I inherited a Faema Family System - both machines with stand. The Espresso machine needs a new pump and the grinder works great. I have the pump issue resolved once I get the Ulka pump. It's the grinder that I need help with now.
So what I'm looking for is the LID for the DOSER. I have the hopper lid but the doser lid is missing...I have the tan and black machines, but at this point I'll accept any color.
Does anyone have a source for the doser lid? It's a mess without it! I'll even buy someone's defunct grinder 'for parts'...

I run my grinders all the time without a lid on the doser and never had any mess but I run different grinders though. I think you will have a hard time finding an factory part, you likely will need to make something yourself.

I've got a grinder that is busted. Seems the previous owner thought it was a good idea to cross-thread the basket after (probably) changing the burrs. I've given up trying to fix it but mine is black/red though. If you want it for parts (burrs look particularly nice), then I'm open to that.
Let me know if you are still looking, I happened to come across this looking for Faema Family mods.
