Elektra T1 Sixties Deliziosa 1 Group Commercial Espresso Machine


If it is good enough for discerning cafe owners, then it has to be great for your home! The main feature of the Elektra T1 in a commercial environment is its extreme compactness. This is the result of a design study in placing a whopping 5.5 liter boiler into a small body frame.

Would you prefer to upgrade to a similarly designed dual boiler espresso machine instead? Then check out the Elektra Verve!

This is the new version of the Elektra T1

It does not have a pressurestat to regulate the boiler pressure which is directly proportional to the temperature of the boiler and water in the heat exchanger. This espresso machine has an additional probe in the steam boiler. This probe connects to an electronic controller which regulates the boiler steam pressure. It also will save the heating element from damage from a lack of water in the machine’s boiler.  For example, the water company shuts off the water supply due to a water main break.

Other new features on the T1!

This machine is so new that we still have not learned all the programmability of this newly designed machine. Shown below, the touchpad with a K has a series of lights. These lights in program mode can indicate which menu the machine is in. The black electronic control box that has a single series of lights exemplifies the particular setting the machine is in for the particular menu on the touchpad. We will post more here as we learn the different features.

Night Cycle Programming!

The Elektra T1 has a programming feature that can record the top of the hour. With this program, you can also program the top of the hour for the machine to go into Night Cycle (reduced energy usage) and to wake up in the morning (on the hour) to full power. This avoids the need for a separate timer which blasts full power to the machine’s circuitry upon startup.

This machine’s high wattage heating element is desired to heat the boiler quickly for quick recovery and temperature stability. The Sixties Series even generates a lot of heat to keep those cups nice and toasty on top – you may want to place this machine with an open overhead area. With a direct water line connection, you never have to worry about filling any water tank, but you do have to remember to recharge the water softener and change the water filter.

More Features:
  • Beautiful Ultra-polished stainless steel finish.
  • Incorporated motor and positive (rotary vane) displacement pump with vibration-damping fastening.
  • Double electronic level control system monitors the water level in the boiler to make sure heating element is submerged in water.
  • The patented heat exchange system is accessible above the boiler for easy inspection and cleaning.
  • Filter on the grouphead removed any large contaminants that may have passed through a broken filter on the water line.
  • The multi-directional steam wand allows movement of steam wand in many different directions.
  • The steam valve and water valve have pivotal lever controls.
  • Dual-acting, high-precision gauge shows both pump pressure and boiler pressure.
  • Heating element with safety thermostat for additional protection.
  • NEW wood handle on portafilter and steam/hot water joystick controls.
  • Accessories: 1-cup and 2 -cup filter baskets, single spout portafilter, double spout portafilter, instruction manual, and stainless steel braided hose for direct water connection.

Espresso Machine Warning:

  • ELECTRICAL WARNING: To avoid electrical damage to this espresso machine which is not considered a manufacturer's defect, please acquire and install a single-outlet surge suppressor rated at 1080 joules or higher. the lack of the recommended surge suppressor, the espresso machine can be damaged at the power switch, the electronics, the heating element, the pressurstat or the wiring inside.
  • WATER WARNING: To increase the useful life of and not damage your espresso machine, please use softened water. Softened water is water without calcium and without magnesium, but still has other minerals for espresso extraction. Do not use distilled water, purified water, nor reverse osmosis water as these types of water create oxidation with the metals and cause the same damaging effects as limescale.
  • DESCALING WARNING: We do not recommend descaling unless there is an issue with the espresso machine. The reason is that too much descaling can eat away at the metals and gaskets inside an espresso machine.

