BEFORE SUBMISSION
At least 80% of the reported cases turn out to be no issue. Before you lug the machine back to us, forward us details on your issue and we will advise if servicing is required. You are encouraged to read the troubleshooting page before submission.
You may want to be as specific as possible, so we can assist you better. Videos or photos will help.
Vague information like “machine is not working”. Doesn’t help.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKES FOR A REPAIR?
Repairing an espresso machine is not done with a couple of tools and tapes, it’s a lengthy process, requiring a wide range of tools and our technicians will prefer to give you the best quality of work. The manhour required per machine is usually  anything from 30 minutes to 60 hours, depending on the condition of the machine.
Do note that food-grade sealant applied on the fittings, will need a full day to strengthen and cure, It will take hours for cleaning agents to react, a lot of time to identify issues in the water circuity, and we will require a lot of tests and observation for leaks. We also do extra steps to make sure that the bolts are held securely after expansion and contraction from the metal during heating. A pressurized or heated up machine, cannot be handled and needs to wait for it to cool. As such, repairs or servicing will usually require a few working days to complete. We are unable to answer questions on how long it takes for a repair to be done or when can the machine be picked up.
For urgent cases who wish to pass the machines to us as soon as possible, you can choose to make an appointment and submit the machine personally. Repairs and servicing are base on first come first serve.
