I can relate. :?

I recently had a problem with my Micro Casa Semi Automatica SXCD. I live in the the UK and I too found it almost impossible to identify an experienced engineer who could repair my machine despite searching the net for hours. I eventually emailed Elektra for a recommendation. Within two or three days I received an email from Frashell Ltd [frank456@(deletethis)btconnect.com], contact details below. Elektra had advised Frasheel Ltd of my problem. I phoned Frank at Frashell and asked a number of technical questions to ensure that he was familiar with these machines. All my questions were answered in full. I duly sent my machine via courier for repair. The service Frashell Ltd has provided has been superb and I would highly recommend them.

One important note: Do keep your original packing. Unfortunately I had thrown mine away just two weeks beforehand. I have owned the machine for 5 years. Although I made a pretty good job of packing the machine up, the couriers still managed to damage the machine. The decorative water tank is made of brass coated in Chrome and it was compressed during transport. Frank took it to a panel beater who repaired it at no cost to myself. The machine was repaired at a very reasonable cost and the pressure and temperature was fully bench tested before being returned to me within a week. Fantastic service and highly recommended.

Moderator note.....

It is not wise to post an email address in a public forum. The scan bots will pick it up in seconds and the addressee will end up with 600 spam emails the next day. I added (deletethis) in the address to spoof the spam bots. If you want to send an email, simply copy and paste the address and delete (deletethis) from the address.
