The boiler in my Isomac corroded and broke.  I can't buy a replacement boiler so I'm planning on a new machine.

So I'm hoping that someone could use the parts.  The shell is fine.  The electronics were working.  Free, but local pick up only--no shipping. I'm in Jersey City, NJ.

I e-mailed a relative who lives around your area. Right now he is using an sbdu. Are replacement boilers available for your machine?

Hi, Im in Montclair NJ. I could come get it this afternoon. What version is it? I, 2 or 3?

Have been looking to spend $400 for a used Hx machine. If I find the boiler will it work fine or does it need more work?

I can be reached at 973-951-1469

Thanks!

Ricardo

This would be a pretty good deal for someone who wants to invest the money in a new boiler and has the skills to do the replacement. My Relax uses the same boiler, and it appears that machines of this vintage will develop leaks at the joint of the fittings and the boiler. My boiler gave out, and so I was debating the cost-effectiveness of a new boiler.

Isomac no longer makes the copper boiler (likely because of these failures). The replacement is stainless steel, and will likely last forever.

Replacement boilers are about $500 - see this part from Stefano's EspressoCare.

For me, it was worth not buying the boiler and saving the money for an upgrade instead. But, for someone looking to move into a HX E61 machine, $500 investment should be pretty good.

Note that if you buy a used copper boiler, it will likely eventually develop the same problem.

Stefano says "out of stock".  !st-line lists the boiler for $350 and says they have 1 in stock. If it is the boiler one would need is not in my knowledge base.

Stefano often carries used in good shape parts that may not be listed on his site, might be worth giving him a call/email.
