    Need some information on Sunbeam coffee machines

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

    I have a Sunbeam EM6910. Love it. Itís about 10 years old. Last night I broke the thread of the brass elbow that connects to the steam thermo block and consequently need not only to replace the brass elbow but also the 4mm copper pipe that runs to the steam wand. I looked on eBay for old machines for spare parts and I found a guy just up the road from me selling a EM7000 although advertised as a 6910. Can anybody tell me if the parts are compatible? I would really like to get this fixed before my wife gets home from her week away and discovers I broke the coffee machine. Thanks

    Yes, the thermoblocks are compatible between the two.

    The EM7000 uses a nylon tube rather than a copper pipe to join the thermoblock to the steam valve. It is slightly too short for the EM6910 and it's going to stress both ends of the tube quite badly. It'll probably work in a pinch but I wouldn't rely on it long term.

    I would also look on Gumtree, EM6910's are a common item on there.

    Hi Chris,

    I donít think you have enough posts for your private messaging to be active. If you reply to my last couple of posts on this thread you might just about be there.
