Is it electronic? If it is just a glorified heater, it might not care about either.
Come-on Russ; If it is just a coffee maker it shouldn't matter.My boss wants to hook up his Italian Expresso machine from the old country here In the US.
After some research found that voltage conversion from 240 to 220 was cheap but 60 to 50 hertz would be expensive. I found a unit that does this for the price of four Italian coffee makers or six American models.
Any creative solutions out there? I want to piece together a unit like the high cost variable Voltage/frequency unit set to my requirements only.
I don't think that a slighter frequency will destroy a resistor.I don't trust the higher voltage and frequency won't skew the brew. Or worse cook the unit.
It is totally a heater, but maybe with a pump, but 10 cycles won't hurt.I have only looked at the electrical data plate. I know not of its components. I will look into what is really inside. Heater, water valve, cream pump,
