  • My Sunbeam EM6910 1 Yr Old Today !

    Like others, Ive had my share of issues with the machine (even going back to my original EM6900).....but Sunbeams warranty service has always been brilliant (including a replacement EM6910 when past the original 12 month period).

    Well as of today, my replacement machine is exactly 1 year old and it got through that 12 month period without a glitch.

    Hell, chances are it may die tomorrow, but I just wanted to celebrate a full year of uninterrupted coffee making

        I took the first one back after two days. It ground well at first but then produced coarse rubbish no matter what setting I tried.

        The replacement doesnt impress me with the taste of the coffee compared to my dear departed Rocky

        I think it will go back after i do the Sunbeam coffee training course on Saturday - unless they convince me Im doing something wrong.

              Hello Honest Gaza,

              Good to hear yours made it past a year. Now you can do the MOD to yours that I did. The Brass Waste Pipe removal MOD.

              Basically the waste pipe burst off the little gray plastic thing at the bottom on the inside. It contains a brass nipple. Mine was clogged and thats why the pipe burst off. I removed the brass section and reattached the hose, made a quick mod the the plastic bit and pushed it back in, and viola. Now the water comes out properly and there is no strain on the internals in getting the pressure released.

                When was the last time you gave your machine a chemical back flush?

                  Well Ive resisted "upgradeitis", because the coffee that I can produce from a working EM6910 is just how I like it

                  However, when the inevitable arrives, and the machine goes up into the sky where all good machines must one day go....would I buy another ? :-/

                    I never used the tablet until the first blockage.  The thing is when I ran the tablet through, I couldnt get proper pressure for the tablet to be effective because of the stupid silicone thing you put in the basket.  Thats when Sunbeam sent me the new O-Ring that fits above the group seal.

                    I find that now I dont need that seal.  The group seal works fine without it.

                      Its designed that way.
                      The 6910 isnt built to take a proper blind filter; thats why the insert has a hole in the middle of it.

                        Well, mine doesnt have a hole in it, and it shouldnt either.  I still use a proper blind filter cause that is the only way to guarantee that it will get enough pressure to do the cleaning cycle.  It was frothing like a rabid dog using the gray disc and running out of the handle.

                          BeanMonkey every one of them that Ive seen has the hole in it.

                          the machine is not designed to use a blind filter
                          blocking water supply for any extended period may cause internal leaks in the joints

                          the disc supplied only works with tablets, and doesnt overload the system
                          using the disc you will find some water will escape from the PF
                          The above quote is from a Sunbeam repair agent.

                            TG is correct. The EM6910 runs a pressure insert for the single PF...I once tried a true blind and it didnt make very nice noises. The thing cleans just fine with Caffeto and the insert. Mine is now about 2.5 years old and going strong.

                            As a matter of interest does anyone retain a working EM6900?

                            Cheers

                              The one at work died December 2007, so not this little black duck.
