These are some common tools used to work on this device. You might not need every tool for every procedure.
Background and Identification
These machines are from Eugster Manufactures, as are Bosch/Siemens and Nivona, which are very much alike in construction. Once you have opened the Caffeo Solo, repairs are virtually identical to Siemens/Bosch and Nivona, the brewing unit is the same.
Melitta models do not include a water filter, but they can be purchased separately. There are Caffeo Solo models with an included milk foaming system (called Melitta Caffeo Solo & Perfect Milk), which have a foamed milk jet and tube on the right side of the coffee machine. The Perfect Milk models also include a hot water spout, while other variants do not. The Solo's brewing unit is removable to make cleaning easier. The machine includes an adjustable height spout and three adjustable brewing temperature settings. The machine outputs approximately 1 to 7.4 ounces of espresso during each use, and its water tank can hold up to 40 fluid ounces.
Each Caffeo Solo model has its own serial number similar to the white variant's serial number (E 950-103 ). The Caffeo Solo comes in black (with a silver front panel), black (with just a silver spout cover) pure black, red, and blue. The Caffeo Solo includes the name "Melitta" in cursive font on the spout cover, and the name "Caffeo Solo" in capital letters in the bottom right corner of the LED display.
