    Im not familiar with the QM in Australia. But in my experience superauto equates with superordinary coffee so I wouldnt bother.

      Ive searched and searched but can find much info nor a price on what these are worth. I also would need a user manual.

      I can pick it up for a low, low, low, low, low price.

        Not a good machine, parts are ridiculously expensive build quality is poor as mentioned coffee quality is sub standard. Keep your money

          truth be told, its gonna be tossed in the skip. So the asking price is $0.00, lol. I would really love a look at a manual to see if it has any adjust-ability settings etc (cleaning also) so I can throw in some fresh roasted beans and see if I can get anything out of it anywhere near what I get from my EM6910. Seeing as though its about a million times quicker than making one on my sunbeam, it could be very handy to have around. Guess I should maybe try emailing them direct or an Aus supplier?

            Jeez - I thought the big name superautos were crap but this one must be a doozy. I spose you could always have a fiddle and see what happens.

            But if you do get something close to what you get out of your Sunbeam then I would seriously consider throwing them both in the skip.

            On a more serious note I would be very careful pulling anything with an electrical cord still attached out of a skip and plugging it in.

            I note you are also in Melbourne. If I see a puff of smoke and read in the news of a dude fatally attacked by a coffee machine I will know your experiment was less than successful.

              At $0 its still overpriced, You could try the importer but it will cost you the price of a decent SH Silvia for them to look at it

                The machine is in working order, ran a few shots of stale beans through it last night. I just want a manual so I can backflush/clean it up etc. Anyway, Im going open it up take a look. Probs start pulling wires out and disconnect stuff, yknow, see if I can barbecue myself.

                didnt come from the skip, straight from the office into my van, in working order. I know how to work with electricity, Im a tradesman. Have successfully stripped down my sunbeam once upon a time (with excellent help from CS members) so the internals of these are not completely foreign to me.

                  ok so Ive pulled out the grinder and the brew head. Grinder wasnt too bad but the brew head/shower screen is obviously hideous. Needs a new group seal o-ring also. So Im contacting the company direct to see if I can get a manual and maybe a new seal. If i can get those bits, Ill give it a thorough clean out and chemical backflush(if possible) and see what I can achieve. There are coffee grinds all over the place inside. :-? I will take pics along the way.

                  Now understanding how these autos work, I can see why they might struggle to make a "good" coffee compared to a traditional style espresso machine. Interesting all the same.

                      yep, I love looking inside. Will it be cool to post pics of the internals? Will the company be p!$$ed off do you think?

                          I assume youve gone to this page and clicked on the download tab?
                          http://www.quickmill.it/MyIndex.php?Lang=ENG&Menu=Prodotto&id_prod=40

                          It then asks you to log on, but also gives you the option on filling out a simple form to become a registered user. I assume from there you can get the manual online.

                          Otherwise just email them and ask them to send it to you.

                            done it, no registration confirmation yet.

                              someone mentioned today that this machine was around $5k when purchased new, does that sound right?
