Question about FrancisFrancis! X5 Espresso Machine

That replacement Saeco-Francis-Francis element


Can you share the source from which you found the "Saeco-X1" element? ("...The part number for the Saaco is MCP 42 07. The element is 120 Volts and 900 Watts....") My quick Google search hasn't taken me anywhere easily yet.

My X5 appears as if it has the identical element - 1-1/2" ID, 2-3/8" OD, 2-1/2" from flat side to bulkhead seals, and about a 1-9/16" center-center at the terminals, same four element turns...and yeah, it's all really metric, but...

    not sure about Allan's part number, but Googling 188150351 got me to some optional sources for the hardware in question.

I picked up my Saeco element for my X1 repair at this location in Ricmond, British Columbia, Canada. They carry the part in stock.

The part was 48 CDN dollars.

How can i get parts for a francis francis x1

What parts? The gasket is a standard gasket and you can probably get it on ebay. One of the things I like about the Francis Francis is that you can take it to pieces; there aren't many parts that cannot be found. The screws are easy to obtain and replace; I used screws I bought for my motorbike. So you can find most things without going to Francis Francis - obviously the machine won't be guaranteed!

I bought a second hand Francis Francis X1 Espresso Coffee Machine & the gauge & Milk frother are no longer working. Any advice?

Perhaps the heating element is broken. Does it heat up at all? If not, the steamer won't work and there will be nothing for the gauge to register.
