How to change the steam tap on a FrancisFrancis X1

21 Sep 2015
Hi, you guys have been asking how to remove the steam tap from the X1 machine so I've made another little video for you. Removing the steam tap is the first step to getting inside the X1, as you can't remove the top cover until the steam tap has been removed. Once removed you can replace the steam tap with a new part quite easily. If your steam wand is leaking and dripping out constantly onto your worktop, then it's likely to be the steam tap and o-ring not shutting off the valve correctly, a replacement tap will sort it out for you:)

If you would like a guide on anything else, please let me know and I'll find time (from somewhere) and post it here for you.