  1. Caution: All surfaces are hot and can cause burns.
  2. Environment: This machine is intended for home use only. It doesn't have the capacity, nor the approvals, for commercial use.
  3. Upon receiving: Elektra informed us that every one of their home machines is tested with water and coffee to insure there are no leaks under pressure and to insure proper operation when received by the customer. Although they clean each grouphead to the best of their ability, you may find some coffee grinds in the grouphead or on the machine when dislodged from the grouphead during shipping.
  4. Some assembly required: The steam needs to be installed on the machine using a wrench. To prevent scratches, put a cloth between the wrench and the steam wand nut.
  5. Boiler pressure: The normal operating boiler pressure read on the gauge is between .75 and 1.2. However, the manufacturer has been asked for machines produced in the USA to set the maximum pressure to approximately 0.9 so the most flavorful espresso can be extracted. Over time, the manufacturer's setting can change as the machine ages. In addition, if the boiler pressure reads 1.4 and up to 1.5, this is a symptom of limescale buildup from calcium/magnesium in the water or oxidation from purified/RO water. In this case, the machines will need to be descaled and the pressurestat will need to be replaced after the descaling. Limescale buildup or oxidation can occur in as little as 1 week from use.
  6. Water choice: Please note that it is very important to use 'softened water' in these machines, as well as all espresso machines. Hard water will cause these machines to malfunction, and Elektra will not cover the parts warranty due to hard water. In addition, it is extremely important to run the a leva and Semiautomatica machines with water at least 25% full in the sight glass. Running these models with a water level lower than this can cause heating element damage which will not be covered under warranty as this is not a manufacturer's defect. If you return the unit with a damaged heating element, you will be charged for the repair, and the repair charge will be deducted from the credit.
  7. Body finish:
    1. Elektra espresso machines feature a high polish finish, with materials ranging from chrome to copper to brass. Most parts are clear-coated. Special attention is required when cleaning.
    2. Hash products can eat away at the clear coat or even etch the chromed finish.
    3. Descaling solution can eat clean through plating.
    4. Paint remover can be used to remove the paint from copper and brass parts.
    5. Elektra uses varnish to paint the parts.
    6. The exterior color, which includes a clear coat finish, will naturally change as each each Elektra machine ages. This would not be covered under warranty as color changes are not considered manufacturer's defects.
  8. Sight glass fluctuation: The water in the boiler is not used to make coffee. The water to make coffee comes directly from the reservoir and passes through a pipe in the bottom boiler for flash heating. If cold water passes through this pipe, the change in temperature will cause the boiler water (sight glass) to fluctuate. The only time the water level in the sight glass should change is when
    1. the steamer is used and the water level drops, or
    2. the red button on the left hand side of the base is depressed and held to refill the boiler.
  9. Safety reset: There is a safety feature on this machine when water is not pumped into the boiler on initial startup. If this isn't done the safety kicks off and the machine will have to be reset. On the bottom of the machine underneath the yellow cap there is a reset button for the safety thermostat. If you purchased the machine from us and are still having issues, you can email us for instructions.

Warranty Information

Who handles the warranty

Eligible warranty for Elektra home equipment is handled by 1st-line Equipment or representative thereof. If you have purchased your Elektra equipment from another retailer (not 1st-line Equipment), you must contact them first in order to get your equipment serviced under warranty.

What does the warranty cover

The warranty is limited to manufacturer’s defects only.

Regarding espresso machines: Limescale buildup can lead to problems with your machine. The warranty will not cover any repairs if our technicians find limescale in your machine. Although descaling can be a good alternative to remove limescale causing minerals (calcium and magnesium), we strongly suggest that prevention is the best form of maintenance. The reason is that descalers can cause wear and tear on components inside an espresso machine. This includes gaskets, o-rings, and other metal components. However, where there is a clog somewhere, descaling will be a necessity on the specified part, area, or entire machine.

Regarding coffee grinders: As with all coffee grinders, it is very important to only change grind settings when the unit is powered on and the burrs are in motion. If you do not do this, the burrs will ‘gunk’ up and require cleaning by you every time this occurs. Changing the grind settings when the burrs are not in motion will render the grinder to only produce very coarse grinds or no grinds at all. If this result occurs, this will be considered operator error for lack of following directions, and not be classified as a defective grinder.

When does the warranty expire

The manufacturer’s warranty on new equipment is good for a period of 1 year from date of receipt which covers parts. Labor warranties may vary depending on the company you purchase from. Elektra products may have an extended warranty limited to manufacturer’s defect and will specifically state the extended period of time on your receipt.

