Espresso maker continually leaks when heating


Most likely a gasket problem. But you say that it drips water while it heats. Try it without the coffee holder; it shouldn't leak.

I have a Francis Francis x1 machine, but when i want to make an espresso shot, and turns on the espresso button, the steamer spour out boiling water (not steam, and not while turned on). Does anyone k


Don't know how your controls are set, but you have two switches on the front and a knob on the right. The switch for the steamer (the right hand switch) should be off. The knob on the right should be turned clockwise to turn in off. Then no water or steam should come out of the steamer wand. If it does, the seal on the knob inside the machine is broken. It can be repaired but only if you're handy with a screwdriver (make sure if you take it apart you disconnect it from the mains).

My Francis Francis x1 wont heat


You should check the temperature of the water coming out from the machine when it show that is heated. If it is lower than 90 C then the thermostat inside the machine attached to the boiler is need to be replaced. If the temperature of the water is about 90C then the problem is with thermometer, and in this case is only an accesorie since the machine can faction properly and make a good espresso.

My Francis Z1 machine has lost pressure. The coffe is not as good as it was, it´s more of water than foam on , i´m using pods. The steam is not working anymore. It leaks water and sometimes the...


Your machine have different small problems.
First the steam is not working since during descaling one small scale part blocked in one poind the pipe or valve so the water can not pass and create steam out.
The second problem you describe is that the thermostat which is located on the thermoblock-boiler is not working properly so it does not switch off heating thas you have overheating and thus the valve explosion when the pressure go very high. Also if you try to make a coffee with this very high pressure so very hight temperature then the coffe will burn so you will have atery coffee without cream.
So your machine need to desasembel and manual descale pipes and valves and also to replace the thermostat.
It worh it if you can do it your self or if you find a service that will not charge a lot since you mostly need labour and not parts.
Good luck and thank you for voding

Francis francis x5-espresso splatters all over


1) The coffee you are using may not be ground finely enough to provide a proper extraction time, resulting in water rushing through the ground coffee much too quickly. Think of it like water running through a handful of pebbles as opposed to a handful of sand. You want "sandier" coffee.

2) Your gasket (the rubber part that seals the portafilter to the group head) may be worn/damaged and is leaking water when you are brewing. Attempt to contact FF! or Saeco to secure a replacement gasket. When you are not using the machine, don't tighten the portafilter all the way in to the head, either leave it completely disengaged or only loosely attached. This saves wear on the gasket.

3) Your brew water may be too hot. Purge your boiler right before brewing by running water into a bowl without the portafilter locked in. After a few seconds the superheated water will be run out and you're ready to brew.

Too much pressure


I had this problem also as an effect of the heating element having burnt through within the boiler. Crappy design - keeps "kinda" working even though there is a serious problem. See other Francis-Francis Fixya posts where I go into more detail.
