    Manual/Docs for San Marino SMSA2

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi,

    Anyone kind enough in Melbourne to let me borrow/loan their manual(s) from a San Marino 2 group (Brierwood) - model SMSA2 (semi-auto) - for 24 hours so I can make a copy and return to you.

    I have a machine in need of a few tweaks and as it has come to me 2nd hand, there are a few things missing that I need to identify so as to order the right parts, etc.

    Have scoured the web (including the original Italian manufacturer) and just cant seem to find any info at all other than a 1-3 page sales brochure of not much use (thanks Saeco).

    Coffeeparts have diagrams etc., but Im after orginal machine docs if possible.

    Machine is about 5 years old and Im sure there are bound to be a few SMSA2s in Melbourne cafes (so if you own one, please let me know).

    I will kindly pay you in a couple KGs of freshly roasted (espresso blend) beans from my Roastery for being a good soul and doing me a favour.

    Thanks,

    Jeff.

    My friend this is almost certainly an extreme machine...what is the replacement value?

    Hi ozscott,
    value - I suppose in its current state about $1400........once I get a few hoses, filter and clean it up a nice and shiny maybe up to $2K. It hasnt had much use, just wasnt looked after properly.

    Thanks clubbi4.

    Yes, there is a CMS sticker on the bottom - was hoping to do some (or all) of the works myself to save moolah, not sure if they would part with the docs but I suppose Im drawing blanks on good ol google, so I may just have to hit em up.

    Cheers,

    Jeff.

    Hi CSers,

    Unfortunately, CMS dont want to know about San Marino machines (which was strange given Saeco still retail them).

    Coffeparts cant help with manuals.

    Offer still stands - anyone willing to loan me the manual (so I can make a copy and return) or point me to a solution that leads to securing a manual will enjoy a generous stash of freshly roasted Espresso blend - starting bid is 1.5kg.

    Thanks.

    I must say, Mr Marzocco (Kane) is an absolute sensational guy.

    He has sent me manuals for my equipment that are impossible to source, even with the power of Google.

    Very much appreciated !

    Will send coffee your way.

    Re: Manual/Docs for San Marino SMSA2

    Hi all from a couple of new members.. We have just bought a San Merino Brava 3 Group and its missing the manuals to program it. Could anybody steer us on the right track to either obtain a copy or talk to someone who might know. I have googled for a bit of research but so far i have not found anything of any substance.

    Re: Manual/Docs for San Marino SMSA2

    I really hate bringing this old thread back up, but it is nearly impossible to get a manual for these machines online....

    I have just taken delivery of a year-old San Marino Lisa - 2 group SME and naturally its missing its manual.

    Does anyone have a link to one - or even know where I can buy one?

    Many thanks in advance & A Happy New Year!

    Re: Manual/Docs for San Marino SMSA2

    Seriously blokes there is not much of value in the owner booklets.

    Usually,
    a) instructions on how to fit up the machine from new
    b) instructions on how to programme the touch pads
    c) instructions on how to regenerate the water softener / depurator,

    and precious little else. They do not tell you how to use the machine, how to make coffee, or how to trouble shoot much if anything other than to advise you to call for service if something is not operating as it should.

    a) is usually a oncer and the trade fit up is done by someone with experience so not required in reality
    b) a dangerous thing to leave with cafe staff unless you dont mind anyone and everyone changing the programmes daily according to unqualified personal whims and
    c) no one in cafes ever does that with the old style water softener /depurators that used to be supplied with the machines because its "too hard".

    All in all, the booklets have not much of any real value in them, are never used, and disappear.

    If you have a service problem, you probably wont find anything in the booklets to help, and you are better off simply starting your own topic here with a specific question, asking for assistance.

    Hope that helps,
    A.

    Re: Manual/Docs for San Marino SMSA2

    Fresh_ ,

    Thanks for the response - but in truth when it comes to these machines I am a newbie - so even programming the buttons is "hard" for me!

    Technically Im not a complete idiot (see my other post on the hot-water pipe) - Ive managed to get it wired in and plumbed myself (safely) and its all working.... but its always that thought at the back of my mind of "did I do it the way its supposed to be done.... and how DO I program those darned buttons!" (guess my background as a Project Manager is showing through! :))

    If there is a guru on here perhaps a generic idiots FAQ could be put together?
