Don’t freeze your machine.

This Nuova Simonelli came in for a “tune-up”.  Just a do over to make sure it was still in suitable working order.  Being in storage for over 4 years.  My first question was: “did it freeze?”  Costumer said no, I doubt it.

Ok, the element was half dead, and it needed a good descaling but alas it all of a sudden became very sad.  One of the heat exchangers was torn open in 2 places due to ice jacking.DSCF0772DSCF0782DSCF0829

 

 

 

The machine obviously froze.  Heat exchangers are not changeable in this model so the entire boiler will have to be replaced.  The bill just tripled.  At this point the costumer might want to rethink saving this machine.
