    Sunbeam EM6910 is it worth fixing?

    I have an old 6910 that has been well loved and used over the past 8+ years, from what I have read this machine is still well regarded so I am wondering if its worth fixing

    There is a leak somewhere near the steam knob. signs of water scale/damage under the steam knob
    the water level sensor packed up long ago and its had a magnet in there for ages
    the brew head seal is shot
    the collar is also in need of replacing
    and this morning I found a hole in the side of the porta filter

    Is this the end of the line for my well loved machine ?

    Perhaps it is, unless you are doing the repairs yourself.
    I just pulled mine to bits this morning to replace the collar, after over 10,000 shots.
    Water level sensors are cheap, and part of what I would call normal maintenance, as is the brew head seal.

    However, if you were close I would buy it off you and fix it with the new parts it needs!

    If you were closer I would pay you to fix the machine for me

    Where are you? One of my Perth friends upgraded his 6910 and he is going to sell it. Probably good for another 5 years - I checked it out a few weeks back for him.
