Posted Wed Feb 19, 2014, 7:40am Subject: Trustworthy Espresso Repairman or Company in Southern California?
It's been a long time - years - since I've posted here.
I own an Alex Duetto 2 from Chris Coffee, purchased 5 years ago. It's started having problems (water leaking from the tube that dumps into drip tray). I know that most of you would fix it yourself, and I have spoken with the guys at Chris Coffee.
Given how busy my work schedule is - and my complete lack of knowledge regarding espresso machine mechanics - I'd rather pay someone to fix it rather than futz around myself.
Like with any repairman or auto mechanic, I don't want to get ripped off or overcharged.
Is there someone trustworthy in the southern california you can recommend to help me fix my machine. From what the guy at Chris Coffee it's not terribly complicated and the part is inexpensive.

Here is my article on the E-61 overhaul, step by step:
How-To 19 - Overhauling and Lubricating the E-61 Group It's easy, really. If you had all replacement parts on hand and the tools, the first time would take maybe an hour if you are handy at all. But even if you do not do it yourself, you will know what needs to be done which will limit the rip-off factor.
