FS: [Melb] Beville BES900 Double Boiler package - needs some work - $200
BES900 Double Boiler package consists of the BES900 unit plus the accessories as shown, however the unit needs some work (more detail below).
The machine has been well cared for, cleaning cycle followed whenever it appeared on the screen, and 8 second flush pulled after every shot.
Machine is currently working with the following issues:
- Steam wand drips during heating up and at temperature. The pressure out of the wand is just great though!
- Pressure value on the gauge is wavering and dropping off while a shot is being pulled.
If you are handy at the workbench, then you could service this back to full condition. Alternately, you might just want the unit for all the parts and accessories.
For parts alone this package is worth over $300.

Just checking, are there any other issues other than what you've listed?
Does the wand dripping and pressure gauge effect pulling a shot and frothing milk? Or are they just cosmetic issues.
Also, I noticed below you're selling a naked portafilter for this machine. Would you include that?

However the issues noted aren't just cosmetic - that's why I am selling so cheap.
The pressure gauge variance could mean the OPV (Over Pressure Valve) is failing and needs to be replaced.
Or it could mean the pump is starting to fail and needs replacement.
Someone is going to have to do some work on the machine in the near future.
I don't know what the dripping steam wand means in the long term. However the steam pressure is fine and works very well.
Regarding the portafilter - it is a valued item in its own right so I don't expect too much difficulty selling it, however I will add it to the package for a total of $250 if that sweetens the deal for you.
when can this be picked up, during the day or after hours?
Pickup is generally possible 7 days, 7.30am to 10.00pm. Just needs to be coordinated.
Ok, I will Pm you for more info.
Blacky, I received your PM and that's all fine. I have tried to reply with Firefox, Chrome, and IE, and for some reason there is nothing in my Sent box so I don't think my replies are getting to you. Can you send me another PM with your mobile and we can pick up the conversation?
