ok so today i went to make a coffee on my old trusty em6910 but when it started extracting there was a loud BANG noise then the lights went out and the machine ground to a halt

subsequent attempts to turn it on just resulted in tripping the safety switch - Im going to go out on a limb here, but I think its buggered!

Any amateur sleuths out there?

cheers,

pat

Catastrophic short somewhere.  Mark Watts will know more. Contact him via Facebook for the good oil on a service and burial for your former coffee machine :(

Sincere condolences!

Zikes!!! Sorry to hear, a loud bang noise is so surprising from an espresso machine! Unless the machine was just incredibly loving what it was extracting and got excited for you?

yep that pretty much was it five senses ecuador hakuna matata single estate $88 per kg including postage (if you buy it 350g at a time) so expensive sink shots as well!

Ive still got the rancilio epoca so im ok for now but a loss is still a loss and yes ill contact mark for some advice but i suspect that a replacement will be cheaper than a repair in this case!
