticks - FrancisFrancis X1

I have the X1 and have this problem. I do two things - the first being (paradoxically) to tighten the handle a bit - that often frees the basket. If that doesn't work, I loosen the handle (to the point where it's quite loose) and then turn the pump on - that gives enough pressure to the basket to free it. So far, that's worked for me 100% of the time.
Good luck! -Greg
