    EM6900 and Wet Steam

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    My 6900 was returned to Sunbeam with 2 complaints:

    Wet Steam and a bad seal. The seal was fixed OK, no problem anymore.
    The steam is still very wet I think, I have now measured the amount of water that comes with the steam
    it is 25-30 Ml per minute. Does that seems OK? I called Sunbeam and they said it was measured to be 19 grams
    and it was within the specs for this machine.
    Can I have the valued opinion of some of our members please?

    Thanks in advance

    Yep, sounds like its too wet... My Em6900 is alot dryer than that... send it back... you need to have it sent back 4 times before the EM6900 comes good... thats my experience anyway :-)

    dickwyn, youll find that youll get the steam arm and pump installed on it that comes in the EM6910... like I did... and youll be happy with the steam - its quite good... still a little wet but works really well... I get silky velvet microfoam with mine.... :-)
