    Silvia Boiler/Element Replacement (year change?)

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Looks like ive fried the element in my silvia.
    Is anyone aware of the manufacturing year for which they changed the boiler to have an integrated element.?
    mines a 2004 or 2005 model (not sure).

    Would just like to know if the service crew are going to sting me for an element or whole boiler replacement. I can t really tell by looking at it.

    On that note.. also... is there a preferred (snobs) service shop in Perth..? (Supreme Coffee machines is in my area)

    Cheers
    KoNG

    wow....
    i got a quote today from a mob here in Perth.
    $185 for the boiler.....
    but 1.5 - 2 hours labour (@ $95/hr)

    So their estimate was $330 - $400...
    think ill have to have a go myself.

    this seems to be the only boiler sold (on the net)
    has anyone done the change themselves and knows even though they are different it all still fits..???

    Heres a link to an excellent pictorial How-To KoNG... :)

    http://www.coffeeco.com.au/articles/repair.html

    The process sequence is well laid out and quite straight forward to follow, if you have the tools and quite handy using them.

    All the best mate... [smiley=thumbsup.gif]

    It might be an idea to take a few photos before you start so that you know where everything was placed / connected before dismantling her.
