How often do I need to use Em7000 ?
I have had my Em7000 for 4 years and I am very happy with it , now I know it will break down at some point so I bought a very cheap broken Em7000 which I fixed up so now have 2 fully working machines , my plan is to keep one as a backup .
I am wondering how often I need to use the spare one to keep it running , I am concerned that if I just leave it in a cupboard until my current machine breaks down it may deteriorate from lack of use ?
Would that be the case ?
I'm no guru, but picked up one (6910, not 7000) that had not been used for a couple of months, and the little rubber ball that forms part of the valve system in the steam pump had seized to it's seat. Had to strip the pump, pull the ball free and re-assemble, and it was fine. I'm not sure that this is at all indicative of timelines, but just pointing out something that could go wrong if left unused long-term
