Subject: Elektra MCAL that i might buy
 

I'm after a Elektra Micro casa (lever) and found one that need some service
I'm trying to estimate the price on the things that needs to be done and offer him a price after i know.

The front elektra sign is missing
He says the pilot lamp and the on lamp is not working (not sure what pilot lamp is)
The single basket is missing

The pressure works stops at 1.3 bars, so should be good

Is it hard to change the lamps and what do i need?

I recommend you go check out www.espressocare.com  

They have the exploded diagrams for the machine and have most of the parts for repairs.

You may want to check and consider replacing the gaskets in the piston while you are in the repair mode.

Enjoy.

Thanks for the help i found most things. How about the power switch do i need to change that if the lamp is not working, i guess so...
And the sign i guess he means part a-57, not sure how that can be missing but will ask the seller and on espresso care because espresso care didn't have that part.