Where will my equipment be serviced

In most cases, your Elektra equipment must be sent to a repair facility. If 1st-line Equipment will be servicing your equipment, you must either ship it or drop off at our facility in New Jersey.

How do I send in my equipment in for repair

If you are inside the warranty period and have purchased it from us, please contact us. Please be ready to provide the following information: invoice# of purchase, model of equipment, and a detailed description of the issue.

If you are outside the warranty period, whether you have purchased the equipment from us or not, please order a diagnosis. Please note that wait times can be up to 8 weeks. Our technical support staff can have a back log of repairs. As an alternative we have a listing of 3rd party repair companies across the USA that can assist you.

      Sorry, the night cycle programming occurs for all days of the week - it can not be programmed with different times for each day.

      We believe the night cycle programming locks the user from any usage. The reason is for security. However, we will have to double check if Elektra made any changes on the last batch.

      Thanks for the inquiry. Should the manufacturer be responsible if the person installed it incorrectly? Should the manufacturer be responsible if other parts of the machine damaged the old control board as well as the new one? Hence, it states on our web site that parts are not returnable and non-refundable and no warranty.

      Our only other option is to not sell control boards and just have everyone ship their machine in for repair. In addition, there were customers who in the past would send back their old defective boards back claiming the new one was defective. A similar event happened recently when a customer tried to return a set of AFTERMARKET Mazzer grinding burrs, which he claimed did not fit his grinder, that were not the originals (OEM) Mazzer burrs we shipped out and had taken a photo of before shipping. This is also why we place serial number stickers.

      As stated, the control board may not be your issue. It is  a needle in the haystack to source the cause, and this is why we already recommended in a previous answer to have a professional evaluate the machine.

      Sorry to hear about this. Heating issues can range from safety thermostats, failed wiring, defective heating element or a heating element past its useful life cycle, defective brain unit, defective pressurstat or PID sensor (depending upon model). In essence, we are sorry to say that it can become a needle in a haystack.

      A I see you mention that you have a newer Elektra T1 machine. I currently have one that I purchased from you in 2012. Is there a newer model then the 2012 version?
      Answered by the admin

      Sorry, many manufacturers and Elektra do not warranty electrical parts because they can be damaged upon install or another component in the machine can damage the electronic board box. Considering the age of the machine, it is probably best a professional look at it.

      These machines can last up to 15 or even 20 years. The repair facility probably does not want to touch it because the cause you described can be a lot of time chasing down the multiple problem electrical areas of the machine. We are unable to determine if it is worthwhile fixing or not because we are unsure how many electrical components may be needed.

      In towards the back, there is a reset (back side of white part) on the black internal frame. Unplug the unit, and push it in. If it clicks, your machine may be ok. If not, this may be the first part that needs replacement with the understanding one or more other components may need to be changed.

      The steam valve uses a spring that engages a washer to engage or disengage.

      Boiler is copper.

      As any espresso machine gets older, the causes of issues can get more complex. Very complex situations are outside the scope of our support after the warranty has expired as a professional should evaluate the machine. The main reason is that customers will end up on a wild goose chase buying so many parts that may not be needed and are not returnable (not returnable because we can not test electronics and we also do not want to resell parts that were tried on other machines for repair).

      The cause here may not be so obvious.  In other words, the sensor may not be bad, but the water TDS may have changed or the wiring or auto refill brain unit may be bad. We can only suggest descaling the machine, cleaning the sensor on the lower front portion of the boiler before having a professional evaluate it.

      On the bottom tube of part #14, there are two little holes - one on the side and one on bottom. Both need to be cleared as this would create the issues you are experiencing.

      Otherwise, it is the quality of the water being used - limescale build up or oxidation on the metals.

      Lastly, if the problem still persists, the unit would need to be evaluated by a professional.

      The two sensors are for minimum and maximum water level. Both can be cleaned as this 'may' the issue with the clicking sound.

      Since there are multiple versions of the same model machines, we can only provide a link to the diagrams so each custoemr look up their particular model.

      As for the clicking sound, it can be a solenoid valves, brain unit, the water level sensors or wiring. Unfortunately, there are no tests for this other replacing the parts one at a time - old school style.
