Hello, I just find a Super Quick 0825 espresso machine with integrated grinder. Did not start it yet, so I don't know if it is in working condition. Anybody have information about this machine ? Do you know where I can find the user's manual ? How old can it be ? Thanks !

You are correct there is not much out there on this machine.
I found one thread on a German board from 2011 that (if the translator is to be believed) said it ran for 15 years in an office without a problem.

I can not find the desgin of the machine if it is a SBDU or a HX. It does have a built in grinder and very often, that is not a good sign as most of the time they are starter class machines and the grinder is a marketing ploy so that the buyer does not need to buy the grinder too. Most often, the grinder has very wide steps and is limited for adjustment.

The generic instructions for either a SBDU or HX should work as most work the same and only the location of the switches are different, depending on the type of machine it is.

What does it say on the switches? I can't read it in the pic. That may be a clue to what kind of a machine it is. The three lights SEEM to indicate it is a SBDU, very often they have 3 lights to show power on, brew temp and steam temp.

Thank you for these informations. Here are pics from the switches.

Right side top button says:
Clockwise: Heating and Coffee
Counterclockwise: Heating and Steam

First test (please consider that I am a real rookie in «coffee engineering»):

There is a light leak near the thermoblock (I think it is a thermoblock, don't look as a boiler to me). A plastic T joint to be eventually replaced.

The steam wand overflows when coffee is pourred but can't tell what is the problem: O-ring ? Some valve ?

The grinder flow out is so intense, there's coffee everywhere ! Have to understand why...

The temperature seems to be a bit cold but I have to test it again. And anyway, probably nothing to do to change that.

Finally, I found out the function of the buttons on the bottom of the front panel: one is for fine tuning the quantity of coffee grounded (as a timer). The other one is to control the flow of the pump (more or less water).

Will accept any advice to help me improve this machine.

Thanks.

(Sorry for my basic english, it is not my first language...)

So as I was not confident to repair it by myself (remember, I'm a real rookie), I brought it to a repair shop. To be followed...

Looking bad... Repair shop told me it is not possible to repair. Seems that the group head is cracked and discontinued. So as I have nothing to lose, I will dismantle it by myself and see what I can do.

Maybe parts from 0835 or Retro or Poccino could be used for grinder, tubing or fitting, seals, etc.

I will keep you informed if you're interested.
