Tip #1 You surely know it too...

... sometimes, it’s little tricks and ruses that solve a problem.

Most technical problems can be solved with simple measures, which are listed in the operating instructions for your appliance. There, you will find frequently asked questions with the corresponding solutions.

If you no longer have the instructions for your appliance, you can download them from the product page for the appliance under the Service tab.

Should your appliance or the instructions for the appliance not be on our website, please email us at info(at)gastroback.co.uk.

or click here to complete a contact form.

 

Tip #2 Are you experiencing a technical problem with your Gastroback espresso machine?

Recommendation for setting the grinding degree and correct tamper/contact pressure for the 42619 - Design Espresso Advanced Barista

  • Please always set the grinding degree to COARSE Level 11 at the start (turn the grinding wheel fully to the left).
  • Then, gradually adjust the grinding degree if required by turning the grinding adjuster more gently in small stages.
  • If possible, always adjust the grinding degree while the grinder is running.
  • Grind 3 portions with the new grinding degree setting in order to set the grinder.
  • Tamper at a low contact pressure at first (max. 5 kg) to get a feel for the correct contact pressure.

 

Every barista knows one thing: taste is subjective. Experiment with the grinding degree, the grinding quantity and the contact pressure until you find your preferred setting.

 

Descaling is absolutely essential

The most common cause of faults in an espresso machine is insufficient descaling. Normal use of the appliance can lead to limescale developing in the appliance’s water tank and water system and impair the water flow.

You will find descaling instructions in the operating instructions for your appliance.

If you no longer have the instructions for your appliance, you can download the instructions for the appliance from its product page at gastroback.de under the Service & FAQ tabs, free of charge. Should your appliance or the instructions for the appliance not be on our website, please email us at info(at)gastroback.co.uk

Have you already descaled your appliance and the problem remains?

Please send Gastroback products to the following address for repair and service processing:

ElectriFixIt

Please do not send goods back to us without the return having been prepaid as this will make processing considerably more difficult for us. We would be happy to provide you with a DPD return label. If you use the return label, we will gladly cover the return shipping costs for you.

Sending appliances: Please package the appliance so that it is transport-proof and include the proof of guarantee, as well as a brief description of the fault.

Before sending an appliance to use for inspection, please use the FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) on our website and the fault catalogue in the operating instructions. Should you not find the answer to your question or the fault, please contact our service team.

In most cases, we are able to establish the cause of the fault after analysing your information and can potentially help you with replacement parts or give you a few operating tips.

If necessary, we will arrange for the product to be returned to our service workshop for repair. This avoids unnecessary returns and wait times.

 

Process for returns:
