Recommendation needed for Appliance Repair
« on: July 21, 2018, 01:12:12 PM »
Hi All,

I have an Espresso machine with built-in bean grinder. The grinder stops working, most likely due to malfunctioning motor. I have tried to call several eletrician/appliance repair shops found on Google, but they all said they do not fix small appliance for households.

Does anyone happen to know someone who could fix my espresso machine?

Much thanks

Have your tried searching the mfg's website for a repair facility?

If you're looking for someone to come to your house, it ain't gonna happen!  If it's consumer machine, you got to bring it in.

I remember a repair shop on Cross Bay Blvd that was very upfront about repair cost vs replacement when I brought my 30 yrs old Kitchen Aid Mixer in.  Don't remember the name.  Do a search.

Also, check out:  coffeegeek.com  Someone else might have had a similar problem.

Remember repair might be more costly than replacement.

I have a prousemer machine and it took me a long time to find a company to make a house call.

If you've exhausted all alternatives and think it's worth the expense, message me and I'll tell you who repaired my Expobar.

Thank you. I'll look up the place on Cross Bay Avenue.

Anyone else who has a go-to shop for appliance repair please share.

Porto Rico, the coffee seller, sells high end stuff, but also many home machines. They have repair services and if they cannot help, could point you in a right direction. https://www.portorico.com/store/index.html
