    Livia 90 Repairs - Is this Legit??

    Hi All,


    In an overzealous attempt to clean my brew head on my trusty 8 year old livia 90, I turned it upside down and over did it with hot water--some got into the electronics.


    For days it would short out... then each day it would stay on longer to a max of 5 minutes then short.


    I brought it into a reputable espresso repair shop (I won't mention the name, as thus far they seem real nice) and got a quote. Seems CRAZY high... can you chime in on:


    1) Do the repairs seem legit?
    2) Is the repair price reasonable?
    3) Is it worth to fix?


    Here is the quote:

    [*]WATER LEVEL ELECTRONIC BOX $ 256.28 [*]SOLID ST RELAY 25A SPST VAC INPUT N.O. 24-280 VAC PANEL MOUNT $ 58.00 [*]Autofill Probe $ 21.04 1 [*]VACUUM VALVE 1/4 $ 16.46[*]SHOWER SCREEN RANCILIO $ 12.00 [*]gasket $ 10.00 [*]espresso machine Steam Valve gasket $ 4.50[*]ESPRESSO MACHINE SERVICE (PER HR) $75.00 (1 hour)
    Replace all above parts and clean group head on


    Total with tax: $491.28!!!


    What say you more knowledgeable folk?
