Question about FrancisFrancis! X1 - Stainless Steel Espresso Machine
Machine sometimes works, but mostly does not. Green light is on but when the coffee button is pressed, nothing happens. Recently after turning the machine on there is a constant beeping noise and the green light flashes.
Turn the steam a let it run twice. Turn off and start the machine again as normally use.

Hello all, I had the same problem and I was not willing to pay to repare the machine so I opened it and had a look inside but could not find anything.
Then started connecting/disconnecting different parts of the machine to isolate the problem which turned to be the boiler. There must be some short inside it so nothing I could fix myself.
Instead what I did is to disconnect the ground connections (yellow cables) and now it's working fine! I didn't notice anything in the last couple of weeks so I'm enjoying the machine again.
Of course there must be a better solution for the problem but this "quick and dirty" trick turned to work out for me!

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.

Hi There are a couple of things that could have happened. The fuse could have blown, but you wouldn't get a pop usually. The main board could have blown, that will pop. There is a hole below the steam arm. up inside there is a screw that you can loosen. Then you can unscrew the steam knob. There are 4 screws on the bottom side of the cover that will allow you to remove the top. Make sure that the machine is unplugged.
