when did you buy the machine?? have you checked the water container hasnt got a crack in it? or does it only leak when its turned out?

It is actually the model with the grinder and this is the replacement from my original purchase last year. Reservoir is not damaged from what I can see. I think it is leaking underneath

My second EM7000 is about to expire. The first one made about 10000 cups over 7 1/2 years, the second about 8000 over 6 and a bit. I love these machines. Can I buy a new one at Bing Lee or DJs? I want NO other machine.

Robynasked

My EM7000 is 7 months out of its 12mth warranty. Last weekend I replaced the seal as it started to spray coffee everywhere whilst making my coffee. After replacing the seal it was worse than ever. I spoke to a coffee machine repairer they advised me to take the new seal out and make sure there weren't coffee grounds between the seal and around the head. When I unscrewed the shower head, I noticed a small hole in the head. It wasnt there when i replaced the seal. It looks like a tiny rust hole. I clean my machine regularly. My last smaller machine lasted 10 yrs using it everyday and I am not doing anything different. Why would this happen under 2 yrs? You might expect it to happen after 10 yrs.

Hi, ive had my EM7000 for just over a year now, ive just replaced the group head seal as i wasnt able to make the proper pressure. I have my sunbeam grinder EM0480 as fine as it can go and im having to tamp the coffee as hard as i can to just make pressure or fall short of it. Ive ran a cleaning tablet thru with no success. Any information would be helpful. Thank you

Check to see if you can out a washer under bottom grinder blade after tou take it off. Will lift it up making it able to be adjusted finer.

My Em7000 seems to have steam pressure problems - no pressure to texture or heat the milk. I have cleaned the machine both the thermo block and steam and thermo descaling. I can hear the pump working and the thermo block is hot so I'm not sure what is wrong with it. My machine is 6 1/2 years old and worked well all this time.

No, we do not have anything that illustrates how to do that. Can I ask how long you've had the product?

Hello Paul W.
I'm not quite sure what has happened here but given that it is only 8 months old, it would be best to take it to a repair agent and have them look at it. What ever the repair costs are will be on us under your repair warranty.

Hi I have had this machine for 4 years now with no issues. It has suddenly lost coffee pressure completely. I have put the tablets through with no change in pressure. Could this be the pump and if so what is the cost to replace this part.
Cheers Kate

Fine up the coffee grind and see if thats your issue. Often if you change coffee beans it reacts differently

Hello Peter,
The manual suggests for it to be changed every 6 months but that would depend on your use and everyday cleaning.

Hello - where can I purchase a new anti calc cartridge? Seems like most are from EBay, or online retailers rather than main stream stores.
Thanks - Justin

Hello Justin,
Yes, online stores are the best place to order the FILTER ANTI-CALC CARTRIDGE. EM69101 - is the product code so you can get the right one.
Another way to get the part is to purchase it through our service agents, find your closest agent here: https://www.sunbeam.com.au/en/Service-Agent-Locator/

Hi, My EM700 is new. I have had a lot of coffee machines but with this one, the pressure guage is barely moving and there is no crema??

Anti calc capsule
I took this out so that I could wash the water reservoir and now when I try to put it back in, it doesn't stay in place. As soon as I fill the reservoir with water, it floats.
How can I keep it in place? Is there a trick to putting it in?
Thanks

Hi Leanne A.
Thank you for contacting Sunbeam. The Anti Calc filter cartridge can be tough to replace. It slots in and with a twist it should lock in. It may take a few attempts. Kind Regards, Sunbeam
