Dualit 889 Spare Parts?

Hello,

I am in Hong Kong.

My Dualit 889, which came from the UK some years ago, is missing the tray in the bottom due to a move. I am looking for spare parts or a way to order the missing parts.

I am also interested in buying replacement crema sieves unless someone can propose a solution to this problem: I cannot figure out a way to clean away the coffee residue that has blocked almost all of the holes in the crema sieve. I've tried direct heat/flame, paint thinner, vinegar, every solvent you can think of (yes, soap & water) and the holes remain blocked.

Thank you

    It is indeed a coffee buildup that is causing this issue.

    There are three solutions to this problem:

    - Chemical dissolving of the gunk using commercial products available from espresso dealers

    - Mechanical removal of the gunk via brush (as with this post)

    - Replacement. The basket is a standard sized one and you can buy replacement baskets for handles of this size online at several vendors. Basket costs range from USD$15.00 to USD$30.00.

I have the same problem and clean the filter using a small brass bristled brush (I think it is a suede brush).It is the only thing that seems to get in the holes.I can't get it completely clear but it does seem to do the job.I also thought of getting a gas mantle cleaning prong but haven't tried it yet.It seems to be a build up of coffee that causes the problem.Spares seem to be a problem because the machine is obsolete.I'm thinking of buying another machine off e-bay to use as spares.

My one week old baby gaggia espresso machine is spraying coffee all over my kitchen. Should i take it straight back or am i doing something wrong?


Check the filter basket, if it only has one small hole, it's a pressurised filter and needs the small black Crema Enhancer fitted into the portafilter before fitting the filter basket.

Or buy a spare double filter basket which has lots of holes and does not need the Crema doo-da

No water/coffee comes through? the temprature indicators doesnt light up?


The POWER LIGHT for the 889 is RED and located on the LEFT of the center cowling

The BOILER LIGHT for the 889 is YELLOW and located on the RIGHT of the center cowling

If you turn on the power to the unit (the INNER SWITCH on the RIGHT SIDE) the RED light should turn on, showing that the machine is powered. At that point the YELLOW light should also turn on for about 10 seconds, at which point it will turn OFF with an audible CLICK.

If the RED light does not turn on then you have a very dead machine.

If the RED light does turn on but the YELLOW light does not then you have a half dead machine.

Opening up and repairing the 889 is not for amateurs. High voltage, heat and pressure inside.

If you decide to bin the machine I would appreciate getting the drip tray from you as I have lost mine.

I have an 889 with the same leak problem. This happened after I descaled it. The water leaks from the small hole on the base at the back of the machine, directly below the reservoir. It must need a new...


Most likely you have developed a leak where the pump joins with the boiler. If you put descale chemicals in the reservoir then they may have been baked into the boiler and the backpressure has either ruptured or unseated the tube that leads into the boiler.

This is not a repair for amateurs.

Spare parts for Vice Versa Coffee


Hi there, As far as i am aware all the vice versa places do not carry spares for the koala machines anymore. Im in scotland and tried, UK, Hong Kong, Italy, Spain and a couple of other with no luck whatsoever. I am a domestic coffee machine engineer and over the past few months have picked up some koala machines from here and there. If you contact David at coffeeservice@live.com and let me know what it is you are after, i can see if i have it and get it sent out to you at best prices and cheap postage. Don't worry i distribute worldwide and have had no problems so far. Let me know what you think.

All the best

Dualit expresso 889 - faulty pump??


Actually solved this myself today. It actually was a buildup of scale as I tried a standard descaling sachet, followed the instructions and once enough scale had come out it burst back into life!!!

If you get 'any' flow at all the pump's fine so it just needs a really good cleanout - even if (like me) you think your local water doesn't tend to scale up your kettle.

Hi there,
I am one of the very few domestic coffee machine service engineers in the UK and i am based in Glasgow. I get machines from all over the uk and i think normally costs about £10 - £20 to send depending on who you send it with. I usually turn around machines in two - four days depending on parts availability and number of machines on my workbench but always very quick service and at best prices. If you go to www.theespressoshop.co.uk you will see where and how to get in touch. Just click on domestic servicing on the home page.

All the best

If you are in the UK, contact Dualit, who even though they have stopped making espresso makers, apparently stock a good range of parts - and also offer a repair service.
