    Favour pls - Manual/Wiring Plan - Unico Splendour?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I attended a clearance auction here in Perth yesterday, and placed the winning, $675 bid for a second hand Unico Splendour - needless to say, Im pretty stoked *:)

    It was really quite grubby, but after a two hour clean up and soak in cafetto, the machine is back to its gleaming former glory.

    However, when I turn it on, its not heating up and there is no pump sound when I activate the lever (yes, I have filled the water reservoir!) *Since Im a technical luddite, Im going to have someone whos qualified dig around behind the scenes.

    Does anyone have an electronic version of the manual and wiring diagram? *I dont know what I can offer in return for the favour other than good karma *;)

    Thanks!

    Re: Favour to ask - Manual for a Unico Splendour?

    Gday Al...

    Attilio of CosmoreX Coffee is the importer of this line of machines into Oz, so perhaps he may be able to help you out. Try contacting him via the contact details on his website, link on the L/H side of the page... :)

    Cheers,
    Mal.

    Ah, of course, good suggestion Mal.

    Ill be speaking with Cosmorex again next week (theyre the ones who I ordered the side perspex panel from) - didnt even think to ask them about the wiring plan *::)

    Cant wait to crank this baby up!

    Sounds like you made an excellent pickup there Al... [smiley=thumbsup.gif]

    These are truly the Rolls Royce of Prosumer espresso machines and the Unico is just a thing of beauty to go with it. Very envious mate, Im sure youll be very happy with it.... 8-)

    Hi Alcehmist. I think Attilio has a service specialist in Perth and will be able to direct you to him to give your machine an electrical one over....Hopefully some minor bits and pieces will have you up and running...

    Good luck! ;)

    Nice one Chris - their service agent is a hop, skip and jump from the Perth CBD so will pop it in during the week - thanks for the advice *:)

    Thanks Mal! *It truly was an offer too good to refuse (and to be honest, the "Red Mist" had settled in during the auction and there was no way I was walking out without it ) ;)

    The "problem" (if you could call it that) is that I already have a Mondiale. *My rationale was that I was going to clean, repair then sell the Splendour but Im having a re-think. *I can forsee a number of school fetes, church fetes, and other events where, in the absence of a commercial two group machine, two single prosumers would be just as capable - so I may just end up keeping them both.

    Thats the sales pitch Im using on the Mrs. anyway.... wish me luck *;D

    Congrats.

    Clearance auctions can be great.

    My son works for an austion house as some of you might remember and this week they were clearing a furniture warehouse for a buch of old guys who all decided to retire at the same time.

    My daughter decided to pop along and took my wife with her.
    The girl is getting married in about 18 mths and my wife was looking for a bookshelf and display cabinet.

    My daughter picked up a dining table, coffee table and chairs and my wife found the two items she was after.

    Prices were stupidly cheap.

    For example the chairs retailed for $300 each and she got them for $30 a piece.

    I previously was lucky noone else bid on the Gino Rossi which I had my eye on.

    You not only have a splendid machine but the good feeling of a bargain price.

    Enjoy!

    Now you have twin HX machines to match the twin corretto roasters

    Looks like you like to do things in twos just to keep things even
    Do you have children that are twins?? ::)
