Does anyone know how to identify the year of manufacture of a CMA machine? I just got a Venezia by Cecilware SAE 1 machine.. can't find any information on how old it is.

Hmm.. coffee geek doesn't like google plus. There is a space between the "0" and "3" in the URL.. delete that to make it go.

should have a tag with serial number, model, wattage and
DATA di produzione or something of the sort
if not,
the closes thing will be dates on components which as long as they are original will get you in the bulk park of the year in which the machine was assembled

It does have all those things with the exception of the date. There is a "date" section on the tag, but it is not filled in. I have looked at the components (solenoids, pump, pump motor, electrical box), but no dates anywhere. It's bizarre. If you can get the link to work, you'll see the tag.

I looked at the picture
I will assume the last 2 digit of the serial number possibly 97
but look at the above 2 components for double checking

Okay, thanks. I will try to examine the control box more closely to see if I missed something. I thought that maybe it was 1997 due to the serial.. but the machine does not look that old, and the components look to be fairly new.
