I have a chance to snag one of these Euro 2k Jr's but I have not been able to see any info about it since late 2004.  Even though it is for a very tempting price if I can't get parts and it breaks then I'm out the whole deal.

Thoughts and suggestions please....


Thanks,
Alex

The Euro 2000 Junior uses mainly non-proprietary parts; standard E61 style group, Giemme box, Ulka pump, Mater stat etc.

Even in the worst case, if the heat exchanger splits and assuming you couldn't get a boiler from Euro 2000 you would probably be able to fit one from a similar E61/HX machine, something like an Isomac or Giotto for example.

I picked up 2 Euro 2K Jrs. One has been my daily use machine for the last 3 years and it's been very reliable, easy to use, and consistent. The other is in parts in my basement, still awaiting a refurb.


Yes, most of the electro/mechanical/plumbing parts are standard...however the proprietary parts (drip tray, top tray, steam & water wands, gaskets) are very difficult to find. There are no US dealers/parts that I'm aware of, and the North American distributor (Caffe Tech, in Canada) has a limited (and expensive) stock remaining. The next time I'm in Milan, I should check to see if the "factory" still exists and has any leftover bits.

I'll probably be changing out the steam wand at some point because the current one is leaking (and the seal is unobtainable) and to improve the ergonomics.

It is a nice machine, but you are right to be concerned about finding replacement parts.  Fortunately, as Ian and methyltheobromine point out, most of the parts are non-proprietary.  IMO, the only troubling parts are the steam and water valves.

Caffe Tech's listing of parts includes the heating element and steam and water wands:http://caffetech.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=euro2000&x=0&y=0
There is not much that can go wrong with the drip tray, however if you somehow managed to damage it, any metal shop could help you out.

I don't know what can go wrong with valves other than the valve seats and methyltheobromine's link shows how that can be addressed.  If the valve itself were damaged somehow, I imagine that with some rework of the tube between the boiler and the valve (it's just copper tubing after all)  the whole thing could be replaced with an Isomac valve.
