Digital display has stopped working rendering the machine useless


The coffee machine's digital display has stopped working and I have been quoted by the Broome WA service agent $400 to repair. The machine is only three years old and in our opinion the display should last the life of the machine which cost around...

2nd time had to send it for repair


Our machine is 5 years old, we had it repaired the first time 2 years ago, it cost us $250 and now it is spoilt again. We got a quote $350. Honestly how can one justify $600 for repairs in 5 years. We only have one person in our home that drinks...

Very dissappointed in this machine - Philips Saeco Customer Service is very poor


repairs meant a lemon and machine should have been replaced. Not so with Philips Saeco. Lets try and drive the buyer mad. We had to heat our coffee in the microwave to get a decent cup of coffee. The brew unit is fine but the milk frothing mechanism in...
