  • Where is the cheapest Sunbeam EM4820 handle?

    Hi all,

    I've just begun my coffee machine journey with a cheap Sunbeam EM4820 machine. Didn't want to spend too much in case I found out manual machines weren't for me.

    I'm chasing a second filter handle. Does anyone know where I can get one for a reasonable price? Some Sunbeam parts suppliers are asking $90 for one .. bit rich considering I paid $50 for the machine (second hand of course).

    I believe the 4820 handle is different to the 3800/4800 series .. it only has two lugs instead of 3. I'm not sure if the 6910 handle fits as the basket size is different?

    Cheers in advance

    The EM4820 uses a 51mm brass 2 lug portafilter whereas the EM3800 is the same size but uses a 3 lug alloy portafilter and won't fit. The EM4800 uses a 3 lug portafilter also. The EM6910 uses a 58mm portafilter so won't fit either. Probably best to keep a look out on Gumtree or Ebay for a EM4820 parts machine or maybe one going real cheap.
