    Can anyone identify this Faema?

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

    Im looking to buy some spare parts (just in case) from Coffeeparts for the machine show below...but unfortunately i cant find any sites with pictures of old Faemas so i can match up which model it is.

    The machine is currently on a ship and cant be inspected...the person who loaded it didnt look, and the previous owner didnt know. All i have is this picture (hehe its like trying to track down a long lost relative) and i need to buy the parts before it is unloaded (long story) so i need to ID it based on the picture if possible.


    Thanks in advance guys.

    Looks like a "prestige".

    It will probably be a good 30 yo or more.

    It is mechanical in function (not electro-mechanical).

    Faemas of this era commonly had problems with leaks in the water jacket (heat exchanger). You can tell if it has been leaking if there are leak marks from the top end of the water jacket at top of the boiler.

    Good luck with it.

    Ah okay, cheers for that.

    Yeah it apparently had sprung a leak about 2yrs ago, and a whole heap of stuff was replaced on it at that time.

    I was just looking to get a little kit together of stuff like gaskets, o-rings, showerscreens etc...but it doesnt look like Coffeeparts carries bits for the Prestige line. hmm. Could be a problem.

    Virtually the same as (but not identical to) the "No-Stop" model, so try Pedro with that.

    hehehe, well if they are, then it is the LM that has Faema steam knobs,
    not the other way around!

    It looks like a Faema E66 and shares similar or the same seals as the Faema E64
