Question about FrancisFrancis! X5 Espresso Machine
I am in Aspen for the summer from NYC and I wonder if this problem is altitude related... When I press the brew button, there is a rush of water coming out in an uncontrolled manner. after a few blank shots, it returns to a normal stream, but then it starts again. It ruins my shots a lot and it's hard to predict when it's going to happen again. The machine is out of warranty and I am wondering if this is some kind of adjustment that I can do if I open it up myself...
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.
