Question about Schaerer Opal Espresso Machine

Where do I get cleaning tablets for my schaerer opal?

I have recently purchased a second hand schaerer opal and am very happy with it! It's time for a clean though and the manual tells me about a two coloured tablet and I haven't been able to find these anywhere!!! Does someone know where I can purchase these special tablets or if there are any others on the market that I can also use with this machine? Thanks heaps for your help and efforts!! Sigrid

Schaerer opal is noisy on startup.

Is it noisy when the pump runs on startup? If so then the pump is airlocked, run water through the wand to release this... Depending on model, you can do this by placing a cup under the wand and pressing the jug button or turning the knob on right side to the water symbol.

Where do i put the cleaning tablet?

Cleaning tablet goes in the top of the machine in the opening just to the right of the bean hopper. Generally there is a little cover that you lift off and drop the tablet down the chute when prompted in the cleaning cycle.

No power to my schemer opal

Don't forget the that there's an on/off switch on the left hand side of the machine as well as the button on the front. You'd be surprised how many people this catches out.

Triangle with ! inside telling me to take my Opal to 'an authorised specialist'. Any way round this?

Is the machine working or is there a fault? You can try to do a base configuration or factory reset.

Water low indicator comes on every time you try to use it but it is full

Sounds like a dirty boiler probe.The probe has lime on it and should be cleaned.If attempting to clean make sure unit is unplugged and cool.

My Schaerer Opal machine has started to leak water from the pipe going to the steamer. The pump will therefore run continuously to try to fill up the boiler. Now I am wondering if any one has a service...

Go to the manufacturer's website. Typically the manuals are online. If not, call the Tech people and ask for an archived copy..typically little or no cost.

i work on schaerer machines. on the back of the lid there are two plastic spikes that make contact with in the machine, when you lift the lid it breaks contact so when you select your product you dont put your hand near the grinder. order a new lid or write back and ill tell you how to jam it open. If you want?
