Life of a Jura coffee machine
My wife and I owned a Jura Impressa coffee machine for 6 and a half years. We brewed over 6500 cups of coffee and never had it serviced once. It eventually died of leaks, forgetting to brew the right amount of coffee and - finally - never allowing coffee to be made as it was locked in an "empty grounds" mode. A few phone calls revealed that it was not going to make economic sense to have it fixed. It cost about £700 new so it's annual cost was just over £100 (barring filters and the like).
We have just replaced it with a new Jura ENA 7 and are very happy with it. My question is - do we get it serviced regularly and if we do is it likely to last so much longer than the machine that was never serviced as to make financial sense? What are the experiences of others? My maxim has been "if it ain't broke don't fix it" and "don't take things apart to find out why they are still working" but this may have cost me more money in the long run.
They said it couldn't be done ... so I didn't do it.
