Removing the top of an EM7000 - guage access
I have a dead ant in my gauges on my em7000.
Was hoping to clean it out by taking the top off the machine. I removed the 5 screws at the back and also the screws on both sides near the group head.
The back part wanted to slide off, but the front was caught on something or has a latching system that i couldnt undo.
Anyone know what the issue is and how i can remove the top?
Also, am i aboe to access inside the guage panel easily??

No one has opened their em7000???
Morning Dover, have you seen this https://media.needapart.co.nz/manuals/EM7000.pdf May be of use.
Thanks Yelta, yeah I had seen the service manual. Tried to make sense of it and it shows a bracket that seems to hold it at the front, but I cant get it to move. Im either missing a screw or theres a technique to moving it that i just cant work out.
I’ll have another play with t at some stage.
I found this thread after forgetting how to remove the top cover. For those still wondering, you need to remove the 5 screws along the back, then the 2x front most screws under the overhang (1 is in front of the hot water wand, 1 is in front of the steam wand). Then push the whole top piece including the gushes towards the back of the machine, it should move about 1cm then can be lifted.
