Espresso machines aren’t hard to come by, but they sure aren’t cheap either. It doesn’t matter the brand or the quality, these machines supply us with java every day and most people would be lost without them. Now, what happens when that espresso machine breaks down and we don’t want to dish out the money for a new one? Chances are repair services are cheaper, or you can simply do it yourself!

  1. Espresso Machine repair doesn’t sound like it has a big market, but it does, it’s an appliance and in almost every city there’s a handful of appliance stores willing to repair or replace your broken appliance. Any half decent appliance store can tell you what’s wrong with your espresso machine and/or fix it for a decent price. It trumps having to buy an entirely different machine, any day of the week.
  2. Learn to repair your Espresso machine yourself, tutorials on this can be found online through Google searches or even Youtube searches. But if you aren’t willing to do the research yourself, here’s a couple things to look out for when repairing your machine. The first step is diagnosing the problem to see if it can even be fixed properly, cracked equipment will likely call for an entirely new replacement, but if it’s a few bunk fires and some wrong cabling? You’re golden. Chances are you might just need a couple new wires that cost next to nothing compared to buying the whole machine. If you are still struggling to find the issue after double-checking wiring, cables, and overall structure of your machine, either take it to an appliance store or kiss your java goodbye for a couple days until you finally break and get a new one.
  3. Depending on the espresso machine and the kind of repair needed, you can call your everyday appliance man to come check it out. You know the guys that fix your dishwasher or your washing machine? It’s likely they can fix your Espresso Machines as well, although this option is a little less cost-effective.

If none of these options are working for you and you feel like you’ve got to bite the bullet, don’t fret, there are some reasonably cheap Espresso Machines available online these days that won’t break the bank. Java is our way of life but sometimes life just won’t work out the way we want it to. If these troubleshooting tips don’t help and you still feel jipped, there might still be a warranty on your machine that can save quite a few bucks. In the future, whenever such a hefty purchase is being made it’s smart to keep the receipt and add a warranty if possible to avoid problems like these. Until then, there’s not a single city or town without a coffee shop in it, so you’re not entirely out of luck yet.
