|FrancisFrancis X1 Ground Espresso Machine - REFURB
X1 Ground Model - 3rd Generation.
Light Blue finish.
Refurbished by CraystoneShop.
No expense spared, complete 'nuts and bolts' refurbishment from top to bottom.
The machine has been completely stripped down and rebuilt with ALL new major components and many other new parts.
Many hours have gone into the rebuild, refurbishment and testing of this machine and the individual cost of parts exceeds the sales price.
For your money you're getting a terrific X1.
The boiler has been removed, manually descaled and rebuilt with a new heating element, seals, expansion stopper, spring, pipes, group head seal - as good as new!
The circuit board has been replaced with the latest economy, energy saving board.
Performance is improved and the energy-saving mode starts at 30 minutes of inactivity, it then goes into 'stand-by mode' until you're ready to have another espresso.
The pump has been replaced along with the non-return pump over pressure valve for added peace of mind.
The flow function is like new!
The temperature gauge has been replaced with a 3rd Gen/1st version gauge.
The gauge is reading the temperature accurately.
In addition the machine has had a full service, all consumable seals, water pipe, overflow pipe have been replaced.
It's been rigorously tested for operation and for coffee production.
The only (minor) problem is when the machine gets up to temperature there is no 'beep' however the green light illuminates to indicate the machine is at temperature and is ready to go.
This is a superb machine!
The bodywork has had a full refurbishment. Small areas of rust have been removed, rust treated the metal and painted.
These areas have been highlighted on the photos above.
On close up you can obviously see the repairs but once on your kitchen worktop you'd never know that they were there.
The machine has been extensively cleaned and polished and looks fantastic.
Machine is supplied with water tank, drip tray, drawer front, stainless steel drip tray, 3rd gen ground handle, double basket, single basket and single plastic spout.
A real opportunity to get yourself a top condition, warranted X1 machine for a terrific knock-down price.
It comes with a 12 months return to base peace of mind warranty.
Please note that this is a ground coffee machine only and will not take ESE pods or coffee capsules.
Price includes delivery to UK mainland.
