I’ve recently seen the motor/pump start to fail and this forum was invaluable in helping me identify the issue. I’ve got a new pump/motor on order and have decided to give the machine a good service alongside this.
I’ve had the machine 4 years or so, It runs off softened/filtered water so scale seems minimal, here are some pictures from the inside of the steam boiler:
And of the very bottom of the boiler (and side view):
I don’t see any issues here, the pressure gauge needs replacing, I’ve disconnected that and it still reads 0.5bar and this doesn’t seem to be something I can service as it looks to be a sealed unit.
I’ve stripped the grouphead and was looking to replace the cams/pins/springs etc with kits from BB and wanted to replace the mushroom which has seen better days…

However, these images seem to show some corrosion, the pictures have been taken on an endoscope so might not be 100% clear but is this of any concern?
No point in buying the bits to service it if the grouphead itself is needing attention.
