  • Gurgling / Squeaking EM6910

    Had the EM6910 for a month now - v happy so far.
    But when I turn it on its just started to make gurgling/squeaking noises and water goes into the drip tray from the overflow thingy at the back. Only does this for a few seconds and then quiet as a mouse.
    Can anyone tell me if this is normal?

    All best

      AFAIK its normal, everyone I know with this machine says it makes that noise whilst warming up.

      Strange thing is my old one didnt make the noise immediately after buying, it took a few weeks before I noticed it.

          When I called sunbeam and had the lady listen to the noises she says its not meant to be like that and told me to pick up a new one.

          The next 2 had the same sound so Im assuming its normal. Doesnt seem to affect brewing.

          sometimes steam shoots out the drip tray! Looks really funky....

          I wouldnt worry too much....

            Youre up to your 3rd Sunbeam?!?

            Gee, that kind of quashes the argument that there are only a small % that are faulty doesnt it? Is it that there are in fact faults and people just accept or become accustomed to them? I just dont understand why its OK for a machine to start making noises after youve had it a while.

              I exchanged one machine after another up until my 3rd then I returned it for a refund.

              The noises made me question the reliability and quality of the machine.

                      It depends on whether during the first few weeks you hung around with bated breath waiting for the machine to warm up.

                      If you did and it was quiet Id understand concern at new noises.

                      My guess is that it was switched on and left in peace on warm up and no noises were noticed because no one was there to notice.

                      However if you then happen upon the mchine at just the time it makes the odd puff asd squeek you may think its a new noise.

                      I hear the 6910 at work make these same startup noises, but not every time because I dont sit and watch it.

                      "If a Sunbeam hisses in a kitchen and theres no one there to hear it, does it really make a sound?"

                            Normal with mine as well, it seems to be a purge of some sort.
