Poor quality build
These machines are built poorly. 2 years on and it leaks from the bottom. Last Sunbeam product I buy. Utter crap, no consistency in quality, except that it is pot luck if you get a descent one for your money.
7 years in still going strong, 3 friends have bought same machine after me telling them to do it
After 7 years of using it, i would go out again and buy another one if it broke down today. Its a work horse and give great coffee.
Once you know what your doing with coffee you can change the preset setting to fit how you like to make coffee, higher steam pressure or wetter steam, hotter brew water colder, different infusion process.
1 thing i do straight away with my machine and friends was go out and Buy a VST 22g basket for the coffee Dramatic changes made a good coffee machine Excellent.
- Cafe Series Espresso EM7000 (Stainless)
- Verified purchase
Second major problem in just over 2 years.
Was hoping this Cafe series expresso machine purchased in 2017, was built to a higher standard than the previous model which failed after several years of light use. However it started having problems and then stopped altogether( lights on nobody home) resulting in a costly repair replacing electronic board . 6 months later and the pressure of the steam wand is reduced to zero despite diligently following care instructions. It also now wont even go through a clean cycle. Pfft, certainly cant afford another costly repair. Goodbye Sunbeam, no longer a quality reliable company.
Purchased in February 2017.
Questions & Answers
My machine once turned on and heated starts pumping water out without any buttons being pushed?
Hi I am turning on my em7000 that worked this morning, and now it is not reaching temperature and becoming available for making coffee. Just sitting there with the left light gently pulsing.
What is the likely issue, temperature sensor or system board or something else?
My machine randomly decides to release the group head while in operation with makes a big mess
Called the sunbeam hotline and recommended to do a pressure test with different results every time. Sometimes some water loss then to no loss and past red zone ,other stayed in orange/ grey
and leaked and or basically completely in red zone with just a dribble.
Not sure where to go from here, thinking of changing the seal
